Overview

  • Pros:

    Simple to use and did not require special chargers or hard to source battery sizes. Fits in the hand nicely and is comfortable to hold.
    Removes the hard skin in a very gentle way so no reason to run into trouble by “overdoing it”.

  • Cons:

    The packaging is dull and uninspiring as if the target audience is the elderly all trapped in the world of TV commercials that target their ailments.
    The action is slow so no quick fix and so you must keep at it which some would find boring.

  • Conclusion:

    A very handy piece of kit that every woman should have in their arsenal of beauty gadgets. Easily done over a towel or piece of paper while watching TV. If only the presentation wasn’t so boring and old looking.

They say: Buffs away hard and jagged skin on the feet. Specially designed, splash proof, lightweight device that fits easily into the hand. Abrasive roller rotates at 40 revolutions a second through 360 degrees.
We say: I was impressed with this tool for many reasons. Firstly, it was super comfortable to hold and very light and not at all unpleasant to touch. The plastic had a nice feel to it. I liked the pink accents against the crisp white so once I had jettisoned the plastic and cardboard it looked far more modern and aimed at everyone not just geriatrics. Just updating their cardboard insert would mean more people stopping to look at it. Inserting the batteries was simple and the whole thing clicked back together with no effort. Nothing worse than spending time fiddling with a cover trying to ram it back in place or trying to get it to open.

The buffing action was smooth and even without me having to apply any pressure at all.  You just hold the device in place and slowly run the roller back and forth.  There was a satisfying amount of dry skin spinning off. Applying a bit more pressure did not make a great deal of difference so just let the roller do its work in its own time. This is for sure a regular maintenance kind of tool as opposed to a quick fix. Carnation offer another one of these tools with a more intensive level of skin removal if you feel this one is too gentle for you.

However, always remember that your feet need some hardened skin to deal with the impact of walking and moving about. So, the aim is reduce the area and prevent cracks forming but not take it too far. As with all these tools having them at home means no waiting for a pedicure appointment and even if you are lucky enough to have a regular pedicure then this will fill in the gaps.   It’s a good tool that should be in everyone’s bathroom – both male and female

Packaging

I would love to see the Carnation range in a modern aimed at young people packaging way. The colours are too safe and the whole thing is boring but delivers the product safely.

Effectiveness

For sure this is effective and gentle and I really liked the results.

Value for Money

Really good value as an initial outlay. I did not find out the cost of replacement roller or use it long enough to wear the initial one out so bear that in mind.
