Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Super Rich Foot Cream claims to be the ultimate in foot creams. Enriched with luxurious Shea butter, avocado oil and eucalyptus, this cream is designed to massage away rough heels and leave them baby soft.
- Petrolatum - a.k.a. petroleum jelly, Vaseline, or mineral oil, this product is derived from oil products and is a very common emollient. The jury is still out in Canada on whether this is a safe product or not, but in the EU petrolatum is only allowed if it is manufactured under certain restrictions.
- Shea butter - a super rich moisturizing ingredient derived from the oil of the Shea tree
- Olive fruit oil - conditions and moisturizes skin
I think it's a great sign that unlike many others, all the "star ingredients" here actually make up a majority of this product. Shea butter, olive oil and avocado oil are natural ingredients used for centuries as moisturizers and safe alternatives to many modern ingredients.
Price & Packaging
Nothing fancy with this product - it's your basic squeeze tube. $21 will provide you with a huge 236 mL bottle, which is tons since you'll only be using this really as a spot treatment for the heels, soles and toes of your feet.
There are many things to love about this product. Firstly, it has this thick, rich texture that feels almost like super soft butter. Normally I don't like using buttery moisturizers as they're hard to spread and apply on skin, but for a small area like feet, it's perfect.
This cream also has a nice refreshing smell due to its orange, grapefruit, and eucalyptus oils. The smell is a tangy blend of citrus and mint that perks up the senses.
Since I've been going barefoot and in sandals everyday, I've been spreading this cream on my feet first thing in the morning and just before bed and I have to say, I adore this cream. It does take awhile to absorb, but it really does work. My rough patches feel so much softer and when I paired this cream with the Bath and Body Works Effervescent Foot Soak, my feet felt almost baby-like!!
