IF you don’t like taking vitamins in the form of tablets, then gummies could be ideal for you.
We take a look at these chewable vitamins, which taste and look like sweets, while our Beauty Editor tests summer-ready foot products.

Most people should get all they need of this by eating a varied, balanced diet.
But if you can’t, taking an iron supplement of up to 17mg a day is unlikely to cause any harm.
Wicked Gummy Co’s Iron Gummy has a delicious peach flavour and contains 14mg of iron to help reduce fatigue, boost immunity and treat anaemia.

These Boots treatment socks will leave your skin extra smooth
- Boots Foot Peel Socks, £5, down from £8.99, boots.com – buy now
These treatment socks, which contain exfoliating acids to remove rough, dead skin, are infused with tea tree and peppermint to nourish and soften.
Put clean, dry feet inside and leave for 90 minutes, then pat dry with a towel.
It can take seven to ten days before the skin starts to peel, but you can speed up the process by soaking your feet in water for ten to 20 minutes a day.
My skin was left wonderfully smooth, but it’s laborious.
The Cowshed foot cream is luxurious and leaves no greasy residue
- Cowshed heal foot cream, 150g, £19, boots.com – buy now
Enriched with grapefruit, rosemary and clary sage to give a rich, earthy scent.
A blend of avocado oil, shea nut butter and coconut oil provides intense moisture, while AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) gently exfoliate to leave feet soft and smooth.
The cream is thick and luxurious but is completely absorbed into the skin, leaving no sticky or greasy residue.
This cream is used in Cowshed spas worldwide – and it shows. A spa-worthy treatment for your tootsies. My favourite.
