I was a little hesitant about trying out the Kiko Intensive Foot Socks, but they’re not the socks that get rid of dry skin and leave your feet peeling for days. These are more about giving feet intensive hydration – and they’re like wearing a pair of wet-on-the-inside wellies. Very odd.
Naturally, they look like they’ve been made for BigFoot, but there’s a little sticky bit at the top that means you can secure the tops so they stay on. Crucially, the exterior is plastic and all the gooey stuff is in some gauze material on the inside, so you can still walk about (although you will need to put a pair of real socks over the top). It’s totally mess-free.
I think Kiko Intensive Foot Socks are for those of us who don’t necessarily use a foot cream every day and then have that sudden horror of staring at pre-holiday toes wondering how on earth you’re going to remedy the state of them. Looking at the ingredient list, the moisturising seems to depend heavily on glycerin but there are some natural extracts in there too – including Broccoli extract!
I’d advise that when you take the socks off – after rubbing in any excess – you stand on a piece of kitchen roll or similar to get the residue off your soles – if you go straight into sandals or flip flops, it will be like Bambi on ice. An unexpected upshot of the socks was that my feet felt cool for a few hours – very lovely on a hot day – and, yes, they felt intensively moisturised. Definitely fun and definitely hydrating. They’re £4.90 and launching any day now at Kiko and Kiko on-line.
