I’ve had dry, cracked heels for as long as I can remember. And yes, I’ve tried creams, pumice stones, and regular pedicures, thank you very much. But none of them made a lasting impact. According to my dad, it’s just something that runs in our family. Great!
So when I heard about Baby Foot, the mega popular foot peel mask that’s designed to exfoliate and hydrate dry feet, I was instantly intrigued. And after reading the almost 100 five-star reviews on Dermstore’s site and listening to my coworkers rave about the process (the mask makes dead skin slowly peel off your feet in an oddly satisfying way), I was dying to try it myself. But the $25 price point for just one mask stopped me in my tracks.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been known to splurge on beauty products (you should see my Summer Fridays collection), but the idea of spending that much on my feet felt ridiculous even if they were in desperate need of some TLC. So I began my quest for a more affordable alternative, which is how I stumbled upon Earth Therapeutics’ Soft & Smooth Gentle Peeling Foot Mask.
The K-Beauty dupe is infused with an alpha hydroxy acid complex to slough away dead skin for the same smoothing effect as Baby Foot at a way more reasonable price—$10 for two masks, to be exact. I promptly added a pack to my Bed Bath and Beyond cart and hoped for the best.
