One Of The Most Dangerous Beauty Tools: The Callus Shaver
Got foot calluses?
Sandal season has begun, and for many of you, ourself included, it's frustrating trying to get rid of thick, dry rough skin on the heels and balls of the feet.
Sure, you can try and pumice stone away those nasty Hobbit feet, slather on expensive creams at night with a pair of socks, use prescription serums on the leathery soles, use the 'tame' Ped-Egg shaver, allow a pedicurist or podiatrist to deal with them, or------
Buy the callus shaver. Please don't laugh too hard, but this is one of our FAVORITE beauty tools, however, you CAN hurt yourself and bleed. So, the callus shaver is one of the most dangerous beauty tools out there.
If you have perfectly smooth soles, then good for you---We are envious. But if you seem to develop thick, dry heels, etc., then you need to arm yourself with a tough beauty weapon.
Look at the photo of what a typical callus shaver looks like. It comes with a razor blade. You simply and carefully, glide the shaver across the callus removing thin layers of hard, dead skin. Then snap the rasp onto the head of the shaver and work back and forth over the callused area to smooth the skin.
For us, the callus shaver works like a charm. Yes, we have cut into our feet upon a few clumsy occasions. Make sure, you don't hurry the job, and make sure your replace the razor when it gets dull. Other than that, we LOVE this thing! It really works!
We found a good callus shaver from Tweezerman for only $4.99 at Ulta.
Ulta reviewers gave the Tweezerman Callus Shaver a 3.1 rating out of a possible 5 stars. We beg to differ. Some people don't know how to properly use a callus shaver, and it takes a bit of practice to make it work effectively. Even replacing the blade can be tricky, but you'll get the hang of it.
Be gone, ugly Hobbit feet!See you during sandal season!
