Product Review: Baby Foot

Baby Foot I recommend you buy this product immediately.  I’ve done this treatment twice myself and have also bought it as a gift for several people.  It’s incredible and deserves all the hype. After soaking your feet in the provided booties for a couple of hours, the fruit acids get to work removing all of your dead skin.  It can take up to six days before you start to see

The
