After hearing my complain night after night my manfriend went to Lush and picked up The Fair Trade Foot Lotion and Volcano Foot Mask for me. Lush is where I run to in most emergency if I am being honest – their products always make me a little bit happier. Lush products should be on prescription instead of prozac.
The Fair Trade Foot Lotion does resemble pepto but it smells gorgeous. It is a hard scent to pin down but trust me that it is great.
Ugh, it is such a great feeling to come home after a hard day and cake your feet in this (or to have someone cake your feet in it). It cures horrible throbbing feet and achy ankles.
This is a little stranger, the manfriend was told by the sales assistant in Lush that it smelt a bit funky and he was certainly right. It contains tomato and that is what I’d say it comes closest to smelling like – it is not very pleasant at all but it is pleasant on the feet. It is the non icy equivalent of sticking your feet in to an icy bucket – bliss. What I done was coat my feet in Volcano and then soak them in a basin of hot water.
It is a bit like plastering your feet but it is worth it. My only other complaint besides the smell is that it is quite messy, obviously putting a foot mask on yourself can be rather tricky in not getting it all over the furniture. I tried doing it in the bath once but it ended up being a bit of a hassle. I would suggest having someone to help you out with this one.
