This was the first time I used a peeling mask, so I honestly didn't know what to expect. My feet suffered from roughness, and I wanted something to help soften it.
If you want to use this peeling mask, you should spare about 2 weeks for the peeling process. This means, you may not be able to use open shoes or sandals during that time because your feet will look ugly with all the peeling. :p
This mask is shaped like socks, with an adhesive tape to hold the ankle part together. I put the mask on, and covered them with some socks so I could still walk around freely while having the mask on. It takes 40 minutes to an hour before you can take these off. After an hour, I took the socks and masks off, and rinsed my feet with warm water. It smelled strongly of alcohol when I took off the masks.
My feet started peeling on the fourth day after I put on the mask. It started peeling on the heels and soles of my feet, but some people experience peeling immediately on the front of their feet. The front of my feet didn't start peeling until the next week.
The peeling didn't feel painful at all to me. In fact, if I didn't see my feet, I wouldn't have known that they were peeling. The peeling lasted for about 10 days, which makes it a total of 2 weeks for the entire process. Since this only promises to shed dead skin, and not necessarily hydrate or moisturize the feet, I made sure to moisturize my feet really well each day with lotion.
Overall, I was happy with the process. My feet didn't become baby soft instantly, but the mask did reduce some roughness around my heels and outer part of my feet. I wouldn't do this monthly, but definitely seasonally.
