A few days ago someone bought me a Micro-Pedi by Emjoi as I have been having trouble finding something that would remove a section of very hard skin on the balls of my feet. She said that it had received very good reviews, so I thought it was worth giving a try.
The Micro Pedi uses abrasive rollers to remove hard and callused skin, and for £26.45, it comes with two rollers. The pink roller is for coarse skin, and the blue roller for extra coarse skin. Although the product looked promising, I was rather put out by the fact that these rollers only have a very short lifespan; on the instructions, it said they are good for a few uses and then need to be replaced. You can buy replacement rollers, but at £13.21 for two, they are very expensive, especially if you need to use them a lot. For this reason, I would be reluctant to use the Micro Pedi on a regular basis, and only when my calluses become particularly problematic.
I was at this stage now, so took out the pedi for its first use. I found it incredibly easy to use: just guide the roller gently back and forth over the affected area. On the instructions it says not to use on one section of skin for more than two or three seconds at a time, but I found doing this achieved no results whatsoever. I therefore ignored this warning, and continued to guide the roller over my hard skin. Within a short time, most of it had been completely taken away. Only that stubborn callus remained. I continued to use the Micro Pedi, and it was not long until even that had gone.
The Micro Pedi is far more effective than a razor, and it is much better than any previous electrical product I have used. This excellent product is quick, safe, and easy to use, but it is also pricey. If someone had not bought it for me, I would not have spent the money myself.
