Not what I'd hoped for
Purchased

I was hoping for something very rich and moisturizing, but this was not that. Nice peppermint scent, cooling and fresh. But in terms of what's needed to really do the trick on the dry skin on my feet, this did not seem up to that task.

not really sure why I purchased this
Purchased

maybe i'm not the best client for foot salve, but I really did not like the product at all. My feet seemed to be worse after the use than before. But, it was soothing to have it rub on them each night

Weird texture, no results
Purchased

I bought this without receiving a sample. The peppermint smell was fine, sort of refreshing and soothing at the same time. As soon as I stuck my fingers in the salve though, I was like huh? I expected it to be a thick paste or cream to really get the job done - as an ex-ballet dancer my feet are a hot mess. But instead it was a greasy, thin consistency. I still gave it a try, though - slathered it on my feet multiple nights and slept with socks on. The result was pretty unimpressive, though. I didn't notice any difference. If anything, it was just messy. I started to just apply regular lotion after every shower and have seen better results than this product.

Not a fan of the scent...

I was excited to try this but was not a fan of the peppermint scent of this cream. I used it a couple of times and did not notice a real difference. For the price, I don't know if it is worth it.

Smells gross
Purchased

I have very, very dry, cracked, callused feet so I was psyched to try this. I am disappointed, though at least it wasn't expensive. It smells terrible, not at all like peppermint (though I'm not sure why foot products have to smell like peppermint). It has a weird ointment-like, greasy texture and leaves my feet slick and slimy. The next morning, they are back to very dry and cracked.

cheap cheap...
Sampled

I've used different foot salves in the past, and this one doesn't even compare. Other salves I've used have the ability to penetrate through my dry skin and moisturize, while this one barely moisturizes at all. Also, this salve is very greasy and instantly melts upon contact (in a bad way). Overall, its just not for me.

Not as good as I'd hoped
Purchased

This had a nice scent and soaked in quickly (under socks) but didn't make much a dent in my tough callouses and dry cuticles so I returned it.

Great scent
Purchased

This salve has a great minty fragrance, but I don't think that it works better than Vaseline for callouses, and the scent alone isn't enough to justify the additional expense for me.

strong peppermint but that's it
Purchased

This foot salve has a very strong peppermint scent, so it refreshing on tired and sore feet. That is about all it does though. I did not find it very moisturizing and my everyday body lotion does a better job of moisturizing my feet than this does.

Vaseline for your feet
Purchased

Good price and it smells good, I can't complain about that, but it is literally just vaseline for your feet. You could use it as lipgloss. It is very oily and absorbs very slowly or not at all. I usually have to wash it off because I can't wait 45 minutes for it to absorb. Just go with a thick foot lotion, instead.
