I go barefoot for much of the time so my feet do get crusty and horrible. This does the job when pumice stones and other foot files don't. The shavings don't stay inside the container, but who cares. Just do it over the side of the bath. When I first got it I used it every day for five days in a row, slathering my feet in lotion followed by socks before bed. This got my feet into really fantastic condition. Since then I've only had to use it once a week for maintenance. Australians take note - at present this is only sold via horrible infomercials for a ridiculous price, however I bought mine off American Ebay for around $20AU after taking into account shipping and the exchange rate. So if you've been looking at the price and thinking how ridiculous, look at Ebay to see if you can get a good deal.

This is an amazing product! It really works at getting rid of thick, cracking skin on your feet. Where other devices fall short, the Ped Egg does wonders. Definitely read the directions: do not use when your feet are damp or wet and do not use a back and forth motion. I love this and have recommended it to all my friends who are have gotten it and also love it. A must for the summer season and for using year round to make sure your feet say in great condition.

Does the jo, but be careful - if you're too vigorous, you will hurt your feet.

This thing just works. I agree with another review from a while ago that said it actually works better if your feet HAVE been moisturized lately. I'll wash my feet in the shower, put lotion on them and then put on socks, and wait about 15 minutes or so for it to sink in before I use the Ped Egg, and there's no denying that i get better results that way than if i use it on dry, unmoisturized feet like the package recommends. Then you have to use the emery board part to smooth everything out at the end, re-apply lotion and socks, and ta da. You just gave yourself a fancypants pedicure (minus the polish), for free.
For the people complaining that it's messy - it's really not THAT messy, unless you're a huge klutz about dropping it and getting the little foot shreds everywhere, and then whatever you just sweep it up and move on with your life.
If you want that gross calloused skin off of your feet, it has to go SOMEwhere, doesn't it? Contrary to what lotion manufacturers want you to think, once you've built up huge callouses on your feet, no amount of moisturizing is going return that skin back to normal. You've got to get rid of the dead skin, and this is a good and cheap way of getting that done, as unpleasant of a task as it is.

The only useful thing about it was the additional adhesive buffer pads, they were awesome, spa-like smooth finish! Only 3 though, and a mint to reorder which I didn't.
The actual, shamefully gross callous scraper was junk, dull and slightly painful to use. Like everyone who buys this thing, my feet are......(mm hmm) but what kind must you have for this thing to work? And of course very flimsy and overpriced at $9 Walgreens.
I'll stick with my Solingen callous scraper and fabulous new Earth Therapeutics pumice sponge from Whole Foods, it's firm, angled for sole and heel and no stress to my hands. And at $3 I'll forget dreams of diamancel files
Would anyone accept ped egg as a throw in?? Probably not.

Ok, so it doesn't work miracles and goodness knows the way it's marketed isn't appealing, but this does the trick when a pumice stone doesn't cut it and I haven't found anything more effective than this product. My feet get just horrible in the winters. Actually they get horrible in the summers too. I hate wearing socks and slippers around the house so my feet get calloused fast. They peel and crack and look just horrible. I'm 22 and don't want my feet looking like I'm 80. I can't afford to go get pedicures all the time and the ped egg works well. It does just what it says and when I follow it with a nice heavy foot cream (I use Burt's Bees Coconut foot cream and there is NOTHING better on the market) my feet are looking good as new before I know it. I just need to get better about applying my coconut cream at night so my feet don't get to this state in the first place *le sigh*.
It's a little messy, but way safer than those scrapey things with the scary looking blades and much more effective than sloughing creams and chemicals. Definitely a good thing to have around the house. It works best 20 minutes or so after I take a shower or bath when my skin is fully dry, yet still soft-ish from the shower. It's simple and painless and I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from calloused feet. All I can say is thank goodness you don't have to order it through an info-mercial any more because I'd have never tried it that way (I got mine at Target).

I am in love with it!!! It DOES work. Let me start by confessing I have extremely dry and rough feet, I have tried a bunch of creams, exfoliators, etc and they helped but my skin wouldnt get any softer. Went shopping last weekend and found it at my Target, I decided to give it a try since it was only $10 but, honestly, my expectations were really low. After the first use (easy and painless) I was amazed to see the dramatic improvement on the appereance of my feet, dryness and my horrible cracked heel were gone. I will absolutely repurchase the replacements for it, and hope it never goes out of market!!

I defintely would have never bought this unless I'd seen it reviewed here. I don't usually buy the 'as seen on tv' gimics, but this is actually one that works. After a few days of using this, my feet were renewed and soft. I actually like the black buffer file, it smooths out the little rough spots after you use the ped egg. It is AMAZING how much dead skin this thing will scoff off!! At 10 bucks, I am very pleased!

I think this is a pretty good product. My dry feet develop calluses and this gets rid of them in a way so my creams and potions can work. It saves me trips for peddies. My main reason for liking it is the ergonomic shape: paddles are so unwieldly and I always have problems getting at the right angles. With the Ped Egg it fits in your palm and it's no problem getting at any area on your foot. Basically I'm as excited as I can be by a lil ol foot polisher.

I'm kind of indifferent about this product. I was really excited when I got the product (from Bed Bath and Beyond) but I agree with some of the comments previously left. It is very messy and does dull easily. I find that it doesn't give as smooth of a result as a good pumice stone. This is a good product if you have very rough callouses that haven't been treated in a long while, but not so good if you regularly exfoliate your feet.

count me in as another one of the skeptics, then I read the reviews on here and gave it a try. It's so simple, but it does a great job. My feet were very calloused and I thought nothing would help. I've tried heavy duty lotions, and heel creams without relief. This is the only thing that has made the soles of my feet smooth and soft. It turned my rock hard callouses into dust!

Love this product. I thought it would be just another one of those infomercial-crap products, but for $10 at my local Wal-Mart, this was the answer to my rough, dry feet. I use it once and it really gets rid of all the dry areas on my heals, the balls of my feet, and that one large callus that stick out from my big toe. It takes care of everything. The design is a little flimsy and it does dull rather quickly, but what can you do. I use this once before bed, put lotion on my feet, and then put on some really breathable cotton socks and in the morning, my feet are simply beautiful. It's weird how when your feet look nice and feel nice, you feel better. My feet and hands are always gonna get the best treatment and this is one of the better products I own.

Hello I order it by the net, I live in Spain and the comercials start with it. It´s the solution for my horrible-dry-feet. I love it. I´ve bee using it for a couple of months and I´m still happy with it.

I was hesitant at first about this product since it looked like it would hurt but no! I love it! It really does work, thank goodness because in the past I would use the pumice stone in the shower and it did not seem to really do anything.
The only complaint I have is to make sure you don’t turn the thing upside-down while using because all the fine shavings will fall out all over the place.

The Ped Egg works! It literally shaves off all the dead skin and leaves your feet feeling smooth and soft. Since California regulations have prohibited nail salons from shaving customer's feet, I've been looking for something to do it myself at home and this is it!

Love it love it love it! This contraption works better than anything I've ever tried. Rasps, pumice stones, pumice sponges, those callus shaver things with the razor blade in them -- you name it, nothing ever gave me the results I get from the PedEgg.
One gripe about the design is that sometimes it's difficult to remove the egg part that holds the shavings from the file part. If I wore artificial fingernails I'm sure I'd have lost a few to it.
It's almost hard to call the skin that is removed from your feet "shavings" as mine ends up more the texture of a powder than a shaving. Yes, this powder does fall out of the holes in the file when held at certain angles, but frankly this thing works so well I wouldn't care if there was nothing to collect the shavings.
I'm so happy to learn that they sell replacement blades as I was ready to bite the bullet and buy a whole new egg!

Oh Ped Egg, where have you been all my life? I cannot even tell you how dry my feet are. Whenever I get a pedi, I get a lecture from the manicurist. My feet look better than after a pedi. I am glad I read the reviews though, b/c it really is messy--so I sat on my sink counter and did it there. That was really the best $9.99 I've spent. Now I need to find where to get he replacement blades :-)

Ugh so I bought this item because I had seen the commercials, and they had it at Walgreens. Its a waste of $10. It doesn't work on dry skin and I couldn't see a difference on my feet. Any of the other drugstore brands I've used have been much better, and less complicated.

love this product. i've tried the microplane footfile for a month and ped egg the next month, once every week. please please that if a pumice stone works for you, you may not need these as they are sharp and even if you have serious callus, take care NOT to over file as you CAN over file which leads to a sore sole.
1.the microplane cover pops open very easily while the ped egg is pretty secure. if you find some of the shavings fall out keep in mind because of the holes in the blades and at a certain angle, you're bound to get a bit of shavings to escape somehow.
2. it's difficult to manuveur the microplane because it's like a file and you hold the handle while the ped egg seems more comfortable to grip since it's shaped like an egg.
3. the blades of the ped egg is much sharper than the microplane so that means less time filing but please keep in mind never to over file esp with the ped egg since it's sharper, takes less time. if not, you'll end up with sore soles like my first time using the ped egg. i was so happy how fast it shaves that i didn't realise i was overdoing it.
4. ped egg has the emery boards while microplane does not. this is very important after you've finished filing because it will buff the rough skin and you get 3 with the ped egg.
5. you can replace the blades on the ped egg by purchasing the blades alone that comes in a 3 pack, i think it's the same price $9.99. while the blades in the microplane is not replacable and all blades dull with time. you can get them at several stores, i've seen them in bed,bath and beyond and cvs.
6. this one i'm not 100% sure but i noticed that the blades on the ped egg shaves both ways, forwards and backwards, i think with the microplane, one direction was more sharper than the other but not quite sure maybe it's me but that's how i felt.
7. i have callus in the middle of the ball of foot? i can't discribe it, it's under my second toe from the big toe. i have that one spot that always developes callus and it was hard to get that middle spot with the microplane. amazingly i didn't have a problem with the ped egg, i think the way the blades are that seems to stick out more, it reached that narrow spot. good luck trying to understand why i'm trying to say here, but it's a hard spot to get.
i have not complaints about the ped egg except to be careful and i wish it came in different colors.

Totally works! Buy one and get the extra blades. UPDATE - many times blades are dull. Quality has slipped. Especially the pack of extra refills. Have stopped buying.
