I am very busy right now and have little time for posting but I need to share a flash post very quickly with you. It’s just the beginning of summer so you still have time if you are interested !
During my Japan adventure, I spent a considerable amount of time in the drugstores, checking out what products appeared interesting to try.
These are the drugstore products that I am actually trying, the foot peel I am talking about is the one on the left :
Today I just want to share my Foot Peel experience with you because this thing is so worth it that it would be sad to pass on it.
My feet are one of my weak points, specially the left one – I have no idea why but it doesn’t look sexy at all. Since I just can’t stand people touching my feet (ticklish), pedicure is a no for me. Despite trying foot products and scrubbing I was not happy at all with the way they looked underneath to the point where I try my best to avoid wearing very open sandals.
I tried this peeling mask last Sunday, I thought that with a bit of luck my feet would have finished peeling by the time I leave to Spain (tomorrow, hence after 10 days).
This is what happened : on Sunday evening 10pm I put on their plastic socks and then put on thin but very elastic cotton socks on top of them so that they don’t move. Be careful you may break the plastic when putting them on, the plastic bags contain quite a lot of liquid. Left them for one hour, not the most pleasant sensation when you walk with these so better stay quiet. Since they were so big for me, while wearing them I pressed them from time to time just to make sure the liquid inside the plastic was well distributed and touching the skin. I took the Large size (I am 39-40), I should have taken size M.
After one hour I removed these plastic socks and washed my feet as instructed, simply with water and soap.
Three days after I thought that I had forgotten to do something because it wasn’t peeling at all but on the forth day it suddenly started, I did not take pics because it’s just simply disgusting but their advert pics are real. I didn’t have that much thickness to peel off but they still completely peeled.
The biggest peeling action happened during the forth till the sixth day, you cannot wear open shoes because it just looks horrible. Also, you better sleep with socks otherwise your bed will be covered with huge flakes of dead skin.
It started peeling at the bottom sides of the feet, then underneath and also the toes (yes, even underneath the toes!). When I thought all was gone, on the eight day I peeled the top of the feet. The sides are still peeling a bit but it’s quite discreet, no worries wearing open shoes.
Since the skin of your feet gets thinner, you may feel some discomfort after peeling, I didn’t. If you have very hard parts you may need several ones to get very smooth results. After one, I noticed a great improvement and I feel totally happy wearing nice summer sandals or being barefoot on the beach … where I’ll be as of tomorrow by the way 🙂
I will need to do another one when I am back because my right foot is looking nice and soft, but the left still needs some help. As they recommend it, I’ll do it with a two week interval.
It does work, I am actually very surprised. Just wanted to share just in case you are interested to do it. I think the price is totally correct, for 25$ it’s a must-have for those of us who need it 🙂 Maybe you already know about this depending on where you live, but here in Switzerland this is totally new and unknown to us !
