July saw Underscored readers shopping for products to keep themselves and others safe from Covid-19 while also making social distancing more comfortable. From foot peels to face shields and breathable face masks, here’s what Underscored readers couldn’t get enough of in July.
Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel ($25; amazon.com)
Just because you can’t get to the nail salon doesn’t mean your feet have to suffer from cracked heels and calluses. This infamously effective at-home peel isn’t for the faint of heart (check out the customer images at your own risk), but will leave your feet as soft and supple as, well, a baby’s. You can check out our review of it (with pictures) here.
