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.

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.
