About Callus Magic
Callus Magic is a new, all-natural “As Seen on TV” product that claims to help you make your cracked, dry calluses vanish in minutes, without painful cutting or scraping. In fact, just by using its triple action gel callus remover, Callus Magic is claimed to be incredibly effective and to only leave behind healthy, smooth skin on your feet.
Even though summer is almost over, you don’t want to have to worry about unsightly calluses whether you’re wearing sandals, taking a dip at the pool, or just relaxing with your friends. As such, can you expect a $10 “As Seen on TV” product to help you do this? Keep reading to find out.
Understanding How Callus Magic Works
At its most basic, Callus Magic claims to use fast-acting nano-sphere dermabrasion beads to quickly penetrate deeply into the skin of your feet, which exfoliate and remove the dead skin that’s causing your calluses. Despite this, Callus Magic’s acid-free formula is claimed to exfoliate without irritation, unlike traditional methods of callus removal.
Overall, the manufacturer claims that Callus Magic is so easy to use that you have to “just apply and say goodbye,” and that it’s versatile enough to also be used on your elbows and hands.
Callus Magic Pricing & Refund Policy
Callus Magic is priced at $10 plus $7.95 S&H, and you’ll be able to double your order for an additional $7.95 S&H, bringing your total to $25.90.
Callus Magic comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges (see more about this in the next section). In order to initiate the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 888-200-9353.
Can Callus Magic Really Help You Get Rid of Your Calluses in Minutes Per Day?
When it comes down to it, can Callus Magic really help you remove unsightly calluses as well as it claims, or does it just amount to marketing hype? Consider the following:
Putting Callus Magic’s Claims into Perspective
First, it’s important to note that abrasive “spheres” such as those included in Callus Magic can be found in a wide variety of other beauty products, including body washes and face scrubs. With this in mind, it’s unlikely that Callus Magic’s beads can provide enough abrasion to make a real difference in the tough skin found on your calluses.
Ultimately, this means that Callus Magic’s “triple action gel” is what provides its benefits (if any), although we’re not informed what this gel contains, or any of its ingredients. This is a bit disconcerting considering that this is something you’ll be putting on the sensitive areas of your feet, and you deserve to know exactly what’s in it.
Finally, keep in mind that even though Callus Magic claims to work in “only minutes per day,” how long will it be until you see results and the callus is removed? Is it just a matter of days, or is it weeks or months?
Callus Magic is an “As Seen on TV” Product
Next, most “As Seen on TV” products tend to come with low customer satisfaction ratings, often due to complaints of poor performance. However, although Callus Magic’s URL has been registered since November 2013, there are no online customer reviews that can be used to gauge overall satisfaction levels.
Another common theme among “As Seen on TV” products is high shipping and handling charges, Callus Magic included. In fact, if you’re dissatisfied with the product and decide to process a refund, you’ll be out $14.90 is S&H charges, even before factoring in what it will cost you to send it back to the manufacturer.
Also, the manufacturer behind Callus Magic is somewhat of a mystery, although based on the customer service number listed on the product’s website, it appears to be the same manufacturer as the Pocket Griller. However, as we mentioned in our review for this product, the manufacturer was unidentifiable as well.
Finally, keep in mind that your information will be “used by [the company] to contact consumers for marketing purposes and shared with other reputable organizations to help them contact consumers for marketing purposes.” In other words, you can expect spam and/or unwanted phone calls soon after placing your order.
Based on the fact that Callus Magic is an “As Seen on TV” product with high S&H charges and a questionable formulation, you may want to speak with your podiatrist about more tried-and-true methods of removing calluses.
