Burt’s Bees Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream

Pros: a little goes a long way, very thick and moisturizing, 99% natural, getting easier to find
Cons: pricier than drug store foot products
I have a pretty stressful job and long ago developed a routine to help myself relax and calm down each evening.  I fill the tub with lots of hot water and epsom salts or other foot salts, soak my feet while I read a book and drink a cocktail, and then scrub and moisturize them finishing with putting socks on.  I do that almost every night and it is a big point of how I try to unwind and de-stress after a long day at work.

For my recent birthday, I told my husband not to buy me anything big because he bought us first-class tickets to my idea of Paradise for Spring Break.  He decided to buy me lots of lip balm and pedicure products because he knows I use them every day.  Recently I’ve been using the Burt’s Bees Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream.
The Details

According to the label, this is a natural foot cream that combines honey, jojoba butter, and bilberry extract “to gently exfoliate and moisturize dry feet”.  The main ingredients include water, grape seed oil, jojoba butter, glycerin, beeswax, stearic acid, macadamia butter, honey, and sunflower seed oil.

The directions state to apply this foot cream liberally as needed.  It is sold in a 4 ounce plastic tube for anywhere between $7 and $12 dollars depending on where you find it.  Burt’s Bees products used to be difficult to find in this area a couple of years ago that totally isn’t the case these days.  You can find them in Target, Walmart, the local grocery store, and drug stores like Rite Aid and Walgreens.  That is a relatively new development over like the past year or so
The Experience

I’ve used this Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream off and on over the past decade.  I really like it because a little goes a long way and as you work it into skin it turns into a very thick and rich cream to hydrate feet.  You only need to use a small amount of it and it leaves your dry, tired feet feeling smooth, hydrated, and rejuvenated.

I always soak my feet for anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour as I read a book. It is part of my nightly relaxation routine.  I may or may not use an exfoliating scrub or file on them.  I really like using this foot cream because it is so thick and rich that a little goes a long way and it does an excellent job of hydrating dry, tired skin.
At $9 per 4 ounce tube, this Burt’s Bees Foot Cream isn’t cheap but it is definitely worth the price.  A little goes a long way and it deeply hydrates skin on your feet, ankles, legs, etc.
Overall Opinion

I’m a huge fan of Burt’s Bees Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream.  It is a thick and rich moisturizer that hydrates and softens even the toughest and driest skin.  I’ve been buying it for years and I will definitely buy it again in the future.
