Diamond Silk is a hand-held device that's been designed to remove dry, cracked or dead skin from the bottoms of a user's feet. It's purported to be powerful enough to remove even the most stubborn calluses, revealing softer skin underneath, but gentle enough that it'll never hurt a user. This black and pink device is compact and shaped like an oval, so most users will likely be able to hold it in the palm of one hand while using it to treat their feet.
The cost of Diamond Silk is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total price of $26.98.

The filing surface on the bottom of each Diamond Silk device is made up of 1000 tiny, pointed diamonds. When you run this filing surface along a dry, rough patch of skin on your heel, it'll remove the top layer of unwanted skin without ripping and tearing at it and causing you pain. Aside from the heel of the foot, this device's filing surface will also work on the ball of the foot, where it'll quickly eliminate any dry or dead skin without subjecting you to any discomfort.
Since each Diamond Silk device doesn't contain any sort of compartment that will catch dead skin shavings, you'll need to set up a towel or some other piece of material to catch them. Otherwise, they'll end up on your floor or furniture, creating a mess.
Once you've set up something that'll catch skin shavings, hold your device in the palm of your hand with the filing surface facing down. You can hold it in either of your hands, but you'll probably experience better results if you hold it in your dominant hand. If you can't see the Diamond Silk logo on the top of your device, that means it's upside-down and needs to be flipped over.
Once you're holding your device, you can run it across the first section of dry, rough, cracked or dead skin on either of your feet that you want to remove. First, however, make sure your chosen foot is positioned over whatever's going to catch the skin shavings that fall from it. Ideally, you should be putting a moderate amount of pressure on your device and moving it in small circles along the affected area of the foot, instead of moving it from side to side. While making these circles, traveling vertically is better than traveling horizontally.
Next, if you've got any more patches of dry or dead skin that need treatment, repeat the previous step on all of those until you're satisfied with the look and feel of your feet.
When you're done with your Diamond Silk device for a while, gather up the skin shavings you've collected and toss them in a trash can or flush them down the toilet. Following that, it's a good idea to rinse off your device with water and store it in a secure place, like a bathroom cabinet, until you need it again.
Each Diamond Silk callus removal tool comes in the attractive color combination of light pink and black, so yours will likely look attractive while sitting in your bedroom or bathroom. If you pull it out in public, there's a good chance that others will find it attractive, too.
This device is shaped quite like a computer mouse, but it's even smaller than one of those, which means it'll only take up a few inches (at most) of storage space. You'll also be able to carry it in almost any bag, a suitcase or a glove compartment if you want to take it somewhere away from home with you. It may come in handy if you're planning on going to the beach, but all of a sudden realize you have unattractive callused feet.
Some beauty tools won't work while they're wet, while others will cause you pain if they're used dry, but the Diamond Silk device can be safely used wet or dry. If you want to remove calluses and other dry skin while you're in the bathtub or shower, this is a great tool to use. Your feet being sweaty also won't interfere with its effectiveness. However, if you'd prefer to work with dry feet, that choice won't make using this tool painful in any way.
Besides removing unwanted patches of skin from the feet, this tool will polish your feet at the same time, which will make them look as silky, smooth, and youthful as possible. If you normally use a moisturizing cream to give your feet a silky look, you may find you no longer need it (or as much of it) after you start using your Diamond Silk.
To use this tool to treat the bottoms of your feet, you won't need any batteries—or any electricity, for that matter. All you'll need is the power of one of your hands, so you won't have to worry about keeping batteries on hand or adding to your electrical bill. Furthermore, the fact that only your own power is needed to run this tool means that you'll be able to take it out and use it virtually anywhere, even in the middle of the woods.
Although applying cream to your feet may not be necessary once you start using your Diamond Silk on a regular basis, each device actually comes with a round container of finishing cream. If you don't need to use this cream on your feet, there's also the option of using it on your hands to make them look and feel softer and smoother.
Some men don't mind the color pink, but other men might be embarrassed to use a tool that's partially light pink, even if only their significant other sees it. While the shade of light pink used within each Diamond Silk is attractive, to appeal to more men, it would be helpful if a version of this tool containing no pink could be made available. Some women might also prefer a shade of light blue or green to be paired with the black, instead of the pink.
This particular tool is only meant for use on the bottoms of the feet, and not the tops of the feet, the hands or any other part of the human body. The bottoms of the feet are tougher than many body parts, so using a tool like this on them won't hurt you, but it could hurt more delicate parts of your body like your palms. If you happen to have dry or dead skin on your hands or elsewhere, you'll need to find another method of removing it that doesn't involve the Diamond Silk.
