Review : Skin Food Shea Butter Foot Mask
Treat your feet to a relaxing foot spa rich with vitamin A and E! This unique foot mask shaped to fully cover your entire foot. It softens thick, hard calluses while protecting moisture from evaporation, for a smoother and healthier appearance. Comes in a pair.
Feet, being worked the hardest is usually the most neglected of all. Wearing open-toed sandals can make the soles dry and the heels hard and crackled. Seriously, an ugly sight but no one seems to care.
I admit that I used to be one of those who don't care but I have since improve on it, and tried to scrub the heels and soles with my body scrub and condition my soles before wearing socks to sleep, whenever I can. So at times like this, I like to wear a foot mask for 20minutes before sealing it with a foot moisturiser.
And thats how the Korean Foot Mask comes into play.
Shea butter in hand creams doesn't work well for my dry hands but it works well on my feet. If you have severely dry, hardened, crackled, wrinkled heels, this foot mask probably may not suit you. You need to get rid of all the dead skin and hard calluses first, before you can actually see the effect of the mask on your softened heels.
Similar to the Tony Moly Bergamot Foot Mask, it comes in a 2 plastic sheets that are shaped for the feet. It has a inner lining which are moist enough for the feet to feel moisturised as you slipped them in for the next 20minutes. The gap at the calves are similarly wide as the Tony Moly Bergamot Foot mask. In fact I don't see a difference between both foot masks, except for the scent.
However, this shea butter foot mask did leave my soles and heels softened and more moisturised than before the application.
The immediate after-feel after removing the mask, is the greasy and slippery texture on the soles, so be careful while walking. I usually do the treatment just before I hit the bed. Remove the foot masks and tuck in bed!
