For all the Louboutins, Blahniks and Choos we squeeze our toes into and skip our rent for, we tell ourselves its all worth it for a little collateral damage. But its not until the summer rolls around that we curse our neglect and reach for the pumice stone.
I admit that I am a total beauty junkie and consider my twice-weekly maintenance nights something of a ritual and have been known to even cancel nights out if they happen to fall on these nights (I know). However, aside from the odd quarterly pedi, anything below my ankles I just don’t bother with and adopt the mantra “out of sight, out of mind”. It’s terrible and I’d kick myself if I could stand those things near me!
So when This Works Perfect Heels Rescue Balm landed on my desk, it couldn’t have been a more perfect time. Promising to replace cracked and dry heels with baby soft skin I quickly slathered it on before bed and quickly tried to fall asleep like a kid before Christmas. However, unlike Dec 25th I awoke a little disappointed. My heels seemed worse than ever but on closer inspection I noticed it was worse as the creams ingredients had penetrated the top layer of skin to work deep down. After using for three more consecutive nights my heels were a lot softer and less cracked and a week later they were like someone else’s feet! I’m now working on the balls and toes to get rid of the last bits of dry skin and I am summer-ready.
Time for some new shoes to celebrate I think!
