Ok so I’m sitting here on my bed and thought “I’m just going to blog on my iPad”. Yes, it sounded like a good idea at first but now that I’m required to type with two fingers and I’ve only typed a paragraph.. I’m too sure I’m keen on doing this too often anymore.
Ok… So I was tweeting just a couple of minutes ago (from when I type this) and so if you were following me, you would have seen my two cents on the Bijinsenmon leg slimming mask already.
About an hour ago, I decided to try on the leg slimming mask I had purchased off Sasa two weeks ago. There was a sale on at the time.. And seeing as Summer is coming along, I thought it’d get some good use. Plus, it’d be great to review as well.
Oh and I also purchased the arm slimming mask which I haven’t tried yet.
First of all, i have to mention that I had some problems with using the mask because the whole packaging is in japanese. I opened the box to find 4 packets so I took the first one out. Turns out to be some plastic sheets with tape around it. #confusion
Then of course I turned to Google and had to type in “how to use bijinsenmon leg mask” to which I found English answers for.
I was told to open up two packets. One which includes the wrap and one which includes the actual slimming mask. Great. I happened to choose the plastic wrap packet – which is why I was so confused.
So I open another packet to find two sheets… which sort of looks like a face mask – its made of cotton and has a liquid – very much like gel soaked into the cotton sheets.
I unwrap the sheets to find that it is a rectangular shape… I place the long side around my calves and the shorter side down my calves. Then I use the plastic sheets from my first packet and wrap around the wet cotton sheets wrapped around my leg. I assume this is used to heat up the product. Easy. I use the sticky tape to stick the sheet around my legs and go onto the other leg.
The wait is easy. For the first 10 minutes, I do not feel a thing. Almost refreshing because of the gel on my legs. Then I take my legs are throw them under my blanket.. with the electric blanket on e highest setting in hope that it could help to speed up the process and possibly enhance the results.
5 minutes later.. I can feel my legs heating up. “Heating up” is probably an understatement. They are BURNING!!!!
My sister walks in to distract whilst talking to me about business. I’m sitting there (with my legs out of the blanket now) and fanning my legs hoping I can fan off the flames. #imdyinginside
15 minutes later.. I can no longer handle it. Instructions say that the recommended usage is 15 minutes, but I always leave facial masks on for longer. This does not differ.
So I’ve had this slimming leg mask on for 30 minutes. It’s stinging and burning my calves. I think it’s working. The heat is meant to stay for 30-60 minutes…
After I pull off the mask, it still felt quite wet. I decided to throw it on my thighs and see if results are the same. I throw the used sheets on my thighs and reuse the plastic wrap to secure the cotton masks on my thighs. I pop my pajamas over the masks and wait.
10 minutes later, I start to feel the heating sensation again. I wonder if it’s just because of my electric blanket?
I turn all my heaters and wait another 5 minutes.
Ok. Done. I’m not going to make the same mistake. If the recommended usage time is 15 minutes, I’m taking it off at 15 minutes!! Learnt that the hard way #murmurs.
I’m feeling the heat sensation again!!! But not as painful as my calves.
I can’t wait to continue using this. I actually think it works with regular use!!!!!!
Next time I use this.. I’m using a measuring tape.. And some pictures.
Stay tuned ladies!
