(Review, Before/After Photos): C.O. Bigelow Mentha Tingling Foot Cream and Chapped Hands Remedy

Since the colder months are around the corner, it’s time to stock up on necessary items. I don’t mean food and snacks, but remedies that fix dry skin.

C.O.Bigelow, the country’s oldest apothecary, really knows its formulations. From the Mentha Tingling Foot Cream to the Chapped Hands Remedy, each product is carefully numbered, and the presentation is so “apothecary.” The only thing you’re not getting is a doctor in his lab coat writing out prescriptions.

Geeks that we are, we love the presentation and packaging — it really fits the brand.

We had the opportunity to review two products that are included in this giveaway.

The Chapped Hands Remedy is a sleek portable tube that is super cute. Its formulation containing 40% glycerin makes your skin hydrated within minutes. For $14, this is a winter lifesaver. Take a look at the before/ after photos below (we also love that it’s TSA friendly at 1.7 oz):

The Tingling Foot Cream contains 2.25% Peppermint Oil and comes in a sleek green tube that’s a perfect stocking stuffer. It also contains aloe vera, so you can use it to soothe tired skin especially if you’ve been out in the sun. The best way to use this is to wash your legs and dry off with a towel before you apply this all over.

It’s not too pepperminty either, which is a characteristic of most foot creams.

In honor of fall and winter, we’re giving away a set of the below items to one lucky winner:

C.O. Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine: flavored Mentha lip balms which give you a glossy shine. $7.50.

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint: mint-infused lip balms. $7.50 each.
