FatGirlSlim Lean Machine ($145.00) is the first spa-powered body contouring system in the “FatGirl” family. This new machine offers a super-effective, vacuum-assisted massage action to enhance the penetration of the FatGirlSlim Firming Cream ($36.00; my favorite Bliss body cream being their Fat Girl Six Pack tummy-toning gel).

The 4-in-1 vacuum massage works as follows:
