bonus beauty tool review:
TECH & PRO WET/DRY BATTERY POWERED CALLOUS REMOVER $23.95:
I really liked this product and it will now be my go-to tool when it's time for my regular at-home pedi! I was very impressed at how well the remover was packaged and also included two attachments for different levels of "buffing", as well as a small brush for cleaning. The drawback that I did find with the unit is that it does NOT come with batteries, which are needed in order to operate the tool! It could have come with batteries OR another option would have been to make the device rechargeable via usb or wall adapter. However, as I don't use this every day and only when I need to, the rechargeable batteries that I placed in the remover should last quite a while.
As for use, it was very easy to use and I did read the instructions before use as I'd not used a mechanical callous remover before and wanted to make sure that I did not harm my skin! After placing the batteries inside the tool, I was able to easily figure out how to get back on the handle and turn it on. I made light strokes as I went around my heal areas and other rough areas of skin on my feet. I also had one rough spot on my hand that I used the remover on too. It did not take but about 2-4 seconds per area to easily slough off the dead and rough skin and callouses!
The total time to do all areas was only about 5 minutes tops, which was just an awesome improvement to the usual 30 minutes that it used to take to the same job!You do want to make sure that you do not leave the device on and in one area too or you will start to feel a heat that becomes very uncomfortable and quite quickly! If you do leave the device on too long in one area you may damage you skin and cause irritation so I would advise to be careful and avoid doing this. It is not too heavy and fairly ergonomic which means it's easy to hold and operate!
This remover can be used either by wet or dry method and I would recommend using the wet method as it does provide some slight lubrication between your skin and the remover- you will be less likely to "burn" the skin :) All-in-all, this was a good product that will really make your pedis and softening/exfoliating rough spots on your skin a quick and easy process! It's very affordable as well at under $24 which means you still have $$$ to spend on other awesome pedicure products :)
