Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mandy407 Amazing cream, not so good packaging
This cream is amazing! My feet were dry and I had rough patches. I tried so many different kinds of creams (high- and low-end) which only masked the problem until I would wash my feet. This cream does exactly want it says on the site. It moisturizes my feet and also takes care of rough patches. I no longer have hard thick skin on my feet and my feet are always moisturized (even after I've washed them). The smell is amazing and this cream also cools my feet which is a huge bonus because the last few years my feet have been burning hot and get itchy. This really cools my feet down and I no longer get itchy feet. Today I received a huge compliment from my spa lady - she was surprised at how soft my feet were and that I no longer had rough patches, calluses, etc. Getting a compliment from her was huge!
There is one downside to this product and it is not the product itself but rather the packaging. The cream is thick (which is nice) and gets soaked up into the skin beautifully. It is just a huge pain trying to get the cream out of the tube. I hope they change the packaging because it is really hard to get it out. I've ended up cutting the tube in half and putting all of the product in a clean empty jar (which is much better!). Maybe Origins could possibly consider using a jar instead of a tube for this cream?! Please!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dest My heels and feet are thankful
I admit that any foot product gives me doubt. Being in my 50s, having a love of being barefoot most of the time, being prone to dry skin and having eczema, my heels are challenging to say the least. While I try to get pedicures to keep them healthy and looking well, I can't always do that regularly and needed something that I would use nightly for "in between" pedicures. My heels tend to crack, which is painful and hard to heal.
I decided to try Reinventing the Heel, mainly because I've never met an Origins product I didn't like. I read the reviews, many were mixed, and ordered.
Yes, the product takes a little extra effort on squeezing out of the tube. It's a very thick emulsion that's difficult to just squeeze out quickly. For me, that does not diminish the product quality. If anything, it enables me to not use too much.
The product has a pleasant aroma. It is easy to spread onto the feet and while it is very thick, it doesn't seem to leave a heavy, greasy feeling. I tend to use a bit more on my heels but a thin amount on the rest of my feet and up to my ankles if they're feeling dry.
I can say that after a week of faithfully applying at bedtime, I noticed a big difference. No more nasty, snaggy areas on my feet. My heels were feeling less tight and the already existing and painful crack was healing up nicely. They're visibly nicer and feel better both to the touch and when walking. I've done nothing else different except for using Reinventing the Heel.
I do recommend this product to anyone. I think even if you don't have problem areas on your feet, using it occasionally would be beneficial in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gray311 This stuff is seriously amazing!
I cannot believe how quickly this worked. I am currently 28 weeks pregnant and my skin is SO dry - especially on my feet! I spend most of the day barefoot at home, and we have stained concrete floors, so I'm sure this contributes to my heels cracking in the winter. Both of my feet had HUGE cracks in them - to the point where it was painful to walk on them. I found myself walking on the balls of my feet. I used this the night and bought it and seriously noticed a difference the next morning. I was able to put pressure on my heels! I used it again the next night, and actually forgot to use it last night as I didn't even think about my feet hurting AT ALL. I have used Origins products since I was probably 13 (so a good 17 years), and have never been disappointed with their products. This stuff is WONDERFUL. My husband has been using it at night as well and thinks it is great!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sassy27 Great Product - Love, Love, Love It.
I have been using this product for 13 years and absolutely love it. My heels were so dry they were actually cracked and bleeding! After using Reinventing The Heel for just a couple of days I could already tell the difference and after the first week my heels were smoother and almost healed. I have not been without this product since and still use it everyday. I highly recommend Reinventing The Heel to everyone and have sent it as gifts to my daughters. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the tube it comes in, the plastic is stiff making it hard to squeeze the product out.
