So, I don't know about you, but I like to avoid physical labor wherever I can - and that now includes my pedicures! The Micro-Pedi, which is like a super fast, rotating pumice stone, takes the effort out of buffing away dry, dead skin and calluses off the feet (or wherever). The roller completely rotates 30 times a second to gently break down hard skin to reveal super soft baby feet.
In my experience with pumice stones or other pedicure graters, sometimes even though they take off the dead skin, my feet feel exactly like what they've been through - grated! However, after using the Micro-Pedi, there is not one scraggly piece of dead skin left - just absolute smoothness.
The entire device fits comfortably in the palm and the interface is about as simple as it can be. There is only one button at the front, which turns it on or off and there is a side clip that releases the roller for replacement. The roller that comes with the Micro-Pedi is Extra Course but there are replacements of different levels such as Super Coarse and Xtreme Coarse for tougher skin. This model takes 2 AA batteries.
To use, you simply turn on the Micro-Pedi and place it lightly on the skin, moving slowly around the area you want to slough off. It is pressure-sensitive to protect you if you push it too hard on the skin and will stop automatically. One session normally takes me about 1 minute on each foot.
I purchased the Emjoi Micro-Pedi Nano on Amazon for $22.95.
Overall, I am really pleased with this nifty gadget! It has gotten my feet just as smooth or smoother than any professional pedicure I've gotten. This works exceptionally well on typical rough skin such as around the heels but I don't think its strong enough to completely remove deep calluses in one use (but those can probably be tackled with the more abrasive refills). The compact size also makes it very easy to travel with to make sure you have soft feet wherever you go!
Thanks for reading!
