“This stuff is amazing. Seriously.”
Almost overnight, soft and supple feet can become dry and cracked as the weather shifts from warm and humid to cool and arid. When your usual lineup of lotions no longer cut it, you might consider switching over to a heavy duty moisturizer to return your feet to their former silky smooth appearance.
Amazon shoppers seem to have stumbled upon an affordable solution to this seasonal struggle. O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream is one of the retail giant’s best-selling foot care products. With over 6,500 five-star reviews, it’s no surprise the practical product has earned the “Amazon’s Choice” banner for foot creams.
Rather than shelling out anywhere from $35 to $60 for a professional pedicure, you can invest just $7 in a jar of hydrating foot cream. The concentrated formula instantly moisturizes feet and prevents future dryness by creating a protective layer on the surface of the skin. Its key ingredients include glycerin for hydration, paraffin to maintain moisture, and allantoin to soften rough skin.
To start using, simply exfoliate your feet with a callus remover after bathing and apply the foot cream to your heels and any other dry areas before bed. You can also put on a pair of socks to allow the cream to really soak into your skin. This ensures maximum hydration for smoother feet in a snap.
The reviews (and accompanying before-and-after pictures) on Amazon say it all. Even people who have suffered from dry feet for most of their adult lives saw major results after using the foot cream regularly over the course of a few weeks.
“This stuff is amazing. Seriously,” one reviewer wrote. “My feet have been cracked non-stop for probably the last 10 years. I’ve tried literally everything… I was just about to buy a foot chemical peel when I saw this and figured I’d give it a shot… Overall, I couldn’t recommend this more. I know I sound like an infomercial, but I can honestly say this is worth every penny.”
Another explained, “It goes on creamy, but not greasy. It soaks in fast so you can wear sandals soon after you apply it. This cream has no fragrance at all. Nothing. It's wonderful, [and] it won't clash with other products you are using. It softened my feet beautifully and fast.”
One customer even said his feet “looked and felt like babies” after using the cream on painful cracked feet for just two weeks.
So whether you’ve always dealt with rough, dry heels or are simply looking for a powerful product to add to your winter skincare lineup, this heavy duty foot cream from O’Keeffe’s may be just what your feet have been craving.
