As you guys know that Team India Fashion Blogger attended a makeup and lifestyle workshop organized by VLCC in June. VLCC gave us a hamper of it’s product as a thank you token and today I’m going to share my views on the VLCC Shape Up Slimming Oil.
Cost: Rs. 500 for 200 ml
Claims of VLCC
Most women tend to suffer from ungainly flab, uneven skin texture and dimpled skin. This stubborn fat is cellulite, more commonly known as “Orange Peel Syndrome”. The prime reason for cellulite is Adipose Tissues. These tissues swell into fat, expanding into the dermis causing overlaying skin to protrude. Since cellulite is no ordinary fat, it needs special attention and will disappear with just routine exercise or dieting.
Shape Up is the result of 15 years of research and ongoing R&D at VLCC. Based on the goodness of herbal ingredients, this product is made with herbal and aromatic oils. VLCC Shape up Slimming Oil has been specially formulated to reduce cellulite, firm skin and increase skin elasticity. It’s non-greasy formula is easy to apply and gets absorbed fast. This unique oil helps to fight stubborn fat, reduce flab and firms skin and leaves it smooth and toned with visible results in just a few weeks.
Like every woman develops cellulite post puberty I too did. Sigh :/ can’t wear a bikini because of that. Sex, race, biotype, subcutaneous fat and several other factors contribute and affect the development of cellulite. Only men with certain deficiencies develop cellulite deposits. It is a topographic skin change and is evident when you develop dimples and nodules on the pelvic region, lower limbs and abdomen.
The different natural substance extracts used in the oil improve blood circulation, increase skin elasticity and help the muscle hold the burden of the fat tight. This is how the appearance of the cellulites reduces over time. However, this doesn’t happen overnight. The result will not be very convincing if you continue to eat fatty foods or live a very unhealthy life.
Direction of Use
Well the right way to use this natural formula is to massage it on thoroughly and then cover the area with hot towel for 15-20 minutes. You will find instructions on the box and in an enclosed leaflet that teach you the correct strokes for maximum effect. I have been using this oil for the past 20 days with the hot towel and all. I thought I would review it since the oil is almost over and 20 days is sufficient time for a trial test.

Shape Up Slimming Oil Side Effects
Shape Up Slimming Oil side effects are not so strong. On regular application, my skin felt itchy. But it was not so severe. The problem can be worse if you buy a fake product from a non-reliable source. The fake products might have duplicate ingredients, or inappropriate quantity of the ingredients.
