I believe in keeping up with pedicures year-round, but that doesn’t mean you have to rush to the nail salon every few weeks to treat yourself.

For at-home foot treatments, the biggest thing to remember to do (especially in the winter!) is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Defeating dry skin is half the battle of having pretty, presentable feet (I’m not sure where you are presenting yours, but mine are exposed during yoga class), and another favorite foot cream in my collection is Max Green Alchemy’s Sole Rescue Foot Balm.

Now I’ve reviewed enough foot balms to be able to say similar things: It’s thick, moisturizing, luscious — but what makes Max Green Alchemy’s foot balm extra special to me is its super-clean smell and texture.

I’m never against an overly greasy foot balm (I put socks or slippers on over my feet post-moisture/massage), but Max Green Alchemy’s Sole Rescue Foot Balm has a nice dry finish that is still incredibly moisturizing.

You could massage this in, let it dry for a few minutes and then walk around cat-hair-covered-carpet and not have too much debris sticking to your feet!

(OK, I should probably vacuum eh?)

My point is that this foot balm isn’t greasy yet has a creamy, thick texture that is a joy to massage into your tired feet.

The fresh, green scent reminds me of tea tree oil, yet that ingredient is further down on the list.

It’s got a nice balance of other rich essential oils to add some depth to the aroma — think clove, lavender, cedarwood and peppercorn — that gives it an earthy, spiced greens scent.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Purified Water, Octyldodeconol (plant emollient), Aqueous Herbal Extract (Olea Europaea* (olive) Leaf, Arctium Lappa* (burdock) Root, Glycyrrhiza Glabra* (licorice) Root, Tabebuia Impetiginosa* (pau díarco), Centella Asiatica* (gotu kola), Arnica Montana* (arnica)), Helianthus Annus* (GMO-free sunflower) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Stearate, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate (plant conditioner), Ricinus Communis (castor) Oil, Garcinia Indica (kokum butter), Butyrospermum Parkii (shea butter), Behenyl Alcohol, Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM botanical sulphur compound), Octyl Stearate, Buxus Chinesis* (jojoba) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Panthenol (pro vitamin B5), Aloe Barbadensis* (aloe vera) Leaf, Melaleuca Alternifolia* (tea tree), Lavandula Angustifolia* (lavender), Cedrus Atlantica+ (atlas cedarwood), Oenethera Biennis* (evening primrose) Oil, Glycine Soja (soy amino acid), Glycerin (vegetable source), Sucrose Cocoate, Parfum (frangrance of plant origin), Syzygium Caryophyllata* (clove bud), Piper Nigrum* (peppercorn), Mixed Tocopherols (plant derived GMO-free vitamin E)

* Organic + Wildcrafted

Another relatively basic yet important aspect of Max Green Alchemy’s Sole Rescue Foot Balm is the packaging.

Is it revolutionary? No. Is it efficient? Yes. Is it hygienic? Chyeah.

I love a good squeeze tube with a cap on the bottom so gravity can do it’s thing and help push every bit of product to the bottom. Plus, this keeps other people’s grubby little fingers out of the goods.

(For something like a foot balm that I may share with others, I shudder at the thought of people sticking their fingers in an open jar!)

Bottom line on Max Green Alchemy’s Sole Rescue Foot Balm: It’s a repurchase! The price is fair, the packaging is smart and the actual product is great for anyone in your household.

Now, go take care of your feet! Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that your tootsies should suffer.
