Soap & Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream Product Review

Friday, August 8, 2014

Better than a pedicure? Genius? Amazing? Soap & Glory makes some strong claims regarding their Heel Genius foot cream (RRP $18 / USD $18)! I hate to be the bearer of bad beauty news, but this cream IS NOT BETTER THAN A PEDICURE, NOR DOES IT REPLACE A PEDICURE. IT DOES help MAINTAIN your feet AFTER a pedicure. However, I can name a million other foot creams that do the exact same thing. This cream is good, but nothing special! Here's how it works! Before going to sleep, apply the minty foot cream (light green color) to your feet, put on socks and then sleep/relax. Your feet WILL feel soft after using it (but it's the same softness as with any other foot cream you are currently using). It does nothing for rough patches, callous skin or cracked heels (I got someone to try it who had rough feet LOL). If you suffer from the latter, get a professional pedicure or go to a podiatrist and then purchase Surgeons Skin Secret balm. Surgeons Skin Secret is ah-mazing and seals cracks in just a couple of applications. I had a split in my heel a long time ago and the Surgeons Skin Secret balm repaired it. I still use it to keep the bottom of my feet soft. This is not a sponsored post. Just sharing something that worked for me :). I want to thank you guys for your comments in my previous post regarding my honest beauty reviews. Beauty products are expensive and if I can save anyone else money on a product then I have done my job. I love researching and testing beauty products (I did this way before I started blogging) and now I get to share everything with YOU. Have A Great Weekend Everybody!

But I know that sometimes they promise too much, especially because they are absolutely not cheap!

Your thoughts are always honest Kim, otherwise there isnt any point! And is always better say the truth, even though means to write a negative review! For sure, this one sounds good but nothing special, the other one you said inspires me much more!:) Have a wonderful weekend dear Kim, hope you are enjoying the summer!:) Kisses! xo

I don't really have problems with my feet but I can try foot cream. But I'm not sure about the wearing socks to sleep thing because I live in a not so cold place and doing so, the heat will probably keep me up at night. The product sounds ok, except that they claim benefits that aren't true.

I haven't tried this one before from S&G but I use a really good foot cream imported from Germany that works like a dream. Thanks for the review. Thanks so much for your great comment…have a wonderful weekend!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

That's some strong claims to make but I guess that's marketing. This foot cream sounds nice but it's definitely not some miracle salve based on your experience. We really appreciate your honest opinions in all your reviews Kim! You're the best, girl :)

Thanks for the review Kim! I always enjoy reading your reviews :)

Sara Gerard said...

Good review, Kim! I am always weary of foot creams. I use petroleum jelly with mint and lavender essential oils mixed in. I am going to try using beeswax next to see how it goes.

Lorena said...

Yet another honest review :)
It's terrible when products do not do what they promise to. It's all marketing!
Marketing will sell the first product BUT the product is responsible for its following sales.

Jane said...

their tube is so cute though! ;)

Jessica said...

I didn't use this product yet! But I like Soap & Glory's products! Amazing review! =)

Two Soap and Glory products in a row that are bittersweet? What a shame. But thanks for your honest feedback, as always.

Hi Kim, I really don't use foot cream that often but thanks for the review of this product! I would love to use some other products from Soap and Glory. Have a great weekend.

I usually recommend my clients to use Vaseline on their heals! I think it would be cheaper and more product than spending money on a heal cream

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Hi Kim I like the honesty that you put each review you do, good weekend!

Cee said...

That sounds a little less than genius to me ;) Thanks for the recommendation about Surgeon's Secret Balm, though. I don't have any issues with my feet but my husband stands all day every day at work in a hot kitchen, so it would probably be great for him.

Imogen said...

They make a bold claim. I have not tried anything like this before, never know what I am looking for.

Linda B said...

Um, yeah, $18 for something I can get much cheaper? Thank you Kim!

Another great review Kim! I agree I try to spare my readers spending money on products that aren't worth it.

Great review dear
Have a great week ahead
Cheers

crafty-zone said...

This product looks amazing and I think that it works great, but in my opinion that it's too expensive anyway :)

Alicia Mackin said...

Well that is a shame but if sounds like it is good as a basic foot cream. And if smells good and you like that and the packaging it could be a good buy, just not for very calloused feet.

Outstanding and honest review as always Kim. Agree with some of the responses here, vaseline work wonders on the heels and other dry skin conditions. Thank you so much for the lovely comment, it made my day! Have a great week dear! xo

Busola Coutts said...

I always enjoy reading your posts. They often feel so much realistic and cute. The foot cream business is not one i really dabble into all the time but lately i have using one by Arbonne just out of curiosity. I think it okay to maintain soft heels regardless. Thanks for sharing dear :).

I've not got this product unhand, but I've got a couple of similar ones here. No doubt--nothing replaces a pedi! I had to laugh at your comment about finding someone with rough feet. :) Another great review. Hugs on your evening! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Wow, you've been busy on the Soap & Glory reviews Kim. I am like you, in and always do research about products before use, but I have to because I have allergies and sensitive skin as well. Thanks for the review. Enjoy your week. /Madison

Kizzy Von Doll said...

I use this, it works really well for me, but at the same time I've used others that were just as great as well, so I could take it or leave it. I don't like the smell at all, that puts me off using it, which is maybe why it's sitting on my desk most of the time. I think it works, but the smell isn't for me. I think what works for someone might not work for another and vice versa. Since we're all different really. It works well for me, but I never have dried out feet or rough skin because I am crazy with taking care of my feet, that stuff grosses me out, hahaha!! It might work on others, but the smell is a no no for me, smells like a medicine cabinet or something, which is strange when you've smelled their other stuff, they missed the mark with that one!! Happy Monday doll xx

PAPS said...

not heard of this before. Sounds good.

Dale Janee said...

I'm seriously on the look out now for any foot cremes as I do all my own pedi's now (they're like $100 here in Switzerland). Thanks for this review and I'd definitely need something stronger for the rough skin but I love this packaging. :)

Sam Cole said...

This is a great product and Kim, you did a great review once again. I have not experience very dried out feet so I can recommend this to my mom.

Uggh---- what a turn off! I hate when a product makes big promises and then proves to be mediocre at best….

I totally need a cream like this in my life. My poor feet are not the most well-cared for... Too bad it didn't live up to its claims though, what a bummer.

This has been on my wishlist for quite some time and everyone says there's nothing special about it. I'm glad that you wrote another honest review to confirm that this product isn't as awesome as the advertising says it is. Oh, and thanks for your foot cream suggestion! I favorited the link! <3

Great review. That's good to know. I get cracked heel during the winter, so I'm always eager to try different things to see if it'll work better than what I'm doing now, which is coconut oil. I'll have to try Surgeons Skin Secret balm.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I've limit my trips out too.

Have a lovely week Kim!

It's too bad it isn't as good as advertised, I do like minty things. Thanks for the great alternative ideas! I use vaseline when I really need to take my moisturizing up a notch! :)

I don't usually use a specific foot cream, I just put on whatever body lotion I'm using before going to bed and it works :)

I never used foot cream. I just always thought a thick body lotion/cream would be good enough for the feet. Maybe I should look into it... hehe~

I love your reviews Kim. Always so honest, trust you in every word. One more product with a marketing trick. Don't like that.

i don't have any major cracks, but my heels are rough and in need of some TLC.

Layla Sprinkles said...

Soap and Glory do have many products which are hit and miss and their foot care hasn't had the greatest press but other products really live up to the name! :)
