The arrival of sandal season reminds us of how important it is to take care of all of our skin, especially when it comes to tackling rough calluses and dry heels. While booking it to the nail salon is always an option, the Lather Eucalyptus Foaming Foot Scrub can be utilized from the comfort of your own bathroom for less than a pedicure, instantly smoothing and reviving tired, dull skin in minutes.

The scrub is made with granulated pumice that exfoliates dry skin while lathering into an ultra-soft, skin-smoothing foam. It's scented with the blend of eucalyptus, lemon, and lavender essential oils that are often used in steam rooms and therapeutic products to instantly stimulate and rejuvenate the senses. Simply apply a generous amount of the scrub to damp feet in circular motions, spending the most time on calluses, cracked heels, and dry patches, before rinsing away with warm water. The end result is brighter-looking and softer-feeling feet. Even better, the vegan product is completely free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, and synthetic fragrances and colors.

If you're approaching summer with rough skin on your feet, you're not alone. With the top-selling product only continuing to grow in popularity (its percent of total sales tripled over the past year), I decided to put it to the test myself.

I struggle regularly with workout-induced calluses and water bubble blisters, and hoped this scrub would be my saving grace — it was. After just one use, my feet were drastically smoother and healthier-looking, no longer looking like they'd been to hell and back. Per the brand's recommendation, I followed up by applying the matching foot cream all over before slipping into a pair of socks to seal in the moisture. I removed them a few hours later and revealed the softest feet of my life.

Even reviewers on the brand's website claim the scrub leaves their feet feeling hydrated and silky-smooth. "I love the consistency, the smell, and the lather," wrote one person. "It does a great job at keeping the skin on my feet soft. Every time I use it, I feel like it's a spa treatment for my feet." Another said, "this foot scrub will change your feet forever. It is beyond awesome. Go from old crunchy feet to baby feet in one use!"

The Lather Eucalyptus Foaming Foot Scrub is available for $18 per 4-ounce tub, or opt for both the scrub and cream by snagging the Lavender & Eucalyptus Foot Care Kit while it's on sale for $38.
