A Most Favored Beauty Most Unusual Post

Baby Foot is a popular epidemic that has swept the Asian market. It’s basically a system that you use to make your feet smoother by the way of a peeling effect. Reader’s have viewed my post for Baby Foot over 10,000 since I originally posted in back in 2009!

I guess alot of folks are into foot peeling!

In honor of the huge response to the post, I’m reposting it today for you to enjoy again or if you’re new you’re in for a treat.

Please put down your food and drink prior to jumping ahead though…it’s kinda gross.

This article was posted in 2009. If you’re curious about Baby Foot and wanting to try it you can grab it on E-bay or but be warned this stuff isn’t for the weaklings!

Leave it to the love of my life, Rows, to discover the weirdest sh–….ahem the weirdest stuff on the planet.

Here’s the deal if you’re eating at the moment, drop it, as this is a gross post.

Jump for the best Beauty Most Unusual post to date!

Now the Muse knows a thing or three about Asian Cosmetics…heck she even knows about the weird unusual items that grace the Asian market.

Her fav?

Foot peels.

Now I’ve seen foot peels before, hell I’ve even seen ones that have urine in the mix…so disturbing but I can honestly say I’ve never see anything like this.

Check it.

Beauty Foot Treatment was something I discovered on JPMon a zillion years ago. I actually never used it because I couldn’t read the box and was terrified that it would eat my foot off. Glad I was smart enough to avoid it as the picture below prove it does eat some of your foot off ha!

Gross right?

How freaking crazy is that?! It’s like growing new skin! Holy Jebus! It’s probably one of the weirder items I’ve seen since it actually works. You see Rows, is stupidest enough to try it and it worked for her. It’s ok I can call her stupid, crazy cat lady, whatever…we be best mates so she’s cool with me taking the piss out of her.


I’m scared, hold me. I don’t think I could even attempt it. I get a pedi once a week and that’s plenty for me. I really think that the bottom of your foot should be ever so slightly hard as it offers cushion and protection when you walk. This is literally like having a baby’s foot, I could imagine using it and having to learn how to walk again afterward.

No likey.

But that’s Beauty Most Unusual for you kids.

If I haven’t made you gag enough today you can check out this link for further images (its for a foot peeling competition!).

What do you think?


Would you attempt a foot peel?

    I want to try this SOOO bad but I have been putting it off since it’s $20 at the Japanese market. Not a bad price but there are so many way cuter things I keep wanting to buy lol. Maybe soon I will get it once my “must have ASAP” list goes down lol.

    • the Muse

      tammie you’re braver than me! I’m scared to try it ;-D!

  • Tammie

    But I should mention also I have gross dry scaly skin by my heel which is why I want to try it. I do agree that the bottom of your feet need to be at least somewhat tough for your own comfort. My feet chafe enough as it is lol.

    • the Muse

      tammie be careful though b/c you’re used to that tougher skin so this would be like learning to walk again lol! you’ll be sensitive/tender after use!

      • Tammie

        Yeah that’s my main problem, other than the urine you mentioned X________X;;;

  • Tammie

    Looking at the pics though maybe I will see if a pedicure helps first lol.

  • Cj

    This is both very disturbing and slightly interesting lol, But I think I’ll just stick with my pedegg lol :$

    • the Muse

      pedi for me too cj! I’m scared to have my feet going a peelin’!

  • anna

    They do this at some asian salon/message places. My sisters friend had this done and she didn’t mention anything about it hurting but she did say her skin slide right off and it was insanely disgusting. Her feet were also seriously soft and smooth afterwards.

    • the Muse

      I haven’t tried it colette, too scared 🙂 but from reviews I read it doesn’t hurt during the soak but your feet are left feeling tender after…drier skin gives a bit of a cushion on the bottom of your feet and this basically removes ALL that dryness and gives you a baby foot it’s kinda like learning to walk again ;-D! I also hear it makes feet a bit smelly.

    • Tannc

      Soaking hurts and annoying.
      Peeling, no until you cant stand to see your feet and strting to peel yourself. Ouch I was bled!

