I was really excited about this product because it has 4/5 stars on LUSH and of course I love their brand. The Volcano Foot Mask is a mask that covers clean, dry feet and is supposed to stay on for ten minutes. It is very messy, so I do suggest applying this somewhere that is easy to clean. It is also a good idea to cover your feet in plastic, which may seem a little awkward for the ten minutes that it is on.
According to the LUSH website,
“Deodorizing foot mask to smooth and soften. To avoid eruptions of noxious fumes, and for the softest soles imaginable – slather on our thick kaolin and pumice Volcano foot mask to draw out deep down dirt and slough off rough skin. We raided the produce bin and added fresh papaya and lemon juices to cleanse, as well as tomatoes, potatoes and anti-fungal essential oils to deodorize against odor and foot gremlins. After putting up your feet for ten minutes, massage off using the pumice blend to scrub off dead skin cells and you’ll be left with soft, lovely and smell-free feet.”
The mask is very thick, and as I said previously, messy.. this is a major downfall to the product. Actually, after about five minutes of the product being on my feet, it started to crack. The product does have some great, natural ingredients, which is awesome.
“Kaolin , Pumice , Limeflower and Cleaver Decoction (Tilia Europaea and Galium Aparine) , Fresh Tomatoes (Lycopersican esculentum) , Fresh Papaya (Carica papaya) , Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) , Glycerine , Bentone Gel , Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum) , Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum zeyLlanicum) , *Eugenol , *Benzyl Benzoate , *Limonene , *Linalool , Fragrance , Methylparaben , Propylparaben . *Occurs naturally in essential oils“
(from most to least)
The product does not have much smell to it, and I would imagine it would be great to use after a long day of work or walking. It does give a cool sensation to your feet, so make sure you like that before buying this product. The cool sensation lasted on my feet for about an hour, and I did like it a lot. As for my feet feeling softer, I have used better products that make my feet feel smoother.
If you are able to walk into a LUSH store and want to try different products, they willingly give samples to their customers. I’m not sure if they would give a sample of this, but the brand does offer different sizes.
Here are some reviews about the Volcano Foot Mask from the LUSH cosmetics page:
“Liz the Lushie: I used the product the way I was instructed to via the label: Apply to feet, wrap in plastic, wait ten minutes. While I enjoyed the cooling sensation, I didn’t see a difference in the dead skin on my feet at all, which was my true reason for ordering Volcano. The package said to use a lotion after the fact, which makes me wonder which product is really doing the “softening.” While I adore Lush products and will continue to use them, I don’t think this product is worth the trouble.”
“Shelley: This product was extremely effective and smelled great. My feet felt incredibly smooth and refreshed after use. However it was a little flaky/messy so definitely make sure you’re somewhere that a mess doesn’t matter! My biggest complaint was that it created a strong burning sensation. My sister and I tried this product together. For her, the mask burned a great deal while it was on her feet, and for me the burning sensation was worse once I had removed the mask. Maybe it’s just THAT cleansing, but it was uncomfortable.”
“Katie: This wasn’t great. It didn’t work as well I thought it would, better yet, at all. It would literally start to crack off after a bit of time, and it got everywhere, even after it was dry. On the brightside, it smells great, and could be good for people who have constant foot odor/athlete’s foot. Personally, it didn’t work for me, but may work for other people.”
As you can see, there are mixed reviews about this product, but overall, it is messy and and uncomfortable. It may work for some, but I would not buy this again!
