I get horribly tanned regardless of whether its summer, monsoons or winters and this year was no different. I usually tend to ignore my feet but 2months earlier when I’d gone to a friends engagement and was putting on my new sandals, I realised that the fair strip of skin caused by the strap my usual sandals were too obvious against the rest of my skin. Additionally my heels had become so rough and black despite my regular washing. Very embarrassing to say the least.
So once I happened to mention my predicament to A and she suggested Scholl products. This happened to be around the time of the Healthkart contest on Wiseshe and by the time the contest finished and we got our discount coupons, I’d browsed and decided that this would be a good buy to try Thanks A for recommending this…I don’t think I’ll look back now…
About Scholl Rough Skin Remover, Directions & Ingredients
Instantly removes rough, hard skin
- Activates cell renewal
- Reveals soft, smooth skin
- Quantity: 75ml
- Price: 150 INR
Packaging –This comes in a squeezy tube form; so double Yey for the hygienic and travel friendly packaging.. It has a flip top lid which is quite sturdy and wont clip off easily.
- Texture –The scrub is extremely thick and is super grainy. If you have super sensi skin this may seem abrasive, but I don’t feel it will cause any undue harm. This scrub has more scrub particles than cream unlike most scrubs which focus more on moisturizing than scrubbing off dead skin. Hence, this product obviously means serious business
- Fragrance – The scent is extremely pleasant and will not irritate the most sensitive of noses also. I cannot quite place it but to me it even smells of thick, moisturizing cream…i know I’m horrible at describing scents but this is the best way I would put the point across
- Usage –I have used this in 3 ways: As prescribed, sometimes I use this on dry skin directly and then rinse. At times, I just wet my feet and use this scrub and then rinse. Other times, I first soak my feet in warm water for a while to soften the skin and the roughness and then proceed to use this scrub after cleansing.
Both methods work well but the soak n scrub is more effective and a better option if you have the time since it helps get rid of the roughness sooner. Basically 3 repetitions of the ‘dry n scrub’ or 2 repetitions of the ‘wet n scrub’ routine is equal to 1 ‘soak n scrub’ routine.
My experience with Scholl Rough Skin Remover:
First off, I should mention that I absolutely love this scrub. My feet had gotten horribly tanned and the fair chappal strip was irking at me ever since I saw it.
The first time I used this was as prescribed. I used it on dry skin…How it works is that once you apply the scrub and start rubbing it in in circular movements, the entire thing sort of powders and falls to the ground..Initially I thought I was doing something wrong but continued to scrub and once I rinsed it off I was pleasantly surprised at how much smoother my heels had become and that a lot of my tan had vanished. I won’t exaggerate and say that one use was sufficient and that my feet looked totally fair and crack free like the Ads claim.. But yes, this was impressive for the first attempt.
My 2nd attempt was when I used this just prior to taking a bath. I did this because the entire process does get messy when you scrub
and the dead skin and scrub particles start falling down. Plus I wanted to try this on wet skin since I’d found it a tad bit abrasive. When I used it this way I felt it worked better and I could scrub for a longer period thanks to the element of moisture involved. Additionally, it didn’t feel as abrasive as before and I felt tan tan had dissipated much more than before. And oh yes! The most impt point…I found it easier to clean the tub too!
Then I thought why not soak my feet and then use this. So one weekend when I had some time on my hands, I soaked my feet in a bucket of warm water, brushed them clean and then used this scrub. To my wonder my heels got so well moisturized and smooth. The tan had also dissipated but not totally so (that would be so illogical no matter hoe much I hoped it would miraculously happen )
This has become my wonder product in a very short while. Thanks to this, my feet are on their way to a healthy recovery!
