Unglamourous essentials: Getting back the 'spring' in your step!

With Spring and Summer approaching, the open toe sandals are making a reappearance, meaning unfortunately, we can't hide our feet under fluffy socks and welly boots for much longer. Eesk!
We can all surrender to putting our pedicures on the backburner for the winter, and so, in search of bringing a new lease of life to my concealed feet, I decided to purchase some new stuff! (There's always an excuse, I swear). Here are my favourites of the bunch...

LUSH Sugar Scrub


I was bought this sugar scrub stone as a gift, it's designed to be an all over body scrub, but I found it really abrasive on my sensitive skin, so decided to use it on my feet instead. This smells really good and is great as a more luxurious pumice stone. Plus, it's a great price too (£2.95?) and you can get multiple uses from it. My only negative is it takes a while to dry out when used with water, and can get really sticky, so make sure you hold onto the packaging to pop it back into!


Soap and Glory: Heel Genius
This is a great, lightweight but moisturising foot cream which smells really fresh and minty. I'm not too sure of the price as again, I was bought this as a gift but the Soap and Glory range generally isn't too pricey and can be picked up in UK drugstores. I also love the packaging of S&G stuff, but i'm sure i've already mentioned that.


LUSH: T for Toes
I picked this up in LUSH just the other day, as I'd mistakenly put on a pair of summery dolly shoes which smelt a bit foisty. The lovely assistant at LUSH told me it works wonders if you dust your feet with it before wearing open shoes, or alternatively, sprinkle it into your shoes. I haven't tried this out properly but of course I've had a smell and it's a very citrus, almost overpowering scent. This doesn't put me off, however, because a little probably goes a long way. Plus, I could think of worse things than having citrus smelling feet.

Barry M: Speedy quick dry varnishes

Above all, I generally think feet look 100% better with a nice nail varnish. I picked these up in Superdrug as I was looking for spring colours and these caught my eye. I'm literally the most impatient person in the world when it comes to painting my nails, so of course it was a total bonus they happened to be fast drying ones! I picked up the colours Full Throttle and Eat My Dust as they were the ones that most caught my attention, but they were loads of other pretty nude and pastel colours too. Again, Barry M is generally affordable brand, but I can't actually remember how much these were (Oops).

What are your favourite products to keep your feet sweet? 
Love,
Jessica
