What do you use 365 days of the year, rely on more than your BFF, and surprisingly accumulate half a pint of sweat from every single day? Well, your feet of course! In a world where your dawgs aren’t always airing out, it is easy to forget that those suckers need TLC too. This in mind, I thought I’d treat mine to love, respect, and Dr. Scholl’s Ultra Hydrating Foot Peel Mask (and review it for QUILL, ofc).
Similar to that of a face mask, a foot peel mask contains deeply moisturizing lotions and oils that penetrate the skin to soothe and purify your feet’s skin. Who cares about soft hands when you can have soft feet? … 🥵
Hearing about this newfound trend piqued my interest, as I’ve been aware of the rise of the foot care industry (feet pics or gtfo). Keeping in mind that I’m a college student (if you catch my drift), I knew it was time to submerge my feet in a bath of lotion.
Coming in a pack of three, this product features two disposable booties infused most notably with urea. Urea is a skincare agent that targets stale calloused skin, aiming to make it soft and supple. Known for its success with my psoriasis and eczema, I was excited to see how my calloused feet would take to the lather.

Upon opening the package, my nose was hit with a whiff of lavender, which instantly put me in the spa day mood. As I removed the booties I let out a giggle, these things were HUGE — reminding me of a clown shoe (then again, I am 5’2″). Here’s me holding these wacky looking things.
Recovering from my shock, I unsealed the large sock and slipped my feet right on in. Smoothing the excess with my hands, I was instructed (via directions) to fasten the sock tightly with the glue tab. And just like that, I let my dawgs sit for 30 minutes.
Wiggling my toes and rubbing my feet through the bootie, I was remarkably… underwhelmed.
I had expected a tingling sensation, or something transformational. However, I was met with the feeling of wearing a rain-soaked sock. Totally not relaxing. This may be due to the inclusion of glycerin and hyaluronic acid in the product, both hydrating agents.
This being said, when the 30 minutes were up, I removed both boots and observed my incredibly lotion-y feet. Rubbing in the lotion that did not absorb while wearing the mask I concluded that there was nothing different about my feet. No peeling, no exfoliation, just wet.
Later that day, I realized my feet were indeed soft and supple, but not without their gnarly callouses. A disappointment indeed, and not one I would want to experience again. Sorry, dawgs, and it’s a no from me.
