Foot care - Ped egg and Burt's Bees

Unfortunately my feet aways had a tendency to build up a lot of rough hard skin on them. I have always used these black filing pads and they seemed to work ok. But it was never quite as good as I would have wanted.

I have been running on a treadmill for a few months now and 'feet situation' started to get worse and worse.

I have invested in a Ped Egg. Just like many other people I was frightened of the 'cheese grater' look at first. I can say now that it's completely safe to use and it did not grate my feet to the bone :)
I don't know if Ped Egg is the best thing for rough skin but it certainly is far better than typical filing pads. First time took quite a long time to get rid of all of the roughness. But I've been using it regularly since then and it only takes couple of minutes now.

I still use my filing pad but only to smooth the skin out. Ped Egg leave it a bit 'scruffy' feeling. Couple of swiped of the pad and my feet feel so much better.
I've been also recently using Burt's Bees Coconut foot cream. However I would call it a gel rather than a cream. It has a clear, stickyish texture to it.
I do quite like it so far but it does not sink in very fast. I have not yet found a foot cream that would do. That's the only reason why I have hardly ever bothered with a foot cream.... not sinking in fast enough. I just hate that slippery, greasy feeling on my feet!

My simple, quick routine seems to be working so far and brought my feet back to their normal looking state. But it's not just about the look. Hard skin did actually cause me pain which was very unpleasant.

I would love to know your foot product recommendations as I could probably improve from here :)
