Product Review: Emjoi MICRO-Pedi

The heavens have answered me and I have finally gotten something I needed for a LONG time coming, a "foot buffer" if you will. Now I don't have the best of feet but I certainly do not have the worst. I knew that I needed to invest in one of these soon if I wanted to keep running because the way my sneakers were chaffing against my heels was not pretty.
So here's the product, the MICRO-Pedi (which also came with two extra rollers) is designed to, remove rough, dry and calloused skin from your feet while being safer and more effective than metal scrapers, which uses blades to cut the skin. 

Now putting the product to the test. I knew that I had some problem areas on my foot aka my heel that I would like to take care of, it was a bit rough around the edges and a little bit on my toes.
So I did a comparison, since both feet roughly looked the same, one foot got scrubbed, the other didn't.
notice on the heel there is some rough skin and dead skin on the bottom.

notice on this foot, the heel is smoother and there isn't as much dead skin around the area.

This took me about a two minutes to do, so it was really quick and simple. At first I thought it was going to be a project but that wasn't the case at all. But of course, you can take as long as you like until your feet are the desired smoothness you're looking for. 

But remember my feet aren't terrible, so I decided to give it a try on my girlfriend's feet, which if I'm being honest are more rough than mine and she actually has some dead skin she needed to get rid of.
Look at her big toe and examine the callus on her foot. Very present and understandably large since she's basically had these all of her life. 
Now take a look at her toe with the MIRCO-Pedi, yes this is a different foot but the callus around her toe has decreased and yes it became a little red due to usage. 
Again, notice the toe on the left looks a little more shaven down than the toe on the right.

I'm super in love with this product and I would surely recommend anyone whose is looking to purchase something like this to give it a shot. 

You can find the MICRO-Pedi *here* for $39.95.

Check it out and come back here to tell me what you think.

Until next time beauties.

Three BAD Habits I Have/Had (EW)

Today we're getting a little personal, who am I kidding, we're getting VERY personal. I mean, we all have bad habits right? (and if you don't tell me your secret.) So, I'm just going to share what mine are and maybe you can relate to them as well.

Truly I'm posting this because I am trying to get myself out of these bad habits. Some are gross and some just down right don't make any sense. Since it takes 21 days to get rid of a bad habit I am going to challenge myself to get rid of some if not all of these habits and you should too.

Here, we, GO!

1) Popping pimples/zits: Yup, right off the bat I'm taking it there. This is one of the disgusting habits I have to date. I love popping my pimples, my girlfriends pimples, friends, whoever lets me pop them, I will do it. It's something about feeling the actual pimple squeeze between my fingers that excites me. Sometimes I have to stop myself from asking people to pop their pimples/zits because I just know it's uncommon and most likely rude to do, but my goodness it's fun.

2) Leaving my towel EVERYWHERE: That isn't the bathroom. I don't know what it is with me but I NEED to walk out of the bathroom after a nice shower with my towel on, but I never like to bring it back to the bathroom to hang it up. It's always left behind a chair, on the bed, on top of clothes, just anywhere that isn't the bathroom. But of course a wet towel leave wet traces and because of that everything gets wet. You think I'll be annoyed by the wet clothes by now right? Nope.

3) Picking my nose: Listen, I don't know when this habit started, but it's here and kind of annoying, but not my fault. It's cold in NYC the air is dry around this time and my snot just turns into boogers, or something like that. Blah, blah it gets hard to breathe and suddenly I am looking at my fingers wondering if I got the biggest, fattest booger out of my right nostril. It's not all bad, but at least I don't eat them. Ah.

Anyway, these are my habits, what are yours? Share them with me down below and of course, help me get over these pleaseeeeeee.

Until next time.
