Scholl Instant Hard Skin Remover

As you’ve probably guessed from my round up of all the pedicure treatments I’ve tried, I am also a sucker for any new foot product that comes on the market promising smooth, beautiful feet.

I’ve tried the Ped Egg (works okay, but it sheds dry skin everywhere), every type of exfoliating scrub, foot files, Moroccan scrubbing stones, pumices, those little battery operated files (didn’t make a dent), everything, and this is the first time I have found a product that really works exactly as promised.

I am officially impressed.

It basically works like a razor blade, but safely, although you do have to be careful if you use it on any areas that it’s not really supposed to work on - around your toes and ankles.  But to get rid of hard skin build up on your heels and that hard to reach place between your big toe and the rest, it is absolutely unsurpassed!

I tried it dry to begin with (it doesn’t come with much in the way of instruction), and it was okay but hardly impressive.  Then I soaked my feet and used it wet.  Oh my gosh!  You can actually see the skin coming off in ribbons as it scrapes it away.  Yes it is quite gross, but better to get that stuff off of your feet surely? 

If the holes get blocked up I just tap it on the side of the bath. 

When I offered it to one of my regular testers to try she was dismissive - she prefers to get her chiropodist to scrape all the hard skin off her feet, but then she gave it a go.

Her verdict:

“I absolutely love you for introducing me to this. 

If I had to take one thing to heaven this would be it.

My feet feel softer than they even have after the chiropodist!”

As I am a complete sucker for all new products I also tried out the Scholl Hard Skin Softening Cream and Pen - but I can’t say that these had any more effect on my feet than an all purpose cream - such as E45.  If you are going to buy a special foot cream, my favourite is the Flexitol medicated cracked heel cream (I used to be a big fan of The Sanctuary Kyphi Salve from Boots - but they seem to have discontinued this - if you see some, grab it!)
