I have been itching to try the Ped Egg for quite a while. It was the fabulous review on Beauty Addict that finally propelled me to my local Walgreens. This is currently priced at $9.99
Assembly of the egg is a piece of cake. Everything snaps together with ease. The inside contains a cheese grater device that is sharp yet not dangerous. It boasts that it is mild enough to use on a balloon.
I was tentative with my first use. The directions state that you have to use it on clean, dry and moisture free skin in a lengthwise motion. It took less than one minute to feel comfortable enough to "go to town" on my heels. I snuck a peek at the inside of the egg and was disappointed to not see a pound of shredded skin. I had been hoodwinked by the HSN Ped Egg hour. The models used the egg for a solid minute and opened the egg to reveal a truly horrifying amount of skin.
Of course, this made me get more rigorous and violent with the egg.
The results were still lackluster.
I was starting to believe that only truly "jacked up" heels could get that disgusting HSN result.
If I was worth my salt as a blogger, I would neglect my pedicure routine for several weeks to see if I can achieve the true horror of the egg.
Last night while watching CNN, I whipped out the egg again.
I thought that it would fruitless.
To my surprise, there was a little too much skin in the egg for my liking.
It was not horrific but enough to not write the product off.
This morning I woke to aching heels that felt like a baby's bottom.
What are you thoughts on the Ped Egg? Is it hype or a miracle?
Disclosure: I purchased this product at my local drugstore.
