Our Rating: 5 stars

Feet can often be an abused body part. While I’m hard on mine, I am quite meticulous in keeping my feet nice. I tend to walk a lot and put them in a variety of shoe types, from pumps and heels to workout sneakers and flip flops (alas, the life of a New Yorker). They take a lot of abuse and deserve some TLC. I figure they take care of me all day, so I should take care of them

I have tried many foot creams over the years and I can attest that Lather has come up with a lovely product: Lather Lavender & Eucalyptus Foot Crème ($18). I typically apply this at night before bed. I don’t put on socks because it’s not needed – it works without them. The scent and texture is pleasant so I don’t worry about the product getting on my sheets. I actually massage a bit extra into my hands too. Lather Lavender & Eucalyptus Foot Crème smells fresh (almost minty, despite no mint in the ingredients) and goes on smooth. In the morning, my feet are well moisturized and look healthy.

Lather stands out because many foot creams are not nice: overly greasy, smell like Bengay or seem waxy or sticky. Another problem with many foot creams is that they do not soak in properly and as a result you can end up sloshing around in your sandals. Lather fortunately is not guilty of any of these issues.

Despite applying generously to my feet at night, this product does appear to last quite a long time. I have tried it for several weeks and have even given a bit to a friend to try, and I’m not even halfway finished with my jar. As such, I think it’s a great value at $18 for 4 ounces.
