Skin type: Combination and acne prone
There are so many slimming products available these days. Some may work while some may not. I have one such product from VLCC. It looked pretty tempting to me since I have little belly fat which does show up when I wear fitted clothes; hence, I got this one to try out. I bought it quite long back and somehow forgot to review it. So here is the review for you guys!
Price: Rs 250
Want to get slimmer without hitting the gym or going through a crash diet? The VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil may be what you are looking for. It is formulated with a blend of herbal ingredients that help reduce cellulite and flab.
Get Slimmer the Natural Way
This herbal slimming oil works to fight stubborn fat, which comes as a result of fatty food intake, stress and a lot of other reasons related to our modern lifestyle. Bid adieu to fat and get firmer skin with no wrinkles. It also reduces flab and helps you get back in shape without much effort. Get toned up, look slimmer and regain confidence with this natural shaping solution.
How to Use:
Massage oil onto flabby areas, especially on stomach, upper arms and legs for about 15 to 20 minutes and cover the massaged area with a hot towel for 10 minutes. Upon regular usage, you will notice visible results in a few weeks’ time.
My Experience with VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil:
This is probably the first slimming oil for cellulite that I have tried and it worked in a very decent way for me, so let’s see the in-depth review.
Packaging: The oil comes in a nice small-sized see-through bottle which is great as we can know exactly when to get a new bottle. The size is very handy and the cap closes with a click, hence no need to worry about it being leaked in the bag or something. The hole on the lid is small which lets out a good amount of quantity which is needed for the massage. The bottle nicely mentions all the instructions on how to use it. The price is amazing, so even if it hadn’t worked out, I wouldn’t have regretted putting in 200 bucks.
Consistency and smell: The oil comes in yellow colour much like hair oil. I used it only on my tummy area because that part is the area of concern. The consistency is runny so the moment I pour it on my palm, I have to rub it on. It smells very much like those Ayurvedic oils which are used to massage babies. It smells very woody and extremely spicy but it makes me feel that these hot things work to reduce the tummy flab 😛 The spicy smell relaxes me at times but sometimes it gets to the head. So I am really confused as most of the people won’t like the smell of this oil.
Results: The moment I start massaging the oil on my tummy, I start getting a warming sensation. The sensation is pleasant and makes me feel like it is working. I take a good 5 minutes to massage it and I do that hot towel thing as instructed only when I have the time. I did start to see the results after a week as the area looked a bit firm than before. My belly flab was reduced to a decent extent 2 months after using this every day. But it does work only with slow results. It is not some miracle product, so it takes its own time to work. Particularly at this price, I couldn’t expect anything better. But if you have a huge tummy, then it might not work for you.
Pros of VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil:
• Handy see-through bottle which lets us know when to get a new one.
• Can be carried along since it is leak-proof.
• Very affordable and a very little amount required for each use.
• It smells very aromatic and much like those stress relieving massage oils.
• It instantly starts giving me a warming sensation which makes me feel like it is working
• It reduces 50% of the flab which is good.
• My skin became a little firm after using it.
Cons of VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil:
• It won’t give you a flat belly (I did not even expect that).
• The smell can get in the head over a time.
• A lot of patience is needed as the results are very slow.
Will I Repurchase/Recommend VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil?
Yes I might! It does not give a completely flat belly but it does show decent results. And I am a lazy bum who does not want to work out, so it is a good option for me. Do try it if you can be patient and will spend time to use it every day.
IMBB Rating: 3.8/5
Conclusion: I got one more cream like this from Shahnaz Hussain 😛 Let’s see whether it gives me a flat belly or not. Will put up the review once my trail is done!
