I’ve talked about her enough on here, she’s been very silent for a long time (and very patient) while I’ve tested and trialled, dragged her along to places that are out of her comfort zone (even though the bribe of an alcoholic drink never is turned down) so can you IMAGINE after telling her all about my guest blogging posts, my plans for the ELLEfluence platform and how I have a massive vision for this growing space I occupy on the internet this post landed in my inbox. Not just a mention over dinner that she was thinking of writing, but an official email.
Ladies (and gentlemen) I give you Mamma Blonde’s first blog on double chins and I’m so impressed. All hail the Queen.
Unlike my daughter, I am not a beauty expert or connoisseur of fashion. Don’t get me wrong I like to be nicely presented and never leave the house even to walk the dog without a light dusting of makeup and a bit of lippy but I certainly don’t spend hours on end pampering and preening. Anything that takes more than 20 minutes to complete and I’ve lost interest. I am therefore generally fairly sceptical about all of the claims that are made with the bombardment of beauty products that are on offer and I am certainly not a marketers dream.
So when I was asked to try Chin Up you can imagine my comments…………
I was sent a link to the Youtube video showing all of these women measuring their chins before and then again after they had tried Chin Up and exclaiming that in the short space of 30 minutes they had lost several centimetres from their chins! An absolute miracle. Impossible I thought. So I was more than happy to give it a go and try this out and demonstrate that these claims were perhaps somewhat exaggerated.
The kit comes with a Lycra head strap with velcro fastening and holes for your ears. It looks frankly like a contraption for torture and not the most glamorous appendage for a woman. That said, once in place, it was fairly comfortable and Fitted snugly and securely so I could carry on doing whatever I wanted with it on for the 30 minutes while I waited for my Chin miracle to happen. The secret to it all is the moist cloth that goes inside and is held in place by the head strap around and under the Chin and neck.
This contains four key active ingredients:
– Vitamin E, which posses moisturising and protective properties as well as acting as an antioxidant.
– Corum 9235, which stimulates the absorption of the serum and promotes the losing of chin fat.
– Q10 Coenzyme, which Stimulates cell strengthening and promotes the regeneration of skin.
– SkinTronics, which boosts the density of collagen and cell tension, instantly lifting and firming up to 20%.
And of course, the piece de resistance a small tape measure to enable those crucial statistics to be taken before and afterwards.
The instructions were clear, measurements are taken, miracle little moist cloth in position, headpiece secured, I was ready to be unimpressed. I felt some warmth and tingling in my Chin and thought perhaps I had my strap on too tightly but this was the magic at work, and when I say magic I actually mean MAGIC!!!!!!
Time up and I removed the head strap, peeling away the moist cloth I could already feel my chin was smoother and more in line with my jawline and not slightly sagging as I have grown accustomed to as my skin ages. Surprising myself I couldn’t wait to check this out with the tape measure and see whether this was an illusion or something had really happened to my somewhat drooping Chin to make it disappear. I measured several times just to make sure and each time it was the same I had lost 3, YES THREE, centimetres in half an hour from my Chin.
This mini-miracle lasted about three days and I was absolutely astounded. My face looked far more slender without my little saggy double chin. This might not be something that I would perhaps do on a regular basis but I certainly will do it again for a special night out. I am a complete convert, well done Chin Up you have not only knocked my double chin back into shape you have also knocked a bit of the cynic out of me.
