I have always had horrifically ugly cracked heels. Bought all the foot creams. Tried all the products - PedEgg (which worked well but would become dull after a couple of uses), pumices, feet brushes for the shower, expensive Barielle foot cream, etc. Slathered my feet at night then put socks on (but didn't do it every night, I would forget). Had manicurists buff my heels to death and admonish me and say I have to moisturize every night. Would nod my head and go home with relatively smooth heels but would still have rough spots. Well I was in the supermarket and just happened to see this, in the 2 oz size and thought I would try it, what do I have to lose? It was an immediate improvement -- after just one application. I didn't even put it on right before bed. My heels now look NORMAL and I had a pedicure today and now my heels look AMAZING!! And she didn't even have to buff them for a long time! I was concerned about the urea/aluminum as well but my husband/doctor says it is fine. I do wash my hands thoroughly after applying. TRY IT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE except your disgusting dry cracked heels!!! I can't wait to show my kids my gorgeous feet, I keep forgetting to show them, they will be thrilled! I'm going to tell everyone about it, even random strangers, who have cracked heels, I'm not shy! I'm buying the Flexitol hand cream right now, it's got to be incredible. THANK YOU!!!

I've been relying on this product for years to keep my heels healthy. I had tried everything on the market and nothing could even compare to the original formula of this heel balm. Because I order so many at a time, I had just begun to run out and ordered more tubes. I opened one up and was stunned to find a stinky, white oily cream emerge that doesn't even resemble the formula I'm used to. I opened another and the same thing. I called and found out that they did in fact change the formula (I thought I got a bad tube)! It used to be a very rich and creamy yellow cream that never smelled wonderful, but now it's an average, lightweight oily mess that reeks like crazy and stunk up my entire bedroom! It doesn't even feel the same and the smell is just putrid! I am so disappointed! Now I have to start trying other balms again to find something comparable to what this was! If it's not broken, why fix it?!!

        Comments about Flexitol Heel Balm, 4 oz:

        I have a whole drawer full of other products from Bath and Body, drug stores, etc. and nothing ever worked until Flexitrol. It's not greasy at all, like many of the other products I have tried. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I really don't like the smell. It smells like medicine. I have to go wash my hands before going to sleep becuase I don't want to smell it...walking on tip toes to the sink since I just rubbed it all over my heels. I don't mind because it works and that's a small price to pay for nice looking feet!

            My heels were severly cracked. I over heard a converstion at the beauty shop about this product. I went out and bought it right a way. It was a life saver. I have recommended to several people. I even told a friend and he is using on his cracked skin on his fingers. He has tried several other products and was also amazed by this product.

              Comments about Flexitol Heel Balm, 4 oz:

              I tend to get painful heel cracks, particulary in winter months. This product is high in urea, which helps. It will cure any cracks after a few days of use, and regular use prevents cracks from developing.

                After suffering with dry, cracked, painful, heels for years I discovered Flexitol Heel Balm. This stuff really works. I apply a small amount every morning to my heels. They are smooth and crack free now.

                            Product recommends use twice daily. I use only once just prior to putting on stockings. Keeps my heels smooth and has saved countless runs and snags. Great product. I will use again and again.

                                  Previous product was great and worked!
                                  Current lot is not viable; even DANGEROUS to use.

                                  Lot numbers (B)1G92 & (B)1G95 (have tried 2 tubes)
                                  These tubes contain new graphics design.

                                  Product in these tubes is overly dry and solid; it is not absorbing nor viable / beneficial. USE CAUTION: if you apply this on your feet and walk on tile - YOUR COULD SLIP! (It is half tacky and half slick!)

                                  FEXITOL was contacted once and shipped me SAME non-viable product. Then they were not around all week to answer calls nor messages.

                                  Since product in made in Australia; I have to assume that bad lots have made it to retail. And seem to have had a total lack of quality control on receipt in the US.

                                  Stay clear until issues are resolved!
