Slim & Fit #2 - Dangerous

Slim & Fit #2
Dangerous .

Have you ever wanted to slim down , but you're just too lazy to work out 3-4 days a week ?
How about not even having the time to give yourself a relaxation exercise ?
I have .

And , I learnt the hard way that sometimes ; long-cuts are better than short-cuts .
For all the people that wants to try slimming foods and gels , I have no personal experience about the flipside . However , I'll share with you about this brand of SLIMMING PATCHES .

Seen this before ?

I have . This is what the one that I ordered looks like when I received it :

Mine is on the right .
Well , the instructions given was to leave it on your navel / thighs / arms overnight and remove them when you're awake . I have stomach problems , and I don't really mind how my arms looks like ; so I pasted one of each of my inner thighs .
However , one of the patches on my right thigh fell off at night ( it wasn't very sticky at all ) . The next morning , my left thigh felt rather itchy ; and , I found rashes .
The following image may make some people feel slightly uncomfortable , just scroll over it .
This is somewhat how it looks like for the first few months .
You survived the picture ! Okay , sorry ><
It was really itchy . And I went to search google ; and this is what one of the websites wrote .
Note: skin abnormalities or the use of the phenomenon of skin irritation, please stop using it immediately.

So I figured that I've an allergic reaction to it , and after a while ; I found out that other people are also having this allergic effect . Thus , I decided to share it to warn people .
This is my thigh now ; 5 months after I used the patch / 6th June 2013  .
I'm not trying to stop anyone from buying the slimming products ; or even other types of items . I'm just trying to warn that you have to be careful while using them .
If you know what ingredients is in the product , and you are not allergic to them ; use them by all means :) However , if you are unsure whether you are allergic to any of the ingredients , I advise you to do a skin irritation test / just avoid using the product .
It still goes without saying ; exercise and a healthy diet is the best way to STAY HEALTHY , and possibly even lose a few kilos ? That , I stand by it !
xoxo ,
NOTE : I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN , which is probably why I have this reaction . There are many people that used it without any problems , in the end ; it's still up to you .
