’s review – Japonesque Callus Shaver

by on February 10, 2012 · 9 comments

One of the things I love getting done when I visit my mom is a pedicure from Studio 3 in Athens, Tennessee. Keisha, the girl that also does my mom’s tootsies does amazing pedicures. And the best thing about it is that she uses a callus shaver to take every last bit of dead skin off your feet. If you’ve never had your feet shaved, you’re missing out, although I’ve found it difficult to get this done in the UK. Many beauty technicians have told me it’s not common practice here.

It has been a long, long time since Keisha went to work on my hooves so luckily I was sent a callus shaver from Japonesque to review recently. I was already familiar with the Japonesque brand, having used some of their makeup tools when I was at the London College of Fashion. When the shaver arrived at work, I squealed with delight and amused my colleagues with my new toy. This comes in a really nice box and would be great for gift, I know that sounds a bit daft but I’d be happy to get one!

So what does this bad boy do? Well it takes off all that hard skin on the bottom of your feet that you’ve been trying to get rid of with foot scrub and pumice stone. While things thing have their place, I think it’s fair to say that some hard skin isn’t coming off unless you take drastic measures. The best thing about using a callus shaver is that it is gentle and doesn’t scratch the way scrubs can. Yes you do need to be careful, and this isn’t recommended if you are diabetic or a hemophiliac. The shaver itself is also easy to grip as the handle is a smooth matte finish plastic. It’s always best to soak your feet first or have a shower/bath before you start shaving.

Because I love you all, I won’t be showing you before and after shots of my feet or a little pile of dead skin. I’m sure you all have vivid enough imaginations about how smooth the bottom of my feet have become. I’d much rather leave you with some photos from the Japonesque catalogue which are far more exciting…

Yes, those are spatulas that you see in top left-hand corner. Everyone should have spatulas! 

Play pick-n-mix with these gorgeous palettes, and the divider can be used to make custom shades. 

Are you on the eternal quest for perfect brows? This brow groomer has scissors and comb to guide you. 

 Has anyone else tried Japonesque goodies? What did you think?

haven’t tried Japonesque, but I LOVE my callus shaver. Although I’ve had to promise not to do it anywhere near Luke…

I had a feeling you’d be a member of the feet shaving club! :D

Eek and Yeurch in equal measure the concept of this has made my head spin round and I’d no more let someone near my feet with one of these than a drunk with a cut throat razer give me a bikini trim. I am recoiling in horror from my computer monitor as I type! I might, possibly try one on my own feet, maybe, perhaps. But in all honesty I think I’ll stick to scrubs and a pumice stone! xx

Deb tell us how you really feel! LOL I’ll bet someone would pay to have a cut throat razor bikini trim – maybe it’s a new service you could offer at the hotel xoxo

This sounds like something I need to add to my wish list… my feet are terrible! Scrubs and pumices don’t even make a dent! I have had my feet ‘shaved’ by a chiropodist before, but never at a beauticians – I think you have to go ‘medical’ in the uk if you want someone else to do it! xx

Oh that explains it, I guess the US is a bit more lax about these things. You’ve just reminded me that I’ve only finished one body lotion this month, I better get a move on eh? :D

Now this is something I do actually need in my life! I hate my feet and “shaving” isn’t something that’s done in a salon over here well not that I’ve found…would have to go to a chiropodist to have it done which would cost a good £20+ might as well buy one myself for that price!

Thanks for sharing – I had no idea I could buy these myself *blush* xx
