I have had rough dry cracked feet most of my life. I do everything I can to soften them but nothing last forever. I've used the foot peels and lotion and they look pretty good for a little while but it doesn't take long for the roughness to come back. This is when this foot file and callus remover come into play. It helps to keep your feet soft and smooth in between treatments. It also makes a great gift that I plan on giving this Christmas. I know I love mine.
