Pros: Impressive results - smooth skin Good quality micro-grain roller
Cons: Not rechargeable (uses 2 AA batteries) Cheap plastic build Does not come with a cleaning brush
Other Thoughts: My feet get pretty dry this time of year; in the month of February during the cold winter season. Applying lotion helps, but never really does the job. So I gave Dr. Scholl's Foot File a try. The results were quite impressive. The white, powdery dust falling from my foot was kinda gross, but the smooth skin that result was worth it. Note that, because my feet were so bad, it took me several sittings before I got down to that smooth skin.
The manufacturer warns not to use the device more than 20 minutes at a time. I agree with this. I would also add not to use the device more than once a day; I tried it twice on the same day and my feet turned a little red and became a bit sensitive. So it's best to put some time between applications.
My wife's feet, on the other hand (or the other foot, that is), are well taken care of. She uses Pumice Stones, Avon foot lotion, and other foot files. Her feet are fairly smooth to begin with. That said, when she used the device she also met with impressive results. Amazingly, her feet produced that dry powdery dust like mine, and when she was done, she said her feet never felt so good. Ever since she has been addicted to using the Dr. Scholl's Foot File.
Now, here's the negative part. The device does not come with a built-in rechargeable battery. This seems like it should be a fairly standard feature in today's market. Instead, you must feed it 2 AA batteries. Also, the plastic build of the device reminds me of dollar store quality. For a retail cost of $39.99, one would expect both a charger and a better build.
That said, the micro-grain roller is the jewel of the device. It does the job and it does it really well. Removing the roller is easy, which makes cleaning a simple task. I recommend cleaning after every use as dry sky builds up on the roller. The manufacturer recommends using a bristle brush, but unfortunately does not include one (another feature I think should come standard). Thankfully, I had an extra brush from my beard trimming kit that did the job, and using a small handheld broom was best for getting the initial dry skin off the device itself.
Supposedly the roller lasts anywhere between 60 and 90 days, and a replacement pack of two costs around $15. Overall, I'm happy with the success I met by using the Dr. Scholl's Foot File, even if it is a bit lacking in features.

Pros: I've had these for 5 years already, I initially bought it for a bikini line trimmer but this is amazing for trimming all the hair, it's so much better than shaving( i used to get horrible razor burn). It takes a few tries to get used to it but once you master it you'll love it. I went through two of these just because the first one's retractable razor stopped working, but that may just be from me not taking proper care of it, but nonetheless it's worth it for 25 dollars, i'm just come careful with my new one.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this to any girl and I've already had a bunch of my friends buy it and they all love it.

Pros: Works really well dry. No cuts, pulling, pain, or anything like that. This is my first electric shaver and I am super happy with it. I have it in the shower and it always accidentally falls. I have probably dropped it about 6 times and it still works like new, when it falls, its so hard that all the parts come apart BUT DOES NOT BREAK! its pretty amazing, very well manufactured product.
Cons: Does not work to great when wet. Have to use it slowly to get a good shave.
