Glytone Retexturize Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream

Ok, let’s be real here: I know a bunch of you handsome chaps out there have let your feetsies turn to hooves over these cold winter months.

And I totally get it — I do, really, I’m with you. We walk everywhere in the city and  it’s natural things for things to start looking kind of well, I don’t know, medieval.

But there’s a time and a place for that, and that time and place is never. So let’s fix the situation.

The Glytone Retexturize Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream is your salvation in a jar. And it’s kind of super duty, so tread with caution (see what I did there?)

So let’s discuss the details.

This is a cream that exfoliates extremely dry skin, you know the kind — it’s super dry and hardens out. Walking all the time everywhere in the city, I feel like everyone falls victim to this.

This contains 39.5% free acid value glycolic acid. Which, what does that even mean? Well, basically the glycolic acid dissolves dry, coarse, and dead skin, and is particularly targeted to the tradition problem spots on elbows and heels.

The way you use this is by gently massaging onto dry, callused areas. Let it soak in, leave for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.

I used this on my feet and noticed a slight change with the very first treatment. It was subtle, but definitely noticeable. And the thing is, all of that hardened skin took a while to accumulate, so it’s going to take a bit of time coming off, so use this once a day until your feet are looking and feeling presentable. I’ll leave it up to you to decide, so no, please don’t send any foot selfies (footsies?)

$37 for 1.7 oz jar
