Instant Cool Testimonials from

Cool Spray

Got this for my husband, he’s in work boots all day and into the evening and his feet get really bad. So we sprayed some on before he went to work. He said his feet felt good all day. When he came home he took his boots off and his feet weren’t all red and scaly, he was amazed. He’s been using it ever since and his feet look so much better. And he liked how it cooled his feet and didn’t feel that burn, like they usually were. So I would give it an A+.

Perfect size

I always wear sneakers or walking shoes so my toes and feet can feel itchy after a long day or exercising. These wipes are great in size, it is just enough for quick relief where I need it versus a spray which can get everywhere if not done right.

It gives relief

This spray is easy to use and it gives relief right away. It doesn’t leave your foot feeling sticky or leave unwanted residue. I find it helps a lot with the itching and burning. I like that it doesn’t dry my skin out either I can use this spray daily. It has a pleasant powder scent and doesn’t smell bad.

Instant cool!

Dr. Scholl’s Instant Cool is so relieving after just one spray. It really does feel cool and relieved the itching and burning from athletes foot. It feels so much better than a cream and works fast. I love that it isn’t messy like a cream and doesn’t leave a powdery residue in socks. Since it’s a spray it’s more convenient to carry and apply as needed to work or the gym. I recommend Dr. Scholl’s to anyone who needs relief from athletes foot and doesn’t want a messy cream.

Great Product That’s Easy to Use!

I had a chance to use these pads recently after a walkathon where I got a severe case of athletes foot and they proved themselves from the get-go. They are easy to use, cleaner than the spray with no over spray or residue, and the menthol is very cooling that lasts longer then other like products. I even think it helped my athlete’s foot breakout clear up quicker then usual. It’s nice to have disposable pads that make application easy that can reach all areas as sprays miss some parts and creams require using bare finger to get into the crevices of your feet. These are a pleasure on my feet and will be taking to Europe soon to help refresh after daily walking and prevent further breakouts. Dr, Scholl’s has created another great product.

Dr. Scholl’s Cool Athlete’s Foot Wipes

My husband and I love to exercise and, to say the least sometimes we suffer from Athlete’s feet and, burning and itching sensations from overdoing it. As soon as we received these Dr. Scholl’s wipes both my husband and I applied them to our feet. We were so thrilled that they were so easy to apply and, had a instant cooling feeling with a nice blend of menthol. We are both so pleased with these Dr. Scholl’s wipes and, recommend them to anyone that encounters the same issues. We will definitely keep them handy. They are awesome!


This is great for runners like myself, It works so fast to help cool and calm my feet. It is easy to apply and the effects last a long time, the spray is easy to travel with and I keep it in my gym bag or in the car.
