Testing a Chinup Mask!


Morning everyone.  Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you find today's blog interesting, not only that it may give you a little chuckle.

I was recently contacted by Chinup Mask, asking if I'd be interested in receiving a sample to try.
Well you can bet this over fifty blogger said yes straight away!  After all some of us need all the help we can get - lol!

Chinup Mask* is a 30 minute face mask that you can wear in the comfort of your own home, claiming to reduce the appearance of double chins, sagging jowls and the dreadful turkey neck in minutes, but lasting for days.
Chinup Mask* state and I quote
"Using 5 of the best cosmetic ingredients, 10 natural fruit extracts and our very own patent-pending Skintronics serum, Chinup Mask* is designed and produced to provide maximum lifting and smoothing effect to your chin, neck and jawline."



I had to see how this worked and couldn't wait to start the trial.
In the sample pack was an instruction leaflet, tape measure,  the sachet with the serum mask, along with the slimming band.

Asking Esther Ruby to take photographs for me, I set about gaining a better looking chin and neck.

Firstly taking measurements, this was rather difficult so I was glad Esther was there to help, we registered my measurements;
Starting from ear to ear I measured around the chin, my reading of 25cm was taken,
The second again from one ear to the other gave 21.5cm.



Now to open the sealed sachet.
My first impression was of a large baby wipe with cup-out area which went up towards the ears.
It felt squidgy and somewhat slimy, but didn't have any offensive smell which is always a good thing.
I placed the mask upon my chin and neck smoothing out the bubbles that had formed between the mask and my skin. 




Next it was time to put the band around my head and secured tightly with the Velcro fastening, two openings encircled my ears, this felt better as I could hear and it didn't feel uncomfortable.


This I left on for about 35/40 minutes, and after the initial muffled chuckles from me and the rather louder laughs from Esther had subsided I relaxed on a sunbed with my Kindle letting the serum soak into my chin and neck. 
You are recommended to use as little jaw movement as possible to obtain the best results.  Maybe the best time to use the mask would be chilling in a hot bath - what joy - that'll be me next time I use mine!

The warming sensation is totally normal - that's how you know it's working.  I thought it may have felt itchy but not at all!  If anything it was a calming feeling.



Once thirty five minutes had elapsed I removed the band and mask, gently rubbing in any of the excess serum - this soaked in quickly so there was no need to wash or wipe anything off.


Measuring again I was pleasantly surprised to read I'd reduced both measurements by 1/2 cm!!! 
My face felt and looked tighter and firmer, wow, I hadn't expected that!


I feel using the Chinup Mask frequently will give an even better outcome, & now I know exactly how easy it is to use I'll be happily trying this out again - very soon!  What do you think?


Two treatments start at £29.95 including the slimming band, with seven treatments costing £49.95.  Top up sachets are £59.95, you can also buy a replacement band for just under £8.  All this is far cheaper than going under the knife and much less invasive - I think I know what I'd prefer!

You can see plenty of other results over on Chinup Mask IG why not pop over to check them out?

Whilst I chillaxing with my chinup mask I was wearing silky floral robe with matching shorts and cami top both from George @ Asda Similar here and similar here.

  6. Wow what fun and, yes, the camera shows a difference which doesn't often show in pics. The mask looked easy and relaxing and as Laurie pointed out, quite a treat for those unmasked too! How many days did it last for you, did you measure again?
    Pretty nightwear too, darling!
