Baby soft feet for Momma


I'll admit to a baby foot fetish; those little toes are just so freakin' cute that it's all I can do to keep from trying to eat up Buttercup's at any chance I get.


Kid feet? Also cute.


But I am one of those people who can't really stand adult feet. My own, in particular. And since mine have been in dire need of a pedicure since about my fifth month of pregnancy, you can only imagine why I was really too embarrased to hand my nasty feet over to some stranger to slough off all the dead skin and calluses.


(Don't worry, I will spare you the horror of a foot photo. I like you all too much.)


So when I heard about the Microplane Foot File, I was hopeful but not banking on going from nasty-rough mommy feet to pretty-soft mommy feet in any reasonable amount of time. Sure, the product information pretty much gaurantees a noticable difference in just one use, but I have tried other products (can you say "as seen on TV"?) and have been sorely dissapointed.


But this thing? It works. In just one shameful-hiding-in-the-bathroom session, I scraped off a year's worth of nasty and found the feet I used to like.


I'd go into more details, but honestly, it's kind of gross. But with results like this with the surgical grade stainless steel blade? I'll gladly continue to use the Microplane Foot File on a regular basis and never have to bother with tipping some poor schmo for having to touch my feet again.

So-who else wants to "pretty-cize" their nasty feet? If you want to enter for a chance at your own Microplane Foot File in sage, visit their web site and leave me a berrie (read: comment) telling me what other product catches your interest. The contest ends at midnight (EST) on July 24 and I will post one randomly selected winner's name to PRIZEYWinners.


Oh, and good luck to you, and your feet!

Wow - great contest - anything to smooth out my feetsies!!! I also dig their automatic slicer - it looked pretty cool!!

Liz Casstro said...

Sounds scary to use something on your feet made by a company who makes great knives...but i could always use a great knife too:)

Audrey said...

I immediately went to their kitchen section. I'll take a cookbook and red apron :)

Rachel D. said...

I totally need this for my feet! Mine sound just like yours did. I also think their cut resistant glove looks cool.

Joni said...

That would be awesome! Like you, my feet were great until I was pregnant with my first. 3 kids later....let's just say my feet would thank you! I also love their Home Series Gift Set 2. A good grater is hard to find! Thanks for the giveaway!

Andrea said...

I like the zester!! I don't have one and it looks great.

Ashley said...

I could definiately use the Cut Resistant Glove. It is a sad story when I try and use a knife.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Steph said...

This would be wonderful. I have the worse feet.

Jane said...

I like the sandal prep gift set. I definitely need that! I also like their sea-salt grater. I agree that it is kind of a weird mix of products - knives, drill bits, and pedicure supplies!

Alice H said...

The four sided box grater looks cool too - great site. Thanks for the giveaway! afdr3d@umkc.edu

mjenningsdesigns said...

Well this is totally what I want (and need) however I love cookbooks and apron's too. I can always use a new apron so that would be my "other pick". Thanks for the giveaway!

Preppy Mommy said...

It must be said that the microplane products are very good but given the choice between a woodplane and a foot spa thingy,I'll go with the feet. However, a woodplane might work better on my feet. (mom of 3 who wears flip flops all the time, you get the picture.)
Thanks!

Lilith Silvermane said...

Girl Friend Gift Set w/ Paddle & Spa Socks would be great. I could get a few of my girlfriends over, my daughter and we can sit around, sipping wine and making our feet pretty! Perhaps for next Spring I'll have a spa day!!

Chocolate covered strawberries and a gift set! Can't beat that huh?

seeryusfam@msn.com said...

Oh, I hate my feet!! They are so dry and yucky! I like the fact that it won't mess up your skin...I've tried other products and they just don't make the grade. I love to hear about something that really works!

The other product that caught my eye was the Sea Salt Shaver. I love sea salt, and this would be oh so handy dandy!

( without socks )!!!!! Many thanks, Cindi

Rachel C. said...

Their graters look really nice, and I would especially enjoy having one of those Cut Resistant Gloves so that I don't grate my hand...which I've definitely done before. Ouch! Thanks so much!

Channah said...

I've had my eye on their classic 3 piece set for a while. I keep asking for it for every gift occasion, but no one gets me anything for the kitchen. http://us.microplane.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=161

Kimberly said...

I don't even want to look at my feet anymore. Ugh! I can only imagine. I guess I really need something like this. LOL!

I'd love to try the Microplane Hand Held Adjustable Slicer with Food Holder. That would help making salads and veggies for the kids so much easier. We also need knives but I really didn't see anything there. It's a cool site though.

Thank you for the great giveaway!

Mrs. Csirke said...

I really NEED one of these feet shavers! I checked out their site, and their sea salt shaver looks really interesting (especially with the himilayan salt). I would love to try that out too.

This is SO meant for my feet! My poor tootsies are feeling very neglected these days and need some love in a very bad way. I love that this has the "skin receptacle cap" on it - much better than the other tools without them (ewww). Love that their site has microplanes for everything - I have been trying to find these things for the kitchen everywhere but only came up with the bigger graters - this is great - thanks!

Hi there! I too have a bit of a foot fetish and love to take the time to make my feet look pretty! I think the Microplane Foot File will help me to maintain my feet because right now they are in a pretty good state, as long as I keep up with the "maintenance"! Another product that looks great from their website is the Microplane Foot Buffer. I think if you use this in conjunction with the Microplant Foot File you are going to be your own Pedicure Artist, LOL! Thank you for introducing the foot file to us and offering this terrific giveaway to all of us foot fetish people!
