Sample Sunday #2

This is the second post of Sample Sunday.  Basically, every Sunday I will be trying out a different sample from my sample stack.  I've got loads of samples that I never use, so I will be making an effort to use one thing a week, and reviewing it here.  

Last week I tried out The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream and was less than impressed.  However, I've persevered in using it through the week and have finally finished the sample pot I had.  In the end, I found that two applications of the cream were needed to give me the moisture level I like on my face, but then I do like quite a rich moisturiser.  My skin's not really looking much different after a week's worth of use.  I didn't hate the product, but I won't be buying it any time soon.

Anyway, this week I decided to use this peppermint foot scrub from Boots Natural Collection.  This has been kicking around for years, and I'm surprised I've not used it yet, as I like a good foot scrub.  Before I used it, I cleaned out the Vitamin E Cream pot and decanted all the peppermint scrub into it, so I can get a few more uses and not have a half-opened sachet hanging around in my bathroom cupboard. There was a lot of product in the sachet - enough for quite a few uses.


The scrub itself is blue in colour and has quite a thick consistency, with a fresh and minty, but not over-powering smell.  I didn't need much to give my feet a good scrub.  It has quite 'scrubby' grains in it, which I like.  My feet are generally horrendous, so the scrubbier the better as far as I'm concerned. Also, I'd got caught in the rain yesterday in black gladiator sandals, and the dye from my shoes had stained my heels so badly that my feet still looked dirty, even after a serious lather in the shower.  But the peppermint scrub together with a pumice stone and then my Scholl foot file sorted out the staining, and made my heels softer. 

I really liked the foot scrub, it's probably one of the best foot scrubs I've used!  I couldn't find it on the Boots website, so hopefully they still make it.  Does anyone know if they do?

Thanks for reading!  xx

I've found one on ebay, with a sachet of foot lotion as well. Maybe they'll make them again for Xmas.
