Review // Lush Softy Foot Lotion

Last summer, when I went on my solo trip to Austria, I popped into the Vienna Lush and they offered me a sample of any product. Because my feet were a bit sore from all the exploring, I chose to try out a foot cream and went for Softy Foot Lotion based purely on the fact that it's lavender scented. I was pretty impressed so as soon as I finished my pot of Pied de Pepper, I went straight out and bought a full sized bottle.

Lush Softy Foot Lotion Review

PACKAGING
Unlike the other Lush foot creams I've tried, Softy is in a plastic bottle (recycled and recyclable, of course!). I'm not too sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it's not as messy as the pots but the downside is it's not as easy to get out of the packaging. And, of course, I can't use it towards my five pot face mask (not that I ever remember to do this and, when I do, I forget to use the face mask anyway but still). On the website, it's only available in 100g bottles, although mine is 240g. I'm not sure what's going on there but I would have preferred a smaller bottle since it's easier to travel with and all Lush foot creams take an actual age to use up, by which point they've long expired.
FRAGRANCE & APPLICATION
As I said, Softy has a lavender scent which happens to be my favourite fragrance ever (besides chlorine, but I don't think Lush are about to release a chlorine-scented product, unfortunately). It also has cocoa butter, almond oil and marshmallow root, so the full effect is one of sweet creamy nourishment. Unlike Pied de Pepper and Pink Peppermint, this foot lotion is very light in consistency, so it doesn't feel quite as moisturising. However, it does absorb quickly and has somewhat of a soothing effect too- especially good when my feet are tired. Final positive? Because it's white, it doesn't leave stains all over the place. Woohoo!
RESULTS
When I started using Softy, and realised how light the formula was, I didn't hold out much hope. My feet get really dry so I anticipated this not being as hardy as I need. Turns out I was wrong. Although it's not quite as effective as the likes of Pink Peppermint (aka The Greatest Foot Cream Ever Invented), it is still keeping my heels soft and supple. 
I may not repurchase Softy, mainly because I'm not a fan of the bottle packaging and I prefer a richer cream, but I definitely wouldn't rule it out in future. If you're looking for a light, deliciously-fragranced cream to soothe tired feet, this is the one for you!
