Does Ped Egg really work?If you’ve seen the Ped Egg on TV you might have wondered could it possibly work the way it seems. This is one of those products that almost looks too simple to be believable. Some have likened it to a cheese grater for your feet. But is that all it is, or is there more to this little invention than meets the eye?

Overview
Getting regular pedicures can be expensive, and the thought is that if you get a Ped Egg you’ll be able to give yourself the same kind of results at home. Dry, rough feet are a problem for many people, and there’s not really a lot of great solutions out there. Moisturizers seem to have no effect, and within a few days your feet are right back to their dried out ways.

The Claim
The folks at Ped Egg say that it is the fastest way to make your feet feel smooth and healthy with no mess whatsoever. They say that it gently removes calluses and dead skin so that your feet will have that baby soft look and feel instead of being so dried out and cracked.

That’s basically the gist of all their claims, they don’t really beat a dead horse or try to come up with a bunch of other uses for their product. This seems to be a successful way to go about things, state one simple claim and make sure that your product lives up to it.


The Hype
The hype comes from people trying this out, seeing that it works, and telling people about it. The quality and effectiveness of as seen on TV products has gotten a lot better over the years. In the 80s and 90s they were kind of a joke in most instances, but in the new millennium it seems they have turned a corner and it’s about a 50-50 shot. In this case Ped Egg is one product that actually lives up to its hype.

The Cost
Ped Egg is priced correctly at a low amount because even though it’s effective it’s basically just made of plastic and a little metal. You can get it for around seven dollars at Amazon and it qualifies for the free super saver shipping, or you can go through the main site and get it for $17 and it comes with extra bonuses. It also comes with some upsells that you’ll have to decline if you don’t want them.

The Commitment
Staying committed to proper foot care is harder than you may think. The reason our feet get so bad is because they take a lot of abuse on a daily basis and we barely find time for maintenance. The reason pedicures are so popular is because frankly it’s just no fun scrubbing away at your feet. Sticking to any sort of foot care regimen is really hard over the long term. After the novelty of receiving your Ped Egg wears off, you’ll have to resolve yourself to using it on a regular basis.

Evaluation
Ped Egg comes in two varieties, you can either get it solo, or with a handle. If you have trouble touching your toes or reaching your feet when you bend over, the handle might be a good idea, but most people find the original handle-free model to work just fine from a seated position. The handle also does away with the ingenious egg shape, taking away some of its ergonomic quality.

Regardless of which style Ped Egg you go with you’ll realize within a few moments of use that this thing actually works. It doesn’t cause any pain, and if you try to use it on areas that aren’t dry, flaky, and callousy it doesn’t do anything. As soon as you rub it over a rough part of your foot it kicks in and starts grating off the accumulated, dried out, and dead skin. Try doing that with a cheese grater.

The proof that it works is seeing all of the powdery results left over inside the Ped Egg after it catches it.

Final Ped Egg Review

Ped Egg definitely gets the job done and lives up to many of its claims. One of the things it doesn’t quite do perfectly is deal with all of the mess made. It doesn’t quite catch everything that comes off your feet, and the Ped Egg can split apart in your hands making just as much of a mess as if it didn’t catch anything at all.

By following up your Ped Egg treatment with the emery sheets they include, as well as with a high quality moisturizer you supply on your own, you’ll feel like you just got a professional pedicure.

Our Recommendation
If you suffer from a chronic case of dried out feet and your only option up until now has been to get them done by a professional, you should try out the Ped Egg and see if it’s a solution for you. By using the Ped Egg for the rough stuff and the included emery pads to polish things off, should have salon quality feet in no time.

What do you think? Does Ped Egg work or not?

I love my Ped egg! I bought it a few years ago and the included emory pads have long since worn out so I just use regular emory boards to smooth, but all the tough dead skin that looks so horrible is gone when I use mine.

I am bad about not taking care of my feet through the winter months so the first time I use it in spring the mess is horrible. I have to put a towel down under it to catch what the egg doesn’t but even with that and it occasionally coming apart when I use it I have to say it is still the best thing I have ever used.

Going on 3 years and the metal part is still sharp enough to take care of my feet, to me that says everything!

I really enjoyed the Ped Egg because I have a problem with rough dry feet, but when I use the Ped Egg and follow it up with my favorite lotion, my feet are smooth and soft instead of rough and hard. Now I don’t have to spend 15$ on a Pedicure! I highly recommend this.

I bought a Ped Egg a couple of years ago and personally did not like it. Maybe I’m too lazy, but I prefer the battery operated foot filer instead. It’s easier and doesn’t make as much of a mess. I didn’t realize they came in a “handled” variety – maybe I’d have better luck with that one. Glad it works for some people, but still, I think I’ll stick to my electronic one.

Man, my mind is so susceptible to the right kind of marketing. I had to buy something like this for my wife because she refuses to wear sensible shoes (which I am convinced is the source of the very thick, rough pads of skin on her feet, despite her claims that this has nothing to do with it) and I chose this one because it was cheap and because the phonetics of the name felt good in my ear. Ped-egg. Lovely sound. The wife had no problem with it and it did the job as well as can be expected. Bit messy, but then is there really a better way to do this?

I have very rough calloused feet so I bought the ped egg. I used the time while I dyed my hair to ped egg my feet. Today, I can hardly walk. Over did it. I’m not saying it didn’t work, it did remove some of the rough dry skin, just be careful, go in steps. Don’t overdo and use the “sanding” pads to remove leftover dry skin. And lotion, apply lots of lotion afterwards.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
First of all the commercial is such a farce. ☆power is next to nothing, with new batteries and all. We traded it for another but still the same. The commercial shows a bunch of callus powder just full inside the egg, so not true. When both my husband and I did this, their wasn’t even a 1/8 tsp. Inside. All they wanted was a quick money maker. YOU LIVE AND LEARN!

Perhaps you and yours are blessed with baby smooth skin. I am a TRUE SKEPTIC of most things and people; however I can 100% attest to the effectiveness of the product.

It isn’t going to do anything unless you have dry and/or calloused and cracked skin. Also you can’t use with the least bit of water or other moisture on your feet- use it and moisturize after VIOLA! Baby smooth!

I have been using Ped-Egg since it came out years ago. Every time I use it there is lots of shavings inside the egg. I use it on dry feet (at times, ever so slightly damp/mostly dry feet). Maybe you’re not doing it with dry/slightly damp feet. You won’t get shavings when you feet are real damp/wet.

I have mine for two years and it is still doing what they said. The best part is the sanding pads that came with it. I still have the same pad on mine. It removes dry skin in seconds, you don’t need to use it for a long time. If you use it and then soak your feet you will never have dry skin problems.

THANKS PED EGG!!!!!!

This product is by far one of the best I’ve ever used. I get regular pedicures and have owned a parrafin wax machine foe years.

However, failing to use my parrafin regularly and inadequate water intake resulted in dry feet and cracked heels so i decided to try it. I am over the moon pleased!

best and only thing that has works on my feet. I bought it about 6months ago. first time I used it I had sore heals for about s month. I did have over 40 years of thick dry skin on my heels tho. I’d tried emery board things and the thing that looks lol a mini sander. that one helped but wouldn’t remover the thick skin. I use that one after the peg egg as its a great finishing/smoothing option. anyway. used the peg egg every two months and it works perfectly. and never had sore heels again after the first use. very impressed with the peg egg.

Bought the peg egg used it then returned it. I could not deal with dead skin falling on my floor.

Using a big towel on the floor sorts this problem no more mess.
I bought the Ped Egg a few days ago from an op shop not used for $4 bargain.
When I went out I always wear high heels since I was 16 now 58.
It was painful to walk for too long. Used it very impressed pain is less
I would recommend

I love the ped egg !! It really works. Use it on clean, dry feet, and give it some time, like getting a pedicure. I usually use the egg for about 3 minutes on each foot, wash my feet, and moisturize after. It really is like going to the spa ! Only a lot cheaper.

I LOVE this so much. In fact I do a 100x better job than an actual pedicure at a salon. My feel are so smooth and if you do every night before bed you can remove any cracked skin and make your feet baby smooth!
