Everyuth Foot Scrub Review

Everyuth has made quite a few new launches recently and the foot scrub is one of them. I had high expectation from it, for I had read rave reviews on it. So, let see if it is really as good. I have been using the Oriflame foot scrub for last two years and according to me it is the best food scrub ever.  I have reviewed it HERE.

The look :  Peach colored granules suspended in transparent orange gel.

The Texture: I would have loved it if it were more gritty , as the granules are too soft to exfoliate. Also, it is a foaming scrub.

The Smell: Fresh and citrusy

My Take: It is a foaming scrub and cleanses well , but it would have been way better if the granules were more rough. I feel the exfoliation effect is not up to the mark. It has fullers earth  in its ingredients, which makes it a very good cleanser and the feet look brighter after its use. I love to use it as a hand and body scrub 🙂 and it works better that way.

If one doesn’t have major issues with their feet, then it can deliver well.  Also, it fits one’s budget 🙂

Else, if the feet are severely dry and cracked, I  suggest to use something more gritty like the Oriflame scrub.

Price: INR 80

Product Score: 3.5/5

DIY: Coffee Body Scrub

I had some unused coffee beans lying on my kitchen shelf and thought of putting it to use by making a body scrub. This scrub works wonders for my skin and makes it smooth and soft. I can vouch for the visible smoothening effect it had on my upper arms. My upper arms had been quite rough and gritty due to over active sebaceous glands and this scrub has reduced the roughness to a great extent.

So let me go ahead with the recipe.

Ingredients:

  1. Whole Coffee Beans
  2. Granulated Sugar
  3. Any Oil like Coconut, Olive, Almond or Sesame . I used Coconut.
  4. A Jar with a lid for storing.
  5. Vanilla Essence (optional)

Procedure:

  1. Take the Coffee beans and grind it in a mixer ensuring that its not finely ground, it needs to be granular.

2. Mix it with equal amount of sugar in the jar, which you would like to store it.

3. Pour Coconut Oil on top and mix it properly.you can also put few drops of vanilla essence to make it smell delicious.

Your DIY scrub it ready!

It does work wonders , but be careful to not apply it to your face, as it could be abrasive. The scrub can be stored in a tight-lid container for up to two months weeks or even more, in a refrigerator. This also works as a good foot scrub as well. A very effective scrub, which is worth a dime. You would stop buying scrubs altogether :). But, one should be careful and make sure they are not allergic to the ingredients.

Oriflame Exfoliating foot Scrub Review

This is the one and only foot scrub which I have used and re-used and have been using. I bought it for the third time. A product which has been my companion since long and I adore it. A regular foot care ought be a part of every woman’s skincare regime. Foot scrubs play an important role in maintaining the over all appearance of our feet, so that they remain forever “Happy Feet”.

Today I shall review the Oriflame foot scrub which I am in love with, it has almonds as one of its ingredients.

The Look: Loads of micro, macro granules embedded in a transparent jelly base. The granules are larger and more abrasive than those of regular facial scrubs.

The Aroma: Has a fresh, minty smell which I like.

My Experience: I use this after a foot bath and scrubbing with a pumice stone. I generally apply it in circular motion all over my feet. A small amount is required which gradually foams with gradual circular and scrubbing becomes an easy affair. Its abrasive yet gentle, due the smooth movement enabled by the foaming of the gel. Then I let it dry for about five minutes and the scrub it again and wash of with water. After the whole process, the feet appears smooth and soft, with gradual usage the tan of the feet gradually disappear. This is from my experience :). I had sandal marks on my feet, that it the areas of the feet which are covered were lighter than the exposed parts, which gradually went off with my weekly one foot procedure.

Price: INR 160 on offer.

Summary: Worth trying! It is gentle yet abrasive and gradually improves the look of the feet. Its not drying or harsh on skin.

Product Score: 4/5
