There’s nothing better than a spa treatment – you finally get the chance to sit back and relax while someone takes care of you and sends you into a state of pure bliss. But while you can’t go wrong with a spa day, they often come with a hefty price tag and require you to step away from the normal hustle and bustle of life. If only there was a way to bring the spa treatment to your home…
Foot spas are amazing things. They allow you to get a full foot massage treatment, whenever you like, in the comfort of your own home! Within this guide, we will be taking you through the best foot spas around, helping you to get the pamper session you deserve.

If a high-tech modern-looking foot spa massager is what you’re after, then we can’t recommend the Acevivi Foot Spa Massager enough.
Let’s start with the mechanisms. You might feel a bit overwhelmed when you first come into contact with this product – it has a lot going on! From maize rollers that massage the soles of your feet to a Tai Chi rotating wheel which gives you a massage like no other, you’re certainly in for a treat. Of course, the greatness doesn’t stop there, and you can even benefit from red light treatment which promotes the regeneration of dead skin cells and a pedicure stone which exfoliates your feet to leave them silky smooth. And, like all high-quality foot spa massagers, this product from Acevive also has two intense bubble jet holes for a truly relaxing experience.
Now for the exterior, which effortlessly matches the fantastic performance of the interior. Firstly, this foot spa has wheels, making it extremely easy to change your spa setting whenever you feel like it. To accompany this, the foot spa has an invisible portable handle to make the transportation even smoother. Combine this with a dust proof full cover and automatic drain and there really will be no room for complaints! For more products like this, check out our foot warmer guide as well.

For those who would prefer to use a dainty pedicure spa that doesn’t look like it will take off any second, we highly recommend taking a look at the Conair Foot Spa/Pedicure Spa. This nifty little spa has toe-touch control that allows you to activate heating features and relaxing bubbles, cutting out any awkward movements that would usually have to be made.
While the toe-touch control is our favourite feature, the Conair Foot Spa/Pedicure Spa still has so much more to offer. It comes with three pedicure attachments that allow you to experience either an arch massage, all-purpose massage or soft touch massage. The choice is yours.
Although this pedicure spa may look smaller than others listed in this guide, it is still just as effective at ensuring a safe experience. It has a translucent splash guard (which also doubles up as a foot rest) and a maximum fill line to ensure that spillages never occur. If this wasn’t enough, you can take comfort in knowing that the nonslip feet will be there to prevent any accidents from happening. Safety is key!

We’re keeping with the simplistic theme with this next foot massage spa which comes from no other than well-known beauty brand Revlon. This sleek spa has striking green details which complement the rest of the white exterior perfectly to create a modern yet ‘no-fuss’ look.
Our favourite feature of this foot spa is the toe-touch feature which allows you to turn the features on and off without pulling a muscle or creating a mess. In terms of the actual massaging experience, the Revlon Bubbling Toe Touch Foot Spa has a contoured base to provide your heels and arches with extra support when in use. This is particularly ideal for those who have frequent aches and pains in their feet and can’t stay in a certain position for too long.
The heating device on this foot massage spa is simple yet effective; it works through smart heat technology which cleverly keeps the water warm for the whole duration of your treatment.
There’s no need for any fancy gadgets if simplicity is what you’re after and just one foot massage with this spa will be enough to confirm that.
Small design makes this easy to move around

If you want to go the extra mile with your heated foot spa, then the LiveFine Foot Spa with aqua jets (yes – jets!) is a great product to opt for. This 5-in-1 foot spa not only heats up, but it also helps to stimulate and sooth your feet, giving them the much needed break they deserve after working so tirelessly.
Proudly claiming to be ‘the only foot spa with real jets’, you’re in for an experience like no other with the LiveFine Foot Spa. Simply use the adjustable knobs to set your desired airflow and kick back as the relaxing streams ease those achy feet. If that’s not enough, you can treat your jacuzzi-like experience to a pumice stone or massage roller treatment. This will be sure to keep your feet smooth and your arches soothed! You’ll also find that the small nodes located on the base of the spa will keep your pressure points stimulated from start to finish.
Even the appearance of this foot spa is like a mini jacuzzi. The white tub is oh-so easy to clean and the light blue rim gives it all the personality it needs (and you’re in luck – it also doubles up as a splashguard). You’ll find the control dials situated at the tip of the spa, allowing you to tweak airflow, heat and jets. It’s safe to say you’re in for a fully immersive experience with the LiveFine Foot Spa!

