I was at my local Sephora just last night and saw Fat Girl Six Pack ($38.00) in the Hot Now case and thought to myself, “Does this really work? Why do we have to label things “fat” and “skinny”?” I still use Bliss‘ That’s Incredi-‘peel’! Spa-Resurfacing Glycolic Resurfacing Pads, so can I really firm up my tummy that is about twenty pounds overweight just by using this product? I don’t even know where my abs are! When I got home, I saw a Bliss package and can you guess what was in it to review?
I decided to delve in and sample it because I love Katie Welch, and even though I am opposed to using words like “fat,” “chubby,” and “skinny” they are being used every day in our society and now on a multitude of beauty products — and Bliss is known for its cheeky names and verbiage. That’s part of why Bliss is Bliss, and I have found that their products work for me.
I must confess I stared down at the bottle for quite some time and wondered if I should ask for it to be reviewed by another staff writer, but then I decided, “Fat Girl Six Pack, I need you!” So, I did what the instructions said and pumped the gel onto my “ab” area via the built-in nubbed applicator top and massaged it in for 20-30 seconds. I felt a cooling sensation right away and wondered if it was the menthol in the product. Other ingredients include caffeine to firm; creatine to release energy to the cells; oat kernel extract for immediate firming; latex-rich manilkara tree extract to boost elasticity and a special botanical blend to lift the area.
Ten minutes after application and I did feel like it was doing something. I hope it’s firming and if I am pleased with the results, I shall let you see a sneak peek of a before and after photo. Just not now! Of course, this cannot work unless a healthy diet is in conjunction; I would imagine that regular exercising would boost results?! Bliss even states that on the outer packaging. This is a firming and tummy-toning gel, not an elixir for weight loss.
Available EXCLUSIVELY at Sephora. If it works on me, I promise to spread the love in a big way! Since its July launch, have any of our readers out there tried this product?
