I did the pedicure process with this set for half an hour as per the steps mentioned in this kit, my feet definitely looked clean and hydrated for the next 12 hours but then it was back to square one. I wore socks after doing this and maybe that helped keep my feet clean. This kit works to remove dead cells on the ankle, however it didn't really work much to remove the tan. Not that happy with the product since VLCC facial and bleach kits work very well for me, but the pedicure one didn't. Hoping to get the desired results with regular use.
