Ahhh, don't hate me but I don't like this stuff at all. I just don't get all the raves? Maybe my horse hooves are just too much for this stuff. I don't know. I just don't see any results. BBW Heel of Approval is my HG and this Flexitol stuff certainly hasn't changed that.
I was surprised to see this on the MUA Top Picks list, as it's not exactly the fanciest or most glamorous product. But my heels crack like crazy and I've tried a million products on them to try to improve them. Some worked a bit, some didn't, but all of them never entirely made my feet as smooth and soft as I'd like, and if you missed even one application they usually went back to being horrible. This heel balm, however, made an immediate improvement in one use, and by a week my feet looked and felt *great*. And for those rare nights where I forget to slather it on, my feet still look fine so I know it is making a real difference. I got rid of all my other foot creams and am sticking to this -- between this and Mr. Pedi buffer, I could almost be a foot model and I can actually wear sandals without scaring small children!
I have bought this product several times now because it works so well. It also gets rid of dry knees and elbows. It must be the high concentration of urea; 25%, but I just admire how great it works. My heels were terrible before; flakey cracked heels, but Flexitol transformed them.
This balm is da bomb.
And the kicker is, I have only used it once! My heels literally looked like the ones on the box before now they are soft and sandal ready! I am no longer self conscious about my heels. It's not greasy which I love because it's getting warmer and just the thought of wearing sox to bed made me sweat.
Yes, it is wonderful. Probably the best foot cream on the market. It's also 25% urea, if you can get past that. I used to use Curel Foot Therapy, but switched to this product after reading the wonderful reviews. I believe Curel has discontinued their foot cream, and that's fine with me, because this works better. I run several miles everyday, so my feet take a beating, and this is like magic. I still use a foot file, every now and then, but this keeps my feet sandal ready, no matter what. I really don't need a foot file. Do yourself a favor and just try it. I doubt you will be disappointed. This is HG, and I have no reason to try all of the products that are shelved next to this. You can usually find it in where you find the gel insoles, and foot powders. It really needs a place next to the nail polish, and peppermint foot sprays, but if it has to be placed next to the athletes foot stuff, then so be it. I'm giving it 5 lippies. I don't use this every night, though. If you wear high heels, and/or if you're athletic, and need a few slightly rough spots on your feet (and if you do, you know what I mean) to keep from getting blisters, then I would suggest alternating this with a basic foot cream, every other night. It works that well. I was getting blisters on the very bottom of my heels, while wearing perfectly wonderful gym shoes. I cut down on my use of this, and presto! The problem went away. I now alternate with a peppermint Gold Bold cream. I still love this product, but yes, too much of this isn't a good thing. I run at least 6 miles a day, and my feet are always sandal ready. This is wonderful stuff, just dont over-use it.
Amazing stuff - HG status for me. I no longer need to use much of anything on my feet but this balm twice per day. It's thick, rich, sinks in amazingly and actually works - my feet feel and look amazing. I no longer have to file away. Must have - I got mine at Walgreens for around eleven dollars. I will definitely rebuy this one, especially with sandal weather on the way.
The ABSOLUTE BEST PRODUCT for heels. My heels have been transformed. They are like a baby's foot. Soft and perfect. I saw a major improvement in only a few days.....it was unbelievable. I now just use it once a day. If I wear boots all day at work, I put it on with socks. Or you can put it on at night before going to bed with socks. It is truly a miracle. I bought mine for under $6.00. I am beyond ready for sexy sandals for spring & summer this year! continued >>
I had been using the Ped-Egg and Aquaphor. It helped for a bit and then the dryness on my feet came back.
I got this a few days ago and it's awesome! I apply a small amount and then put socks on. My feet feel so soft and smooth.
I don't mind the smell......kind of medicine/lemony smelling.
This worked really well on my heels and the soles of my feet, which stay dry year-round and sandpaper-y through the winter. Regular application really makes a difference in how my feet look and feel. The trick is figuring out the best possible time to apply, especially if the aim is twice a day, because this stuff smells. It doesn't stink, it just smells...like (get ready) sweaty-but-fresh(?) feet. All I know is that I have to apply just before bedtime or else a much smaller amount in the morning while wearing gloves or something.
I have the worst feet, always have had. Even as a child I noticed they looked and felt like blocks of unsanded wood, especially when compared with the delicate tootsies of my female -- and male -- pals. I tried this three years ago, and in one night -- One. Night. -- my feet went from unsanded wood to something approaching polished agate. Okay, bad metaphor, but honestly, this stuff works!
When I first started using it, I applied it twice a day. I would wear socks to bed, usually, but not always. Now, I use it only once a day unless I have been going barefoot or regularly wearing sandals or flip flops. Because of this product, I don't scrape myself unintentionally when I sleep, I don't snag my heels on my socks or hose, I can wear sandals again without fear, and I don't feel self conscious about occasionally going barefoot. This product has saved my feet, and it has improved my self esteem. If you haven't tried this product, you really should.
