Recently, I had a chance to try out Heeltastic Cracked Foot Repair Cream. I’ve had problems with my feet most of my adult life and I’ve tried a number of remedies to help sooth them. As with most ‘as seen of TV’ products I was more than a little skeptical about a product promising a lot. Unfortunately, most don’t deliver. But, how does Heel Tastic stack up? Read more to find out…

Basically, Heeltastic is a roll-on balm made from various herbal oils. According to the manufacturer, the oils used provide moisturizing of dry, cracked, skin while also having some anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. The active ingredient is dimethicone, a common component in skin protective lotions. They also tout exotic oils like karanja and neem that have good reputations for natural healing.
The packaging for the Heeltastic Cracked Foot Repair Cream is the typical plastic card type. Fortunately, it’s is perforated so you don’t need a blowtorch to break open the package. The balm is in a roll-on container, much like a deodorant roller.
The scent of the Heeltastic dry foot balm is sort of a citrus/coconut smell, strong but not unpleasant to me. Other people may find it a bit on the strong side though.
Applying the Heeltastic lotion is quite easy, just like deodorant, you roll it on. It sticks on dry foot skin quite well. I would recommend using a foot scraper, like the PedEgg, or a foot scrub and wash your feet before you apply this ointment in order to remove any dead skin. The dry foot balm goes on feeling quite smooth and cooling without burning raw areas, a common problem with some foot lotions that contain alcohol and other irritants. The moisturizing effect is almost immediate and will help to quickly sooth a painful crack than can making walking difficult. I also recommend wearing socks once you apply HeelTastic since it’s very slippery and to keep the medication on your skin.
I found the effects from Heeltastic Cracked Foot Repair Cream to last about 4-6 hours, depending on how much I’m on my feet. If you can, I’d recommend reapplying the balm to your most severely dry cracked areas rather often at first. This helped me a lot with a very painful crack on the sole of my foot. Of course, you will need to continue to apply the cream to continue to get the benefits of it.
Heel Tastic isn’t particularly cheap at about $10 for 2 ounces. There are effective dry cracked foot remedies, such as emu oil, that are also decent and less expensive. However, the roll-on delivery system is a big plus and probably helps prevent some waste.
You should be able to find Heeltastic Cracked Foot Repair Cream in local stores and online. Some of the best deals though are online since most stores sell it at full retail. Don’t pay more than about $10 for a 2 ounce container and look for multi-package deal that can save you money.
