So the lovely folks at Grace & Stella Co. sent me a Luxurious Foot Peeling Mask to review along with a special link which gets you get 60% off full price.) Grace & Stella also offer a subscription service where you can opt for them to send you a foot peeling mask at specific intervals for a discounted price.
First, we should find out exactly what this “foot peeling mask” entails.
“Grace & Stella’s Foot Peeling Mask is designed to remove the unsightly, dead skin cells on your feet that build up over time and can contribute to numerous problems associated with the soles of your feet. In many cases, feet become cracked and painful from the accumulation of dead skin….Our scientifically formulated product contains 17 types of natural extracts which exfoliate and moisturize at the same time. The principal ingredient of our Foot Peeling Mask is fruit acid which is very gentle, when compared with other acids. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath. After peeling, your feet are reborn just like a baby’s foot, giving you healthy, beautiful feet.”
I’m not sure I want to have a “baby’s foot” but the rest sounds fabulous. My feet get a bit worse for wear during the summer when I’m constantly in flip flops and sandals so I was excited to try this out.
So first I washed and dried my feet, then put them inside the plastic booties that came in the package. The product inside felt cool and pretty pleasant. I was worried something called a “peel” would feel harsh or uncomfortable but it was just fine. I left the booties on for an hour. I removed them, washed my feet with soap and cold water and then examined them. They definitely felt softer than when I started. I have sensitive skin and was not irritated at all by the foot peel. The instructions stated that I’d see dead skin cells continue to peel from 5 to 7 days and could possibly continue to peel for up to two weeks. I definitely noticed more dead skin coming off during the week after. My feet aren’t weren’t in horrific shape to start with but they definitely improved after the peel.
Verdict: Like at Full Price; Hit with Discount!
Overall, the foot peel did help my feet quite a bit with no irritation to my skin, so I feel like the package delivered on its promise. The only thing that makes this a “like” instead of a “hit” is that the regular cost of this foot peel is $24.95 which is for me quite high. My feet aren’t in horrific shape so I probably wouldn’t be willing to pay that much for one mask unless it was a very special occasion. However, if you follow this link you can get the foot peeling masks for just $9.95. At that price point these are a total hit and I recommend them. You can also get a discount on the price by signing up for Grace & Stella Co’s subscription service.
