WARNING – The following post contains an image that might disturb you, if you are faint-hearted. I wouldn’t say that it is too gross to post (proof being that I am posting it) but the title really makes me giggle. Rest assured, no feet were harmed in the making of the post.
I never hid the fact that I like the Footsies.
Don’t get me wrong, I definately don’t have a foot fetish or anything like it. But while a lot of people think their feet are ugly and try to hide them at all costs, I do like my cute little feet, and they’ve had much more coverage in The Cove than my face (which is much much less cute).
I try to treat the Footsies, as often as I can. I offer them furry socks so they feel comfy, and I give them a little rub, after soaking for a while in a nice warm bath. They well deserve the little attentions, since they’ve been loyal through all my wanderings. And boy, sometimes, did they suffer. I remember days in Denmark and in Australia, when they had to live through out-of-this-world blisters… And still, they stick by me.
You might think that I only talk about the Footsies here, on my blog.
Nope, everyone who knows me well is aware that I care more about them than pretty much any other part of my body (exagerating a little here, but not that much). So I was only half surprised when my little brother offered me this exfoliating watermelon & citrus (I honestly didn’t smell my feet after the treatment, so I can’t say if the fragrance was accurate) Korean foot peel.
It was a treat, of course, but also an experiment. Little bro had tried it, and according to him, he had peeled his own feet like bananas.
I was up for the challenge.
I had never seen instructions in so many languages, and it included Danish which comforted me a lot. (It’s the one starting with ”Advarsel”) If Danes use this foot peel, why wouldn’t I??
So I poured the mysterious peeling liquid in the weird plastic slippers, and wore them for about one and a half hours.
The instructions said that I wasn’t to expose my feet to direct sunlight after the treatment, which wasn’t a problem given that spring is not here just yet, so when I take the Footsies outside, it means them wearing warm socks and boots. I told Little Bro I was waiting for the magic to happen, but I knew I had about five days to go.
So I waited, and waited, and waited.
And last Thursday, after a week, Little Bro enquired.
Is it happening yet? – He asked on Messenger. Nope, nothing going on. I was disappointed… Maybe I had taken such good care of the Footsies, that even the Korean chemists couldn’t make them peel? I took a warm bath, and noticed that my skin was starting to crack around my toes. I went from disappointed to super excited in 2,5 seconds, and ran to my tablet to tell my brother (after dressing, of course).
But the real surprise came on Friday night.
It took only one other bath ritual to unleash the power of the magical Korean peel! When I got out of the tub, I felt like I had water soles. I’ll let you judge…
Just so you know, the dead skin is gone now, and the Footsies look better than ever. So if you get a chance to get your hands on one of these kits, do try them.
Your Footsies deserve it. I promise.