  • winni

    I may have just thrown up in my mouth a bit. But that’s my fault as you warned us!

  • Majick

    I guess this is better than sticking your feet in a bucket of tiny flesh eating fish. LOL

  • Ruth

    since i’m a glutton for punishment i looked at more of the pics *eew*
    i don’t think that i would try this unless i really had some serious scaley skin.

  • Amy

    I keep up with my feet so I wouldn’t need this but I can imagine that if you had a huge callas problem that this would be safer to use than than a medal foot file or callas razor. This isn’t nearly as invasive or scary, just a fruit acid peel. Since Asians tend remove their shoes when in the home I can see how treatments like this would be popular. I would totally try this! I get the ick factor but don’t really understand why people would be actually afraid of it. We use harsher stuff to exfoliate our faces!

    • the Muse

      same here amy otherwise I’d have dry, cracked feet if I didn’t ;-/ I dunno, I’m scared I’d be tender after use that’s what scares me most!

  • Sara

    Oh man, I have to check out the ingredients on this jazz. My feet are ridiculous in the summer with the skin and the dryness and the cracking. If I just “let them be” they’ll be splitting in another couple of weeks. Splitting heels=bleeding and ouchies. 🙁 That damn pedi-egg just can’t keep up with summer feet.

      • Sara

        *lol* I could see that! It’s the worst when you have freshly painted nails and you accidentally chip them on the “grater” side…ugh…

  • Comrade Garlic

    I did this about a month ago. It wasn’t as dramatic as the pictures, which disappointed me. But it was fun. I got 10 days of enjoyment out of it (yes, I have issues). No tenderness when walking or standing. My toe nails are no longer discolored and my feet have yet to become beastly. I would do it again.

  • Angelica W

    I got it for my mom (guinea pig!) because she has some funkay heels! I think I paid 19 bucks for it at an Asian market.

    It worked for her, she got tons of peeliing, except where her heels was the most callous-y, so the peeling agent probably doesn’t go too deep. No pain according to her, but she said the scaly skin just grew right back. It’s only recommended to be used once a season, so she didn’t want to use it too frequently. Plus, it’s expensive for regular use. All in all, a bit of a disappointment. Hope this helps!

    • the Muse

      angelica wow really? the dry skin came back? So it’s kinda pointless to bother with this than :-/

  • Tannc

    Hi Muse,

    Greeting from Bangkok! I tried this thing on Jan. Well, that’s plastic sock hurt. The AHA thing was soooo itchy. Was it peel my feet? Yes and I was bleeding cozI I peel myself.

    My co-worker saw my feet and thought that I got deadly disease.

    I wont try it again 🙁

    • the Muse

      hi tannc! oh gosh that sounds awful 🙁 That’s why I was scared…wasn’t sure if I’d have a bad reaction to it or not :-/ Glad I never tried! I hope your feet are well again!

  • Quinctia

    Never. Never ever ever.

    (Granted, I think a ped-egg or pumice stone would also draw blood in one swipe, so I already recoil in horror from a lot of these rough skin solutions.)

    • the Muse

      jen, I might be sick to admit it but I’d totally dig that ;-D I pick scabs, pimples, etc…so this would be an absolutely joy lol!

  • Lauren

    I’d try it. I have terrible dry skin on my feet that seems like no pedi or ped egg can get rid of! When I get home from my vacation I’m heading to the oriental market to see if I can find it.

  • Shayne A

    Musey, I would do this. I would totally do this. But then again, I’m the one who is fascinated by blackhead removal videos on YouTube. Why is that so fascinating to me??

    • the Muse

      shayne why am I so fascinated about picking scabs and popping pimples? haha ;-D

  • SJG

    Wow, this is like a chronic skin picker’s fantasy come true.

  • Amanda Elisabeth

    I can’t even lie, I’d totally try this if I could get my hands on it.

    I would just be afraid because only certain areas of my feet are bad enough to want to do this….I feel that it would make the rest of my feet too tender.
