Be warned. There’ll be photos of ugly feet in this blog. Yes, feet that are wrinkled and look way older than her age and feet covered with thick calluses. For the courageous ones who read on, you’ll be rewarded with a good and cheap solution to ugly feet like mine feet that are due for some good exfoliation.
No. We are not talking about Baby Foot Mask. We are talking about something cheaper and which works perfectly in what it was supposed to do. Let me present to you Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask, a Korean-made foot peel.
How to Use Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask?
Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask works like AHA or chemical peel, and causes the skin to peel within 2 weeks. It contains papaya, lemon, apple, orange and other botanical extracts to treat while exfoliating your feet.
Here’s how you should apply it.
Step 1: Cut the opening of the socks
Step 2: Cleanse your feet and put on the socks
Step 3: Remove after 60 to 90 minutes and rinse off with water
I had it on for 90 minutes. It was a cool, minty feel. Towards the end, my feet felt slightly numbed. Nevertheless, there was no pain or any discomfort at all.
If you have your nail polish on, you may notice some of it coming off. I normally apply this mask when my polish has worn out. This actually makes vanish removal an easier job.
Step 4: Calluses starts peeling off in 4 to 7 days. Peeling should be completed within 14 days
The first sign of peeling for me started on Day 4. It was a tiny area, like 1cm X 1cm.
Between Day 5 to 9, my feet changed from being dry and flaky to peeling like a snake.
Between Day 10 to Day 14, the feet was 50% peeled. Some parts were still dry and flaky.
What’s Good about Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask
This retails at S$4.90. With Sasa’s “Buy two get one free” promotion that has been ongoing since a few years ago, this effectively works out to SGD3.30 per piece (USD2.50). As compared to the popular brand, this is so much more affordable.
If you think this cheaper product suffers in quality, I beg to differ. I’ve used cheaper products that did not work. But this is not the one. Read on.
2. It Works
Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask peels effectively. Here are some before-after photos.
I had to wait for it to peel completely before taking the photos.
By the time I took these photos on Day 16, new layer of dead skin had formed on the parts that peeled first.

See how my foot looks pink and reborn. Yes, I know you can still see some calluses near the pressure zones which were due to my love for 4-inch heels, brisk walking and jogging. I guess I need another round of foot exfoliation soon, yah?
1. Long Duration
While the popular brand may require you to have the socks on for only 30 minutes, you need 60 to 90 minutes for this to work.
Yes, I know. It’s a long time to spend on beauty. It doesn’t really bother me as I tend to do this at night, while watching TV. I also have a pair of indoor slippers that I wear all the time, and that proves to be really useful when moving about (you don’t want any of these acids on the floor).
Trading off 30-60 minutes for some great savings? I think it’s pretty worthwhile.
2. No Sealing Tape
Other brands may come with a sealing tape to reduce the opening of the socks, so that it fits better and doesn’t slip off. This one doesn’t come with a tape. You can still walk around, just that you’ll probably walk like a duck.
Luckily, this can be easily solved. What you need to do is to get some scotch tape ready. Everyone has a scotch tape, yah? I thought that’s a good bargain for the extra savings.
3. One Size Only
They come in one size – a big size to fit all. It may not fit that well for those with smaller feet. As long as you are sitting down, it shouldn’t cause a big problem. Also, pulling another pair of your own socks over may improve the fit.
Now, before I feel rich enough to spend on Baby Foot, Skinlite Exfoliating Foot Mask would be my Holy Grail foot peel. At this price, it’s is extremely affordable. I have used this more than five times, and will continue using it. Rating: 5/5.
Can’t find this product online? I’ve done some research for you. Try using the keyword “Purederm Exfoliating Foot Mask“. They are the same!
I may want to give the popular brand, Baby Foot a try later. However, the price is seriously pushing me away. Can someone tell me if it is worthwhile to switch?
