8 Foot Creams That Will Save Your Un-Pedicured Feet

We need foot cream more than we'd like to admit. Most of the time, all we give our ashy, dry heels is a pass of leftover body lotion in the morning. By the time we've made it halfway through the day, our feet are back to looking sad and pasty, which is by no means cute in sandals — or if we're walking around the house barefoot in quarantine, for that matter.

Even though foot cream is an extra step, it'll help keep your toes and heels looking and feeling supple all day — even if it's been months since your last pedicure. One caveat, though: Not all foot creams are created equal. Some of them are so lightweight, it doesn't feel like they're doing much of anything — while others are so greasy that running out to get the mail in in slippery flip-flops becomes a harrowing experience.

To help your toes live their best lives, we rounded up some of our favorite formulas for soft, fresh feet, ahead.

We’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.

O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet Foot Cream

Don't let the no-frills exterior fool you — this stuff is like a trip to the spa for tired, dry toes. In fact, people love it so much, you can buy up to a 12-pack (which, in case you were wondering, is $64, or $5.33 per tub.).

Origins Reinventing The Heel

For a skin-care-meets-foot-care moment, we love Origins' decadent heel cream, which is infused with rose fruit and jojoba oils plus salicylic acid to gently exfoliate rough patches.

Amlactin Foot Repair Foot Cream Therapy AHA Cream

A good foot cream doesn't have to break the bank. Case in point: Amlactin's AHA-infused formula, which contains the brand's hero ingredient (lactic acid) to gradually reveal softer, smoother skin over time.

Ahava Mineral Foot Cream

If you start smoothing on this anti-fungal lotion (with soothing aloe vera, avocado oil, and tea tree oils) nightly, you won't recognize your heels by the end of the summer.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius

This Soap & Glory foot cream has macadamia oil, menthol, and orange and lemon extracts to soften rough skin. The formula absorbs quickly, so you won't slip and slide around your hardwood floors. The best part? It smells heavenly, and you'll actually look forward to slathering your feet every morning.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream

Shea butter is the star ingredient of this cream, which also has lavender essential oil to soothe tired, dehydrated feet. After massaging this in, your feet will feel soft and touchable under the covers, without sticking to your 800 thread-count sheets.

Rituals The Ritual Of Dao Soothing Night Balm

If your feet require more than a light coating of lotion in the morning, try using this balm at nighttime. It's on the thicker side and has shea butter and white lotus flower. Massage in a generous amount, and layer with socks overnight if you're feeling super committed. Either way, you'll wake up with softer, smoother feet you'll want to show off with open-toed shoes.

Vaseline Clinical Care Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Cracked Heel Balm

No flowery fragrance or frills here: Just Vaseline's Barrier Repair Technology with glycerin, lipids, and Vaseline jelly, which is like the holy trinity for dry feet. Massage a thin layer into your skin a few minutes before leaving the house to let it sink in before putting your shoes on.

CeraVe Foot Cream with Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is a prime ingredient for our facial skin-care routine, but it also works wonders for feet plagued by dead skin. This tube has essential ceramides, and the beloved BHA to help gently exfoliate without having to endure the harsh tickling sensation from a pumice stone.
