Tried and Tested – Footcreams for Oscar winning Feet!

March 6, 2010

Red carpet season is well and truly upon us, and that means for us lesser bombshells, spring is in the air, and out feet are going to be on show after a long winter in heavy boots!

So, we need to take care of them. Yesterday we told you how to pedicure your feet to Oscar-winning standards.

Today, we bring you our Tried and Tested footcreams! Bombshells must look good from head to toe after all, just like Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes!

Nails Inc Mexican Lime Foot Cream, £10, www.lookfantastic.com

Beautiful fresh smell, moisturises pretty well, but didn’t seem to gibe the deep moisturisation this bombshell’s poor feet needed! The big plus point is no traditional peppermint foot cream smell.

Champneys Perfect Pedicure Intensive Foot Butter, £8, www.champneys.com

Really really rich – you can just imagine Betty Grable layering this on to her feet, keeping them in as great shape as those legs – it’s blend of skin conditioning shea and olive butters combine with vitamin E so it ought to be nourishing. It has a peppermint smell with a hint of orange,which is actually very pleasant.

Boots Gorgeous Feet Reviving Overnight Rescue, £6.49, www.boots.com

If you’ve ever had a paraffin wax treatment, you will know how amazing it is. This cream contains paraffin, and is rich and intense. You leave it on overnight with socks on – it does feel a bit odd, and cools down, but it works. Smells divine as well, most definitely Oscar nominated!

L’Occitane Relaxing Lavender Foot Cream, £12.75, www.loccitane.com

We have to give our award to this intense, rich and sumptuous cream. Massage it into your feet for a sensory experience – or get your leading man to do it! It’s enriched with calming lavender essentials oil which has antiseptic, purifying and anti-inflammatory properties. It does have a mint extract, but it’s natural, and therefore not offensive in the way other mint smells can be. Also contains shea butter. We adored it, and couldn’t stop reapplying, just because it feels so nice. Oscar winner outright!

Liz Earle Foot Repair Moisturiser, £12.25, www.lizearle.com

Fantastic tube with pump application, this of course contains all the right ingredients for a foot cream – shea butter and peppermint oil – but also rosemary oil and avocado oil. It is rich, but you can use it every day. Best used along with their matching foot scrub (from £4.50). The good thing about this cream is it really is non-greasy. However the over-herbal smell of Liz Earle puts this bombshell off
