Just in time for ‘summer’, Liz Earle’s newest additions to her line-up are devoted to the feet. The brand doesn’t release products just for the hell of it – that’s why there’s still only one cleanser in the range after all these years. So when something new does appear, you can generally take it as read that it’s going to be a worthwhile addition.
And so, arriving in mid-May will be two newbies, Liz Earle Foot Scrub and Foot Repair moisturiser. The former is packed full of exfoliating and dry- and cracked-skin busting natural pumice, plus avocado and wheatgerm oils, and the latter is designed to uplift and energise tired tootsies thanks to a blend of peppermint and rosemary essential oils. There’s also a nature-identical ingredient called Farnesol included. Farne-wha? Basically, this is a posh way to say that it’s a synthetic doodah that’ll keep odour-causing bacteria at bay, leaving feet smelling sweet. One to pass onto the fellas in your life, methinks.
As a brand, Liz Earle behaves ethically and so Foot Repair also contains shea butter sourced from a women’s cooperative in Africa. Sterling prices will be £10 and £12 a pop, so lets hope the company takes advantage of recent currency movements and passes the saving on to their Irish fanbase.
