If you dislike seeing feet, exit out of this article immediately. This comprehensive review has plenty of feet pictures to back up my findings. There are many other articles on this site you will enjoy more than this one. I almost hate admitting this, but the bottom of my feet can get rough. My feet are a part of my body I’ve always enjoyed so I really dislike when the skin on my heels starts cracking. It turns something I like into something I want to hide rather quickly. Thanks to the wonderful Egyptian Magic, this happens less often now. If I apply a little after a thick foot cream, my feet usually stay moisturized. There was a three-week period just before Christmas when my kids were not with me. That was the longest three weeks of my life. They get regular eczema so I packed my only tub of Egyptian Magic at the time for them. While I will never know why I did not immediately purchase another tub, I can say even Egyptian Magic takes time to nurse feet back to health once they’ve been neglected long enough.
After reconnecting with Egyptian Magic at Christmas time, I used it after every shower but my feet were not recovering as well as I wanted them to. For those who have really dry, cracked feet, you know prevention is more effective than repairing. I decided it was finally time to try the Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel. Reluctantly, I shelled out the $25 this product charges.
This is something I’ve wanted to try for a while, but the price tag gave me reasons to pause. Spending $25 on something that does not work would irritate me, but falling in love with an expensive product would also irritate me. It was as if not trying it was the best option (and the one I recommend for anyone with similar feelings on the matter). The problem is my feet needed help, and I wanted to try the original foot peel. Back in 1997, this was the only peel on the market. First does not always mean best, and I plan to try others in the future to see how they stack up.
The product comes inside a sealed, silver bag, which gives me astronaut vibes. It looks like the meal packs they eat in space. There is a manufacturer and expiration date printed on the package.
A set of plastic booties is inside the bag. Once you open the bag, the moisture in the booties will get exposed to air. That makes these a single use product.
Anyone familiar with moisturizing foot masks will notice these are the same type of booties. There is a sticker to adjust them so they should stay on your feet once you place the sticker in place. If you move around a lot, the sticker can loosen.
Here is a picture of what my feet look liked before I used these. As you can see, my heel was very dry. Some of the cracking healed with two months of Egyptian Magic use, but a little of it was still there.
The instructions suggest applying them to clean dry feet, wearing them for an hour, and washing your feet again. I always like to go a little over what all instructions recommend so I kept mine on about 15 minutes longer.
I took this picture before I sealed it down so I could show how big they are and how much room you have to work with.
The picture sans flash did not capture the Baby Foot logo all over the bootie so I grabbed another one.
This picture was after I sealed them to show that while I was still comfortable (did not seal them too tight), they would easily hold all the moisture in as long as I did not move around. My plan was to lie down for the hour, but my boys had other plans. They needed me twice while I had these on. The stickers held up the first time I got up and started moving. As the second movement required a trip down the stairs, one of the stickers did not make it. I was still able to prevent the fluid inside from leaking after that, but I had to sit up. Relaxation time was over.
I applied the foot mask on February 26th. This was two months after nursing them back to health with the Egyptian Magic so they were not as bad as they were at Christmas time.
I had some light peeling on March 5th, which was seven days in. The instructions state peeling should start in about a week and should last for about a week. The amount of peeling I had on the 5th was so minimal that I did not even take pictures. Then, on the 6th, the peeling just took off. It was like the car that goes from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds. My feet looked insane.
For someone who loves to pick (and might have an undiagnosed condition for that), I found letting this peel on its own extremely difficult. I also really dislike gross things and peeling my feet thankfully falls into that category.
So, this peeling is 100% the peel doing its work. It took about a week from start to finish before my feet stopped peeling.
When the peeling was over, my feet looked like they did before my 3-week break from Egyptian Magic wreaked havoc. I learned two things from this experience. The first and most obvious is this peel really works. If you’ve wanted to try it but were reluctant for fear of it not working, I think it will work for you as well. My most valuable lesson is to never go without Egyptian Magic. Since it came into my life, my feet are in better shape. It takes time to whip them back into shape whenever I stop using it. My plan is to keep them this way so I need less peels in the future.
For those who want to try a peel but are still reluctant to spend $25, I’ve got you covered. Last year, I tried a similar peel that works about the same as this. It was also the first foot peel I had ever used so I’ve only tried these two so far. I was not blogging when I used them so I do not have a review. Although, I already have backups and will create a review with pictures and everything when the time is right. My feet obviously do not need it, and I have a new product to try once they do. That peel is the TonyMoly Foot Peeling Shoes. Those are only $6.50! As a drugstore brand, they work with the $3.50 off $15 coupon Ulta almost always has. They are also regularly discounted and are buy one, get one 50% off now.
