FOOT PEELING BOOTS – GENIUS OR JUST GROSS??

We have all seen the adverts for these foot peeling socks / boots all over the place. I have to admit I was really intrigued.

The adverts make them look amazing with people pulling sheets of dead skin off their feet to reveal beautiful baby soft skin underneath.

As usual, I was skeptical. Surely it can’t be that easy to get beautiful soft feet? (not something I am naturally blessed with unfortunately).

But I knew I had to give it a go. I brought Footner Exfoliating socks from Boots. I chose these for no other reason other than I was too impatient to order ones available online and wait for delivery. They cost ยฃ15 for one pair of socks.

I put these on that afternoon. They are a plastic bag in the shape of a boot and they have a lining which is soaked in the magic product. The ingredients contain various acids so I assume this is what causes the peeling.

Once the boots are on they are quite loose on your feet so I put a pair of socks over mine so that the solution was in direct contact with my skin. You then leave them on for an hour.

Once an hour is passed you rinse the solution off and that’s it. Done. I am very impatient and wanted to see peeing instantly but no, nothing. My feet look no different at all.

Now the waiting begins. It says it will take up to 10 days for my new feet to appear.

Here is my diary of what happened – (apologies for the gross photos)

Day 1 – 3 Feet feel and look exactly the same as before. No change whatsoever.

Day 4 – My feet feel very dry and tight today. Desperate to moisturise but you are not allowed too. No peeling yet.

Day 5 – OMG the tightening and dryness is getting worse and I really want to smoother my feet in cream. No peeling.

Day 6 – Still no sign of any peeling. These are obviously a complete waste of money. I read online that soaking feet in warm water helps bring on the peeling. Soak my feet for an hour. Nope, still no peeling…..!

Day 7 – Slight flaking on side of big toe. Is that it? Really??!

Day 8 – Its been over a week now. Check the bottom of my feet and something is happening….. there are like bubbles of skin. The top layer is lifting off hurrah ! I resist the ย urge to start ripping it off.

Day 9 – Its happening, I am shedding !! I soak my feet again for an hour and then I peel my feet for about 2 hours. Its bliss. Its coming off in sheets like the adverts show.

Day 10 – All dead skin is now off after a bit more peeling today. The bottoms of feet were the first to go then the toes and tops and round my ankle.

I have to admit I am shocked how well this worked. I am so impressed and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time peeling my skin off its so satisfying. There is no irritation, no soreness it’s totally pain-free. The only uncomfortable part for me was the dryness at the start but its worth putting up with for the end result.

I now have soft, fresh lovely feet!

The only other thing to be aware of is that your feet dont look pretty whilst the peeling process is happening so I was having to wear shoes to cover my feet when I went out rather than flip flops or sandles.

You have to wait 6 weeks before you can do it again but I will definitely be using these again. They really are a genius product.

Have you tried these? I would love to hear about your experience.

Thanks for reading,

Louise

  1. I have seen these everywhere and really wanted to try them! I jut thought the peeling was for the adverts, and wouldn’t actually happen. I don’t know how you resisted not peeling and picking them! After you did it, could you still wear socks, or did you go barefoot for the 10 days?xo

  2. I really want to try! The weather is so warm at the moment though I don’t think I could keep my feet covered up all week, but I might give it a go before my holiday in September! X
