Every girl has insecurities, that includes me. I’ve been blessed with relatively good genes and never really had concerns about slimming down… until now. Since passing the age of 30 and having had two major surgeries to my abdoment, I admit that I cannot wear a bikini without feeling a little insecure. Now, my bulging tummy is one of my biggest concerns and when 2B Alternative contacted me to give the Into Arm & Body a try, I jumped at the chance! I’ve heard that its all the rage in Asia, especially in Hong Kong and amongst the Chinese community worldwide. No harm giving it a go and besides, we’re planning a vacation soon, better prepare for that bikini body!
In the past, body purifying products would use Chilli or Ginger extract which can cause skin irritation and does nothing to your body! 2B does not use those old methods, instead, it uses the Heat Deep Penetrating (HDP) formula which activates Garcinia Cambogia, Caffine and Camitine to reach and burn fat cells at a faster rate, removes stubborn fats, thick muscles and defines your waist. The HDP effect will make you feel warm after 3 to 5 minutes of application. The heat can be adjusted according to how much product you apply.

Verdict: I was able to test it out over a period of 2 weeks every night after each shower with the methods I’ve stated above and here are the results.
A difference of 1.5cm for Arm and 1.5cm for Tummy.
I squeezed quite a generous amount to my tummy since this area’s a bigger concern (estimate SG 50 cents coin size) and slightly lesser on my arms (estimate SG 20 cents coin size each). You can apply more if you can take the heat. I felt more burning sensation on my arms compared to my tummy maybe because I have stubborn fats there!
Not too bad considering I did not exercise due to my wisdom tooth extraction and have not started with my waist training for the purpose of this experiment. But I walk a great deal due to the nature of my job, just not with the cream on obviously. To be honest, I was quite worried that I wouldn’t see a difference or might even gain weight at the rate I was eating (I’m the rare few who still had an appetite despite removing my wisdom tooth) and not going for my regular runs, lol! Thank goodness there was! My advice is if you would like to see faster results, apply the cream on diligently every night and exercise in the day and you would burn more fats!
