Okay, we know, talking about foot products isn't exactly the sexiest topic. As someone who will never post a pedicure on Instagram (please, no), the amount of times I will write the word "feet" in this article may just send me over the edge. But nonetheless, our feet deserve to be taken care of. That's where these smoothing, hydrating products come in: They're the crème de la crème of foot products, and will help turn even the driest, cracked, scratchy feet into just-splurged-on-a-paraffin-treatment feet. Behold the nine best products for feet.
We have to start out this list with the famous Babyfoot, aka the foot peel that went viral a few years ago. The images of skin shedding like a snake all over the internet are alarming at best, but we have to admit, the product does work.
This foot cream is formulated with 15% shea butter, so it deeply nourishes your feet while also helping them, well, smell prettier (thanks, lavender essential oil!). It also absorbs really quickly, so you won't be confined to your chair/bed waiting for it to try before you can walk without fear of slipping.
You've likely heard of Sol de Janeiro's Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, which is basically a magical skin-softening body moisturizer that smells like pistachio heaven. This product is like that, but for your feet. Cupuaçu butter is the superstar hydrating ingredient, along with antioxidant-rich açaí and moisturizing coconut oil.
Add this foot mask to your Sunday self-care routine stat. You place your feet in the booties, which stay in place surprisingly well, and the product warms up (so pleasant on a cold winter night) and leaves feet feeling oh so soft in just 20 minutes.
This product is best used at night because it contains AHAs, which increase your sensitivity to the sun. Slather on a layer of this allantoin-, glycerin-, and macadamia oil–infused moisturizer, and wake up with softer, smoother feet.
Feet can get a bit pungent, and that's just a fact of life. Enter: this tea tree oil spray. It's cooling and refreshing, plus it has the added benefit of being antiseptic (aka able to kill off pesky odor-causing germs).
My ex-boyfriend had a thing about needing super clean feet before getting into bed. But I'm a morning shower person; taking an extra shower at night was just not going to happen. I don't want to say our relationship was at its best when these wipes were around but—regardless of your neuroses, these wipes are super refreshing thanks to a blend of peppermint and aloe.
The moisturizing gang's all here. This foot cream is infused with avocado, wheat germ, sweet almond, and jojoba oils. It's also got odor-fighting tea tree oil and salicylic acid because your feet need exfoliation too.
When your dogs are barking after a long day, this peppermint-infused foot cream will cool them down. It's also got eucalyptus and aloe for a spa-like experience at home.
