Need a GOOD/GREAT foot lotion!!!

Hi everyone!

My feet are horrible! Not trying to gross anyone out but they are dry and peeling and just really scratchy and in need of some major help! I am ready to help them so could you all give me some advice on good lotions for them? I have been told to use plain old Vaseline on them as that is very concentrated and will heal them but does anyone have any better ideas? Would Medicated Vaseline work better or a special lotion??? I need to know!

Thanks!

Bag balm. It has lanolin in it, which is healing. Perto jelly will only hold moisture in. It won't penetrate the skin to add moisture. Goop up your feet real good, and then cover with socks at bedtime. Bag Balm is REALY greasy, and it will stain, so use an old pair of socks. But your feet will be so soft in few days. Works good on elbows and hands, too. Just remember to cover up. It holds the moisture in, and keeps your sheets from getting yucky.

I also like a product called, "cucumber heel therapy" made by Creative Nail Design. It helps aid in the repair of dry, cracked heels. And it smells really good too! You can also use it on dry elbows and knees.

i was just at the beauty supply the other night looking for a buffing board (which worked wonderfully! thankyou who ever told me that!) anyway, i remembered someone saysing something about Peti Cure foot lotion, and i saw some and thought i would try it.... ooohh girl! does it feel good! I use one of those things to get rid of deal skin/calouses then put that on, and it feels WONDERFULL!

i also tried some of that CND Scentsations (i got Wildflower & Chamomile) and i LOVE It! i dont put it on my feet, but it is good too!

I havent treid that one - right now for my hands im using the cnd, and i also tried the Seche silk - its nice, but i think i like cnd better! :) I would LOVE to try the solarbutter, but unfortunately no one around here carries it, so i have to order all my suff off the net. And since it seems like i have done alot of that lately, i think i'll wait a few more days before i go at it again! :-)

Look slike we still havent heard from Goddess - have you heard anything? I hope everyone is doing well.

I've got Solar Butter!

LUCKY ME!!

It really is fantastic, and despite being so thick, it soaks right in.

The only problem is I keep getting the urge to eat it.....

I'm going to have to get me some of that!

Something that smells good enough to eat is definately worth having!
