This blog is also a place to talk about gross things right? Right... A few months ago I've received some peeling foot masks from Dresslink... I was super curious about trying something like this! I'd seen it all over the internet, and I was super excited when I laid my hands on these!
Yes, you red correctly --- peeling foot masks. These masks promise to make old skin magically fall off about a week after you apply the solution. In turn, baby-fresh skin is revealed and all that nasty, dry, dirty, rough and gritty skin is no more! I have been kinda scared of trying them out. But I finally did it and I'm going to share with you my experience.
I'm not sure I did everything correctly because, you know, everything is in Chinese. But I did my best.
When you open the package, you find inside two plastic socks filled up with some weird liquid. You open these up, you stick your feet in it, put a sock over and you leave it in for around an hour.
The liquid smells like alcohol, or some sort of disinfectant. It doesn't hurt at all, it just feels cold and squishy. You can definitely walk around the house with these on your feet.
During the days after, me feet felt really dry and one week later the skin started to come off! It's crazy! You are not supposed to peel it off -- although it is incredibly satisfying to remove chunks of dead skin from you feet! After a few days all the skin of my feet had fell and they felt amazingly soft! Even the skin around my toes came off! It's strange and amazing at the same time! It took a while for all the skin to fall off, but when it did, my feet felt super nice and smooth!
I did some research: I was worried about what kind of chemicals were in this thing -- the ingredients are all in Chinese! But apparently it's some flesh eating enzymes. Completely harmless and safe!
I just want to warn you that your feet will be peeling off during a few weeks, so don't do this if you are expecting nice sandals next weekend!
