Calluses and dry, dead skin on your feet are no walk in the park. Maybe you’ve accepted your foot fate, or maybe you’ve tried every remedy in the book to achieve silky smooth soles to no avail.
There’s one thing you probably haven’t tried—although odds are you’ve heard of this cult-status skincare product, on sale right now at QVC. Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel uses a potent mix of plant-based ingredients to slough away dead skin in (strangely satisfying) sheets, leaving your feet baby soft, just as the name promises.
When this radical exfoliant first hit the scene, the premise sounded pretty crazy. So crazy it might actually work—and it did. Soon, legions of fans started jumping on the Baby Foot bandwagon, including one of our very own Hook’d! hosts, Sandra Vergara, whose feet were wrecked from running around New York City.
Vergara called the two-week shedding process “nasty,” but after all the snake-like shedding stopped, her feet felt and looked brand new. She was, it’s safe to say, hooked.
Curious about Baby Foot? There’s no better time to test this far-out exfoliant foot peel than right now, while you can save a few bucks on QVC. The site is sweetening the deal by offering an extra $10 off for first-time customers using the code WELCOME at checkout, too.
And if you don’t want to pay all at once, use their Easy Pay option to fork over three monthly payments of just $7.50 each. It’s pretty painless if you ask us—and speaking of painless, so is the process of losing the top layer of your skin. Really! Here’s how it works.
Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel arrives as disposal booties that are pre-filled with a powerful concoction of natural exfoliants including salicylic, lactic and glycolic acids. Slip them on your tootsies, let them soak for an hour, then prepare for a mini metamorphosis.
Much like a chemical peel for your face, it takes a little while for the results of the foot peel to kick in. Over the course of up to two weeks, though, the skin on your soles will start to peel off like an onion. It starts around day five, and by day 14 the entire exfoliation has usually run its course.
The process might not be pretty, but the results are beyond rewarding. The surfaces of your once rough, cracked feet are replaced with that soft, supple skin that’s been a mere memory for so long.
“I was pretty skeptical at first,” wrote one Baby Foot fan, who is all of us in this scenario. But after a week and a half, “my feet literally started shedding layers!,” they continued. “I am hooked!”
Another bought the foot peel for a friend who’s diabetic, and reported, “over the next week all that hard skin just fell off, leaving her with true ‘baby feet’! Product was not messy, very safe, easy to use and had a slight mild smell.” In fact, that smell is lavender—maybe not the pleasant fragrance you’d expect from such a strong product.
For best results, the company recommends popping on the booties, keeping them in place with included adhesive tape, covering the booties with socks, remaining seated for an hour and working your way through Netflix’s new releases (okay, we added that last part).
After letting the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel thoroughly absorb, wash your feet with soap and water, then wait for the magic to happen. You have nothing to lose but layers of dead, gross skin!
