Generally I have smooth feet as I keep getting pedicures. However past month and half have been a nightmare. Finding apartments and then moving into one. All this left me with no time for myself and resulted in horrible looking feet. By horrible I mean really dry, rough heels and I had to hide them by wearing closed shoes all the time.
I took my roughed up feet as the perfect opportunity to try out Babyfoot which was sent to me by their PR team. Babyfoot is a Japanese product tried and tested by bloggers worldwide. The results are satisfying for most but the process.. well not exactly beautiful.
The product comes with two lavender scented gelled booties and a sheet of tape to secure the plastic booties at ankles.
Super simple! Just soak your feet in water for about 10 – 15 mins. Once done, pat them dry and wear the booties. Secure with the given tape and do not move! Though the product doesn’t mention to stay still but I would certainly prefer not moving in those plastic booties so that the product works its magic.
The product mentions 60 minutes but as I was watching a movie, I completely forgot to remove them until it was 90 minutes. No harm to the feet and no itchiness whatsoever. I felt like some oil was applied on my feel and slightly slimy as I removed the booties.
Day 1: Slight white marks on the heel and sole of my feet.
Day 2: Gets a bit freaky as the dry skin starts detaching itself.
Day 3: More dry skin peeling off, I covered my feet all the time during peeling process as it looks a bit weird.
Day 4: Slowly tugged out the peels to reveal soft skin beneath.
Day 5 : complete peeling was over and now baby soft skin revealed. The package mentions that peeling process may take upto two weeks, maybe that’s for worst case scenarios.
Post peeling care
It is recommended to not use any lotions and even scrubs for feet as all dead cells are already removed in peeling process.
The key to peeling is soaking your feet everyday post application for atleast 15 minutes as this softens the skin and helps in removing the dead skin.
Product is recommended to use once in every two months.
I really liked the product except the peeling process that really is unique and a grossly satisfying experience. The product certainly delivers the promise of baby like feet. This revolutionary product is designed to soften the toughest of heels. What makes it so effective is the addition of keratolytic ingredients such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, alcohol & glycolic acid.
Babyfoot is available on Souq.com and in all leading drugstores & hypermarkets.
Ps: I took pictures of peeling process but I don’t want to share them as its not really a appealing sight)
