Let’s talk feet. You might find this gross, weird, disturbing, however, it’s AWE-mazing. You see we are counting down the days (43) until our toes are in the sand for our annual Florida trip and, unfortunately, my feet and legs are overworked and you could see it in my soles. Reviewers said I could get my haven’t-seen-a-pedicure-in-a-couple-of-years feet ready for the beach in no time with The Face Shop Smile Foot Peeling Mask . Ok. They didn’t say that per-se, but that’s how it rolled around in my head. Since it cost less than $8 I figured why not.
The steps are simple enough. Wash and soak your feet, put on the booties, pour in the solution, and tie them up at the ankles and wait. While you’ll be able to maneuver around with the socks on, I recommend taking a breather and just relaxing during the treatment. I waited until the girls were asleep, sat in my comfy chair and streamed a few episodes of Game of Thrones. After 90-minutes into Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, I simply removed and discarded the socks and rinsed my feet with warm water.
The thing is that the peeling doesn’t happen right way. It took a full week before my skin started to fall away…and then it REALLY came off. Lots of dead skin was *shudder* all over my sheets. After that, I tried to wear socks as much as possible as the shedding continued to resemble snakeskin. EEK. If you’re going to do this, try to avoid any and all barefoot activities during the peeling phase. Just wear socks. Always. To everything. Everywhere. Trust me.
After this hideous peeling phase and about 10 days post mask, I had a beautiful set of crack free feet! All callouses and rough skin were magically gone and my feet feel and look softer than they have in ages. Alas, despite the snakelike sloughing…I loved this product and I love my feet again. 🙂 You just can’t beat that for $8.
