Despite the claims that make this sound like an advanced moisturizer for dry, cracked feet, this is an incredibly basic fragrance-free foot cream that’s mostly a blend of water-binding agents with wax and greasy emollients. It’s an OK option for dry skin on the feet, but the pH doesn’t permit the AHA-like ingredients to exfoliate skin. That’s too bad, because a well formulated moisturizing exfoliant for feet can make a significant improvement in their feel and appearance. Any of the BHA products from Paula’s Choice would run circles around this product, especially if your concern is thickened, dry, or cracked skin on your feet.
