Doesn't heel cracks
I have been using this product for about 6 weeks now and whilst it has made the already soft parts of my feet softer, it has done nothing for my cracked heels. I put it on 2-3 times a day.
I can’t live without it.
I can notice a different after just one use. I get badly cracked heels and this works wonders. Would not look else where for a heel balm.
IF I leave my heels (shamefully) to the severity of the image shown on the box, I will apply as directed and it honestly improves to almost completely heeled in 2 weeks. What they say it does it really does do, and they certainly don’t lie about the timeframe. Love love love this product I can’t fault it.
It's just okay, but I'm sure there are better balms out there
I've had seriously dry skin and cracked heels and toe pads for years. It got to the stage where skin was peeling off and looked pretty horrid. I wanted do something about it. After reading reviews on this website, I decided to try NS-8. After two weeks (application twice a day), there was only a moderate improvement. The heels were still cracked but skin had stopped peeling. I can't really say the improvement was due to NS-8 either because I was also giving the feet a good old grate with one of those metal skin graters you can get at the chemist.
I'm trying a different, and much thicker moisturizer made by Scholls next. I'll review that after another couple of weeks.
Helped severely cracked heels a lot
I had splits in my heels, particularly my right heel where it would be so painful and even sometimes bleed. The splits would appear one at a time or three at a time. My left heel then decided to add to my misery and start splitting as well.
I'm a large lady and know full well that my weight doesn't help (no diabetes thank you health warriors).
I bought a scholl pedi roller head (which is awesome) but I still didn't get all relief.
I tried the heel balm by another maker (Eulactol) which also didn't do that much.
I've found NS-8 Heel Balm...
I had terrible splits in my heel that you could fit a 50 cent piece into! I had tried various other creams that did not help. I could not put any weight on my heel without pain! Within 24 hours of applying ns-8 heel balm i finally got relief, and within 1 week of daily use they were healed. This cream is magic, and i will never be without it. I wish i tried it years ago, i would have avoided constantly painful cracked heels.
Best Heel Cream On The Market!
This cream is absolutely wonderful. Using it just at bedtime with socks rather than twice a day and at bedtime like the packet says, it took a little longer I suppose but the result is the dry skin has visibly thinned, my feet are so soft and smooth! I saw one review about it not working for them and the best advice I have if that is the case, is first to soak your feet in warm water until the excess dry skin is soft. Gently pumice until feet feel smooth, it won't remove even most of the dead skin but that's what this cream is for. Of course if...your feet are very cracked and sore then consult a doctor first. After using the pumice, use this cream on your feet, rub in well and put socks on. Every night after, just use the balm and you will see a difference. It won't happen overnight but it will happen!
Miracle in a bottle!
I have used many lotions that claim to eliminate cracked heels but I think this is the best product. I see improvement instantly and it just gets better with repeated use. I would not wear open shoes otherwise. I use this on my cuticles before I paint my nails and on my hands after I've been cleaning or doing yard work! It doesn't have a "scent". I will say one unusual thing about this product though.... I think it has actually taken some of the colour out of my charcoal carpet. I have a habit of putting it on after a shower and I have no...ticed that over time it has lightened in spots (just heads up for those of you with dark carpet lol). It's long lasting and it isn't greasy! It works well and fast The packaging gives you the impression that you are getting a lot more than you actually get.
Work on my feet all day and have tried many products for my feet. NS-8 has helped in 1 week while others have not worked over months of use.I can now wear my backless shoes again without feeling embarrassed or having to put stockings on to cover the cracks. Love this product. Thank you.
Very happy customer.
This is great - finally something that works!
I am 34 & and spend most of my day in thongs or no shoes - my heels have suffered poorly from it - I was hobbling around less than a week ago with a big split that was so painful. I bought this on a whim from Priceline & started using it on Friday night - by Sunday I could notice a different - the split was healing & my other foot actually looked normal - I am not even a week into using it & its made a huge different. I have tried lots of creams over the past few years but none have I been compelled to write a review about!
Easy to use, cost effective.
Although I was aware of the product and hearing positive things about it, I had never tried it until recently. My heels are pretty good for my age, but as I noticed they were looking a little dry of late and I hate the look of dirty dry heels, I bought some from an online pharmacy without an opportunity to test it. Taking into account that my heels weren't all that bad, I could see and feel a difference straight away - after a week of using it twice daily my heels were smooth and soft, and they've stayed that way so far with just one or two a...pplications per week. I'm sure badly damaged heels would take significantly longer to improve so markedly, but I have absolutely no doubt that they would with this product. It works! Very reasonably priced. Unobtrusive pleasant smell. Nothing at all is wrong with the product itself or the bottle, but I think it's unnecessary to also have it packed in a box, it's wasteful and eliminating that would keep costs down for everyone.
a difference in my feet within days so went out and purchased a large bottle of NS-8 Heel Balm. This heel balm is very effective and was able to quickly turn my rough, cracked feet into soft smooth feet. I am very impressed with this product and will continue using it so that I don't end up with horrible feet again.
All in all NS-8 Heel Balm is a great heel balm - a definite MUST.
- Effective for getting rid of cracked and rough heels
- Works fast
- Is not too expensive
No cons for this product
NS-8 Heel Balm is a fantastic product, I have been using it for years. I use this product on an off when ever I feel that my feet and heels are becoming dry and rough and it always works very well. NS-8 Heel Balm is definitely the way to go.
- Effective heel balm
- Works quickly
- Non greasy
- Packaging (personally I don't really like the current packaging)
- Can be difficult to find in some pharmacies
I would definitely recommend NS-8 Heel Balm, it is the best heel balm that I have tried and I will definitely continue using it. It works well, is reasonably priced, non greasy and fast acting.
NS-8 Heel Balm is fantastic, I found this product to be highly effective and fast acting at restoring rough, dry and cracked feet to a normal condition. I also like that NS-8 Heel Balm is not as greasy as other heel balms.
