anti aging: is this the answer to botox?
Categories: beauty, blogging mums

Like most women, I use moisturisers and spend quite a bit on them but I’ve never tried botox because I’m worried it would freak me out and I would have to wait six months to be rid of it. Plus, I also like to have facial expressions.

That said, I have an inquisitive nature and I love to know about beauty stuff. When I spotted this curious object recently at my local beauty salon, I was intrigued. To the untrained eye it looks rather like some kind of iPod, with headphones that are a bit too small…well, that’s what it looked like to my eyes anyway.

‘What the hell is that is it?’
‘It’s a facial rejuvenator’
‘You can try it if you want.’
‘I’m too scared to put that on my face in a bit of a hurry – how long does it take?’
‘You can try it for three minutes…’
‘Nah, thanks for the offer but I must dash home and google it madly for hours have to get home.’

So what is it? It’s the Slendertone Face product. It claims it can exercise the facial expression muscles to tone and lift the face. It’s also got three settings for Lift, Radiance and Massage. It seems a bit like a TENS machine and small currents cause the facial muscles to contract and relax. The premise is quite a simple one, the facial muscles are excercised therefore creating a lift effect. The other settings are to increase bloodflow and create a healthy look on the Radiance setting and the Massage is a facial relaxer. There is a lot of information on the Slendertone Face site, so a good idea to check out the FAQs. To get results, it’s recommended the product is used 20 minutes a day, five days a week.

That’s 1200 minutes of facial exercise. That’s a lot. And I’m going to try it out and see if it works. I will take before and after pics (sorry but they will be make up free too but it’s all in the name of beauty!).

Slendertone has given me one of the units to try out. I can’t tell you anything else yet, other than it’s being charged up and that takes three hours…more to follow…
