This month I’ve been testing three products from mypure, all Alva… this review is for the Alva Foot Lotion.
£10.25 for 100ml
When I chose this foot lotion to review this month, I was thinking it would be a creamy thick lotion that would sort out my dry and cracked feet. Well it’s not that, but what it is I like very much.
Alva Foot Lotion is a light, thin cream that rubs into your feet easily – you don’t need much as it goes a long way. It has a slightly medicated (as in pepperminty, or antiseptic) smell to it, although I know there is nothing but natural ingredients in it, and makes the feet tingle as you rub it in. It’s the manuka oil and other all-natural essential oils doing their work on my tired feet, looking after my skin and helping to sort any problem areas.
I especially liked using this lotion after running. Apart from the action of rubbing my feet stimulating the blood flow (I think the circulation in my feet must be a bit rubbish coz they’re always cold and after exercise I often get pins and needles), the cream felt like it was doing some sort of healing – making my feet feel fresh and ready to walk me around for the rest of the day.
