Why: I’m as skeptical as the next beauty product writer, having tried countless creams and lotions promising to miraculously dissolve cellulite. But I’m also an optimist, willing to try most anything at least once.
So for your benefit, dear readers, I’m road testing Skinkiss Caffeine Slimming Tights, the hosiery that promises to reduce cellulite, improve skin’s elasticity, and shrink thighs up to 2 cm, after wearing daily for 28 days. The secret is the caffeine, which is introduced into the fiber of the tights using micro-capsules that act on the skin with the heat from your body. The effect is supposed to last for up to five washings.
The tights come in two colors, nude and black, and retail for around $65 for a three-pack at online retailer TightsPlease.co.uk. At that price, I’m hoping they not only resist snags but truly work wonders… like the BBC radio presenter claims they did. She claimed her thighs shrunk 1 cm in just six days of wearing the tights.
I’ll report the results in a month, but in the meantime, if any of you have tried out this product (or something similar!) share your results in the comment section below.
