Product Review: Milky Foot + Giveaway

Each summer as the weather heats up and I start wearing sandals and walk barefoot around the my house, my feet start to get dry with rough, tough, hardened skin, so when I was offered to trial some new products called *Milky Foot Exfoliating Pad and *Milky Foot Foot Care Essence, which promises milky soft feet, I happily accepted. And keep reading, you’ll have a chance to try these products too!!

Here are my thoughts on the Milky Foot products;

What They Say:
"Exfoliate with Milky Foot Exfoliating Pads. Milky Foot Exfoliating Pads remove hardened, tough skin and calluses after just one application. The intense foot peeling effect starts just 5-10 days from the first application and optimal results are achieved from two weeks onwards. This is the most effortless at-home treatment to exfoliate your feet."

Soften with NEW Milky Foot Essence. Milky Foot Essence keeps your feet softer for longer especially when used in conjunction with Milky Foot Exfoliating Pads (after the peeling process is complete). This innovative new product has an intense softening action that rejuvenates your feet and keeps them smoother and softer for longer".

RRP:  $29.95 each for Milky Foot Exfoliating Pads or Milky Foot Essence. Available from Priceline

Note: Milky Foot products are not suitable for pregnant women or diabetics.

What I Say:
The Exfoliating Foot Pads are like little socks that you filled with liquid, which you soak your feet in for a 60-90 minutes. The product is super easy to use. You simply ear the plastic gel filled slippers and slip in your feet.

At first this feels really funny and a little squishy but I got used to it after a while.  The actual liquid has a chemically smell, which really didn’t bother me, although it of course would be nice if I was improved. The box does recommend wearing socks on top – and I highly recommend that you wear some old ones as it can leak a little. It is also a little tricky to walk around with the pads, so I enjoyed a nice relaxing hour with my feet up! While you wait the gel does make your feet feel a little tingly.

When the time is up, the gel washes of easily – and then the wait started.

After 3 days, my feet started to peel. I have never ever seen so many layers of skin peeling off from feet before.  And this continues for the peeling continues for the next week. Actually it was getting so embarrassing as I was not able to go out to the shops in thongs – it almost looked like I had some kind of foot fungal happening, quite off-putting – so when you do this treatment, you really have to make sure that you don’t have some special events coming up!

After the peeling of my feet had completely finished, I started using the Foot Care Essence. And what a relief to finally be able to put some moisture back into your feet!

The Essence contains PolySan, Chitosan, Vitis Vinifera (grape) and plant extracts to protect the feet and delay the formation of hardened skin. IT rejuvenates, softens and repairs hardened skin and cracks on the feet.

The foot essence is liquid with the same consistency as water. It comes in a bottle with a glass dropper that is attached to the lid, which makes application very easy. And contrary to the Exfoliating Pads, the Essence has a pleasant smell too.

The Essence feels lovely to use and instantly makes my feet smooth and soft. It deeply nourishes the skin, yet without the greasy or slimy feel of some foot moisturisers. The Essence absorbs instantly, so you can put on your socks or shoes almost immediately. This really is so much easier to use, and without the mess of the exfoliating pads. The Essence truly helps ensure that my feet are kept softer for longer, and maintains the results from the exfoliating pads.

All in all, some amazing products – my feet may not quite look like the soft baby feet pictured on the boxes, but they are definitely much much better than what they were before, I can both see and feel the difference!!

  1. I have tried Baby Foot, a similar peeling product, once. It was so weird, I left a trail of feet everywhere for two weeks! My feet were a lot softer afterwards though :)

  2. oops and my email is catn2kittens at yahoo [dot] com [dot] au :)

  3. Same here Kristine! I also tried that one and actually only discovered the Milky Foot last night.
    I adored the result, but getting there was a bit gross. I had to wear socks in bed they shed so badly.
    This is definitely worth doing, but you must plan a good two week window where you don't need to be exposing your tootsies :D
    As much as I try to look after my feet, there are areas that are hard to get to, and this type of product gets into all those nooks and crannies around your toes, which is fab. I think due to the toughness of my heel area, a couple of goes are needed for there, but the price makes me hold off doing them too close together.

    I also soaked my feet before hand as this was recommended to help soften the skin more to allow deeper penetration of the product. I also moisturised regularly even before the shedding started to help loosen the skin.
    I don't imagine much can be done regrading the smell as I believe it is largely based on fruit acids?

    My email should be accessable via GFC. I hope :D

  4. This sounds excellent! I would love to try this out!


  5. How Exciting another awesome Giveaway!! Never tried these yet but so want too :)

  9. This sounds pretty interesting :)

  10. This sounds like it would be perfect for my mother. She has so many calluses on her feet.

  11. I have one foot in a cast after breaking my ankle and I am getting the cast off in two weeks and would love to treat my feet to a Milky Foot surprise. The underside of the cast foot is rather gross from not being able to put a shoe on for six weeks!

  12. Can't wait to try this for summer!

  13. Sounds interesting, though a bit scary :P
    I find that Burt's Bee's Foot Balm/Creme works quite well ;)

  17. i have never tried the milky foot range but it sounds great and just what my poor little dry feet need.

  18. I've been considering trying this for a very long time, but nowhere around where I live stock it. I really want to see how it would go on really tough feet that haven't been loved for a long time! my email is courtsi(dot)goss(at)gmail(dot)com
