it kind of depends. If I've been to the place before and I know what products they use, I might or might not (depending on the products). My regular "deluxe" pedicure place regularly uses salt scrubs, but if you're just shaved, they switch it out and just use a different, non-salt product. Just be sure to let them know if you just shaved. My regular "cheapie" place doesn't use any scrub - just lotion - so there's nothing to worry about.
