Miss Polly Organic Tootsie Treatment

Miss Polly has a lovely selection of natural skincare products from soap to facial skincare. The whole look of the products are simple adorable. They look perfect to give as a gift or to spoil yourself with.

Miss Polly herself recently sent me her organic Tootsie Treatment in peppermint. I chose this product because my feet are one of the driest parts of my body and I love anything that smells like sweets.

The Tootsie Treatment is made up of the following ingredients:
Butyrospermum parkii (organic shea) seed butter, Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil, Theobroma cocao (cocoa) seed butter, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Mentha piperita (peppermint essential oil), Limonene* (naturally occur in essential oil)

It has a firmer texture than whipped shea butters but it's still soft enough to scoop out of the cute glass jar.

I do prefer whipped butters but as this is so packed rather than aerated, you certainly get more in the jar. On the skin it melts instantly making it easy to massage onto the feet.

It is absorbed really quickly when I use a small amount but when I use a generous amount I find that it takes a while longer to be absorbed than other butters I've tried. As I like to use lots for my dry feet, I use this before I go to sleep or when I'm relaxing with a cup of tea. This also makes it perfect for foot massages.

Peppermint essential oil is known to have a cooling effect on the skin and the massaging motion of my hands certainly adds to the relaxing effect. The sweet minty aroma gives tired feet a fresh smell as well as awakening the senses, especially after a tiring day.

Overall, I think this is a lovely product that not only serves its purpose but spoils you with it's pretty packaging and sweet smell. It's not as moisturising as some other moisturisers I've tried but definitely better than most as it's a concentrated product unlike watered down lotions. If your feet aren't extremely dry anyway (lucky you!) then I would totally recommend this for keeping them in good condition.

Visit and have a look at the rest of the range. The soaps are the cutest I've seen and the gift sets are perfect for the ladies in your life.


* 100% honest as always :)
