“ Brand: Avon / Type: Foot Scrub „
I bought 6 different items from Avon's footworks range recently as they were 3 items for £5. Normally this scrub is around the £4 mark.
The tube contains 75ml and is green in colour with a clear lid. The product is described as an 'exfoliating scrub'.
My feet aren't my best feature and often the skin gets really hard on the bottoms particularly around the balls of my feet. This causes them to burn when I walk a long distance or wear certain shoes. I try to use a scrub 3-4 times a week to combat this as I have too little patience for a foot file.
The scrub contains green tea and mint. Most of the foot products I buy contain mint which I like as it tends to soothe my aching tired feet.
You need to use the scrub on dry feet massaging in circular motions paying attention to particularly dry areas. The scrub is a very pale green colour and t has a gel like consistency. You can see the bits of pumice stone in the scrub which is a good sign for me as it means lots of bits to scrub my battered feet. I can't say that this scrub had any scent in particular, I couldn't smell any mint at all.
When I applied this it was packed with little grains and not matter how much I rubbed these didn't disappear this meant I was able to scrub for a good minute or so. I didn't find this scrub as coarse as others that I had used in the Footworks range because of this as I was rubbing it in I wasn't expecting good results. After a minute spent on each foot I rinsed with warm water.
As I was rinsing the scrub off my feet felt revitalised. I patted them dry gently with a towel and as I felt the soles of my feet they were smooth and soft.
I was really pleased with the results from this scrub, regular use over the past 2 weeks has prevented a build up of dry skin on my feet and has also left my feet looking a lot nicer in sandals.
I would recommend this scrub it has a lovely texture, feels nice when applying and leaves my feet feeling fresh and cooled after use.
Excellent value for the money.
I have an awful habit of studying feet during the hot weather especially when they are adorned with a pair of sandals and displaying the most horrendous dry and cracked skin on their heels. I wouldn't dream of wearing sandals unless my feet appeared soft and smooth and I spend a lot of time keeping them in good condition. Dry skin is a nightmare for me, particularly on the underside of my right foot, as surgery a few years ago has resulted in me walking slightly awkward, which results in a build up of hard skin.
I own an Emjoi Micro Pedi, which is one of the best inventions since sliced bread and I use it religiously once a week. However, when flicking through an Avon brochure a short while ago, my eyes were drawn to the Foot Works Beautiful range especially the Green Tea and Mint Exfoliating Scrub. I figured that the product would be beneficial for use during the week, as it would take me minutes to apply whilst enjoying my daily bath or shower.
The 75 ml of scrub is presented in a sturdy plastic tube, which neatly sits on its lid although Avon has chosen to use a screw top variety as opposed to flip top, which would have been much easier to use especially with wet hands. The appearance of the packaging with its combination of calming greens and images of bare foot prints is very appealing to the eye and perfectly mirrors the claimed green tea and mint content.
Whilst the lid was easily unscrewed, I found it a real hindrance, as due to my hands being wet and slippery, I would frequently lose it in the bath water and I had to subsequently fumble around to locate it in amongst the fluffy white bubbles. I work with pea sized amounts with two being sufficient for each foot with the pale lemon scrub being easily dispensed from the tube. It offers the consistency of a gel with its appearance being somewhat clouded and when I begin to apply it over the surface of the underside of my damp foot I am able to witness the exfoliating particles, which I would describe as being similar in size to grains of salt.
The authentic aroma of green tea is simply stunning and extremely refreshing although the mint is barely evident. As I apply a little pressure when working the grains over my skin, the scrub transforms into a very delicate lather, which prevents blobs from falling into the water. The scrub is highly effective at removing dry and rough skin with minimal effort although I wouldn't describe the grains as being harsh. However, the scrub is not tough enough to remove hardened skin, which would initially need to be removed by another method such as an Emjoi Micro Pedi or a Ped Egg.
The scrub is easily rinsed away without leaving any residue with the treated areas feeling soft and smooth. I cannot speak of any lingering aroma, as unfortunately, I am not supple enough to take a sniff of my feet. I am well impressed with the exfoliating scrub, as it enables me to care for my feet and quickly remove any dry and rough skin. In addition to its exfoliating abilities, the scrub contains glycerine and caster oil; both of which offer moisturising properties. However, I favour using a highly intensive foot cream every night before stepping into bed.
When I made my product suggestion to Dooyoo, the scrub was available on the Avon website and I have checked on line for a price only to discover that it is not available in their current campaign. However, as this is a fairly new product I strongly suspect it will be available in the next brochure especially as three Foot Works Beautiful products were available in the previous brochure for just £5, which represents excellent value for money. If you are interested in purchasing and cannot wait for the next Avon brochure, I would advise that there are various websites selling this product although the prices are somewhat higher than buying directly from Avon.
Due to the reasons discussed above, I can give nothing less than five stars together with a high recommendation.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
