REVIEW: 3-Step Foot Spa at Home with Carnation Footcare x BlackBox

Carnation Footcare is a UK brand that has been taking care of people's feet for over 85 years, in more than 40 different countries. The brand provides remedies to most common foot problems with their range of licensed medicated products and devices, and products for general comfort. BlackBox has teamed up with Carnation Footcare to come up with an exclusive 3-Step Foot Spa Pack. This pack contains:

  • Carnation Exfoliating Foot Scrub 100ml for $13.90
    This scrub contains walnut shell and mineral oil to remove dead and rough skin, while keeping it soft and smooth. After washing your feet, pat it dry lightly so that your skin is a tad damp. Apply the scrub in gentle circular motions and rinse off.
  • Carnation Intensive Moisturizing Foot Cream 100ml for $11.90
    Infused with peppermint oil, this cream nourishes and relives dry and rough feet without any greasy feeling. Apply to clean feet in gentle circular motions after shower.
  • Carnation Cracked Heel Cream 50ml for $12.90
    Formulated with 10% urea, this cream rehydrates your feet with a refreshing peppermint scent. The brand promises visible results within 3 days. Apply to clean heels in gentle circular motions.

For me, I have always had rough feet from days of dancing barefooted and soccer, and not really caring for my feet because, well, they are usually not visible since I wear covered shoes. But Christmas is approaching and with a few dinners scheduled, I do want to dress my feet up in pretty strappy heels. So... This little spa kit is really timely. Heh.

I have never actually thought of scrubbing my feet before (I scrub everywhere but not my feet. I have no idea why.) so the Carnation Exfoliating Foot Scrub was something different for me. The walnut shell pieces are coarse because the skin on our feet, especially the heels, is tougher. It immediately smoothens rough skin and leaves my feet feeling really soft. Right before bed, I apply a thin layer of the Carnation Intensive Moisturizing Foot Cream. Despite the name, this cream is lightweight and sinks in easily and quickly. And because it has peppermint oil, there's a cooling after-effect which is a really nice and relaxing way to end the day. Every now and then, I would apply the Carnation Cracked Heel Cream. This cream is thicker and so, takes a little longer to sink in. I don't use this everyday but it's a more intensive treatment for the heels. My heels feel more moisturised and smoother than when I used just the foot cream alone.

BlackBox's 3-Step Foot Spa Exclusive Box is available at $29.90. Key in the code BBXCHARLENELEE10 for an additional 10% off. ◡̈
