Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme - Review



It looks like Honey, but it is not Honey. This Foot Cream is a pure overnight treatment thing. Basically this is not a cream. It is a goopy thick jelly like syrup thing. I cannot imagine myself using this as a casual, regular foot cream just to moisturize. This tube is TREATMENT!

A fantastic, effective and painfully messy product!

Made with Coconut Oil and other natural ingredients, our foot creme revives and rejuvenates your dry, oh-so neglected feet while Rosemary and Peppermint Extracts refresh your weary soles.



Color: Light Golden Honey Color

Consistency: Goopy, Thick, Jelly/Syrupy and Viscous

Texture: Sticky and heavy.

Fragrance: Sweet Minty scent mixed with Coconut scent. I would have loved if it were either coconut smell or Mint smell. The combination of both is just weird.

Application: I apply a decent amount on my whole foot in thin layer. The top and bottom both. It is thick and viscous. It spreads easily, but is not absorbed completely. Lot of product sits on the skin leaving behind a sticky, shiny residue. I cover it with socks and leave it over night.

Feel on skin: Sticky initially. Next morning though there is not shiny or greasy residue, but still something waxy and slightly tacky stuff remains. It is waxy enough to leave stains. The foot feels super soft that has been pampered and moisturized well.

My thoughts: I love this stuff, simply because it worked for me. If you have read my review on L'Occitane Foot Cream, you would probably know how much I love pampering my feet with these overnight treatments. I just love the whole ritual!

The best thing about this sticky stuff is barrier it creates between the skin and external environment (???). It takes its own time to slowly penetrate the thick soles of foot, moisturizing it deeply. I don't have cracked feet, but this stuff managed to soften the natural lines that an adult foot has. I have no idea if I am able to explain, but this stuff works. It just locks in the moisture.

If I have to give a very homemade equivalent to this stuff, I would say mix Honey, Glycerine and Coconut oil. I remember my mom used to do this, but she used to add some lemon juice as well. It always worked for her.

Looking for something more light and easy? Try L'Occitane Foot Cream, but for stubborn and serious foot dryness and cracks, this is something you might want to try.

  1. I obviously need to try this! Winter has taken a toll on my feet; I gave myself a pedicure last weekend and there is still so much work to be done before they are acceptable for sandals haha.
