You will have to forgive me in advance for the not so superb quality of the photographs in this post. I also want to warn you that A) I have water retention issues so my feet were really swollen this particular day and B) I DO NOT have pretty girly feet. Deal with it! I am half of my Dad too!
I, like most bloggers spend entirely too much time on Pinterest. Many of the tips and tricks on Pinterest are fantastic. However, I have seen lots of tips and tricks and wondered about the true ability of those particular combinations to produce results. Enter the Listerine and Vinegar recipe.
I was spending time with my sister in law, Kara, and we were talking about blogging, how much I enjoy it and how it relates to Pinterest etc. When I mentioned possibly trying out a “Does it really work?” section on my blog, she needed examples. I used Listerine and Vinegar removing dead skin from your feet as an example. Her eyes lit up and I knew immediately I was in trouble. Of COURSE she had the products on hand. OF COURSE she wanted to try it right then and there to see if it worked. So, I reluctantly agreed and we tried it out.
Big feet and little bowls do not go well together. I also had to keep fighting away doggies who were super excited to try and drink the blue treat!
We transferred the liquid and my foot to another dish. You know you’re jealous of that awesome flip flop tan line!
I thought we should check on the progress while were waiting and sure enough, there was a line on my foot where the liquid covered it.
After the 15 minute soak time, I did a side by side comparison. The left foot was treated the right foot was not. As you can see, I fight dry skin on my feet A LOT, so there was an improvement on the left foot compared to the right.
Would I recommend this to anyone else?
First, the amount of skin that came off, to me, was the equivalent of soaking your feet in a hot bath and rubbing then with a towel. I don’t really see the point in spending any extra money on a product combination that gives the same affect as hot water.
Second, water doesn’t turn your toes blue. Seriously. My nails and cuticles were blue!
