    I Tried This Insane Foot Peel Kit And Here's What Happened

    Prepare yourself for some major peeling goodness.

    I've always had pretty rough feet, and recently, I thought it was time to finally give them some loving. After a quick search on the internet, I purchased a Japanese foot peel called Baby Foot.

    I can't say I paid too much attention to the instructions, but the images on them were really convincing me I was about to unlock some ~serious magic.~

    I read somewhere that soaking your feet beforehand enhanced the effects — and what sort of person would I be to turn down some extra peeling goodness? With that, I set about to soak my feet. Can I just say, committing to sit in one spot for 30 minutes really needs major preparation.

    One last look at my feet before I kissed those callouses goodbye for good! (Hopefully).

    Time to pop these bad boys on.

    Then it was time to wait. One day passed, two days passed, three days… still nothing. I was starting to get worried. Then finally, on the fourth day, the peeling began.


    And it didn't stop there.


    P.S. — socks will be your best friend (WARNING: extreme peeling ahead).

    Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. But I have to say, I was pretty happy with my new feet.


    Feet aren't that gross — post-Baby Foot feet are even less gross. Plus, I dig peeling foot skin off almost as much as I dig pimple popping and earwax extractions (don't lie guys, I know I'm not the only one). Some of the callouses on the balls of my feet are still there, but given this is a home job, I'm pretty pleased. Overall, I would do this again (this could be a yearly thing), but probably best to save this for winter time.
