Scholl Goodies Review :) True Love!!!


As promised here is my review for all the products i got to take home with me after the London Fashion Week On/Off Party Sponsored by Scholl. I have to be totally honest...until receiving these products i hadn't used many Scholl products in the past although i was very familiar with the famous "Party Feet" Aren't we all?!

So before i tell you all about my experiences and thoughts with these products i just wanted to tell you a bit behind the history of Scholl for some of you who may not be aware.


Experts in foot health and comfort since 1904.
Scholl has been looking after feet for over 100 years, ever since the company's founder, Dr William Mathias Scholl, made it his life-long mission to improve the health, comfort and well-being of people through their feet.
This dedication remains as strong as ever and, with the advent of our innovations and new technologies, we are able to provide an ever growing range of footwear and foot care solutions.

With our long heritage in foot care and a sponsors of UK Athletics, we’re keen to ensure Scholl users get the best from our products. This is why we have created The Scholl Team. The Team comprises Dr Phil Vasyli, creator of Scholl Orthaheel, and Salford University’s Centre for Rehabilitation and Human Performance Research, one of the leading research bodies in podiatry.

Whilst on Scholls website i came across alot of great information about looking after your feet and i just wanted to share the Daily Routine provided on the site as i feel it was really very helpful....


Daily Routine
Developing a regular foot-care regime is easy by just rethinking your existing habits. A little bit of care and attention will bring improved, longer-lasting benefits than a sudden attempt to tackle a problem once it’s occurred.


Wash your feet each day
Cleaning away the everyday build-up of dirt and sweat reduces the risk of infection and keeps your feet smelling fresh. Don’t forget the area between your toes – it’s a gathering-point for dirt and bacteria.

Dry them thoroughly
Fungi, such as the types which cause discoloured nails or Athlete’s Foot, thrive in warm, moist conditions. So take a couple of seconds to pull the corner of a towel through the gaps between your toes. You may also want to wash the towel after every use - or set one aside for only drying your feet - since fungi can lie dormant for up to four weeks.

Exfoliate
By removing rough or hard skin, you’ll help stimulate healthy skin growth while cleansing your feet and leaving them smooth and soft. Try Scholl Rough Skin Remover, or for exfoliating and moisturising in one, try Scholl Foot Smooth Shower Scrub.
Pumice stones and foot files are a good way to remove hard skin. The Scholl Dual Action Foot File lets you remove rough skin then buff your foot smooth. The secret to successful exfoliating is to use an even rubbing-motion over a wide area without pressing down too hard. Take special care to go gently over joints and bony areas. For more stubborn patches of hard skin, the Scholl Corn and Callus file can be very effective.

Moisturise
After you’ve exfoliated, applying special moisturiser will help to leave your feet feeling soft and smooth. Because the skin of the foot is much thicker than elsewhere on your body, you’ll need a moisturiser with deep penetrating properties. The intensive action of Scholl Deep Moisturising Cream is one of the most advanced foot care moisturising systems available.

Fresh socks, every day
To help your feet stay clean and odour-free, it’s a good idea to change socks, tights or other hosiery every day. Choose natural fibres such as cotton, to let your feet breathe. Also, by rotating footwear, you’ll give enough time for any moisture in your shoes to completely dry up before you wear the shoes again. The Scholl Foot Odour range is specially formulated to keep shoes and trainers clear of unwanted odour.



So onto the products....i thought i would start with my favourite of them all :) My new true love.... Crackling Ice Foot Spray!

So before you hear what i think about it let me share what Scholl have said:

Crackling Ice Foot Spray is an invigorating foot fizz to cool, deodorise and revitalise hot, tired, aching feet. Its gel formulation turns to a crackling mousse on application, leaving your feet silky soft, cool and refreshed.


Yep you heard it....foot fizz Lol its amazing and so fun :) I got given one of these at the beginning of the night and i have to admit my feet were totally killing me already, in fact they were killing me as soon as i left my house but i was determined to wear my gorgeous shoes (as all girls do...we go through pain for beauty haha) So after about 5 minutes of receiving this foot spray i just had to try it out...so i perked myself down on the gorgeous white sofas in the V.I.P area and fizzed my feet away...it felt amazing such a cool feeling in fact literally ice cold feeling it left such a refresehed feeling that my feet instantly felt better. My feet were sore and aching and this totally stopped it, so for the rest of the night every so often i perch myself back on the sofa and used the foot spray again and be in total heaven again haha!! This product is so great to have in your handbag and to use once you get in from your fun but long night out. I don't think you would be able to do what i did but seeing as i was at a party promoting foot products i felt i could stop every so often and use the product but it is certainly something i will always use after my night out and literally soak my feet in :) I love you Crackling Ice Foot Spray!!! Now onto something i know you all know alot about and that is Party Feet however these so happen to be the limited edition Snowflake Party Feet! Now i have used Party Feet in the past and i have always loved them, they have always worked extremely well and kept my feet out of too much pain on a night out.


