What’s the Nip+Fab Tummy Fix? It’s a “miracle cream” which supposedly helps people reduce abdominal fat. It’s being touted as an alternative to liposuction and other kinds of “weight reduction” surgery. And, get this, all you gotta do to make the product work is rub the cream on your stomach.
Is the Nip+Fab Tummy Fix effective? Or is it an effin’ scam? We don’t know. But our rule of thumb when it comes to miracle treatments like this is the good old “When it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” We are especially wary of products which teach us to be lazy or which promise easy solutions to challenging problems.
Sure we all want to get rid of excess fat on our tummies and sure no one wants to go under the knife to get that done but will rubbing your stomach with a cream made of “a potent combination of fat-burning ingredients, including citrus aurantium amara – bitter orange extracts – and synephrine” really burn the fat away? Really? Really? Whatever happened to the good old lifting our butts off our comfy seats called physical exercise?
Anyhoo, here’s a Daily Mail report on this “miracle cream”:
Maria Hatzistefanis, the beauty guru behind both Rodial and the cheaper Nip+Fab range, said she was ‘delighted’ with the cream. It contains a potent combination of fat-burning ingredients, including citrus aurantium amara – bitter orange extracts – and synephrine, both of which are known to act as a catalyst in the breakdown of body fat.
More and more women are going under the knife to try to tackle their abdominal fat, which is notoriously hard to shift. Last year the number having surgical tummy tucks jumped by 31 per cent in Britain, with 3,526 operations taking place.
But Mrs Hatzistefanis says she is confident that revolutionary products such as the Tummy Fix will soon mean that women are able to see changes without taking the risk or expense of going under the knife.
‘Women and men want an affordable range that offers real results and an alternative to invasive surgery,’ she said. ‘I’m delighted the range is proving so popular.’
Claire Coleman, who tested the product for the Daily Mail, said: ‘If you can spare the cash and want a pleasant cream to slap on your stomach, it’s probably not going to do you any harm.
‘And, if after six weeks, it’s made you slimmer, well, that’s a bonus, but from what I’ve seen, not guaranteed.’
