Stepping into the second quarter of 2014, everything just got double-loaded. Shopping needs doubled, work-load doubled (minus the pay ㅠ_ㅠ), and the number on the scale. NO! It did not double. But, have gotten up *sigh*.
Correct me if I’m wrong, being slender and slim is the life-long pursuit of the (self-conscious) female majority! And sadly enough, I am one of the majority. Which resulted in the 101 search of (fastest, most effective and permenant) ways to keep the weight limit in-check.
There are 1001 product in the market, just like one that I’ve used before. And here I am with yet another one – 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body. The brand has been in the market for quite some years (mainly in Hong Kong) and they have Tavia Yeung (杨怡) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) as their faces.
As a very “scientific” person, what caught my eyes is the active ingredient named Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (AH3), or better known with their commercialized name – Argireline®. Argireline® is a form of anti-aging ingredient (think anti-wrinkle). However, the efficacy is aomewhat arguable as the ingredient inhibits the reactions that cause muscles to move or contract, which in a way stop your muscle from contraction(?). By which translates into causing muscle to sag(?). However, Dr Oz did suggest its use (as part of the ingfredients of) for fine lines reduction, replacing Botox.
You can check out the texture and some personal opinions on the product in my very first embrassingly-awkward-self-editted video (I had fun editting tho, put in extra effort for BTS ^_~).
