Dermal Therapy Blistop

Party season is kicking into high gear, and you may be resigned to subjecting your feet to all manner of abuse. Fret not: Besides sticking your stilettos on a shoe tree in hopes of enlarging them to accommodate your toes, try Dermal Therapy’s Blistop on for size.

This drugstore brand spray envelops your feet in an elastic, invisible veil. This film is said to offer protection for cramped toes and prevent painful blisters from forming.

If you’re more concerned about ruining your Jimmy Choos, Dermal Therapy says the spray won’t stain on most materials, including leather. We’d advise caution: Spritz it on your ankles and toes well before wearing your shoes, so that the spray is completely dry before you slip your tootsies into your favourite pair of party shoes.

Dermal Therapy Blistop, $11.90 for 50 applications, is available at Guardian, SaSa and Watsons pharmacies. For more information, visit and follow the brand on Facebook.
