Addicted to your Clarisonic? Wait Till You Get a Load of Their Latest Gadget

Coming soon: A device that will make your gnarled, calloused feet as smooth as a toddler's tushy

Since hitting the market in 2005 (and becoming one of Oprah's "Favorite Things" that same year), the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System has become the gold standard for cleansing brushes -- as well as many women's best friend.

All you have to do is skim the 123 reviews of the gadget to get a sense of how much ladies love it.

Take, for example, "Kenya" who has racked up 504 product reviews. She rates the device a 10 (it averages a 9.2) and says that it's "AMAZING" and that, "The brushes are very gentle and exfoliating -- You can really feel the clean and no matter how many times you wash your face, this is always gentle on your skin. I have suffered from acne before and [now that] I have been using it for over a month, I have seen a MAJOR decrease in my acne. I love this so much and it has given me the confidence to feel less self-conscious. This product is truly life changing!

So, you get the idea. People adore this thing.

That's why, I'm betting that folks are going to go bonkers when Sonic's parent company, L'Oreal USA's debuts their latest device, the Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation.

Launching next week, the foot-smoothing tool will retail for $199 and be available at stores nationwide including Sephora, Nordstrom, Ulta and Macy's.

"We really wanted to extend the idea of skin transformation from head to toe," Carol Hamilton, president of L'Oreal USA's luxury products division, told WWD. "We know that about two-thirds of women have pedicures done. While it is a luxury and a service women look forward to, it is often a service they can't afford every two weeks, or they don't have time for an hour to keep their feet as beautiful as they'd like them to be. For the price of three urban pedicures, this device gives you the ability to keep your feet in perfect shape in between professional pedicures.

While it may seem counter-intuitive to launch a product that it "precision-engineered to create beautiful, smooth, sandal-ready feet" at the precise moment when most of the country is putting their open-toed shoes away till Spring, the point may well be that it's nice to have "sandal-ready" feet even if you're not showing them off.

The device comes with a stainless steel smoothing disc, a buffing-brush head for use in wet or dry conditions and three products: 6-oz. Pedi-Buff, 3.5-oz. Pedi-Balm and 30-ml. Pedi-Boost.
