Many of the comments indicate that this product doesn't absorb well etc., which leads me to wonder if the purchasers have used the product correctly; admittedly the instructions are a bit unclear.

This wonderful exfoliant should never be left on the skin, and is not intended to be used as a moisturizer. Rather, it is intended to be used as a manual exfoliator, meaning you apply it to dry skin, say your hands, and rub and rub till slowly the palmitic acid (active ingredient) begins to slough off the dead skin. I think the paraffin is what keeps the product from absorbing, so that you can keep rolling the dead skin off.

After you are done with this manual exfoliation, you must wash the area thoroughly with a detergent of some sort to remove the waxy residue. When I use this on my hands, I do so at the kitchen sink so the dead skin can easily be rinsed away, and I follow up with two hand washings with dishwashing liquid. Even then I sometimes still have some paraffin remaining around my fingernails. Using a manicure brush with the dishsoap, which totally removes it. I also end up with a minor waxy film in my sink, so that needs addressed with dishsoap and a scrubby sponge also.

When I am doing my own pedicure, I sit on the countertop, put my feet in the kitchen sink (I have a very large stainless steel sink) and do the same routine. I often add more product as the initial application begins to dry, and continue rubbing away at my skin, and it keeps on sloughing away dead skin. Often I follow up with a sea salt (oil-based) scrub, and then rinse that off, before ending with the detergent-based cleaning to remove all the residue.

Yes, it is a bit of extra work, but the results are worth it. I would not be able to live without Pretty Feet & Hands! I've used it my entire life, and it is worth the extra effort for the wonderful results that only this product can deliver.

This doesn't work as well as it used to back when it was in the blue bottle. The stuff in the blue bottle was very good at gently exfoliating my feet, this stuff does nothing. Like a previous reviewer, I suspect that they changed the formula.

      Comments about Pretty Feet & Hands Rough Skin Remover, 3 fl oz:

      This product reminds me of my grandmother who introduced me to it when I was a growing up. I've always owed a bottle and I think they did change the formula slightly from the old "blue bottle". This product still works well, as a nurse with frequent hand washings, my hands become very dry and no amount of product will soften them up. I use a quarter sized amount to my hands about every 2 weeks and they are soft and supple for many days thereafter. I introduced Pretty Feet and Hands to my children, who are now adults and I will do the same with their children. As long as they make this product I will continue to buy it.

        This product helps me with the disease I have where I can't shed dead skin cells. Dr Scholl's doesn't work. And there isn't another product out there to help. It does its job taking the dead skin cells off and then you can wash your hands or body in my case clean. Dr Scholl's can't be washed off it leaves a rough film. But I can't buy Pretty feet & hands in the stores anymore...WHY?..Please start selling it any in other stores, not on line.
        Thank you Sue

              I first used this product over 30 years ago, and in recent years, had difficulty locating it. So happy to discover drugstore.com and their wide range of products, including this item. It is wonderful for removing dry skin from hands and feet.

                    I was excited to buy this product after reading some of the reviews on it; when when I tried it myself.... I was very disappointed: it simply doesn't do what it says it should do!
                    The white "residue" that results after rubbing it on my feet, is nothing but dry particles of this liquidy cream after the liquid vanishes from rubbing it into the skin too much; it is NOT dry skin coming off the feet!
                    Not to mention it is a very messy product, too liquidy, it gets all over the place :(
