To be honest, this is about as unglamorous as beauty gets, but for feet prettier than you’ve ever had before, it really does work. I had to try it on Mr BBB as I don’t really have enough dry skin to warrant a major exfoliation, but without over-sharing, his are perfect candidates.
You wear the (unattractive) socks for an hour, then wash off the residue. Then absolutely nothing happens. About five days later, you start shedding skin like a snake (I’d advise socks in bed so your bed isn’t full of flakes of skin) as a major peel begins. Mr BBB had a lot of dry and hard skin, and so the peel was dramatic, but it’s slowly stopping now and revealing a pair of completely different feet! Almost all of the hard skin has gone around the sole of the heel, and everywhere else is completely free of dry skin. I think it will only take a bit of filing and moisturising to make them perfect.
I can do nothing but highly recommend this treatment if your feet have got a bit gnarly – it should definitely be in a pre-holiday beauty regime. Ten out of ten. I should warn this contains lactic and other acids and enzymes so if you have very sensitive skin, I’d avoid.

I’ve just rung my husband to tell him were getting some for him this weekend! Thanks for the review. Not glamorous but very helpful!
So amazing, this is sort of what beauty is about sometimes, the hidden tricks to reveal actual beauty (or well.. foot beauty!) rather than enhancing covering or adding!
What on earth is the active ingredient in those?!
Do be careful. This is nothing new in Asia. When it came out a few years ago it was big. Then people noticed it’s not really doing the feet any good in the long term! Not to mention they are around £9 only!
Thanks for an interesting review. As you say, this isn’t maybe the best option if you have sensitive skin. Dr Scholls For Her Cooling Peppermint Foot Lotion is a good milder option for rough dry skin on the feet.
That skin shedding thing put me off. Yes, I know our bodies shed skin cells continuously, but there’s something OTT sounding about this treatment. I think I’ll stick to my micro pedi gadget.
Interesting too the comment about it being half the price in Asia.
Never mind men, I want these for myself. Sounds like a genius idea for me, and fuss free too
