Hello lovelies. How gorgeous has the weather been recently? I don't know about you but I have loved it! With all the warm sunshine this week, I'm sure many of you who are like me have ditched the boots and opted for sandals and flip flops. It may still be March, but most days this week have felt like a summer’s day and I for one will jump at any opportunity to wear summer footwear.
So our feet have been hibernating away over the winter months, and I have to admit that I've not really pampered my tootsies as much as I should have done. Therefore I made the decision this week to start getting my feet summer ready!
One product I swear by has to be the Badger Foot Balm made by the Badger Company. It's truly amazing and works wonders on making your feet feel super soft to the touch. Say goodbye to cracked heels and get ready to paint your toes red as the Badger Foot Balm works wonders at taking that dry feeling away from your feet, especially around the heel and toe area.
The Balm comes in this gorgeous tin with a picture of a badger on the front and inside you get 21g of product. I've always noticed that most foot repair products come in a cream based formula, but as you guessed by the name ‘Badger Foot Balm’, it's a balm! I will be honest, when I first got this product a year ago, I wasn't sure that I would like the balm, but I pretty much used this everyday in the summer last year and my feet loved it! With this product and any Badger Balm a little really does go along way.
The Badger Foot Balm is an oil based formula and its best applied after you've exfoliated your feet after the bath or shower. Once your feet are clean you just rub the balm onto your feet, then pop clean cotton socks on and let the balm do its work. One thing I love about Badger Balms is that the company only use natural organic ingredients and do not test on animals, so this is brilliant for all you animal lovers and natural beauties. The balm is an Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil based formula and contains some wonderful ingredients such as Eucalyptus, which is great for skin care and muscle pain and Jojoba which have great antibacterial properties; Always a plus for feet which are prone to getting dirty and do I need to say, smelly!
One thing I've noticed with Badger Balms is that they do have a unique smell which is ever so slightly medicinal; however I've always found this strangely pleasant. The Badger Foot Balm is no exception to this and when I apply this I really can smell hints of rosemary and peppermint, which have also been used in the ingredients. The oils in the foot balm really work into the skin and sooth them. You can really feel these effects, especially if you’ve been on your feet all day.
The only downside with this balm I would have to say is that once you have it applied to your feet, you are still left with all the oils on your hands. It does wash off easily but it can be a little annoying, however if it makes your feet super soft, then it will do wonders for dry hands as well. I for one love this little tin and I know that it will be getting lots of use again this year. Normally the Badger Balm tins retail at £5.00 from Boots, but I have'nt seen them on the website in ages, but another place to look is Amazon.
For those of you who haven’t heard about the Badger Company I defiantly recommend that you check out some of their fabulous products. I've tried and tested a few of their products over the years after they were introduced to me by a friend and they really do what they say on the tin. I've only had the pleasure of testing out the Badger Balms that come in a cute tin, my favourite one being their famous 'Hard Working Hands'. I really wished I had it to review, but a few months ago I ran out of my third tin, so when I make a re-purchase I will be sure to share with all you beauties.
