One of the effects of living in a place where the climate is cold 70% of the year is having dry and rough skin on my ankles and feet. So I’ve been trying a lot of different pumice stones, foot files, foot creams and scrubs. Some of them are miracle workers and others are duds and I want to review them all for you ladies, one by one.
The first one up on my list is The Peppermint Soothing Pumice Foot Scrub from The Body Shop.
I paid €10 for a 98g jar of this scrub. It is light grey in colour and has a gel like consistency with small, evenly sized exfoliating particles.
The Body Shop Peppermint Pumice Foot Scrub Ingredients:-
Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Pumice (Exfoliant), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Surfactant), Acrylates Copolymer (Stabiliser), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Surfactant), Glycerin (Humectant), Mentha Piperita Oil (Fragrance/Essential Oil), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Myristamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate (Skin-Conditioning Agent), p-Anisic Acid (pH Modifier), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Sodium Chloride (Viscosity Modifier), Menthol (Fragrance/Cooling Agent), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient).
I used this foot scrub 2-3 times a week for over a month, scrubbing it on damp feet and then massaging it off under warm water. According to their Body Shop website, this scrub has “intensely exfoliating volcanic rock granules” that help to take away rough patches of hardened skin from your feet. But did it actually live up to these claims? In a nutshell, no. But here’s a detailed list of the pros and cons of this foot scrub:
What I like about TBS Peppermint Foot Scrub:-
- Attractive packaging – I love the blue jar and it is one of the main reasons that I was attracted to this scrub in the first place.
- Lovely fragrance that lingers – I love the fresh, minty fragrance of this scrub.
- Cooling effect on feet – This scrub feels cool and tingly on my feet which is very refreshing, especially in summer.
- Exfoliating granules are not too harsh/scratchy – I’ve used a lot of foot scrubs that hurt my feet and this is not one of them.
What I don’t like about TBS Peppermint Foot Scrub:-
- Costly – I think €10 is a bit too much for this scrub.
- Ineffective – It did not remove all the dry/hardened skin on my feet. In fact every time I used it, I barely found any difference in the condition of my feet.
So it’s clear that this foot scrub, while refreshing and fragrant, is basically an expensive dud. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who suffers from dry, rough feet as I’m sure there are better foot scrubs out there.
