About Callus RX
Callus RX is an “As Seen on TV” prescription strength 3-in-1 callus product that claims to help eliminate calluses and make your feet smooth in only 3 minutes. And by helping you to stop struggling, scraping, and grating your calluses away, Callus RX claims that their doctor and podiatrist recommended formula can provide you with “the ultimate treat for your feet.”
In order to begin using Callus RX, the manufacturer recommends applying the solution directly to your calluses, waiting 3 minutes, and your rough, dry skin will then roll off with ease. In addition to removing calluses, Callus RX’s 3-in-1 formula is also claimed to work as a cuticle remover and skin conditioner.
As such, Callus RX is claimed to do all the hard work for you by eliminating calluses in just one application, while remaining safe and easy to use.
Callus RX Pricing & Refund Policy
According to the product’s website, each 4oz bottle of Callus RX contains enough for 50 applications, and is priced at $10 plus $6.99 S&H. Like you’ll find with most “As Seen on TV” products, you’ll also need to purchase a second bottle of Callus RX with your order for an additional $6.99 S&H, bringing your total to $23.98.
With your order, you’ll also receive a 4-in-1 pedestal paddle that claims to scrub, remove, buff, and polish quickly and easily.
Callus RX comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges (see more about this in the final section). In order to initiate the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-668-1655.
What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About Callus RX?
Callus RX is a brand new product (URL registered at the end of September 2014), and as such, there are currently no online customer reviews for the callus remover.
However, Callus RX is manufactured by TeleBrands based out of Fairfield, NJ, who also makes other popular “As Seen on TV” (ASOTV) products such as Ankle Genie, Amish Secret, Grassology, and many others. According to more than 200 HighYa reader reviews for these products, they have an average rating of 1.5 stars, with the most common complaints referencing failure to work as advertised, poor product quality, and poor customer service (numerous upsells during calls, rude personnel, difficulty processing returns, etc.).
While we can’t say that these complaints necessarily apply to Callus RX, these are very common within the ASOTV industry, so it’s an important consideration to keep in mind nonetheless.
Can Callus RX Really Help Eliminate Your Calluses?
Even though Callus RX is an “As Seen on TV” product, can you realistically expect it to remove your calluses in just 3 minutes? Maybe, but keep the following in mind:
“As Seen on TV” = High S&H Charges
In addition to some of the complaints often associated with ASOTV products noted above, another is very high, non-refundable S&H charges. In the instance of Callus RX, if you’re dissatisfied with the product and decide to process a return, you’ll immediately be out $13.98 in S&H charges, which is 40% more than the cost of the product itself. And by the time you factor in whatever it’ll cost to send Callus RX back t the manufacturer, you’ll be out even more money.
What Exactly Does Callus RX Contain?
Next, the Callus RX website doesn’t provide a label or ingredients list, so there’s no way of knowing what the product contains. This is important, because Callus RX will be applied to the sensitive skin on your feet, which is then absorbed directly into your bloodstream. Because of this, you deserve to know exactly what Callus RX contains, and whether or not any of these ingredients will cause reactions with your skin.
In order to address this concern, we contacted TeleBrands customer service directly. At first, the representative knew nothing about Callus RX, but after being placed on hold we were told that it is the same product as Callous Clear, but is offered as a lotion instead of a patch. As such, the representative claimed that Callous Clear and Callus RX contain the following ingredients:
Deionized water, glycerin, sodium hydroxide, carbomer, denatured alcohol, lactic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, methyl paraben, imidazolidinyl urea, and tetrasodium EDTA.
Sharing Isn’t Always Caring
In other words, you can reasonably expect unwanted spam/phone calls soon after placing your Callus RX order.
Considering Callus RX’s “As Seen on TV” status, the lack of information about the ingredients it contains, and its very high S&H charges, you’ll want to speak with your podiatrist about other methods of effectively eliminating calluses.
