I've also picked up pumice sponges and cheap plastic nail brushes like I've seen in nail shops. Using the cuticle remover with a nail brush leaves my hands and feet with that fresh "just got a mani/pedi" feeling.

I've been using a lotion from the foot doctor (my husband got it when he went for his orthotics). It has alpha hydroxy acid and it has slowly made my feet smoother. You have to wash your hands after using. It's called Kamea exfoliating foot cream. When the calluses and cracks are gone I'm supposed to switch to a maintenance cream with uric acid (same brand). It was $$ and I would not have bought it, but it is helping. One tube lasts a long time and I had terrible cracks that would hurt. Now I have "normal" feet.
I use the cheap foot scrubbing blocks they use when you get a pedicure. After soaking your feet use some soap to give slip and scrub. You don't have to scrub enough to remove the callus, just soften it. Then slather on Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair and some socks and go to bed. A couple days of this your feet will be like new!

I ended up getting amlactin rapid relief. It's what my dr recommended. You can get it at walmart/target. It doesn't leave a greasy feel and has worked really well. I do a pumice stone first and then lotion using the amlactin.
I have the callus eliminator hazelden posted. I am pretty sure I got it based on recommendations from this board. That plus a lava stone after a shower, followed by a ton of lotion with socks at bedtime makes a big difference.
I don’t have the patience to wait for Baby Feet (foot?) to take days or weeks to work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
