Update: Foot peel

Several weeks ago I tried one of those magic foot peel things that were apparently supposed to take years of wear and tear off your tootsies and leave you with feet as smooth as whipped butter. I never got back with my final thoughts, so here it goes:

Yes, it did peel. Lots. Not quite as much as advertised, but if you were someone who regularly got pedicures I’m sure it would have (but then if you were someone who regularly got them, would you need this? Just as I was thinking that I would try the second application I noticed something odd- for the past few weeks if I do get a callous the rough skin simply won’t stick. a foot path or even just a long shower and the hard skin will peel off like wet wallpaper. So I am going to see how long that lasts before a second application. So I am giving it a personal B+. YOu mileage may vary.

If you have used the product I am sure we would love to read about your experiences. Please share in the comments.

    I have *major* calluses, so the foot peels (which I love) mostly just take the cracked, uncomfortable parts of the larger calluses off and smooth up the rest. I’ve never used the official Baby Feet brand, but have done a few of the other Amazon-available ones (Dr. Pedicure worked well). I take longer to start peeling than the package says, and it takes longer for it to finish, but I have gotten good results! Soaking feet daily once they start peeling really helps.

    I tried it once and… we need our calluses. Like, if your feet do much work at all they have calluses for a reason. I don’t get blisters riding horses, doing barn chores, hiking, etc, *because I have calluses.*

    I do not understand peels. I mean, I found life (which yes I have an active one that involves zero high heels or fancy sandals and lots of boots and movement) was way less comfortable without my protective layers of skin! NOT something I’ll ever do again!

      I have a horse, too, Jo. What do you have? Mine’s a 16.2 grey thoroughbred who is almost 29 years old but still thinks he’s going to the gate.

    I’m a Baby Feet user as well. I’m pleased with the results and have repurchased and recommended. Following the directions and not expecting instant peeling are key.

  • Francesca Belanger says:

    I used Baby Feet once, after giving my feet a good soak as recommended in the comments on Amazon. I get pedicures fairly regularly, so the peeling wasn’t as dramatic as I had hoped. Still, my feet did feel beautiful soft after the process was over.

    What was the name of the product that you used? Thanks!
