Foot creams are essential after my daily shower or before bedtime, because it keeps my feet soft and smooth. I have used many a foot cream in my lifetime (I'm no spring chicken!) but I have never encountered one so deliciously scented that I want to lick my own foot after applying it. Today's product review is one of my all time favourite products in the KORA Organics skincare range.
The Rejuvenating Foot Balm (90ml - $34.95 AUD) is encased in the typical KORA Organics "almost Tiffany blue" simple, matte packaging. The foot balm smells absolutely amazing - exactly like candy canes at christmas time! Soft and sweet, with a touch of peppermint... yum! That alone is a win for me. However, there are many other great features of this foot cream. The first one being that it's over 99% natural and that over 62% of the total ingredients are sourced from organic farming. It has been certified organic according to the ECOCERT standard.
|The "blurb" and instructions on how to use the foot balm|
This foot balm says that it "soothes and cools" aching or tired feet. In all honesty, I don't know if it lives up to the claim or not as I use this every day and my feet are never "achy" or "tired". However, I do notice that after wearing heels for a few hours I'll come home and use this after a shower, and it does feel quite cooling. I imagine it would be quite soothing for feet that were actually aching!

The "balm" itself isn't really a balm. It's nothing like those petroleum based foot creams where it's thick, clear, oily and greasy to the touch. I use a small blob (about the size of my fingernail) and it's more than enough to coat my entire foot and ankles. It's very easy to rub in, quite quick to be absorbed, and light. It's not greasy at all. I always pop cotton socks on after applying this, though. So maybe it is greasy and I just don't know it?! Ha, doubt it though, because on the occasions that I've taken my socks off less than an hour after application, my feet feel soft and smooth and not sticky at all.
A unique, cute little thing to note about KORA Organics products is that each product in the line is stamped with a word that is aimed to inspire you to live a better life. The foot balm has the word "trust" on it.
This foot cream (or balm) is the one I have enjoyed using the most, out of all the other foot creams I've used. It's moisturising but light, smells AMAZING and is 99% natural. The Rejuvenating Foot Balm retails for $34.95 AUD for 90ml. The entire KORA Organics range can be found in David Jones stores, some Terry White Chemists and from their online store.
Keep your eyes peeled, because I'm going to be posting a tutorial on how to keep your feet soft and baby smooth all year round, very very soon. If your feet are dry and cracked, this is a post you don't want to miss!
