VLCC SHAPE UP Anti-Cellulite Gel Shape Up in 14 days
Well I am feeling funny that I am writing about shape up because there was a time I used to laugh at such products. I always believed and still believe so that only excercise and well balanced diet can help you keep in good shape…
But one of those days I was really depressed due to some reasons and even though I love clothes a lot, my feel good shopping comprises of makeup/skincare stuff:P
So there I was one day shopping uselessly and I found this product lying on the shelf. I read anti-cellulite written across it and Bam!! I bought it, I knew it wasn’t going to make me slim and toned ( as per how Malaika Arora used to describe it when she endorsed it :P) but I thought it would tighten/firm my skin as I had flabby upper arms.Although I don’t have a major cellulite problem there were just like abt one – two short lines of stretchmark on both my upper thighs which i never used to mind, but I thought oh well let me try it and I bought it.
Let see what it claims :
- Shape up in 14 days* ( results may vary person to person)
- Helps in tightening of slack tissues, detoxifies and shapes your body
- Unique anti cellulite gel makes you look beautiful, giving your skin an even and smooth appearance
Directions for use:-
Massage everyday on affected cellulite or fat areas for 15-20 minutes
An ayurvedic product. For external use only.
Shelf life:3 years
Price Rs. 325 for 100 gms
I had got this product about 1 and a half year ago.I started using it on my upper arms and massged over the area for about two to thre minutes. It is realy impossible to massage for 15 to 20 mins as instructed on the tube. Because it gets absorbed pretty soon and I would have to keep taking more and more from the tube to be able to keep uptil 15 to 20 mins! But nearly after 1 week or so, after not seeing any results, I thought oh what the heck let’s try more product and massage for so long. I finished my tube to about half.
NO RESULT. Absolutely not even teeny tiny diffrnce. I stashed it away.
CUT to near present: A month ago I saw this tucked away in the cabinet and I have been worrying about my recently growing double chin.I thought I’ll give it another chance.There is nothing to lose.
No results obviously in 14 days.I continued to use it for a month or so after a month I saw very teeny tiny diffrnce but I cant attribute it to this gel because i had already started doing some cardio and double chin excercises and continued regularly. But i would rather believe its either a combined result or the excercise regimen alone.
Lets see what it looks like:
Its packed in a plastic tube,with a flip cap .
It is a pretty thick lemon yellow colored gel. But its spreads very easily and evenly and hence its easy to massage. But gets absorbed not too soon i would say but soon enough. It disappears into invisible colour but leaves a very thin film on the applied area.
Its smell more Unani than Ayurvedic. hence its not bad. Its pretty nice actually. Its smells more like saunf and ajwain..
Pros of VLCC Anti Cellulite Gel
- It is ayurvedic . so no side effects. Seriously. No suspicious darkening/whitening/drying/itching .Nothing.
- Smell is calming
- Soothing on application
Cons of VLCC Anti Cellulite Gel
Doesn’t live upto its 14 days claim. On a further note- doesn’t live upto its claim at all..!!
The “ massage for 15-20mins” part is quite misleading… ummm.. maybe so that the product is finished up fast and bought again and again by the user. Never mind.It still doesn’t work that way too. Wastage of time with all that massaging. 325 bucks go down the drain
I gave it :-* just because even though it wasn’t usefull atleast it was harmless. Otherwise such slimming products/capsules etc super freaky.
Would I buy it again? Hell no!!! But I will finish this tube up though.
Hope this review helped u guys. Plz don’t be silly like me and go for it if ur just shopping to lift ur spirits :/
And serious weight problems can be solved only with good diet, cardio and weight training (for toning) as clichéd as it may sound!!!
