What it is: Emjoi Micro-Pedi Callus Remover
What they say: For those who enjoy a home pedicure or like to maintain a professional pedicure, the Emjoi Micro-Pedi home pedicure device is a worthy investment with a fabulous payoff -- beautiful feel that look great in sandals and barefoot and feel great when walking and active.
How to use: Hold the Micro-Pedi to your dry, rough, callused skin on your feet. Let the micro-mineral roller help to smooth away dead skin.
What I think: Oh, Summer... As much as I love this season, every year come mid-Spring there's the panic: I have to start shaving my legs again? My skin is so dry! My feet are not sandal ready! Bikinis? Psss... yeah!
I hate wearing socks, so sandal season is a big deal to me. But let's be honest, your feet need a little TLC before you can break out the flip-flops, open-toe wedges, strapping sandals and more.
I've been trying out some foot peels recently (a review will come shortly), but I'm not sure they're giving me long-lasting results so I need to pumice and moisturize regularly.
While not necessarily a hard job, it's inconvenient at times, which is why I was excited when I got the opportunity to try out the Emjoi Micro-Pedi.
The Micro-Pedi requires two AA batteries and features a unique micro mineral roller naturally processed from stone. The roller spins 30 times per second to "painlessly break up, buff, and effortlessly remove dry, rough, hardened, callused skin" from your soles.
My interest was piqued! I easily snapped in the batteries, removed the protective cover, flipped the switch, and got started on my feet.
I was a little nervous about how aggressive the Micro-Pedi may be, but it's extremely gentle (even a bit ticklish at times) and had a built-in auto-off sensor if you press too hardly.
My feet aren't that bad or at least I didn't think so until I started using this product. I was amazed at the amount of "dust" (which is what the removed skin looks like when you use it) that came off my feet.
My feet immediately felt smoother, but it took a few uses over a couple days to get perfectly smoothed, sandal-ready feet. Once you get there though, I imagine you could use the Micro-Pedi once or twice a week to maintain your results easily.
The only downside with the Micro-Pedi is that pivot, curve or rotate at all, which made it's difficult to get to some areas of your feet, especially the ball of your foot (thank you, heels!). It worked extremely well around the heels though.
Overall, I was impressed. I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous at first that I'd be losing several layers of my feet, but that wasn't the case. The Micro-Pedi is an easy, effective, and gentle way to get sandal-ready feet. I'll definitely being using this all Summer long!
