Searching for the best foot creams hasn’t been so easy – I don’t know why, but it has been difficult to find ultra moisturising foot creams which are also tough on heels (mine are so I need extra special care).

First things first: start with a foot peel (click here for the UK/Europe and here for the USA) – I have discovered these beauties during our first Coronavirus Lockdowns (hence I made it a ‘lockdown essential) and I will be doing these every season – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Pairing these with regular pedicures (which were not possible in recent times), and you will be good to go.

And just like I do with my hand creams, shampoos or hand washes, I rotate them – meaning I don’t use the same over and over again, so one at a time for variety and for the skin not to get used (and tired) of the same thing.

Without further ado, here some of my favourite and, in my opinion, some of the best foot creams:


The Chemistry Brand Hydration Complex, 100ml

Costs from £12 from Look Fantastic UK  (they also have a North American website) 



Cerave Renewing Foot Cream

Costs £8.50 from Look Fantastic (global), Amazon UK or Amazon US

Margaret Dabbs Hydrating Foot Lotion

Costs £14 for 75ml and £25 for 200ml and you can get it from Look Fantastic (there’s a 20% off code for new customers), Cult Beauty or Net-a-Porter.

Margaret Dabbs intensive foot cream


Margaret Dabbs Cracked Heel Treatment

Costs £18 and you can get it from Look Fantastic (global), Cult Beauty or Net a Porter

Sweet Bee Magnesium Foot Butter

Costs £25 and you can get it directly from Sweet Bee (added discount code to the link)

I don’t know if it is a placebo effect or not, but this cream has been extraordinary in many fronts and I think it’s the best foot cream in the UK. I use it daily before I go to bed and even if you don’t have problems sleeping, it more than moisturises your feet.

In order to get to these 5, I tried a good 20 – and most by brands I trust otherwise, but they just didn’t agree with my feet. So I hope this comes in handy and, as always, let me know if you buy one and agree that it is the best foot cream for hard skin or tired feet.
