My Week as an Infomercial Addict
WEN, Instyler, BladeBuddy -- should anyone actually own these? One writer sees if her beauty routine can survive on infomercial products alone -- and, in the process, discovers which ones are truly worth owning
While I can't keep that South Park episode out of my head while I'm using it, I have to say that I can "feel the burn" in my arms after only a few minutes.
I also go for broke and try adding the Slim Away belt to increase my workout. This wrap claims to "seal in body heat to help you lose excess water weight" and "works for everyone -- size 50 down to size 22." Clearly I should have read that second part more carefully before I bought the thing, because I'm not quite in that size range (nor is "everyone," but I guess they're taking some liberties with that term). When I try to wrap it around me, it's too big and the zippers won't line up. Looks like I'm hanging on to that water weight after all.
