Product Review: Liz Earle Foot Repair Moisturizer

Name: Foot Repair Moisturizer
Brand: Liz Earle
Size: 100ml
Price: £12.50

From Liz Earle’s website:
Made with softening avocado and wheatgerm oils plus shea butter, Foot Repair Moisturiser sinks in fast to deeply moisturise and smooth dry skin on heels and soles

What I liked:
– leaves skin soft and smooth
– not greasy, sinks in quickly
– longlasting
– the scent
– the packaging
– available in a mini size too

What I didn’t like:
– if your feet are very dry, you’ll see the results after several days of use
– the price

Now that’s summer and my feet are always on show, I need to make sure they are always in good condition, which is no easy feat for me. The skin on my feet is dry and I like to go around barefoot when I can, which doesn’t really help. Even though I take good care of them in summer, I still get dry patches every now and then. So, when the lovely people at Liz Earle asked me if I wanted to try their Foot Repair Moisturizer, I instantly said yes. Their products have always worked well for me so far and I was curious to see if this moisturizer would help my feet. So, how did it perform?

The cream has a thick consistency but it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, so it’s suitable for summer too. It spreads easily on the skin, sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind. But how well does it work? I had a few dry patches on my feet, mainly on my heels and, after the first application, the effects of the cream were barely noticeable. Yes, they felt softer, but only slightly so. Still, I persisted and I’m glad I did. By the fourth day, all my dry patches were gone. My feet are soft and smooth and the moisturizing effects of the cream last for the entire day.

The Foot Repair Moisturizer works even better when paired with the Liz Earle Foot Scrub. They both make my feet noticeably softer, keeping them in good condition, and have the same herbal, peppermint-based scent, which is uplifting and divine! It is also quite strong but it doesn’t bother me because the scent smells really good and I don’t really smell my feet during the day anyway.

At £12.50, this foot moisturizer is not exactly cheap, but it does it job well and, because you only need a small amount, it will last you for a long time. There is also a smaller version available (15ml) that retails at only £4.60 for those who want to try the Foot Repair Moisturizer and want to see how well it works before committing to buy the full size.

Summary
Liz Earle Foot Repair Moisturizer has a thick consistency that doesn’t feel heavy on my feet and sinks in quickly without leaving a greasy residue behind. It leaves feet soft, smooth and moisturized for the entire day but if yours are particularly dry, it will take a few days for the effects to be visible. The scent is divine but the price isn’t cheap. However, a cheaper mini size is available too.

      Jamilla, I’m sorry to hear that! This cream is quite moisturizing and, even though it takes a while to treat very dry skin, it gives great results after a few days’ use.

      Dee, it is. It’ll take a while to see the effects, but when you do… it really makes feet so soft and smooth!

      Xin, I find that using this moisturizer together with then scrub works so well at treating dry feet. And they have such a lovely, uplifting scent so they are a real pleasure to use.

    I walk a lot and live in a dry and cold climate so my feet are dry and with lots of callous skin. Ive tried maany moisturizers, aha creams (just with 5%), salicylic acid lotions (10%) and pumice stones. The only thing that has worked for me is a urea pomade (20%, its moisturizing and exfoliates) after 5 days of use my feet has changed completely, now are soft and moisturized , I only use the pomade twice a week and a pumice stone occasionally. You have to be careful with urea though, 20% can be too much and may cause irritation and excessive peeling in normal (non callous) skin.

      Alejandra, thanks for sharing your experience. I’m glad urea has helped you. It is very effective in cases such as yours but you’re right, you need to be careful or it could make things worse.
