It is for sure overwhelming to visit drug stores in Japan, as everything is written in the Japanese language and you could only guess the use of the product from the pictures on the package.. not kidding.
Once I like the picture on a product, I would go ahead and use google translate to get more information about how to use it and expected results.
One of the products that really stood out for me, was the SOSU FOOT PEELING SOCKS.
These socks can be used at home, which means that you do not have to visit expensive beauty salons no more to get those beautifully soft feet!
They promise to provide you with baby feet feeling!
How much is it?
We got these from Yodobashi shopping center when in Tokyo last year for ￥1,300 which is about 44 AED or about 12 $ per pack.
Each pack contains 2 pairs of socks, that means you get two pedicures per pack! (Bargain!)
On eBay you could find it for much higher price (29$!!) but hey, it’s worth it!
How do I use it?
It is extremely simple!
On the side of the box you could find step by step instructions as demonstrated in the picture below:
- Cut the top of the sock open
- Tape the sock to secure it on your feet
- Leave it on for an hour and a half
- Rinse with water
- Wait for a few days
- The dead skin on your feet will start peeling off (Dot not freak out.. it is really going to peel!!)
- keep moisturizing your feet as regular, and you will be left with baby feet
My review: 5/5
“I have used this only once. It didn’t do anything at first and I thought that it did not work! after few days however, the dead skin on my feet started peeling off!! it was unbelievable!! I looked at my feet as they were peeling like crazy and in my mind I thought “This looks like it must hurt” but it really didn’t at all. I did not feel a thing. My feet were renewed, and I was really left with baby feet.. No joke!
I would totally recommend this product, and I will defiantly repurchase.
My mom also tried it, and she fell in love! she said “This works really good.. I do not have to go to the salon anymore.. I could do my own pedicure at the comfort of my home and it is almost effortless”.
