Barielle Foot Cream

I've been using Barielle Foot Cream for a few years because,let's face it, cracked foot are gross. There are a lot of cracked foot, or cracked heel creams out there but I chose to start using Barielle because I had heard that it was good, and it is, but at around $22 a pop, is Barielle Foot Cream worth it?

For the most part I would have said yes because it seems to work very well. However, if it was working so well why would I need to keep using it? I mean, I was initially looking for cracked heel relief but what if there were a cure for cracked heels? I would prefer to find that.

Having cracked dry heels is no picnic. In fact, don't wear sandals to a picnic or you will be embarrassed for sure. I don't mean to joke about it really because cracked dry heels and cracked feet are a problem for a lot of people and using heel creams seems to be pointless.
Like I said above, Barielle Foot Cream is pretty good but it's a bit pricey in my opinion. Further, Barielle doesn't last that long. I don't mean to pick on Barielle because it is one of the only heel creams I have tried. I'm sure I would feel the same about the other brands which is what brings me to my point.

What if there were a product that actually cured cracked feet, or at least provided cracked heel relief for an extended period? I think the problem facing a lot of people regarding cracked feet is that most heel creams only stay on the surface of the skin.
Cracked Feet, and cracked heel especially, are problematic because the rough skin can become relatively deep compared with the penetration power of most heel creams, including Barielle Foot Cream in my opinion. If the remedy can't penetrate to the source of the problem, how can it help heal it?
Not all cracked dry heels are deep but if they are there is a good chance of infection and the development of chronic problems. Pain is one thing, but in severe cases, a persons ability to function normally can affected.
So if you are using a heel cream to treat your cracked dry heels as I was, keeping your eyes peeled for something new which promises to penetrate the skin and heal from within. So many find a product we like and stick with it. In my case it was Barielle Foot Cream, but what I was actually doing is just becoming a habitual user of a decent product which helped but did nothing to correct the problem.

Heel Tastic is one of the hot new As Seen On TV items causing quite a stir. Calling it a cracked heel cream is a bit of a stretch because it's better than that. It actually is more like a deodorant stick and rolls on as opposed to squirting in your hand and spreading it on like a lotion.
The thing which caught my eye was the claim that Heel Tastic penetrates deep into the rough skin and begins to heal it from the source. No other heel cream that I've considered makes that claim and I thought heel tastic would be worth a try.
I read Heel Tastic reviews online and found at that people really liked it. I did see a few things regarding the ginger smell, (which I happen to like) and that fact that some thought it was a little greasy for a solid stick but those opinion were a minority.
I initially ordered heel tastic online but I now see it in stores for about $10. That's half the price of Barielle Foot Cream so if it works as well or better, then we've discovered something great, haven't we?
