I bought the Micro-Pedi by Emjoi last summer after reading great things about it in magazines. It is an at-home solution for rough, dry skin on the bottom of your feet. If you want a quick and easy problem solver to a dry skin situation, you will achieve very similar results to a salon pedicure with this product.
The Micro-Pedi is a handheld battery operated device powered by two AA batteries. It comes with two interchangeable heads - the pink is for coarse grit and the blue is for extra coarse. I don't know why anyone would use the pink one, once you see the results from the blue head, the pink one will never live up to it for you.
The sandpaper-like heads rotates against wherever the hard skin is on your feel and buffs away dry, dead skin cells. After a couple of minutes your left with a layer of smooth skin! This is different than the other pedicure solutions like pedi-egg, they can be really damaging for your skin and can sometimes cause more cracks that there was before but this is pressure sensitive so will cut out of you press too hard, to prevent over-zealous removal of healthy skin. Its more about repetition to get rid of the really coarse skin.
You would probably get 3 - 4 uses out of this before you would have to replace the head. You can buy replacement heads that come in packs of two, either 2 pink heads or 2 blue heads whichever you prefer.
I bought this in Boots for €49.99 and you can get the replacement heads online for €12.99. I have yet to see anywhere stocking the replacement heads in store which I find odd considering most pharmacies sell the device itself.
This is a definitely one of my summer essentials, I use it so much, it just takes two minutes and give fantastic results! What do you use to get your feet nice and smooth? Would love to hear what other people find works best and if you have found nothing to be that great and haven't tried this it's most definitely worth a look!
