I bought this about a month ago to prepare my feet ready for the summer. I bought this in Tesco where is cost me £3.00 for a 75ml tube.
The scrub promises to smooth away dead skin fast. It contains fruit AHA's which are known to activate skin cell renewal. It also contains pumice to remove hard skin. The scrub is also dermatologically tested.
To use this scrub you apply it to clean dry feet, I find it is most effective if you have washed your feet an hour of so before as otherwise your skin is too soft and it isn't as effective. You then need to massage into your feet in circular motions before rinsing off. It is recommended for best results that you use this scrub 2-3 times a week.
The scrub has a fruity smell. It comes out of the tube as a cream and you can see tiny bits of pumice throughout. When you apply it to the skin it spreads easily. The grains of pumice are really fine and there are lots of them. You can feel it scrub away the dead skin without it being too harsh or abrasive.
My feet have spend the winter shoved in Ugg boots in really thick socks so they were horrendous. I had a build up of dry hard skin on the balls of my feet and the heels. I thought it would take a lot of scrubbing with a pumice stone which I find really time consuming! However after using this I noticed an instant difference in the condition of my feet. They were a lot smoother and softer. I followed using this with Scholl foot cream. Within a few days my feet were really smooth, I now use this every few days to prevent a build up of dry skin.
I would recommend this to anyone who has scary feet like me! It makes them soft and smooth and ready for flip-flops and sandals.

I first discovered this product after it was recommended and rated highly on a forum which i frequently visit. Of course me being the product junkie which i am i couldn't resist picking up a tube when i was next in a Boots store, infact in all honesty my sole intention of visiting Boots was to buy the Scholl Rough Skin Remover..... such a sucker for a rated review ;).
I'm happy to announce that my little trip was definitely worth it and the product didn't disappoint.
The product aims to smooth away rough and dry skin, the tube is of a generous size with the packaging simple yet appealing. The texture of the exfoliant is quite thick therefore you only need to apply a small amount to the feet as a little really does go a long way.
The smell is pleasant, which of course is an added bonus.
I applied the product to clean dry feet. Once applied i massaged the cream into my feet in circular motions, whilst doing this you can feel the little exfoliant grainy bits and the product slightly changes it's texture into a more hardened feel. It feels slightly scratchy to the skin, not in any way discomforting though, infact i found it quite satisfying seeing the little shavings of product fall from the feet. I'd recommend putting a towel under your feet or doing this just before you get in the shower as it can be quite messy.
Once finished you then simply rinse. For best results it's recommended that you use the product 2-3 times per week. Even after the first usage i could tell a difference with my feet, they felt smoother and the skin had a more glowy look to them. Although the more often i used the product then the better results i saw as my feet are now rough skin free, a huge thumbs up from me.
I aim to use this a few times a week. Firstly i use my microplane foot file, then use the Scholl rough skin remover, rinse and then apply a generous amount of flexitol foot moisturiser to my feet. Lastly i pop on a pair of cotton socks overnight which then reveals smooth and soft feet in the morning.

As summer (hopefully) approaches, it's time to break your feet out of their winter socks and boots and get them into those pretty sandals and flip-flops. But sometimes a little bit of work is needed first, as those neglected heels and toes need a little TLC before being fit for the public eye!
The great thing about this grainy foot scrub is that you can use it on dry feet and then rinse it off. So I can stand in the shower and give my feet a good scrub before standing under the water and letting the product rinse away. I think that using the product on dry skin really means the scrubbing action is a lot more effective as it isn't diluted with water. It's extremely easy to use, just give feet a good old rub with the product for 20-30 seconds. And a little goes a long way, so the small tube will last a good while, depending how often you use it.
This product really does work wonders on dry feet, and the granules do their bit to help soften up heels for the summer. But you do have to use the product regularly - and I'd also recommend slapping on lots of moisturiser and a good pair of socks overnight for an even deeper treatment!
When I first bought Scholl Rough Skin remover I was on my last attempt at curing my horribly dry and flaky feet. I had tried what felt like millions of foot care products, so when I went looking for another 'cure', I thought i'd use a tried and trusted name, but was still very dubious and expected no miracles.
On application it smelt nice and pleasant, and I was very happy with the clay-like consitancy and how the little scrubbers seemed very substantial and felt like they were actually doing something but without ripping your foot off. It felt more like a tickling sensation.
