Happy feet | Lush Volcano and Stepping Stone review

Nobody wants to talk about their feet. As far as beauty bloggers are concerned there are just some topics that aren’t glamorous enough. Well, here we go…

Sometimes you just need a little respite. Whether you commute on foot, play sports or you’ve spent a night tottering around in uncomfortable shoes; everyone at some point needs to take care of their feet.

Forget those weird foot spas that Boots put on offer at Christmas, all you need is a good scrub and a moisturising mask to make you feel as if you’re walking along the clouds.

I’ll start with Lush Volcano. If you’ve ever used Lush facemasks, you’ll understand how potent and powerful these nutritious skin smoothies can be. I’ve got to be honest, Volcano doesn’t smell the best, but it works like a charm!

Make sure you’re sat by the tub as you’ll be masking both feet at the same time, meaning you can’t walk anywhere! Get two plastic bags at the ready. Much like a hair mask, we’ll be wrapping up the covered area and you’ll need to pop them on your feet as soon as you’ve applied the mask.

You can be quite liberal with your coating. I usually get about 2/3 uses from a pot, which is great as you want to use it all before the fresh ingredients turn mouldy.

It’s quite hard to describe the sensation of Volcano. Your feet feel hot, but cold at the same time!bag feet

Here’s a lovely picture of my bagged up feet. Notice I only masked the underside of my feet.

Once you’ve waited 20 minutes you can peel off the plastic bags. Do this over your bath tub as the mask will have dried and will scatter all over the place!

As you wash the dried mask off, the pumice in the formula will really start to show you what it’s made of. Buffing away any gross skin and helping to remove any leftover mask. If you’re struggling with corns or hard skin, Lush Volcano foot mask will soothe all your aches.

stepping stone

After this I used Lush Stepping Stone. This isn’t necessary in most cases, but I wanted to refresh my feet after the heavy mask.

Packed full of peppermint, this revitalising foot scrub deodorises and buffs your feet, fizzing away like a bathbomb. I’d suggest only using two small chunks, less than a third per foot. If you get the full bar wet it will be a complete waste.

Finishing off with this bar made me feet like I had two new feet! I saved the rest of the mask for when I next have a night out as I always where heels that are too high, slightly hard to walk in. I’m one of those cringe-worthy girls who takes her shoes off mid way through the night, so I certainly needed this little pamper session!

If you’re guilty of the same behaviour I cannot recommend this combo enough!

    Volcano sounds amazing as I always get tired feet, but when I tried stepping stone, I was not impressed in the slightest. It crumbled and disintegrated so easily x

      Yea I know what you mean! It’s because of the bicarb. I usually only take a really lil bit in at a time and create a paste with a lil bit of water :)!
