Francesca recommends foot cream

Filed under: Makeup — Francesca @ 8:16 am

Not everything about plus-size fashion and shoes is going to be frilly and lacy and light. We must turn now to what has become of your precious feets after a summer in the hot sun, sitting in the glare of sunlight while you wore your adorable Stuart Weitzman sandals.

Did you scrub/soak/loofah your feet regularly? Did you perhaps, if you could afford it, go for regular pedicures? Did you wear moisterizer on your feetsies at night, covered with socks?


Then you may, perhaps, need this:


Flexitol Heel Balm is the most fast-acting, effective dry-cracking-painful foot skin repair lotion Francesca has ever encountered. It is available in 35 countries, including in the US at large pharmacy chains like Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and Target.

It does not smell as nice as previous moisterizers I’ve recommended (it is not vile, just not perky), but if your heels are parched this is no time to talk about carrot-ginger scents. We must use the heavy artillery, and this stuff really works. Slather it on every evening, cover with socks, and in a few days your feet will thank you.


  1. I was just looking down forlornly at my sad little feet last night wondering what I could do to whip them back into shape, aside from expensive pedicures and paraffin treatments. So thanks, Francesca! I’ll give this a try.

  2. You are absolutely right! I just discovered the CVS house brand knockoff of this stuff last week and I’ve never seen any other kind of lotion or ointment make such a difference to my heels, ever. Holy wow.

    I do get pedicures, it just annoys me to spend money on a new pedicure just to make my heels happy when the old polish is still perfect. With this stuff I’m going to go every three weeks instead of two.

  4. I’m a nurse, so I spend between 12 and 16 hours on my feet most days of the week. I have calluses between my toes, is how bad it is.

    Flexitol works like a champ. If they made something else that solved all my other problems as well as Flexitol works on feet, I’d buy it no matter the cost.

  5. This product is also called Eulactol in Australia.

  6. It seems to me that Manolo for the Big Girl! would have more to do with Shoes repair prices than just about anything else. Another beautiful day in paradise, eh? please give a little more detail for us \’dunderheads\’.
