NEW: Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi & Intense Foot Serum

When Scholl launched their Express Pedi machine in 2013 I got a little bit excited. Finally I could achieve smooth and pretty feet at home, rather than having to traipse to a pedicurist once a month to sort out my cracked heels. The handy gadget has been by my side ever since, coming out to play pre-shower every week or two to help remove unsightly dry skin from my feet and minimise embarrassing cracked heels. Although I love the machine and can’t recommend it enough, it can get a little messy… The skin you remove can build up to leave the handheld device covered in foot dust, which is about a gross as it sounds. However, the Scholl Express Pedi ‘take two’ has all of the benefits of the first version with added practicality. Paired with Scholl’s new and innovative Foot Serum, you’ll have your tootsies Summer ready in no time at all.

The new design features an ergonomic handle that is much lighter and more comfortable to use, especially when it takes around five minutes to fully buff each foot. The file is a lot more abrasive than the original (which is smooth to the touch,) ensuring it’s even more effective at buffing away dry and dead skin from the foot’s surface. However, it’s still comfortable to use and extremely hard to buff away too much skin – something that is as bad as having too much. The main point of difference for me is that there’s a gap between the file and the pedi machine, ensuring the skin that’s removed is free to fall directly onto a towel or into the loo (I file my feet over the toilet bowl so there’s no mess!) Unlike the previous version, which had a tendency to get a little jammed up with flaky skin, this ensures the device is clean and free from residue.

I love the Scholl Express Pedi machines and truly believe they’re a great investment buy – half of the reason I have a pedicurist on speed dial is to help with my dry skin, but with these gadgets I barely need her help at all. Although this is £39.99, it’s the equivalent of two emergency foot spa sessions… Something that starts to make sense when you break it down! You can even nab this in Boots with a £10.00 saving currently, making it almost a steal at £29.99.

In addition to this new extension, Scholl have launched a range of foot care products that include a BB Cream, Night Treatment and this Velvet Smooth Intense Serum which provides an intense shot of hydration. Containing hyaluronic acid and green caviar, the formula is really light and can be easily massaged into even the hardest of heels. The instant cooling effect helps to soothe feet and leave them feeling light after a hard day, while the serum absorbs quickly so you don’t have to hop around for ages with sticky feet. You can instantly see the impact it has too, providing feet with a smooth quality that looks and feels great. This is great to apply after a long day walking, or before bed so you can get the full benefit of hydration.

Scholl are really pushing the boundaries of foot care and using inspiration from other areas of the beauty market to launch some truly innovative products. I can really appreciate how they treat feet the same way that other brands treat the face, putting as much care and attention into their products as a new anti-ageing face cream. If you’re concerned about your feet or just want to get them looking tip top in time for the warmer months, then definitely invest in some of Scholl’s handy new products.

The Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi is available from Boots priced £39.99 (currently on offer for £29.99) and the Intense Serum is £6.99 (currently on offer for £5.24.)

    I've got the orginal and as much as I love it, just like you I find it a bit of a messy process! This one sounds fab and so does the lotion, I have terribly dry feet so I will definitely be investing! CharlotteEver In May

    Ooh I might get this… My body is generally normal but my feet are prone to dryness and If I don't take care of them then they get sore and cracked, the problem runs in my family too. The only cream that has done anything for my feet is Flexitol heel balm/cream. It's really thick but after a week of using it and night and slapping on some sexy moisturising socks my feet are really smooth and 99% crack free.. but I'm fan of gadgets and this look good! I had one of those pedi pod things, that is cheese grater on the feet and is really awful!

    I'd love to try this and would probably buy one if they had a money back guarantee – yes, my feet are that bad!! I have tried everything to get rid of my dry skin and the only thing I've ever found to work is one of those blades that slice off the dry skin alongside twice a day moisturisation. I have almost £30 of Boots Advantage Card points, so very tempted…Laura x | Life and Lipstick

    I have just purchased this and I suffer really bad with dry and cracked skin on my feet. I too used the blade but it's not good for your feet as it's tends to build up more hard skin. The scholl express pedi is amazing, I have used it twice along with the serum and my feet are so soft and no cracks. I definitely recommend this product.
