O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Exfoliating Foot Cream Review

O’Keeffe’s exfoliating foot cream is an exfoliating lotion that claims to moisturize, soften and repair extremely dry, rough, cracked feet for softer feet and 48 hours of hydration in one use.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Urea, Cetyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Lactic Acid, Hydrogenated Poly(C6-14 Olefin), Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Ceteareth-20, Sodium Hydroxide, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Polyquaternium-10, Beeswax, Propylene Glycol, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Disodium EDTA, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Laureth-4, Laureth-23, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Diazolidinyl Urea

This contains moisturizing and occlusive ingredients, beeswax, urea and lactic acid (for gentle exfoliating).

Directions: Apply as often as needed to dry, rough skin.

My feet are often dry with callused, rough and cracked heels. I have been using the exfoliating lotion for a few months now. I also use O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand lotion.

This is a very thick lotion (much different in texture to their hand lotion) that smells like peppermint and provides a cooling sensation to the feet. I apply it in the evening. It rubs in nicely and does not leave a greasy or sticky residue.

As above, after the first application, my heels are much improved, hydrated and softer. With continued use for 2 weeks, the cracked, very dry skin is gone, though a bit of hardened skin remains. Like O’Keeffe’s hand lotion, the foot lotion works very well in softening, moisturizing and repairing the skin. I think Heel Chemistry might work a little better on the tougher calluses, so I alternate the two every few evenings. I will continue purchasing O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Exfoliating Foot Cream.

As part of my foot routine, once a week I soak my feet in Epsom salt for 10 to15 minutes, buff with a baked silica glass pumice stone, exfoliate with KP Bump Eraser and leave on for about 10 minutes, then apply O’Keeffe’s foot cream for very soft, smooth and moisturized feet.

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Review

Working Hands is a hand cream that claims guaranteed relief for extremely dry hands. It is said to instantly boost moisture levels, create a protective layer on the hands and help prevent moisture loss. The cream comes in a jar and a tube, with different ingredient lists.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Isopropyl Myristate, Ceteareth-20, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Sodium Hydroxide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Paraffin, Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Diazolidinyl Urea

Glycerin and propylene glycol are humectants. Stearic acid has been shown to protect the skin’s surface from water loss and support the protective barrier of the skin. Isopropyl myristate, cetyl alcohol and cetearyl alcohol are emollients. Dimethicone is an occlusive and prevents water loss.

Directions: Apply a small amount and massage in; applying too much will result in stickiness.

I frequently get very dry hands with cracks in the thumb creases and dry, rough cuticles, particularly now with winter weather and increased hand washing. Working Hands is a thick-ish cream with no scent. I apply this once a day in the evening before bed. It provides immediate relief of my dry hands. It absorbs quickly and is not heavy, greasy or sticky, but leaves a silky, protective layer on the skin.

The morning after one application, my hands felt very smooth and moisturized. There was still some dryness on the knuckles and the thumb creases. After one week, the cuticles look better and my hands overall look and feel healthy, moisturized and smooth, and the dry thumbs and knuckles are improved. After hand washing, my hands still felt protected and smooth.

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands is great and I would repurchase. They have an overnight treatment that I’ll probably buy and will use the regular tube during the day. I recently purchased O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Exfoliating cream as well.
