Liz Earle Summer Essentials - Footcare

As you will know from my previous posts I am a big fan of natural skincare. At the moment I am really enjoying using Liz Earle products especially the hot polish cleanser, as well as the Liz Earle Superbalm (review coming soon) and the Eye Bright.

After hibernating in UGG boots and socks during the winter months, we tend to forget about our feet and keep them covered up. As summer is fast approaching and we shall be baring our feet once again, we need them looking in tip-top condition. You may be surprised to hear that i’m guilty of neglecting my feet and I’ve only just recently had my first pedicure!
 
Liz Earle’s divine foot trio promises to quickly transforms dry and neglected soles into fabulous flip-flop ready feet. From my experience of ordering from Liz Earle their customer service is brilliant and everything is wrapped up so beautifully in tissue paper. I was sent their new Foot trio which came with a Summer Tote Beach Bag, would just like to say although I was sent these products to review they are my own honest opinions. 
Step One: Smooth
One of Vogue magazine’s footcare favourites, this foot scrub gently yet intensively exfoliates hard, rough skin on your feet to leave them ultra-smooth and buffed to perfection. With avocado oil to help soften skin and wheatgerm oil rich in vitamin E plus natural pumice, use it every day to keep dead skin cells at bay.

Step Two: Soften
Get Ready to bare softer, smoother soles with our deliciously scented Foot Repair moisturiser. Made with a luxurious blend of West African shea butter, avocado and wheatgerm oils, it sinks in fast to quickly quench the driest of skins. Bursting with peppermint, rosemary and seven other essential oils, this heavenly cream will leave you feeling like you’re walking on air.
Step Three: Refresh
The new special edition Foot Spritzer is filled with nine invigorating essential oils including rosemary, spearmint and peppermint to refresh and revitalize hot, weary legs and feet. This fast drying spray instantly cools while fighting odour-causing bacteria to help keep feet smelling sweet. Exclusive for summer, use it any time you need a refreshing boost.
My Thoughts:

Last night I gave myself a quick pedicure using these 3 Liz Earle foot products. First of all the scrub, it had a nice fresh minty scent, not too harsh but felt like it was exfoliating my terrible dry soles and also removing some patchy remains of fake tan from the week before. When I rinsed the scrub off in the bath, it did completely remove all my old patchy tan and my feet did feel more soft and smooth. There are still some dry patches around my heels, however, it is recommended to use this product every day so I shall continue to use and see if it makes an improvement.
The moisturiser is a very rich, thick cream but did sink into the skin quickly; the moisturiser has a very overpowering clinical smell which I am not a big fan to be honest. It did leave my feet feeling soft but there are still dry patches on my soles around my heel area and the balls of my feet. I would expect that by continuing to use both the scrub and the moisturiser daily this should improve my skin condition. The foot spray is cooling and refreshing but has the same strong clinical hospital smell as the moisturiser which I’m not a fan of maybe they remind me of hosptials? If these products smelt as good as the Superbalm they would be perfect for me!

These products are priced at: Foot scrub (£10.25); Foot Repair Moisturiser (£12.25); Foot Spritz (£7.00) and are available from http://www.lizearle.com/
