What experts liked
Bubbles and "waterfall" action gently massage your feet. Blue lights at the bottom of the unit are relaxing to look at. Pumice stone, foot scrubber, and massager provide further pampering.
- BestReviews
It is moderate, and it gives those individuals who can’t bear the cost of the costly spa involvement with the top of the line outlets, by bringing that experience directly inside their homes.
- Best Health N Care
The flowing waterfall ensures the top of your feet are deeply massaged for the ultimate relaxation while blue LED lights on each side create the perfect ambience.
- Shortcut Gates
Conair uses high-quality, durable plastic construction to make this foot spa durable. It’s meant to last for many uses over time, regardless of how frequently those sessions occur.
- Significant Other Broadway
Most foot massagers provide only a single function of massage. But the Conair Foot Spa gives you an exceptional pedicure service at home. You can use one of the three detachable heads by placing it in the middle of the unit.
- Feet Remedies
There are manually-powered rollers, a two-speed waterfall to create bubbles and a vibrating function – and if you need entertainment (of a sort) there are blue LED lights that operate when the spa does.
- Groom and Style
The heat setting ensures the water remains at a comfortable temperature. For ease of use, the controls are located toward the front of the machine and are designed to work easily with your toes, negating the need to bend down and operate the controls with your fingers.

The massager includes three toe-touch controls that make it easy to operate. Whats more is a blue LED light on each side to help ensure a relaxing setting.

Conair has created a fantastic waterfall foot spa that will treat you like the royalty you are. The three attachments combined with the foot rollers and loofah discs will give your feet the love they need to be their very best.
- Nail Art Gear
It provides a good foot massage whether you require it every day or just once a week, and with the Toetouch buttons, then you can operate it completely hands.
- Tech Zimo

Unlike the other massagers, this massager does not offer motorized rollers but you can still experience better vibration that calms your sore feet.

There are also 3 attachments: a scrub brush, pumice stone, and a soft-touch massager to make your feet feel amazing.
- Globo Turf
The controls are simple and meant to be done using your toes before starting the massage. This feet soaker offers hot massages, and the waterfall feature can be turned on or off, depending on preference, to massage the top of the feet. It also comes with a leg rest for relaxation.

Pumice stone: great to remove calluses from your heels if you have: soaking your feet will get the calluses softer and then scrubbing your feet on the pumice stone will remove them. Remember not to scratch too hard and do not use it if you have very sensitive feet or suffer from neuropathy. Though, definitely the most useful extra head.
- All About Foot Care
It is foot spacious in that it has the capacity to fit in up to a size 14-foot size. This allows its users to sit comfortably without straining at all.
- Relax Those Feet
The machine has a durable motor that runs several features at a time. The user can have the spa anytime and anywhere with this portable machine. The machine is economical, and anyone can afford it.

The Blue LEDs look quite cool in the dark and help to relax. The flowing waterfall massages the top of feet quite well too.

To add pizzazz to the ambience, there’s a blue LED light integrated on either side of the unit’s base. Adding to the rejuvenating feeling is the ultimate waterfall function of this foot bath.
- Off Brick
For the price range, this is a good, affordable water massage machine especially for people who enjoy a good soak.

What experts didn't like
While the unit will maintain water warmth, it won't heat up your water, so you'll need to fill the basin with hot water to start with.
- BestReviews
When it is loaded up with water, it will in general turn out to be substantial making it difficult to move around.
- Best Health N Care
People with large feet may find it difficult to move and use the massage rolling heads.
- Feet Remedies
There are sometimes situations that people have faced is that the water does not get heated up as claimed.
- Easy Home

A con is that it is too loud for some, but some customers have mentioned they actually enjoy the humming sound and find it relaxing, and those who don’t can always play some music to cover it.
- Basenji Mom's Place

The heat can’t be dissociated from the bubbles and it won’t keep the water warm for long sessions (20+minutes), however, we would not recommend extended heated foot bath sessions anyway.
- All About Foot Care
With the heat, light and bubble setting the machine has, it is quite noisy. Using it at night when people are a sleep is not an option. The numerous vibrating effects also make this machine noisy.
- Relax Those Feet
Sometimes it becomes noisy when all modes are working. The vibrations also create noise.
- Review Bites

This foot massager offers higher comfort to the user and it is designed to compact to increase all the performance and efficiency of the users.
- Massager Land
Doesn’t have a good heater, might need to add your own warm water.
- Cushy Spa
Does not heat water

Conair Waterfall Foot Spa is a bit too loud according to some users and doesn’t really have the ability to heat cold water.
- Health Best Reviews
January 12, 2018 | Full review
You have to heat the water pre-hand
- Off Brick
This also brings up the noise problem. If the noise bothers you, keeping them all in one button off (the bubbles/heat/light) will help keep noise to a minimum.

