If your like me and live in sandals or flip flops all Summer, then you know how important it is to keep your feet looking nice and in good shape. But going to an expensive salon to have a pedi isn't always in everyones budget. So the answer to that dilemma is to just do your own at home pedicure. I have been doing my own for several years now after getting a pretty bad infection in one of my toes after a salon pedicure. So I love trying out new products and gadgets that will help me get the best out of my pedicure. I purchased the pedi egg last year and while it did work, it is nothing like the Emjoi Micro Pedi! This product simply does exactly what it says it does, and it does it well.
I've found that I like to use this after soaking my feet first in some warm water with either bubble bath or a foot soak. Then, I towel dry them off and then let them air dry for a bit. Once dried, I use the micro pedi to remove any calluses on my heels and also any dead or dry skin on my feet. You don't have to push hard or put any pressure on it while using, you just lightly run it across the area that you are targeting and it removes the unwanted skin easily without any real effort. The end of the micro pedi is actually a mineral roller that spins an impressive 30 times per second so it works super fast as well. My only complaint is that my feet are super ticklish so, I literally laugh out loud whenever I use it.
I tried using one of those metal blades on my feet but those things are terrifying to me. I mean you are actually running a razor blade right across your feet, so how safe can that be? Well let me tell you there is no need to use one of those awful things, because the micro pedi does just as nice of a job if not better! And it is completely safe and easy to use. My husband walked in one night as I was using it and asked me what it was. I explained and showed it to him and then ended up using it on his feet. In all 25 years that I have been with this man, he has NEVER let me touch his feet! He is super sensitive and ticklish like I am but this didn't bother him at all. He had some pretty rough callouses on the sides of his big toes from where his work boots rub them everyday. And the micro pedi gently rubbed them right off, so needless to say we were both very impressed!
I now use this as a regular part of my home pedicure routine and I honestly don't know how I ever lived without this little gem. If you like to do your own pedi's or know someone that does, then I would highly recommend this product. I was going to add before and after pictures of my feet in this post, but since my legs and feet both broke out recently from my vascular disease, they aren't exactly the prettiest feet in the world so I thought I would spare you from having to see that. But, if you just really want to see them, feel free to email me and I will be happy to show you the results I got with it.
You can find this product in most drugstores, and big chain stores like Walmart and Target and it is also available online by many retailers as well including Amazon.
Any of you guys gave this a try yet?
