Quick and cheap: O'Keeffe's Foot Cream

Disclosure: This post affiliate links.
My dad gave me a tub of this foot cream for Christmas and raved about it. He wanted me to try it right away. Being the stubborn bad daughter that I am, I insisted that I needed to finish up the tube of foot lotion I had at home before I opened up something new. So I spent all of January with hard, rough, dry feet.

It's hard not to make some stupid "father knows best" joke right now.

Anyway, he was right, this stuff is the shit, and my feet would have been much happier if I had been using it all along. I don't have any before and after photos, because you probably didn't want to see the crusty bottoms of my feet, and I honestly didn't expect to post about some foot cream that my dad bought at Canadian Tire. Yeah, this stuff sold at hardware stores in addition to drugstores, but you can get it online for about $6.

It's has a weird texture. It feels kind of hard and dry initially, but when you scoop some out it's soft and buttery. It's unscented and not overly greasy (a little, though). If you use it during the day, you can walk on a hard floor after a few minutes without slipping and falling. I put it on my feet before bed a few times a week, and it definitely makes a difference. It doesn't peel off your skin and leave you with new feet (like this freaky shit), but it will soften them. The main thing I noticed is that my feet got a lot smoother. You know how really dry feet are kind of scratchy and they catch on bed sheets or socks like velcro and it's really unpleasant and blehhhhh? This stuff cures Velcro Foot Syndrome. It works better than any other cream or lotion I've tried on my feet. And I don't hate the teal and orange packaging. Matches my blog.

I guess when your dad gives you skin care advice, you should listen. Unless he recommends Windex.

  2. The same company makes a similar product called Working Hands and it's amazing. It's in a green container, for all I know it could be the same exact ingredients they just change packaging. I kept getting these big burly men from the local factories at my job getting all WHERE IS YOUR WORKING HANDS? THERE'S NONE ON THE SHELF! I NEED MORE!! and they seriously buy like 3 at a time. That got me curious to try it lol Totally fixes all the cuts and dry spots I get that normally take for.ever. to heal

    1. I haven't actually compared the ingredients, but this foot stuff says that you can also use it on hands, etc., so I wouldn't be surprised it it were the same. Good stuff!

  3. I have velcro foot syndrome and fucked up my satin sheets because of that. However did you try baby foot? And if so what were your results?
