Hence, any product that offers me this chance without a) costing a fortune and b) lying will earn an eternal place in my heart.
The latest product to earn that place is this:
Now, it costs £14, and I probably wouldn’t normally spend that on, well, on anything. This particular day, about a week ago, I was feeling a bit sorry for myself after a fight with some clothes in a New Look changing room and decided to give it a go to cheer me up.
I’m a total sucker for cute packaging, so I always check out the Soap & Glory shelf, in fact much of my bathroom is starting to look a lot like the Soap & Glory shelf. I like the smell, the look, and I find they generally work.
This time, however, I confess I was sceptical.
I’m pleasantly surprised.
I gave my thighs a thorough examining, which wasn’t pleasant, making mental note of dimples and and unattractive, non summer short friendly ripply skin. Then I obligingly massaged a layer of cream into them each morning, waited the advised 30 seconds, got dressed and then went and sat down for a bit.
What happens is your skin feels a bit hot, in that weird cold, deep heat kind of way, then it wears off. Periodically, during the day, you’ll suddenly notice your skin feels a bit hot again. I really liked this, it made me feel like the product was doing something, it might be nonsense in a scientific sense for all I know, but I liked it.
A week later I can genuinely say I have noticed a difference in the condition of my skin. They’re smoother at the tops of my thighs and 2 particularly large and unpleasant dimples are definitely significantly smaller than they were a week ago. There is no loss in in inches, but I wasn’t really expecting that, especially not for £14.
My only real complaint is that it’s slightly overpackaged, as the tube comes in an unnecessary cardboard box, but at least it’s recyclable.
I am a total convert.
Now, I’m not stupid, (shush at the back there!), I do know that I might have had similar results if I’d just massaged my thighs with anything every morning, but we’ll never know now will we.
I like the packaging. I like the heating action. I like the results.
