The Clarisonic Pedi Has Arrived
Have a conversation about skincare with an esthetician, dermatologist, or editor, and the Clarisonic will eventually come up. The exfoliating face brush has a cult-like following (Jaime King, Kourtney Kardashian, and Minka Kelly are fans, to name a few) and has spurred more than a few look-alike brushes. A few years ago you might have scoffed at the idea of spending 200 bucks to replace your washcloth, but now it seems like everyone has a Clarisonic next to their sink. As of today, the brand is officially expanding that notion south of your ankles.
The Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation System ($199) is similar to the brand’s other models—the waterproof device oscillates to gently remove dead skin—but instead of a soft brush attachment, you’ll get a stainless-steel smoothing disk and buffing brush. The former to be used on dry feet and the latter on wet or dry skin. The set also comes with three products to remove and heal calluses and cracked skin: Pedi-Buff, a grainy scrub to use with the brush in the shower; Pedi-Balm, to hydrate post treatment; and Pedi-Boost, a powerful foot peel to use twice a week.
The Pedi might be a splurge, but it's a sound investment if it replaces your salon pedicures and, if the original is anything to go by, it won't be long until there are similar and less-expensive versions in stores. Luckily, you'll be able to try one out before purchasing: the brand is rolling the gadgets into spas soon.
We have a hunch the Pedi will spur a renaissance within the world of foot exfoliation—like the classic Clarisonic did to skincare—and it won't be long before one takes up space in your own shower.
