BEAUTY | Purederm Exfoliating Foot Mask, Is it Worth it?

Wednesday, August 09, 2017

My feet are the most neglected part of my body. I hate my feet and while I have good intentions to use foot creams I rarely bother. 

A few years ago I received a food exfoliating mask from a blogging event and it was a revelation. I had nice feet for the first time I could ever remember and I did repurchase that brand at least one. That was the Footner brand and it has an RRP of £19.99 (It is often on offer but still £10 plus) I know it works so I would buy again but the cheapskate in me doesn't want to spend that money too often. 

A couple of weeks ago I spotted Kelly from Big Fashionista had used the Purederm and it had worked.

I'd always been put off buying the cheaper brands in case they were a waste of money. The Purederm cost £5.70 from Amazon.

My feet are bad. I took photos but I can't bring myself to put them on the internet. If you really want to see I can send them to you but trust me, you won't like them.


Inside the pack are two liquid filled booties and you will need scissors to get into them. One thing I hadn't realised is they come in different sizes. I got the regular and I had to rip the top a little bit to get my size 7 feet in them. Next time I will look out for large ones but if you are a size 6 or under these should be fine.


What happens next is you sit for 60-90 mins and do nothing. Don't try and walk in them as they are a little slidey.

Then you wash your feet and wait. Be patient as it can take up to 7 days before you get any peel. My feet became very dry and uncomfortable before the peel started.

It does say not to use moisturiser or pick at the feet (I know ewww). I noticed peeling on day 7 and the urge to pick was strong.

Day 8 I decided to soak my feet and got my foot file/pumice stone on them. This aided the peel and my feet were no longer sore. I also did a foot moisturising mask as I couldn't take the dryness. I did the same again on Day9 but didn't moisturise after.

As I mentioned my feet are awful with thick cracked heels so if your feet aren't too bad I would probably say skip this as per the instructions.

Day 10 - My feet are still peeling slightly but most of the worst skin has come off. Personally, I think I need to move into deep moisturisation as my heels are still very dry but I am going to wait a day or two until the peeling has fully stopped. They are not sore or openly cracked anymore and this is why I think I need to start moisturising to stop this happening.

Would I recommend this product? A huge YES!

Can I offer any advice? Yes, check the size you're ordering. Follow the instructions. Be patient and enjoy the peel. Also, don't do it if you need to wear open shoes within the next fortnight. Get used to wearing socks, trust me this is needed to contain your own peelings (ewww again).

I want to do it all again and I'm not fully out of the peeling stages. They do recommend waiting a couple of months before using again and I am going to try and stick to this as they are a chemical peel.

Since buying I have discovered they sell a similar product in Primark for £4. I have bought one to see if the ingredients are the same. If they are I'm going to stock up while they have them in as they are the cheapest I've found.

I'm going on holiday in November so I'm planning on doing this process again in September or October so my feet are nice and pretty (they will never be pretty, who am I trying to kid) ready for the sunny Lanzarote climate.

Have you ever tried a product like this? How did you get on?

  6. I can't say I've ever used a "foot mask" - I've never even heard of them! Not sure this product is really for me - think I'd prefer a face mask lol x

  7. I've seen these around and been meaning to try them out. But I didn't want to spend a fortune. I will head on Amazon as sounds like they have better prices there

  8. I've never used a foot mask before! I think it's something I would try though, as I hate having dead skin and stuff on the bottom of my feet!!
