Hello and Welcome!
I hope that your week has been amazing and that your Sunday has been fantastic! I’ve had a really nice day but I’m super tired.
Today I’m reviewing a beauty item that has never made it onto my blog before – a foot mask!
Since going cruelty free, I’ve found myself trawling the Superdrug website on multiple occasions looking for products to test. Superdrug are really affordable, and the fact that all of their own brand products are cruelty-free has seen me make two large orders already this year. On one of my Superdrug website exploring sessions, I came across the ‘Superdrug Tea Tree and Peppermint Sock Pack’. It was on a 3 for 2 deal so I bought two of the tea tree ones, and one honey one (not sure why considering I don’t like honey in beauty products). I tried all of these out and then placed an order for another 3 of the tea tree ones – so you can probably tell that this post will be positive!
These foot masks retail for £1.99 each, but have been on a 3 for 2 deal since I first bought them in January. As of today (25/02/18), they’re still part of this deal.

The packaging is relatively simple but I do like it. The foot masks come inside a similar packet that face masks come it, but slightly bigger. It’s clear from the pictures on the packaging, what the main ingredients of the mask and are. Plus I appreciate that both how long you need to apply the mask for, and its main claims, are printed on the front.
Inside the pack are the foot masks which are sealed together at the top of each boot. You do need scissors to cut these apart. The actual product is inside the boots, so there’s no sliminess inside the main packaging, as it’s all contained within the actual sock. I really like this, as I have used a different foot mask before, and it was pretty messy to get out and put on, due to the product being all over the inside of the packaging.
Directions for Use & Claims
The following directions for the product have been taken from the Superdrug website:
‘Thoroughly wash and dry your feet. Take out and unfold the boots. Use scissors to cut off the top to open the boot. Place your foot inside the boot,n peel off the tab on the adhesive strip to secure the top of the boot around your ankle (adhere tab to foot pack only not skin) Remove the boots after 15-20mins.’
Additionally, here are the claims for the product:
‘Enriched with Tea Tree, Peppermint and Vitamin E to deeply moisturise the skin helping to soothe and soften dry, rough and cracked heels.’
I’ve used this particular tea tree and peppermint foot mask on at least 3 occasions, and the honey version once, so I think it’s safe to say that I like them! I tend to put these on whilst I’m sat doing my makeup on a day where I don’t need to be anywhere, or after showering in the evening. I also have started putting fluffy socks on top of the boots so it’s easier to walk around. I always leave them on for way over the 20 minutes recommended though, and even doing that there’s a lot of product left in the boots. This is definitely a product that you need to massage in afterwards to ensure the product is properly absorbed. My dry skin knows no bounds, and I can’t say that I moisturise my feet often (nobody is perfect), so these masks are fantastic for me. I tend to use them once a week, sometimes more, and they’re doing an amazing job at keeping my feet super soft.
I think Superdrug’s skincare range is amazing and it’s so fantastically priced, you can’t really go wrong! These are £1.99, and I think that’s great for how well these masks work. Additionally, as I’ve mentioned, they’re pretty much always on a 3 for 2 deal, making them roughly £1.26 each if you purchase 3 through the deal.
Overall, I’d highly recommend these foot masks – I can’t get enough of them! If you think you already use foot masks, or would like to give them a try, then I think these are an amazing choice. Be warned though, if you’ve never used a foot mask before, it’s kind of a weird feeling to begin with!
