I do not like to visit salons for pedicures and manicures every month. There are mainly two reasons behind it. Firstly, the manicure and pedicure services at any reputed salon do not come very cheap and secondly, I am not confident enough about the hygiene sense of the salon ladies from my nearby beauty salons. Doing a proper cleanse to the hands and feet at regular interval is not only luxury but a basic need to be presentable. This necessity leaves me with only one choice; to do the nails and everything at home. Previously I used my normal skin and hair care regimen products for my at-home manicures and pedicures but recently I got VLCC’s salon series VLCC Pedicure-Manicure Hand & Foot Care Kit to get that salon-like experience at the convenience of my own home. Here is what I felt about this kit.

My Experience with VLCC Pedicure-Manicure Hand & Foot Care Kit
Packaging- This kit is basically an assortment of 5 different hand & foot care products that are generally used in salons for a basic manicure or pedicure. There is a clear plastic outer packaging to store all the products together. The backside of the outer covering, the ingredient details, and usage instructions are discussed in a user-friendly manner. Each product inside comes in either a tube or a container suitable for the nature of it. Overall it is a nice, compact and useful packaging that you can carry by its handle or store anywhere in your luggage while traveling.
Experience- Here I am going to share my experience with this kit product by product.
Step-1. Pediglow Hand & Foot Cleanser- This is a yellow colored liquid cleanser with the mild herbal smell. It is provided in this kit as a foot soak but I have used it with a foot brush as well. This light foaming cleanser performs well in both the cases. It cleanses off the dirt and sticky grime from my feet without over-drying. As I gather just a little impurities in my hands, I use this product just sparingly for my hands.
Step-2. Myrrh Cuticle Oil- Though this is given as the second step of this kit, I use it as the third step (after scrub). This is a light yellow color oil with medium thickness and vitamin oil type smell. I spread this oil over my nail beds and cuticles and let it sit there for a few minute. Then I use a rubber cuticle pusher to gently push the cuticles back without any bloodshed! This one is again a good product and does what it says.
Step-3. Pediglow hand & Foot Scrub- This foot scrub is a cream based exfoliator with small gritty particles. The particles are sharp enough to scrub the hard foot skin but they do not scratch or hurt the delicate hand skin. This product again smells herbal (lemongrass smell). I like to keep the product on my skin for a few minutes for the cream base to get soaked into the skin.
Step-4. Cocoa Butter Hand & Foot Cream- This is a medium thick massage cream. It smells great and nourishes hands and feet really well. It has a unique refreshing smell which is my favorite. Apart from the scent, its hydrating capability is awesome as well. I massage my hands and feet with it for about 10 minutes and then let it stay.
Step-5. Orange Anti Tan Pack- This is a cream based pack as opposed to common clay based packs. It has orange candy type fragrance. I like to apply it over the Cocoa buttercream so that I get the maximum benefit of the pack without drying out my already dry hands and feet. This pack does not form cracks as it dries. It gives squeaky clean hands and feet. The tan clearing effects are to be seen after 3-4 usages.
I find this kit to be worthy of the price. It gives me exactly same results as a salon manicure or pedicure.

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?
I would repurchase this product again and again because there is no other such economic and all-in-1 manicure-pedicure kit available from reputed brands. I would suggest this kit to everyone irrespective of gender and age for everyone needs to keep their hands and feet clean!
