AD – Gifted.
This post contains gifted items from Palmer’s which have been marked in line with my disclaimer.
Winter is well and truly behind us and we are now in Spring or nearly summer at the end of this month. I mean it’s a bit mad that we are already in June isn’t it, wasn’t it like February like yesterday?
I have talked about Palmer’s products on my blog before with the cocoa butter range which I am absolutely still in love with, I don’t think any other brand has helped my skin more than Palmer’s. They recently sent over some of thier footcare products over to me to test out and as we are now basically in holiday season my feet need to be ready for anything so I was very pleased when the products turned up at my door.
After wearing boots and trainers all winter I’m sure everyone’s feet really need some TLC at the beginning of spring and that’s where the new Coconut Oil Formula Footcare collection from Palmer’s comes in. I don’t think I’m the only one to say I neglect my feet in winter but it’s so easily done because with wearing boots/trainers etc nobody can see them so why would you take care of them?
I now have a little footcare rountine with my Palmer’s products and my feet have never looked and felt better.
Coconut Sugar Foot Scrub
I’ve used foot scrubs before but I’ve always found them harsh so I’ve stayed away from them and just tend to use creams but the coconut sugar foot scrub is actually very smooth compared to others I’ve tried in the past. The product itself is quite thick but it exfoliates and buffs away all the dead skin and I could actually see little dead peices of skin coming off from my feet when using it so I know it’s working which I love.
The foot scrub contains raw natural coconut sugar which I thought was going to give off a really strong smell but it’s actually really nice and not overpowering at all. The soothing perpermint oil smoothes and then the coconut oil locks in the moisture. This foot scrub is definitely a must if you have dry feet!
Coconut Water Foot Cream
Foot cream of any kind I use on probably a weekly basis normally on a Sunday which is when I always have a little pamper night. It seems like everyone has set days for a pamper night am I right? Anyway, I’ve been using the coconut water foot cream for a few weeks now and it’s super hydrating and really makes my feet super soft after using the scrub.
The foot cream is enriched with Vitamin E like the rest of the range and I find it best to use after my shower then I’ll do my skincare/feet routine and put on some cotton socks overnight and you will find you wake up with baby soft skin the next morning! It’s the perfect cream to keep your feet soft and smooth.
Coconut Oil Foot Oil
I am obsessed with using oils to keep my skin feeling hydrated and to lock-in all the moisture and the lovely new Palmer’s foot oil is no different. I didn’t used to use oil on my feet before trying this, I use oil in my hair, on my face but I’ve never thought to use one for my feet. After I have used the foot cream that’s when I use this to seal everything in and keep the moisture. It’s also fast drying so there’s no need to sit there for ages with your feet dangling off the bed while scrollimg through social media like me..
When your feet are in need of some extra care, oil is the way to go oh & it’s always a bonus when the product smells amazing because it does. Even when my feet haven’t needed any extra care I’ll just use it anyway because I love the smell. Oh well.
But let’s not forget about Palmer’s footcare classics..
Cocoa Butter Formula Heel Repair
The heel repair is honestly one of my top products from Palmer’s. I was very lucky to be sent the heel repair in March and ever since then it’s been in my handbag every single day and I was getting through it so quick that I’m thankful I now have another to replace it.
It’s super easy to apply as it just pops up and then there’s a little concave which you then apply to your heels. It does rub off quite easily but it doesn’t take two seconds to just apply a little more. It’s amazing for taking away dry skin and leaving your heels super smooth. Oh and I have also found it helps on your knees and elbows too even thought that’s not what the product is for but if it works why not?
Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic Cream
I use the magic cream just after using the Magnitone Well Healed Pedicure System and it helps to soften and revitalise my feet although when I first used this product I was so surprised as to how thick it was, genuinely surprised, it’s super thick and creamy. It works really well as an overnight mask for your feet if you wear cotton socks then you wake up with beautifully soft feet (trust me).
It also contains peppermint oil and mango butter which definitely comes out as you apply the product, I don’t really love scent but that’s just because I’m not a massive fan of peppermint soo.. You really don’t need a lot as a little goes a long way, it’s so soothing for your feet after a long day.
Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic Scrub
I love the tiny little flecks of pumice in the foot scrub, it’s very similar to the coconut sugar foot scrub but obviously infused with cocoa butter and Vitamin E instead. The natural exfoliants work to buff away even the toughest skin leaving them super soft.
It’s definitely gentle enough to not cause any irratation but firm enough to remove those dead skin cells. This is a good product if you have really dry and rough heels and feet!
I love that all these products are full size but you could still take them on holiday as they are the perfect size at under 100ml.
