When it comes to the winter season (and most of the summer), I always forget about my feel. In the summer I make sure that my toe nails are painted because unpainted toe nails and sandals isn't a good look. I have had these products for the year - I brought them in good intentions as I was going to pedicure my feet every so often over the summer, but I am just super lazy. So I thought the other day now my feet are going to live in boots, I thought I would give them a one last treat. 

Firstly I get a bowl of pretty hot water, I like it as hot as I can handle. I add the Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak to the water. They are like salt granules and I leave my feet to soak for 10-20 minutes. It isn't over powering in smell but it does soothe your feet without having to do anything. The salts disintegrate into the water - I usually wait for this to happen before removing my feet. 

Next I lift one up out of the water and begin to massage in the scrub. The Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub is a weird spongey texture. You need to make sure your feet are wet enough for the scrub to work into the feet, sometimes you need to add a little extra water. I scrub as much as I can and then rinse my feet off in the water. It isn't the best scrub I have ever used but it does make my feet super soft!

Once I have tried them, I use a liberal amount of the Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion, which is OK but there are a lot nicer ones on the market at the moment. All that said, it smells quite nice for peppermint (not my favourite scent). I can't quite decide what I don't really like about the product but I know that I don't like it. It is possibly because the formula is quite thin and runny plus it doesn't last keeping your feet soft. 

The Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray is an added extra, I don't use it that much (unless my boyfriend has been working in the rain and I need to smell proof his feet). Or if I have been on my feet all day whether it is summer and my feet have got hot or winter and they've been stuck in boots all day - I tend to spray them with this and it does the trick. I have never used or tried other ones. I tend to just buy this and repurchase when it is finish as I do really like it :)

What are your pedicure tips?

  3. Hi Lacey!
    I got a a few of these BS products as a gift a while ago, but like you, I seem to forget and neglect my poor tootsie, other than polish. Its now coming into Summer here and my poor feet are so dry! Thanks so much for you review - you've gotten me keen to try out my products now! You mentioned you prefer other foot creams - would you mind sharing a favourite or two?
    Thanks so much for your comment too!
    Hugs, Sway xxx

  23. I so need a pedicure. I usually try to get one ever few weeks but it has been forever since I have made the time to. And my feet are hating me for it. Maybe I need to pick up some of these products and try to give myself a pedicure at home.

  25. I just love the smell of peppermint :) They look like great products. I really need to start spending and caring for my feet, all I do is moisturise and occasionaly use a pumice stone!!


  26. I don't do nearly enough with taking care of my feet. This sounds like quite a process and possibly worth it during the summer.

  27. i don't really have good pedicure tips, so i am really really glad i read this post, thanks! :D
