Oooh that sounds nice!!!  I'd love to have the time to put a foot mask on... are they the lavender ones?
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.

@Rupert the bear , Did you catch this article on BBC news today?

Quote
Even verified reviews might not be all they seem. Some consumers fear their personal data might have been used by sellers to gather fake "verified reviews". Known as "brushing", the scam sees sellers obtain people's name and address to send the goods which they did not purchase. On Amazon, this leaves a paper trail showing the goods had been bought on the site and had been delivered.

The seller then uses the individual's details to set up a new account which it uses to post glowing reviews of its products.

Could that be another explanation perhaps?, and could you even check to see if "you" have left a glowing review for any of the products you received? (would that work?  I have no idea!)

Now that an interesting idea, might look into that
