Is The Beurer FB25 Footspa Right For You?
If you are looking for something to give you a sense of calm at the end of the day, then this just might be the product for you. This product is especially suited to people who feel a lot of tension in their feet or suffer from hard skin on the soles of their feet.
The base of the foot spa is not smooth, and is actually formed from small plastic spikes. The spikes themselves are developed to delve into the areas of the feet that are the most damaged and experience the most tension. When the vibration setting is turned on, these spikes will be at their most effective.
They provide a fabulous foot massage.
However, if you have particularly sensitive skin on the soles of your feet then you may find that the spikes themselves can be quite uncomfortable and even painful.
This product is not simply a footspa that acts like a bath for your feet. It is designed to mimic the work of professionals as much as possible. Therefore if you are looking for a salon level experience then this product would definitely be a great one for you.
Overall, this product has been created with over a hundred years of experience behind it. The techniques and technology used aims to provide an experience similar to that of getting a foot massage from a qualified therapist.
The product uses its internal heating element to raise the temperature of the water and provide a warmth and relaxation to the feet.
The vibration setting simulates a real life massage and the bubbles can also add an extra layer of comfort. However, this product has not be built without considering practicality.
The base of the unit comes with rubber feet that are anti-slip which will prevent the unit sliding around the floor when in use.
The unit also comes with an anti-spillage system to prevent the floor being damaged. This is highly important as it is really easy to slightly overfill the unit, or add too many bubbles and risk it overflowing. One of the really great things about this product is that it can be used in combination with other relaxation products such as bath salts.
The core downside to this product is that the actual base where the feet are rested can be slightly too intense for some people. As well as, the lack of any kind of draining system is a huge oversight by the manufacturers and may even put off people from using the product due to the effort needed to empty and clean it.
The unit does not allow the heating setting to be changed, it is either on or off and this can result in the water become far too hot. However, overall this product does provide a great home alternative to a professional foot treatment.
If used regularly, this footspa is certainly going to pay for itself.
