Unlike other reviewers I have been really impressed with this little device. So much so that I ordered two more as gifts for family members.

My daughter bought this for me for Christmas so I've been using it most weekends now for five months and I not only have not hard skin any more but it's actually been useful in smoothing around the toenails after cutting (because the rotating head is really fine). You don't need to be afraid using it either because if you press too hard the rotating head stops until you release pressure. It's all about getting used to using it.

I've recently started to use it on hubby's feet. A man who recently retired from 40+ years on his feet working outdoors with nary a pedicure or chiropodist near his tootsies ever... It's taken a couple of weeks, but his feet are looking really good and he feels the difference.

I would say that as long as you can bend to reach your feet (or you have someone to do it for you), this is a great gadget. The only reason I didn't give five stars was because I did have to faff around to get it open and set up originally, but that's probably my own gadget-a-phobia...

Wife reckons she never had such smooth skin results. Various reviews on motor is that its easy to stop but rectified by fitting heavy duty batteries.

Turns everything into a fine powder and has two different heads so you can use a metal one or the emery board type and it even trims nails.

Not any good for hard skin and the shape of the head is awkward to use.
May work on dry skin only on flat areas.

This does the job, partly, if you have very scaly, rough skin, but when it gets beyond that and you want an extra bit of softness, or to deal with 'long term hardness' it doesn't do anything. ... and you need to get the pressure just right or it stops completely. It is a bit of a faff to put together/change the head too
I think there are better products on the market for this job ...look around before buying this one.

My feet aren't particularly toughly riddled with thick skin, so this pretty much just smoothed the little bits out for me.
If you have REALLY thick foot skin, then, don't buy this. DO NOT BUY THIS. You are wasting your money and you should really go to a chiropodist. However, if like me, you have just a few bits here and there, then I think this is really great for you. I've always taken good care with my feet (not wearing certain shoes and such) and with this, my feet are REALLY smooth. The steel head feels quite rough to the touch, but once you get going, you actually don't feel it. It has a pressure head, so if you apply too much, the blade slows down, meaning you have to be quite light handed with it. I think thats a positive because if you do too much (even though you feel like you haven't done enough) you get sore (Happened to me :( sadly...) So little by little. Id soak your feet in some warm water, just to loosen the skin a bit, dry them off, then get going!

This product works a lot like a sander, for the feet. Once you're done getting the main bits smooth, you should switch heads to the buffer pad, and buff away. My feet feel so much better now, but as I said, if you have really tough cracking skin, you're better off buying one of those knife thingies (Not sure of the name) and scraping it off, or go to a chiropodist and get it professionally off. This would suit as a low cost way to maintain feet, though.

My wife has some hard skin on her feet and wanted something to deal with it.
I searched long and hard at many of the machines listed and read all the reviews.
It was very difficult to decide which ones seemed to work and which ones were going to be a waste of money.
However she decided on the JML Pedi Pro De Luxe and we waited with interest for it to arrive.
Having now used it two or three times my wife thinks it great !
Some people complained that it wasn't powerful enough and came to a standstill when you applied pressure on it.
Well I can only think that that they have skin like a walrus or were impatient to get it done in one go.
Yes - it does slow down and stop if applied too hard onto your foot. This is a safety feature to stop you damaging your foot !
The trick is to give your feet a good wash and then make sure they are completey dry. Use the machine gently to take off the outer layers of hard skin, you can use it as long as you like - just don't make your feet sore !
Afterwards use a good neutral moisturiser like Diprobase. Leave it for 2-3 days and repeat the process until you have lovely soft skin.
If you're too impatient to take the time to do this, then buy a razor and cut it off in one go !!
