Nice!! I have got the most disgusting dead skin all over my heels and toes because I have a real penchant for going without shoes. I mean it is so gross that I pretty much refuse to get a pedicure because I don't want the gal to see my feet!! I've been using a pumice regularly but I never really got the results I wanted, and I really had to scrub at my feet (and they are verrry ticklish, not a good thing!) so it seemed a lot of work for not much result. I've tried creams and salves and weird socks but nothing really amazed me.
I bought this little device and voila! With the first use, my feet are smooth and they don't "catch" on my hose or my sheets at night. It didn't take long and my arm wasn't tired out after the scrubbing and buffing. I'm not saying it's a miracle product, but for me, it's worth the $10 and $10 for replacement blades. I got this at Bed Bath & Beyond so I didn't have to pay for shipping and all that garbage. I'd recommend anyone with rough feet to at least try it. One tip, if you can manage to hold the egg with the blade side facing up and rub it on your feet that way, it will catch all or most of the shavings. Also, I definitely recommend finishing with the emery pad.

Packaging could be better in terms of getting the product out. They perforated the back but its not quite large enough so you end up crinkling the paper and plastic holder when you try to pull it out from the back. This is my first foot file/callus remover so I can only compare it to the other ones I saw stocked at Sally's and it's about midrange. I'd consider it expensive ($9.99) but after using it, I'd say its totally worth it.
I have the worst dry heels as a result of flip flops year round. My heels have cracks and sometimes I peel at it and it just ends up feeling rough and looking ugly. After using the Ped Egg, my heels are smoother than I can remember! It was so easy to use but it doesn't really catch all the skin inside the reservoir. Most of it just kinda falls down so I suggest doing it in the tub or over a trash can. This thing is amazing but always check on your heels periodically or you'll end up filing too far and that won't be pretty.

Okay I decided to buy into all the hype of this product, so I searched all over town and found it at Sally's Beauty Supplies. And WOW, I'm so glad I bought it! I used it today and my feet are so soft now! I get really bad dry, cracked heels but this little egg took care of all that! As other reviewers have said, the key is to use the buffer to smooth it out and finish with lotion for good measure! Miracle product!

OK-this does work! i bought this this afternoon-Egg Ped Professional (i have no idea what the difference is between OG, Pro or Platinum?!). The KEY TO THIS EGG IS, after "grating" your feet (and yes, you will not get a smooth finish, there will be pieces sticking up-but that's what the emery board is for), you have to BUFFit down with the emery to achieve the smoothness. i did this in the shower (before i turned on the water of couse) and dumped the shavings down the drain. after my shower, oh boy! my soles were brand spankin' new! top it with some lotion and wow, i had nice feet again. my soles were pretty bad-so dry and cracked that it would SNAG on materials! will repurchase! got it for 9.99 at target. :)
UPDATE: it has been days later and my feet are still looking GOOD! LOVE THIS THING! ;) ill buy it forever! Going to get my mom one today.

To be quite blunt, I thought this was a rip off. My feet aren't totally disgusting, but we all need some slough-age. This just seemed to 1/2 slough off dead skin - I had all these little pieces of skin sticking up off my foot from where it just didn't get it all. I read the instructions and followed them to a T, but I still don't think it's that user friendly. To have to keep the egg in one direction while you're sloughing away is pretty awkward to me. I have much better luck with my 2-sided pedi-file that I can turn and angle any which way I need to.
And the contraption didn't seem to capture all the skin either. Both times I used it about 1/2 ended up on the floor, instead of inside the egg where it's supposed to be. And yes, I was using it in the right direction!
Basically, this product is nothing but hype and really disappointed. I've already thrown it away and will definitely not be repurchasing. It's just too much trouble.

After all the raves I'd heard about the Ped Egg I was really eager to try it. What a disappointment! It didn't do any more for me than any pumice stone or foot file I've ever used. My feet are quite dry and callused, but I thought this was exactly the type that the Ped Egg was made for! I went over my feet for quite a while with it and didn't see any extraordinary results whatsoever. Plus the "container" didn't hold the dead skin flakes at all. They were getting everywhere even though I was trying to be careful not to tip it at all. I personally found this completely overrated. For less than half the price I'll stick with a regular ol' foot file.

I went out and bought one of these because of the hype, and I really wanted to like it. But so far I have used it three times and I am not impressed. It is definitely taking dry skin off of my feet. I can see that by what is in the egg, which I actually find kind of cool. But my foot continues to be even more rough each time I use it. I say foot because I've been focusing on one so I can compare the two of them. It feels rough and uneven, like I've heard another reviewer or two say. It is certainly taking off dry skin, though, so perhaps I am using too much pressure. If I decide I like it I will edit my review, because I still really want to be impressed. I'm tired of dry feet!

I am rarely so inspired to write a review. My feet look like horse hooves. Dry cracked heels run in my family. I have to give myself a pedicure BEFORE I go get a pedicure if that makes sense.
I have used every file, stone, scrub, lotion.....even those nasty sulphur smelling scrubby stones. This little $10 miracle delivers. I wont repeat what everyone else has said, however I wanted to go on record as saying if this thing can make MY feet look this good, its a safe bet it will work on 98% of everyone elses. Well worth the $10 investment, and I am stopping to buy 3 more tonight after work.....one for my mom, my sister and my neice :)
edited to add: I agree that the 'collector full of parmesan cheese looking foot powder" is gross. but in a "cool, that used to be on my feet" kinda way

What a FANTASTIC find! This baby is 100 times better than my Diamencel foot buffer and it's like 1/4 price. Easy to use, extremely effective... Really can't ask for more. Linens N Things has them on sale with an in store coupon. Grab one... Heck - grab two! It's worth having one in your gym bag too!

When I first heard about this, I didn't think it would live up to the hype! It's definitely the best file I've used on my feet. It can be a little messy, because the shavings fall back out of the holes in the file, but that's the only con I've found with it and it doesn't really bother me. Every other file I've ever used has been messy as well, but doesn't give the results of the ped egg. My feet were pretty neglected and the next day after using this, they are in great shape. Definitely use the emery board that comes w/it. That really helps as well. If you are thinking about buying this, you should! I got mine at Sally's Beauty Supply.

I didn't read reviews, but had glanced at the overall rating of this before buying and when I saw it at Bed, Bath and Beyond (and had a coupon too), I decided to buy it. Are you kidding me? This thing is awesome! I have tried a few pumice stones and files and have never gotten close to the soft feet I have after a pedicure. So, every summer, I get a few pedicures, just so my feet aren't completely gross and calloused. Well, for a simple $10, I don't think I'll have to get pedicures again! I can trim/file/polish my own toenails and now I can completely make them soft and gorgeous. I'm telling all my friends about it so they can start off their spring/summer right too! EDIT: I took this down to 4 lippies. Although it still gets off dry skin, it never quite does the job that a pro pedicure does. It holds it off, but doesn't prevent the need for professional intervention. :)

If you don't get results from this device, you simply are not using it correctly. It is IMPOSSIBLE not to get results. Like many other reviewers, I had tried every foot file/pumic/etc under the sun with varying results. NOTHING beats this little thing. IF you have callouses or rough feet, say hello to the end of your foot-misery! I notice that replacement blades are offered, so I'm not sure how long lasting each blade is, but it sure does get the job done. The previous reviewer is right that some of the flakes do not get "captured" by the product, but most do. I had really awful, thick, ugly callouses on my feet...so bad I wouldn't wear sandals. No longer, because my feet look GREAT for the first time! I got it for 10 bucks on ebay. Miracle product. For real.

Wow, I have to say I'm very impressed with this product! I wear sandals pretty much year round (you can get away with that in Texas!), and my feet tend to get rough, dry and calloused. I've tried every file, pumice, scrub and cream but none of them work as well as this little gadget. It does a great job of taking off that hard outer layer of skin. My feet don't feel like sandpaper anymore, and I couldn't be happier!

