Its December the third everyone, hope everyone’s feeling Christmassy and festive. I’ll just get straight to the post because you guys don’t want to listen to me waffling.
So a couple of weeks ago the wonderful people at Get Shrinking sent me their shrinking violets kit for me to review for you all! So this kit is supposed to kick start your weight loss and claims to take inches off in just one use.
Inside the kit is the oil, a tape measure, cards to record your progress and the shrinky suit (wait for really great pictures of lauren looking like a roast chicken in this…) The idea is that you apply the solution to your problem areas and put on the suit – this heats the solution up and ‘activates it’ so this is exactly what I did.
After taking a bath (you’re meant to wait 12 hours before showering just to make sure the solution isn’t washed away) I applied the liquid to where I felt I needed it – my hips/waist area, my thighs and knees – before donning the shrinking suit. The texture of the liquid is quite strange it’s kind of like a gel as it comes out of the bottle but then after it begins to heat up this kind of develops to more of an oil. I’d just like to throw this out there but it also smells really nice – the solution contains lots of natural oils so I’m guessing that’d be why – I also found it to be really moisturizing which I’m not sure is a feature mentioned but it left my skin so silky and soft.
Next all you have to do is wait! So after climbing into my shrinky suit I spent an hour writing blog posts and sending various snapchats of me looking like a roast chicken – it really is that simple! You can do anything you like whilst wearing your suit, exercise, housework or chores read write whatever you want – just as long as you keep it on for the full hour. This is to raise your body temperature by 2 degrees – nothing uncomfortable just toasty and warm.
I didn’t see that much of a difference immediately after the hour however the instructions say results could take two or three days and to drink a 1-2 litres of water a day to flush any toxins out of your system soooo I stuck with it.
After the 72 hour period I could defiantly see a dramatic change, my legs looked more sculpted, my stomach was returning to how it was before I put on quite a lot of weight last summer, my knees no longer had roles (ew I know) and the back of my thighs were so much more defined. I then repeated the process as you’re meant to use the product again after 72 hours to ‘kick start’ your weight loss. Again after the next three days I noticed another big difference in my size and have since repeated the process a third time.
Over all I have lost nearly 3 inches on my waist – returning it to the way it was before I piled on the weight this summer, taken 2 inches off the top of each thigh – this is an area of my body I’m very very very conscious of and one which I despise. Finally I’ve lost around an inch on both knees and my hips.
Overall I’m extremely impressed! I’ve gained so much confidence and am so so so much happier with my body and the way I look, I will defiantly continue to use tis in the future and although it does come with the fairly hefty price tag of £99 I would highly recommend it to any of you who are really desperate to kick start a weightloss program.
