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

Prepare yourself for some major peeling goodness.

Posted on

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.

1. Make sure you pee, despite the fact that you just peed ten minutes ago in fear you might need to go again.

2. Bring some water, in case your fear of needing to pee wasn't overwhelming enough already.

3. Pick a book, because you should really do something productive.

4. Okay and bring your laptop, in case you get bored of the book.

5. ... And bring your TV remote, in case you get bored of the laptop.

6. Have a towel on-hand to dry off.

7. And pick out some fluffy pink pyjamas, for that extra comfort.

Better safe than sorry — 30 minutes can be a long time, guys.


Time to pop these bad boys on.

The instructions said to leave them on for 30 minutes. I left them on for an hour — because thug life (and also, really-rough-feet-and-slightly-creepy-delight-in-seeing-extreme-peeling-life).



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.
