I work in a biochemistry lab, where I’m on my feet just about all day running experiments. My feet feel the exhaustion at the end of each day and look pretty beat up on a regular basis. A couple of months ago, I treated my feet to a little at-home spa experience: the Grace and Stella Dr. Pedicure Foot Exfoliating Mask*.
The foot mask promises to deliver “smooth, soft and clean looking feet after just one use.” It’s packed with tons of ingredients to exfoliate and moisturize feet, such as lactic acid, glycolic acid, and several citrus oils (which explains the citrusy smell). Just like a sheet mask for feet!
Instructions say to first clean and soak feet, then put on the booties and secure with the supplied tape. I showed off my little booties in an Instagram story, and kept a screenshot.
After the photo-op, I put on a pair of socks to secure the booties a bit more. Wear time is an hour, during which I mostly sat on the couch. Walking around is very odd because there is a ton of liquid in the booties that squishes while moving. I felt like I was walking through mud.
I rinsed my feet after removal and noticed my feet felt fairly vulnerable due to the extreme amount of exfoliation. It wasn’t until two days later that I noticed peeling. A lot of peeling. I had almost forgotten I had done the foot mask, so I freaked out temporarily. This peeling lasted about 3 days before completely revealing my super smooth, soft feet. I won’t share any photos of my feet, but you can find some samples on their site here.
I’m not sure foot masks are something I would add to my routine for good, but I very much enjoyed this fun treat for my feet. The Dr. Pedicure Foot Exfoliating Mask is available on Amazon or the Grace and Stella site.
Have you ever done a foot mask? ↓
