|Ped Egg. Needs scissors to open the packet.|
Of course sunshine means that things once hidden are now on show- I'm talking feet! After a winter of tights, socks, boots, shoes and bed socks, mine are looking a bit...dull. I fear turning into 'that' person (sandals, crusty dry skin on feet with overgrown toeneails...*shudder*). I wanted to get them ready for summer so a couple of weeks back I went (on recommendation) to purchase a Ped Egg from Boots... they were £9.99. I puffed out my cheeks and walked out. £9.99 for a 'cheese grater for your feet'!! I had seen these gadgets a few years back before they were well known but they weren't £10! I set off searching and managed to pick one up from good ol' Ebay (link!) for £4. Sorted.

The Ped Egg is essentially a gentle foot file in a hand friendly design. It comes with an emery board to stick on the outside shell, and inside is the metal file. I stress that it is gentle. It wont slice through your skin. The downside is that the gentle nature means you have to use it regularly. I have been using mine daily on my dry feet before bed. I then slather some lovely foot cream on and let it soak in over night. I use my feet a lot- every day- so the least I can do is give them a little tlc by removing the dead skin and helping them to function properly. My feet arent summer ready yet, but then I wasn't expecting summer to arrive before April...

I have found one design flaw, if you close the egg it will loosen the file plate meaning that if you don't empty the dead skin immediately after use, then next time you open it you will end up with the dead skin flying everywhere.... yuck!! I hasten to add I was only putting the lid on the transport to the bathroom to rinse it out!
All in all a neat gadget that is making the post-winter pedicure ritual a bit better. I wouldn't pay £10 for it though!!
Do you have a ped egg? Do you like them? How do you exfoliate your feet?
