“My heels are smoother than canned ham.” The $4 beauty product we can’t get enough of.

Guilty of neglecting your feet and now you’re paying the price? Well, a You Beauty group member has come across an extremely affordable solution.

With the cost of living rising rapidly, people aren’t willing to pay for professional pedicures anymore, and we get it. Who wants to spend $50 getting their feet scrubbed when you can put that money towards groceries or fuel for your car?

Watch: Nail art that literally nobody asked for but we got anyway. Post continues below.

However, that also means that our poor feet are crying out for help, desperate for some love and care. With summer and sandal season fast approaching, it’s not the ideal situation to be in. But fortunately, one You Beauty group member seems to have found a nifty product, resulting in baby smooth skin.

Cass Dominic swears by the Heros Chiropody Sponge, a $4 foot scrubber that promises to “wash corns and callouses away”.

“Don’t waste money on fancy heel exfoliates, get down to Chemist Warehouse and hand over a few dollar bucks for the chiropody sponge,” she wrote. “My heels are smoother than a canned ham sliding along silk sheets.”

Her post garnered plenty of attention, with fellow You Beauty members sharing their own positive experiences with the miracle sponge.


“This is brilliant! Take caution when using fake tan after though as it clings to fresh skin,” commented one member.

“Love love love this product!” said another.

Other members chimed in with their own tips and tricks, saying to apply urea cream afterwards to get even better results.

This cream is a total game changer! The cream has urea and actives in it. It’s the best and I’ve tried everything. My heels needed to be scraped weekly and would still crack and bleed. I haven’t found anything similar to this,” wrote top contributor, Jessica O’Donnell.

And if that wasn’t enough to make you run to your nearest Chemist Warehouse, the Heros Chiropody Sponge has been reviewed by 113 people and is sitting at 4.9 stars on the pharmacist’s website.

“I was looking for something to remove the dead skin on my feet and the staff recommended this and boy oh boy am I amazed! This stuff is magic! It removed all my dead skin by day two and my feet are amazingly soft,” read one review.

So, what does the Heros Chiropody Sponge do?

To sum it up, the Heros Chiropody Sponge removes painful corns, callouses and dead skin from the soles of your feet. It’s like a pumice stone, only it’s a lot more effective.

According to the website, the sponge can also be used on the palms of your hands to help remove callouses, dried paint and ink. 

And that’s not all — the sponge is really great at exfoliating any rough areas on the body such as the elbows and knees. We love a multi-tasking product.

How do you use the Heros Chiropody Sponge?

Do not skim over this part, because the Heros Chiropody Sponge can quickly turn into a disaster if used incorrectly.

  1. Soak your feet and the sponge in warm water for a few minutes.

  2. Rub the damp sponge on a bar of soap.

  3. Grab the soapy sponge and gently scrub any dry, scaly skin on the bottom of your feet, focusing on areas that have corns and callouses.

  4. Finish with a moisturiser and you’re done! Easy peasy.

Who knew an unassuming sponge would be the answer to smooth, silky feet?
