Most of us flip flop lovers have feet that are so dry, rough and callused that we are tempted to take a sander to them.  We buy a new callus remover (such as a foot scraper, grater, file, rasp, pumice stone etc) in hopes that we can discover the soft feet we had so long ago.  But, we usually end up disappointed, our feet still rough and our wallet a little lighter.

I figure we could all use a little guidance when picking out our next callus remover to save us from such aggravation.  So, I combed through reviews until I found callus removers worth sharing with you. I hope you can find a callus remover, or combinations of removers, that has your feet feeling smooth and looking pretty.

microplane callus removerMicroplane Colossal Pedicure Rasp

Reviewers looooove this callus remover!  In fact, the only negative thing I read was that it may work TOO well, so don’t use it roughly.  Many people compare it to the “Ped Egg”, but they say it is faster and more effective.  (Though it does lack a compartment for all those nasty foot shavings.)  It’s also inexpensive and durable and works well with wet or dry feet.  This rasp gets the job done, making it the top reviewed callus remover on Amazon.

Price: &7.50

 

 

 

Features of Microplane Colossal Pedicure Rasp:

  • Surgical grade stainless steel filing surface
  • Soft grip handle
  • Large filing area (Colossal)
  • Works with wet or dry feet (though it is best when your feet are dry)
  • Ok for diabetics

pedi rock callus remover Profoot Pedi-Rock Flexible Callus Foot File

Though the word “rock” is in the description, this is actually a foam sponge covered in emery material. (Hence the term “flexible” in the title)  This allows the pedi-rock to conform to your foot shape for easy and precise use.  It is also less abrasive than a scraper or pumice stone, great for someone with sensitive skin.  Reviewers said the pedi-rock is easy to grip and works great to smooth out calluses and rough skin.  They also found it to be durable and easy to clean with soap and water.

Price: $7.99

**You may also want to check out this Tatania Pumice Sponge Blocks.  They are similar to the pedi-rock, but are more rigid and abrasive.  They get great reviews for removing layers of dead skin on feet and hands.

Features of Profoot Pedi-Rock Flexible Callus Foot File

  • Sponge covered in a silicon carbide crystal surface (emery board-like material)
  • Flexible construction for easy grip and precision
  • Works with wet or dry feet (may be best wet because the crystal surface flakes off as you use it)
  • Money back guarantee
  • Not as abrasive as scrapers, graters or pumice stones
