Footner Exfoliating Socks

I have recently had the opportunity to try out the Footner Exfoliating Socks*.  They promise to reduce hard skin and cracked heels with one application, and remove unwanted dead skin from your feet.  Super, just what I need to get my feet ready to show to the world in strappy heels at Christmas parties.  I won't traumatise you with before photos (well they are not that bad, but you get the general idea), but suffice it to say that there is a lot of hard and dry skin around my heels and on the balls of my feet.
Footner Exfoliating Socks
Footner Exfoliating Socks are easy to use, simply remove any nail polish from your feet, cut the plastic socks open at the top and slip your feet into them.  The socks are coated on the inside with a gel like substance.  There is an adhesive patch at the top of the socks which you can use to hold the socks onto your feet, which I didn't think worked that well, but the instructions do tell you to slip on some socks over the exfoliating socks which helps to keep them in place.

The Footner Exfoliating Socks then need to be worn for 60 minutes.  The gel is quite cooling on your feet, but the socks worn over them helps to keep your feet warm.  Once the 60 minutes is over, simply remove the exfoliating socks and rinse your feet to remove the gel.  So far so good, although at this point there was no difference to my feet.

What happens after that is that between 1 and 7 days after use the hardened and dead skin begins to peel (so make sure you are not planning to go to any parties during this time as you don't want your feet peeling everywhere).

This is what happened:
Day 1 - no peeling.
Day 2 - still no peeling.
Days 3 - 5 - still nothing.  What's going on, I want something to happen.  I'm getting really impatient here.
Day 6 - Hallelujah and urgh gross, my feet have now started peeling mostly on the top of my feet and also around the heel.  On the down side I am going out to a Christmas party tonight so I won't be able to wear my heels because I don't want anyone to see my flaking feet.
Days 7 + 8 - my feet are full on flaking now and it's pretty gross.  I need to wear socks all the time so my feet don't flake on everything.  I hope the final results are worth it.
Day 9 - my feet are still flaking but not as much as the last couple of days.
Day 10 - the flaking has now stopped and my feet definitely look better than they did originally.  All the dry hard skin around my heels has disappeared and the top of my feet look and feel really smooth.

Overall, I am really impressed with the results.  There was lots of peeling and flaking, so you need to plan when to use this product carefully as you wouldn't want to do it close to a holiday or any other time when you would need to bare your feel in public.  It has just freshened up my feet and they definitely look and feel less dry, even under my heel which is usually really dry and hard.  This is a great treatment, that I would use 3 or 4 times a year to keep my feet looking and feeling great.

The Footner Exfoliating Socks can be bought at Boots or Superdrug and cost £19.99 for 1 pair which fit all foot sizes up to 10.5.
