...and they way it shaves your foot <shudders>

Even more so the fact you have to empty all the dead shaven skin out <shudders again>

Oh no it's AMAAAZING.

Totally my new hobby.

I am obsessive about my feet and have almost every implement and foot/heel cream going but even I shudder at a ped egg.

Keep seeing them in Boots and almost reaching out to pick one up. Something keeps stopping though - it's like an Ikea grater...

It's fab! Really works! But, don't spend the £9.99 in Boots. I got mine for £2.35 (inc shipping) on ebay. There's loads of brand new ones on there.

I laughed at Amazon listing for it. Under the frequently brought together item with it was the One Touch Automatic Can Opener from DKS !!!

I actually shave the bottom of my feet with a bic razor, it really works although I do have horse hooves for feet !

Just got one for £1.99!! 99p for Ped Egg - £1 postage

Was a bit worried it might not be legit but they seem to have lots of positive feedback for the same item!

Will see when it gets here hmm

I received mine from and ebay seller yesterday. It is fabulous!

My feet were terrible and now they are all new and shiny!

Plus, you can put the shavings on Pizza (joke). They go everywhere, they don't really collect in the egg, so that's bit is a big fat LIE!

Ped-Egg is all very well, but it pales in comparison with the mighty Microplane Foot Orb. Think super-fine parmesan grater on a ped-egg bit that actually collects the detritus - you don't even feel it taking the dead hoof off until you're suddenly faced with baby-smooth feet. They should be handed out free with every pair of men's 'sandals'.

LOL, When DS3 was a matter of days old, I'd swaddled him in a pure white blanket, quite tightly. DS1 (then 6yo) piped up with "He looks like one of those things on the telly" "What things?" says I expecting a lovely cuddly cute thing. "A Ped Egg"


Always used his blue or yellow blankets for swaddling after that!

I have my feet literally shaved after a good soaking in green tea, with a pedicure and manicure including hand painted flowers... all for £3.50... well it is in China!!grin

posiedullardparker Tue 07-Jul-09 16:04:10

Shaved with a razor blade....

BCNS Tue 07-Jul-09 16:04:31

lol just use a cheese grater!

Marthasmama Tue 07-Jul-09 16:07:08

Oh God, the advert makes me feel sick. I have to avert my eyes when the 'shavings' are emptied into the bin. <boak>

Kimi Tue 07-Jul-09 16:17:40

I love mine, although I try not to look too much when I empty it grin

wolfnipplechips Tue 07-Jul-09 18:07:42

YANBU, the thought of them made me boak but i was convinced my a thread on MN and i LOVE it its not nearly as sick making as i thought it would be and i even get a sick sort of pleasure from the shavings. Try it.
