REVIEW: Footner Exfoliating Socks

Footner Exfoliating Socks

Price: £19.99

Stockists: Boots, Superdrug

Pros:

  • Only needs to be worn for an hour
  • Packaging says they are free from perfume and allergens
  • Alternative to a pedicure to achieve smooth feet

Cons:

  • Strong chemical smell
  • Only comes in one size
  • No tape to secure the sock to your foot

 

They say:

Footner Exfoliating Socks, the cosmetic peel for your feet, take just seven days to get rid of callus and hard skin to reveal baby soft feet underneath.  There is no filing, scraping or grating required – simply pre-soak feet in water, slip on the Footner Exfoliating Socks, pour wine, relax for 60 minutes, then wait for the peel..

The active AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) in Footner, also used in cosmetic skin peels, soften the hard skin build up and loosen the ‘glue’ that binds dead skin cells together, starting the exfoliation process naturally.  Only the dead skin cells are removed, leaving feet pedi-perfect.

We say:

Having previously used foot peels which took two + hours to work I was happy that the packaging here said it takes only 60 minutes to achieve results. Initially I was slightly frustrated that the “sock” was so large that I had to walk around while wearing them to look for tape.

After wearing for an hour, I washed my feet and was surprised that four days later I hardly saw any peeling. But, after that there was a lot of grossly satisfying peeling on my soles and I was so happy with the results. My feet are smooth and summer ready. The only downside is that it wasn’t strong enough on the heel of my foot, due to the large size, meaning there is some leftover hard skin there.

Packaging:

The pink box is slightly flimsy and as mentioned the socks themselves should come with elasticated tabs or string to grip them onto the food

Effectiveness:

Works. 5 stars

Value for Money:

Yes. Although, I was surprised that this is £19.99 it does work but you only need to use it every few months.

Buy or Bye:
