Ped Eggs have been around for a while, and they have become a product that we love. At first, we resisted the commercials that seemed to be everywhere. We were finally converted when the manicurists at the salon were singing their praises. It's a great way to remove rough, dry skin from heels and other problem areas. If you haven't purchased a Ped Egg yet (or if you have worn out the one you already have,) Easter season might be time to buy this special type of egg. They come with a handle now, which is convenient for those that find it awkward to bend over to use the hand-held style. Ped Eggs are ergonomic, and are easy to use on dry feet before showering. We use a foot file to smooth after each Ped Egg use, and have even been known to use the Ped Egg before a pedicure appointment.
If you are still using a blade (which we were guilty of doing,) the Ped Egg is better. It makes the dry patches more manageable without the risk of cuts. Glambo suggests that you NEVER allow a manicurist to use a blade, since they are against State Board Regulations in most states.

Handled blades which are often unsanitary, can cause injury, and are often illegal for professional manicurists to use on clients.
Do you have a Ped Egg? Ours gets a Glambo Kiss of Approval.
