“ Brand: Babyliss / Suitable for: Foot / What it does: destresses / Type: Foot Spa „
If you spend all day on your feet then this is the product for you! After a long day theres nothing I love more than to just come home and unwind with this. It is so relaxing and really makes my feet feel re-energized. The combination of heat and massage is amazing and not only relaxes my feet but also my mind. It is so easy to use, and the best thing is that if your really busy you can do something whilst your using this, like watch TV, go on the computer, read a book or report, etc. It can also be stored very easily in a cupboard or under a bed or something so it is out of the way for when you dont need it, yet easy to get to when you do. I love the massaging options as they really do massage the soles of my feet so well! Having recieved this as a birthday present I was at first sceptical but I am not a converter, and have also managed to convert my family as well, who love it just as much as I do! The only downside is that sometimes the water tends to splash out so just make sure you put a towel or cloth under and around the foot spa before use.
There is nothing nicer than giving your feet a bit of TLC after a long day of walking and after taking my daughter to the cinema with my husband last week my feet were definately aching as my husband suggested the 6 mile all round walk would be "nice" - note to self, never listen to husband.
When I got home, my feet were burning. You know that awful "Oh God, I will never be able to walk again" burn and ache? So I sent my husband off to the cupboard to dig out my beloved Babylis Heat & Massage foot spa. I more than needed it!
It is a nice looking spa made of blue and white plastic with the Babyliss logo on the top and the settings dial ust underneath it. It has rubber feet on the bottom to prevent it from slipping on surfaces when in use.
To use the foot spa you simply fill it with water and then plug it in where you want to use it. I always use mine when I am sitting on the sofa in front of the TV. The spa doesn't make alot of noise when it is on. It has 3 different settings which are massage, bubbles (no massage) and both together.
Placing you feet into the spa, you mave to make sure they are either side of the little white bit in the middle. On the base there is the massaging nodules which when activated vibrate and create a massaging feel on the base of your feet. This feels amazing and very relaxing though I don't use this setting for long as it makes my feet feel tingly after a while and makes me feel a bit sick, LOL.
I sometimes add some bath salts or something which bubbles up when I use the spa to create a nice smell and make my feet feel refreshed and clean. The spa does make your feet feel lots better if you have been walking on them all day. It soothes them and takes away some of the aching though it is only temporary - the aching does return!
It is very easy to clean, simply a case of just rinsing it out.
This is a good little spa. I paid £15 for it a couple of years back and it still works well. I would definately recommend one of these foot spas. They are lovely for a bit of pampering and to soothe achey feet.
My sister bought this foot spa for me several years ago as a Xmas present.
It is quite light and can be easily carried around. The only thing is that it is quite bulky once out of the box, and I had difficulty finding a place to keep it. You cant keep it in the bathroom as it has an electric plug, so you cant keep it where theres a lot of moisture.
When you have filled it with water, you plug it in, and put your feet it. You have to rest your feet on the shapes on the bottom. There are lots of little nodules and they vibrate, creating a massage effect. You can then change the setting to either massage, bubbles or both together.
I only use it for about 10 mins and then the vibrating bits get a bit too much and make your feet feel very odd and walking is a bit weird afterwards. The bubbles are nice and relaxing, but the whole experience makes your feet quite wrinkly.
For £15 its not going to be the best foot massager in the world but its quite nice for 10 mins. It would be better if you could use it in the bathroom as part of your beauty routine, as its quite odd washing your feet in your bedroom.
Make sure you have clean feet, otherwise you could block up the jets as they re-circulate the water.
