I put the bags on my feet and sat for an hour on Monday night. By Wednesday my feet had started to peel. It was pretty crazy to see how much and how long it lasted. I'd say for about 4-5 days my feet were still peeling. I also read a lot of the reviews and soaked my feet for 10-15 minutes every night which I think helped start the peeling process. The only thing I wasn't sure about is if I had to keep soaking my feet once they started peeling. I stopped soaking (other than showers) so I'm not sure if this affects the process or not. Overall, my feet feel pretty soft, but I wish my heels peeled a bit more. I don't think my feet are that bad. They don't crack or feel dry, but I wanted more on my heels. Maybe that's just my feet! Since you get two tries, I'll try again maybe in a month and see how much more I can get off. Overall I recommend for a neat experience!
