I was trying on some summer sandals the other day and absolutely horrified at the state of my feet; dry, cracked, horny skin. Yuk! There's no way I can expose them in this state. I've started pumicing them in the shower but it's going to be a long process getting them back into shape.
What are your fav foot products? Any tips for keeping them looking good? Well good is relative, they're square with short webbed toes so I won't be doing foot modelling any time soon lol.

I use vaseline aloe fresh on my feet, and arms and legs and body too actually. Its fantastic and i have used it ever since kidspot did a trial for it. Its cheap and works well and fast too. my feet were rather cracked when i first started the trial and after a week of applying it morning and night my feet looked amazing :)

Thanks SarahK, I'll try that. Happens that I'm almost out of moisturiser and cheap sounds good at the moment too lol.

My mother swears by Schol heel balm and she used to have very dry craked heels and now they are smooth and look way better than mine...  I've been looking at my feet too lately and thinking yuck!!!

I'm with Sarah on this one... vaseline aloe fresh (since the trial!) and also vaseline cocoa butter in a lotion or body butter - both just lovely!

Super cheap beauty trick.
Before bed each night, wash your feet with warm water, pat dry (thoroughly in between the toes), then apply vaseline (plain petroleum jelly) to the driest areas ie. heel/edge of toes (don't rub in too thoroughly). Then slather on lotion of your choice (all up leg don't neglect them) but don't rub in too much either (the faster your skin absorbs the lotion the thirstier it is, you may need a second application the first few days) put socks on, hop in bed, wait at least 10minutes before removing socks (or sleep in them haha) wake up to softer feet :) .

I don't think my lovely man will be impressed but I might have to give it a go. They're slowly coming right but still not anything I'd like to show in public, mind you the legs aren't really up to public viewing either lol,

I do lotion then socks whenever I remember too and it does make a huge difference. I'm sure your lovely man would rather you wore ugly old socks to bed occasionally than accidently cutting his leg with crusty heels LOL (gee that sounds glam!)
