Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Foot Cream
Perfect for: Preventing dry skin, soothing, softening and lightly hydrating
- Quick to absorb
- Does not leave your feet slippery
- It leaves skin feeling incredibly soft
- Not hydrating enough for very dry skin
- Contains lanolin which some people react to
Dr. Hauschka Foot Cream is a lightweight cream that is easy to spread and quick to absorb. It has a lovely herbal scent which is not very strong but it’s really enjoyable to use. My feet feel incredibly soft after using this cream and I cannot remember any other foot cream or balm that I used previously which produces the same results.
Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Foot Cream contains nourishing and hydrating ingredients such as glycerin, peanut oil and lanolin to improve the condition of dry skin but I would say it’s not very effective for very dry and rough heels with some cracks starting to develop. However, this is still a lovely foot cream, suitable for slightly dry feet and it would be great for summer months as it’s quick to absorb and it’s non-oily.
Weleda Skin Food
Perfect for: Very dry and rough skin on the feet
- Extremely nourishing
- Suitable for very dry and rough skin
- Helps skin to heal
- Contains organic ingredients
- Takes a bit of time to absorb
- Contains lanolin which some people react to
Weleda Skin Food is a thick and slightly oily cream that can be used all over your body. It works incredibly well on dry and rough skin and that includes rough skin on the feet. It eliminates dryness and helps skin heal, leaving skin looking healthier and feeling softer.
It’s a great multi-purpose product but it doesn’t absorb quickly and it’s best used at night. It is so effective though that many people won’t mind using it as an overnight treatment. However, if you only need slight hydration and are in a rush to leave the house, then Dr. Hauschka Hyrating Foot Cream is a much better choice.
Herbfarmacy Comfrey and Mint Foot Cream
Perfect for: Nourishing and soothing dry feet
- Not too thick, easy to spread
- Absorbs quickly
- Soothing and softening
- Healing and anti-bacterial
- Made with 77% organic ingredients
- Cannot think of any!
When I used Herbfarmacy Comfrey and Mint Foot Cream for the first time I was really impressed. This is not a very thick cream but feels very nourishing. It’s really easy to spread and it’s very quick to absorb.
I have some dry lines on my feet that I’ve been trying to get rid of for ages and this is one of the very few moisturisers that actually sinks into those lines on the application and immediately makes them look better.
What I especially like about this foot cream is that it doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy. Another plus: this cream is made with 77% organic ingredients, although it is not officially certified organic. It also nicely softens the skin.
All in all, this is a great foot cream that can also soothe tired feet and it’s perfect for summer. I highly recommend it.
Botanicals Foot Rescue Balm
Perfect for: Nourishing and softening dry and hard skin, for healing cracks
- Certified organic
- Suitable for very dry skin and cracks
- Very hydrating
- Makes feet slippery so it’s best used overnight
- It melts easily in hot weather
Foot Rescue Balm from Botanicals has won a Free From Skincare Award and for a good reason. Although it contains very simple ingredients and nothing too exciting, it does work. I found it very hydrating and great at softening hard skin. It works very well on my dry feet and I love its slightly minty scent which is not too overpowering. It’s a pleasure to use.
The consistency is quite thick and waxy but on contact with skin, it melts immediately. It is a bit oily and will need some time to absorb so I prefer to use it in the evening. It’s a lovely foot balm that is also anti-bacterial since it contains tea tree oil. With regular use, it will help to heal any cracks and keep your skin soft.
