Volcano Foot Mask


If there's one part of my body that gives me grieve more than any other, it's my feet. Born with, what my dad used to refer to as, 'Big plates of meat', I have always struggled with what I would term 'Big Foot Syndrome'. Always struggling to find shoes in my size at regular shops, I would often by a size smaller and squeeze my feet into them, avoiding the hefty price tag of buying shoes from a specialist shop. This would cause me to develop multiple blisters, sores, cuts and aching feet, all of which would take months to heal. 

Running, going to the gym and being on my feet all day at work, all helped to further punish my hard working limps; I just knew I had to do something before my feet suffered even more. 

Along came Volcano; a product that didn't lend itself to an instantaneous applause. But one that instead, worked its magic and left me very impressed with how much it improved the appearance and feel of my feet. 

A zingy, ice cool, mint mask, Volcano is a Godsend for all those with feet in need of a good pamper. With Pumice to help you rub away dead skin, Kaolin to clean and repair skin and Papaya to digest dead skin and loosen it for removal, this is a spa day for your feet, all rolled into one small little pot. 
This foot mask also contains tomatoes that are deodorising and cooling and menthol, lemon and cinnamon that stimulate circulation and give a very cool feel to the skin's surface. All these ingredients are cleverly blended together to create a mask you can use regularly to keep on top of dry feet that tend to split, tired hot feet that have been standing all day and feet that have been shut up in shoes and need to breathe and cool.

Directions: Smother all over your feet generously and then tie a carrier bag around each foot to lock in moisture and help your feet to sweat. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, allowing the heat to permeate your skin and help to soften the skin. Then rinse off in the shower or in a basin of water. 

My feet themselves were incredibly soft and smooth after first use and there was no trace of the dry skin at all on my feet. The tingle of hot and cold as your feet bask in Volcano, soothes your feet and also helps combat roughness and odour. I find that this is a perfect remedy after being on your feet all day - it gives clarity to your skin whilst ridding them of odours, soreness and clamminess.  

I tend to use this once a week to give my feet that well deserved treat and it's made them so much smoother, softer and more presentable than they have been in years. This has become one of my regularly used products, and I only hope Lush release a variety of different foot masks for me to try, in the future.

  1. I had no idea this was such a fun product. I suffer from big feet (lol) and always have tended to ignore my feet. But now I've noticed my feet are pretty dry, and really need some TLC. Gonna save up some and try this out :D
