REVIEW

Okay, are you guys ready? Of course you are. You won't even be here if you aren't interested kan asdiojkladas

Okay, so I'm just gonna tell you the story of my super duper cracked heels and super dry feet dulu. Okay so what are my feet issues? I have cracked heels, they are REALLY REALLY DRY/DEHYDRATED and I have a habit of pulling the dry skin so sometimes sampai bleeding sebab tarik kulit kuat sangat. Yes, it was horrible, but I love to pull dry skin. Jadi habit pulak bila duduk diam, duk main kaki, kopek-kopek kulit. Entah ler. My feet are so dry because I don't really take care of them like I used to. I mean I used to take care of them like a baby ya know, rajin gila sapu lotion and whatnot but I reached 1 point in my life where I felt so exhausted to maintain everything. I rarely use lotions at that one point and it was downhill from there. Things got worse when I started working in an air-conditioned office, my skin got really dry and now it's like a bit too late, moisturizing cream pon macam tak helping langsung sebab kulit dah jadi keras ya know? I have like kulit keras area dekat 1 finger, my tapak kaki, like very small area lah. Then my toe nails are just the driest of them all. Percaya tak kalau aku cakap aku potong kuku kaki only once for 1-2 months. Dia punya panjang tu ya ampun slow gilaaaaaaaaaaaaa ok?

So this is my ugly foot, it's really dry/dehydrated. I'm so embarrassed by them.

So I was browsing Deciem's website and I saw this Heel Chemistry. I didn't want to buy it because it is quite pricey, its RM80++ for a fricking foot cream weh? Aku beli kat Guardian aku boleh dapat less than RM20 kot? But since it has few good reviews, I feel like I need to give it a try. Kalau tengok website dia, ada 6 reviews je but the reviews pon kalau baca quite convincing jugak. Tapi sebenarnya aku beli on a whim jugak because I hate heel balm/cream, they are very uncomfortable on my feet. I don't know bout you guys but if kaki aku panas, my whole body pon jadi panas. So I cannot put stuff on my feet, kalau letak something yg balmy memang sis berpeluh.

Okay, so let's talk about the product. So the packaging is quite nice, I like it, it's like a matte transparent tube? HAHAHAH apa benda Pah. It's not really a clear tube lah, dia macam opaque sikit. Hah entah la macam tulah. So it has 100ml of product which is NOICE sebab biasa standard heel balm ke packaging diorang quite small, I googled and most of them 50g macam tu je but consider cheap lah jugak sebab kalau kali 2 pon tak sampai harga Heel Chemistry pon 😅

So how's the texture Pah? Heavy tak? I wouldn't say it's heavy even though it's quite creamy but it's quite easy to squeeze the tube unlike the HA3 Hand Hydrator, that one is really THICCCCC. Anyways, the texture feels really pleasant on the skin and it sinks right up into your feet like really fast. Think of like putting gel cream on your face and it's like ZUPPP into the skin kan? But this one with your feet? That's damn amazing weh? I have a very thick feet skin so I feel like it's impossible for any lotion to be absorbed into the skin but not this mofo. But if your feet are sweaty, you're gonna have a bit of problem with this cream. I don't really have sweaty feet but sometimes I don't know why my feet rasa macam moist gila. But it's not damp pon to the touch, I think it's because of this Heel Chemistry, so dia macam hydrating the feet kan. So far, I don't smell any odor but maybe because I pakai selipar pon so kaki tak tertutup? IDK man.

Oh and it does have a scent, quite soothing lah sebab bau peppermint kan. Standard bau foot cream lah. Hahahaha.

Texture is quite creamy, not balmy, lightweight unlike other heel cream/balm

Kalau baca Directions dia, dia cakap sini you could use it for elbows, knees, hands, mana-mana area yang suffering from extreme dryness. I don't really use it for my elbows sebab macam malas. Haha.

Feet is definitely not super rock hard anymore but at this time I didn't scrub my feet hence the dryness on my toes.

