With the winter season, comes the need to care for the most neglected part of our body, our feet. Taking it for granted, we often overlook its care and that can be disastrous. Apart from occasional pedicures, what can you do to avoid cracked and rough heels? Foot creams! So, without much ado, here’s my Himalaya Herbals Foot Care Cream review to help you choose better and reasonable.
Product Name: Himalaya Herbals Foot Care Cream
Brand Claims: Himalaya’s Foot Care Cream cares for your cracked heels and rough feet with natural ingredients. Enriched with the goodness of Honey, Turmeric, Fenugreek seeds and Sal Tree extract, this cream leaves your feet feeling soft in one week.
List of Ingredients: Here.
How to Use: Wash your feet with lukewarm water and pat dry. Apply the cream over your cracked or rough heels twice daily, once after bathing in morning and once at night before retiring to sleep.
Personal experience: Thankfully, I do not have cracked heels but due to the regular hustle, I neglect my feet often and hence the skin got a little hard. To smoothen it, I gave this foot cream a try.
When you apply the cream, it takes a considerable time to blend in since it has a considerably dense texture. After massaging a little, the cream blends in completely and leaves soft and supple feet, with a sweet and mild fragrance. I chose to keep my feet open for the rest of the day for three days and the softness lasted for around 6-8 hours while the cream worked wonders during the night. After three days, I used socks to pack my feet after the application of the cream and the cream lasted much longer.
After a week, my feet felt considerably softer. Since I didn’t have cracked heels, this doesn’t justify how well or poorly the cream works. As a result, I asked my mother to use it as well.
I asked my mother to use it for one week and here is what she says: The cream doesn’t blend easily with the cracks, it settles down and takes a while to get absorbed. After a careful application for a week, I feel it safe to say that the cream does work, but the results would’ve been different had I not covered my feet after application. It softens the cracked area, healing the scaly skin but it will take more than a week to achieve totally healed, soft feet.

Rating and Recommendation: I’d give it 3.5 stars for the way it worked, therefore, I would recommend it to anyone who wants soft and supple feet.
