First things first, though, my normal pedi routine consists of using this Revlon Callus Remover. It seriously looks like a metal hurt contraption. And then, I finish off my lazy-person routine with the Rocky Mountain Foot Butter and moisturizing socks (maybe.)
With the "Julep" system, you roll on the prep (contains super exfoliating AHAs and chamomile extract) and wait 2-3 minutes for it to soften and exfoliate your heel. You do not have to soak your feet beforehand. Then you file your heels like your life depended on it. The file that Julep sells did not outlast the pedicure session. It was a little on the cheap side and the water seemed to break down the glue that held the "sanding paper" piece on. Yes, we shall stick with that story - I refuse to believe that it was my heel that broke the file. :P You rinse your feet and then you apply the creme.
The cheap foot file aside, my heels did feel really nice and smooth at the end of the session. The prep roll on was a little bit of a weird experience for me - just because I wasn't used to it. I couldn't really tell how much product I was supposed apply, and it was often hard to tell if any had actually rolled on (especially if your feet are already wet). The creme had a nice foot creamy- coconutty smell, not too thick and absorbed quite nicely.
I probably wouldn't do this treatment often, as I usually don't have the time for it, but it was nice to kind of pamper myself. Would you try this out? What is your tried and true pedicure routine?
