Heels in a bad state & need to get something, some kind of file/ scrub/ cheese grater to get them in order. Heading out at lunch to get something but what? Have heard about footner but not sure I can bear the peeley stage as I'm wearing saddles at the moment every day. Help!

Soap and Glory footfile (or the virtual identical Sainsburys knock-off in their Dirty Works range) and some Flexitol heel balm stuff.

I don't rate the Soap and Glory foot file at all.

The Emjoi Micro Pedi is the business especially when used with the extra harsh rollers. Ah-mazing.

The PedEgg and a good foot cream.

CCS cream and a pumice stone is all you need

Use a peg egg every evening and slip a pair of socks on after moisturising. Lovely soft feet.

Forget the high street. Get on amazon for a scholl velvet electric pedi and a Newtons chiropody sponge.
Best things you will buy believe me. My feet are smooth as silk smile

Oh and flexitol/vaseline/pure shea butter or coconut oil for afterwards. Lovely.

Why do you need both the pedi thing and the newtons sponge Beautiful?

I'd start with flexitol. Slather your feet in the stuff and wear socks for a few hours (or overnight).

Then the next day, soak your feet in warm water, use a foot file and scrub, then repeat the flexitol.

Thanks all some great options. And now of course it's raining!

Soap and glory foot file, flexitol and body shop hemp foot protector. Job done!

cardoon the chiropody sponge is to use on a daily basis in the shower. You lather it up with soap. It maintains your smoothness, and cleans at the same time.
I like to use the pedi at night on dry feet , especially after a long day wearing sandals/flip flops. Then slather feet in cream and pop socks on.
In the morning, I shower and scrub with the sponge.
Voila smooth feet smile
