Liz Earle Foot Scrub

It has been raining like crazy here in Kolkata and with my University days over, I am mostly home. A few days back I went out and having done the things I was supposed to, i met a friend of mine. It did not  rain in the morning and I was convinced it won't rain that day. But the very moment I stepped out in the street and walked into the open, it started raining like crazy. It was as if the rain was waiting for me to walk out. My friend needed  a hair cut and she was determined to get her hair done from a salon she did not know where exactly it was. So, I carried all my books and bags and umbrella. But the streets became waterlogged immediately and we had no other option but to step into the dirty (would be an understatement) water. When I came back home I litt wanted to bathe which I did. But that wasn't sufficient. So, I pulled this Liz Earle Foot Scrub tube out and first gave myself a foot soak and then scrubbed my foot totally clean.


The first time I had used the Liz Earle Foot Scrub, it worked good too. But since I am genetically blessed with hands and feet that do not easily grow  callouses and are quite low mentainence, I wasn't sure if this worked well. but in the monsoons I am using the hard plastic-ish rubberish kittos , my toe joints had darkened a bit. I thought using Liz Earle Foot Scrub on these should let me understand if this really works and this is my review.

Price and Quantity:   £ 10.45 for 100 ml
What the company claims?

Direction:
 



 ( from company website)
This hard-working scrub gently exfoliates hard, rough skin on heels and soles, leaving feet ultra-soft and buffed to perfection.
Massage daily onto damp skin, concentrating on dry areas such as heels, toes and balls of your feet.

Naturally active ingredients include natural pumice to remove dead skin cells, softening avocado and wheatgerm oils rich in vitamin E, and the invigorating aromas of peppermint and rosemary essential oils.

 Composition:

 What I think of this?
1) It smells good. Just like the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. It smells very mild which again dissipates in a few minutes. the scent in itself is very refreshing and herbal.
2) The base is creamy. So, it would further soften your hard skin which is crucial before buffing.
3) The granules are quite dense and not sparse. So the scrubbing action is really good.
4) The granules are coarse making the scrub quite perfect for feet. It also has pumice granules, so much the better for scrubbing.
5) The texture is thick yet easy to spread making it perfect to spread on the feet and give them a good scrubbing without having all of it sticking to your hands while scrubbing.
6) It really softened my feet and cleared the dark skin on my toes. So, the scrub is really effective.
7) The tube is package is hygienic although it's a little difficult to take the product out.
8) The tube is quite sturdy and an be carried around while travelling.
9) Since it is quite effective, I think while traveling, although I won't get  foot soak I can get a quick scrub.



What I do not like about this?
1) The price. Its too pricey.
2) It's available online only (for us at least).  So, including the shipping price the total cost is too much.

otherwise I find no cons
Verdict: This is a real good foot scrub although on a pricier side:
Do I recommend?
I am not a mani-pedi person .  Occasionally Pond's cold cream and my regular loofah does the job nicely ( since I have no major issues).  If you are like me, I won;t suggest using this.
But if you really have callouses or dark feet due to shoe bites, this might be your HG if you follow it up with  foot soak


At last, since I don't post my complete photo take a look at my hands or eyes or lips and in this case my foot ( and not feet).
The image was taken before moisturizing my feet and I was wearing tight strapped sandals which left the temporary watermark.
Clicking my own foot can be this tricky I never knew before. I would do some foot modelling for myself to do it right I think


So what do you do about your feet? Any DYI tips? Have you used this Liz earle Foot Scrub? What do you think of it?


The product was sent to me by the company/PR for consideration which has not affected my review.
