have you tried the Vaseline trick?

I have heard you can put vaseline on your feet and put socks on them for the entire night and in the morning you will wake up with really smooth feet. Have you tried this trick and it is true? I also heard this about your hands and gloves too. 

If you have do you use regular socks and gloves or do you use the soft ones?

Yes and yes it works but you need to wrap your feet with plastic wrap before putting the socks on otherwise the Vaseline seeps through the socks and onto the sheets. Vaseline is a royal pain to get out of fabric.

Easier trick and less obnoxious to get out of fabric - after showering apply a mix of baby oil (a few drops) and thick body cream. Slather that one then socks. You don't have to leave it on over night though only for a 1/2 hour.

Never heard it or done it. I always heard to put lotion and then socks on.

 I've done and yes it works...on both my feet and hands.  I use regular socks...on my feet and hands.

Its best to do it after you exfoliate.

Google to see how bad and how much chemicals are in vasoline. You are absorbing it into your body. Try our all natural salves the same way www.honeykissed.yolasite.com

I use urea cream. It's a prescription but they do have it in a lower dose OTC.

I'm really not a fan of vaseline but I've heard it makes your skin super soft.  I couldn't deal with wearing socks to bed!
