Scholl Rough Skin Remover : Review

On a trip to the pharmacy a few months back (to stock up on some essential tablets) I noticed the Scholl foot care range happily sitting on one of their shelves. I happily gave in to the temptation (whaaat? They called out to me okay :P) and bought the Foot and Nail cream and this Rough Skin Remover. According to me they (walking daily in the sun and running around in the hospital does weird stuff to your feet you know) would be perfect for some self pampering :) :D

The scrub comes in a nice squeeze tube with a flip cap. Very convenient to use and totally travel friendly. The consistency is quite thick and gritty (not at all creamy). It is a white base overloaded with lots and lots of white granules (which I am assuming is pumice). The fragrance is mild but a little bit peculiar (but that can be eaisly overlooked).

Now I know the instructions say that it should be used on dry feet, but it is just too harsh that way and the granules just fall off :P It works so much better when I soak my feet in warm water for a few minutes. The granules are very abrasive and making the skin wet is just good sense.

I find that normal and very creamy scrubs do not work that effecttively on the tough feet skin. I feel that this one does a good job of removing all the dead skin and gives a silky smooth feel after use. It will not perform miracles on cracked heels and skin (the only thing that will solve those issues is regular care), but it will make your feet look better after a long day.
If you need a hydrating base, then just mix it with a normal creamy scrub and you are sorted. Also, since this is abrasive I do not use it everyday (and I do not recommend you all to use it daily either). It is more like once a week use scrub..or twice maximum (one tube will last you a long time) and I strongly recommend soaking the feet first. The scrub works decently on other rough areas like the elbows and knees too.

Overall, this makes a good exfoliator when used on soaked feet and takes care of all that dead dry skin and dirt. Not an everyday product but it feels good to use it once a week. Worth a try!

Price: 150INR for 75ml
