The Micro-Pedi limited edition manicure and pedicure set
I tried something similar from a competitor last year and was really dissapointed as it hardly took any hard skin off my tootsies, so I was hoping the Micro-Pedi lived up to it's promises.
In the Micro-Pedi limited edition you get a range of items for a complete pedicure or manicure. The only thing that you need is nail varnish for a complete look.
Now using the Micro-Pedi roller I didn't expect a miracle cure for my feet, but I thought I would give it a try. Firstly the instructions say to wash your feet and dry them thoroughly, after inserting an AA battery, I then remove the protective protector on the device and switched it on.
The Micro-Pedi roller is a buffing device - it feels coarse like sandpaper. As it rolls you run it over the hard skin gently rotating as you go. I used this continuous, rolling it and rotating it over my heels for approximately a minute, taking care not to use it in the same place too long. Superficially it worked on my feet and took off a fine layer of skin. I could see this wasn't an instant cure but that a gentle course of treatment was needed. At this point I thought that I would tackle the hard skin over a course of a few days, and would see what they would be like after a 3 day course of treatment.
After I finished using the Micro-Pedi I then smoothed the Ultra Finishing Foot Cream into my heels. This specially formulated product with coconut extract felt very nourishing on my feet and had a pleasant fragrance with top notes of coconut and an underlying floral tone.
So what did my feet feel like after my first go you may ask? Well they were definitely smoother and softer but I can still feel hard skin on my heels.
The next day I used the Micro-Pedi again. I took the device and rolled it over the hard skin on my heels for the same length of time as before. The skin comes off in a fine dust, so I recommend doing it on a towel or over a hard surface that you can clean easily. Again I applied the nourishing foot cream after treatment. I really rate the cream, as it glides on the skin and feels like it is penetrating into my heels. It feels like it is actively make them softer.
The last time I used the Micro-Pedi was the next day. After repeating the steps again as above, and smoothing in the foot cream I checked my feet for the final result. Before I give you my final verdict I felt it was important to show you the rest of the set too.
The manicure and pedicure attachments
I'm no expert in the manicure and pedicure department but the instructions were simple and easy to understand. I buffed my nails with the tools that attach to a different roller. I particularly liked the cuticle tool to push back the cuticles.
Using the cuticle attachment
Before and after
In my opinion it is just as important to use the Ultra Finishing Foot Cream after treatment as this softened and nourished skin. In the future I will use the Micro-Pedi to keep my heels soft and prevent hard skin developing. The manicure and pedicure attachments are a nice addition to the range, however I did have a fault with the nail clippers which broke. Overall that let the set down which was disappointing.
My rating 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.
