Having had a bit of a bumpy start with Slendertone Face – mainly because I was using prototypes and they weren’t as sturdy as they needed to be – I’m now using the real thing. It’s caused a huge buzz around the beauty world – it’s exclusively at Harrods (for now), but even pre-launch there was a waiting list of around 2000 people all anxious to get their hands on it. So, intially I loved it…it does very, very weird things to your face while you wear it, with muscles twitching uncontrollably, but it doesn’t feel unpleasant…in my case, one eye winks on its own for the entire 20 mintues, so it’s quite funny for others to watch (apparantly, ahem!). I started off on a low setting til I found my comfort level, and am managing about 50% of current strength available. What I genuinely like about the machine though is that it is really a low-effort treatment. Usually I use it when I’m watching TV and the 20 minutes fly by. There is definitely an increase in blood flow to the face, which in turn leaves skin looking fresher. I’m hesitant to say at this early stage that I feel everything is more toned and lifted, but there are starting to be small changes, particularly around my cheeks and jaw line. I genuinely like this innovation that works by pulsing on the cranial nerve (directly under the cheekbone) – a major facial nerve that connects to a myriad of other facial nerves – and gives it a good old work out. I’ll update again in a few months when the true results – if there are any – should be easier to see. It’s £300, but that’s barely the price of a pot of some face creams, and it’s also got some pretty impressive clinical trial results.
