This review is actually really late, I used this product at the end of May this year, but seeing that it’s almost summertime I thought I would recommend this product as I just bought it again. I intend on giving an updated review in the next few weeks.
I picked up the Skin Logic Skin Laboratory Foot Peel at Clicks. I had never used a foot peel before and I didn’t know anyone who did so I was very sceptical about the product. I chose it because I refused to pay over R200 for Milky Feet and not know whether or not it would work on my feet. The Skin Logic Laboratory Foot Peel was only R80.
It contains 15 plant extracts and claims to remove dead skin cells in a week. The package is small and contains two gel filled booties and two stickers. On the package it only stated to cut open the booties put them on and I had no clue what to do with the stickers. So I just threw the stickers away. I later found out on line that I was supposed to use them to secure the booties from slipping off my feet. I put socks over them when I had it on.
Shamefully I’ll admit, I have a problem with my feet, in particular my right foot. My left foot is not bad, but my right was thick. Fortunately I’ve never had cracked and bleeding heels nor that ugly yellow skin or dark discolouration from dirt.
The gel was cool and I had my reservations about it because other than the coolness of the gel I felt no effect on my feet. No tingling feel or burning, nothing. I had no idea if it was working or not. I left it on longer than needed and washed my feet. Although Skin Logic Skin Laboratory does not state to not use creams and lotions for a few days after using the product, I did not put any lotions or creams on because I did some research on line and other similar products stated that lotions should not be used or it will stop them from working. I did not want to risk it, after all the packaging did not state what to do with the stickers.
According to Skin Logic Skin Laboratory, you can expect the skin to peel within a week. My skin started peeling after two days and lasted nearly two weeks. The process of peeling was nasty. It came off in big chunks and little bits and my skin peeled off everywhere on my feet. It peeled at the bottom, on top, my heels, even between my toes. Do not worry, I’m nice enough to not put a picture up that will scare you. I could not wear sandals while it’s peeling because dead skin got everywhere on the floor if I did. Don’t get me wrong I was absolutely happy that it was working, but it’s just not a pretty process.
On the packaging it is recommended that if your heels are thick you should use a pumice stone to help remove it faster. I wanted to wait as long as possible before using a stone to see how much it took off before I did. I waited too long, because by the time I did the peel was done, and it hadn’t removed all of the dead skin on my right heel. It removed all the dead skin off my left foot and about 70% off my right. For me that was fantastic because I struggled so long with it and the peel was a great starting point to get the dead skin off. I had a blister on my left foot from the Spar ladies race earlier in the month, and when the peel was complete, there was no sign of it.
I’ve had given myself many at home pedicures since and my feet are looking better than they’ve have for a long time. The Skin Logic Skin Laboratory Foot Repair was a great starting point and the home remedies helped maintain and remove the left-over dead skin. I am so close to having perfect feet and doing it again will definitely get me there faster. I would definitely recommend it to others, just do it before the holidays if you’re playing on wearing sandals.
