Our feet are probably the most abused part of our body. From baby soft feet, we eventually develop hard skin or calluses, which can be caused by too much walking or uncomfortable footwear. A lot of women (and some men) treat themselves for a foot spa every now and then. Although it is surely relaxing, it is not so economical to go to the salon all the time just to have those hard skin removed. Plus, most of us do not have the luxury of time. I recently discovered this new tool to easily get rid of those unwanted calluses – the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File.
What is Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File?
An electronic foot file that gently buffs away hard skin in just moments leaving you with beautifully smooth feet.
How To Use Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File
Using Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File is pretty straight forward. It comes with detailed instructions as well.
When used for the first time, unscrew the base of the unit in a counter-clockwise direction.
You’ll see 4 AA batteries, which come with the package. Remove and dispose the red insulator tab from the brand new unit. Then, screw back the base.
Now, you’re ready to have beautiful, smooth feet in just 4 steps.
- First, clean feet and dry. Take note that you should use the device on dry feet.
- Next, turn on the unit by twisting the silver ring to the left.
- Gently glide the roller head over hard skin. Continue until feet feel smooth. Remember though not to use on the same area for more than 3-4 seconds at a time.
- Once you’ve obtained the level of smoothness you like, rinse and apply foot cream.
- Don’t forget to clean the roller head after use. Take note though that the device itself is not waterproof, so detach and wash the roller head to clean the surface.
Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File Experience
First of all, I really appreciate that Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File has a completely sealed packaging. Of course, we all want to make sure we are using a brand new tool on our feet. It was a bit of a challenge to open, but it’s better that way to make sure it was never tested in store.
Now, here’s the tool when held. The rubber-like soft-touch handle has a nice grip, without having to worry that it could slip through my hand. It’s ergonomically-shaped, making it comfortable and easy to use. It’s a bit heavier though than the manual foot file, but it’s definitely not bothersome.
When they say that you can get beautiful, smooth skin after 1 use, they’re serious about it. I have hard skin on my heels and toe mounds. Honestly, I expected it to be completely smooth after about three uses of this device since my dead skin has thicken over time. By the way, I’m not a big fan of foot spas or manual foot file because I’m very ticklish! Surprisingly, I didn’t feel anything while using Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File. It has a specially-designed Micralumina roller head, which for me is more gentle than manual foot filing. The device stops automatically when you press it too hard. However, being “gentle” doesn’t mean it is less effective in removing hard skin. In a matter of minutes, all the hard skin disappeared and my feet is back to beautiful skin. Just take a look at some of the dead skin on the unit.
Scholl Electronic Foot File is priced at PHP 1,685, which can look a little expensive at first glance. If you think about it though, the price is just your 2-3 spa sessions. A Micralumina roller head can be used more than three times, for sure. We should also be concerned with hygiene here. Foot spas use their foot files over and over again to different clients. I don’t think you would want to share a foot file with someone who has fungal infection. But it doesn’t mean you couldn’t share this device to family members or friends. Scholl Electronic Foot File’s roller head can easily be replaced. In fact, you can buy a refill with two heads for just PHP 550. Lastly, I don’t mind paying for the convenience it can give me forever! I can simply use this device anytime, even while watching television. No need to rush to the salon to have the dead skin removed, which also means less time and gas wasted.
I’m really happy that I can now walk without feeling any hard skin underneath my feet. Prior to testing this device, I could already feel the calluses on my toe mounds while walking. Blame that to all the high heels I’ve been wearing for the past weeks! Now, it’s time to bare my beautiful feet. Hehe!
