…I was lucky enough to win a full size bottle of Rodial Boob Job over on HQHair’s website and they threw in a sample of Rodial Tummy Tuck so here’s my review of both products…
Before receiving Tummy Tuck and Boob Job, I had heard of the Rodial brand but had never tried any of their products, mainly because they are very ‘science’ based which means the formulations can be quite expensive. ‘Boob Job’ is no exception and is £122.34 for a 100ml bottle!
So what’s it meant to do?
Although this seems a hefty price tag, Rodial has clinical results that prove using this cream on the bust and decollete area will improve firmness and will increase cup size by up to 8.4% in 56 days. I’ve been using the product for about 3 weeks on a daily basis and I’m happy to report this does work! There’s a huge improvement in ‘perkiness’ and my boobs feel much firmer and have increased in size, even after only 21 days! Also I really like the added bonus that my skin is now really soft in comparison to before, when I was just using an everyday body cream.
So about the product…
The packaging is quite nice, it comes in a sleek white bottle with a silver pump action despenser. They have obviously spent a lot more on the formulation inside because the bottles quite minimal but it still looks nice all the same! The actual cream smells lovely, and I say cream but it’s more of a gel consistency which sinks in really easily. The ingredients include Myrrh resin which helps increase the number of fat cells and “enhances fat storage in the bust area” which is how it can increase cup size (Best be careful not to accidently put it on my thighs!) and also Pomegranate and orange oil which is what gives it a really nice fruity smell.
So would I recommend it?
Well if you’re looking for a subtle increase in cup size with the added bonus of really soft skin and added tone then yes! But I don’t know yet how long lasting the effects will be, so be prepared you may have to keep buying it for as long as you want to see the effects. However, it’s certainly a lot less risky and cheaper than cosmetic surgery!
I only received a sample pot of Tummy Tuck so I didn’t use it for the recommended amount of time to see results (8 weeks) as it ran out before then but I used it every day for about 2 weeks. It’s also got a high price tag of £97.87 for 100ml.
Tummy Tuck contains fig extract to help break down fat cells and is meant to decrease the abdominal area by an inch in 8 weeks and has “a long term flattening effect”. Although I didn’t see any results as great as that, I did see a change in my tummy. It looked a lot more toned and although Tummy Tuck is not made specifically to target stretch marks, the change in appearance was extremely good and made them almost disappear. Unfortunately, it is a very expensive way to get rid of stretchmarks (as there are a lot of cheaper products available, for example Bio-Oil which achieves the same result) and it’s not even made to do that job, although it is a nice side effect!
Tummy Tuck is a nice product; it has a light gel consistency which melts into the skin and it smells lovely, a really subtle scent which smells like marzipan and almonds. Yum! I can’t say it would be worth investing in for a flatter tummy but the early results were promising. I have to say I really like the Rodial brand, I just wish I could afford to buy it! x
