Dr. Scholl's Products Galore!

Not only did I receive the Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions from Influenster, but I was lucky enough to be chosen by BzzAgent to review the Dr. Scholls Massaging Gel Insoles. I went into a bit more depth with the Gel insoles, as they need a bit more shaping etc in order to fit your shoe, but I will review both products and let you know what I think!

Let's start with the Ball of Foot Cushions.

I received this package of insoles free of charge from Influenster and in return, was asked to give my honest opinion. I don't wear heels very often, but a huge reason for that is because I find them to be incredible uncomfortable after a short time of wear. these cushions are small ovals that have grips underneath to keep them in place in your most sky-high heels. I have a pair of wedge sandals that I have always found to be quite uncomfortable on the ball of my foot, so I thought they'd be the perfect shoe to test these out on.

These are very easy to insert. Just remove from the package and place into the shoe right where the most pressure would be on your foot. As soon as I slid my foot into the wedge sandals WITH the cushions, I could definitely feel a difference. I only wore the shoes for about an hour before my legs started to feel a little uncomfortable. I will say that my feet felt perfectly fine! If you're a bit more used to walking in heels, OR you love heels but don't wear them due to comfort issues, this product is a great option for you. I do think they would help take away foot pain, but if you tend to get leg soreness, I don't think they'll do much for that.

Now onto the larger of the two. The Massaging Gel Insoles.

I received this particular set of insoles from BzzAgent, who also sent me them at no cost to me in return for my honest review. They were also great enough to send me a huge booklet of $4.00 coupons to hand out to friends, family etc, which takes almost 50% off the retail price in most stores. These are a bit more complicated to set up, but still very simple overall! First, let's take a closer look at the insoles:

This gives you a good idea of what the underneath of the insoles look like. They are very soft and squishy and I couldn't wait to slide them into my sneakers as soon as I pulled them out of the packaging! Before you start sizing the insoles, I would suggest seeing if you can easily remove the current insole of the shoes you are using. I wouldn't suggest ripping the current insoles out, but if they can be easily removed, I would do so. If not, just attempt to lay the Dr. Scholl's insole over the current insoles, which is what I did with my Converse sneakers that were used.

The insoles come in a large size, and on the back there are numbered lines that correspond to shoe size. I would suggest cutting one size off at a time and trying them in your shoe in order to get the best fit possible.

Once you've cut the top to fit your shoe, the insole will simply slide in! I can say that I've been wearing my sneakers with the gel insoles for over 2 weeks now and I definitely feel a huge difference in the comfort. I can walk longer distances without my feet aching, and you notice right away how much more comfortable your shoes are. These are a great option for those of you who work on your feet for long periods of time, or even someone who loves a pair of uncomfortable shoes and refuses to stop wearing them! LOL Either way, they are worth the small investment and only need to be replaced once every 6 months. What do you have to lose?
