LATHER Eucalyptus Foaming Foot Scrub 4.0 oz

LATHER Eucalyptus Foaming Foot Scrub with Pumice ($18) worked wonders on my feet and I would totally recommend it. Post LATHER’s foot scrub, my feet were pretty dry and in desperate need of a pedicure (it had been a month since they were professionally pampered; don’t judge me). I’m constantly on my feet – like a true New Yorker – and I do love wearing heels. While I usually make sure to clean and moisturize my feet every night, a scrub was nonexistent in my regimen.

And so for my first product review for Truth in Aging, I decided to try the LATHER foot scrub. However, after opening the jar, and removing the safety seal, I was hit with a strong, unfamiliar smell. The scent was so overwhelming that I was seriously considering placing it back on the shelf and returning to it another day. I opted to look up the ingredients instead, though... The fragrance is a mixture of lavender, lemon and eucalyptus (the stinky culprit!). Eucalyptus is a plant that mainly grows in Australia and is used medicinally for many purposes – one being clearing the nasal passages (go figure). Research also led me to find out that pumice, what makes this scrub a scrub, is actually fine-grained volcanic rock. I had heard of walnuts in scrubs before but volcanic rocks were a first for me. Needless to say, my interest was piqued and I was ready to give LATHER a second chance.

I took a small scoop (about the size of a nickel) and placed it on my damp foot. Following the instructions, I began working it in, in circular motions – targeting my heel. Immediately, I could feel the pumice scrubbing away unwanted skin and a more polished foot emerged. After rinsing, my foot felt thoroughly cleaned and a bit smoother. It wasn’t until my second trial, when I used my Clarisonic Plus body brush, that I saw the foam that the foot scrub promises. As time went on I could see and feel a difference in my feet that was undeniable. Thanks to citrus medica limonum peel oil, among other ingredients with revitalizing properties, the skin on my feet had a healthier appearance and felt rejuvenated.

The LATHER Eucalyptus Foaming Foot Scrub is great for anyone with dry feet in need of a pick-me-up. It doesn’t replace a professional pedicure, but it does a great job at bringing unpedicured feet to life, as well as treating feet between pedicures. Oh, and if you’re worried about the smell, don’t be; it fades after rinsing. My sensitive nose eventually got used to it.