Next up, we have another incredible foot bath made by the team over at Acevivi. This foot spa and massager is quite similar to the previous Acevivi product mentioned in this guide, but this version has a few different features that will certainly appeal to those who get frequent massages.
Our favourite feature on Acevivi Foot Spa Bath Massager is the rolling foot massager which has been specially designed to provide a more comfortable, yet effective, massage treatment. We particularly love that the nodes vary between being ‘up and down’, allowing your feet to relax without taking too much pressure.
The Tai Chi rotating wheel is another fantastic feature on this foot spa which we can’t get enough of. It works on your toes and heels, giving you a unique massage experience that no other tool would be able to do. If you’re a fan of Tai Chi or love experimenting with new massages, then this tool will soon become your best friend.
If you like to keep up with aesthetics in your home then this foot spa is the one for you. The exterior consists of an easy-to-clean white and brown shell – but if you ask us, it almost looks rose gold. Classy!
The colours of this foot spa are very appealing and will suit all interiors
Multi-massage nodules will target pressure points and treat any kind of foot problem
The heater has multi-insulation and double overheating protection
The tub is quite big and may be heavy too carry
Bubbles may not provide enough pressure
White and brown isn’t everyone’s favourite colour scheme!
2 exfoliating loofahs
2 bubble jets
4 shiatsu rollers
If you’re all about exfoliating then we’ve got a treat for you with this next foot bath massager. The Belmint Home Foot Spa Bath Massager doesn’t do things in halves – in fact, it does things in doubles! Let us explain…
When you first look at the spa, you’ll probably immediately be drawn to the two white discs situated at the front. These white discs are loofah discs. Simply rub your feet on them to exfoliate any dead skin cells to leave your feet feeling baby soft.
It doesn’t stop there. When you enter your feet into the tub, you will be greeted by two wheel rollers and two water jets for the true spa experience. You might even notice a slight aroma wafting around, but don’t worry, that’s just from the super cool salt and herb diffuser. That’s certainly a feature we haven’t found in many other epic foot spas!
The control settings on the Belmint Home Foot Spa Bath Massager allow you to choose between three different settings, exploring the warmth, bubbles and infrared light features. You can chop and choose between each setting or fall in love with your favourite. It’s up to you.
The two exfoliating loofahs allow you to treat both feet at the same time
Control settings are varied, making them perfect for even the fussiest of people
The infrared light acts as a disinfectant, keeping germs away
Bubbles only hit your heels

3 roller massage modes
Oxygen bubble massager
Controllable heating (up to 114°F)
We’re finishing this guide just as strong as we started – this time with a home foot spa which goes by the name of the Foot Cure Foot Spa Massager Basin. You may have noticed that this home foot spa looks slightly more masculine than the rest, and while no foot spa is assigned to one gender, we’re sure there are many men who would only like to use one if it was blue and black. If this is you, it’s your lucky day…
This foot spa has not one, not two, but three automatic roller massage modes; allowing you to find the most perfect setting for the treatment you’re after. And, if you like your foot spas hot, then you’ll be pleased to know that this product can reach up to 114°F – which is pretty darn toasty!
As well as different roller massage modes, this foot spa also has a unique oxygen bubble massage feature which will put you into a state of relaxation like no other. Combine this with the soothing water jets and temperature control and you’ll soon be waving goodbye to sore and achy feet.
The Foot Cure Foot Spa Massager Basin has been specially designed for those with foot problems like tired feet, calluses and plantar fasciitis. If you suffer from any of these problems and have been looking for a way to restore some comfort back in your life – then this is the spa for you! We know you’re going to love it.
Controllable heating means that you’ll never find the water too hot nor too cold
3 different massage modes allow you to find the best treatment possible
Slightly more masculine design, meaning men never have to feel like they can’t enjoy a spa!

Foot Spa Buying Guide And FAQ
Features To Look For In Foot Spa
We want you to get the best experience possible out of your foot bath spa, which is why we’ve put together the top five features to look out for when investing in one. These features can be customisable depending on the type of treatment you’re after, but as a general rule of thumb, the following should be a necessity.
Attachments - If you want the full experience that a high-quality foot spa has to offer, then it’s worth checking out the attachments which come with it. Most of the time, a foot spa will come with a roller massager and pumice stone, allowing you to get a great massage and soft feet at the same time. Some foot spas will even go above and beyond expectations and come with a whole range of attachments that target different areas of the feet and perform different types of massages.
When it comes to looking for attachments, remember that if it doesn’t appeal to you, it will probably be a money waster. Having a bit of knowledge regarding the type of experience you want will help you out here.
Ease Of Cleaning - Although not the most fun task, it’s always wise to give your foot spa a clean before and after use. This is particularly the case if you use any scents or massaging products. A build-up of dirt or murky water will not only ruin the appearance of your foot spa, but may also damage its performance. When treated correctly, foot spas should last for many years.
Just one look at a foot spa will be enough to tell you whether it’s easy to clean or not. If the spa is mainly made of plastic and has no hidden nooks that may gather water and dirt, you’re good to go. Simply wipe with a warm cloth to clean.
Heat - Heat is an important feature to look out for when choosing your foot spa – do you prefer hot, tepid or cold temperatures? While most top-quality foot spas will have heat adjustment settings, it’s still important to make sure that it serves a temperature that you will enjoy. And, if the spa doesn’t have controllable settings, it’s all the more important to research into the heating unit used to ensure that it will keep the water warm for the whole duration of your treatment.
Massagers - If you want more than just a warm water experience, then it is recommended to look for a foot spa and massager. The majority of massaging foot spas will have amazing massage rollers located at the base, which work by rolling on the soles of your feet for a truly relaxing - and maybe slightly ticklish - experience. The massaging spas with a larger price tag will probably have automated rollers which do the job for you, meaning you can truly switch off and enjoy the luxury.
Vibration - Speaking of massages, the level of vibration is another feature which many people look for in their foot spa. It’s pretty self-explanatory, but many foot spas have bubbling vibrations which add to the sensory experience (think of a massaging chair, but for your feet!). These vibrating bubbles aren’t for everyone, but the majority of spas will allow you to control whether to have them on or not so it’s a great addition to have.
