Fresh Step & Blister Shield Plasters


I don't know about you but my feet tend to be one of the most neglected body parts. Thinking
about my own personal foot care, I kind of feel a bit guilty since my feet work pretty damn
hard carrying me around all day long especially on occasions when I squeeze them into tight,
cute looking shoes, heels and boots ignoring their silent screams. 

When it comes to sweaty feet & odour, sometimes I believe it comes down to the shoe you
are wearing as oppose to your actual feet being to blame for that offending smell. I once had a
 pair of boots which every single time I took them off I had to leave them outside my back door
 to air out because the scent they gave off at the end of the day would take over my whole little
 unit! No other shoe I wore did that, so I think it was just the cheaply made (yet super cute) boots
to blame.

Now a days when I am wearing sneakers or any kind of closed in shoe, I admit by the end of the
day my feet aren't exactly floral fresh nor dry as they tend to sweat in those tight enclosed spaces.

It makes perfect scence to me to invest in a deodorant for your feet as I do for my armpits.
Both sweat and both produce a less than pleasant natural odour.  I have been using this anti-perspirant
by Scholl lately and it has been working a treat! The scent is light yet highly effective when sprayed
directly onto the sole of each foot at the beginning of the day to keep your feet smelling fresh and
feeling dry for a full 24 hours.

Available to purchase from Priceline, Woolies & Coles + others for $10.99! (AU)

I have used foot patches in the past and nothing beats these plastic ones with the inbuilt cushions!
They are descreet, soft and simply blend right into your feet. These patches come in two different
convenient sizes. The larger ones designed for the often cracked heels area of your foot and 
the smaller for the sides where dry skin on feet & bunions are known to occur. 
Both can be easily cut down or shaped into any size you require.

I admit, I have been quite ignorant and not used foot patches in quite some time. I spend most of my
time at home with the little ones bare foot, however recently I have dug out my good old (rediculiously uncomfortable) 
super cute black ankle boots for the Autumn season which my feet
know all too well and cringe at the thought of them. However I cannot bring myself to part ways with
them as they match just about every single outfit I own and let me tell you, patching up my feet in
these Scholl Blister Shields has made wearing these almost bareable! I usually get those increibly
tender fluid filled blisters on the back of both my heels and each side of my baby and big toes,
however since applying these when I wear these booties, I have blisters no more!! 

My feet do still get sore after I have worn those shoes for a few hours though so I can't push my
luck too far. But these definitely have helped!

  1. Hi Candy! I've been meaning to get some deodorisers for my kids! even little sweaty feet make shoes smell (or vice versa!) Added these products to my shopping list today :)

    1. That's great to hear! I use the Fresh Step on my kids shoes too! :D

  2. This post reminds me I need to use my Scholl Pedi Foot File again. Time for some feet pampering! :)

    1. I use that one too Di, although not often enough! My feet always seem to have so much dead skin on them! Argh & eww! lol

  3. I agree that some shoes seem to make feet smellier than other shoes. I'll have to check out the Scholl anti-perspirant for my feet when wearing those shoes.

    Thanks for linking this post to Monday Makeup Madness!

    1. It is so true! I think it comes down to the quality of the shoe. The more poorly/cheaply made, the more smelly it will likely be unfortunately! :/ Always happy to participate in your MMM! :D xoxo

  4. I sometimes tend to have this problem in summer with the cheaper pumps that I wear. Will look out for this product!

    1. Oh yeah, the warmer weather doesn't help much does it? My feet sweat and stink way more in Summer! This has been a great product to have around so I will see how it goes once the weather starts to warm up again. x

  5. Those blister sheilds are so good! I use them all the time when I wear heels for a big night out! xx

    1. Yep, do you use it too TP? Thanks for stopping by for a read lovely lady!! xx

  7. Both of these look great, especially the Fresh Step stuff! I always thought it was my nasty cheap shoes too haha maybe I'm wrong.. oops! xx

    1. Nah I blame the cheap shoes too! At least with the Fresh Step you can still wear them and not worry about your feet smelling bad afterwards! :D

  8. I just came across you blog! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams, starts on Fridays at 9AM eastern time and runs until Wednesday night. :D Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party.
