This treatment is a fruit acid mixture that contains 17 types of natural extracts, that exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time
With summer approaching, it's only natural that we ditch our socks and sneakers into something more weather-appropriate like a pair of flip-flops or sandals. But there's a price to pay for comfort especially if you're prone to dry and cracked heels and let's face it, it isn't exactly a pretty sight. You could opt for pedicures at a salon, but that could burn a hole in your wallet. Or DIY with a help of a pumice stone at home, but that can be cumbersome if you are looking for something fuss-free. That's where the Baby Foot Peels come to the rescue. According to Good Housekeeping, Margarita Lolis, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New Jersey, says, that "Baby Foot is essentially a chemical peel for your feet."
So how does this product work? "Baby Foot Peels is a foot care product designed to slough dead skin cells off your feet over a period of a week or so. It’s a fruit acid mixture with 17 types of natural extracts," according to Totally The Bomb. The Baby Foot's website notes that it "exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time," because of its natural extracts and acids.
It's a really simple process. The box comes with two plastic bag booties with the gel that contains the natural extracts that are to be used only once. These booties fit up to size 13 for women, and size 12 for men, so if you are worried about your wide feet, you don't have to, as these booties will easily accommodate them based on your foot size. Once you get your hands on these bad boys, the rest is easy peasy.
As per their website, all you have to do is wash your feet first. Make sure that you don't have any dirt on them nor have any nail polish. It would be advisable to wash your feet with soap. Next, soak your feet in warm water for about 15 minutes. Then dry your feet before slipping them into the gel-based booties. Wear these for an hour, and here's where the fun begins: you can catch up on your favorite shows, read a book, or mindlessly scroll through your social media feeds, or whatever floats your boat. If you do have to move around, do place socks over these booties, to avoid slipping and falling flat on your face or base.
Once the golden one-hour is up, rinse your feet once again. It is pertinent for the treatment to work that you soak your feet in the water, preferably warm, every day. It takes anywhere between 5-7 days for the magic to unravel. However, there is a word of caution. If you happen to be pregnant, nursing, please avoid this. If you are diabetic, please consult your physician. Also, if you have an open wound or sore, do not use them till your feet heals. Because this exfoliator contains natural extracts like lavender, orange, grapefruit, sage, and chamomile among others, do ensure that you are not allergic to any of them.
You will not see immediate results, so don't be disappointed, but you will be blessed with baby-like feet a while later. However, it is advised to wait a while—2 to 3 months— before you try this on again. People who used this left rave reviews, so you know why this is flying off the shelves. Although currently unavailable, you can purchase them on Amazon.
One user shared: I was so skeptical about these at first. But now Ive ordered them twice and theyre absolutely fantastic. Admittedly, the first time you use them, it makes you wonder if they work at all because literally, NOTHING happens at first. Just be patient. After a few days, all the dead skin will just peel right off easily. Definitely a little odd to use, definitely a little odd concept, but gets my feet softer than a professional pedicure at a fraction of the cost.
Another simply stated that while they normally never reviewed products, they were super impressed by this one. Therefore, they left a simple, yet effective "WOW. Just WOW!" review.
