How awesome is it that I got one of these Conair Foot Spas for Christmas? I was really tempted to keep the one we bought for Dirty Santa, but that would have been really...dirty.
Instead, I put this on my list of things it would be nice to have, but I probably wouldn't actually buy for myself (since it isn't REALLY a necessity.
Then the Xmas fairy showed up and ta-da! I have one! The only good thing about the holidays being over (sad face) is that I get to write reviews on all the neat stuff.
What better place to start than this little foot spa? According to the box, it will make me smile in forced ecstasy while talking on my phone.
Luckily, you don't have to smile like that while using it.
About the Conair Foot Spa
It is pretty big, so I'm sure it would be comfortable for those with a larger shoe size. I wear an 8, and I could probably put both feet on one side and still have room.
- Three pedicure attachments. (rubber egg-shaped parts that fit on the top of the machine.)
- It has two buttons, one for vibrate, which is what makes the pedicure attachment work, and one for bubbles.
- According to the box it does not heat water, but it does maintain the heat.
We will see about that farther down in the review.
It also came with a bonus pedicure set; clippers, pumice stone, nail brush, and toe spacers, in a little black bag.
Uh oh! Assembly Required!
I'm always nervous when I see a bunch of pieces that need to be put together. Products lose points in my reviews if the assembly makes me say dirty words and throw objects.
Good news! All I had to do was snap on one part. So, bonus points for easy assembly!
Then you add a pedicure attachment, and the whole foot spa is fully assembled in only two minutes. (About 60 seconds for a normal person!)
Next, I plugged it in to check both the vibrate and bubble function. (and to make sure there were no electrical sparks.) And they are NOT kidding. It looks like it's boiling in there!
So far, we've only used this twice, but here is what's nice:
1. There is a lot of vibration, and you don't have to press hard to feel the massage.
2. The attachments stay on while you use it, but you don't have to yank or twist to get them off. Really fast and easy to change.
3. The smooth attachments are awesome. I don't care for the spiky ones because I am very ticklish. But I love the smooth ones.
4. There are plenty of bubbles! Very soothing!
5. Easy to empty after using. It is light enough to carry to the tub, and the sides are sturdy. No folding or bending when it is full of water.
6. Fits on my towel shelf for storage. Okay, this may not help everyone, but was very important to me!
7. It STAYED WARM
The absolute most important feature. I was absolutely not going to love something that didn't stay warm!
Negative Issues With This Foot Spa?
Um. I'm having to work hard here to think of something bad about the Conair foot spa. So far I am in love with it.
I suppose the worst feature (besides being a shade of green I don't really like, which is so minor) is that it is a little loud.
It's not power-tool loud, but I don't think you could talk on the phone like the woman in the photo. (Maybe that is why she is smiling that way.)
Is the Conair Foot Spa Worth Buying? My Final Word
I didn't buy this foot spa, as I said above. But after using it, I would say it is worth the money.
There are fancier versions available, but if you are just coming home from a long day, then this is a quick, easy-to-use spa that can soothe your achy feet.
If you are ticklish or just don't like stuff that bothers your feet, this spa is still relaxing. You don't have to use the pedicure attachments, but instead dip right into a warm, bubbling bath. Ahhhh...
