AMW Reviews: Foot Appeal Foot Peeling Mask

I have really sexy, baby feet right this very moment! 

Oh, the confidence I exude ha?  Just so you know, I deserve all the arrogance because I've been suffering peeling and scratchy feet for the past 10 days!  If you're thinking I have some sort of foot disease...let's not get there!  It's not!

I was sent Foot Appeal Foot Peeling Mask months ago!  I did not test it right away as the photo itself on the packaging stopped me!  I was waiting for my birthday to pass...

The day after my birthday, March 1st, I gave this a test right away, it did nothing right after usage!  But the real story began 2 days after....

(Note from author: Do not eat while you read this post, you'll see a lot of foot-related photos! LOL)

Pros
  • Packaging is great, you can be assured that everything is sealed in freshness.
  • Has manufactured date and expiration date included on box.
  • Very easy to use, mess free.
  • Foot mask can fit foot sizes 5-9.
  • The roughest part of my heel has finally "softened"!
  • Both feet does not look as dry as before.
  • No pain.
  • Can exfoliate calluses.
  • Feet stays moisturized and looking good even a couple of days after.
  • The old skin gets removed without pain.

Cons
  • My feet are peeling like crazy for more than 10 days!  It's actually embarrassing when people stare at your feet.
  • It's pain-free but it's itchy!  
  • I got tempted to peel off "hanging" dry skin which does not look good at all!
  • Had a bad case of too much scratching and it turned out this way on 3rd day...(note: the redness was gone the next day, it was my fault I scratched too much!)

Overall
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate this product, this is actually super effective as after more than 10 days, I am finally seeing the baby pink feet I deserve!  This is the only foot mask I've tried that seriously removes old skin (including calluses) without pain but you do have to wait for 7-10 days!  

The reason why I had a hard time using this because I am a sandals-wearer and I meet a lot of people on a daily basis, if I can get away without the "itch" and people staring at my feet, this is actually a product I wouldn't mind using again.

Tips
from Foot Appeal
  • Simply wear the foot peeling mask and leave it on for about 60-90 minutes.
  • Rinse carefully and results will begin to show via peeling in 2-7 days.
  • The skin peeling effect and duration may vary among individuals.
  • To speed up process, soak skin in warm water.
from AMW
  • Do patch test prior to usage to make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients.
  • Do not use foot mask if you have open wound.
  • Follow the time frame, do leave the product for 60-90 minutes, no more, no less!
  • I suggest users to wear shoes instead of sandals when the peeling starts.
  • If the skin around the feet gets too itchy due to flakiness and peeling, soak it in warm water or gently scrub with a soft cloth instead of your fingers.
  • Wear socks at night to prevent skin from getting all over your bed!  Yes, it does leave "dead skin trail".
  • Try not to scratch too much!
  • Do not forcefully remove dead skin as it may scar you.
Will I repurchase?
Only when I'm starting to get badly callused feet. 

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who doesn't mind to have their feet peeling like crazy as long as the end result is great!

Where to purchase and how much?
Priced at Php599.00 (approx $14.00), I am not sure how many packs are there in one box.  For more information on Foot Appeal, email them at customercare@imf-wellness.com or call them directly at  735-6787.  The product is now avaialble at Rustan's Essenses, Pioneer Center Supermarket, Unimart Supermarket, Cash and Carry Supermarket, ROX, and at Watsons.

The gorgeous foot mask packaging


All you need is a pair of scissors and carefully cut the dotted lines
as shown on photo below

The mask and the plastic are conveniently attached together
just wear it like you would normally wear socks!

Tighten the plastic making sure the mask won't fall off, tape it!
The tape comes with the mask.

Wear socks and leave it for 60-90 minutes!
I left mine 60minutes because 
it's the first time for me to try foot peeling masks.



Here are photos to show what happened to my sexy feet :)

As shown with the arrow, the big toe mound area is starting to peel off

Though the base of my feet looks normal,
the visible part of my feet is starting to peel off


After 5 days, the peeling gets bigger and its getting more visible


On the 10th day, the peeling is at its peak showing new skin


After leaving dead skin trail on both office and home,
it takes a lot of patience to wait for the old skin
at the heel part to be totally gone.

Today...
Exactly 2 weeks after (14 days)
sorry I marked the photo wrong, it's 14 days!

Finally, pinkish and gorgeous-looking feet without it shying away each time someone looks at it! :)
Now, would you like to stare at my feet?  I'm all ready! :P

Would you dare use Foot Peeling Masks?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  8. Sesame, I know what you mean< i actually knew what I'm getting into, but for the sake of review and for the sake of "trying" and being "brave" I've done it! :)

    AnnaYJia, if your skin cracks a lot and its painful, try to use a foot healing lotion first, I've seen them around Watsons, those specifically made for dry/cracked heels, heel them first before you do something drastic such as peeling!

    Xin, I know!!! It's worth 2 weeks of ugly feet! :)

  11. wow!!! very effective! but the peeling takes too long. i wonder if wearing closed shoes/heels would scar my feet since there's more friction.. I'll probably try this before holy week just to make sure. hope you can keep us updated on how long it stays baby smooth. =)

  12. Tartlove, the peeling period depends on each individual! I think I haven't peeled kasi for my whole lifetime? So it took forever? So far, it did not scar my feet at all as long as you don't peel them and scar yourself :) It's safe naman! So far, it has been 4 days, its still baby smooth! I'm actually rethinking, during the peeling period I WAS SAYING HUGE NO NO to doing this again, but seeing my baby smooth heels and feet, it looks like its worth the sacrifice!

    > It's pain-free but it's itchy!

    It's normal effect when you have your skin peeling done. If you'll try to have a whole body skin peeling with other skin clinic, you will still get the same result of having itchy skin and fever-like temperature feeling. When it's itchy, never scratch it, cause it may just lead to redness or it may wound your skin.
