A Do South® Review
words: Catherine Frederick Images: courtesy Leuke Citrus Sprayer Set
I received Baby Foot™ from my BFF as a gift a while back and was immediately intrigued. She’d already tried it and was raving about her results. And who doesn’t want baby soft feet, just in time for summer? Count me in!
What’s the deal?
I love a relaxing pedicure, but let’s be honest, I have neither the time nor the budget for weekly spa treatments, so I was excited to try this product out at home!
What’s the claim?
Using no files or razors, Baby Foot™ claims to remove dead skin cells from your feet that have built up over time, giving you healthy, beautiful feet after a peeling process takes place. You will receive 2 booties filled with a solution containing 17 types of natural extracts. Cut the booties along the dotted lines and secure your feet inside with tape (included). Wait one hour and wash off excess gel. Fruit acids allow the dead skin cells to peel, alcohol makes the dead cells soft, and salicylic and lactic acid stimulate a flaking effect. Skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. The peeling process usually begins after 3-7 days and can take up to 2 weeks to complete.
What’s the cost?
You can purchase direct at Babyfoot.com for $25, but it’s also available from several other retailers such as Target and Ulta.
What’s the verdict?
Does it work? Yes, it absolutely does. But, be warned. The peeling process is totally disgusting. It took about 3 days for my peeling to begin, but once it did, it was crazy! Quite literally entire sections of dead skin were coming off my feet, and small flakes were everywhere – for DAYS. There is no way I could have worn sandals during the process. That said, in the end, it was totally worth it. My feet were so soft and smooth, just like a newborn baby and better than any pedicure I’d ever had. I would highly recommend it, just be prepared to keep those feet undercover for several days while the product does its work. Also, your feet may be a bit sensitive for a few days after the peeling process, after all, you do have baby soft feet again!