I realized after few days I used this cream, my feet felt so NOICE. Super soft and smooth like a baby's bum. And selalu aku boleh rasa tau kulit tebal and now, rasa macam senang je nak lipat-lipat kaki ni, I mean takde lah lipat but takde rasa sakit sebab kulit keras dah. And another thing I noticed, my toe nails macam dah tak dry macam dulu and dia macam cepat gila tumbuh? If you can see the photos below aku letak so korang tengok yang gambar 10 & 14 July punya?????? Like cepat gila????????????  Nampak kan? NAMPAK TAK? Selalunya dalam masa 4 hari kuku aku macam tak ingin nak tumbuh pon! (Dalam gambar maybe tak clear sangat but trust me, my toe nails are so nais now! Nampak macam after 3 minggu buat pedicure tau. Betui... Tak tipu.

So when on day 6-7 macam tu I decided to clip my toe nails because it's gotten longer and I have like hard skin dekat toe ni and biasa kalau aku potong kuku kaki, aku akan potong kulit tu jugak because the skin is like so hard so I'm like whatever, buang jela kan. I don't like how it feels ya know? Then after few days aku macam perasan kenapa jari-jari kaki sis lembut gila nih? So at that time baru aku terfikir, maybe if I went to foot spa dulu maybe dia lebih effective? Because my heels are still cracked kan and I didn't even scrub my feet masa mula-mula pakai ni. Punya lah malas. I still haven't go to any foot spa sebab takde masa, maybe this weekend lah kot aku pergi because I really want my heels jadi cantik balik!

So on Day 9 baru aku scrub my feet and all and OH MUH LORD. It looked so perfect in my eyes, like OMG, am I gonna get my teenage feet back? LOL. No I'm kidding but seriously, the dryness and all has reduced so much and I showed my feet to my husband and he said "Wow looks so much better than before! But the heels still cracked tho". K. I felt like my heels cannot be saved but it's definitely better than before. So I assume, you really need to treat your feet dulu baru boleh maintain. Haaa macam tulah. I feel like 14 days pon mesti my feet still ugly AF jugak kan.

Scrubbed my feet at this time, the dryness at my toes are still visible but it looked so much better than before kan??

So Day 14. Definitely can see a lot of difference. My ugly ass feet are not that ugly anymore. And perasan tak my feet nampak healthier? Like you can see the redness and all, tak nampak macam kaki auntie dah. My heels are still cracked but it's not as ugly as before! I don't know why I didn't take a pic of my ugly ass heels before. Maybe I'm too embarrassed. Yela, buruk ok. Sis malu.

Healthier looking foot kan? 😬

Look at my dem heels. It's getting so much better than before! Sumpah malu nak tunjuk gambar before (tapi lupa nak ambik pon) but look at them! They looked so much better than 2 weeks ago!

I found 1 review on Makeup Alley yang aku rasa sama sangat experience dia dengan aku, except I've never used a chemical exfoliant on my feet. So yeah. you guys can read it down below.


To be completely honest, it is a bit pricey for a foot cream. But I truly believe in it and I feel like there's no heel balm like this Heel Chemistry. This is totally a different kind of heel cream. It's not as balmy, it's very comfortable, I sleep like a baby thru out the night. This is everything to me. I usually hate putting creams on my feet because I just don't like it. Other heel balms can be quite slippery but not this one. But of course you gotta give it a lil time to absorb into the skin, yes it is kinda absorbs fast but for few minutes to rilek dulu k?

Instant Hydration? F YEAH
Texture? F YEAH
Evenness? OH HECK YEAH
Softness? OH MUH LORD HOLY MOTHER F YEAH
Cooling? GURRRRRRR DON'T EVEN
Below Surface Hydration? GURRRRR FO SHO

Pros
Instant hydration
Healthier looking feet
Toe nails are getting healthier too
Great for maintaining feet after pedicure/foot peel/foot spa

Cons
A bit pricey :/
100ml tak cukup~~~ I've used 80% of product now :/ (I use it twice daily ok T_T)

Final thoughts: You know what I'm gonna say about it... Come on... I FRICKING LOVE THIS?????????? It changed my life, I never thought I could have beautiful feet again. It's promising, so I'm gonna continue using it. I will update you guys once I go to foot spa and stuff. LOL. If you guys are suffering from extreme dryness, I highly, HIGHLY recommend this!
