Ped Egg soft for the foot

Newfound study finds eggs can give you smooth and soft feet!
Well, not quite.
If you haven’t heard there is this new invention called the Ped Egg.
Now, just to clear the air, it’s not really an egg.
It’s a device that gets rid of the rough skin and calluses located on the foot, and it just happens to be shaped like an egg.
The unique shape of the Ped Egg is said to be helpful to its users because it fits in the palm of the hand. The Ped Egg is also said to give the user a pedicure that could, at one time, only be given at salons.
In the commercials they claim that the Ped Egg is able to leave the skin callus free. The commercials also claim that it will remove the rough skin.
The commercials show women and men with cracked and dry heels. Each man and woman obtains a Ped Egg and uses it.
After the first use, their feet are beautiful and healthy.
The women now can wear their strappy heels without being cautious about their cracked heels. The men can now roam around without their shoes and socks. These men and women show off their feet with pride.
Also in the commercial, they show a lady rubbing the Ped Egg along a balloon.
The point of this is to show that the Ped Egg is strong enough to get rid of the dry skin but also safe enough to not pop the balloon.
After watching the commercials, I became curious about this Ped Egg. So when the idea about doing a story for the Renegade Rip about the Ped Egg was presented, I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by.
After buying my handy-dandy Ped Egg for only $10.17 at Walgreens, I went home immediately so that I could try it out.
However, on my ride home, I began looking over the package, and I couldn’t help but notice that the front of the Ped Egg looks like a grater. Despite my skepticism about rubbing my foot with a cheese grater, I still decided to go through with the task.
So when I finally got home, I opened the package, put the egg together and read the directions carefully. I then took off my sock and rubbed the egg up and down my foot. Now after about two minutes, I felt my foot, and it felt the same. So, I proceeded to grate the bottom of my foot for five more minutes, still no difference, so I continued for another seven minutes and finally my foot felt exceptionally soft. So then I couldn’t just do one of my feet and not the other, so I egged the other foot. This stage of my at-home pedicure took 28 minutes.
Then in the package, the company put two emory board pads, and I couldn’t have a half done pedicure, so I rubbed my feet with what appeared to be a piece of chalkboard. I’m really not quite sure what the emory boards are supposed to do to my feet, so I’m not certain if it did its job or not.
After about a total of 35 minutes, my pedicure was finished, but I still had to complete one more stage in my Ped-Egg challenge.
I decided to blow up a balloon and rub it with my Ped Egg.
To make things more interesting, I decided to make a bet with my sister.
If the balloon popped, she had to give me $5. If the balloon didn’t pop, I had to give her $5. So I rubbed the balloon for about 15 seconds in the same manner that I rubbed my foot, and I’m ashamed to say this, but I owe my little sister $5.
I’m disappointed that I didn’t win that $5 from my sister, but I’m not disappointed to admit that maybe I was wrong about the Ped Egg. I thought that maybe the Ped Egg wasn’t what it was cracked up to be, but it is a great alternative to going to the salon and getting a pedicure. Even though I may never use my Ped Egg to remove the dry skin from my feet, I will not look at it as money wasted. I might use it as a cheese grater after sterilizing it, of course.
The Ped Egg is a great product for those who hate spending a lot of their money on feet. It’s cost efficient, and it does just what it claimed to do.
The egg has definitely come a long way from just being used in the kitchen.
