Would out of date Footner still work?

Found some Footner for sale dead cheap - but it's very out of date (2013)... Is it worth it, or would the acid not work any more?
Or might it become dangerous in some way (clueless as to how any cosmetics of any kind actually work ingredients wise)
Advise me, wise women smile

I am nor sure what footer is, so probably can't be much help. In general I tend to ignore (or at least, treat loosely) the best before dates on cosmetics, unless they smell really funny.

I first read your thread title as out of date footwear grin

PS if it's still on sale it can't be that dangerous otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to sell it..?

Out of date footwear grin

It's for sale on eBay, not sure the law is strictly applied there...

Btw, it's a foot mask that makes all your dead skin fall off!

Yeah! Do it! Those chemicals are so strong I would hope they had some kind of chemically reactiony thingy and be even stronger. So do it and post pics grin

I also demand pictures of the giant skin strips which are going to fall from your feet. It'll be like the Hulk of Footner's after so long fermenting!

Thanks, not sure you've got my best interests totally at heart... wink

Just bumping in case any scientific type may be on lunch and able to offer advice?

Trouble is, you have to buy 7 at a time, so they'd be cheap if they work but very expensive if they don't.

You can get cheap copies of it on amazon that work well instead. I'll try and find links

Just checked and the ones I've used have been Purederm and L'biotica.

Sixinabed Thu 25-Feb-16 14:30:01

And did they work ida? I've looked at those and they get mixed reviews on Amazon.

Sixinabed Thu 25-Feb-16 14:30:45

Sorry, you said they work well - would you recommend one over the other?

I have amazing ones form Korea and China from eBay for £1-£2 each! Just search for rice vinegar foot peeling masks. That type of thing. Amazing and never had an issue with them

IdaJones Thu 25-Feb-16 14:53:58

I think they both worked as well as each other.

Coldwatebay Thu 25-Feb-16 15:19:32

I use purederm. Bulk buy from eBay. I find it as good as footner

Sixinabed Thu 25-Feb-16 17:55:26

Thanks all! Off to eBay now smile

Have ordered some from Hong Kong - 5 packs for £5.55.
When researching yesterday one offer for genuine Footner, at £13.70 for a pack, gave a per 100g price...
£13,700 per 100g. Now sure, there's manufacturing costs etc but they are blinking creaming it.
Hopefully mine, at a mere £1,111 per 100g will do the job.
I may revive this thread with pictures in a few weeks ...
