Re-designed for the man in mind, but possibly better than the original...,
This review is from: Emjoi MICRO Pedi Man (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has been given to a male member of the family who, having never used one of these devices before is really quite impressed. I myself am a big fan of the Emjoi pedi systems and I have purchased two different female equivalents in the past, for myself and my mother (Emjoi Micro-Pedi Portable Pedicure Device and Emjoi Micro-Pedi PROFESSIONAL Portable Pedicure Device)
What I really like about this one is the size and shape of it - it's actually more comfortable and more compact than the pro model that I own. It fits perfectly into your hand so it's much easier to hold and to manoeuvre around. The feedback I received was that it's "unbelievably quick" and that "it's much better than using a foot file." I have to agree with this as these were my first thoughts too, when I first used a micro pedi.
The Emjoi Micro Pedi Man has been redesigned to be marketed to men. Could a woman use it? Yes, I personally don't see why not. The roller's available for this unit are coarser, but I have checked and the roller attachments from my Emjoi actually do fit fine on this unit. Plus, the extra-coarse men's rollers are not so coarse that a women couldn't use them - we're not talking about shaving products after all and you just need to choose the correct coarseness of roller, based on the condition of your feet. Bear in mind that the women's pro version has 2 speeds, so this men's version is more akin to the standard women's model which only has one speed.
The styling on this unit does look admittedly a little cheap (it's the silver areas and the red switch) but the unit itself is good value for money. I think this would be a great gift idea for a man as feet are often overlooked and if he's already using a foot file, this one is going to be an impressive upgrade as it really does buff away all the dry skin in a fraction of the time. If you follow up a buffing session with some foot cream, it really makes your feet soft. If you're a woman reading this review and comparing units, remember that all the Emjoi rollers (with varying coarseness) are interchangeable so you can use the ones marketed to women, with this model. The men's Micro Pedi system is the same high quality as the standard original: it's gets great results, very quickly - plus it's just so much easier to clutch in your hand and manoeuvre around.
