Review | Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Hey everyone! 

Hope you've all been having a great week!! It's been pretty hot in Sydney (I think it was 45 degrees last friday *_*) but somehow, I still manage to get dry skin especially in my heels area. I've recently been sent the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi so I'm super excited to get rid of the dryness on my feet. I know the topic of feet is not for everyone, but I thought this product was pretty cool and it's been pretty popular as I've been seeing it around in catalogues all year round! This pedicure set is great for giving your feet some love during the holiday season :) 

I think it was the beginning of 2015 when I first started noticing this product in catalogues that are sent to my house. My mum has extremely dry feet (so i think it runs in the family LOL) so she was really interested in trying this product because nothing really seemed to help and this kind of product was pretty new to the market. I think she used to use the NS-8 cream but it worked whilst she used it but after she stopped, it was  back to dry cracked feet again. Let's take a look at the details of this product. 

Brand: Scholl
Name: Velvet Smooth Express Pedi 
Price: $55.99 AUD
Weight:  -
Shade:  You can get it in Pink or Blue
Where to purchase: Priceline, Woolworths, Coles, Discount Chemists
Description: Scholl Velvet smooth Electronic Foot File Get soft beautiful feet effortlessly. Velvet Smooth Roller Head with long lasting micro-abrasive particles now comes with finely ground diamond crystals. It buffs away hard skin in an instant* leaving you with fabulous visibly smooth feet. It's so easy to use - gently rotate the file over hard skin and see the dead skin disappear.
What does it come with? : 
1 x Electronic Foot File
1 x Coarse Roller Head
4 x AA Batteries
1 x Cover

So in a nuthsell, the express pedi is an electronic foot file that helps to buff away dry skin using the coarse roller head that rotates when you turn it on! The Coarse roller head is removable and should be replaced after a couple of uses or else it'll lose it's ability to buff away the dry skin. After ever use, you also need to detach the roller head and give it a rinse to get rid of the dirty stuff. Leave it to dry and then attach it back on, along with the cover that comes with the pack. 

When I use the Express Pedi, I like to get a large sheet of newspaper or any kind of paper to place onto the floor to catch all the dead skin that get buffed away during the treatment. Then you can just go ahead and turn on the Express pedi by turning the metal bit to the left. You hold onto the handle which is made from a rubbery kind of material making it easy to grip allowing you to easily control where you want to buff the roller head, which is mostly in the heel area for me - but this will vary from person to person! You will see the Express Pedi work it's job and fine white specks of skin will be visibly buffed off your feet - it's a pretty satisfying feeling! It's recommended that you don't buff on the same area for more than 3 seconds! 

As for results, I think it did a really decent job in removing the dryness on my heels and so i would recommend this for those with mild dryness on the feet. However, for those with more severe, thick, dry cracked skin on the feet, this will only be able to get rid on the surface and can't completely remove everything. All in all, I think this is a great product but the price may just be a drawback for some people because $55 is a lot to invest into a product like this. However, I guess on the long run it is more worth it than going to a pedicure salon! 


Scholl Velvet Smooth Intense Serum 

Brand: Scholl
Name: Velvet Smooth Intense Serum 
Price: $14.99 AUD
Weight:  30mL
Shade:  -
Where to purchase: Priceline, Woolworths, Coles, Discount Chemists
Description: The Scholl Velvet Smooth Intense Serum is our first foot serum and contains Hyaluronic Acid, Green Caviar and Pentavitin. The high-quality ingredients ensure that the moisture balance in the skin is maintained. It was especially developed for very dry foot skin.

This serum is from the same Velvet Smooth range and is designed to be used after you've buffed away the dry skin using the Express Pedi for foot care and treatment. I like that this comes in a pump bottle form. It contains three main ingredients:

 - Hyaluronic acid: for hydration purposes
-  Pentavitin: to retain the skins moisture balance
- Green Caviar: contains nutrients with hydration benefits

My feet definitely feels more hydrated and moisturised after applying the serum to my heels. The best thing about this product is that it's very light and quickly absorbs into the skin which is great during the summer time because the last thing you want is to apply something to your feet that feels sticky and thick!!

Eulactol Heel Balm Gold 

Brand: Scholl
Name: Eulactol Heel Balm Gold 
Price: $13.99 AUD
Weight:  60mL
Shade:  -
Where to purchase: Priceline, Coles, Discount Chemists
Description: A non-greasy heel balm to effectively restore dry, cracked heels with visible results in 3 days.

The Eulactol Heel Balm GOLD is slightly different to the serum because it targets cracked heels. This comes in a squeezy tube with double the amount of product as the serum. It also comes in the form of a cream so the consistency is definitely thicker so I like to apply this cream before I go to bed so that i'm not walking around and getting the product everywhere! Because the dryness on my feet wasn't too severe, my heels looked pretty great after using this product for 2-3 nights. However, for my mum, after using this cream, her heels were still pretty dry and skin was not as hard and thick as it was before, so the product is slowly working. 


Thank you to everyone who made it to the end of another lengthy post of mine! I tried to keep it as short and straight to the point as possible (but it still turned out pretty long >_<) 
With Summer just around the corner in Sydney, it is super important to keep your feet looking great when wearing sandals and shoes that expose your feet! Scholl also has other pedicure sets that you can purchase from any drugstore such as Priceline for your nails if you fancy a manicure :)
