Review: Lush Pumice Power

I may have mentioned it before, but I'll mention it again: I hate feet, including mine. With that hatred comes neglect. My feet have some unfortunate dry spots and my toenails go unpolished 99% of the time, but I'm working on changing that, starting with this past weekend's purchase.

I took a trip to Lush and bought their Pumice Power, with the main ingredients being pumice powder, coconut oil, and organic sweet orange oil. It smells exactly like fresh oranges, and it is heavenly.

It's teardrop shaped, or maybe it looks like a giant orange seed. Either way, it fits into the palm of your hand. In the shower, I exfoliated my feet with firm, circular motions with this little guy. It was torture because my feet are so ticklish.

If you've ever had your feet stained orange from wearing Rainbow brand flip flops in the rain, that's what my feet looked like during this process. No fear though, it washed right off when I rinsed.

I had to use a bit more force on the drier parts of my feet (the sides of my heels), but when I got out of the shower I was pleasantly surprised. My feet were super soft! I even let John touch my feet, which NEVER happens. I wanted to let him feel how soft they were, and he agreed! The sides of my heels still felt like they needed a tiny bit more work, but there was still noticeable improvement. Like if I had endured the tickling for a few more seconds, I would have been fine. Besides that, my feet were so soft.

I've used it on my elbows and other spots that get dry too, so you obviously don't have to reserve it just for your feetsies. If you want to use it as a full body scrub, I wouldn't recommend using it every day because it is quite abrasive.

Would I repurchase?: Yes! The smell is wonderful and it leaves my feet feeling like a baby's bottom (I hate that phrase, but it's pretty accurate). It requires a little extra elbow grease if you have some extra troubled spots, though.

What products do you use to pamper your feet?
