Summer is when you need your feet to look their best.  After all, you have new sandals to wear and don't want to scare potential admirers off with ugly rough skin, let alone corns and calluses when you expose them swimming or sunning.   Exfoliating will smooth and soften them, but also help you avoid cracked heels.  However, I got you covered with several Sally Hansen exfoliating foot products with their Pumice Foot Polish, the Soften Your Step, and Sole Control 2-Step Foot File.

The first product I wanted to test was that Pumice Foot Polish.  This is lavender scented, grainy scrub that can be used to get rid of any rough, dry skin.  Besides lavender, there is also tea tree oil so this foot polish can smooth, nourish, and deodorize.  

Although you can work with this product on wet feet as well as dry, I found it did a better job when I rubbed those granules against my fresh washed, dry feet to help in getting rid of rough skin.  This was really nice for softening the soles of your feet.  However, I found it a wonderful aid in dealing with a corn even more.  

Even after one use, the Pumice Foot Polish was helping break down my corn more gently than other things that can also hurt.  I definitely will keep using this to fix that corn and recommend it to anyone else suffering the price of what  our stylish high heels can often do to us.  Follow with foot cream, lotion, or even body butter and your feet are softer and you're good to go.
The Soften Your Step pedicure tool that  I received is handy to own with two sides to exfoliate heels and soles.   One side has a ceramic stone and the other has a brush.  

Here's what I did.  I soaked my feet first before washing and drying them to soften the skin the best I could.  I worked with brush first to help gently work over the area.  Next, I followed with the ceramic stone side and rubbed over my heels and soles gently.  I prefer using  this gradually than overworking and causing raw skin, but it does help in smoothing that area with a bit more vigor.  I always followed with my foot cream to further help the softening cause along.

Sally Hansen's Sole Control was the last product I was sent with the most exfoliation power for tougher problems like calluses or super thick, rough skin.  This is another two-step foot file with coarse and finer grit sides. 

I followed the same steps as I did with the Soften Your Step and it does help with roughness.  However, I don't recommend trying this on your corns because this is the most extreme method of the three and they are tender enough without attempting to hurry the process along.  All other tough skin is wonderful to tackle with this.

I do like what these Sally Hansen pedicure products have done for my feet and think they are well worth looking into!
