Palmer’s Foot Magic: A foot cream that’s bound to bewitch you, mainly because it makes your feet smell like After Eight mints.
A few years ago, I wrote about my footcare staple: Boots Deep Moisturising Foot Cream – and people still love reading that post today. So, I thought I’d share with you this new foot cream that I picked up on Amazon a few weeks ago.
Why did I buy it when I always have the Boots one at hand? Because I was buying a few other skincare bits on Amazon and I felt bad for having too small an order to get the delivery driver out for, so I added a few more bits to my basket to bulk up my order, ease my guilt, and make his trip seem less worthless. Also, I lack self-control when it comes to online shopping…
Palmer’s Foot Magic Foot Cream
What’s it like then?
It’s really thick and gloopy. You need a penny-sized dollop to smear all over your foot. I’d warm it up between your palms first so that it spreads more easily across your feet.
It smells amazing. (We’ve already been through this, so I won’t keep banging on about it.)
As you can see from the packaging, it’s got peppermint oil and mango butter in it, as well as vitamin E and cocoa butter. (Obviously.)
Does it soothe tired feet? Yeah, it does. It’s very moisturising. So much so, you’d slip over on a wooden floor if you weren’t wearing socks after applying it. (Trust me on this.)
I smear some of this Palmer’s Foot Magic on before bed, with bedsocks on for a while afterwards, which I take off before I actually get into bed. (As an aside, am I the only one out there who just can’t tolerate wearing socks in bed?)
When I wake up, my feet are noticeably softer.
I’ve actually been struggling with really dry skin on my feet and lower legs lately, so this is doing wonders for sorting out my tootsies. It’s also good for cracked heels, if that’s something that you struggle with.
If you’re looking for something thicker than the Boots foot cream, that’s also quite affordable, you should definitely give this a try.
If you fancy trying this lovely foot cream too, you can find it on Amazon for £4.
