Yves Rocher Lavande Essentielle 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream Review

Yves Rocher Lavande Essentielle 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream is the last tube of the foot-pampering-trio I got from Yves Rocher. So far I like the skin smoothing foot scrub and I really love the super-comfort foot cream. I don't have a problem with smelly feet but since the trio comes with a foot deodorant, I just simply felt that I have to try it.

The 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream is a unique cream that turns from a cooling cream into a powder-soft and springfresh talc formula. It is made with essential oil of organic lavender and botanically-derived active deodorizer to help keep your feet dry and odor-free all day. When applied, the cream is transformed, with a talc effect on the feet, its efficacy is guaranteed to last for 12 hours.

The 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream comes in a light purple plastic tube with a standard flip tab. The body of the tube is opaque so I could not see how much cream is left inside. Just like the other Lavande Essentielle's line of product, the logo of Lavande Essentielle and product's name is printed on the front of the tube. while the list of ingredients and product information is printed on the back. Out of all three tubes from the feet-pampering-trio, I liked the choice of colours on the 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream the best because the lettering are printed in dark purple making them very profound against light purple coloured tube. I just find the colour combination very sweet indeed.

The list of ingredients: Alcohol Denat, Aqua, Tapioca Starch, Lavandula Angustifolia Water, Glycerin, Oleth-20, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP, Coplymer, Polyglyceryl-3 Caprylate, PEG-75, Oleth-10, Menthol, Parfum, Mentha Piperita Oil, Linalool, Xanthan Gum, Tetrasodium Edta, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Allantoin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Limonene, Coumarin.

Just like the foot scrub and the super moisturizing foot cream, this foot deodorant also opens with a flip tab.

The 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream has a very soft runny lotion-like texture and is opaque white in colour. It has a definite cooling effect when applied on my feet. The cream spreads easily and turns into a powdery texture (hence, the talc effect) when it is fully absorbed and dried. I can actually see the powdered texture on my skin. The cooling effect subsides as the cream is absorbed and turns into the protecting powdery talcum but it subtly lingers on long after the lotion had dried. I did felt that my feet stayed dry and fresh all day long even when I am wearing a thick sock to keep my toes warm during cold office hours. I do have to wash off my hands after applying this cream as it leaves a white powdery film on my fingers.

The deodorant foot cream has a peppermint scent fused with lavender. I liked the scent of this deodorant foot cream the best if compared to the foot scrub and the foot cream. The minty smell is very obvious and it gives a soothing effect when combined with the lavender scent which gives a relaxing feeling.

My verdict: I love this 12hr Deodorant Foot Cream. I think I just love all the three foot-pampering-trio that I bought from Yves Rocher and it will become a staple in my foot care regime. I am definitely going to repurchase this again.

You can find more information on the deodorant foot cream at Yves Rocher's official website.
You can purchase a tube for RM45 if bought individually or RM70 if bought in the trio set.
