I love foot care products, so I knew that the new Clarisonic Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation system would be right up my alley. The set includes the pedi device and two brush heads, plus three foot care products: a scrub, foot cream, and a renewing peel.
I have had this stuff for a couple of weeks now, and I wanted to make sure I had gotten some use from the whole kit before I wrote a review. So what do I think of everything? And is it worth the $199 price tag?
L to R: Pedi Device with the Pedi Smoothing Disc, Pedi Wet Dry Buffing Brush Head
The pedi system comes with two heads: the Pedi Smoothing Disc and the Pedi Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head.The Smoothing Disc gets used twice a week (and this brush must not get wet). The Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head can be used everyday on wet or dry feet. I found that the Wet/Dry brush was the easiest and most convenient to use in the shower with the scrub included in the kit. I use the Smoothing Disc on dry feet with no products.
L to R: Pedi-Buff Sonic Foot Smoothing Treatment ($27), Pedi-Balm Sonic Foot Softening Treatment ($27), Pedi-Boost Sonic Foot Renewing Peel ($32)
Surprisingly the foot care products that were included are actually pretty good. The only product that I was not impressed with is the Pedi-Balm Sonic Foot Softening Treatment, which is a foot cream. I still prefer to use a body butter from The Body Shop as my foot cream.
The Pedi-Buff Foot Smoothing Treatment is a really great scrub. The granules a not too small, but not too large either. And they don’t break down as quickly as some other scrubs I have used in the past. The Pedi-Boost Sonic Foot Renewing Peel is also very good. The product reminds me of a thick oil, and when I looked on the Clarisonic website, it says that the peel contains lactic and glycolic acid. I use about two drops per foot and I have a size 6 to 6.5 US shoe size, for anyone looking to compare how quickly they may go through this product. It is instructed to only use the Renewing Peel twice a week.
You can purchase the three foot care products separately when you run out. But, out of the two I actually like, I would most likely repurchase the Pedi-Buff Sonic Foot Smoothing Treatment. I do like the Pedi-Boost Sonic Foot Renewing Peel, but I don’t think that would be something I would repurchase regularly.
Overall, I think the Pedi Foot system is okay. My feet are not as dry when I use the pedi device. But, I need to make sure I keep up with everything, otherwise they get dry all over again. I wish the products had better lasting power, where I could use this every other day instead off everyday.
However, at $199, I don’t think it’s completely worth it. My main criticism is that the battery does not last long. I can get just a couple of uses out of the device before it dies on me, which is really annoying. With the high price tag, I would have expected the battery life to be much better. Also, I think there should be an option to just buy the device and brush heads separately from the products.
Availability: Clarisonic (& other beauty retailers), $199.
