Remember the ads for those magic baby feet products? They promise to remove layers of skin on your feet making them as smooth as the day you were born. I saw this version by Korean beauty company Tony Moly and decided to give it a try. You have to give the treatment a hour and a half to work, so get comfortable. I sat down in front of the TV and watched Poldark.
I removed my nail polish (this would probably take it off/mess it up). The product smells good and didn’t irritate my feet. It was easy for me to wash off and it didn’t dry out my feet. Now the waiting begins….
The package said it would take four days before the skin started peeling off, but it took my skin seven days. I did not take a picture of the carnage because it was GROSS, like get a vacuum gross. Skin was coming off every part of my foot, mostly from the bottom. I helped it along by scrubbing my feet with a pumice stone (even though it said not to) in the bathtub to mitigate the peeling. I definitely would not do this treatment mid summer because you will have skin coming off for about a week. The end result was amazing! My feet look 10 years younger and all the ugly calluses were gone. I definitely will use this again! Get your own treatment at ULTA or Amazon for around $6.50.
