Have you ever tried a foot mask before?
I hadn’t until I tried this. It’s a gift I got from #LeedsMayMeet.
It was a complicated process. And you all know how I don’t like complicated!
Maybe I was being a complete muppet, but this was hard work. I must have been doing it wrong.
But it’s a foot mask. HOW CAN I BE DOING IT WRONG? Like I said : muppet.
First, you smoother your feet in the product, then cover it in plastic for 10 minutes. Doesn’t sound that hard, right?
I wanted to make sure I could wash my hands when I used this, so sat on my toilet (with the lid down!) and applied the product to both feet. Next, I covered them with plastic bags, washed my hands and thought I was good to go.
So I went. As I started walking, I realised that this probably wasn’t the best idea as it meant the product on the bottom of my feet squidged up the side of the bag.
This basically meant it didn’t have time to work on the problem areas!
I basically sat in my room for 10 minutes with bags tied to my feet wondering where my day/week/life had gone wrong.
The product itself does smell lovely though.
It reminds me of those herbal sweets my Granddad used to give me on Saturdays when we went to visit him. I think they’re called voice tablets – a sweet but musky taste.
Well, that’s what this smells like.
The consistency is a thick clay that stays put – until you walk on the product. Weh.
It left my feet feeling a bit softer, but was no miracle cream for me. It’s one of those ‘nice to do’s’ when you’ve got a spare hour or so to pamper yourself.
- Smells nice.
- Can’t really see a difference in my feet.
- Awkward to use.
- Has a short shelf life.
Does anyone else know how I could use this without being so awkward?
