Staring down I was disappointed to see the same calloused feet I began with seven days ago. This was my first experience with Baby Foot (exfoliant foot peel) and I was excited at the prospect of restoring my baby soft feet from long ago.
Based on the lack of any improvement, I was poised to give this product a resounding “thumbs down”. I wanted to warn others to save their money. Low and behold I woke up the next morning with dry, peeling flakey skin on both the tops and bottoms of my feet, including my ankles. This was not a pretty sight. It resembled a bad foot fungus.
Days later, I’m still peeling like crazy. The good news, there are areas on my feet where the skin has thoroughly peeled leaving baby soft skin. No complaints there.
I have changed my nay into a Yay, however with a few caveats.
1. Do not use this product the day after a pedicure. I found it removed much of the polish from my toenails. I would suggest using it the night before a new color.
2. Use this product only when you have “several weeks” where your feet can look a mess and you don’t care. If I had a special occasion, such as a wedding or summer vacation, I would not be happy taking these feet with me.
3. This product is best used before you achieve that gorgeous tan, or even the slightest of color on your legs and feet. Recently, I began sitting on my deck for 20 minutes in the morning to catch some rays. I was slowly starting to get some color when BAM, it began peeling away from my ankles down. This is not a look you’ll care to sport if you wear sandals.
Overall, I would give this product a thumbs up. I plan on giving it another try, but I’ll be more selective about when to use it. The next time I’ll probably take my own advice (Ha-ha). However, I am an sample of one. I have a blogger friend that told me she didn’t peel at all. Maybe her feet were already baby-soft.
If you have tried Baby Foot we would love to hear about your experience and if you would give it a yay or nay.
Wishing you a great week.
PS. To maintain your baby soft feet – think pumice.
