Now I’ve turned 28 this apparently is the time I should start thinking about anti-ageing skincare. Who knew that you could look like a teenager yet still need to stock up on those anti-wrinkle creams? I’m all for giving things a whirl and the latest thing to drop through my letterbox (or not because the box is pretty huge) is the latest product from cult slimming brand Slendertone. The new Slendertone Anti-Ageing Face Toner uses all the same technology and ideas as the regular version (you know the one that your mum used to use around her stomach to achieve Mr Motivator abs) to buzz you to clearer, plumper and more radiant skin.
When I first saw this and opened the box I thought it was basically an MP3 player and headphones! It does look a bit strange, but the modernity and simpleness of the product really made me question what I thought the brand was about. It’s very lightweight and looks quite ‘Minority Report’ so I can imagine sitting in front of the telly buzzing away to my hearts content (no dodgy intentions here.)
This is the blurb they have to say…. “Slendertone Face is a revolutionary anti-aging product, harnessing EMS toning technology to work your facial muscles. Regular, at home use of the product boosts muscle volume which in turn lifts and plumps the skin smoothing out the surface to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to building muscle volume and lifting the face; the increase in blood flow improves the condition of the skin and gives a radiant complexion. A convenient head set positions pads on either side of your face to target the Facial nerve which controls all the facial muscles; gently but effectively exercising them to firm and tone – delivering a natural facelift from the inside out.”
I’m going to be using the Slendertone Face for 30 days to see if it really can make a difference to skin. Stay tuned to see ridiculous pictures of me using it and hilarious stories about how I managed to electrocute myself – although I’m 99% sure this is impossible. It’s gonna be a rollercoster, but I’m ready.
