Our feet are one of the least neglected body parts in our body. We often give so much importance to our face that we forget that our feet needs care too and it is only when they start to crack, we do everything to get them soft again. I recently picked up a foot mask from Balea and today’s review is all about Balea Intensive Care Foot Mask. Read on to know more.
Price and Quantity:
$1.25 for 15ml
Protects and cares intensively. Regenerating macadamia nut oil intensively pills your feet. The precious oil from the Amazonian Babassunuss gives a silky and soft skin feeling. The extract of the seeds of the amaranth provides soothing moisture and protects the skin from drying out. Glycerin supports skin elasticity with its hydrating properties.
How to Use:
Apply the foot mask to your feet in a circular motion and let it work for 10-15 minutes. The remains can then be massaged or removed with a soft tissue. The foot mask is also great for overnight use. To do this, generously apply the mask before going to bed and then pull cotton socks over your feet.

My Experience with Balea Intensive Care Foot Mask:
The mask comes in a 15 ml sachet. The packet is sleek and this makes it travel-friendly. There is enough contents in the pack to be used twice. However, you must use it soon as there is no seal and it can attract dust. There is information regarding the product on the back of the sachet.
The mask is creamy and white in color. It is similar to massage cream. It smells fresh and nutty due to the presence of Macadamia oil and has light hints of vanilla. The mask is more like a thick butter cream and is very rich. The application is pretty simple; you need to massage the cream onto your feet and then let it sit for 10-15 minutes and can be removed or massaged onto. I however prefer using the cream at night as it allows the feet to completely absorb all the goodness from the cream.
The mask can be easily spread, but it takes a lot of massage to get the product absorbed into the skin. It creates white streaks if not massaged correctly. So, the absorption capacity of this cream is pretty low. This is one of main reasons why I prefer the product to be used at night because, you can apply the socks and forget about the mess. The mask takes around 10 minutes to be completely absorbed by the feet and once absorbed, it leaves a moisturized and nourished feeling on the feet.
Since I leave it overnight, every morning I am wake up with amazing soft feet. The feet are completely nourished and the dryness is eliminated. The moisturization stays long, but unfortunately, if you use your body wash while bathing, it kind of removes the nourishing properties from the feet. However, the smoothness is still maintained. The product also cares for the nails, hydrating it and also softens cuticles. If you use the mask once, you can go out with well-groomed feet for at least 2 days which is great. Even though it is a great mask and it is inexpensive, it does contains sulfates and I feel that it is nothing but an intensive foot cream. It is great when you are travelling because, it is a pouch but other than that, I do not find anything extraordinary from this product. So summing up
Pros of Balea Intensive Care Foot Mask:
- Nourishes the skin intensively.
- Keeps feet soft and smooth for around 2 days.
- Softens the cuticles and cares for nails.
- Eliminates dryness
Cons of Balea Intensive Care Foot Mask:
- Contains sulfates.
- Just another intensive foot cream.
- Doesn’t absorb quickly.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
