Flexitol Heel Balm
Advantages: This product actually works
Disadvantages: slightly greasy formula
During last years Christmas party season my tootsies took a bit of a battering with all the extremely high heels and dancing until dawn i'd been doing. It was one night, however, after comming home and removing my killer shoes that i realised the pain i'd been experiencing in my heels was due to the fact that on of myy heels had split and was actually bleeding. This had never happened to me before and it was so painful i booked an appointment with my GP. He prescribed my aqueous cream and i applied it as much as possible every day for a week without imrovment. I could barelty walk by this stage (okay i'm being a drama queen, but it really hurt), so i hobbled my way to boots and scoured their footcare aisle. There were many varieties of lotions and potions to 'cure' cracked heels, so i asked the pharmacist to point my in the direction of the best. Upon which i discovered Flexitol Heel Balm.
How much does it cost: A tad pricey at £5- £6 for 2oz lasting up to twelve months. But the packaging was so convincing (a before picture with gnarly beaten up heels and an after picture of sparkling new ones) that i thought its got to be worth a try.
Product Performance: The packaging advises using this product twice a day until the skin is restored and afterwards to maintain its condition. Upon first application i found it to be quite thick and slightly greasy. The smell of it isnt the most pleasant but i applied it thickly and set my feet up to rest until it was fully absorbed. ***TIP: Use cotton socks after applying to ensure product is fully absorbed into skin, this will also prevent you transferring the product onto anything else, incurring potential stains. After an hour I could already ntice the difference this product had worked. When i had applied it i could feel a slight tingling in the crack on my heel but that is because this product is actually medicated as opposed to some other creams on the market, which are just a deep moisturiser for the foot. After just one week the crack had dissappeared, (I know i sound like an advert from the TV, but i was actually amazed and highly thankful for the results it produced).
Any other information: This product is medically proven for general and diabetic foot care. It contains 25% Urea in a highly concentrated moisturising and emollient base.
Recommendation: I would highly recommend this product as it actually worked for me and allowed me to get back into my heels for New Year's!!!
Summary: Dont spend your money on other sub-standard heel repair products! Buy this one!
