I can't count how many tubes of this I've gone through. The first time I tried it, my chronically rough and dry heels smoothed out almost immediately. Now I apply it every morning after I shower and my heels stay smooth. No other product I've ever tried has come close in its moisturizing and healing power -- and I have tried lots of them. Ignore the gross cracked heel photos on the box and grab some of this if you have dry heel problems.

This has been a god send! For me, this is by far the most effective product out there for dry, cracked, calloused heels. I love that it is not greasy. Doesn't smell too good but not too horrible either. Who cares...it works!!

I get some REALLY INTENSE fishers (cracks on the heel) during the dry months of the year. I love this stuff. It saves me from pain. Vaseline used to be the trick for me until I found this and it works more effectively.

I didn't use this for my heels. I had peeling skin on my thumbs, causing open wounds. My doctor said it was eczema but I didn't want to use the cortisone cream he gave me too much as it is not good long term for the skin. I have tried numerous creams, oils, many did not work, maybe 1 or 2 helped a very slight bit but not much at all. My thumbs looked horrible!!! At night, I started applying this cream onto my thumbs and then I put on cotton gloves. I started seeing an improvement the very first day. Approx 2 weeks later, my skin looks so much better, peeling is 99% gone, wounds healed, the difference is amazing.

This is a really great product for those who's feet get dry, cracked and gnarly looking. Apply at night and after 2-3 nights those callouses will be gone! With that said, my last purchase of this was in new packing and maybe it's all in my head, but it just doesn't seem to be quite as effective.

Hello Happy Heels! This stuff is HG for me.

I've suffered from extremely dry, cracked heels for years - as I only wear sandals and open toed shoes when I can. Since moving to LA, the water has further dried out my heels and they were a complete mess, peeling off in bigger pieces and no amount of buffing would help. (Interestingly, buffing cracks only really makes it a whole lot worse, not to mention super ugly!)

Armed with the reviews here on MUA, I ran straight to CVS!

My heels were almost instantly better the next day and even though I've not been diligent about reapplying daily, I try to use this at least twice a week for maintenance and so far, so good! Texture wise it's not greasy and absorbs well - just give yourself about ten minutes to let dry (more if you have the time), wipe off the excess and carry on with your day!

The only complaint I would have is that the tube is quite big so I've distilled it into a smaller bottle for travel. Otherwise, this is one of the cheaper treatments on the market - yes, the packaging doesn't look all that sexy but honestly - who cares when it works miracles?!

Key Ingredients: Moisturizers such as Aloe, Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Lanolin, Glycolic Acid, and Tea Tree Oil

Centipeda Cunninghamii is a unique Australian herb clinically proven to have skin nourishing properties, which aids in the softening of hard, thickened skin.

Urea promotes hydration by increasing skin's water binding capacity and decrease water loss from skin's surface. It also helps to dissolve rough and dry skin through keratolytic action.

Glycolic Acid also enhances the exfoliating properties.

This is the best heel balm I've ever owned, my feet are in the best condition that they've ever been in thanks to this product. I don't even use it that often but my heels are no more chapped, dry with hard callouses. I've got nothing bad to say about this. The packaging could be a little prettier but never mind that!

This stuff is perfect! My go-to product because I have really painful cracked heels. I usually file my feet and then apply this stuff before bed. It's about $10 Canadian at drugstores, and has lasted me about a year of frequent use. I've repurchased already and definitely will again.

Want soft feet? Yeah? STOP reading this and open a new browser tab and look up the Baby Foot Peel first.

I have no clue how I was lucky enough to find a product like the peel. Works exactly how the reviews say it will. Check out my review on makeupalley too! (It's an essay :P)

Anyways, my sister was the one who showed me Flexitol heel balm. Works like a charm. I just happened to start using this balm right after the dead skin peeled off (from the peel, of course) making it so much easier than scrubbing my feet with a pumice stone!!

I just want to strongly enforce the fact that I don't believe either the peel I used or this balm seperately would've done as good a job as they did together. IT's like PB&J.

After soaking feet in warm water (a night time pampering ritual for myself), I pat my feet dry and put the balm on the top of each foot and rub my feet together like a monkey. No seriously, I rather not take the time (and waste product) by putting on my hands before applying to my feet (although, I must say I think this makes a great hand cream) and then having to wash off my hands. This stuff lingers and I learned that the first night using it.

So yeah, after rubbing feet together, they aren't greasy per-say but you can definitly feel the product on your skin. So what I do is put socks on top. I hate socks absolutely hate them but I rather feel socks on my feet than balm spreading onto my legs, sheets, etc. Throughout the night the stuff absorbs. I've only used this stuff for about a week. The first night was enough for me to feel softer feet even after the residual balm washed off in the shower the next morning. Like I even forgot to put some on yesterday and it's still really soft and moisturized..

The one totally ironic thing about this heel balm is that it makes everything plump and soft EXCEPT my heels. Lol. I guess I need to apply more/often but so far my toes are baby soft. LOL..

I constantly wear flats/heels/flip flops which torture the skin on my feet so I will definitely be keeping this in my arsenal. (And the Baby Foot Peel too!)
