Pour Les Pieds

Summer calls for TLC from head to toe... after talking about body care it's also important to discuss what we need to use pour les pieds! Recognizing that sandal season has begun, Katherine and I had pedicures but the care shouldn't stop there.

Unlike our hands, we aren't constantly faced with the state of our feet so it's easy to neglect them. Lately I've been using the Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream to keep my feet soft and smooth.

I would describe this as a balm, not a cream. It's made from coconut oil, lanolin, and vegetable glycerin. It's very smooth and slightly runny, although I can imagine that's partly due to the warmer weather. After jumping into bed I apply a small amount so it will completely absorb. Although it isn't sticky or overly greasy, you wouldn't want to walk around barefoot with it on.

My favourite part is that it smells like coconut! There's also a hint of peppermint, the typical scent in foot creams.

We're all about natural beauty products and many Burt's Bees products are 100% natural. The foot cream is 99.4%, with the difference due to the need for synthetic preservatives. Side note: while lanolin is animal-derived (it's a waxy product found on sheep's wool), Burt's Bees is a cruelty-free company that does not test on animals. Something for vegans to be aware of.

What do you use to keep your feet looking great?
