I was interested in this product, not for the removal of calluses but because I am a barefoot kind of gal. I hate shoes and go barefoot whenever possible. I live in a very dry climate and in the summer, it's nothing for the temperature to reach 120 degrees. Now imagine walking around on concrete with those temperatures and you can understand why my feet are constantly dry. I've tried multiple foot lotions, gels, a foot file and pumice stones and nothing works. That is, until I received the rechargeable callus remover.
This is quickly becoming my favorite summer time gadget. I've used it on my feet just one time and the difference is like night and day. It beats every other pedicure product I've tried to date. The time spins for the callus remover is 40 spins per second, which is why this actually works. It removes the skin in a faster amount of time and doesn't stop when the remover touches your skin like some others I've tried. It also has two speeds so if you find one is not working, you can try the other. I love love love that this is rechargable. It's less money that I have to spend on batteries. You just connect the charger, plug it into the wall, and then it's ready to go. I wasn't sure if it was charged at all, so I charged it overnight and it's still got a lot of charge left in it.
It also has a light on it so you can see what you're doing. I don't care if you're in the best light available, it always seems as though there is never enough light to see what you're doing. It's a really handy little gadget to have for summer time and those cute sandals you know you want to wear. It's also water resistant although I wouldn't suggest submerging in it. I soaked my feet first so that any dry skin I had on my feet was easier to remove. It works excellent on semi wet feet. I do suggest you use this over a towel because you will be amazed at how much dry skin is removed. When you're done, you can just rinse off the grinding roller head and it also comes with a cleaning brush. They've really thought of everything with this device.
The process I used was the following:
I first soaked my feet for about 5 minutes in hot water, as hot as I could stand it. I patted my feet dry when I took them out of the water. I started on the low setting because I wasn't sure what to expect. The low setting worked extremely well on the sensitive areas of my foot. When it came to right below my big toe and my heel, I used the high setting. In about 10 minutes, I was done with the one foot. I then soaked it one more time in cooler water and applied lotion. Then I did the same to the other foot. In the end, my feet were SUPER soft and healthy looking. I think when I get used to it, I can do each foot in five minutes. I just wasn't sure what to expect at first.
Bottom Line? I'm totally buying these for Christmas.To those who are on a budget, I highly recommend it. Think of the long run, you will get many many uses at home for the cost of one pedicure at a spa. Trust me when I say, people will want to know your secret.
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
