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 :)
