Ped Egg REVIEW
Save yourself some money. Do your own pedicure at home and use the extra money for something else.
The way we were created, our bodies build up calluses to counter irritation to our feet. Once you start shaving, or even rubbing with pumice stone, you will have to continue to do so (probably forever). It is a cyclical process.
It is recommended to use this product on DRY feet.
It is suggested to buff/sand the feet after scraping.
It is encouraged to follow buffing/sanding with an emollient cream.
I was over zealous when I first used this product because I was impressed with the amount of "debris" I collected. I was "tenderfooting" it for a week because I was too aggressive with my scraping. Take your time! I use this product once a month.
I follow up with my HeelTastic & some fluffy white socks overnight.
My feet haven't felt this soft in a really long time.
I love this product. If you have dry flaky skin or calluses, this may be the answer to your prayers. I saw it demonstrated on HSN a long time ago. I was both intrigued & mortified @ the amount of dead skin I saw the model dump into the waste basket.
I would show you my tootsies, but I am deathly fearful of "foot freaks", so I will leave this lovely picture to your imagination.
I paid $9.99 for my Ped Egg from CVS.
Recently, I have seen this product in the dollar store. Available in White, Pink, and Black. Can you believe that?
self contained (for collection of dead skin)
convenient (no waiting for pedicure appointment)
handy sander on bottom of unit
easy to clean and disinfect
be careful not to remove too much skin during first use
I give this 5 out of 5 stars.
If you are diabetic, you are not supposed to use this product.
