I was recently given the opportunity to try this product by Jota Sox. I was so excited to have the opportunity to review this product as I am one of many who struggle with dry feet on a regular basis. Although not as severe as some cases I have seen, my constantly dry heels have often made me a bit unsure about wearing sandals.
About Jota Sox :
Jota Sox are the newest, most innovative foot care product on the market today. Jota Sox were developed to meet a growing need among podiatrists, dermatologists, spas and individuals who were looking for a product to increase the effectiveness of both prescription and over the counter moisturizers.
These form fitting, disposable socks help repair rough, dry feet in a unique way. Jota Sox enhance the effects of prescription and over-the-counter lotions to heal and moisturize feet faster.
Jota Sox include soft and comfortable disposable latex or non-latex socks and outer cotton socks that you put on after the application of your favorite cream, lotion or ointment. Jota Sox act as a barrier, allowing the lotion to absorb deeply into your feet instead of absorbing into a cotton sock. The cotton sock is worn over the Jota Sox, which holds the Jota Sox in place and adds the heat needed to allow maximum penetration of the applied moisturizer.
If you can rub cream or lotion on your feet and put on socks, you are on your way to softer, smoother, healthier feet.
I was a bit unsure when I first opened the box of Jota Sox. The kit consists of a pair of latex or non-latex disposable socks and a pair of cotton socks.
The directions are as follows:
- apply your favorite lotion, cream or ointment
- slip on easy to wear disposable socks followed by cotton socks
- relax for a couple of hours or rest for the night
- remove hours later revealing noticeably smoother feet
The first night I tried the Jota Sox, I put on the lotion as directed and then “slipped on the disposable socks, followed by the cotton socks”. I stood up to put the lotion away and had a very strange sensation of walking on jell-o. It took a few minutes to get used to the feeling, but I went to bed and slept that night with no problem.
The next morning I woke and removed the socks. My feet were noticeably softer without being greasy. It was really interesting. The next few nights I repeated the process and within a few days I noticed a marked improvement in the condition of my feet.
I have since washed and reused the Jota Sox twice for a touch up, but have had great success in finding the product that has permanently helped my feet.
