This week, I boldly stepped where only a few other bb feet have stepped before... into the world of Baby Foot. Read on!
Baby Foot is designed to do exactly what the name implies - make your feet baby soft! But how?
Baby Foot is the 2 hours treatment that exfoliates your feet using only gel from natural plant extracts. No more creepy skin shaving tools at a questionable pedi salon (One of my top reasons for loving BF). Instead, all you have to do is slip your feet into the plastic Baby Foot 'socks' and sit back and relax.
So, what did I think? Let's start from the beginning...
- First, I had a shower and hopped into my pjs - so far, so good. My feet were nice and clean and I could pull my pants up and out of the way to leave the gel socks to do their thing.
- Then I got myself settled on the couch and propped my feet up. To use Baby Foot, you cut the top of the two plastic socks off, then slip your feet inside. The socks also come with small plastic tabs that are like sticky tape, to tape the edges of the 'tube' part of the sock up, around your ankle. This helps all the gel stay inside.
- The gel is a little cold when you first slip your feet in, but it becomes unoticable after a while. Now, you probably want to be home alone when you do this, because you might look a little odd for two hours with these plastic socks on. Especially if you try to walk around at all (it's kind of like skating across your floor and takes quite a lot of core strength, if you ask me! It isn't recommended, but I got hungry, so a trip to the fridge was in order...) I also took full advantage of the opportunity to look slightly odd and even did a Cellilux mud mask at the same time! I'm pretty sure I looked like an alien. But, I digress...
- After two hours, skate yourself over to the shower or bathtub and remove the socks (put them straight into the bin as it's not recommended getting the gel on any fabrics or anywhere else). Then rinse your feet with warm water. Be careful not to rub your eyes if you hands have nay gel on them either. You might also want to note, the gel can cause your pedi too peel, so wait until you are about to do your nails again, or remove the polish before you start.
- Now, play the waiting game. It can take up to three days for your feet to start to peel and usually the process will end around 10 days later. I had done some researching prior to using Baby Foot and read many, many reviews - I wasn't too sure what to expect! The one tip I got from these were; the more baths you take, the more your feet will peel. The water will help to loosen the dead skin and make it easier to massage and rub it off (only use your hands to do this, never use a foot paddle or those creepy skin shavers I mentioned previously). So, if you aren't seeing results, soak your feet.
And my feet? I have seen a little peeling here and there and after a few baths and a week later they are certainly softer than before. I would say this product would give the best results on feet that are in desperate need of some TLC. Google images will show you what I mean! But that being said, I certainly feel a lot more comfortable and confident slipping into my favourite sandals (pictured below) next week when I hit the beaches of Spain! (SO worth looking like an alien for a few hours!)
And at only $29.95 per pack, I'd much prefer to spend my cash on Baby Foot than on a pedi at a salon for $40+!
Have you tried Baby Foot? Will you? Do your feet need it? Be honest and let me know! - Lauren
