Soap & Glory – Heel Genius Foot Cream Review!


Hello my lovelies!

So today I am going to be doing a review on Soap & Glory’s Heel Genius. I received this foot cream in a Soap and Glory hamper for Christmas from my Nan and Grandad. Every year at Christmas Boots do amazing offers and gift sets on all the Soap and Glory products. I am going to be honest I never used to be a foot cream type of girl, I never found the need for it I just used my regular body moisturiser and put it all over my body including my feet..



The Packaging:  It has The Soap & Glory usual pink packaging, it is a neat packaging and I really like it.

Appearance and Formula:  When I first used this I was surprised at the light blue colour because all the other Soap & Glory creams are either white or an off white colour.. When I checked the ingredients I noticed that there is Menthol in it and that is what gives it the blue colour and cooling feeling on your feet.

This cream is a little thick so you need to smooth and massage it in well, I find whenever I use this after my shower it takes a while to dry in, so if you are in a rush I would not suggest using this until you are about to go to bed. After I use this I pop on cotton socks like it suggests and I head off to bed. When I wake up in the morning my feet feel really soft and refreshed!. Although there is a high chance I may get the same results with any other body cream/moisturiser, I guess the Menthol really helps in making your feet feel “refreshed” which I think is a nice touch. I can’t fault it!.


Overall I really like this product even though I don’t use it every night, whenever I remember that is! But the feeling it gives your feet is amazing. I really recommend this product but it is quite pricey just for a regular foot cream, but I really suggest that you try it out. I will leave a link at the end to where you can purchase it if you want!.

I hope you enjoyed this review and stay tuned for my next blog post.

Stay Smiling! 🙂
