Readers' Corner: How Effective Is Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File and How-tos?

After sharing my in-depth initial review on the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File,  I was a bit nervous about the comments I'll receive: "Will people get turned off with my feet and not read my blog anymore?"  "Will I receive negative comments on why I even dared to post my before foot photo?"

Thankfully, you guys were amazing!  So forgiving and understanding if I may have to say!  I haven't received a single negative comment and even got overwhelming responses through email, text messages and comments both on blog and Instagram!  My sister and friends even messaged me to tell me they bought one after reading my post!  So thank you so much for the trust guys!

Now, to show my utmost appreciation, I will answer all Scholl Electronic Foot File related questions in this post!  Since obviously, a lot of you wanted to know more about the product and maybe have the same issues as I do so I would love to share more information as needed!  I understand how we all love to skip reading instructions so I'm doing this Q&A portion to help you guys understand more about the product I truly love, believe and use!

After personally using this product, I immediately shared this product to my sister-in-law and mother-in-law to try and both of them were amazed!  They told me they will definitely purchase their own Micralumina roller heads (for hygiene purpose) and borrow the handle (we live close by).  I don't mind because they used to go to a Foot Spa which is quite impossible nowadays with the crazy traffic!  

Here are some of the questions I would like to answer regarding the product:

How much is it and where to purchase?
I stated it over my previous post but I will state it again, the Scholl Electronic Foot File sells for Php1,685.00 (batteries included) and the Refill with 2 replacement roller heads costs Php550.00.  You can purchase them at selected Watsons stores.

Will I get the same result if I use a manual foot file?
I have used manual foot file most of my life, you may get the same result as I did on my previous review BUT not as immediate as using the Scholl Electronic foot file for the first time.

Can the roller head be cleaned or just the handle?
Both can be cleaned.  You have to be reminded though that the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File is not waterproof so to clean the roller head, you have to detach the head by pressing the eject button on the side and gently pull the roller away from the unit and finally, you may wash it with running water.

 Gently pull roller away from the unit.

Wash with water.

Let it dry naturally.

As for the body of the unit, clean it by wiping it using a damp cloth.

Dry both the roller head and the main unit with a clean dry cloth after.

Will it be effective even for my dad?  I want to give it to him on his birthday.
This particular question was taken from the comment section.  Yes, you can definitely give this as  gift to your loved ones especially your parents!  But, you have to keep in mind that precautionary measures are needed.  If your parents have a lot of medical issues (i.e. diabetic), it is safer to ask or check with the doctor.

As for my mom-in-law, she doesn't have blood circulation issues or diabetic issues so I gladly lend the product to her and she's loving the results!

The steps to use is quite simple to achieve beautiful, smooth feet even on first use!  And to prove it doesn't just work for me but for others, my mom-in-law gladly modeled for me in this post!  (Thanks mom!)

Step 1: Make sure the feet is clean and dry.

Step 2: Switch the electronic foot file on and roll on.

Step 3: Continue until feet feels smooth.  It is very important not to go beyond 3-4 seconds per area.  Move the product around the feet as much as possible.  For first time use, I highly suggest not to use it for too long!  It may be addictive to want to remove all the dead skin or callouses but be careful as it could be painful when overused!

Step 4: The packaging says "Wipe or rinse feet to remove excess dead skin particles." but I prefer to use a damp clean towel and wipe off dead skin.  The most important step is the follow up with a foot cream or even "oil" if you have extremely dry and flaky feet like me!  Wear socks and have a good night sleep!

Here you go!

Note: First time for my mom-in-law to use this.

My mom-in-law is blessed with gorgeous feet!  So the effect may not be as obvious as mine!  But encircled is the "obvious dry marks" which can't be removed naturally or when she takes a shower!  It was shown on the bottom photo how it looks softer and smoother after first use!

I hope you learn something from me and I hope this post helps especially if you are off to purchase your first Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi –Electronic Foot File!
