we all dream of having a soft , well moisturized feet but sometimes or the other, it is more of a dream and actually not in reality. How many of you go for pedicures, frequently ? I haven’t done so in ages ! Today, I’m going to share my personal experience of using a wonderful product for all your feet problems , nails and hand problem , from the french brand MARLAY COSMETICS.
What does Marlay Cosmetics say about it ? Revolutionary in the treatment of cuticles and callosities, the MARLAY lotion won an award at the prestigious Lepine innovation contest in 1990.
Based on CELANDINE, a medicinal herb used by French great – grandmothers for its curative virtues, the formula gently dissolves all dead skin for a perfect manicure and baby soft feet all year around.
It is also very effective on corns , calluses and other build-ups of hard skin when reapplied over several days.
What I understood from this ? In short, I wanted to test the lotion Marlay Celandine. The purpose of this lotion? Dissolve the dead skins so that you can remove them and make you feet of an incomparable softness.
Yes, we are not in absolute Glamor, but let’s say we have to go through there to have nice feet!
To accompany the lotion, the brand also offers cotton pads and a big nail file which will be very useful to let the lotion put on my feet.
Texture of the product is like water, too thin and a runny texture, So, be extra careful while trying to pour them.
How to use them ?
- Option 1 : soak the cotton and leave it, like a cloth mask, for 15 to 20 minutes on the areas to be treated.
- Option 2 : Dilute 2 to 3 drops of lotion in a bowl of water and make a foot bath for 15 to 20 minutes. I chose the second option, which seemed to me the most practical.
Small note: you can do it on the feet but also on the hands.
The first option wouldn’t be so practical , as it’s a bit hard to spend 20 minutes without moving, without dropping the cottons.
My Experience of using them :
I first soaked my feet in the water with these drops for about good 20 minutes. I previously had a Wart on my foot, and I had Cryo for that to get removed – such a painful one , you know ! Since then, am extra cautious for my foot, but still i have those dark dead skin present .
I thought , You wanted it, you got it! So once the laying time has passed, you have to take a trick to scrape. Kind an old-fashioned nail file. And you scrap, scrap and scrap ! Dead skins go off very easily.
In the end, I found the lotion very effective. Well, these are slightly too EFFECTIVE, because when you see all your skins falling, it’s totally scary. There, it is the “soft alopecia” version. It works, but you still have control.
For hands, I have mostly used them as a cuticle oil . But I honestly I prefer them for the foot care than nails, as it is very effective.
Priced at 35 Euros, a little pricey, but great effect !
( This was sent to me as a PR sample, however my opinions are honest and are tried and tested ).
