Influenster Review: PROFOOT Pedi-Rock

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

This is another product for the feet that I really should not be reviewing, this time because my feet are probably the most ticklish part of my body and even doing a pedicure is a challenge. Oddly, I have tried using pumice stones several times over the past 20+ years that I have been aware of them. I am one of those people who wants to take part in a every beauty ritual I learn of including ones for the feet, but alas, I can never run anything along the bottom or sides of my feet more than once without ending up in hysterics.

For this product I was solely looking to see if I could actually touch it to my feet and not start laughing hysterically.

But first, the packaging and text from it:

Now on with the review:

It is squishy. The texture is rough and it hurts the palm of my hands when I hold it.

I tried using it dry on the bottoms and sides of my feet and I ended up not being able to stand more than one swipe of it on either foot.

There is also the added problem of the fact that I don’t have dry skin on my feet. Nor do I have any calluses to speak of so I don’t really need a Pedi-Rock, but I really did want to use it.

Perhaps if you skin on your feet is dry and callused, you might be able to use this. But if you have highly ticklish feet and have never been able to use a pumice stone before, this one probably isn’t going to work either.
