Oh my gosh, I had been afraid to go and get a pedicure due to my dry, flaky, chapped and cracked heels. I decided to do something and purchased Gold Bond Ultimate healing foot cream. Wow, did this stuff ever do the trick. Within a few days of regular use, my heels were smooth and no longer getting snagged on my socks or pantyhose. I am so thankful for this stuff and it is now part of my skincare routine.
