Christmas Gift Idea: Beauty Feet – Review and Giveaway

We spend a lot of time on our feet, but they are one of the parts of the body that is most neglected when it comes to giving ourselves a little TLC. Wearing uncomfortable shoes, walking around in bare feet, it has to be said that our feet are not always treated the best and this can lead to hard, dry and rough skin, particularly on the heels.

The SockShop have come up with a rather brilliant, pain free solution in the form of its Beauty Feet socks. These are socks that have a heel pad, that is also an active nourishing pad, containing a patented nourishing formula, a closely guarded Chinese Herbal recipe and Nano-silver. They say:-

Making your feet beautiful is now as easy as pulling on a pair of socks!

The great thing about these socks is that they are very wearable and perfect for everyday wear. They come in classic black which makes them a great work wear, trouser sock. They are also not too thick, so they can be worn with your smartest heeled boots as well as with Uggs and Wellies when it gets very cold.

 

In terms of effectiveness, 92% of people saw a marked improvement in the appearance of their feet. It is best to give the socks between 7-14 days to completely revive your heels.  The socks work best when you wear them for at least 8 hours a day and are machine washable and remain effective for at least 300 washes.

Beauty Feet would make a great stocking filler, but if you want to try them before Christmas, you can enter the competition below to win.

HJ Hall Sock makers since 1882

HJ Hall are a true Midland heritage story. Founded and still based in Leicestershire, the name HJ Hall has become synonymous with the finest quality in socks, both for males and females and for a range of uses, from fashion to highly technical, sturdy walking socks. They also developed the ‘soft top’ design which was designed and created to alleviate problems caused by tight elastic around the top of socks. These are now celebrating more than 25 years in production and are a clear market leader in their field. Softop™, and the brands Diabetic socks, are the only socks endorsed by The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. All Softop™ socks come with an unconditional 6 month guarantee of wear. When it comes to socks, HJ Hall know their business.

HJ_HALL_about_us

I was keen to try some of the socks for myself, especially as I love products that are manufactured in the Midlands and so have a local slant to be proud of.  I also suffer from diabeties, so have to be extra careful when it comes to caring and looking after my feet. I was sent some beautiful products from the fashion socks range, these combine really pretty modern designs with the characteristics that make HJ Hall socks so special.

Many of the fashion socks range are made from supersoft bamboo. This makes it supersoft, but also gives the socks anti-bacterial and deodorising properties too. This allows your feet to breathe when you are wearing the socks, super important as the weather turns colder and we wrap our feet in Uggs, wellies and other types of boots that do keep them warm, but can also make them sweat. These socks are also friendly to the environment as Bamboo is a sustainable resource.

I love my HJ Hall socks

With Christmas coming up, and with socks being a well known favourite gift for dad, grandad and other male relatives, I would definitely recommend adding a touch of luxury to a Christmas stocking this year with a pair of socks from HJ Hall.

More cute designs from Chatty Feet

Chatty Feet, the company who ‘put quirky characters at your toes’ have recently launched a whole range of new designs.  As ever, the socks are, quite literally, full of character, they are funny and quirky and can either be a real talking point that you show off to your friends, or a little secret that you hide underneath your business suit. I love the idea of Chatty feet, putting the fun back into your sock drawer!

I was sent a pair of Yoko Mono socks to review in size 4-8. I quite honestly adored them. Obviously based on a gorgeous Japanese lady (how funny is the punny name!), the design is bright and oh so colourful. The gorgeous blue of Yoko’s kimono is just lovely, and teamed with deep red and black, it makes these a bright and vibrant pair of socks that you won’t really want to hide. The design is on both sides of the sock, making them cute and funny from every angle. If you are daring, you could be teaming these with heeled sandals or Swedish hasbeens for a fashion forward look. Me, I wear them with my best pj’s as a bed sock now the warm weather seems to have disappeared.

DSCN8958[1]Chatty Feet make a great gift idea, and not just for the young at heart. The socks also come in smaller sizes for children, as well as in sets with one pair for an adult, one pair for a child (the Mini Me sets). Joe was also sent a new design, a super hero sock by the name of Commander Awesome. Again, the bright vibrant colours make these socks very attractive, especially for children, whilst the super hero design made these an instant hit with Joe. Joe insisted on showing his socks off to everyone, his nan said they were snazzy, which I think may just be the perfect word for them. The children’s designs start at 12-24months, and go up to age 4-7 years.
