Revlon Pediprep Foot Spa
A relaxing bubbling massage foot spa.
Are you missing those relaxing days at the wellness centre? Maybe a lavish foot massage? When going to an actual spa is inconvenient, the Revlon Pediprep could be the perfect substitute. This home foot spa boasts plenty of functions and accessories designed to soothe your sore feet and help you have a perfect pedicure even when you can’t see your aesthetician.
Wondering if it’s really worth the hype – and your money? Find it out in our Revlon Pediprep foot spa review below.
+ The Good
Several Treatment Options
Revlon isn’t the first brand to launch a foot spa on the market, but it does stand out from the crowd. Although the Pediprep isn’t the most feature-packed, the brand managed to cram loads of treatment options while maintaining an affordable price tag.
Costing under £50, the appliance provides both hydrotherapy and soothing massage options through its various functions and accessories.
Its main purpose is that of producing bubbles for a soothing water massage. Up to an extent, it is similar to the professional foot spas used in wellness centres, albeit the bubbles are weaker than expected.
Two removable accessories – a massage roller and a pumice stone – further contribute to the all-round foot spa experience. The roller is mechanical and intuitive to use, while the stone also does what it’s supposed to do brilliantly.
Ease of Use
The Pediprep from Revlon is the “set it and forget it” kind of appliance, except there are no settings. This device is very easy to use by people of all ages. Simply fill it with warm water – or cold, if you prefer – and press the on button.
There is no heating function, but the foot spa will maintain water temperature. We like that the button is waterproof, so you won’t have to worry about spills or splashes.
Emptying and cleaning the tub after the wellness session is also easy. Overall, operating the Pediprep is as easy as it gets; a smooth, frustration-free experience.
Living up to its name, the Pediprep really helps you prep your feet for that much-needed pedicure. To do so, it comes with a complete pedicure set that adds more value for money. Perhaps this set isn’t the fanciest out there, but it still includes all essentials.
You’ll get a brush and nail cleaner, cuticle scissors plus two cuticle pushers, toe separators for easier nail polishing, an emery board, as well as a pouch to keep all items organised.
– The Bad
The Pediprep is an excellent foot spa overall, but the lack of functions has some drawbacks, too. One that bothers us is the lack of heating settings. You’ll have to fill the tub with warm water, to begin with, and even if the appliance will maintain the temperature, it would have been nicer to just be able to warm up colder water, too.
However, using warm water, to begin with, means lower electricity consumption. With this in mind, perhaps it isn’t such a bad thing after all.
While the absence of a heat function could go unnoticed, another downside is the weakness of the bubbles. More than a proper massage, it’s a sort of soothing action. Don’t expect it to have the power of a professional foot spa, while the absence of massagers on the bottom of the tub could make it a bit boring to use for extended periods.
Needless to say, the appliance doesn’t allow you to set various intensity levels. So, if you like stronger jets, perhaps you should focus on another foot spa.
Last but not least, we were surprised by the noise this small appliance can produce. No, it won’t bother your neighbours, but you’ll have to turn the telly volume up or use earbuds to listen to your favourite tunes while indulging in this home spa treatment.
The Revlon Pediprep foot spa is an excellent choice if you don’t have high expectations and want a budget foot spa. Its greatest advantage is by far the attractive price tag. We also like that it comes with a variety of accessories and that it is very easy to operate.
Undeniably, we’d recommend it for the elderly or anyone who doesn’t want to wrap their heads around setting water temperature or bubble intensity levels. Once you’ve filled it, it will do everything else on its own with no intervention from your side.
However, if you’re aiming for the ultimate home spa experience, perhaps you should focus on a different model. The Pediprep only has one foot massage roller, and the bubbles are pretty weak. You won’t be able to warm up the water either, and overall, this thing is loud.
That said, we like its longevity and reliability. This foot spa will undoubtedly serve you well for a long time. All in all, an excellent choice at a price that won’t break the bank.
