Shoppers Swear By This ‘Miracle Balm’ That Softens Cracked Heels To Feel ‘Soft Like a Baby’s Bottom’

·2 min read

Sandal season might bring a smile to some faces, but what about those of us who stopped aggressively moisturizing our feet sometime in the winter when the greasy-foot-wool-sock combo became too much to bear, and now have nothing but calloused, cracked, dry heels to show for it? Sandal season becomes a nightmarish time, with our cracked heels out in the world for all to see — never mind the fact that dry heels can be seriously uncomfortable. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way, and judging by the reviews, this Dr. Scholl’s Cracked Heel Repair Balm could have your feet sandal-ready in just a few weeks.

Heels are in a hard working spot of the body, so they really do need more than just a regular moisturizer, especially if they’re already dry. This repair balm has a thick texture that actually fills in any cracks in your heels so they are penetrated with moisture, and it contains 25% urea, which helps soften and exfoliate dry, dead skin. It’s got 4.4 out of 5 stars from more than 5,500 reviews, so you know it really works. This balm also helps soothe any irritation and inflammation on your heels, and it has a non-greasy texture so you won’t get that ick factor when pulling on your socks.

However, one of our favorite way to avoid that feeling altogether is by using heel socks along with heel balm. Basically, these socks fit over your heel to keep the balm in place, and have a gel lining, so the balm doesn’t saturate your socks or mess up your sheets at night.
