Review: Peach Deep Moisturising Foot Pack

From the depths of Winter, encased in their thick socks and cosy boots, a muffled cry for help can be heard from my poor, neglected, abused feet. Whilst in summer they're looked after and I even paint my toenails, in Winter it doesn't seem worth the effort and sadly, they do tend to get overlooked. To try and rectify this situation, I picked up this Peach Deep Moisturising Foot Pack as a complete impulse-purchase in Poundland a while ago, and have recently got around to using it - don't worry, there's no photos of my feet!
Peach Foot Pack
Packaged in a peach-coloured foil pouch, much like a face mask, the foot pack consists of two "boots" which you put onto your feet to work their magic. The packaging claims, "Peach intensive treatment boots are enriched with Peach, Gingko, Honeysuckle and Vitamin E to penetrate deep into the skin to reduce callus build-up and help repair and soften cracked, split heels. How to use: 1. Thoroughly wash and dry feet. 2. Take out and unfold the boots and wear the boots on your feet. 3. Remove the boots after 15-20 minutes. No need to wash feet after using the boots!"
Peach Deep Moisturising Foot Pack Review
So, after washing and drying my feet, I tore open the pouch to remove the boots. At this point, I was relieved to discover that the boots weren't like a sheet face mask as I'd imagined (I'd been worrying I'd have to spend twenty minutes stood on a towel!), but instead are made of plastic with a fabric lining, which is soaked in the treatment liquid. There is a gorgeous peachy scent as soon as you open the pouch, which lasts for the whole treatment time and can still be smelt for hours after use. The boots felt cold to put on, but soon warmed up to body temperature; I actually put my slippers on over the top to keep my feet warm as my house is freezing! I have big feet (UK size eight!) and the boots were just big enough for me, so in the unlikely event your feet are any bigger than that, you'd struggle with these.
Upon removing the boots around half an hour later, there was a lot of excess liquid left on my feet - the instructions say it's not necessary to wash your feet, so I didn't, but it did make putting tights on a strange experience! That aside, my feet felt smooth and moisturised, with the hard skin on my heels being noticeably softer. This foot pack did make a definite difference to my feet, which I have to say I was impressed by!

I wouldn't expect much more from such a cheap product, but the ingredients list is nothing to write home about; although there are a fair few nice ingredients including several fruit extracts, Vitamin E and Glycerin, there are also dodgy contenders in the form of Paraffin, Dimethicone and various parabens. I wasn't too concerned about this as my feet have never been prone to eczema, whereas I wouldn't dream of putting these on my hands for fear of them cracking and flaking. If you are sensitive to these ingredients, it's definitely something to be aware of.
Peach Foot Pack Review
Overall, this was lovely to use and did seem to soften my feet up nicely, which makes it a product I'd consider repurchasing in the future, although I wouldn't recommend it to those who are prone to sensitive skin on the feet. Peach Deep Moisturising Foot Packs can be purchased in Poundland at £1 for a single-use pouch containing two boots, although I can't find them on the Poundland website. Have you tried these foot packs, or a similar product? Do you try to look after your feet during Winter, or do you just have a massive rescue mission come Spring?

  2. A much less expensive version of those Footner socks I think. I love the selfie of the slippers by the way! I'll keep an eye out for these Jess.

  3. These look really interesting, I don't really take care of my feet as well as I should so I might pick one of these up. At least they're not super expensive so if I wasn't a fan I wouldn't have spent too much money on it!
