Wrapped up in fuzzy socks and thick slippers or boots, my feet are the last thing on my mind between chapped skin problems and frizzy hair during the winter months. Yet the drier they are, the less I’m enthused to deal with them and sticking my feet into a pair of woolies seemed to be the easiest way to make the issue temporarily disappear. But with sandal season fast approaching, it’s time to reaccess the situation.
Brand: Soap & Glory
Product: Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream*
Availability: Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada
Would I (re)purchase: Yes, probably.
As a whole, the markup price for Soap and Glory products in Canada makes this a little less affordable than it would be if sold in the UK and that would be my main reservation about repurchasing this product. Those sensitive to heavy fragrances should approach this cautiously as it is richly scented, as most products from this line tends to be.
THE FINAL VERDICT
A surprisingly refreshing and lightweight cream that will help to smooth over dry patches and revive tired feet quicker than you can get that pair of summer sandals delivered in the mailbox. Heel Genius will make a great pairing with your winter body care routine or used in the summer to keep your feet bare worthy. Because this spreads so easily, you don’t need to use very much of it to get the full benefits so if you’re ready to shed those winter socks, this is definitely a good place to start.
