Who bought all the chiropody sponges?!
10

Wilberforce1 · 22/07/2020 23:21

Newton's Chiropody Sponges, where have they all gone?! Can't find them anywhere and someone is selling 2 for £20 on eBay.

Did I miss something? Has anyone found anything similar? They were so good!

I thought they were all that until I ordered a £5 foot grater as it were from Amazon. My loyalties have changed.

Boots used to do a white rectangular callus remover that worked well.

I keep looking on amazon but nothing and I’ve just seen some on eBay for £50!!!! I’ve got something similar coming from amazon out of desperation but historically these are the only things that have ever worked. I’ve even looked for a website for Newton’s to try and buy direct but no luck

Me too!
Although, i too used a foot grater here and these foot sponges that the salon uses, here - and got awesome results!
My feet are like silk!

I then use my scholl pedi thingy day to day, and lots of foot cream under socks, because my feet are very dry.
Baby soft feet. Smile

Actually, my feet are so soft and smooth I'm not paying to have a full pedicure for summer.
I'm just going to have a nail polish change, because my nail polishing skills are shocking. Going to save my money. Smile

I'm so gutted about the Newton's one but I'm going to give that foot file a try that @Beautifullymixed recommended. Do you have another link for the foot sponge? That one isn't working, sorry!!

They sell them in our local semi chem. I bought one thinking it would be nice and gentle, used it once and about died at the sensation Grin

Wilberforce sorry about the link.
The sponges are here.
You will never run out. Smile
Soap your feet and give them a good scrub.
Then chuck on loads of cream and pop some socks on.

When using the grater, make sure you use a light hand. I use it dry, and if in doubt stop.
I continued the next day, and nearly cut myself.
But - the results were fantastic!
No hard, dry skin left at all, it was all on the floor...
Then you smooth down the rough edges with your chiropody sponge and stroke your feet in delight. Grin
