Plump up the volume
A couple of months ago I was sent a bottle of 'Intense Plumping Therapy' to review. Now, I'm heading for the big 30 in November so I figure anything that promises to help stop things shrivelling up or going South is probably worth investing in sooner or later.
The product is part of a new range brought to us by mother and reflexologist Matilda Archer, after being developed by a leading cosmetic surgeon in the USA. The range is 98% natural and paraben free and is described as being an alternative to plastic surgery. Well, I'm sold on that idea - it's certainly a darn sight cheaper too!
So what does this Intensive Plumping Treatment promise to do?
Well, it has been designed to naturally stimulate cell volume and enhance the bust, buttocks and hands within 56 days. It can also be used on the face to plump out fine lines. Brilliant! Although as my derriere is rather too substantial for my liking anyway, I wasn't even going to risk using it there - I can already give J-Lo a very good run for her money in that department.
As for my bust, well, due to unwanted weight gain over the past couple of years I don't appear to be doing too badly in that department either, for the first time in my life (why do bodies change when you get older? Really? Not that I'm complaining - I used to be flat chested). Not that I really want to talk openly to you all about my lady lumps, but, well, anything that reckons it can give a bit of thrust to your bust is a winner in my eyes, so obviously I tried it a couple of times.
(By the way, ladies, Boux Avenue do a rather gorgeous leopard print bra that "adds" two cup sizes to your bust - trust me - I nearly had my own eyes out when I tried that one!)
The places I really thought it might work well would be my face and hands. Now, having naturally quite dry skin, those are two places where I definitely need a bit of a boost, and whilst I don't have a huge number of fine lines on my face, there's always room for improvement, and my hands have always been the wrinkly bane of my life... after my bulbous butt and recently appeared jelly-belly. Seriously, this getting older malarkey is cruel; that, and wine.
So fast forward a couple of months after using it - it promises that with consistent use the 'Intense Plumping Therapy' can increase bust volume within 56 days - and have I seen any results?
Well, my bust certainly hasn't shrunk, that's for sure (hurray!). My skin on my face feels lovely and smooth and my forehead in photos looks incredibly wrinkle free (although I do like to use a good camera angle and photo app Instagram), plus my hands have not felt starved of moisture for a long time. So I'd say it's definitely worth a good go!
There is a host of other products in the range including 'No Needle Wrinkle Relaxer' which I'm definitely adding to my list, and 'Cucumber & Peptide Eye Therapy' which sounds like an ideal solution for my tired eyes after a late night and a few too many wines!
The range can be found online at www.matildaarcher.co.uk , with prices starting at a much more bank friendly price than actual surgery - from £7.50/€9.00.
