Review: TONYMOLY Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid.

The things I do for you people. Show of hands, who's done a foot peel? I'd first heard about it when Baby Foot started getting really popular and the stories and reviews were fascinating and horrifying. So, obviously I had to try it for blog science. Baby Foot is the original and it's also kind of expensive but I read somewhere that the TONYMOLY Shiny Foot version was quite effective and it's waaaaay cheaper if you buy it on Amazon so that's what I did.

The package arrived a few weeks ago and it contains two plastic double-layer booties, two disturbing bags of liquid and a sample of foot cream. I decided it had to happen immediately so I followed the directions which involve putting on the booties (make sure to open both layers) and pouring the liquid in them. This step is COLD AND UNPLEASANTLY SQUISHY. I taped up the booties with the provided tabs and put socks over the whole thing so I could walk around. Then I sat on my ass for two hours while it brewed my feet. 

I rinsed as directed and used the foot cream and then I waited. For days. DAYS AND DAYS. The package claims the peeling will start in 4-6 days. This is a total lie. On day seven I was real mad because my feet looked exactly the same. Finally, on day nine I noticed some peeling action! Lizard feet! I'm now on day thirteen and things are REALLY GROSS Y'ALL. I am shedding skin like a lizard and I have to wear socks all the time. It's fascinating and gross and kind of wonderful? I don't know. I'm pretty into it. I've been soaking and gently exfoliating to move things along but trying not to mess with my feet too much. 

I'm hoping at the end of this I'll have baby unicorn feet because that's the goal, right? Anyway, I highly recommend TONYMOLY Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid if you want to have a fun yet horrifying foot experience. And if anyone has tried the Baby Foot version, please let me know if it's superior! 


  1. I've tried both and both seem to work about the same for me. What did help a lot from test #1 to future tests, was to soak my feet in warm water for 20 to 30 minutes every day after the first soaking. This really helped - I was able to start seeing massive shedding earlier, after day 4, rather than day 9-10.

    1. Ah, thank you! Great to know.

    2. I read that tip also - soak my feet every day. It really made a difference I've done both and use the TonyMoly because dollars.

  3. Oh my, the pictures in the Amazon reviews are SO GROSS yet I'm still super intrigued.

  4. I just did the one I got from Anthro last night....waiting to see what happens.

  5. I'm addicted to Shiny Foot :-| Subsequent uses won't take as long for the peeling to start, so yay! And the one time I put socks on over the booties, my results weren't as good, I think because the goo wasn't pooling around my calluses but getting pushed up to the tops of my feet. I haven't tried any of the others for comparison...

  6. GAHHHH. I think I would rather have the tiny fish nibble on my feet. How do the chemicals know when to STOP?

  7. I am OBSESSED with these foot peels! Tried the Baby Foot and it totally did nothing for me. (I think maybe because I didn't soak my feet for half hour in water before putting on the booties??) I've tried the Tony Moly with great results and I've also tried the ones from Purederm, also with great results. I think it really helps if you soak your feet in very warm water half hour before putting on the booties and also keeping the booties on for 1.5 hours.
    I've also found these foot masks work better in weather when I constantly wear socks or tights because my feet sweat a little (TMI? Sorry!) throughout the day, and that seems to hel pwith the peeling. However, I guess it makes sense to soak them each day, like someone previously suggested.
    I've also tried the fish pedicure that someone mentioned. I loved it! But I try not to think too much abou tit because hmmmm, gross.(But I've researched, and by that mean "Googled a lot" and the fish ped seems like it is safe.)
