Forewarning – if you don’t like feet or pictures of feet, you don’t want to read this post!
Now…to get on to the review…
I saw a blogger talk about her experience with Baby Foot Exfoliation Peel, and I was intrigued. Then a few days later, I saw people.com do a review on it as well. So I thought I better try it!
I wouldn’t say my feet are in horrible shape, but I definitely have a few calluses that are pretty rough – and my typical pedicure never seems to really tackle them. So I thought for the price of a pedicure, I could try this exfoliation treatment. I read a lot of reviews and saw a ton of people’s pictures. Truthfully, they were a little scary! Some people’s feet looked…well…disgusting during the process. But, the after pictures made it all worth it.
So here are my feet before:
I hate the calluses underneath my big toes and on the balls of my feet. My heels are pretty scratchy as well. I know it’s a little hard to see in the picture.
Did I mention I convinced my mom to do it with me? 🙂 She wanted to have smooth feet, too. So each package comes with two booties filled with a jelly substance. The directions recommended you soak your feet in warm water first before putting the booties on…so we soaked for 10 minutes.
Then it was time to put on the booties…and sit. For one hour. And I understand why they don’t want you walking around because the gel substance made you slip around in the booties and you could easily lose your balance.
After the hour, we washed the substance off our feet. And that was it! Now it was time to wait for the peeling to start. In the directions, it said it could take a few days before you start seeing anything happen. And they were right! Mine started to peel before my mom’s due to the fact with how much I work out, my sweaty feet and wearing socks helped get the process started. Mine started three days after I had the booties on, and my mom’s started to peel about five days later.
Here are my feet five days later – and the peel was in full force:
Now, I know there are some of you out there saying “I bet it was so fun to pick the skin off!” The instructions said not to peel it off. Let it happen naturally. So, as hard as it was, I didn’t pick at my feet. See the blue under my feet? Those are the socks I wore constantly when I was home. The socks made my unable to pick.
The tops of my feet didn’t peel too much. It pretty much stopped half way up my toes. Now, the top of my mom’s feet peeled like crazy!! She wasn’t as willing to share pictures 🙂
I was able to hide my peeling by wearing pumps to work. If I would have worn sandals to work and people looked down at my feet, they probably would have looked away in disgust. The skin peeled off a lot on the sides. You should have seen my kids’ faces when I showed them! It was pretty priceless.
So here are the results:
They definitely are so much smoother. The skin just feels new and like the name says, baby like. It helped with my two trouble spots. Although they aren’t gone by any means, they are much better. The flash from the camera also caught the nice shine from the new skin! My mom’s feet are also so much smoother, and she is happy with her results. Her peeling lasted longer than mine, probably nine days.
Unless you don’t mind the peeling, you may want to wait until fall or winter to do the peel. But I highly recommend it. It’s such a great way to get rid of the dead layer of skin on your feet naturally.
Here’s a side-by-side for comparison:
