’s review – Japonesque Callus Shaver
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!