From The Manufacturer

Pamper your feet with a rejuvenating massage and spa experience at home! The Conair Active Life Waterfall Foot Spa comforts your feet in warm relaxation. Specially designed for active lifestyles, the flowing waterfall gently massages the top of the feet while the massaging foot rollers soothe the soles. Exfoliating loofah disks help soften skin and provide a rejuvenating massage, while LED lights showcase massage bubble action with heat to ensure water stays warm. With this foot bath tub, it’s easy to take good care of one of the hardest working parts of your body! Most of us are on our feet a lot! That’s a lot of stress and strain on a daily basis. Compound that with activity and how much love do you give your feet? With each foot’s 26 bones, 20-plus muscles and over 100 ligaments, it’s no wonder that happy feet can affect your overall well-being. The toe-touch push buttons on this pedicure foot spa make it easy to control bubbles, waterfall feature and temperature for a customized experience every time. This foot massager includes 3 attachments: a pumice stone to gently exfoliate skin for smooth feet, a scrub brush to gently clean feet and a soft-touch massager to relax achy, sore feet. Whether you want to soak in cool, warm or hot water, this spa is especially designed to maintain the temperature you choose. Water jets propel water over and around your foot, providing a massaging effect that helps your muscles relax. The massaging foot spa also has a “waterfall” feature which gently pours water over the top of your feet for utter relaxation. With the Conair Active Life Waterfall Foot Spa with Lights and Bubbles, your feet will always be pampered and revitalized. This footbath will not keep the water warm; you must put warm water into the footbath and expect it to cool off after around 10 minutes. We do not say anywhere on the detail page that it will hear and/or keep water warm. Keep the water at 100 to 118 degrees fahrenheit to avoid burning your skin.

An Overview On Foot Spas

A foot spa might seem like a luxurious indulgence, but it can actually be a thoughtful, health-improving gift for yourself or someone you care about. Foot spas allow you to soak, heat and massage your feet, which offers numerous benefits to not only the health of your tootsies but also your overall physical and emotional wellbeing.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Most foot spas provide some form of massage and reflexology, which is the application of pressure to specific points on the feet (or hands). In theory, reflexology used on these points corresponds with certain organs and systems within the body, delivering relaxation and healing to those places.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Massaging your feet in a foot spa that targets those reflex points could help reduce pain in other areas, such as a pounding migraine or lower backache. It could uplift your mood, helping to ward off mild depression. And of course, it feels amazing to boot.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Soaking and massaging your feet is especially important if you have a largely sedentary lifestyle, as it improves blood flow. If you are on your feet all day, a warm, bubble foot soak is an amazing way to relax and rejuvenate tired, aching, swollen feet and ankles.

Resting your feet in a heated spa shortly before bedtime could help you fall asleep more quickly and enjoy an improved night’s rest.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Many foot spas also offer infrared technology, which is another health-boosting feature. Infrared therapy is used in many applications and provides numerous health benefits, such as the following:

  • Infrared light increases the body’s production of nitric oxide, which is essential to improving blood circulation. In turn, this promotes improved cardiovascular health as well as reduced pain and decreased inflammation.
  • Infrared therapy fosters the growth and repair of tissue and muscle cells as it augments the action of the mitochondria.
  • It can aid in the reduction of muscle tension, the promotion of relaxation and the regulation of blood pressure.
Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Since foot spas are a safe, natural, non-invasive, painless treatment, there are no negative side effects to worry about, either.

DWYM Fun Fact

An ancient treatise titled The Huangdi Neijing or The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine was believed to have been written in approximately 2600 BC by the legendary Chinese emperor Huang Ti. The writing includes an entire chapter called “Examining Foot Method,” which is perhaps the earliest printed discussion related to reflexology.

During the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 220 AD), this practice was systemized. Chinese physician Hua Tuo used the phrase “Tao of the Foot Center” in his text, Hua Tuo Mi Ji.

The practice of reflexology continued to flourish during the Tang Dynasty (618 to 907 AD). During this time, the practice also became popular in Japan.

It is also believed that famed merchant, explorer and writer Marco Polo translated a Chinese massage book into Italian in the 1300s, introducing reflexology to Europe.

The Foot Spa Buying Guide

  • Be sure to choose a foot spa that is easy to clean and maintain. You should empty and dry the tub after every use, as leaving water or moisture in the spa could lead to mold, bacteria or other hazardous issues. Cleaning the spa with mild soap such as dish soap and warm water after each use is advised. You might wish to follow up with disinfectant as well, particularly if you share the foot spa with family members. 
  • Consider where you will store and use your foot spa. Make sure that it is portable, especially if you plan to fill it in one room and carry or roll it to another. The size should be roomy enough for you to spread out your toes and relax, but not so massive that it is difficult for you to fill, move or put away when you’re finished. 
  • A heating option might seem like an added luxury, but don’t skimp on this feature. Even if you pour nice, warm water into the foot spa, it could become uncomfortably tepid while you soak your feet. You will come to appreciate a foot spa that heats and maintains a balmy temperature throughout your treatment.
  • Some spas include a bubbling feature. The oxygenated water not only provides even more soothing enjoyment, but the bubbles can also help improve your body’s circulation and might even boost your metabolism.
  • Nubby rollers or raised, textured areas in a foot spa can make for an amazing DIY foot massage experience. However, if your tootsies are particularly ticklish or sensitive, it might prove to be too much. If you’re not sure, consider a foot spa that has removable massage attachments just in case.
  • Consider foot spas with other optional attachments if they would be useful to you. For instance, the Ivation Foot Spa Massager includes four accessories, such as a pumice stone and a brush attachment. If you are a fan of at-home pedicure treatments, these extras could make this the ideal choice for you.
  • After enjoying a calming evening soak, pat your feet dry (don’t forget to dry between your toes!) and follow up with lotion. Slip into a pair of soft socks and go to bed to enjoy softer feet in the morning.
