Review: O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream
O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream is a highly concentrated and deeply nourishing cream that relives your feet and toes, even the most dry, rough, cracked, damaged, and in need of “foot therapy.”
Whether it is from working in a certain industry, wearing uncomfortable shoes, standing or walking a lot, the weather, or simply natural dryness that happens to us all, we all need help sometimes in repairing damage with our feet that over time can become quite painful and create tension, redness, calluses, and other unsightly issues.
We may ignore it or try several treatments, some which can be fairly expensive, that simply fail to even work at times. But if it does not go away and you’re still in pain, there is no reason to stay that way.
When I first heard about O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream (and it was the first time I was in need of a product for the feet and toes), it was after doing research on their famed hand cream that soothes and repairs even the most damaged and cracked working hands.
With a reference like that, plus all the reviews and the modest price point, I was sold very easily.
As a bonus, they are sold in packs of different sizes ranging from 1- 12 for value, so if you and/or your whole family love it, you can get an even better value.
My first time trying it out, it was rich in texture without being greasy, sticky, or too heavy on the feet. It did not feel irritating or create any reaction even with very sensitive skin.
It felt extremely soothing and was completely odorless (I see this as a positive with a foot cream), and the best part was after a few minutes, it felt fine to start walking around without any slip, put socks, slippers, or booties on, and no residue came off on any sheets, linens, or surfaces.
You can put it on twice daily and in the morning if you prefer, I personally used it once a day before bedtime and then added socks (exfoliating first for added benefits), and it felt amazing.
Within a few days, my feet felt smoother, softer, and looked visibly more repaired without any redness and no cracks or any scaly texture.
For those with more significant damage, you may have to wait a week or so to start seeing a significant change or final difference in the appearance, but should definitely start noticing relief and healing benefits within only a couple or few days of use.
It not only felt and looked great, the price seemed like a steal in comparison to more expensive pedicure and salon treatments available that either do not work or you have to keep getting every couple of weeks.

With that in mind, while it is is hard to find many downsides to using the product, here are a look at some key pros and cons to bear in mind prior to purchase:

- Helps to heal cracks, very dry rough feet, scaly skin, flaky patches, and calluses (can work for even the most dry and damaged feet)
- Does not contain any scent or fragrance
- While it is not marketed this way, in a pinch a lot of customers use O’Keefe’s Foot Cream on the hands as well (the ingredients are nearly identical, it is just slightly richer)
- Creates a protective barrier on the feet to prevent against future damages and irritation
- If applied after washing and exfoliating the feet, the cream is even more absorbing and penetrates the feet with even more moisture and hydration

- You can apply it every night (or as often as desired) as a treatment solution without worrying about any messes or spills
- You can wear socks a few minutes after applying the cream, again without worrying about any spills, messes, or damages to the socks (or residue)
- The cream will soften corns, but not remove them, and should not be applied to blisters or wound areas
- If you use this and do not have very dry or dehydrated feet, the cream may just feel greasy or sticky when applied, so it’s important to only use it if there is a specific need
