The Babyfoot Experiment

Generally I have smooth feet as I keep getting pedicures. However past month and half have been a nightmare. Finding apartments and then moving into one. All this left me with no time for myself and resulted in horrible looking feet. By horrible I mean really dry, rough heels and I had to hide them by wearing closed shoes all the time.

I took my roughed  up feet as the perfect opportunity to try out Babyfoot which was sent to me by their PR team. Babyfoot is a Japanese product tried and tested by bloggers worldwide. The results are satisfying for most but the process.. well not exactly beautiful.

Packaging

The product comes with two lavender scented gelled booties and a sheet of tape to secure the plastic booties at ankles.

Application

Super simple! Just soak your feet in water for about 10 – 15 mins. Once done, pat them dry and wear the booties. Secure with the given tape and do not move! Though the product doesn’t mention to stay still but I would certainly prefer not moving in those plastic booties so that the product works its magic.

The product mentions 60 minutes but as I was watching a movie, I completely forgot to remove them until it was 90 minutes. No harm to the feet and no itchiness whatsoever. I felt like some oil was applied on my feel and slightly slimy as I removed the booties.

Results

Day 1: Slight white marks on the heel and sole of my feet.

Day 2: Gets a bit freaky as the dry skin starts detaching itself.

Day 3: More dry skin peeling off, I covered my feet all the time during peeling process as it looks a bit weird.

Day 4: Slowly tugged out the peels to reveal soft skin beneath.

Day 5 : complete peeling was over and now baby soft skin revealed. The package mentions that peeling process may take upto two weeks, maybe that’s for worst case scenarios.

Post peeling care

It is recommended to not use any lotions and even scrubs for feet as all dead cells are already removed in peeling process.

The key to peeling is soaking your feet everyday post application for atleast 15 minutes as this softens the skin and helps in removing the dead skin.

Product is recommended to use once in every two months.

Verdict

I really liked the product except the peeling process that really is unique and a grossly satisfying experience. The product certainly delivers the promise of baby like feet. This revolutionary product is designed to soften the toughest of heels. What makes it so effective is the addition of keratolytic ingredients such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, alcohol & glycolic acid.

Babyfoot is available on Souq.com and in all leading drugstores & hypermarkets.

Ps: I took pictures of peeling process but I don’t want to share them as its not really a appealing sight)

Nailshop.ae Nail Decals

A good manicure can make your day and what can make it better is nail art transfers.

A few months back I met lovely Natalia from Nailshop.ae. Nailshop is a very interesting website that offers you nail art transfers, magnetic nail polishes, nail art stencils and more such unique products.

I was provided some of their nail decals for reviewing and here are the results. At first I made a mistake in how to use the nail transfers. I thought it’s like a tattoo which gets stuck on the nail. It was silly of me to not watch the tutorial. However once I did watch the video, it was easy and quick!

STEP 1 Watch the nail art transfer tutorial here

STEP 2 cut out the desired nail art and dip it in water just for three seconds.

STEP 3 Carefully peel the transfer foil from the paper and apply on nail. Let it set and cut off the excess from the edges.

STEP 4 Gently apply a clear coat to finish the look!

I tried two of their designs and loved it so much. These transfer just cost AED 12 onwards and look gorgeous on the nails. Mine lasted for about a week and because I don’t like to overdo the designs I prefer applying the nail transfer on one nail and painting the remaining with solid colors.

Overall, love the look and my nails look so pretty! Have a look at the two patterns below.

Moshi – Summer Menu Review

A few weeks back we were been invited to Moshi’s blogger event to launch their new Summer Menu. I had to be there because I had heard so much about Moshi and the fact that they pay attention to vegetarian preparations in the most careful manner. Also they are so popular among so many of my friends. Along with this review, you will find excerpts from my tête-à-tête with the owner himself.

Since it was a blogger event, it was an absolute busy night for the restaurant, dishes, photos and more. So the service part of the the review could not exactly be covered but will cover the remaining aspects.

I started our tasting with some fabulous drinks. Strawberry Mojito and Lotus Milkshake. The Mojito was a bit tart for my liking but I really loved the bulb shaped glass it was presented in. The lotus milkshake on the other hand was yum! I was actually over with the obsession of Lotus biscuits but post this milkshake I fell in love with it again! It was thick, not too sweet but just perfect and freshly prepared.

For me, sushi is almost an uncharted territory because I was never fond of seafood and then post me converting to a strict vegetarianism I did not get many opportunities to try any vegetarian sushi. After the drinks, I had the cheesy oman chip sushi, broccoli & asparagus, cheetos sushi. The cheesy oman chips sushi was the best of three! Rolled in classic oman chips, filled with cream cheese we gobbled down the sushi and got some more of it! The broccoli and asparagus sushi was interesting one too. Stuffed with asparagus tempura, the broccoli sushi was delicious but a bit dry for my liking. The cheetos sushi was another new concept, each sushi roll was topped generously with cheetos chips, rolled in sesame seeds it tasted great but my heart would still go with the oman chips sushi.

I also got a chance to try BPD Dhokla Maki (Dhokla is steamed savory cakes from Gujrat, India) , Lebnah & Zaatar Maki and felafel Nigiri. The dhokla sushi was unique & delicious, I would have never imagined Dhokla in a sushi but wow this has amazed me on so many levels. The lebnah and zaatar maki was refreshing but average for me because the taste of zatar and lebnah has become an everyday thing for me. However it was interesting to see how these unusual ingredients were paired together and tasted well. The felafel nigiri was one of my favorites too. Felafel wrapped in nori wraps tasted fab!

We did want to try other vegetarian dishes however it was unfortunate that those were all sold out. However I will surely visit them again to try more of their deliciousness.

Overall, my guest and I enjoyed the tasting session and we even got a chance to add a Pink Asfoura Blog Lock at the restaurant 🙂 Some dishes were a hit, some were a miss but it was a fun tasting session and the good thing is that despite so much crowd the owner & the support staff did ensure to check with feedback from everyone personally.

With my chat with the owner Mr Rahul Sajnani , I was explained in detail for what goes in making the dishes so popular. Fresh Ingredients, on spot preparations and made to order dishes are one of reasons why Moshi is loved by most. The owner did highlight that for vegetarian dishes in particular the care is taken to prepare and serve them separately. The vegetarian dishes are served in white plates , while non vegetarian are served in orange plates. I also learnt that the rice used for sushi and maki rolls is gluten free and most of them are fat free too!

Seating area at the Oud Mehta Branch is casual with long sitting benches for groups and cozy corners for two all going with the theme of orange and white.

Visit them to try the delicacies mentioned above and more such as sushi burger, hot dog maki volcano roll and more.
