Da da da daaa da daaa pumice powerrr! I just can’t read the name of this without saying it in the style of Scrappy Doo from Scooby Doo when he says “puppy power!” – if you have no idea what I’m on about *click here*.
Hard skin on feet, what an exciting topic to talk about today. It’s that time of year that we start to forget about our feet, take them out of our sandals and put them away for Autumn/Winter. My feet have definitely been feeling a little sorry for themselves lately.
When I was in Lush (Milton Keynes) the other week a lovely sales assistant recommended trying out their Pumice Power foot soap and also mentioned that it lasts for ages. The scent reminds me of those little classic fizzy sweets you get called “Fizzers” – they often come in those sweet packs with Parma Violets etc. So it definitely smells very yummy! Just make sure you don’t mix it up with your party sweets! Bleurgh!
The pumice soap has the classic pumice stone shape and is burnt orange in colour – which is probably something to do with the orange oil it’s made with. I grabbed my spare washing up bowl (classy!) and boiled the kettle to get some nice warm water to dip my feet in whilst trying it out in front of the tv.
I switched on The Real Housewives of Cheshire to watch some people bitch about each other for entertainment, which is always fun. Then I dipped my feet into the slightly too hot water and let them soak for a minute before getting started. The pumice is lovely to use as it’s scrubby but also soapy, so it creates this lovely paste-like texture on your feet. The scrubby bits work away on the dry skin, whilst the oils in the paste moisturise the skin as it goes. It’s rather lovely!
Okay, so a pumice soap isn’t the most glamorous of products to use, but doing little things like this gives you a real confidence boost and makes you feel great. Keep it going and you’ll be the one with the fab feet in your heels at all the festive parties later this year!
