Spongeables Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer is a double-sided sponge designed to cleanse, exfoliate, massage and moisturize dry, rough skin on your feet. Infused with a blend of glycerin, olive oil, shea butter, tea tree extract, this foot buffer has a foam-release system with aromatherapy to deodorize and refresh tired feet.
The Foot Buffer comes in two scents , Lavender-Tea Tree Oil Aromatherapy and Citron-Eucalyptus Aromatherapy. They also come in different sizes, 5+ washes and 20+ washes. I tried the Lavender version in the smaller size (5+ washes).
The sponge has two sides, a soft side that cleanses and moisturizes, while a scruffy side massages and exfoliates rough skin. You first need to get the pedi-scrub completely wet to soften and release ingredients. Soap is built into the sponge which lathers up quickly when you wet the sponge. I find it very easy to hold and use and loved the lavender-tea tree scent that’s very refreshing.
While I liked that the white scruffy side of the sponge wasn’t too abrasive, it also meant that the buffing action wasn’t enough to smooth my rough heels the first time I used it. However, after about 2-3 days of daily use, my feet felt so much better and softer! However, for very rough, dry callused skin, I think you’ll probably have to use another product initially, like a foot file or pumice stone to slough away the callused areas.
Overall, I really liked Spongeables Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer. For less than $6 , it’s a great product for a DIY pedi as well as in between regular pedicures. It smells good, cleanses, exfoliates and moisturizes feet well and definitely makes my tootsies feel pampered! It’s also paraben-free and never tested on animals.
