It's great! I did mine on Monday and I'm in full on peel at the moment. Dp says it's the most disgusting thing he's ever seen grin

DaisyChain87 Sun 07-Jun-15 18:19:31

Oooh please explain! What do you do and how long does it take to clear up? smile

Ha! I did my second one last night so the peeling hasn't started yet, cannot wait! grin

Thank you! I might have a look. Need to sort my trotters out ASAP...

They're like little plastic socks filled with some skin killing napalm gel.
A bit fiddly, I use a bit of sellotape to keep them on then put a pair of my own socks on so I can walk around.
The peeling is brilliant.

It sounds disgusting!! I've ordered the cheap version from Amazon to try. Does anyone know if its any good?

I did this last Summer. It worked brilliantly, but within two frets my feet were back to square one. And I used the Footner daily cream after too.

This sounds amazing!!!

I've only used Footner, I use Flexitol heel balm too.
My feet get bad really quickly, I'm always trying something on them.

Buttwing Sun 07-Jun-15 19:38:11

There's been loads of threads about footner and I think the general consensus was that the ones from Amazon were just as good.
I've been peeling for two days now soaking your feet or having a bath really helps the peeling along.
Most of mines come off now just got the stubborn bits left- ball of foot and bottom of big toe. My heels have all come off once the peelings finished I will start with the flexitol.

Have just done my first one too - love it! 5 days was Friday and started peeling on cue. Seems to be nearly done now! Very pleased! DH is unimpressed at the dead skin we have around the house though blush

I have the cheap amazon one but have been too scared to try. Might have to give it a go

I got some cheap version from Amazon, did it Sat so waiting to peel. So far skin is just cracked on the top of my foot.
But my tights aren't sticking to my heels this week, so it's better that way. smile

CremeDeSudo Tue 16-Jun-15 19:35:17

Can someone link to the cheap one on amazon pls?

Absolutely no pain at all, only immense satisfaction grin

Mine never did the swathes of skin thing. But the dry skin did gradually rub away over a couple of weeks as I dried my feet after showers etc. It did help the thick ridges of dry skin and they fell loads softer. I'm going to have another go soon to finish the job.
Have fun!

LittleMissRayofHope Tue 16-Jun-15 19:57:44

I have a pack of footner and haven't used it yet. Am a little bit scared of the gross peeling phase and people saying they have lizard feet!

Wagglebee Tue 16-Jun-15 19:57:57

I just found a box of it in the bathroom cupboard. I genuinely did a tiny whoop to myself. blush

Going to do it tonight or tomorrow. It'll be my third time in about a year and a half.

Wagglebee Tue 16-Jun-15 19:58:50

That's best bit littleray grin

Seriously it looks far worse on pictures than it is really and you don't feel a thing.

lucysmam Tue 16-Jun-15 20:25:57

I have some cheap ones on their way.

What cream or whatever are you all using when the peeling's finished happening?

& how often do you re-do them or is it a sort of as and when thing?
