Treat your feet to this smoothing mask
I’d never consider doing an intense foot peel at the height of sandal season, but that doesn’t mean my feet couldn’t use a little TLC after the past few months spent predominantly in flip flops. Nightly foot cream (in addition to regular pedicures) just hasn’t been cutting it, so last night I busted out Patchology’s Best Foot Forward Softening Foot & Heel Mask—and it couldn’t have been easier (or more effective!). Best of all, it only takes 10 minutes to get smooth, baby-soft soles.
This treatment is basically as simple as putting on a pair of socks. The booties come pre-filled with a blend of coconut oil, shea butter and other soothing, smoothing botanicals (which make for an amazing scent). Made of a foil similar to “space blankets” to help hold in warmth for enhanced smoothing-serum penetration, and lined with what feels like the same material used in some facial sheet masks—the booties secure with an adhesive strip so there’s absolutely no mess or leakage. I slipped them on and started an episode of Younger—and carefully waddled into my bathroom once it was done. (Note: I had a hard time getting the booties off, so you may want to have a pair of scissors handy.) But the extra effort was worth it because my heels and feet were so plump, smooth and soft, as if my soles had never set foot on the ground. Then I massaged the extra product in and put on a pair of cotton socks. I was a little nervous that the treatment might mess up my pedicure polish, but nope—all is still intact.
I’m really glad I have another treatment stashed away in my beauty closet, because this really does the trick—and it will surely hold my feet over until my annual fall major foot peel.
