Find of the Month: MICRO Pedi


I’m rubbing together my oh-so-soft soles at the moment, after a tango with the MICRO Pedi – a spa treatment in a standalone tool. If you’re tired of shelling out quality coin for a spa treatment every few weeks, or conversely, you never hit the spa but suffer from dry, cracked, or calloused feet – this may be your saving grace (and a pretty fab gift idea to boot).

Here’s the scoop on this handy gadget. You pop in two batteries and select an exfoliating roller – whether your skin is coarse or super coarse. Then you simply turn it on and roll it over your skin for a few seconds at a time. Presto, be prepared to be dazzled (or perhaps a little disgusted) as fluffy flakes of dead skin are immediately eviscerated from your heels, toes, and soles. Literally, you can have ridiculously smooth feet in under 30 seconds per foot.

Of course, while I’ve broken it down to be painfully simple, you’ve probably got some legitimate questions. Like – does it hurt? Nope, not one bit (as long as you follow in the instructions mind you, and don’t shave down your epidermis). Compared to something like a rough pumice stone, it’s actually remarkably painless, particularly when you factor in the ridiculously short time it takes to work its magic. Plus the shape of it makes it pretty easy to hit all the curves and crags in your feet. You might also be wondering, does it make a mess? Again, no. While I was being dramatic about your skin shavings above, it actually collects neatly onto the device itself, which is washable for easy clean-up. Finally if you’re wondering whether it’s reusable – of course! In fact it’s recommended you use it on a weekly basis to maintain your skin. Not only can you use the MICRO Pedi multiple times, you can even buy replacement rollers for it to keep your feet looking fresh year-round.

So who is the MICRO Pedi for? How about your sister or best friend that spends oodles of her hard-earned cash on pedicures, and could do for an at-home spa experience? Or your hardworking mom (or dad) that could use a little polish on their feet? Or your bridesmaids for your destination wedding, because god knows we all take less care of our tootsies when the winter rolls in and they’re (mostly) bundled up. But that’s no excuse kids! Never forget – an excursion to the pool, formal event, or foot massage is just a sock or stocking away.

Final questions? Like say, how to buy it and how much does it cost? The MICRO Pedi retails for $39.95, easily putting it in the price range perfect for gifting your friend, sibling, or aunt without breaking the bank. You can buy it online at micropedi.ca, in-person at Shopper’s Drug Mart, or call 1-888-374-0081 to snag a few of ’em for your holiday shopping list. As a fun bonus, be sure to toss in a foot moisturizer so she can preserve her newly buttery-soft skin, and a fun nail polish in her favourite shade.

I brought up bridesmaids earlier for a reason. Imagine how much fun it’d be to gather your gal pals to have an at-home spa day complete with face masks, cucumber water, and MICRO Pedi-aided pedicures. If that sounds like a slice of self-treatment heaven, you could be indulging sooner than you think: I’m giving away a gift basket valued at $300 featuring MICRO Pedis for you and your friends, and Essie nail polishes to top off your look. Here’s how to enter to win:

1) Leave a comment by December 31st with who you’d share your prize package with (if you were the winner of course!)

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around January 1st to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

I love my mom – her feet deserve this more than anyone else I can think of, even me. You know how they say “walk a mile in her shoes”? I couldn’t walk a day in my own mom’s shoes.
