Rough feet
Purchased

I have rough and cracked heels. This product is great for that. It is very greasy. I put it on before I go to bed and wear socks so it won't get every where. It's sandal season now and I'm not embarrassed to wear them when I use this. I just wish it was easier to apply.

My Feet Thank You
Purchased

After using this foot repair salve for just a short time my feet looked and felt so much better. This is a great buy too as this tin will be lasting me a very long time.

Helps for mild dried out feet.

As many of the other reviewers mentioned, the oily texture is an issue - it is messier and slower to dry than regular old vaseline. However, if i sit still for at least 15 minutes while keeping my feet up, (and my mind obviously otherwise occupied!) My only complaint is the applicator issue - I don't have any surgical gloves laying around, and it can tend to get evreywhere. Fast. Including a small aplicator (brush, superzie q-tip, etc.,) with the first purchase, and then allow us to buy more refills as we go along. Other than that, this is the first salve where I have actually see (and felt) a difference in the roughness of my feet. Now I'm not too shy to go get a pedicure! Will definitely buy again, and buy one for my mother as well. Oh, and the peppermine smell is relaxing and a nice touch, not overpowering at all

Mixed opinions on this product
Purchased

I have had very rough skin on my feet for months with alot of peeling. Initially the balm didn't seem to penetrate the skin but each day as I use it, it does seem to absorb more and seem to be helping. Hopefully with more time and regular use, I may see more results. To be honest though, vaseline might work almost as well. Time will tell.

Okay not sure I'd buy again
Purchased

It smells good. It's kinda oily and it's not as effective as I need it to be and i'd say my feet are average maybe even better than some.

Wish there was a 4.5 star

I REALLY like this product! It makes your feet smooth and they look really soft! So heres the thing the first time i used it i didn't realize how oily it was , but that can be felt with by just putting the product on and sitting in a chair with a foot rest or something for a few moments!:) I read or watch a show while i wait!!!!

Wonderful little Salve

I get this as part of a gift and this is wonderful for my feet. I'm pretty rough on my feet and never use to have to use foot scrubs and stuff. This is great for softening my feet. Smell is nice too.

It's okay
Purchased

I love the smell of this minty salve and it goes on smooth. I've used it every night for a week (following directions) and haven't really noticed much of a difference to my feet (softness, dry skin healed, etc)
I probably wouldn't purchase it again just because it doesn't really do anything for me besides smell good.
Some people it may work for, as for me , I have very stubborn tootsies :)

Smooth
Purchased

I received a sample of the J.R. Watkins for hands recently as a sample. I liked it so well, I ordered a full size of this. It smells so wonderful. It makes my feet feel smoother and refreshed. The salve itself feels kind of different than a lotion or a cream; but, I love the way it feels once it is rubbed in on my feet. I love this brand so much I also bought the Aloe/Tea and Lavender for the hands! This is going to be one of my go to products from now on!
