I’m going all out at the moment to look perfect for my wedding. I’m having facials, trialling hairstyles, upping my game with my skincare routine and trying my hardest to lose some weight.
My double chin has been a stubborn issue since my late 20’s. I hate that it’s there and I hate that it doesn’t seem to go down, even when I lose some weight.
When I was approached to review a Chin Up non-surgical face lift mask, I was ready to try anything. It sounded amazing, but I must admit, I was sightly dubious, I just couldn’t understand how a mask could shed my unpleasant double chin!
I was ready to give it a go, so I said ‘yes please!’ and it arrived promptly.
After accepting the generous offer to try it, I started doing my homework. After all, it sounded too good to be true, but I was desperately hoping it would be the solution to my problem.
After a quick Google search, I saw that there were some fantastic reviews out there, so I couldn’t wait to get started. I was sent a Chin Up Mask Trial Pack.
The trial pack contains the slimming band, two face masks, some instructions and a tape measure. This is what the slimming band looks like and the single use masks sit inside.
Instructions were included but I still wanted to see it in action before I put it on myself, so I watched a video on the ChinUp website.
Before you start, you are meant to measure your chin in two different places. One measurement is ear-to-ear along your jaw line and one measurement is ear-to-ear but below your jaw line. For me that’s the bit where my double chin hangs
You then apply the mask to your chin and neck then wear the slimming band as per the instructions. If you want to make sure it’s on the right way round, I suggest you have a look at the video on the website too.
The measurements I took before any treatments were as follows:
Along the jawline 25cm
Below the jawline 23cm
This is what my double chin looked like:
I applied the mask, donned the slimming band, and looked as stylish as you’d imagine.
I left the mask on for the suggetsed 30 minutes, then massaged my under chin area and removed the band and mask. I was very excited to measure and see if there really was a difference.
My measurements after were as follows:
Along the jawline 23cm
Below the jawline 21cm
And this is what it looked like:
I was honestly amazed! I couldn’t believe it made such a difference! You are advised to do this regularly to maintain the results, so I did it again the following week. I forgot to take my before measurements but my after measurements were:
Along the jawline 22cm
Below the jawline 19.5cm
I think by shrinking my double chin, my face look thinner as a whole (and I’m by no means a slim woman).
How does it work though?
From what I can gather, it boosts the lymphatic drainage system (which is something that can make you look bloated if it’s not draining properly). It also uses a formula that helps tighten the skin. The slimming band plays a part in lifting and contouring the skin around your jaw,neck and even cheeks. There is also a moisturising element which helps moisturise and nourish the skin to help fight the signs of ageing.
Those are the basic explanation, but there is more information of the Chin Up Website if you’re into the sciencey bit.
If you’re interested in trying the Chin Up Mask, you can buy it from Amazon.
