Dry heels? This foot cream 'makes skin look and feel young' — and it's down to $13

What is it?

Cool weather is coming and so is dry, chapped, cracked skin — unless you're well-prepared. We've found a deal on Oukeya Urea Cream, a rich, non-greasy formula that's designed to deeply moisturize tough skin, keeping hands, feet, elbows, knees and other prone areas nice and soft. Shoppers are loving the results, and right now you can get it on sale for just $13 at Amazon.

Beat dry skin this fall with a pea-sized dollop of this stuff.

Why is it a good deal?

Pedicures, depending on where you live, can cost $40 and up. We say hang on to that pedicure money, and pamper your feet with this $13 (down from $16) urea cream instead. Because you need only a small amount, this 5.29-ounce jar of cream can last for months.

Why do I need this?

We all want pedicure-perfect feet, silky-smooth hands, and enviable elbows and knees. This cream can get you closer. It works to heal deep, painful cracks in the skin. How? The formula contains avocado and vitamin E to soothe and moisturize, as well as glycerin, which exfoliates dead skin cells. It also stars allantoin, a compound known for reducing irritation, healing wounds and helping to fade scars. But the main cause for applause: 40% urea.

According to the National Library of Medicine, "urea is widely used in dermatology to improve skin barrier function and as one of the most common moisturizers and keratolytic agents." The NLM adds that "multiple clinical trials on the use of urea-containing formulations have shown significant clinical improvement in many of the dermatosis presenting with scaly and dry skin such as atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, xerosis, seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis, among others."

It does take patience and consistent use to see results. The manufacture says visible effects can be seen within a couple of weeks of applying the cream to dry areas, while multiple shoppers said five-star results came within a month.

What reviewers say

"Stick with this," a five-star reviewer said. "I’m so impressed. Give this some time, because I really saw a difference by week two of nightly usage. I have soft baby feet, and I’m a farmer who likes to be barefoot too often. You will have beautiful feet. I find this works great on elbows, knees and dry spots on my body! Nice, nice tub and this absorbs fast, no greasy feel!"

"Wow ... amazing! I never write reviews and seldom buy beauty products, but this cream really works wonders and works fast," a customer wrote. "Just a little dab will do. I use it on my elbows, knees and heels. Makes skin look and feel young again. ... Worth every penny!"

Another shopper reported that it “softened the toughest callouses.” They added: “This was [what] the doctor recommended to me and a friend because of our dancing feet. It’s remarkable! It softens the cuticles and dry places on your feet."

"Controls eczema on my hands," another shared. "Better than the prescribed ointments! I have been to three dermatologists and have been prescribed three different ointments (one I had to get from a specialty pharmacy). None work. The next step was pills — they scared me because of all the side effects. This does not cure me of the eczema on my hands, but it keeps it very much under control. I limit it to twice a day."

A final cream user shared: "My only complaint is that it’s a little tiny bit sticky, but I can overlook that since the results are so good!"

Heal thy heals — and then some. This rich formula is packed nourishing ingredients, including urea, allantoin, avocado and vitamin E.
