    I Tried Baby Foot's Cult Fave Foot Mask And The Results Are Utterly A-peel-ing

    Trust the review photos, trust the process, and you'll reveal your *softest feet ever*.

    You've *no doubt* read about Baby Foot ($25 on Amazon) on BuzzFeed dot com the website before (and seen some amazing shedding photos from reviewers all over). Well, gentle reader, allow me to add my voice to the chorus of satisfied customers.

    Dead callus skin peeling away from author's heel

    I am an aggressive walker and don't always wear the most ~sensible shoes~. I lotion regularly, blah blah blah, but all that does is really just soften — not remove — the hardened skin that's been building up for ages. So last year while working from home, I decided to take my own advice and give Baby Foot a try. And boy oh boy did it work. Years' of calluses peeled away, and my lotion routine got *more* effective for daily maintenance.

    So a few weeks ago I decided to do it again before at-home pedicure and sandal season commences. I was already starting with softer feet thanks to last year's Baby Foot, but winter dryness and another layer of calluses was ready to go.

    Here's how you use it: Cut open the top of the booties (they're like a loosely foot-shaped bag full of exfoliating goo), pop them on your feet, and sit with them on for an hour.

    And remember that the goo *is* a chemical exfoliant, so read the ingredients for potential allergies, and definitely *don't* use Baby Foot if you have any cuts or open blisters. It WILL sting. FWIW, I have sensitive skin, and these don't bother me!

    Then just wash your feet off well and live your life. A few days later (5–7 days, but it varies depending on your skin and whether you soak your feet!) you can just sit back and watch your dead, dry skin fall right off.

    Yes you *will* be vacuuming up a lot of dead skin pieces during the shedding process. But you'll also reveal softer, smoother feet with no more cracked, dry heels or super thick calluses.

    And you don't have to take my word for it — Baby Foot's Amazon listing has TONS of somewhat gross, but deeply satisfying reviews (and photos!). Let's check out a few together:

    The results are very ~a-peel-ing~.

    So if you've been wanting to try it for yourself but just...never got around to it...NOW is a great time. Get a pair of Baby Foot booties from Amazon for $25.

    Brb, imagining how amazing it would be to use Baby Foot on Hobbit feet after the journey to Mordor.
