First of all, I would like to thank all you lovely people for giving me such a warm welcome on IMBB. Your kind words have encouraged me to write more. My second review is about a hand and foot care kit from VLCC.
Talking about this kit, I bought it, I used it, then I got too bored to do it myself; so I neglected it. I got it done at a salon, I came home dissatisfied and started using it again 😛 I started to get bored again, but after a recent disastrous manicure session at a local beauty parlor, I came crying back to my kit again. Those experiences has led me to believe, “if you have to get things done right, you just got to do it yourself!!” Enough. Now, with the actual review. 😛
The kit comes with a cleanser, a scrub, a cream, a pack (all 50 g) and a cuticle oil (10 ml). The packaging of all the products is the same and you have to read the name to identify it. The instructions are printed on the box itself. The complete list of ingredients missing; only the key ingredients are mentioned which looks impressive.
Step 1: Pediglow Hand and Foot Cleanser:
I begin with squeezing some cleanser into a small tub of warm water. The cleanser is orangish in color and has the consistency of a shampoo. The fragrance is quite refreshing. It does not foam much and I end up using more product. My hands and feet feel refreshingly clean after the soaking.
Step 2 : Myrrh Cuticle Oil
They have mentioned step 2 as massaging the cuticle oil into the cuticles. They claim it to be a combination of oh-so-many oils (but I doubt that 😛 ) I don’t follow this step as I don’t get the point of applying oil and then scrubbing which is step 3. Anyhow, I like the bottle it comes in and the convenient applicator. I have started using the oil independently at night but it is yet to give any positive results. *waiting*
Step 3: Pediglow Hand and Foot Scrub
It is a regular walnut scrub, nothing extraordinary. The fragrance is similar to the cleanser, mild and refreshing. The granules are fine and work effectively at removing dead skin (or at least I get the feel that it does 😛 )
Step 4 : Cocoa Butter Hand and Foot Cream
This is my favourite product of the lot. It is pale lemon yellow in color with just the right consistency. The buttery soft texture makes massaging your own hands and feet fun.
Step 5 : Orange Anti-Tan Pack
It is a thick cream which needs to be applied evenly as a pack. It claims to remove tan. So far, I haven’t noticed any change and I don’t even expect it to do anything special.
Overall, it is a decent product, nothing extraordinary. You cannot expect miraculous results overnight. It is your maintenance kit which you can use every now and then along with your regular trips to the salon. And yes, it will last long. There is no exact way to tell the quantity left, but as per my judgement, the kit should suffice 10-12 manicure-pedicure sessions. Now, for under 500 bucks, that is not bad at all, is it?
So, what are you waiting for? Go pamper yourself!! 😛 *nails*
