Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Feet Gel Scrub
Hello gorgeous ladies, how are you all?
You all must have planned your New Year parties. What are your plans?
Well I am still in a confused state about what to do, but I hope to do something good.
Leaving behind my confused state let me introduce you all with the today’s review. Today I shall review a hand and feet scrub gel by Votre.
“VOTRE” an Indian based finest cosmetic brand. Pet-project of Trumount Cosmoceuticals; VOTRE is India’s patented Bio-Cosmetic brand that offers 100% botanical, vegan & cruelty free products.
I was really excited to have this scrub, but somehow my excitement did not stood by as it is and got a little low.
To know why, Read on the review:
About Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Feet Gel Scrub:
This SPA rich hand & foot scrub is a tantalizing exfoliator enriched with oils & almond scrub particles which work together to gently dissolve dead cells and reveal perfectly nourished skin.
Ingredients: Aloe barbdensis, Vitis Vinifera, Rosmarius Officinallis, Fragaria, Ananassa, Glycine Soja.
Directions For Use: Apply on the desired area and scrub away gently. Rinse with water.
Price: INR 550
Net Wt: 75 gm
Shelf Life: 30 months
Packaging: The gel scrub comes in a transparent plastic tub with a silver lid which screw opens. There is an aluminium foil sealing to prevent leakage, which needs to be torn to use the product. It has all the necessary details mentioned on the tub.
The packaging seemed really very basic to me with nothing to keep me attracted.
Texture: It is an orange colored gel scrub with thick consistency. The almond granules that it has are very fine and gentle.
Fragrance: I could smell a fragrance of orange peels in it. The fragrance is not very overpowering, mild enough to keep your sensitive nose calm.
My Experience with Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Foot Gel Scrub:
As I already said, I really had some high hopes with this particular gel scrub. I love this scrub to look at, the lovely orangy scrub with those scents is what I like about kit.
The texture was fine, thick enough for a gel scrub but the exfoliating granules that it has actually added to my disappointment.
For my feet and hand I prefer a little abrasive scrubs or rather I should say not very gentle scrubs. This scrub is indeed way too gentle, the moment I spread it on my feet I feel that the gel is getting absorbed in without taking much of a time. Although a little drops of water can help me massage the feet all over again, but what do I do with the super gentle exfoliants. The granules are so very gentle, so much so that I just could not even get any scrubbing feel.
All I did was some massage and added drops of water and did vigorous massage to try getting the exfoliating feel.
After such an experience I was totally prepared that I will have no good results, but so was not the story. It actually removed some dead skin and gave me a cleaner feel. But then just for such a cleaner feel, I would never spend so much money.
I used it for 5 times, twice a week usage and with the usage I actually found smoother and a bit brighter feet but does it make it any special. NO, because with so much of massaging and twice a week usage, the traditional BESAN (Gram Flour) and curd scrub will give equal or even better results.
What I like About Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Foot Gel Scrub:
- 100% botanical
- Cruelty Free
- Lovely orange colored scrub
- Refreshing orange peels’ fragrance
- Thick texture
What I Don’t like About Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Foot Gel Scrub:
- The gel gets very quickly absorbed in the skin, not leaving much scope for exfoliating motions.
- A way too gentle scrubbing granules, could not feel them doing anything.
- Pricey for the results.
- Takes in lot of efforts and product.
The rating could have been better only if it was priced somewhere between INR 150- INR 200, since the level of results that I received were easily attainable with scrubs from this price range. I know I Know, it is 100% botanical but then I can use my kitchen ingredients for a chemical free scrub and same 550 bucks & my efforts too.
Will I recommend: Not at all, take my suggestion rather than spending on this, give traditional grand ma’s scrubs a try.
P.S. : I have nothing bad to do with this brand and the review was absolutely based on my experience. I have seen people raving about this scrub which somehow added more to my disappointment after using it.
Has some one used this and have had a similar experience as mine.
