Hello loves and welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! So this may be TMI, but I have some dry feet. Not only are they dry, but they are pretty calloused. It’s not that I walk around bare foot a lot, my feet have just always been this way.
After spending way too much money getting regular pedicures or trying the latest foot creams, I decided to finally try one of those foot masks that make your feet shed all of its dead skin after a few days.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m totally in to Korean skincare. I am obsessed with the brands Tony Moly and Skinfood, as they are fabulous and available at my local Ulta. Well, Tony Mony has a foot peeling mask!
Bonus to that, this mask only costs $6.50 and is comparable to Baby Foot, which ranges in price from $15-$25. So you’re getting a high quality product for less than half of the price of the mainstream one. Before I get in to my experience with this, I first want to go over the specific claims of this mask.
- Make your feet smooth from your toes to heels
- Liquid product removes built up keratin
- Peeling will occur naturally 4-6 days after use
- Contains vegetable ingredients
- Step 1: Put sheets on your feet
- Step 2: Keep both sheets on your feet and wait until your skin absorbs the liquid (approximately 1 to 1.5 hours)
- Step 3: Take off the sheets and wash your feet until the peeling liquid is thoroughly rinsed away
- Step 4: In 4 to 6 days, the dead cells will naturally start falling off from your feet
Precautions: DO NOT try peeling off skin forcefully.
First of all I had one heck of a time getting my foot in the booties. They were pretty small and my wide feet did not like the opening. If you have feet larger than size 10 (US) I would be cautious when purchasing this product.
After putting on the booties, I secured the tops of them with the sticker provided. I then plopped my butt on the couch, turned on The Vampire Diaries, and left on the booties for 1.5 hours. I decided to leave them on for the longer amount of time, as I had some thick callouses. If you have very dry or rough feet, I would say you should leave them on for the full 1.5 hours, just so you can reap the full benefits.
The serum didn’t irritate my feet or cause any weird reactions. After my time was up, I headed to the bathroom to rinse off the excess serum. My feet felt weirdly cold at this point and they stayed that way for a couple of hours after taking off the mask. Not a big deal. After rinsing, my feet did feel smooth and hydrated.
Then it was like clockwork. No joke exactly 4 days later my feet started to peel. We’re not talking like a couple pieces here and there, my feet were peeling in SHEETS. The tops of my feet, the bottom, around my toes, everywhere that had the mask was peeling. I will insert one picture to show you how much came off of ONE foot, but limit it to one picture because the rest are kind of gross lol.
I tried my hardest not to forcefully peel off, as instructed, but once you get it going you just can’t stop. The thinnest skin peeled first and it took a few more days until the calloused areas really started to peel.
After about two weeks your feet will have totally shed the dead skin and you will be left with super soft feet. My feet feel even better than they usually do after a pedicure and the results have lasted longer. I highly recommend this product and I know that after sometime I will go this route again versus spending $30-$40 on a pedicure at a nail salon.
Have you tried any foot peeling shoes? What were your results? Let me know in the comments!
