A Refreshing Find: PediSpa Gentle Exfoliating Foot Mask!

There are times when a pumice stone isn’t enough for my feet. I need something more to keep my feet looking smooth, but I really don’t have it in the budget (time or otherwise) to get a full-on pedicure. What is a girl to do? ūüôā

Well, my friend Jamie over at More Than Turquoise introduced me to a product called Baby Foot in a recent blog post¬†¬†of hers. I was excited to find out that there was a deep exfoliating foot product out there; however, I didn’t want to bite the $25 bullet just yet.

Soooo…..I went to my local Target to see if they had something similar. Voila! I found a comparable product for about $9, and its called Pedispa Gentle Exfoliating Foot Mask.

I opened the package, and there were 2 plastic booties inside. You have to use scissors to cut open the tops of them so that you can slide your feet in like so:

Now, you have to wear these booties for 60 – 90 minutes, so I wanted to secure them on my feet while I put them up (and surfed the net while watching Star Trek…my spa moment, lol) A bit of scotch tape did the trick;-)

It was easy to slip on and wear. Yes, the feel was a bit weird at first, wearing wet plastic on my feet, but I overcame the feeling after about 5 minutes. As the active ingredients started to work, my feet didn’t feel tingly, but kinda cool and minty. Nothing irritated my feet or caused me discomfort. After about 1 hour and 15 minutes, I decided to take off the booties and rinse my feet. This is what they looked like immediately after the treatment:

Now, here is the trick: the treatment really starts to work 4- 7 days AFTER application! The ingredients work to soften and remove callused skin. So for the next few days, I waited for my feet to start peeling…and I waited…and then, at day 5, this began:

Yep, the callused area began to peel (no pain, just a bit crusty, haha) and shed almost like dandruff. It started with my heels and then the sides of my big toes. I wore boots to church Sunday so that my peeling heels would not show, lol

After day 8, this is what my feet were doing:

There is a little more peeling to be had, but I think we are toward the end of things.

Am I satisfied with this product’s performance? I am. I knew what to expect, and I think that I got my $9 worth. The Pedispa foot mask melted my calluses and revealed baby soft skin, something that I don’t think a pumice stone could have done ūüôā I’m not sure how long the treatment’s effect are supposed to last, but I suspect it will be for a few weeks. And then I will do it again!

Have you tried this product or one like it? I would love to hear about your experience below in the comments!

Signing off with happy feet,

Dee

  1. OH MY GOODNESS, This works really well. At first, I didn’t see anything happening after almost 5 days but lord let me tell you, it was scary to see all that skin coming off. I’d say it peeled for almost 2 weeks and now it’s exactly as it states… I now have baby feel.. So soft, now hard skin nothing, this is GREAT!!
