So, I bought a Ped Egg.
I don't even really know why I bought a Ped Egg, because I already have a Microplane Foot File which I'm perfectly happy with but, well, I guess I'm even more of a sucker for advertising than I thought I was.
I bought my Ped Egg at the 'As Seen on TV' store (hee!) for $9.99, only to discover that you can buy them even cheaper than that from lots of different places, so it's a good idea to shop around.
Now, I don't want to say too much about this because some of you may be eating, but let's just say that I wear heels a lot, and my feet don't really love me for it. The Ped Egg, though, has made a world of difference: it really is as good as it claims to be, and it really does remove hard skin super-quickly, and without any discomfort whatsoever. It even collects the shavings for you inside the egg, and you may well get a strange sort of satisfaction out of that. I do.
Having now revealed much more about this than I really wanted to, I will just add that as far as I can tell, this is every bit as good as the much more expensive Microplane, with the only difference being the price.
As I said, you can pick these up in lots of places, but if you must order one right now, Amazon have them for just £3.89. I don't think you'll regret it.
