A couple of years back I bought a Ped Egg because it promised to help the skin on my heels and feet. The purpose of the product is to remove dead skin from the heels as well as painful calluses on the bottom of the feet. It does this with a unique microfiling system that is built right into the utensil.
I loved it a lot and recommended it to my daughter. However, unlike me, she was hesitant to pay the $9.99 price tag.
Recently I discovered there is an alternative product to Ped Egg. It is called the Blissful Feet Pod. It works along the same lines as Ped Egg but for the obvious non-egg shaped formulation. Blissful Feet is round like a ball. I bought one for my daughter and one for myself.
Like Ped Egg,Blissful Feet makes some serious claims. First the product claims to be easy to use. Secondly, it promises to be economical. Next, it says it will transform your feet from rough to soft within minutes. Then, it promises to be 100% safe and painless. Finally, it promises to collect all the filings inside the pod, thereby negating a messy cleanup.
The question is: Does it live up to these claims? Let’s take a look and see.
Claim #1. Blissful Feet is simple to use. First you attach the filing cover to the collection pod. Next, press the file against the area of skin to be filed. Using a slow back and forth motion, gently file the dead skin away. Once you are finished, just empty the filing from the collection pod, reattach the file top and store. Blissful Feet receives 5 stars for doing the job it claims to do.
Claim #2. Blissful Feet sells for $1 at Dollar Tree. Peg Egg sells for $9.99. That proves which product is the better bargain. Blissful Feet earns 5 stars.
Claim #3. Blissful Feet does indeed transform your feet. By removing the surface layers of dead skin, which is often cracked and ugly to look at, Blissful Feet uncovers the smoother, softer skin underneath. Plus getting rid of the cracks and scaly white skin improves the skin’s appearance immensely.
I have not tried Blissful Feet on calluses. However, since it functions in the same way as Peg Egg, I am confident it will work in the same manner. That would mean both products could conceivably remove at least a part of the callous to also make skin more comfortable. Blissful Feet 5 stars for turning dry, ugly feet into soft, smooth beautiful ones.
Claim #4. Blissful Feel is just as safe and painless as Ped Egg is. However, here in lies the rub. If the product is used to file too deeply, it can cut into new skin and cause a mild to moderate irritation. The trick is to use it to remove only the outer dry skin layer. Therefore, Blissful Feet earns only 4 stars on this claim.
Claim #5. Like Ped Egg, Blissful Feet collects all of the filings of dead skin within its handy dandy pod. That equates to no muss and no fuss. Blissful Feet gets a full 5 stars on this claim.
In addition to its file and pod, Blissful Feet also provides two emery pads for fine buffing. That means you get everything you would get with Ped Egg at one-tenth the cost.
The Blissful Feet pod should be kept clean. Wash it in semi-hot soapy water. Then dry and store. The emery pads; however, should not be washed and must be kept in a dry location.
I find myself using Blissful Feet more often than Ped Egg because its round ball styling fits easier into my small hands. However, both products are neck and neck when it comes to fulfilling claims and living up the “as seen on TV” hype.
That being the case, why would anyone want to spend an extra $9 to get a product that doesn’t work any better than Blissful Feet? I wouldn’t and won’t in the future.
