Footner fail

(22 Posts)

It's 5 days since I used footner, for an hour, and my feet are dry, but not peeling, and just as bad as before. They are awful, thick skin on my heels and balls of my feet.

Are my feet too minging even for footner? Has it ever failed anyone else?

Give it another few days I’d say.

took mine about 7-10 days to start peeling

You need to soak your feet. Do it for at least fifteen minutes each night. It'll speed it up. Mine didn't start to peel until around day 6, and it was little bits at first, and then... woosh. All at once.

Change the sheets on your bed.
Guaranteed that you will wake up tomorrow ankle deep in flakes.

Thanks. I've been soaking. I'll try changing the sheets!

I recommend swimming for it. I got out and that evening my feet peeled off.

Sadly my feet defeated footner though as all the hard bits were still there, just one layer less after.

I went swimming on Thursday. Relieved someone else's feet were too bad for the miracle cure! 😕

Mine took ages too, and then happened really slowly. I was fed up of picking dead skin from my feet! I have a micropedi... they work so well for hard skin

I too thought it had failed, it only started on day 8 or 9 but was very effective then. Have patience!

I bought the amazon version and it failed for me. My feet did peel apart from the thick skin on the heel, which dried out more and looked and felt worse

It only works when you've completely lost faith in anything ever happening. Then you’ll think you’re safe to go swimming or wear a pair of sandals or just quickly change your socks at the gym or something and both your feet will just fall off.

I once had a bath about a week after doing a footner. I came out and stepped out of an entire shoe of skin. It was glorious and I felt like a snake.

Mine didn't do anything until I took my sock off in my DB's immaculate flat while talking about it and a mountain of foot flakes fell out. His gf never forgave me (they've since broken up...I think it's unconnected).

It didn't really work that well for me though, the tough skin on my heels still remained. I find a very regular routine of the dr scholl foot stuff works best but they're still not great.

My feet did peel eventually, but not the calloused hard skin around my heels and the balls of my feet. The only areas that peeled were OK in the first place! I felt very cheated indeed grin

Cleanerswin Sun 27-May-18 21:12:20

Mine didn’t peel either, just went flaky for a bit.

Glitteryfrog Sun 27-May-18 21:21:18

Give it a week. I'm on day 7 and I'm flaking all over the place (Or at least into socks)

HunterHearstHelmsley Sun 27-May-18 21:23:31

I have terrible heels and Footner always gets it off! Around 10 days to start is usual for me.

Mum2jenny Sun 27-May-18 21:25:36

It worked for me, but it does take time. I tend to leave it on for more then an hour, around 75 mins typically

Does it hurt when you first use it?

BitOutOfPractice Sun 27-May-18 23:10:20

Soak. Soak. Soak some more.

HildaZelda Sun 27-May-18 23:13:40

I'd love to do it but I have a tattoo on one foot and I'm afraid in case that might come off! shock
