Here in Australia Autumn is finally starting to settle in and for me, that means foot peel time! I’ve bought a couple of cheaper foot peels off of eBay before, some worked okay, some were pretty awful, but this… THIS… aside from the fact that it was under $2, made me so sad.
Unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures of the process or the packaging but as you’ll see there’s almost no need for it.
This was TERRIBLE.
First, after soaking my feet in warm water for about an hour, I opened the packaging.
Argh. Okay. So I ran around grabbing some supplies. Which ended up being grocery bags, cling film and packing tape.
I picked up the now dripping booties to find not only was there not a foot hole and they needed to be cut, but they had weirdly fused together so I ended up with a small tear in one of the booties. Argh again.
After makeshifting a plastic over-boot for my feet to soak in I tested the pH of the remaining liquid with my cheap pH strips.
So I sat and waited, and played some Animal Crossing to pass the time, and washed off the liquid.
Nothing. After knowing the pH I’m not surprised there was no peeling but there was nothing. No moisturising, no dryness, not a hint that I had even soaked my feet in anything.
So, lesson learned. These suck.
