T For Toes Foot Powder


My feet are probably the only part of my body that is not as pampered and smelling great as every other part of me, no matter how hard I try to maintain them. I use Volcano once a fortnight and a vegan pumice stone daily to smoothen out my heels and banish dried skin. Yet, they still look like two little sad monkeys at the end of the day. Given that they're one of the most overworked parts of the human anatomy, I can recognise why they demand a lot of up-keep, but it would be nice to know I could get my 'plates of meat' out in public and not have people throw themselves off of buildings in disgust.

T For Toes has become a godsend for me because I have not found another product in existence that does what this simple dusting powder has done for me and my feet. Who knew that a handful of ingredients could have such a dramatic but positive effect on someone's disposition?

This product is described as a deodorising powder that absorbs sweat or moisture and banishes away the microbes that causes nasty smells. Tea tree is an antibacterial, antifungual and antiseptic essential oil that gives this powder it's distinctive smell - a warm, spicy, fresh grassy aroma. It helps to heal cuts and small wounds and stops the spread of bacteria; those of you who have warts, bunions or corns are safe in the knowledge that using this will not spread the bacteria across your feet.

T Is For Toes also features kaolin - a type of mud that helps to absorb excess moisture and keep your feet as dry and refreshed as they can be; lime oil gives the powder a pleasant, uplifting fragrance that helps to mask the stronger, more stubborn odours. Lush have also included astringent herbs such as horsetail and broom to control sweating when the powder is being worn. Together they give off a clean, citrusy, almost sterilised sort of smell. It's not something you'd want to use as a perfume but it does it's job remarkably well, and for me, that's all that matters. 

To use, you can either apply this directly to your feet after a shower, when your feet are completely dry. Or you can sprinkle this into your shoes to help soak up any moisturise after wear or just to help deodorise well-worn trainers that have a bit of a pong to them. 
As my job requires me to move around a lot and be on my feet for the most part of the day, I like to sprinkle this powder in my shoes when I get home. I then reapply it to both my feet and my shoes the next day, just to keep on top of those nasty smells that can sometimes appear. At first I was a little worried that I'd damage my shoes as the powder does tend to leave it's mark inside. However, this fades and then disappears very quickly and leaves no trace that it was even there in the first place. 

Since I began using this about six months ago, I have not once noticed any pesky smells or dampness in the shoes that I am wearing and the condition of my feet has improved immensely. They're now soft to the touch, without any dry skin or blemishes, and I feel confident that I could wear open-toed shoes in the summer without any worries. 
This product comes in very handy and is easy to carry with you in a bag or purse. It's super easy to apply at any time, whether you're out or about or in the office. Priced at £4.45 for a 60g bottle, I think this is a very reasonable amount for such a life-changing product. This small bottle lasts me upwards of 4-5 months, although I should point out that I use this quite excessively so you may find it lasts you a lot longer.

T For Toes Dusting Powder is a staple product in my household and will continue to be so for a very long time. Pick it up for yourself and enjoy the freedom of having beautiful feet all year round.

  2. Forgive me for asking a silly question, Jen - but what about regular pumice stones is not vegan? I thought they were just rocks and now I'm a bit creeped out if they aren't o_o lol
