Lush Recommendation - Pied De Pepper & Fair Trade Foot Lotion

If you want to pamper yourself Lush has it.

I only buy Lush now and will continue to do so, as I love it sooooo much I decided to EACH DAY share with you a firm Lush favourite of mine that I'm currently using.

Lush are one of those ethical companies. They'll source natural ingredients from all over the world and make sure only the best goes into every product.

They're into recycling and encourage customers to bring back 5 black pots in return for a FREE fresh face mask.

Lush are global, so you can either go to the UK site or the dot com site which will point you in the right direction for your particular country.

Pied De Pepper
Soothing, spicy foot cream.
Pied de Pepper smells like a spicy sauce for a hot dessert, but it's a spicy cream for your feet and it would definitely come in handy after a long walk in a hot desert. Clove bud, cinnamon leaf and ginger essential oils soothe your muscles, stimulate your circulation and ease aches all at the same time. It's also excellent in cold weather for people who have cold extremities and like to warm their feet up on yours.

Vanilla Pod Decoction (Vanilla planifolia), Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Stearic Acid, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Triethanolamine, Clove Bud Oil (Eugenia caryophyllus), Cetearyl Alcohol, Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum cassia), Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), *Cinnamyl Alcohol, *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Eugenol, *Geraniol, *Isoeugenol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
* Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

This is my favourite out of the two foot lotions. The reason I have both is I bought Fair Trade first. As you get a bigger size for less money. I would love for Lush to do a big size of Pied De Pepper. It smells great and is so moisturising. Don't let the 100g size be an issue, If you use this twice a day after a bath/shower I can see this pot lasting 2-3 months. Maybe even a little bit longer. A little really does go a long way.

Use the Ocean Salt as a foot scrub after a foot spa and then use Pied De Pepper. If your feet aren't soft after this then….go see a chiropodist because whatever is on your foot bottom that can't slough away needs some serious help.

100g priced at £6.12

Fair Trade Foot Lotion
Minty revitalisation for feet with fairly traded cocoa butter.

Pink and perky, one very very minty cream for your feet which helps to ease the abuse they get, jammed into shoes and stood on all day. We use both spearmint and peppermint essential oils which relieve aches and make hot feet feel cool again. Arnica and marigold herbs take away the weariness and get your feet ready to wear your highest heels or to be seen naked and proud of it.

Arnica Infusion (Arnica Montana), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Spearmint Oil (Mentha viridis), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta), Lanolin, Cetearyl Alcohol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 18050, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
* Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

This is also moisturising, however when my tub runs out. I'll be sticking solely with Pied De Pepper. This is great if you have tired feet as it contains spearmint and peppermint oil. You can feel the tingles after a good foot massage. In fact it's perfect for a foot massage. Whether price or product size or quality is your thing you can choose between two great Lush Foot lotions. For me Pied De Pepper has the advantage over Fair Trade Foot Lotion.

225g priced at £7.59
