If you’re someone who loves to relax with a warm bath at the end of the day, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a way that you can capture that feeling without waiting for a whole tub to fill up.

A foot spa can be just as relaxing as a bath, and offers a quick way to rejuvenate tired feet and ankles. Electric versions offer soothing bubbles, massaging rollers, and customizable temperature settings, transforming any room in your home into a tranquil spa experience.

One top-rated foot bath from Amazon has made its way onto the site’s list of Movers and Shakers this week, with sales spiking as shoppers look to cozy up at home.

The details

The MaxKare Foot Spa/Bath Massager is currently Amazon’s best-selling foot bath, and with a 4.3 star rating from more than 6,600 customer ratings, it’s a top choice for gifting this holiday season, too.

Thanks to its plug and set design, this foot bath quickly heats up, and lets you choose your preferred temperature between 95°F and 118°F. In addition to settings for bubbles and massaging vibrations, it also features 16 manual rollers along the bed of the basin to deeply massage the tissues on the soles of the feet.

Normally retailing for $82, this foot bath is now on sale for $73, plus and added coupon of $5 that brings the total down to $68.

Why shoppers love it

As more of us find ourselves indoors or without access to routine spa services, at-home devices have surged in popularity as a way to fill in for them.

“This is my life saver during this isolation period. All spas are closed and this foot bath gives me a sense of relaxation at home,” shared one reviewer. “I felt like I was in the spa. The bubbles are nice and enjoyable [and] the foot bath really helps with circulation and releasing tension in my pregnant feet.”

“My job requires a lot of walking in high heels and I've been looking for a product to relax my feet after work,” added another. “This foot bath massager is great to use after work or after the gym, easy to use with the panel it has in front. It has bubbles and they accelerate the water heating. I suppose this is an excellent winter gift!”

Some shoppers were unimpressed that the rollers are not mechanical, and instead must be used as manual massagers by rolling your feet back and forth. At an affordable price point, though, this foot bath offers an easy way to relax and unwind at home.

“Works great as a foot soak, temperature is good and heat is maintained, but I find the 'bubbles' are not very powerful and the rolling foot massagers uncomfortable and awkward,” reads one review.

The verdict

While it’s not a replacement for a foot massage from a trained professional, the MaxKare Foot Spa/Bath Massager is still a great way to create a relaxing atmosphere for yourself. At only $68, it’s also an affordable way to get the same spa-inspired feel without ever leaving home.

We recommend pairing it with a good book or a movie, and your favourite cocktail of choice for a night of pampering.
