I sort of dread sandal season. I typically get monthly pedicures, but while my feet look great afterward they quickly devolve into something I’d rather hide with regular shoes. When Emjoi sent us their Micro-Pedi Nano Callus Remover ($24.95), I jumped at the chance to possibly end my boycott of open-ended footwear.
The Nano is a small foot buffer with a lot of power. Here are some of its selling points:
I find that the Nano safely and quickly turns calluses into dust. Thanks to the Nano, the cracks on my heels have completely disappeared. I love the small size, which is both portable and discreet. It runs on two AA batteries so there is no plugging in or charging. The roller has a very fine grain so even those with very sensitive feet should be able to use it. Once the roller wears down it’s no problem, refill rollers are available for purchase.
It is extremely easy to use. Just turn on the device and the roller spins quickly – specifically 30 times a second. You sort of sand-blast rough areas, and it only takes about a minute per foot to get soft and smooth skin. Definitely do this over a towel because the dead skin becomes a fine dust. It does a great job of making those calluses disappear without leaving feet raw or sensitive. A quick tip – make sure your feet are completely dry before using the Nano. It doesn’t have the same effect on damp skin.
With pedicures in my area running anywhere from $40 to $100, substitute the Nano and this baby pays for itself within a month.If you get regular pedicures, this is a great way to keep feet maintained in between visits.
The Emjoi Micro-Pedi Nano Callus Remover gets a big thumbs up from me. A few minutes twice a week is all it takes for me to put on sandals without a second thought. – Lisa
