Idle Monday leads to beauty discoveries

Bored and refusing this watch TV this idle Monday night, I began to notice the stuff that I brought home these past few weeks. I had some beauty products from SeriAsia, given by my good friends from PMP during their recently concluded Vanity Fair event held a few weeks back.

I was planning to use them one of these days, but with the schedule I have at the office, the wedding coordinating thing that I have begun PLUS other stuff, the plan to use them and write my findings on the product has taken a backseat. Well, tonight is the perfect night to begin experimenting with all the products I have stashed here at home, especially since The Hubby is on night shift duty today (in exact, no one will be around to make the wise-ass remarks). Inside the nifty paper bag were two products, a sampler of the 6-in-1 Body Treatment Lotion and a 120g bottle of the Ganodema Body Moisturizer.

this is what's inside the small brown paper bag - the 6-in-1 lotion

I decided to try first the 6-in-1 Body Lotion, the little print out says that “it’s clinically-proven to reduce 6 inches in 1 month of use. helps achieve ideal body shape, reduces cellulite and fat, reduces muscle stiffness and fatigue, and restores skin’s elasticity…”

Well, I am a COPYWRITER and PR practitioner by profession, so I can easily say that to write a copy like that is easy–give and take about an hour.

But the truth lies on what happens next when you use it. After applying the product on the desired area (“slowly, on a circular motion” says the print ad), I began to feel a warm sensation on the surface of my skin where the product was applied. I can also feel the part of my skin (in exact: the dreaded tummy area) sweat a little. A good fifteen minutes after applying the product, I can still feel that warm yet comfortable feeling — what’s the best way to describe it? Imagine having a massage — that warm, comfortable feeling you get while the massage therapist or the masseuse is kneading on your skin, driving away the stress and strain? That’s exactly how it felt now. Like as if a massage therapist is slowly kneading away on my tummy — trying to massage away years of accumulated fat and strain.

The print out did not specify how long it would take to see results–IN EXACT, if the size of my muffin top would be significantly reduced–but I am guessing that this product needs a full month to take effect.

My plan is to finish the sampler given to me then purchase my own bottle of the 6-in-1 Body Lotion and let you know if my tummy fat has been lessened (no more muffin top!). I think this product retails at Watsons Stores (saw one at SM Makati) for PHP800.

I am not really into those wonder products that can significantly alter your body shape or your face. The most that I can go with beauty products is the requisite morning cream routine for SPF/sun protection and pore minimizer (I bought this at Avon! will let you know one of these days if it’s effective). But if SeriAsia’s 6-in-1 Body Lotion can help me achieve my dream body (without the embarrassing tummy spillage) I don’t see anything wrong with it. I guess as long as the product you use for your body does not harm you, others or the environment, I think it’s every women’s right to look and feel at their most beautiful.
