Firming Up with SnoeThursday, December 12, 2013
Let the bells do the jingling and JIGGLING this Christmas, not your body! Preparing for summer is never too early! Firm up with Snoe's Body Wonderland Slenderizing Gel! I don't know about you, but I am easily sold by products that can give you the same effects of cosmetic surgery without the actual surgery. (*snicker*)
I have been dying to try this product and see what it will do for my wobbly bits, and finally I get to!
|Snoe Body Wonderland Slenderizing Gel, PhP 849.00|
I am going to be a bridesmaid in June so I need all the help I can get and I am starting early! I have 6 months to go and it's always good to get a jumpstart on things. I have been on this gel for 2 weeks now and have combined it with a low-carb diet.
Let's talk packaging, as always, SNOE gets an A for packaging. I love the graphic design and the quality of this bottle is top notch. It pumps product the perfect amount each time and it has a locking mechanism when you twist the pump spout.
I don't know if the "firming up" is the result of me doing a low-carb diet or if the gel actually works. But I do know that most of my cellulite are less obvious because of this.
This had me at COFFEE EXTRACT. Coffee reduces inflammation in our skin. So if you have redness in your skin, this gel will reduce the appearance of skin irritation. In other words, use of skin care products containing caffeine will reduce and prevent inflammation and redness, leaving you with a beautiful, even skin tone. (YAY!)
I love the smell! It smells of vanilla, chocolate and coffee so it's such a delight to slather on your skin at night because it smells very sensual. There is a slight tingly, heating feeling when you apply it but not as bad as efficascent oil or salonpas. Just a little "heating" feeling.
Did you know that caffeine also reduces the appearance of cellulite? When I was younger, I didn't have cellulite... Unfortunately now, they have become more apparent and it's driving me nuts. Ha! I read this in the internet: "Researchers found that an application of skin cream containing caffeine to cellulite reduced the size of cellulite fat cells by 17 percent. In addition, a 2007 study performed at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro found that caffeine cream applied to cellulite decreased the hip's diameter in almost 70 percent of participants." And that it the reason why I suddenly became obsessed with Caffeinated beauty products.
Of course, you can't leave it all to cosmetics, you have to maintain a good workout routine and a healthy diet for it to work!
- It has a very good consistency which makes it very easy to apply on the skin.
- On areas where the sun don't shine on, it takes quite a while for the sticky feeling to go away (i.e. the inner thighs)
- Very good fragrance! The smell is addicting.
- My skin really looks and feels more taught just after 2 weeks!
- Product is readily available.
- I love the consistency, it's not runny which I really like nor does it have a hair gel-like consistency.
- Quick absorbing.
- Can't be used in the morning because when you sweat it feels a bit sticky.
- Pricey. Most people would not spend this much for a product they are not sure would work.
MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★☆