I applied the scrub to my feet with circular moments, using very little as it spreads out well and there were enough scrubbers per blob to keep it going for a while. It smelt lovely throughout and I could immediately see an improvement in the look of my feet. I then washed it off as directed, and was expecially impressed with the look and feel of my foot.
It states on the very simple matte while bottle, that you should use one or twice a week, however for the first week I used it once a day, then twice a week after that.
I have to say that I can't ever remember having nicer looking and feeling feet, which feels like a miracle to me. I am so happy I found this scrub, and would definatly reccommend this to anyone!
Back in June when we had some sunny weather and the sandals made their first appearance of the year, I began to notice I had unsightly rough skin around my heels and on the sides of my toes. I don't usually use any creams on my feet but I hated to see my feet looking so tired and uncared for so I had a look around for a good foot scrub. I have used Scholl products many times before and know they are a trusted brand so when I spotted this rough skin remover I didn't hesitate to buy it.
The product comes in a small white tube containing 75ml which is plenty to last you a long time; a little goes a VERY long way! On the back of the tube it suggests applying to clean, dry feet and rubbing in circular motions which feels lovely as the cream contains pumice grains to blitz all the dead skin on your feet. Once you've done this, rinse. I tend to use it in the shower as it is the quickest, most convenient way I have found to use it and it would be quite messy otherwise as it's used on your feet making walking troublesome! The info on the back of the tube also suggests using it 2 or 3 times a week and as it is quite abrasive I think this is sensible advice.
After I had used it for the first time, my feet felt smoother and looked much softer and smoother which was the effect I had hoped for; no more white, chalky heels and toes! I then used the Scholl Deep Moisturising Cream (check out my review of that too!) to complete the treatment.
I use the Rough Skin Remover a couple of times a week when in the shower just to keep my tootsies happy and I have been more than satisfied with the results. If you often wear sandals or sling-backs and your heels get rough, white or cracked, give it a go and you should see results.
I do a lot of walking in my day to day to life and this causes me to have hard, dry skin on my feet which if I don't keep in check can cause me to be in agony not to mention looking rather unsightly. Over the years I have tried many foot care products but I always come back to Scholl Rough Skin remover as I find to be the absolute best.
It is basically a foot scrub which contains a specialised combination of fruit AHA's and natural pumice. Unlike normal scrubs you apply it to dry skin. You massage the scrub into clean, dry feet and after a few seconds you can feel and see it working. It just seems to lift any dead skin and it just sort of rolls off as you work the product in. It does make a hell of a mess with all the skin ending up all over the place so you need to do it over the bath. You then rinse your feet and voila! Beautiful soft and smooth feet. I usually follow with whichever foot cream I happen to be using afterwards.
I really can't recommend this product highly enough. It has to be tried to be believed really. And at around £2.69 a tube it is an absolute bargain. Brilliant.
A couple of weeks ago, I found myself mildly annoyed with the dry and unpleasant feeling on the underside of my feet. My feet felt as if they had stepped into a tub of chalk dust and no washing could remove that feeling. I consequently decided that it was just about time to spend my Boots points and find a product that would make my feet feel normal again.
As usual when I walk through Boots, I completely forgot what I came in to purchase, but on my way to the check-out counter I spotted a stand with Scholl products. Two products in particular caught my attention the Rough Skin Remover and the Deep Moisturising Cream.
Scholls Rough Skin Remover comes in a gold, white and see-through stand-up bottle and contains 75ml of product. Through the see-through part you can see what the product looks like. It is an off-white, ice-cream colour containing little black grains which remind me of the bits of vanilla pod that you might find in some vanilla ice creams or in Black & Greens organic chocolate.
The product promises to exfoliate, smooth and renew the skin of your feet. It is a formula that apparently has been developed in order to serve the unique characteristics of the skin of your feet. It contains fruit AHAs and natural pumice to remove rough and hard skin.
The product is to be applied to the clean, dry skin of your feet and massaged over the feet in a circular motion. Afterwards you are supposed to rinse your feet.
It is recommended to use the product 2-3 times a week and to follow the procedure up with an application of Scholl Deep Moisturising Cream.
When I first opened the tube, I instantly realised that this product did not have much of a smell to it. The scent is very light and fresh reminding me of the smell of wet sand mixed with lemon, vanilla and floral undertones.
This is when I first faced a dilemma, as the tube does not explain exactly what is meant by massaging the product over the foot. Does this mean the whole foot?
