If You Loved the Original Baby Foot, You’ll Go Crazy for This New Product
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
The first time I heard about Baby Foot I was mesmerized and grossed out at the same time. Considering the fact that I am constantly plagued by dry, cracked heels and always on a mission to find a cream or balm that could quench their thirst, I had to do some digging to find out what Baby Foot was really all about. Boy was I glad I found it.
The original version, which is probably what you’re most familiar with, is a pair of presoaked exfoliating booties that you slip your feet into and let the acid-rich concoction work its magic over the course of one hour. While there’s no immediate difference in the way your feet look or feel, about three to five days after wearing the booties the skin on your feet starts to shed—and I mean shed as in layer upon layer of like a snake molting—to eventually reveal the softest, freshest, prettiest heels you ever did see.

Being a devoted fan of Baby Foot (I try and exfoliate my feet with it every few months, but need to plan accordingly because this is one treatment that you don’t want to do when you know you have to wear open toe shoes to an important event) I was beyond excited to learn that the brand had launched a sister product, Baby Foot Moisturizing Foot Mask ($15).
More of a hydrating treatment than an exfoliating one, like the cult-classic original (which has been on the market for more than 20 years and is the best-selling foot product in Japan), these serum-soaked booties (slip them on your feet for about 20 minutes and let them work their magic; once you remove them, rub any remaining product into your feet) transform dry, parched heels into super soft feet. Best when used after the original Baby Foot, this is the perfect post-treatment complementary way to hydrate and heal.
Chock-full of collagen, hyaluronic acid and 14 different natural extracts ranging from chamomile and sage to lemon and ivy, the new Moisturizing Foot Mask is actually the first new product release from the brand since making its U.S. debut back in 2012. So now you have the complete range of feet perfecting disposable booties, an exfoliating one to renew and a hydrating to moisturize. Quote honestly, the perfect pair!
