Judy doing a demo on the arms of a volunteer and she said that it will reduce the size for aleast 2cm.
First she spread the cream and massgae it upwards towards your armpit .. this will increase blood circulation while releasing the toxin thru the lymph nodes(under the armpit) and to speed up the process... she wrap her arms with cling wrap (remember not too wrap it too tight.. you wanna speed up the blood circulation not stopping it!) and let her "steam" for about 5-10mins.

Result: It did reduce about 2cm (But according to what I know... "steaming" the body with cling wrap normally will make you loose the water near the surface of the skin, it's normal to loose at least 1cm or more depending on each body type.. and it will gain back once the skin cool down or any you drink some water. ) I believe with this cream, it will burn off the extra fats off your arms and remain it that way after using it "long term" (Just have to be hardworking and not stop using it half way thru the "bottle")

She cut the patch sheet into afew long strips and paste in around the volunteer belly button.

Doing a demo on the volunteer on using the 3 steps series with some facial massage.


Both the serum and cream feel abit sticky and hard to absorb on the back of my hand.. I guess the Hyaluronate might be too rich in this series. (Might be too rich for combination to oily skin) Do pop by the counter to try it out, to see whether you like the texture. BUT, the cleansing oil sound so good right? I LOVE trying cleansing oil! kekekke

Well, that's all for now,  will be doing a review on the products I received soon.
