Lush Stepping Stone Review

As much as I love the summer time, I hate having dry, cracked feet that you just can't show in sandals or flip flops so I decided to test out Stepping Stone which I saw in Lush the other day. I couldn't resist the adorable foot shaped stone and for only $4.50 I thought it was a good deal. It's made out of sea salt and pumice and has a fresh smell which reminds me of lemons and limes. To all the people who get headaches from fragrances easily, this one fades away after you use the scrub on your feet so you won't have to worry too much about it.

I recommend using this in the bathtub (where else!?) because it does start melting once it hits water and it does make quite a mess (just like most Lush products!). I first broke off a piece and soaked my feet in water and slowly scrubbed it into my feet noticing that the scrub didn't contain rough particles in it but melted to more of a paste. It almost felt as if it wasn't going to work because I'm so used to foot scrubs having small yet rough particles to help get rid of dead skin cells. It just simply melted and I found that I had to break off more pieces in order to cover my whole foot. I highly recommend doing it this way because if you expose the whole thing into the water it will just melt and disappear which I thought was a bit disappointing. 

After I washed off the scrub I noticed my feet felt smoother and was left with a creamy residue which isn't really that noticeable or bothersome but I knew it was because of the cocoa butter and jojoba oil that the description online says it has. It did get rid of some of my dead skin but didn't create much of a difference other than softness and a more healthier, moisturized look. I wouldn't really even call it a foot scrub because it didn't seem to do enough work on my rough feet and I don't recommend this for people who plays sports or wear heels all the time and have damaged feet. Perhaps over time, with good use it might get rid of more of my trouble areas but I was expecting to have good results the first time around. Also, I don't think the stone will last that long because you keep having to break off pieces and using large amounts to cover your whole foot. Overall, I wouldn't say this product was terrible but it didn't really do what a foot scrub is supposed to do...very disappointed in you Lush!

P.S. I wish I posted before and after photos but I thought it would be weird to be posting pictures of my gross feet on here so just use your imaginations!

Until next time lovelies,
