I've had this product for a while and I feel it's time for a review.
I got it two months ago from my dear when he went to Maribor. I wanted it for quite a long time because no matter what my feet weren't SOFT enough. At least compared to his. And he did nothing, and I tried way too hard!
From scrubs to peelings.. well I used them all! So I was hoping for a small miracle from it.

Soothing, spicy foot cream. Pied de Pepper is a spicy cream for your feet and it would definitely come in handy after a long walk in a hot desert. Clove bud, cinnamon leaf, and ginger essential oils soothe your muscles, stimulate your circulation and ease aches. It's also excellent in cold weather for people who have cold extremities and like to warm their feet up on yours.
OH wait! That sounds more like it... on the Slovenian page, it says something about perfectly soft, lovely smelling and fresh feet!
The cream comes in a 100g pot, which is recyclable. And if you bring 5 black pots back to Lush, you get a face mask for free! YAY! Such things keep me motivated! :)
The texture of it is divine. It's super creamy, very light and applies like a dream. It reminds me of a lovely sheer pudding. The scent reminds me of Coca Cola (strong cinnamon with something else) and I really had to get used to it. It's not bad at all, just the 'something' makes the scent spicy.
You get a lot for your money!
Anyway, I used it for a month almost every day. I washed my feet, applied the cream (a little bit goes a long way) and put on thick soft socks. The cream absorbs quickly (when I applied it on my 2nd foot, the 1st one was almost dry!) and it moisturizes my feet.
I can't say that it has a heating effect, because the cream itself is cold. Plus I don't think I felt anything as a heating effect.. (I read somewhere that it's supposed to heat up your feet). But I don't mind it, because this means it'll be good for summer days too!
So the next morning I woke with soft feet, but it didn't last long.. I mean I started with somehow hard heels and the next morning they were SOFTER, yes. But that lasted only until the next night.. So I guess I'd have to use it every single day for a longer period to really see the result..(alright my feet genes aren't good, my dear has super soft feet and he does NOTHING).
But after all, it's not that bad. I mean you get a lot of product, and you only use a tiny bit (in two months I've used only 1/4 of it).

Overall: Well I do like it, I just with I didn't have to apply it every single night.. The scent wasn't my favorite to start with, but then I got used to it (and now I like it even if I'm not a huge fan of cinnamon scent). The texture is one of the best I've ever tried so I'd buy it again just for that. I'll use the pot up, and if there will be any changes I will edit the review. But so far it's good, but not the best. But that's because I'm super lazy and I don't feel like applying creams on myself every single night, eh!
