Go Faster Feet Lotion

While I have spent the last two torturous months unable to exercise due to an injury I sustained on the treadmill, my body is normally used to running a good few times a week. For those who carry out regular training sessions, you'll know that sustaining an exercise regime as intense as this has its pitfalls - most notably when it comes to the condition that your feet end up in afterwards. 

Although Lush's regular lotions work well at moisturising and softening every part of your body, their scents don't often lend themselves to deodorising your feet in quite in the same way that one designed especially for that area would do. Go Faster Feet is here to rectify this situation  and what a good job it does indeed!

Packed full of ingredients to cleanse, soften, condition and deodorise, this foot lotion is the perfect product to slip into your bag and take with you on your days out. As with Twinkle Toes, this product is dominated by the Moringa Leaf infusion - a light and antioxidant rich ingredient that boasts many benefits for the skin. Pertaining a gentle aroma not unlike fresh leaves, this infusion is rich in protein, essential amino acids, potassium and calcium - working alongside some of the other ingredients to repair and condition dry, damaged and tired looking feet.  

This lotion also contains a generous helping of capirona bark decoction, which is a component not found in very many of Lush's products. This ingredient is renowned in the cosmetics world for its antifungal properties on the skin - a perfect component to include in a foot lotion then! With a further seven different oils and two butters, I don't think I have to tell you just how moisturising this lotion is and how amazing it leaves your skin feeling afterwards.  

What is great about Go Faster Feet Lotion is that it's a very light moisturiser. Upon applying it across your body, it's absorbed into the skin very easily and you're not left with that horrible greasy, sticky feeling that you can often get from certain lotions. Furthermore, it's light enough that it offers you a very refreshing experience which is perfect for when you're looking for something to use after a heavy workout session.  

To me, this lotion smells very much like a combination of Stepping Stone Foot Scrub and The Greeench Deodorant, albeit a little less lemony and a little more 'clinical'. What I mean by this is that it has that fresh, tea tree-esque aroma about it that helps to leave your feet smelling fresh and clean. Unlike a lot of the dusting powders, this is really easy to apply and is much more effective than the powered format. 

I will definitely be stocking up on Go Faster Feet and will be relying upon this an awful lot when I begin training for my next marathon. Even if you're not someone who enjoys exercising regularly, this is still a great lotion to have around - to not only rid your feet of those pesky odours, but keep bacteria at bay and prevent fungal infections from making an appearance.

  1. Browsing through your super cool blog I discovered that "Sympathy for the skin" has (or had) a self preserving counterpart.Why isn't it available any more?Whats the story here? I would love to have my favorite lotion parable-free!

    1. *paraben-free
      Ooopsie :O

    2. I guess its because the became mouldy quiet qucikly and it simply didn't work as a self-perserving version. I had one and it looked disguisting after a few months.
