SYNOPSIS: This stuff WORKS.
I'm not one of those with dinosaur feet, but I don't suffer the calluses I have well. A product that would help my feet start over with new skin would be a fantasy. Like many of you, I read about this product in a magazine and, after seeking it in several local stores to no avail, I ordered it from Amazon for the retail price of $25USD.
Find a time when you will be able to set aside about an hour and a half of quiet time to use this product. Do what the directions say, at least the first time you use it. If you follow directions, the product does what it says it will do. The product is two booties, cellophane envelopes actually, about the size of your feet plus a little extra room, with some clear swishy gel inside. The gel contains high concentrations of alpha-hydroxy acids, plus a little lavender fragrance. Soak your feet in warm water for about 15 minutes and pat dry prior to wearing the booties. Put one bootie on each foot, duh, and if you like, use the enclosed tape to tape the tops shut. I, in addition, put some fuzzy socks over the booties to make them stay put. Then just prop up your feet and find something to do for an hour that doesn't require walking around. Watch TV, read a book, surf MUA on your tablet, whatever...just don't try to walk. The gel is so slippery, you're bound to slip and fall. You may care to combine it with a facial masque for an hour of beauty relaxation! When the hour is up, hobble back into the bathroom, rinse off your feet, pat them dry, and discard the booties. I have heard of people trying to reuse them, but the first time, at least, don't. Wait to see how your feet react first.
For a week or so, you'll forget you ever had them on. Just go about your regular routine. Then one day, you'll notice the skin starting to crack in one spot; I first noticed mine on the backs of heels where my shoes would normally hit. And that's when the peeling starts. Ladies and gentlemen, they are not kidding when they say the skin peels off in sheets. Mine was coming off in pieces the size of playing cards. I held a few pieces up to the light, and the ridges were so well-defined they could have been used as evidence on Forensic Files. You will be fascinated by the size and scope of the peels, as well as the soft skin underneath. I wouldn't say as soft as actual babies' feet, but pretty darn close!!
They tell you not to pick, but some of us can't help it. You know who you are: you sunburn peelers, my kindred spirits! If you can resist the urge, the whole peel will be done in three or four more days. The first spots to peel, after the heels, were the soles, insteps, and then the balls of my feet. The last spots to peel were the tops of my insteps, and around my toe cuticles.
After that, use whatever product you like to maintain the softness.
I would think this product would be fine to use about three or four times a year. I've tried other imitation products since then, but IMHO there's nothing like Baby Foot.
