Not something I like to admit, but I'll take one for the team and reveal that I have cracked, dry heels -- the kind that no child should see for fear of causing nightmares of calloused skin monsters. I've tried Lubriderm, Burt's Bees Foot Cream, Coconut Oil -- basically lots of different things that you'd think would do SOMETHING, but nada.
So, I used everyone's best friend, The Internet, to find a cure (I only have a few more months until sandal season!) and found Visco-GEL Heel-So-Smooth Heel Sleeves ($13). These bad boys are infused with mineral oil, and you put them on before you go to sleep. After a few wearings, my heels are looking way, way better. Might I even say... smooth.
Here's to no more slathering on emollients, creams and oils, and to slipping around on my hardwood floors. Plus, things that make me look better while I sleep? Yes, please.
