OK so firstly I have to start this review by admitting that my feet tend to be one of the parts of my body that I do neglect when life gets busy. Having recently had a baby and with winter weather shoes covering up my feet, it is fair to say that they have been VERY neglected for quite a long time. I am pretty sure the last time I had a pedicure was at the end of 2015!
Firstly, I have to say that I was impressed with the design of the new foot pedi. I have used a previous version by Scholl and always found it to be a little bulky and awkward to hold, however this latest version is made from a lovely rubber like material which makes the product easy to grip on to making the whole experience a lot easier. The colour and shape of the foot pedi also make it a more appealing product then previous versions and I was pleased to see that the charging station was not in anyway big and bulky, making it easy to store away when not in use.
In my opinion, previous versions of this product were flawed by the fact that they were not rechargeable. I always found that as soon as the batteries became about half drained the foot file would not perform very well and therefore it would take a long time to get the desired smoothness. When I saw that this version was rechargeable I was incredibly pleased and so far I have found this to be a great feature. Not only will I save money on batteries, but the product appears to charge quite quickly and there seems to have been no drop in the performance. I am hoping this will continue to be the case and that the performance does not begin to lag with age.
Another feature that I was pleased to see is the addition of a variable speed button. Previous versions only had one speed, which meant you had to spend a lot more time on harder or rougher parts of the feet to achieve the desired smoothness. However with this additional button I was able to speed up the foot file on those more stubborn areas and managed to achieve smoothness in a matter of seconds.
Using the product itself is quick and simple; just a matter of rolling the file over the foot and watching it eliminate all the rough skin in sight. It took me around 12 minutes to achieve a pair of perfectly smooth feet, something that can easily be done whilst watching the TV in the evening.
This product is currently between £50 and £60 in stores and online, which although I must admit seems a little pricey, I personally think it is well worth the money. A pedicure with a file and paint would cost you around £20, so after around 5 uses you will start to be saving money which you could have been spending on pedicures…the only downside is you have to paint your nails yourself!
