Exactly two weeks and one day ago I used one of the Happy Feet Soft Touch Foot Peel Masks for the first time from a company from Amazon UK called N.O.P Cosmetics. I get hard skin on the heels of my feet and I absolutely hate how dry and ugly they look and how rough and rubbery they feel – my boyfriend thinks he is hilarious and likes to call me ‘leather feet’ which I don’t find one bit funny at all! HA! I was so happy when I was asked to review the Foot Peeling Masks on my blog and I put them on as soon as they arrived because I was excited and interested to see if they would really work and help to make my feet feel soft and smooth again and remove the hard skin from my heels.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The Happy Feet Soft Touch Foot Peeling Mask is a foot mask rich in Pomegranate Oil and helps to moisturise by softening hard skin and healing and soothing dry, cracked heels. N.O.P claim the foot masks are 100% natural and organic skincare products but the ingredients list is jibberish so I don’t know about that for sure. The masks come in a little box and the packaging is lovely although there are a few grammar mistakes printed on the box – not something you’d expect to see from a product that costs £20. For example they have listed TWELVE as an ingredient??? I’m pretty sure there are no ingredients named twelve… ha ha. Anyway, moving on… there are two foot peeling masks included in the box and they both come in their own silver foil pouches which help to keep the moisture in so they stay fresh. The masks themselves look like huge plastic white socks and there are four ‘socks’ altogether so enough for two applications – the inside of the ‘socks’ have like a gel lotion and they also have a nice, fresh and fruity scent which I really like.
INGREDIENTS: Water, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, TWELVE?, Trehalose, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Golden Chamomile, Witch Hazel, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Collagen, Triathanolamine, Matchyl Isobutyl Katona, Iodine, Butyl Alcohol, Butyl Carbamate, Allantoin, Essence, Licorice, Permeation Sodium Hyaluronate and Botanical Extracts.
HOW TO USE: The foot mask is very easy to use – I just teared open one of the sachets and took the pair of plastic socks out. They were attached together so I took a pair of scissors and cut down the middle so I had two individual socks. After making sure my feet were clean and dry I went ahead and put the socks over my feet. There is a sticky tab at the top of each sock to help keep them secure but I just tied a hair bobble around my ankles to make them feel even more secure. I did try to walk in them which was a big mistake, the socks started to slip off my feet and I was slipping everywhere so if you do buy these try not to walk whilst wearing them because you might fall and hurt yourself – wear a normal pair of socks over the masks to prevent this. I kept the socks on for 90 minutes as recommended – I wore mine whilst chilling watching Netflix and I forgot I even had them on.
VERDICT: After the recommended time was up I took off the socks and washed the leftover residue off my feet and made sure they were dry. I was impressed with the results and my skin felt really soft and smoother. The masks didn’t get rid of my hard skin completely but it did a great job at softening them and they didn’t feel as leathery as they did before so I was chuffed about that and thought I was onto a winner. The masks didn’t irritate my psoriasis either. Apparently, after two weeks of using the foot mask you should start to see your skin peeling and shredding old skin which will allow new, softer skin to grow instead. I was a little bit disappointed at this. I waited two whole weeks for my skin to start peeling and felt let down when it didn’t. I have a few odd patches where it looks like it may be about to peel but nothing like I was expecting – I thought that every bit of skin on my soles would peel but it never happened, not even a little bit. I think I’ll put the other foot mask on tomorrow and wait another two weeks once again so I will update this post with the results. I hope to see some peeling second time round!
THOUGHTS: I like the Soft Touch Foot Mask, it’s softened the hard skin on my heels and the skin on my feet feels smoother even after two weeks of using it but I’m still disappointed because my skin didn’t peel like it was supposed to – after all it does say it is a ‘foot peel mask’ so that is what I was expecting. I do think it is overpriced a little bit too – especially as it hasn’t done what it is supposed to do – yet and like I mentioned above the grammar mistakes on the box – I know this doesn’t affect the product itself but still. So, it really does help to soften the skin but I reckon you could achieve the same results using less expensive products such as a natural pomegranate oil, a castor oil or maybe a good quality exfoliating scrub like this Arabica Coffee Scrub from Art Naturals which I have reviewed HERE if you want to have a read.
DISCLOSURE: This product was gifted to me for review purposes.
