Summer is on its way! The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer and flowers are blooming all over the place! Summer time means, shorts and skirts, tanks and tees and of course, sandals. Sandals? eek! That means exposing my feet which have remained comfortably hidden in sock since September! Like many women, I suffer from dry, callused feet. They are cracked, peeling and definitely not suitable for flip flops. No matter what cream or file I use, nothing seems to change their state. About once or twice a year, I’m luckily enough to get a gift certificate to a spa for a pedicure, but often those treatments do minimal changes to my feet. What is a girl to do?

To test out this product, I gathered a few of my best girl friends, a bottle of wine and some gorgeous nail polishes and we set to work! The product was very easy to use. I was impressed by the step by step instructions and the simplicity of the product.
The socks were very easy to use. All you had to do was open the package, remove the socks, slip them on your feet and seal the socks with the sticker provided. If you wanted, you could add your sock on top to provide added security. I love the simple, mess free application. It made it very convenient to do at home and it allowed you to continue on with your day (or party!) while waiting the 60 minutes for the application to work its magic. There was a tingling sensations felt on your feet during the application, which told me that ‘something’ was happening! With a good wine, some munchies and a good dose of girl talk, the 60 minutes flew by in now time!
We did encounter a few minor problems during the application process. The first thing we noticed when opening the socks was the smell. Instead of a fruity, flowery, spa-like smell, the sock retained a slight chemical smell. It wasn’t overwhelming or unbearable, just disappointing. When you are experiencing a spa like situations, I like it to be appealing to all of my senses. Another problem we had was the sealing sticker. Once we got the socks on our feet, we began searching for the sticker. It took us several minutes to locate the sticker because we thought it was the logo on the sock. Once we located it, we had a difficult time removing the sticker and found that the residue on the sock was stickier then the actual sticker. The addition of a few extra stickers would have been beneficial to create a comfortable feel. Besides those few minor details, our experience was rather pleasant.
After 60 minutes (and a bottle of wine), we removed our socks, washed our feet, and examined the results. The first thing we noticed was how soft our feet felt. There was no major difference in the toughness of the calluses or the deepness of the cracks, but overall they did feel softer. After reading the instructions, we learned that ‘real’ effects would occur a few days later. I found this hard to believe. I thought what I obtained at the end of the application was what I was going to get. The next day, I didn’t notice any change and started to believe that my initial thoughts were correct. By day 4 post application, I began to notice some flaking and peeling on my feet. On day 5, I was shocked at how much skin was peeling off. It was coming off in chunks! By Day 6, after a shower and a good rub with my towel, I examined my feet to find them baby soft. Although the process was messy (with all of the peeling skin), the end results were amazing! The Exfoiliating socks left my feet soft, removed most of the stubborn calluses that most salon’s had left behind, and healed the cracks on my feet.
This is not a one day treatment! Although the application itself only takes 60 minutes, you don’t achieve soft, supple feet until 5 days post application. If you are looking for a quick fix before an
event, this is not the product for you. If you are looking for a product a that works at removing calluses, softening skin and healing cracked heels, then I truly recommend this product for you!
