So I bought the Purrfect Pedi at Primark. It’s from Holler and Glow, I’ve seen reviews about their face masks so I bought a few face products along with this foot peel.
I decided it would be a good product to review and oh wow, the review did not go well, or should I say, the product didn’t. I’ve just been looking at other reviews and none of them are particularly good either.
I wrote my review a really long time ago now but other blogs that I want to write more came up!
The packet says they’re a ‘sock mask’ for ‘transforming intensive foot peel magically removes and smoothes calluses and rough skin’.
You wear the socks for a 60-90 minutes, and basically within 7-10 days after applications, dead skin will peel away.
I’d been really apprehensive about doing it since a lady in Superdrug heard my friends and I talking about foot peels and let us know her thoughts. She said she’d recently used one and now her feet felt amazing but that it was kind of gross for a while whilst it was peeling.
I wish I’d read the instructions before I bought the peel, it didn’t think you’d have to wear it for so long, I thought it would be 1-3 days roughly. How wrong I was.
So I’m finally biting the bullet and giving it a go.
- It smells W E I R D, it’s quite a chemically smell
- The design seems even more hideous than the smell
- Do not attempt to walk! I stood up from the floor and sat on the edge of the bed, that was a struggle enough. I’ve also realised that I haven’t made my lunch for work tomorrow but now I have to wait an hour, until 22:50, when I can do something about it.
- The instructions say tie the socks around your ankle, mine came up higher because if I’d cut them down to size any more, then I would have cut off the sticky tab used to seal the socks. Now I’m really worried that it’s going to peel all the way up to my ankles!
- Look how huge they are:
I still have 20 minutes left and I want to take these sock things off so badly! They’re so weird and I’m not convinced at the moment that I’ll ever do them again.
Dobby is free
THEY’RE OFF AND I AM FREEEEEE!
I honestly feel like Dobby expect I want the socks gone, instead of on.
They took the colour off from my toe nail varnish! Wth was in these things! I had blue polish on and now most of them are shite or a really pale blue!!
The foot peeling begins
I’m not convinced. Also, the top of my feet have gone flaky rather than peeled. I just don’t think much has actually peeled.
I won’t be repurchasing and I honestly think it’s a waste of money.
Maybe if you bought another brand it would work but if they’re a long process like this one then I won’t be bothering. I’m sure there’s a way to get my feet beach ready without all of this hassle.
