Wanna know a disgusting little secret about me? OK, I preface this by saying I wouldn’t be offended if you think differently of me after reading this post and never want to speak to me again. Here goes…*big exhale* I love picking at my skin/pimples/scabs etc. I know it’s gross but OHGEEEEEEEEEEE it’s so satisfying! As a kid I would peel my sunburn and just marvel at the sheets of skin that would come off. Any time I’d have a scab I would pick at it incessantly and my mum would warn me I’d leave a scar but I was undeterred.
Now take this gross obsession and team it with a product like Milky Foot – an “intense” exfoliating foot pad that’s designed to be an at-home pedicure which results in LASHINGS of skin peeling off! DROOL!!! Check out the ad, it’s positively gag worthy….
My feet are EXTREMELY ticklish and getting a pedicure these days borders on the impossible (I laugh, scream, want to kick the poor lady in the face) so I just ask to get my nails painted and pass on the much needed foot scrub. I’ve been meaning to try Milky Foot for a while now but I was sceptical at the results and the price tag turned me off a little (just under $25).
Last Sunday I was all set for a little pampering so I popped these little sockettes on my feet and settled in for the next hour. I did just as the instructions asked; I put a pair of cotton socks over the top and made sure to keep my feet in a horizontal position. Instantly I could feel a little tingling action and I got über excited. I had visions of my feet shedding skin just like a snake and I shuddered with joy!
After the hour was up I rinsed off the gunk and for the next few hours I could still feel a magical tingling. OH MAN THIS WAS GOING TO BE EPIC!! The pack says the fabulous peeling would start after 3-5 days so come Wednesday I should be in heaven…Wednesday came and went and NOTHING! WTF? Then this morning a little something but hardly any where near the amount that was in the ad. Check it out…
Hmmmm individual results may vary indeed! I still have a couple of days before I can really poo-poo it, but I don’t think I’ll be buying Milky Foot again. I’ll keep you all updated in case any miraculous foot-shaped layers of skin fall off (in fact you know that shit will be all over my social media accounts!) but I won’t be holding my breath.
So, do you all think I’m super gross and never want to read my blog again? Or are you just as disgusting as me? I’d love to know if you’ve tried Milky Foot and whether it worked for you
