Scholl Footcare Review and Giveaway

I’m not a huge fan of feet. In fact, I hate my feet, and other than painting my toenails and moisturising them when I think about it, I don’t do much to them, especially through the winter when they’re in thick socks and UGG boots.

When we had that heatwave a few weeks ago, I treated myself to a lovely new pair of sandals, but then was embarrassed about wearing them because of the state of my feet, particularly my heels which were all cracked and a bit grim. I tried using one of those cheap hard skin remover things, but it was about as useful as a chocolate fireguard, and no amount of foot cream was going to make them look better. I couldn’t wait to try out the Scholl Velvet Smooth Diamond Crystals Express Pedi.


The roller head has micro abrasive particles and finally ground diamond crystals (and is all sparkly!) to remove al the dead and hard skin off feet. I didn’t think for one minute it would get rid of it all, but hoped it might make them a little less manky.


I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it already comes supplied with batteries – that doesn’t happen very often. I immediately put it through it’s paces on my feet. I’ll spare you the photos – no one needs to put through the trauma of seeing my feet – but it worked. Not just a little bit, but got rid of all the hard skin. It took about five minutes per foot, which wasn’t too bad and the device is ergonomically designed so it is comfortable to hold.

It didn’t hurt like traditional foot scrapers can, and was actually quite a nice tickle. The only thing that I hated was the amount of lovely ‘skin dust’ that ended up all over my black jeans. Yuck. Once I had got rid of the skin, I covered my feet in some of the Scholl Instant Recovery Foot Cream, and went to bed in a pair of socks (yep, that was a good look!).

The next day my feet felt lovely and soft, and there was no hard skin to be seen anywhere. Typically, the sun has now decided to do one, and my feet are back in thick socks rather than my sandals.


Just in case the sun does decide to make a reappearance, I can offer a reader the chance to win a Scholl foot care set to make their feet look, feel and smell lovely. The kit includes Fresh Step Shoe Spray, Instant Recovery Foot Cream and Party Feet Gel Cushions. I can’t offer you the pedi roller, but they are available to buy from Tesco and Boots for around Β£29.99 – well worth it in my opinion.
