Ways to Soothe Achy Feet

We've all suffered from achy feet at some point in our lives, busy days out, long walks, working in retail, a days shopping or a night out in heels you haven't broken in yet -they can all result in your feet aching and with you needing a treat. Even though our feet are nicely tucked away from prying eyes in winter it doesn't mean we should forget about them.

Superdrug have a couple of products available to help you out. Whether you are aching all over after a long day or if you just want to give yourself a bit of a pamper. Treating your feet is a lovely addition to a pamper evening, with these bits you can do it in your own home - you don't have to go for a pedicure.

Run yourself a bath, wind down and relax and give your feet a good scrubbing with the 
Exfoliating foot scrub (£3.49). It will get your blood flowing and smooth out any rough skin. Concentrate most on the balls of your feet and the heels and massage in with circular motions to remove dead skin. When you're done just rinse it off and pat dry. 
The jojoba seed oil and aloe vera helps to soften leaving you with lovely smooth feet.

After you've dried off moisturise your feet with the Intensive Foot cream (£3.49). If you really want to treat yourself I recommend asking your partner to do this for you. I'm a massive fan of a foot massage! I'm often treating Sam to a foot rub after he's been at work and I know how much he loves it and it's lovely when he returns the favour! It has aloe vera to sooth and vitamin b5 to condition which leaves them feeling really soft. The smell is really soothing too. Even if applying it yourself it's a lovely treat massaging it in after a long day.


Applying the comfort insoles (£1.99) to your shoes cushions your feet and helps take the pressure off from standing all day.

couldn't recommend these little insoles more. To be honest it's something I have never thought about buying. But trust me, these little babies made all the difference to a pair of shoes that used to leave me aching. 
You simply cut them to size, there is an outline for men and women and it goes from size 2 to size 12 so it covers pretty much all bases. 

It has two foam layers, one soft layer to cushion your feet and firmer bottom layer to absorb shocks. I felt like I was wearing slippers! It seriously made my shoes more comfortable. 

They also contain a built in deodorant which is always helpful in shoes you've been wearing all day. They also do a fleecy version which sound incredibly cosy for winter boots!

You can save 1/3 on all of these at the moment making them a really affordable treat! 

Is treating your feet part of your pampering routine?

I was kindly sent these for review but all thoughts are my own



  1. I'm a bit obsessed with putting insoles in my shoes - I'm a wimp when it comes to getting achy feet!

    1. I think I'm going to be doing it all of the time now!

  2. Good tips. Though with two little kids its not often I get to wear heels anymore :(

    1. Aw :(
      They're still good to use with uncomfortable flats.

  3. Those are some very nice shoes! I don't wear heels this high but I have thought about buying insoles for a long time, and these products sound nice too! Thank you for sharing!
