Spunky Labia, International Foot Porn Superstar, had complaints.
"Appendage!" she cried, "You have not serviced me with a foot peel since before the pandemic!"
"You didn't seem to need one." I answered.
"I AM HIDEOUS."
"Oh, all right. We still have two of them."
I applied a foot peel and followed all the directions. A week later there had been some progress but not the reptilian shedding as before.
"Check the expiration date!" she demanded. And Spunky was right, the foot peel had expired last month. She felt bad, and to please her I had to buy the most expensive foot peel, and for once the men's version of a product was the more expensive one.
So next week expect Spunky to man up with this. extra-large, extra-strength foot peel for men.
Spunky: "BRING IT!"
Gary: "No, it will hurt your toes!"
I seriously doubt it will hurt. Perhaps they add an astringent that might dupe some into thinking it's working, and it might tingle, but that's all.
Spunky is tapping her toes impatiently.
Fascinating. My feet still just get warm-water soaks and exfoliation with a weird scrubby scarf thing from... maybe Japan? (so. useful. and also it's holding up well and more washable than a loofah is, since it's only a single layer of scrubby-fabric) But I think that's all they want, too.
Maybe if I had a diva toe, we'd have to get all experimental as well. But mine are placid. So, my feet get a mostly calm life.

KC - you are lucky, or naturally moisturized, or perhaps you self-moisturize. I can't bear lotion. No doubt Spunky would prefer it but lotion makes my skin crawl.

I’ve tried one of these twice and find they work really well. Or I assume they do. You’re supposed to leave them alone but my ADD loves, loves, LOVES to peel off the skin as soon as it starts peeling so I never get the full effect. But I love the peeling! So maybe it works in the long run, lol.

LIsa - I didn't peel this time and it worked far less effectively, but that might also be because it was expired. I keep delaying this experiment for just the right dull work meeting. Soaking my feet: a good use of already wasted time.
