Hopefully The Firminator will become my new hero!!

The past couple of weeks, I've started to realise if I want to lose weight/ tone up, I gotta do something about it! I've started going to Zumba between 4-6 times a week which I LOVE, and Thai Boxing once a week. I'm trrrrying to eat healthy, but I'm just not very good at it!

So, on my last (dangerous) journey to Boots, I meandered over to the Soap & Glory section and saw it was on 3 for 2 (veeery dangerous). After quickly checking the Boots website for reviews, I decided to buy The Firminator Body Contouring Gel.

It has received great reviews, people saying it firms them up after just one use! The idea of it is as follows:

Soooo... no idea what most of that means. But the general idea is you massage it into areas that need firmed up twice a day, and after 56 days (roughly 2 months), you should be all nice and toned!! I'm a liiiiittle bit sceptical, but two months takes me up to about Christmas so I'm going to give it a go. It says it works better alongside exercise, so that's good.

It looks like this:

A cool feeling gel that once you've rubbed in all the areas you want to tone up, starts to tingle a bit so it does feel like it's doing something! It's quite pricey at £10.21 as reviews say you go through bottles quickly, but with 3 for 2 deals usually on it works out a bit better.

I'm going to try it on my thighs, tummy and upper arms. I'll let you know how I get on!

P.S. here's some more nail art I did today.. =p

These are my 'city lights' falsies, don't know why I picked such big nails!!

I thought I'd do something a bit more simplistic, just a monchrome look with a colour pop. I didn't have any tape to do straight lines so they're a bit wobbly!!

Took my Shellac off and tried some fruit on my nails... a lime, strawberry, orange, watermelon and lemon!

Hope you like!

  1. WOW! Your nails are AMAZING!!! And you are so right about the Hough family thing (Footloose) it is amazing where they find these people, honestly i cant stand the lead role, Zac would of been PERFECT for that role! Iv been to see it at the thearte also and loved it :) lots of love xox

  2. Aw thank you! I'm finding it quite therapautic lol!

    I'm a bit nervous to see it now, the theatre version is sooo good, I just love it. I'm always nervous when they remake classics but if Zac Efron was in it it might have calmed me down a wee bit!! =p

    Think I'll be sticking to going to see Lion King 3D this week, eee! <3

  3. I'd be really interested to know how you get on with the gel Lauren, I'd love to try something to help tone up my upper arms, alongside excersise. :)

    Loving the nail art!
