We’re willing to put up with a lot in the name of callous-free feet, but soaking them in acid-filled booties in a bid to peel off the skin of the entire foot? Not something we’d ever considered until we heard about Baby Foot. The Japanese import promises such deep exfoliation that layers of dead tissue can sometimes fall off in sheets, leaving behind childlike, never-touched-the-earth smoothness. iVillage contributor Kristin Booker agreed to treat her feet with kid, um, booties to tell you whether Baby Foot lives up to the hype.

I'll be honest- this kind of creeps me out- but it also sounds fantastic!  Would you give it a try?

How could I resist reading a post with this subject line, LOL!

I don't think I would try it.  The reason we have calluses is that we *use* our feet.  Calluses build up to protect us.  If you've ever gotten a little obsessive with a callus file and gotten down to that baby skin underneath, you've realized why you have the callus to begin with.

You make a good point!  I would think your feet would be super sensitive after doing this.  Not sure if it would be worth it or not!  I hate having a dry skin on my feet- but would hate to take it too far too.
