Scholl Express Pedi Review
I am one of these people that holds onto my flip flops, or perhaps more accurately my Birkenstocks until as long as possible as the seasons change. Until I just know my little toes cannot take it much longer and I sadly turn to the world of boots and Uggs. As a consequence I do find I get to get hard skin on my feet which is also pretty stubborn to get rid of.
I usually get around this by paying for at least a couple of pedicures throughout the summer, plus I get pretty toes too which is one of my favourite things. I also have a hard skin file which I try to use regularly. Because of this reason, I have been tempted by the Express Pedi from Scholl’s Foot Care range for a while. Which means I was rather excited when it was sent to me for review.
The Express Pedi arrived and everything was in the packet, including batteries ready to go. Which is a nice change rather than have to rummage through drawers to power your new item. You use it on dry, not wet skin and quite simply turn it on and roller it over the hard skin on your feet. It doesn’t hurt at all and is surprisingly gentle. I kind of had visions of a mini powered sander, but honestly it is nothing like that at all and feels as gentle as an electric razor does on your leg.
I found it hard to resist the urge of wanting to press the Express Pedi hard in the hope that it would file the hard skin off better and faster. But that just makes the pedi stop, so the message really is gentle and you need to go over the stubborn areas a few times.
What did I think? I have only used it a couple of times, but I can see it become my best friend in the summer months. Certainly much easier than than a manual file. Do I think it will replace a decent pedicure at the beauty salon? No. But for day to day maintenance it i really handy and much neater than my previous solution.
