WARNING: This is going to gross you out. A little late to be warning you since I started the post with this pic. But if you are one of the unlucky ones like me who have terribly calloused/dry/cracked feet, you HAVE to read this post.

I have REALLY dry skin. And I HATE lotion. Which is not a good combo. Lotion makes me feel so oily and dirty that I rarely wear it. I wish I could be one of those people that slather it on right out of the shower, but I am not. Which probably does not help my situation. But…I NEVER walk barefoot. It grosses me out…even in my own home. I always have socks on as soon as I get home and take my shoes off. I keep a pumice stone in my shower and use it almost daily. And once in a while, I put aquaphor on my heels and sleep with socks on. But still…my feet feel like daggers (as my husband would say…ha ha)! Which is so unfair because his feet literally feel like a baby’s butt and he does NOTHING. SO UNFAIR!

That is until I tried Baby Foot Foot Peel.

I bought Baby Foot Foot Peel probably over a year ago and after hearing from everyone how gnarly it is, it just sat in my makeup junk drawer unused. And then a PR company reached out and offered me a sample. I took it as a sign and just went for it. And I’m so glad I did! But first, I scoured the internet for before/afters and reviews because I wanted to know how bad it was going to get.

So first things first…you need to block at least an hour+ of time where you can just chill with the boots on your feet. So make a comfy “nest” as we like to call it (which is really just propping yourself up with pillows and blankets) and plan on some “me” time. Make sure you have your phone and extra towels on hand so you don’t have to get up and walk around while you have the boots on.

For best results please follow the steps above and the tips below:

  • Remove nail polish from toe nails.
  • Wet feet thoroughly (I soaked mine for 30 min prior). This will soften the skin thus allowing maximum penetration of the gel.
  • Cut along the dotted line and place foot in the bootie. Repeat for second foot.
  • Secure booties with attached adhesive tape as indicated above (this is not indicated above).
  • Soak feet in the gel for 1 hour (I left it on for an hour and 15min) as instructed on the back of your Baby Foot pack to allow to gel to be absorbed.
  • Place a pair of socks over the Baby Foot plastic and leave on for the duration of the treatment.
  • Remove the packs and wash feet gently with soap.
  • Soak your feet in water daily to activate the peeling process. This is essential – water activates Baby Foot.
  • Dead skin cells will start to peel between 3 and 7 days after initial application.
  • Do not forcibly remove dead skin cells when peeling begins. Peeling amount and time may vary from person to person and peeling can take 1- 2 weeks to occur. If your feet have a dry skin build up, we recommend a second application of Baby Foot 4 weeks after the first application.

I followed all of these steps EXCEPT the most important part of soaking my feet daily. I am not a bath person so I had hoped just showering would be enough soaking. I waited and waited and still NOTHING at day 5. Then at about day 7 or 8, I saw a bubble under my skin and my feet started cracking/peeling. Unfortunately I did not take before/after pics…I only took these during. But these pics definitely give you an idea of what to expect. It was fascinating. At first I worried that my skin would feel that one raw way like fresh skin under a blister feels…but it did not. It just revealed softer smoother skin. Not baby butt soft like my husbands feet, but a HUGE improvement. It was fascinating and I can’t wait to do it again.

    I have been thinking about doing this (and really SHOULD do it) since I first heard about it a couple years ago. I really should get around to it….. in the winter (now!) would be best to spare anyone from seeing the peeling in sandals.
