I tried one recently after a recommendation on here and they are so brilliant. My current one is about to die so I ordered a 3 pack from Amazon but seller has let me down.

Boots don't seem to stock them - where do people usually find them? Thanks

Amazon have them

Amazon, and really cheap!

Yep Amazon

memyselfandaye Sun 07-Aug-16 21:33:37

I got them on Amazon from Greens Pharmacy, they cost £2.10 for three

I got mine from eBay, free delivery

My local pharmacy has them.
Ask, you might be surprised.
Other than that, amazon. I always have one on the go, summer or winter.

Amazon. Think I bought 36 a couple of years ago!

Ps I'd be happy to post you one if you're desperate.
It might even be a new one if youre lucky ;)

Saw them in savers. And bought 10

It was Greens pharmacy via Amazon that let me down. They were due to be delivered a month ago, still no sign. I emailed them last week, no reply

Stupidly I hadn't thought of eBay, will have a look there

IOp, I ordered Newtons sponges after seeing them recommend in here, I've got hooves from a summer of flip flops. They've arrived this morning, Greens Pharmacy via Amazon. If you've had no response from Greens then contact Amazon customer service, I had something not arrive and the seller was unhelpful, Amazon credited me the following day.ill be trying to sort my horrid hard skin out later grin

Lottapianos Mon 08-Aug-16 10:49:47

Thanks Tess. The sponges are seriously brilliant. Will contact Amazon later today, not v impressed. Ordered a new one from ebay yesterday, should be with me tomorrow. Have fun de-hoofing grin

I'll be down at Savers this lunchtime!

Tessticklesyourfancy Mon 08-Aug-16 11:31:24

Looking forward to de hoofing
What a sad sac I am grin

Lottapianos Mon 08-Aug-16 12:17:32

Its not the most pleasant job, but very satisfying!

I've got one of these but not used it yet. scared it will break or disintegrate when I take it out of the box.

Lottapianos Mon 08-Aug-16 13:11:54

You get a bit of black dust falling off but it won't break. I've used mine about 10 times and its pretty thin now but is still intact

Tessticklesyourfancy Mon 08-Aug-16 19:26:55

Qqqq I've been scrubbing away and now I've got things that resemble feet grin
These sponges are amazing, my feet haven't been this smooth in age. I'm going to have another go tomorrow. I could feel myself getting carried away and I didn't want to end up down to the bone but the hooves have gone grin

StealthPolarBear Mon 08-Aug-16 20:04:00

They are brilliant aren't they! Also work on bobby upper arms, I use to use a pumice bt my arms used to bleed

Lottapianos Mon 08-Aug-16 21:25:38

I use my sponge every other day on my heels in the summer. And plenty of heel cream in between

Tessticklesyourfancy Mon 08-Aug-16 22:36:27

I slathered on Palmers foot magic afterward, a bit too much as I've not been able to walk straight since
Tomorrow a bit more scrubbing and a bit less foot cream. I should have perfect heels come Friday smile

I've just ordered some... Hope they are the answer to my painful hard skin!!

Mov1ngOn Mon 08-Aug-16 23:19:16

I have some but gor black bits everywhere. Can someone give me an idiots guide on how to use....

After a shower/when you wake up wet/dry etc.

I'm currently supposed to be cream and cling filming my horrible feet.

Lottapianos Tue 09-Aug-16 06:28:32

There's instructions on the box. Wet feet (soak for a few mins ideally), wet sponge, soap or shower gel on sponge, scrub gently on dry bits.

Flexitol heel balm is also the way forward
