You guys know so much gross stuff about me already, I figure why not throw another one onto the fire? I get SERIOUS calluses during the summer months. Big, hard, yellow suckers that no bath soak will soften and no amount of nightly lotion-application will cure. A couple of years ago, I walked away from a pedicure with one of these foot files, and used it until it absolutely fell apart. It was only mildly effective anyway, so when I heard about the gadget pictured above, I was more than a little intrigued.
As you can probably imagine, you turn it on, run it over your foot calluses, your heels, anywhere that’s got a buildup of hardened skin, and it grinds that stuff down quite nicely. This is a fast-moving rotor head, so be very careful not to apply it to un-callused skin or you’re gonna be in a world of hurt. But I never feel a thing when using it on the hard stuff.
You definitely need to pair your Amopé Pedi Foot File with a routine of f00t care that includes moisturizers; It won’t give you smooth, soft feet all on its own. But man, it sure helps.
Anyone else tried this gadget? Thoughts? Other options to share for summertime callus care?
