Ahh, the struggles of finding the perfect at-home wellness regimen.

Of course, we want to have soft feet without having to book an appointment at a nail salon or spa. That’s why when we heard about the viral wax foot warmer that's been taking over the internet, we had to know more.

On a brand new episode of Testing TikTok, PureWow content creator Kate Kesselman tested out the popular Paraffin Wax Machine ($70) at home. So, without further ado, let’s see if this wax warmer can really make our feet nice and silky smooth.

In the new episode (see above), Kate was unsure about dipping her feet in hot wax at first. “I never thought I’d be putting my feet in hot wax,” she said in the vid. “But you know, life is short and I want soft feet.” She went on to confess, “It is so nice to dip your feet in the wax. I feel like it’s almost the sensation of a hot tub.” Well, minus the feeling of a bunch of “dry glue” on your skin.

After putting the product to the ultimate test, Kate had plenty of thoughts. “I think I’m going to bring it to my friend’s bachelorette party,” she admitted. “It’s just a nice self-care thing to do.”

Interested in hearing whether the wax machine was worth the $70 price tag? Watch the video above to hear if Kate gives the wax foot warmer her stamp of approval.
