Soap & Glory foot file… has it been discontinued?

Or sold out for over a year?
As that's about when I last saw one in Boots, and bought it (it was the last one!)
I've been to Boots all over the country and not seen one since, not in S&G nor the foot section
Please don't tell me they've stopped doing them!
I'm using about five really old worn out ones right now!
Nothing else will do! Should i invest in one of those battery operated ones? (can't remember the name, maybe Scholl? )

5? What are you doing with them? I've had one for two years and it's as good as new.

They have it on their website.

Sainsburys sell one exactly the same it is in their faux soap and glory range. Blue and pink with 'retro' style packaging.

haha WhoKnows. I seem to wear them down really quick despite not having overly dry hooves! I just find they work soooo much better when fairly new
is Sainsburys exactly the same in quality? (crosses fingers, and scaly toes!)

You're probably just more dilgent than me, I'm always forgetting to do it. Hope you find one smile.

I bought one a few months ago, but don't think it's any better than my scholl foot file. Also, another one to try is a chiropody sponge (followed by flexitol). I haven't found anything better for smooth feet,

I bought one in Boots about a month ago, so should be still available

I bought one in Boots recently. However, it took my fucking ages to find.
It was:

Not in the S&G section
Not in the footcare section
Not in the bath accessories section

I actually can't remember where it was but it was the last one and I felt rather smug when I found it.

I couldn't find one in two different boots, some ordered it online and just got it delivered into the store next door to my work- job done!

If I could only remember to actually use it now!

I bought one quite recently, I had been looking for it for ages and it was in a random place in Boots. Also, I noticed they had one in the Sanctuary range which was exactly the same as the S&G one.

Me and my Mum bought one each at Easter, from differential branches.
Both times they were in the aisle with the bath accessories, nail brushes, back scrubbers etc. Not with the other Soap and Glory or with the shower gel/bubble bath etc.

weird that they are NEVER in the foot section with other foot files!

They are usually placed with the toiletry bags

Get a Micro Pedi..... so much better.

I love mine, and also use a micro pedi for optimum effect! It's showing on the boots website as available. You can do a click and collect thing with them so that even if your local Boots is out of stock they get it in for you.

hollyisalovelyname Fri 27-Jun-14 19:46:21

Scholl seem to be doing a copy of the Micro Pedi

LokiTheCynicalCat Fri 27-Jun-14 20:11:13

I bought one two weeks ago. It wasn't with the foot care things, it was in the bath accessories section and the soap and glory sub-section within that.

You can also order it online, it's not called a foot file but a foot "buffer" though, it took me a while to work out that!

alltoomuchrightnow Sun 29-Jun-14 22:56:22

i forgot to order. but i bought the last two in a Boots yesterday . they certainly weren't in with the other foot files.. they were with back scrubbers and wash bags

I saw two in my local Boots yesterday, in with the wash bags etc too. Maybe you got there after me!

Is a micro pedi that thing that's like a sander for your feet?

alltoomuchrightnow Mon 30-Jun-14 01:00:13

it was Milton Keynes, WhoKnows !

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 30-Jun-14 07:24:01

They're with the toiletry bags, sponges etc in boots.

Treacle the micro pedi is great, a bit like a sander but it doesn't hurt at all.
Far less effort than the S&G footfile ( which I also have) and the M& S footfile ( which I think is better than the Soap & Glory one).
