Product Review: Emjoi Micro Pedi:: Warning-Contains gross feet pics!!

Over the summer I was sent a product to review, and I never got to it until a few weeks ago. I was sent the Emjoi Micro Pedi. Now I've heard of Emjoi a little bit, but mainly with epilators. I was never a big epilator fan and feet kind of gross me out, so that probably explains why I didn't review this product sooner.

About a month ago the boyfriend and I were hanging out and I just couldn't stand his feet anymore! I kept offering to take him for a pedicure, and he never took me up on it. So I decided to roll up my sleeves, and attack those puppies myself. What ensued afterwards, was a massive amount of laughs, gags and some pretty impressive results.

WARNING: GROSS FOOT PIC!!!

Before Pic:


Do you see why I didn't want those things rubbing up on my legs? LoL..I didn't expect to do anything to the calused areas, because they were pretty bad, but that dryness had to go!


After pic:


This is with lotion as well, but this baby was pretty damn smooth compared to what it was before!

Product information:


It's a pretty lightweight product and it came with batteries which is always great. It came with two files, the blue for more sensitive feet or feet that aren't as dry and the red, which is for super dry or cracked skin. The files can be used several times, but are only recommended to be used one per person.

I used the red file on John and it took a couple of minutes to do each foot. He didn't complain that it tickled, which I was surprised about it because it seemed it would. It takes off a lot of dead skin, very quickly. The only problem was, the skin (or foot dust as John and I called it) has nowhere to go, so it just goes wherever. I had to put a magazine under John's foot to catch all of the gross fall out.

The product is $40 and the replacement files cost $20. The product is available for purchase at Emjoi.com or by clicking here. This may seem a little steep, but if you do a lot of at home pedicures, this would be a really great tool to have.

Product Pros:

♥ Super convenient
♥ Really easy to use and you get quick results
♥ Great for at home pedis
♥ Can be used on men and women
♥ Great for people with dry skin

Product Cons:

♥ A little pricey
♥ Doesn't have anything to catch the skin
♥ Only available online

Thank you to John and his feet for assisting me with this review!

As a woman who lives as much of her life as possible barefoot, I wage a constant battle with rough, dry skin. As for calluses- I am an over-achiever. I have often joked with my daughter that I need to use a belt sander on them. Not anymore. The Micro-Pedi sends all other tools (pumice, ped eggs etc, and yes, belt sanders) into the trash.

Excellent product, so simple to use! I agree 100% that all other tools pumice etc. are obsolete now. Not only is it quick and effective at ridding hard dry skin on my feet, but it is very quick to do so.
Highly recommended!
