Foot care has been something I’ve been battling with since my middle school years. My feet are dry but my biggest problem are calluses around the balls of my feet and under my big toes. They need constant treatment so I have all these creams, pumice stones, foot files…. you name it and I’ve tried it. Foot files work great for rough feet but they don’t last long and you really have to work it for results. I swear it used to take me like 10 minutes per foot. So I was super glad when these awesome electronic foot files rolled out.
One is by Dr. Scholl’s and the other is Amope, both sent to me for review.

Shorter roller head
My feet are big so the first thing I questioned is if this would work for me, the roller head is sunken it seemed like the sides would get in the way of being able to glide around my feet easily. Those 2 things actually worked out well. The pedi was easy to use and I love how it catches the dead skin shavings (but not all of them). This roller head works better than the regular Amope one. The skin shavings are finer and it left my foot feeling soft, something that Amope didn’t do. The only drawback is that it isn’t as widely available as Amope and is the more expensive option in the long run. *It has been renamed to the Dreamwalk Pedi Express and has new packaging. I don’t think the product changed, it was probably renamed because they released a Dreamwalk line.*
The Dr. Scholl’s Express Pedi Foot Smoother is available at ULTA online, Walmart, CVS, Amazon.com, Target.com and Fred Meyer for $40-$50. Additional Dr. Scholl’s Express Pedi Foot Smoother 2 count refills ($15) are available separately.

Multiple Roller Heads (regular and extra coarse)
|Sensitive to pressure|
Everywhere I turn I see an Amope advertisement, coupon, or product in stores. It definitely rolled up on the block making a scene. The pros and cons pretty much says it all, it’s a solid device and great for anyone. The only thing I don’t like is the sensitivity to pressure, the roller stops when you press down “too hard” to avoid hurting your foot but it stops often (maybe because I’m heavy handed) and becomes an annoyance, I don’t have that problem with the Dr. Scholl’s.
I absolutely love their website! It’s full of tips and info for different foot problems.
The Amope Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File is $37-$50 at Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Amazon and Drugstore.com nationwide. Additional Amope Pedi Perfect Electronic Pedicure Foot File 2 count refills ($9-$15) are available separately.
Comes with one roller head
Best used on dry skin
Roller heads easily removed for cleaning
If you asked me to choose between Amope and Dr. Scholl’s I would have picked Dr. Scholl’s but that was before Amope released their extra coarse roller head about a month back. That roller does a better job at filing my feet. If you don’t get calluses or have trouble feet than I’d pick the Dr. Scholl’s Pedi Foot for you. But honestly it’s not that much better to where I’d say to totally pass on Amope. They are both great devices.
