If theres one thing I hate about the human body, its feet! I'm not sure what it is, but I really do have the strangest feeling about feet, I don't like to look at other peoples feet, and I certainly dont like anyone touching mine! Is this just me?
What I do like about feet is to make sure they look and feel healthy. This involves keeping them clean, moisturised, keeping my nails in shape and painting them with a bright, fresh colour every now and again. Despite all this care and attention, I've noticed my heels have become cracked and very dry recently (maybe due to wearing poor quality shoes and sandals) and this is where today's product review comes into play...
I've seen the TV ads for Micro-Pedi endless times, but who really trusts the ads? So eventually I decided it was about time to try it for myself and see what all the fuss was about. When I saw that Micro Pedi had teamed up with Nails Inc to offer this fantastic bundle I had to get my hands on it! This bundle includes the award winning Micro-Pedi electric foot file, a cleaning brush and 2 limited edition Nails Inc nail varnishes.
The Micro Pedi is battery powered, and requires 2 x AA Batteries(which aren't included), but then you're good to go! It uses a gritted roller which spins 360 degrees up to 30 times a second. You hold this against the damaged skin areas on your feet and it effortlessly and painlessly buffs away the dead, hard and jagged skin to leave you with soft and smooth feet. It literally took me about 5 minutes to treat both feet, and you can see just how fantastic the results are in the image above(click the image to enlarge, if you don't mind looking at feet!). I still can't get over how smooth my heels are now! The thing I love most is that I can achieve these salon results in the comfort of my own home, without anyone going near my feet!
The Nails Inc polishes I received (I think the colours can vary in different bundles) were Brook Street - a gorgeous bright red-pink, and Porchester Place - a bright and fresh orange! I decided to try them both out, one on my hands and one on my feet, what a lovely contrast in colours! The polishes are both equal quality, they were easy to apply, dried relatively quickly, and to a glossy, streak-free finish.
The only negative point I might raise is that the roller on the Micro-Pedi will probably only last for a few uses depending on how bad your skin is and how often you use it as the grit wears down pretty quickly. However you can get different strengths/coarseness when you buy replacement Micro-Pedi rollers at a cost of £12.95 for a pack of 2 at Boots.
The overall value of this box comes to £59.99, however this is currently on introductory offer at Boots for just £39.99. So, you want beautifully soft and smooth feet again? You need the Micro-Pedi in your life! And now that you've read my review, and seen some genuine results and images, you can see that it really does work, you have my word!
