Product Review: Spongeables Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer

Because I am constantly looking for a nearly effortless way to have cute, smooth feet, I was really excited to try this Spongeables Pedi-Scrub foot buffer. It's a flower-shaped sponge that cleans, exfoliates, and moisturizes feet.

The sponge has two sides: One is rough to slough away dead skin, and the other contains a soap blend to clean and soften. I tried the Lavender and Tea Tree Oil scent, which smelled nice enough, but a little artificial for my tastes (or sniffs, as the case may be). To find out how Pedi-Scrub handled my hoof-like dry feet,

Because I live in a city, my feet take a good beating every day, and I need a serious slougher to get rid of the dead skin. While the exfoliating side of the sponge felt good on my feet, it wasn't enough to tackle my rough heels. That's fine if you just want a little massage and a light buffing, but you'll need a pumice stone for anything more. Also, since the soap is glycerin-based, it's pretty slippery, so you'll have to be careful in the shower (or use it while taking a bath, as I did). After using it, I felt pretty "meh" — not a bad product, but not an astounding one, either.

Or so I thought. While I wasn't shot down with Pedi-Scrub while I was bathing, I did like its effects a lot more after I'd settled into bed. The soap is actually pretty moisturizing, and my feet felt soft without any lotion. While this sponge is not enough to replace a pumice stone, it did moisturize well. Is this an absolute must-have, can't-live-without product? Nope. But it's not a bad one, and if I saw it on sale, I might pick it up and incorporate it into my pedicure-night routine. It's available for $4.99 at drugstores and

I have one of these and almost broke my neck after saving myself from slipping the first time I used it! That said, my feet take a beating in the summer so I get bad heels, etc, you name it. It def doesn't do what a good pedi does, but it does smooth them out a bit. Not sure if I'd buy it again.

I use a soap with buffing grains built in and that works wonderfully.

Performita - I am definitely going to try that trick. I was always blessed with low-maintenance, nice feet, and I had soft, supple skin with very little effort. All that changed after pregnancy, though - I got Mom Feet! It's ridiculous. I don't do anything that different, activity-wise. I guess it was just a body change or something, but it takes a lot more maintenance to keep things nice, now.

Hmm...slippery and me don't mix well, I'm a huge klutz, I'm always dropping things in the shower I don't even try bar soaps anymore because there I get tired of the melee. I tend to drop EVERY little thing in the shower, usually when there are other people in the house who can hear and think I'm dying in there or something...oh wow, I totally got off topic, sorry, yeah I think I'll try this since its so cheap I just hope its not too slippery! :)

Dear Bella Plain Baking soda will do the miracle. Believe me. Bath your feet in warm or almost hot water and baking soda for about 15 min. Then add some more baking soda to a wet towel or some other cloth and rub your feet with it. Wash them and dry, them put a lot Vaseline on them. Wear cotton socks over the night to protect the sheets or not if you are going to change the sheets anyway... This will give you baby-feet ;) I am so happy with my feet after I discovered this old-fashion pampering :D
