i just finished my fourth bottle (in 4 years) of this one and will start my fifth. to be frank, i didn't use this daily but more of "when i felt like it" which turns out to be on an average of 1 bottle (250ml/8.6 oz) per year.
to start off, this serum promises to burn and discharge fat, including cellulite. Kose describes this product as a "super form net formula formulation with refreshing after-feel" that "hugs sagging skin to tighten and maintain firmness."
i really wasn't so sure how i was going to give a review on this one as it's quite difficult to check/quantify whether or not it has delivered on all its claims especially as fat and cellulite are really dependent on so many variable and factors.
i guess will just start off by saying that this really gives you a minty refreshingly hot/cold feeling after you apply it. it does become addicting (if you like that cool feeling products can give). the sensation was something i enjoyed so much that sometimes i made this into a whole body serum as opposed to how i usually use it which was just for my buttocks, thighs and tummy area. the feeling lasts for around 20-30 minutes (30-40 if you apply it after exfoliation--in fact the "minty feel" is heightened if used after exfoliation).
as to the promise that it "hugs sagging skin," i didn't feel anything remotely to this or even feel a tightening effect. what i did feel was that the area with the serum was sooo super soft and silky. also, i noticed that the complexion of skin i used it on became so much more even and light (i noticed this around the third bottle i used).
as i said earlier, this product is really hard to judge on its claims that it burns fat and cellulite but suffice to say after giving birth to 3 girls (aged 7,5 and 2), this gives me a bit of peace (psychologically speaking at least) that i am doing something about my body other than diet and exercise. i still have cellulite and fat on my buttocks and inner thighs but i have been told by my sisters that my thighs and butt haven't changed much since 8 years ago. i take this as a good thing considering the fact that i've given birth to 3 girls (aged 7,5 and 2) and i share the credit to this serum.
when i finish my fifth, will definitely purchase my 6th bottle!
p.s. do not use this to take the place of massage oil. i experimented one time and i had a masseuse use this instead of oil and what happened was it all rubbed off and you end up with sticky rubbery gunk all over your body.
