I wear my flip-flops about 93% of the time (you can get away with that in Los Angeles even on brisk days) and having exposed skin all the time doesn't make for the softest of skin on my feet. I not-so-secretly get pedicures mostly for the amazing loofah action the pedicurists rock on the bottom of my feet. Sometimes I'm embarrassed that they're making fun of me because of how much comes off, a la Elaine on Seinfeld.
Dry skin tends to plague me, so Earth Therapeutics has been a dry skin savior.
The foot balm is made up of three natural plant butters (cocoa, mango, and shea) and has a mix of tea tree and peppermint oils which stimulate and purify as well as aloe vera, that gets in there deep to soften skin. It's thickly textured, free of parabens, and not tested on animals - an awesome trifecta of good stuff getting absorbed by your skin.
The peppermint scent is strong enough to open up a few airways as well - it's like a mini aromatherapy sesh with your toes!
