Liz Earle Foot Scrub

I normally try to take pretty good care of my feet. I use a foot file often, exfoliate a few times a week and make sure I moisturise them everyday to keep them looking presentable. I'm not particularly fond of my feet (or feet in general) but keeping them in nice condition makes me feel a lot better about them. A few weeks ago I was sent a new foot product to try (Liz Earle Foot scrub) which I've been using in place of a similar product from Sanctuary so here are my thoughts on it.

Liz Earle Foot Scrub is described as a hard-working scrub which gently exfoliates hard, rough skin on heels and soles. It contains an array of naturally active ingredients including, natural pumice to remove dead skin cells, softening avocado and wheatgerm oils rich in vitamin E. It also contains peppermint and rosemary essential oils which give it an invigorating scent.

How to use

Massage daily onto damp skin, concentrating on dry areas such as heels, toes and balls of your feet. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry. Follow with Liz Earle Foot Repair Moisturiser.

(For best results, use a large foot file beforehand to buff any stubborn areas).

I've been using the foot scrub 3-4 times a week on nights when I don't use a foot file and I'm really pleased with the results. The product is really thick in consistency and is jam packed with lovely, grainy scrubby particles which do a fantastic job at exfoliating. The scrub feels wonderful when it's applied and massaged in and the scent is lovely. Like the Brightening Treatment mask I've been using from the range, the product smells quite herbal. I can mainly smell the rosemary and peppermint essential oils which it contains, but I'd say it also smells quite strongly of eucalyptus. The aroma is quite intense but lovely and fresh, clean and pleasant.

The scrubby particles which I mentioned sit in a a soft cream type base which also feels really nice when it's rubbed in and stops the pumice from feeling too harsh on more sensitive/delicate areas. The oils in the base seem to stay on my feet even after I've washed the product off and leaves them feeling soft and smooth. The scent also lingers for a long while after I've used it too.

I've been using the scrub for the last few weeks now and I've definitely noticed an improvement in the condition of my feet. The scrub I was using beforehand was nice and was doing a good job at exfoliating but didn't leave my skin feeling as soft as the Liz Earle product does. It also doesn't smell as nice or feel as refreshing. With regular use of a good foot file (sanctuary's is nice), the Liz Earle foot scrub and a hydrating foot lotion or cream I'm managing to keep my feet in pretty good shape at the moment,  which is great considering sandal season is almost upon us!


If you're a foot scrub fan, Liz Earle's is definitely worth checking out. It exfoliates brilliantly, smells gorgeous and leaves feet feeling soft and smelling beautifully sweet!

(Liz Earle foot scrub is available from the Liz Earle site and costs £10.45 for a 100ml tube)

What products do you use to keep your feet in shape?


  1. I never knew Liz Earle had a foot scrub, it sounds quite promising - I might try it out, what with summer coming up and having to wear sandals! x

  2. This sounds amazing! Never tried a foot scrub. :)

  3. This sounds amazing! I've actually tried shea socks from Bath and Body Works that have lavender smell to them and they actually work! I was in complete shock that they worked but the only downside to them was the fact that they shedded like crazy! I need a good foot scrub now that sandal season is in full-effect.

  4. That looks so nourishing as well as exfoliating :D I neeeeeed it now :D

  5. Tess, Liz Earle have quite a nice range of foot products. There's also a foot cream and spray available which also sound great x

    Vintage, It is really good stuff! x

    Hopelessly Devoted, The shea socks sound lovely, bit of a shame they didn't last long though. I don't think we have Bath and Body Works here in the UK but I may look for something similar x

    Laura, It does leave feet feeling lovely and soft and smooth! x

  6. I might have to get some of this for my mum! She's always moaning about her feet.

  7. Ooh I need a foot scrub. Haven't got one at the moment and even though I do use foot creams etc, I find my feet could do with a bit more TLC.

    Thanks for giving me this idea (trust me, I wouldn't have thought about it myself so thank you for doing this review!) - I'm off to browse scrubs (yup, the foot ones) :-P



Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate and read each and every one of them!
