You need an Emjoi Micro Pedi. Let me qualify that statement: You need a Micro Pedi if you have callused feet, hard heels, or dry soles AND
- are scraping at your feet with pumice, files, or a certain egg-shaped grater
- hate piling on lotion and sleeping in socks and/or
- are using foot peel products.
So what is it like? Well, I noticed some of the readers of Ruth’s post commenting that it looked scary. I think those pedi egg graters and the razor blade thingy some salons use are much scarier (don’t do it)! The roller isn’t super coarse or rough. It doesn’t hurt at all and there’s no danger of cutting yourself. You use this tool on dry feet, so no soaking time needed. It travels smoothly over the skin and makes quick work of exfoliating. It does create lots of “powder” or “dust” or “dead skin cloud formations” as you go, so you may want to do it over the tub or some newspaper. I used it on my heels, soles, and the sides of my feet. I also carefully used it on top of a couple of toes where the skin on the knuckle was a bit thick. In minutes, my dry, rough, abused-by-flip-flops feet were baby soft. In terms of how the skin looks and feels, I can get better results than a professional pedicure with this. Note, that I didn’t say in terms of nails because I am not great at polishing my toes, so I will still rely on getting a pedi when I want dark polish. But, today, I exfoliated with the Micro Pedi; soaked my feet; pushed my cuticles back; and applied a light color polish. You wouldn’t know it wasn’t a profesh job. Seriously, your feet will look so good Quentin Tarantino will cast them in a movie. (You know, because he has a thing with feet. Look it up.)
