Does the "Horned Hoof" brigade still meet here??

I think that was what you were called - cracked heel remedies etc.

I used to read and laugh! Now I need advice....

What is the best reasonably priced foot cream for heels that are beginning to show their age, but are not totally cracked yet?

Thank you

Boots own works for me. Boots have a special foot dept.

You do own a Peg eg, don't you?

CybilLiberty Tue 29-Sep-09 19:40:04

Yes I was going to say am no longer horned of hoof since THE MIGHTY EGG came into my life

Milliways Tue 29-Sep-09 19:42:25

Er.... no! blush

Should I? Are they really good?

As I say, feet have been fine up until recently, but I think my body is beginning to fray grin

The EGG will sort you out. But get it on ebay, they are pennies on there

May I ask a Ped Egg q?

My heels aren't cracked but have lots of dry skin on them, used a Ped Egg but now a week later it's horrid again and rough as sandpaper because of the grating - where did I go wrong?

oh the ped egg was shit on my tree bark feet

Milliways -my feet were fine until I hit 40 and then my heels became "horned hooves".

I took a peep at your profile and see that you're "a woman of a certain age" too -blame it on that.

Flexitol is the cream I use -not cheap but does the job.

CybilLiberty Tue 29-Sep-09 19:45:42

Strictly, keep grating!

CybilLiberty Tue 29-Sep-09 19:46:08

And cream inbetween

CNyle Tue 29-Sep-09 19:46:51

btw is this a hefflump trap

NorbertDentressangle Tue 29-Sep-09 19:47:00

oh, and I'm too scared to grate my feet like a piece of cheese (just too weird IMO hmm) so can't comment on whether that works

cocolepew Tue 29-Sep-09 19:47:21

I read this as camels hoof and had to peek in.

Hello cybil, I appear to be stalking you.

StrictlyAvadaKedavra Tue 29-Sep-09 19:48:37

More grating? sheesh. Had a pile as big as an Italian restaurant... blush

Took flipping ages and made my hands hurt [wimp]

CayPeag Tue 29-Sep-09 19:50:11

cheapest solution? Lots of vaseline and cotton socks to sleep in. Works a charm.

smugmumofboys Tue 29-Sep-09 19:50:49

Flexitol is the only thing that works.

After a vigorous grating. grin

Lilyloo Tue 29-Sep-09 19:53:12

My ped egg works when i can be bothered to use it

Milliways Tue 29-Sep-09 19:59:55

Cynle? What heffalump? [confuffled emoticon]

I have been on MN for many moons and thought of you lot when examining the feet!!

Trying to remember where I saw Ped-egg on special last week (whilst shopping with DD for Uni stuff).

LynetteScavo Tue 29-Sep-09 20:02:58

For perfect feet you need to use a ped egg, a pumice in teh shower, with lots of soap, and foot cream containing urea.


And you cnat' just do it onece, you need to use the cream every day for a week, and then every other day after that, ped egg weekly.

Milliways Tue 29-Sep-09 20:09:17

This one is £2.50 on ebay! Is that the right one?

Milliways Tue 29-Sep-09 20:48:09

<<Stamps horned hoof before spending her £2.50>>

Lilyloo Tue 29-Sep-09 20:49:37

Yes that's the one