So again before i go any further lets hear what Scholl have said:

Scholl Party Feet Snowflake Ultra Slim Limited Edition Gel Cushions provide glamorous cushioning to help prevent the burning pain in the balls of your feet, by effectively reducing pressure on the ball of your foot. The now thinner, improved design provides even better comfort and allows 25% more space in your shoe than previous Party Feet Invisible Gel Cushions. The cushion is designed to fit unobtrusively into the ball of foot area of any ladies high heel footwear. Slip these gel pads into your shoes to make your high heels more comfortable and with confidence that they won't slip out. Add some glamour and sparkle to your killer heels with these NEW limited edition cushions.


Now i don't think i can give an honest review these Party Feet and the reason being is, my feet were literally in such pain as soo as i stepped out of my door and made my way to the train station. I have never experienced such pain in all my life, i wear hears near enough every time i go on a night out and i own about 25 pairs of heals and never have i experienced anything like it. The shoes were quite a bad fit to begin with but i was in between sizes so i just went with my usual size 6 and thought i could live with it, but i clearly couldn't! Again once i was given the limited edition Snowflake Party Feet i popped them straight into my shoes hoping they would do the trick, they worked straight away but then my feet gave it and went back to the exact same pain i had been experiencing before so i feel that my feet were in such bad pain that they had gone way to far for anything to have even helped the slightest!!! So I really feel that i didn't get a true representation as to what Party Feet are really like, so i promise that on my next night out i will pop them in before i head out and try them with a pair of shoes that aren't too unbearable but enough to start to hurt after a couple of hours.


One thing though the new glitter touch is sooooooo cute! Onto plasters now, something very basic but very affective.


Again lets hear what Scholl have said:

Party feet Invisible Gel Blister Plasters provide immediate pain and pressure relief, cushioning protection and help to create the ideal healing conditions for blisters. Can be used on areas which rub to prevent blisters from forming.


So obviously after the disaster i had with my shoes they just had to rub as well didn't they? Haha so the next morning i put one of these blister plasters on. Now i have to admit i have used alot of different branded blister plasters in the past as i do suffer from shoes rubbing as i have very slim ankles...anyone else have this problem?! So i am a bit of a pro when it come to this kind of thing haha! They are basically the same as any other blister plaster however it did heal up my blister alot faster than the previous ones i have tried which meant i could remove the plaster after a day which was great, usually before i would have had to have had it on for a least two or three days. Overall very happy to have found a more effective and cheaper blister plaster. So after the long and traumatic time i had with my shoes i thought it was only right to show you all a few pictures of the little madams before i move on!


You can clearly see where i had placed my Party Feet!!!


Remember i told you about the sparkles on the floor in the V.I.P area?? Well you can even see those bits stuck in my shoe haha!!


hmmm :( not impressed with what i thought were my gorgeous new shoes!!
So the next day after my looooong bath at night i applied lots and lots of the Deep Moisturising cream which totally gave the hydration back which my feet needed!! Was extremely soft and creamy. I was given quite a few sachets of this cream so i have been using it pretty much every night and i love it :) I was also given 3 of the Nail Brightening Systems but seeing as i have had a nice pedicure with bright pink nail polish i haven't removed it yet to try out the product! So like the Party Feet i will give you and update once i have used them!!
Once again Scholl thank you so much for an amazing night and thank you so much for introducing me into such amazing products :)

  3. I never really thought about taking care of my feet but last year my dad had his toe ampuatated and it made me realise that I had to and I absolutely adore Scholl products, they're not very glamourous but they do the job very very well!!

  4. I love heels, and I always want to wear them on a night out/shopping/school/basically anywhere, but my feet are always in soo much pain after 5 minutes I rarely bother. So now I'm obsessed with wedges - they are my best friend! x
