#AD Revlon Big & Bouncy


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.

  1. Yes, please do let us know how it goes – I would be very interested?

    Have you had any experience with the Tua Trend or Tua Viso?

    Thanks!

  2. I’m planning to invest in the Slendertone Face in the New Year but before I do that would love to know how you’ve been getting on now that it’s been several months since you started using it.

    thanks.

  3. thanks so much for your response to the Slendertone efficacy – it’s now on my New Year resolution purchase list. Thanks for all the great advice and looking forward to more in 2010. Enjoy your break.

  4. Hello, so what was the result of your use of the slendertone face? I have become interested in this product recently, but so far not able to find anyone who can give a long term evaluation, just a few people who posted a year ago. Any results?

  5. While I was using it I loved it – I certainly did feel it increased bloodflow and there is enough current to make me feel that overall there would be long term results. However, i have to be honest and say that it fell by the wayside – you have to be super-committed..even though it seems like a small ask, like anything it soon becomes tedious to use and I just ground to a halt. Sorry I can’t give you a more long-term review.

  6. Thank you kindly for your response. It is a very expensive product, but maybe a way to avoid a face lift. I was hoping you would have more to tell, but I understand.

It’s clear that there is an issue with the not-yet-released Slendertone Face machine. I’ve actually broken two of them in the space of two weeks – once I can put down to a one-off, but two have snapped in exactly the same place. Either I am extra wide-headed or there is a weakness in the design. I’ve now spoken with Slendertone and it turns out that the prototype – which I was using – has a flaw, but the new batch coming out next week doesn’t. This is a huge relief, not least because I really like this machine and think it will work, but also because I am not the double-left handed klutz that keeps wrecking expensive equipment…whew!
