Should I Try This: 'Baby Feet' Fruit Acid Peel

Posted by Alexandra C. | Tuesday November 5, 201327 comments

One of things you may not know about me is that I have the world's ugliest feet. I really do. I hate wearing socks and in my infinite wisdom, I tend to buy the most impractical, uncomfortable, cheap shoes ever and as such my feet have developed a nice leathery feel to them. My heels have this great, hardened quality that just begs to be shown off in sandals. Ladies: I can rest assured that I will never be the object of some weird foot fetish serial killer.

It's fall now, which is awesome for me because I can wear boots 24/7 and my feet can never see the light of day. However, before I know it spring will be here again and my poor, hideous feet will need to be put back in sandals. So, in an effort to have socially acceptable feet, I've been looking for foot scrubs, buffers, peels, sanders, you name it so that I can avoid pubic humiliation and shame. 

You know I love me some crazy weird Asian beauty products. So when I came across this product called 'Baby Foot Peel' I was all, "WHAT THE WHAT?!'. Baby Foot basically peels off the layers of your skin, like a snake and what you're left with is super soft, new baby-esque feet. It runs for about $25.00. 

I know. I'll let you have a minute to take all this info in. For someone like me that has layers upon layers of disgusting hobbit skin feet, this may be a game changer.

Upon further research, and reading reviews from a few sources, this product seems to actually work. But here's the thing: it's kind of weird and disgusting. I hesitate to show you photos of it, so I found a few of the less graphic ones, though be warned it's on the NSFL (not safe for life) side:

To use Baby Foot, you essentially wrap your foot in a plastic bag that contains a fruit-acid solution and leave it on for an hour to let it do it's bidness. According to beautysage.com, which sells the product, Baby Foot uses '17 different natural extracts that penetrate the dead skin cells and dissolve the Desmosomes (adhesive fibers) that are between those layers—allowing the peeling process to begin gently and naturally'. Most of the reviews I read commented that it takes about two days for the peel to start it's work but when it does, the flood gates open and watch out cause your skin is gonna start apeelin'. Which ironically, is pretty unappealing (get it?). 

My question to you chicks is this: should I try this? I'm a little on the fence about the safety and general ickiness involved here. Though, if it can solve my feet issues - I'm totally all for it. What do you think? Is it worth $25 to test it out? Or should I hold off and maybe just stick with a pumice stone?

Okay so I totally got a free sample of this from my nail girl. Though it is a different brand, this one is Korean, it is the exact same idea. I am so excited to try it out after you posted this article. I will post a review after I try it out!
