Review of the product:
I have bought this foot butter after my positive experiences with Mandara SPA Tropical Blooms shower gel, which I reviewed on my blog earlier during my grocery shopping at Sainsbury’s.
As I always read labels what is on the ingredients list and I am very impressed with Mandara SPA products how they are formulated using naturally active raw materials.
This is rare nowadays to see such high quality of products in a grocery supermarket.
Here are my impressions:
*It smells nicely of grapefruit, sweet orange, lemon and patchouli -check in the shop if you really like it. My first impression was mixed, but later I liked it. It gives that freshness smell, which foot cream needs to have.
*A heavy consistency-it is much richer than a typical body butter. It does not soak in for around 10 minutes and it leaves a sticky film. It can be a very good foot softening mask if you apply a thicker layer of feet butter on your feet and wear soft socks over night and in the morning your feet will smooth like a baby bum.
*Ingredients: as all Mandara Spa products this one is free from SLES, SLS, parabens, mineral oils, animal ingredients (except honey, beeswax and milk) and DEA, that makes them a good choice for sensitive skin.
*It does work-it leaves foot skin moisturized and soft thanks to Urea, Shea Butter and jojoba oil and beeswax.
*Availability: you simply go for groceries shopping and you can purchase this high quality product with a minimal effort.
*Price-it is a lot £5 for a foot butter, but not for that excellent ingredients.
*Scent: Tropical Blooms is my favourite of Mandara Spa-its fresh scent is not my favorite, I did not buy any other product of this Island Paradise line, as I prefer sensual and warm notes, but there is no (yet-I hope!) foot butter in Mandara Spa Tropical Blooms series.
*Package: it is hard to get to this butter when it comes to the end. Its rich consistency packed in a tube costs a lot of effort to get the rest of it, so I have ended up with cutting it in half with scissors. I guess, for body or feet butters tube is not the best idea for packaging, tub is a better solution.
If you are in Sainsbury’s for a weekend shopping, give it a try. It is worth its price.
I am using now my third tube of Mandara Spa Island Paradise Revitalizing Foot Butter.
I simply like Mandara SPA for its quality ingredients products and providing me with my home-SPA cosmetics at a good price.
