WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
The second biggest insecurity for me is the lower half of my body (the first being my skin). So I’m constantly in search for any products that can help me tighten those areas. I first heard about the Sana Esteny Power Tight Ex for hips and legs from Jenny over at Sushi Cat. After reading her review, I was sold in trying this product for myself. Now I think it’s important to note that this product is not going to help you lose weight. The most effective ways to lose weight are still exercise and proper diet. But I do find that this product is really good at making everything seems “tighter”.

The product is a clear orange gel and it does have a huge scent. What I do is after my shower, I use a small amount on various section of my legs. A quarter size for my calves, thighs and then another quarter amount for my hips. Then I would massage each section for like 30 seconds. After doing this, you can really feel the warming sensation so it seems to really “burn” off your fat. It’s not painful, but it will feel like heat radiating from the skin.

I have been using this product for around a month now and I would say that my skin, especially behind my legs, look a lot smoother. A bottle can last me for around a month of daily use. What I also really like about this product is that it’s not sticky and it dries very quickly so I can put on my clothes instantly. I purchased mine from a local supermarket called T&T (For those living in Toronto, you can only find this product from the Kennedy/Hwy 7 location) for $19.99. I know some online stores may sell it for cheaper, so you’re more than welcome to check out the different stores. If you have any other slimming gels that it’s worth a try, please let me know!
