Soap & Glory Heel Genius – £5.50
Foot cream. It’s a bit of an odd one isn’t it? We all probably use it but it’s barely mentioned, firmly squared in the same category as deodorants and hair removal. A necessity we just don’t really mention. With it being Spring, we’re all getting our tootsies ready to be showcased in sandals, complete with bright toes so I thought I’d do a post about the Soap & Glory Heel Genius that I received in a gift set for Christmas.
Now I must confess this now, I’m not a fan of this product. Everyone else raves about Heel Genius but I’m just a bit ‘meh’ on the subject.
Heel Genius contains allantoin, glycerin, macadamia oil, menthol, bilberry, orange and lemon fruit acid smoothers which Soap and Glory claim to help renovate rough feet in a single overnight session.
It’s a bright blue gel which transforms into a cream when you start massaging it into the foot. It’s not as thick as some I’ve tried and can be a bit watery I find, but if you like lighter creams then this might be for you. I don’t really like the scent at all, in fact I think this is is probably the main reason I’m not keen on the cream at all.
It’s not really a product you can just slap on and 5 minutes later it’s absorbed so you do have to wear socks so nothing sticks to your feet. I usually apply it before bed, pop some socks on and then in the morning voila.
Another thing that I don’t like about Heel Genius is it doesn’t ever feel like it’s really sinking in and working and although my feet are fairly soft in the morning, I don’t feel my heels are as soft as they could be and so I have to apply the cream night after night.
So far of all the Soap and Glory products I’ve tried, this is the only one I’ve not really been a fan of. I wish I did like it as I’m quite a big fan of hand food, but I hate the smell and it just doesn’t give me the results I’d hoped so I think I will stick to my Burts Bees foot creme for now.
