I'm glad the story was about the AVON pads. I bought some this last order to try them since I get a discount. I was hesitant to wear them overnight so I put them on in the evening before bed after jammies. I even washed my feet before hand. I wanted to make sure it was toxins and not dirty feet gunk.
I took them off after 3 or 4 hours and they were lumpy. They did look like the pictures and yes, they smelled gross. I didn't feel any different, but it says you are supposed to use thm for 3 nights straight to make a difference. So I will give them to friends and let them try them and judge for themselves.
