after i use my Checi foot file, i follow up with flexitol and apply some socks...wake up with super soft feet! my feet have been dry lately and i've tried different lotions...but this is by far, my fave!
Love this for my feet, which get very calloused and cracked if I don't use this product. I use a scraper (such as the Ped Egg) in conjunction with this and have never had lovelier feet! After applying Flexitol, my feet feel very warm and turn a little pink, but it is not an unpleasant feeling. It smells mediciney, but the results are definitely worth it.
Thank you Makeupalley for the high rating on this product. I never would have found it on my own.
It is the only product that has healed my severely cracked and dry heels. I put it on at night and wear cotton socks to bed. It soaks in fast and is easy to get out in the flip top tube. It's holy grail product for me now. I love it. I can finally wear flipflops and slinkback pumps again.
The constistency is perfect and I don't notice any type of odor. My hands seem so much smoother, too, just from the application process. I found it at Walgreens and Target for about $4 for 4oz. The active incredient is 25%urea. Other lotions and creams I have tried only contained a smaller percentage, so I'm sure the high content has something to do with its effectiveness.
I truly can't recommend this product enough.
First off, I am not reviewing this for use on my feet. I have pretty severe keratosis pilaris - those pesky, red bumps on your upper arms. Regular lotion does nothting, and I was not about to shell out $40 for some fancy lotion. Urea works for KP as well so I figured Id try it. I can already notice a small difference with one use. With KP, the results only last if you continue to use it, so I imagine this will save me a lot of money. Now, my KP is pretty severe because this product doesnt even so much as make my skin tingle (and its something like 25% urea?). So I would not recommend this for those that only have minor problems. My only gripe is the smell, not so bad when its on your feet, but when its on your upper arms *cringe*. It reminds me of the hair dye I used to use, hence 1 lippie off. For the results, I will continue to use it and deal with the stench.
This stuff is HG! A lifesaver! I have those type of nasty heels that you see in the "before" part of the PedEgg commercial..and I have tried everything, before this, only regular pedicures and Gehwol Foot Salve worked. I lost my pedicurist and my feet cracked up again on me. Deep, crusty and bleeding cracks. I read the reviews for this, and am I ever glad that I did! My feet are now as soft and smooth as they are gonna get for the dead of winter, and no cracks! Love this stuff, will continue to repurchase until I build an immunity to it. (Hope it doesnt happen)
Great stuff. My podiatrist recommended this and it has worked wonders on my nasty hooves. It also works wonderfully in combination with Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Salve on cuticles and hands for the overnight. This combo would prob work best wearing those little cotton gloves for nightime but I can never stand them on my hands at night and end up ripping them off and throwing them wherever.
Moisturizes well, goes on thickly but doesn't leave my feet slippery for hours. I have problems with foot cracks, calluses, and general foot ugliness. I tried regular lotion daily (no), Aquaphor alone and in conjunction w/ lotions (no), Kerasol (no). I finally tried Flexitol, and at first I was skeptical that it was working. Before I realized it, my feet were smooth again! I definitely think using a Ped Egg or some kind of foot file helps when using this product.
Price is kind of high ($10 for 4 oz), but in my grocery it does occasionally go on sale.
I concur with Punk_Rock_Grrrl; Flexitol cream used in conjunction with the PedEgg has worked miracles on my feet. My heels get very dry and cracked, especially in the winter. I've actually had to resort to Krazy Glue a few times in the past when the cracks got too deep and painful (this works great, by the way).
Flexitol cream is 25% urea and should only be used on the feet or maybe on the elbows or knees in cases of extreme dryness. This high urea-content is likely to cause irritation when applied to more sensitive areas of the skin.
This isn't the kind of cream that feels "good" and silky. It's definitely a therapeutic treatment. Use this morning and night for a week and experience the miracle. After that you can get away with using it only a couple of times a week. I was amazed to find that my stockpiles of regular lotions and creams actually worked like they're supposed to once my feet were healed!
Cost = $4.00 for 2 oz (can sometimes find tubes with 25% more free)
Okay, this stuff has worked a miracle. I have psoriasis on the sides of my feet and ankles: itchy, dry, deeply creviced red patches that look and feel awful. Or at least I did have it for years.
Heel Balm makes it disappear and stops the itch! It does reappear when I stop using the cream, but its now easy to keep it completely under control all the time.
Not only that, but it softens my feet and a little on knees and elbows works wonders too. This little tube did what my dermatologist and expensive prescriptions couldn't!
I like this foot cream a lot. I used to use kerasal ointment, but you get a lot more with flexitol and it's about half the price. It makes my feet smoth and soft so I use it every other day or so in the summer because I'm either barefoot or in flip flops every day. I almost never have to use a foot file or pumice because this lotion keep my feet from getting dry or cracked. The smell is a little strong, but it's on your feet, so you really can't smell it after you put it on, and I do like to wash my hands after application as it is a little heavy to leave on your hands. The packaging is good, it's an upsidedown tube, so you can get most of the product out without cutting it open. I'll definetly repurchase, but it lasts a long time so who knows when I'll need to.