Eventually I extracted a pea-sized amount of product from the tube and began massaging it on to the soles of my feet, the underside of my toes and my heel. The product is like a paste and feels rough and grainy on the soles, just like when walking on a beach.
Immediately I realised that it had been a massive mistake to apply the product to my feet while sitting on my living room sofa, as the product is very messy indeed. While rubbing it, the rough skin removed from your feet combines with the product to form little strands, about the length of rice corns. These then quickly fall from your feet, leaving behind a shower of these little strands to be hoovered up.
I also soon noticed that a pea sized amount of the product is not sufficient to cover a whole foot a second application will be necessary.
Once most of the skin strands have fallen of your feet, it is time to rinse them with water. The product washes off really easily. And once you have dried your feet, you will be in for a pleasant surprise: Your feet do indeed feel a lot smoother than before.
I tend to use the product as directed, 2-3 times a week, and I always follow up with the Deep Moisturising Cream. I have been using the product for four weeks now and definitely can see an improvement in the condition of my feet.
One minor annoyance is that as you keep using the Rough Skin Remover, part of the paste dries on the opening area and makes it harder to close the tube. I therefore suggest that you remove any excess prior to closing the tube each time.
One tube will last you about 10-15 applications, depending on how much you choose to apply.
***Price and availability***
One tube will set you back about £4.25. I have seen it at Boots only so far, but I am sure you would get it at other chemists as well.
I am quite fond of this product, as it did assist me in getting rid of a substantial amount of the rough skin under my feet, but I am not sure that I would keep using it on a permanent basis being that it is rather pricey. Id probably buy it if it was on a special offer, as I think a reasonable purchase price would be about £3 a tube.
As my hubby works on a building site, he is on his feet all day. Add to this thick socks and heavy work-boots, you can imagine what state his feet are in. Believe me it?s not a pretty sight, and painful? Oh, yes. We?re both in constant agony. He suffers from the constant pain of rough, dry skin and I am the poor wife who has to lie next to him in bed while he rubs his feet against my legs in the middle of the night. I might as well be in bed with a coil of barbed wire, so after yet another restless night?s sleep I hit the shops next day desperate for a solution. While in Tesco, I headed straight for the footcare department and I was boogle-eyed at how many products there were all promising to do the same thing. I decided to go for Scholl?s Rough Skin Remover. Scholl are a well-known footcare specialist dealing with all manner of foot products to make them ultra-soft and more comfortable for the wearer. Being a name I have already come to know and trust, I realised that the decision had already been made for me. The 75ml tube is quite attractive to look at. There is a slash of gold across the top half of the tube with ?Rough Skin Remover? written in bold white lettering. Just above this is the recognisable Scholl logo in bright blue. Exfoliate, Smooth and Renew are the 3 all-important words on the package and this is Scholl?s promise. And believe me this is one product that lives up to its promise. The foot treatment comes in a 75ml tube costing £2.59. It is widely available in most supermarkets and chemists, but I would advise you to shop around for it. I went into Boots first and noticed they had it for sale for over a pound more than Tesco. Here it cost a massive £3.75, so I would watch and not get caught out. On opening the tube I was quite surprised at the smell. Here was I expecting a bland, wet sand smell, but instead my nostrils were met with the gorgeous aroma of fruitiness, almost peachy. This will be the added fruit AH
A?s then. These along with the miniscule particles of natural pumice and paraffin work together into sloughing away the hard dry skin, leaving soft, smooth feet. The rough skin remover is very thick and grainy. When rubbed onto the feet in circular movements you can feel the difference almost immediately. It is recommended that you use this product at least 2 or 3 times a week to achieve best results. My husband has used this for only 2 weeks now and already there is a marked improvement in his feet?s appearance and feel. He is no longer in pain after standing all day and they look and feel smooth. It is also suggested to follow up the treatment with other foot products by Scholl to get better results. I have found that just using a cheap moisturising lotion afterwards does the job just as well. I have found with this product that a little goes a long way. You simply squeeze a small amount onto your hand, apply it to the soles of your feet and rub away. It is quite a pleasant feeling, no pain is felt, just a scratchy sensation as the grains of pumice slough away the dead skin. I found myself using this just last week. Although my feet are in quite good condition, I felt that they did require just a little bit of attention after I spent most of the summer in bare-feet. After using just twice, my feet are back in tip-top condition and ready for running after my two children once again.
