I prefer to go shoe-less. I love shoes, but if it's warm enough to go shoe-less, I do. And since I primarily work from home for my day job these days, I don't HAVE to wear shoes very often. Which means my feet get very rough and dry; especially my heels.
In the past I had tried pedicures, emery boards, pedi-eggs and pumice stones but was never really happy with the results.
I had made this soap in a fiber workshop a few years ago. It's a commercial soap with alpaca felted around it. I kept it in the kitchen for scrubbing our hands after especially dirty jobs.
A few weeks ago my dry, rough heels had become painful and no amount of lotion was helping. So I decided to try this felted soap on my heels when I take a shower.
My heels felt a little better after the first use, so I decided that I'd use it for the next several days and see how things go.
I am happy to report that after a couple of weeks, my heels are now smooth and comfortable. I think it might be worth keeping a bar in each shower.
