Marks and Spencer Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Foot Balm Review
After a long festive time things are back to normal again. I wish it would have been possible to stretch this slot a little more. I know this wish is not realistic, anyways I hope you have enjoyed and made the most of this festive break. Today, I am going to write about my experience with Marks and Spencer Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Foot Balm. If you have read my last ‘First Glimpse’ post then you must be aware that I have bought a couple of M&S products. I have already said that the cute packaging of M&S products enticed me to bring them home. So far I have mixed experience with the products I bought – some exceeded my expectations, some fared only well and some did not even come close to my expectations. Let us see in what category this royal jelly and pure honey foot balm falls into.
What the product says:
This intense hydrating foot balm has been specially formulated with the natural softening properties of royal jelly, lanolin and cocoa butter to leave your feet feeling freshly fragrant and beautifully smooth.
My Take on ‘Marks and Spencer Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Foot Balm’
As winters arrive, most women suffer from problems of cracked heels and dead skin. Sometimes the pain of cracks gets worse and crosses the threshold of tolerance. As people often say ‘prevention is better than cure’ so keeping that advice in mind I have started applying foot balm regularly to keep those unwanted foot problems at bay.
Royal jelly and pure honey foot balm is housed in an easily squeezable flip open tube. The product has a semi thick consistency that along with the locked cap ensures that there is no spilling off the product while travelling. It is pearly white in color and has an herbal fragrance that seems to be a mix of honey and petroleum jelly. The texture of the product is creamy with some synthetic feel. The consistency is thicker than regular foot creams and petroleum jellies.
I apply it once a day, before going to bed. Just take some product that comes out in one squeeze, dot it on my foot and massage focusing on heels and in between toes. Due to thick consistency it does not get absorbed into the skin easily, I have to spend good 5 – 10 minutes in massage to make it disappear. The good thing is that I do not mind doing so; it is ‘feet-time’ for me. It does feel somewhat sticky and but that feeling suppresses after some time. It is not that it gets transferred to the sheets or clothes as by the time I wake up in morning I could still feel the creaminess on my feet.
Regarding the efficacy, I have been using this foot balm for over 4 weeks now, and I see that my heels have softened a lot. There are no cracks and hard (dead) skin anymore. Plus, even if I do not apply lotion on my feet in the morning they look moisturized all day long. I hope this can be a great reprieve from those dry patches in winter. The fragrance does not stay on for long but I do not mind that as long as it is giving good results in healing the cracks and softening my foot skin.
What I like about ‘Marks and Spencer Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Foot Balm’
– Pleasant fragrance.
– After effects stays on for long.
– Makes feet soft and heals cracks.
– Travel friendly packaging.
– Little goes a long way.
– Semi-thick consistency makes it sure that no product gets wasted.
What I do not like about ‘Marks and Spencer Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Foot Balm’
– It does not penetrate quickly into the skin. I need to massage for good 5-10 minutes to push it inside.
