Image the scene - It's Christmas Eve, it's snowing, your feet are freezing, the queues are stupidly long and your out shopping!
To me personally this spells disaster. I start to panic buy on '3 for 2' and that idea of getting someone a unique present totally goes out the window.
So I thought I'd warn you right now to never go shopping on Christmas eve...and if your planning on doing it, just re-think! Go the day before, anything!
With this you can even have a look at the aisles that don't just contain gifts, which is where I found this perfect present.
Yes, I found this is Boots...middle shelf, kind of near all the odd medicines for odd ailments that people don't like to talk about - just above the corn plasters and the squidgy heel inserts that look like chicken fillets.
This is the Reviving Overnight Rescue Treatment that comes perfectly boxed and priced at £4.99.
Now to be honest I think everyone suffers with there feet at one time or another. I know I really do when I've walked too far in stupid shoes and I get that nasty build up of hard skin on the back of my heel that is just so hard to get rid off. I don't mind talking about my cheesy feet as I know must of you will probably be able to relate - which is why this makes for a good gift I'm thinking!
Anyways the cream itself comes in lovely, actually quite heavy glass jar and smells so good - think marshmallow and cream, nothing too overly sweet or sickly just nice and comforting. Plus a pair of white cotton socks, now these definitely aren't the most stylish of things in the world and actually look they would be more suited to curled up Elf feet. But that is besides the point!
I obviously cannot tell you if it works, but I think most foot cream left to soak in overnight in a snug pair of socks would cut it. So I would be shocked if it failed to soften my feet.
But I genuinely think this is a nice but cheap present that most women would actually try out (I'm actually considering buying it for myself after Christmas).
The packaging with the little heels on the inside is nice, the jar feels and looks good and the cream itself smells alot better than I thought it would.
Last minute £5 present... Done!
