Here’s the thing about pedicures: they make our feet so soft and smooth and they make our toes look purely and utterly perfect. That’s a fact. But what’s also a fact is that sometimes we can’t get them regularly (if at all). When that happens, we refuse to let our toes go without some TLC. After all, we’re beauty editors, and we’re surely not going to enter sandal season with dry cuticles and cracked heels. No, instead, we’re going to take matters into our own hands, and invest in the right at-home products to rival the results of a professional pedicure. A big part of that is foot cream. Okay, we’ll admit that it’s not as necessarily fun to shop for as brightly colored nail polish, but it’s an integral part of the at-home pedicure process. Without it, our feet don’t look or feel the same. Trust us—it’s the key to achieving soft, smooth, and supple skin. So without further ado, keep scrolling to see the 13 best foot creams that will give you a just-left-the-salon look.
With moisturizing cocoa and shea butter, smoothing cactus enzymes, and a skin-freshening prebiotic, this foot cream does a little bit of everything. Its minty scent is just a bonus.
You can’t get more classic than Eucerin. This foot cream is packed with ceramides and moisturizers that soften, smooth, and plump the skin. Plus, since it’s free of parabens, fragrances, and dyes, it’s gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.
Just like all Lano products, this foot and leg balm contains lanolin, which is an emollient that helps moisturize dry, cracked skin. We like the fact that it contains peppermint for a clean, refreshing scent.
This salve uses sunflower and meadowfoam to moisturize and repair dry, cracked heels (although you can use it all over your feet if you wanted to). The convenient stick applicator means it’s quick and easy to apply. We recommend wearing it overnight with socks to really seal in moisture.
Most people classify lactic acid as an exfoliant. While that’s true, it also functions in other ways. It’s a powerful humectant that helps the skin retain moisture. It’s also a key component of the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (or NMF). That’s why it’s the star ingredient of this foot cream, which smooths and softens dry feet.
For intense moisture and hydration, this foot cream is unmatched. It contains shea butter, jojoba oil, and glycerin to quench dry, cracked skin.
Not only does this little silver tube look chic and non-descript, but the formula inside is also super moisturizing. It’s all thanks to 15% shea butter. There’s also arnica and lavender essential oil to soothe and refresh tired feet.
Avocado oil and shea butter combine to soften and smooth callused areas—including the feet. I’ve used this on my hands, elbows, knees, and yes, my heels, to soften super rough skin. It works like a charm.
Formulated with three ceramides, salicylic acid, and ammonium lactate, this foot cream loosens and exfoliates dead skin cells while also maintaining the skin’s natural protective barrier.
This foot cream contains rosemary, silk powder, sage, and essential plant oils. The first warms the feet, the second and third control moisture, and the third balance the skin’s pH while softening calluses.
This is a foot cream that was made for the summer sandal season. With bromelain (a pineapple-derived enzyme) and hemp, it sloughs off dead skin while soothing dryness and irritation.
With seven moisturizers and three vitamins, this rich foot cream is sure to soften even the driest, most cracked skin. Again, we like to put it on before bed (and before socks), so it can soak in overnight.
I know what you’re thinking: goat milk in a foot cream? It might sound strange, but it’s good stuff. It just so happens that goat milk is full of proteins, iron, vitamins, and nutrients. It’s also blended with shea butter, avocado oil, peppermint, and tea tree oil for a light, fresh scent.
Leave it to Burt’s Bees to make a natural and effective foot cream. This one contains coconut oil, rosemary, and vitamin E for instant softness and smoothness.
