As women age the first area to show the advanced signs of damage and time is the neck area. Skinn research shows that the neck area ages in one of two ways: Type A women experience thinning, collapsing brittle skin on the neck that becomes dry and sinks with diminished elasticity (“chicken neck”), or Type B women experience a heavier full neck (“double chin”). Both types of aging necks experience age spots and lines. Skinn responds with two custom formulas in serum strength creams for Type A or Type B aging.
I fall into the Type B category. For some reason, even though I am not overweight, I have a double chin. Out of all the things I wish I could change about my face, I would love to get rid of my double chin the most. While it’s not noticeable to everyone that walks by me, it’s always been something that has bothered me. I’ve had a double chin since I was like 10 years old… And like I said, I’ve never been a heavy girl. I used to be a professional dancer and weighed 98 pounds. So why I have a double chin is beyond me… I’ve never been able to figure it out.
In an effort to combat the unnecessary fullness under my chin, I decided to try Chin-Up Firm, Lift and Tone from Skinn.
I got Type B which is a streamlining cream for heavier necks and fuller jaw lines that was specifically created with Ovaliss™ complex, an advanced coconut extract shown to strengthen, tighten and help burn excess fat deposits that accumulate on the neck area. Renovage™ will help slow down the aging process on heavier necks by 33% and help to diminish age spots and lines. The result is a more streamlined, less full, firmer looking neck and jaw line.
I started using it in May 2009. Click here to read my initial post.
I used it 2x daily for about 6 weeks and then tapered off to about 2-4 times a week. It’s a lightweight cream that quickly soaks into skin without leaving it greasy or oily. And I love how it smells… I don’t think “smell” is even an appropriate word here. It’s a lovely fragrance. Just very earthy and natural… like a Spring meadow. The scent alone makes me want to apply it constantly.
So here’s the verdict. It works.
I’m not going to lie to you. It’s not totally amazing… like chin reduction surgery… I mean, my neck doesn’t look fabulous all of a sudden, but it does look better and that’s more than I can say for anything else I’ve put on my neck over the years. There is definitely less fat.
Poolside shots are always pretty unflattering… And if you checked out my less than flattering “before” picture in my initial post, you can see that the Chin-Up Cream did make a noticeable difference… No, it’s not just the position of my neck. If I showed you a ton of pics, you’d totally agree that there is a noticeable difference.
And I should also add, that I haven’t gained or lost any weight at all between the 2 pictures which were taken about 4 months apart.
It’s not a miracle worker. It won’t totally eliminate your double chin overnight. I think if you are of a reasonable weight and BMI and your double chin is from water weight or a small amount of fat, then this product will work for you. If you have a double chin because you are overweight, then this product won’t do much for you. You just need to lose those extra pounds and get healthy!