I purchased this for $9.99 plus tax at Walgreens. For some time now I had been a different brand of foot file with mediocre results. The Ped Egg gave me the results I wanted after only one use. I love the fact that you don't have to soak your feet prior to using it. You can use it on dry (not wet with water) feet. I was able to remove all the dead skin I wanted to in about 5 minutes. The ped egg is very effective and powerful and I advise to go slowly and check progress frequently as the instructions say, because I got a little overzealous and probably removed a bit too much. I am giving this 5 stars because it does such a great job at what it claims to do, which is giving you baby soft feet. I did need to use the enclosed emery pads as a finishing touch to smooth the skin. The only negative to this product is that the skin filings do not stay inside the egg as promised. Yes, most of them do, but there was still a lot that were falling out as I used it.

I have very sensitive feet, but they get calloused, especially during summer. I have tried creams, oils and lotions, even with socks and don't get very good results. After reading about the Ped Egg, I decided to buy it at Walgreens for $9.99. You assemble it and there are 3 emery smoothers included if you want to use those when you are finished. Since my feet are very sensitive, I went lightly over the heels and not a long time, maybe 10 passes. I felt that was enough for the first time, and it did remove some of the dry skin. I guess I don't have that much bc it didn't do well for me. The residue stays inside the egg and you can open it up and dump that out. When I was finished I applied lotion. I would recommend using this lightly until you know your tolerance. Definitely keep it away from children. I got better results from a pumice stone without the harshness, so I wouldn't buy this again. UPDATE: try using a pumice stone and then Vicks VapoRub and wear socks...it works!

Oh, the Ped Egg. I've been using Tweezerman's Pedro for quite some time now, and while I kissed the ground he walked on for months, he just suddenly stopped giving me what I needed - smooth feet. I don't know why, but I'm prone to dry, cracked heels, and with slingback season around the corner, I've not really been looking forward to big pedicure bills to cure the scaliness. So when I found out that they carry Ped Egg at my local Linens N Things in my corner of Canada, I rushed out to get it.
It's an interesting design - it does look like an egg in two pieces. You take the "grater" and attach it to one side of the egg, and gently scrub off the hardened skin in an up and down motion - not around and around. The package I bought came with two emery board stickers that you stick to the bottom side of the other egg piece. The emery board helps smooth out the roughness left by the grating. I then finish off with a light application of Aquaphor, and if I've done this before bed, I don a pair of cotton socks. I'm really shocked at the results I get by the Ped Egg. Retailing for $14.99 CDN, it's more expensive here than in the US, but still a lot cheaper than a $40 pedicure. I'm very, very impressed!

Like everyone else, I jumped on the Ped Egg bandwagon. I'm so glad I did! This product took maybe 5 minutes per foot to give me soft feet. Remember to start with clean, dry feet. Afterwards, simply rinse, cover with vaseline and socks, and wear to bed. When you wake up you will be in love with your feet!

This thing sucks. It really didn't do much for me and I used it for a few minutes each foot and didn't really get any results from it. I like the idea of it it's easy to hold in your hand and all that but I tried both light pressure and just running it lightly over my foot and don't really get the hype over this product. I don't have overly scaly feet but I had a couple of rough patches I wanted to take care of and this did not do that. I'll stick with my Burt's Bees Coconut foot cream and socks at night. This things going in the trash

OMG. k so i am the typical consumer, I always want to believe that what they say the product does is what it really does!!! lol! most of the time i usually am very disappointed, to say the least. This product however totally suprised me! It did all that it claimed, and in half the time i thought it would! In fact it kind of almost made me nervous how fast it worked. lol! My feet werent bad before but i tend to get hard skin on the outer edges on my feet and scrubing with a pumice takes forever!!! So this is a wonderful wonderful lil foot saver. I am so very pleased i would buy 8 of these if i had more feet.

I had to laugh, as my mom bought this for me- she was trying to decide between the light up tweezers and this at BB&B. I am glad that she chose this, as I love it! I had used this thing from Dr. Sholl's that has these different attachments but I lost the attachment that I needed. This thing is great! I have to agree with other reviewers who talk about the shavings getting all over if you aren't careful, but, when you are working with heels, dead skin, and a shaver, I guess that you should expect some mess afterwards. I slather on lotion, put on some thick socks and I am good to go to bed!
