Milk added to your foot bath along with oils and essential oils is supposed to be great to soften feet.

Ok, probably not the best way to introduce myself to the forum, but anyway...
My feet are just horrible at the moment - I would be too embarrassed to get a pedicure. I hate filing them, I get bored, I never feel that they are perfect afterwards, and the results only last so long (whch I know is true for anything).
Anyhow, I was at the drug store this evening and I saw a Vichy product - Podexine Callus Corrector - so I decided to give it a try. It apparently contains salicylic acid and "anti-rubbing spheres to limit friction between the skin of the feet and shoes" (whatever those are, I'm suspicious). So, if I am dedicated enough to use it every day for a week, and if the results are impressive, I will let you know.
I wish I could get my hands on the pedikur product someone mentioned upthread - nearly instant results is exactly what I am looking for.

I have horrible feet due to work and standing on them for hours on end. The one thing that has really helped is Pedikur. I get it from QVC in England. It's originally from Germany and it melts dead skin cells. You soak some cotton wool in this liquid put it on the affected areas of your feet and wrap them in clingfilm. Leave your feet like this for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the severity of your feet and then with the plastic knife scrap your dead skin cells away!! It's fab as it can't hurt your feet like some of the grater style files. It also comes with a repair cream which prevents skin rehardening!
I'm down to using it twice a month now but when I started my feet wouldn't see summer because they looked so horrible.
This is a highly rec product - even my pedicurist can't believe it and has ordered some for use in the salon!!
If anyone really wants some I could order from QVC and send it on - I'll only charge whatever the postage is. Let me know!!

I recently purchased the Geligne Moisturizing Gel Terry Booties from the Shopping Channel for $15. It's so moisturizing. I noticed a difference after the first use. Very Happy

I read raves on MUA about Avon's Cracked Heel Cream and mine just came in - picking it up Sunday. I'll let you know how it works. If it works well it's definitely probably the cheapest foot cream at the cost of 2.99CDN a tube!

I didn't read all the posts on this thread, so if this has been mentioned, overlook it Very Happy

I have used, ( and this reminds me to dig mine out again 0 ) some 70% Glycolic Acid I bought off Ebay very cheap, and it worked very well on that tough foot skin. I just experiment on the time, usually about 5 mins. the first time, with a good moisurizer afterwards, then work your way up next time. About once a week.

I've never taken care of my feet nor used any foot file nor got a pedicure, which means my total expense spent on my feet in the past 20+ years is 0. Why should anyone on earth dig up this thread and let it catch my attention???? Mad

Ok, can anyone tell me where I can get this Diamancel thing CHEAPEST (somewhere ships internationally)? Please help!! Laughing

I just checked. It should be our new fellow member Emma_Jane who dug up this thread.

Emma_Jane, I didn't mean to blame you. Wink It may be high time for me to start taking care of my feet. Very Happy

Recently, I've been using candessence body polish on my feet while I'm in the shower, and it makes my feet look incredible! It exfoliates and moisturizes, so by the time I get out of the shower I don't need another moisturizer, I just put on my sandals and go! You can get the body polish at candessence.com for $5, and you can choose from a lot of yummy scents. (I always go for chocolate...^-^)

I usually don't want to spend time with a scrub and then wiping it off and washing/drying, AFTER a bath. So, two products I absolutely love, I just rub the cream in after my bath, on dry feet, and then apply cotton socks. Hours later, smooth as silk!!! NO cracked dry rough spots anywhere!
BBW Heel of Approval, and philosophy Sole Owner. I switch these off, rotate using them, they are both terrific. BBW on sale is $6 and will last forever. philosophy is $14 and will last forever, too.

Yen- those sound just like the ones I got from SDM, but you paid a lot less ($35 at SDM).
Aren't they great! I just love how soft my feet feel after wearing them!

I have the diamencel #11 also and think it's great. i used to see a podiatrist about once a month. now i only see her occasionally (3-4 times a year)-- usually because i haven't been using my foot file regularly and let the callouses build up and I don't have the patience to work at them Smile

i would have been interested in trying the luxor that Carrie mentioned because of the second coarser side, but the site has discontinued carrying them...

someone (sorry forgot who) wanted to know the cheapest place to buy. the cheapest price i found was at a large SDM (or pharmaprix for us Quebecers Smile ) -- think it was $42 (this was about 4 years ago). and i used my optimum points so it was actually free -- my favorite price Smile

Thanks Liz! I'm glad it's helping! I wear work boots 8+ hours a day & the polish is really making a difference for me too ( Embarassed suppose I shouldn't rave about my own stuff should I? Laughing )

HI, I haven't read through all of the responses but someone posted a review on mua for flexitol? (I think that's what it's called) she seemed to have good results with it. the full name was flexitol heel balm.

Yeah, they are great. I often forget or is too busy to moisturize my feet. Now I can just slip those booties and my feet feel amazing afterwards. Smile

1. L'Occitane foot cream is good.
2. Wear socks before you go to bed.

Hi CK
Beauty.com & drugstore.com carry diamacel files, but I don't know if they're the cheapest. Ebay is always worth a try. HTH.

Thanks kls. I think I'll try ebay. Very Happy

I'm thinking of getting Classic Buffer #10 or Tough Buffer #11. How are they different? Which one works better? Confused

I have 2 diamancel files. One is a #10 which is a buffer, the other one is a #20 which is a lot coarser & used to get rid of callouses. HTH.
While we're on the topic of products for feet, I wanted to tell everyone about some cool socks I found at Walmart. They're called MedPeds & they have aloe vera moisturizer right in the sock! In the wintertime I wear these under my regular socks (when wearing a heavy shoe or boot). They're not miracle workers, but I found my feet feel softer at the end of the day than if I wore a cotton sock by itself.
