MARLAY LOTION FOR SOFT FEET, DOES IT WORK ?

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. 

NAILS
This is how the product looks !

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!

LOTION
This is the actual bottle

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 . 

CREAM LOTION
Old fashioned Nail file 

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 ).

Have you tried this ?

A chic Treat ! with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Foot Magic

Hi guys, hope you are all doing well ! As you read the heading, I have been a big fan of Palmer’s cocoa butter , especially claiming to be a Tummy Butter Mama. Right from my teens, I was quite intrigued by this brand, and I started using the tummy butter during my pregnancy time, I was completely dissolved into their mild soothing fragrance. 

As  you all know, now its the summer, and your skin is ever thirsty ! Especially, if you have dry feet like me, then you have to keep applying the cream every now and then to avoid getting dry and making them hydrated!

I like lotions and potions, but I was not disciplined enough to go through the moisturize and wear cotton socks routine every night, but after I got this Foot Magic , I started the routine and have been sticking to it for quite some days. Let me start my review by introducing the product.

WHAT DOES PALMER’S SAY ? An intensive balm that deeply moisturizes rough, dry skin and soothes tired feet. Pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E and other natural emollients, provides a deep penetrating treatment for the feet. This unique formulation moisturizes, softens and smooths even the roughest, driest skin. 

LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT THE INGREDIENTS : 

  • COCOA BUTTER: Cocoa Butter addresses skin concerns such as roughness, loss of elasticity, scars and dryness. Cocoa Butter is an all natural skin conditioning plant extract loaded with essential fatty acids. It softens and protects by diminishing water loss – keeping skin hydrated and supple.
  • VITAMIN e : Vitamin E is contained in all Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula products and is absolutely essential for the face. This top antioxidant diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars by keeping skin cells hydrated.

Apart from cocoa butter it also contains Mango Seed Butter , Shea Butter , Peppermint Oil and Eucalyptus Oil.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE  : 

  • Apply to rough, dry, calloused  feet daily to achieve and maintain soft , supple skin.
  • Especially effective when applied to feet at night then covered with cotton socks.

MY TAKE ON THIS PRODUCT :

This is a foot cream which claims to transform dry, rough and calloused feet. Now don’t worry I’m not going to show you them but my feet aren’t in the best condition. I’ve been thinking to get a pedicure for ages but haven’t gotten around to it so I was delighted to use  this cream as my feet badly need it for this dry summers.

Because it’s a Palmer’s Cocoa Butter product I immediately expected it to have that chocolate smell but when I opened it I just got the smell of a  refreshing peppermint. The product contains Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Mango Butter and Peppermint Oil. I also expected this to have a creamy consistency but it’s more of an thick ointment texture which I really like. I’ve used this before bed for a few days now and I can definitely notice my feet are softer. The peppermint also gives a lovely cooling tingle to the feet which is great for summer.

MY FINAL VERDICT : Even with just four   days of use, I saw an improvement and  my feet have become well moisturized and the dry patches have disappeared. The best thing about this balm is that you can forget to use it or skip using it on alternate days, but the effect does not wear off. This is what suits me very well. My feet have become softer and smoother.

AVAILABILITY : Palmer’s brand is available at most of the Super markets, hypermarkets like Lulu Hypermarkets, Carrefour UAE , Spinneys , Megamart , Geant , and also few of the leading pharmacies like Boots Middle East . 

Finally, as the Brand Ambassador for Palmer’s Middle East , I hope to be bringing to your attention more of their skin and hair care products, and if you would like to find out more about what they have , simply head over to their website. For regular updates, you can also find them on Facebook , Instagram, and Twitter.
