Neals Yard Remedies: Comfrey & Mallow Foot Lotion*

One of my recent product discoveries is Neals Yard Remedies. After attending their Bloggers event in Solihull back in February (go here to see my post), I have lusted over so many of their products and have been so lucky to try some of them out! 

At the event, I got chatting to the lovely Nicola and after stumbling across her Twitter that night, have kept a steady relationship going with her and NYR. After emailing the very helpful support team asking if they had any products they would recommend for itchy feet, Jane got back to me and very kindly sent me out some Comfrey and Mallow Foot Balm

Now, this maybe cheeky but, it's not actually for me. Adam suffers terribly with itchy feet and we have tried EVERYTHING to make it stop but it just doesn't and it gets to the point that he can't sleep so when I was sent this, it was a godsend for both of us. Then, karma shows its dirty face and for the last 2 weeks, I have had the worst itchy feet ever! So I have taken it upon myself to use some of this holy grail lotion to see what it's all about... Have you ever had itchy feet!? It is probably the worst thing ever because if you try and scratch them, it just ends up tickling and I end up rubbing my feet on the floor looking like a retard! 

"Soothing comfrey and softening marshmallow combined with nourishing almond and wheatgerm to nurture tired feet."

Sounds divine, right!? Well it is! It smells amazing and if you put it in the fridge for an hour before using it, it also soothes your feet and makes them nice and cool. I have found that if I apply this an hour or so before bed, I don't get the itchy feeling at all! Adam agrees! The balm is a thick-ish substance but instantly is absorbed into your skin. I find if I apply a thick layer and just leave it to soak, it helps more than rubbing it all in straight away! 




I am SO pleased that we discovered this lotion, it's helped us both out so much and the best part is that it's organic! 

If you have the same issues and suffer with itchy, horrible feeling feet, invest in a pot of this. You can get it here for £13.00 or nip into your local NYR Store.

Have you tried any NYR Products yet!?
