Where should I begin from, I am so lazy when it comes to foot care! I hated to take care of my feet which eventually and obviously led to ugly and cracked feet. At that point, the light bulb in my head instantly turned on. I tried looking after my feet like scrubbing them, using foot masks, foot lotions, Krack cream, but nothing helped except pedicure and thanks to the lady who cleaned my feet and since then I have been maintaining my feet using coco butter and things like that, but nothing really made such a huge difference.
I hated the feeling of oily legs and I still remember walking around and slipping after applying these creams. I totally avoided applying cream on the feet because of this and then one day, I discovered some lovely products from Lush, the Volcanic Foot Mask and Fair Trade Foot Lotion. These products just made me look after my feet much better, i.e., the unique smell, texture and color of these products can make anyone take some extra care of their feet. Unfortunately, I don’t have Volcanic Foot Mask and I need to repurchase it, but today, I will be reviewing Fair Trade Foot Lotion by Lush. So guys, happy reading!
Are your Achilles or a bit tendon? Soothe, cool and soften them – then put your best foot forward! We have been doing versions of this cream for well over 20 years and we think we really have it cracked now. A whole foot-locker of ingredients to treat and soothe tired, sore and unsightly feet. Peppermint and spearmint stimulate the circulation, bring blood to the surface of the skin and give a cool feeling. With arnica to help with bruising and swelling and cocoa butter and almond oil to help soften the skin and prevent cracks. Now, we know this is too much information – but our Mark has the most revolting feet. He invented and perfected this lotion just for him, because he would be banned from the marital bed if he didn’t keep on top of the situation. He describes his feet before Fair Trade Foot Lotion as “vile prehistoric scaly things”. With it, he is just about part of the human race. If it can work for him, it can work for anyone.
Great used alongside Volcano Foot Mask – another product invented to keep on top of Mark’s Achilles heel!
We used fairtrade cocoa butter in this, because hardworking cocoa growers should be able to put their feet up sometimes too.

My Take on Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion:
This foot lotion is quite creamy and rather different from other foot creams which are thick. Here goes the detailed description.
Feel: Peppermint fresh smell makes me use it quite often because I love anything that relaxes, calms and moisturises my tired feet at the same time without being sticky. Another thing is that its absorption power is very good and it sinks into the skin when rubbed and doesn’t leave any sort of oiliness or stickiness.
Texture: It has a creamy, silky, smooth, rich and non-sticky texture. Colour is another added advantage, its of lilac-pink colour and makes it a unique foot lotion.
Staying Power: It stays for 6-8 hours depending on the dryness of the skin. I apply it every night and this works good for me.
Packaging: Comes in a big black pot with typical Lush packaging which can recycled.

Do I Recommend Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion?
Yes, this is another must-try product from Lush because it’s something different compared to the old-fashioned Crack creams. It smell great, leaves skin hydrated, and the heals the feet. Not only does it soothe and heal sore feet, but being a fair trade product, it is another advantage as it helps create opportunities for farmers in developing countries, so it is a foot lotion with a difference.
