Angie Rodgers is a busy wife and mom who is starting to worry about looking too much like her mom. "I noticed everything is really loosening up," she said. Angie says saggy skin under the chin runs in her family. Recently her mom had surgery to fix the problem. "So I've been thinking you know I might avoid that ," she said, "and I saw the commercial for this and thought wow."
Not ready to invest thousands for plastic surgery, Angie called us about the Neckline Slimmer. It claims to be the world's first resistance toning system for the neck, chin and face. Developed by man who claims to be a world-renowned physiotherapist, the Neckline Slimmer system promises to tighten the muscles that keep your face and neck looking young and beautiful. "To be honest, I was pretty skeptical of this and I that's why I called you guys," Angie said. "I thought well, let's see if they've tried it before I buy it."
So Angie opened the box, read the directions and started the workout with the first of three coils she will need to use for the next several weeks. Angie put the slimmer under her chin and slowly tilted her head downward, pausing at the end for a couple of seconds, then lifting her head back up. The directions say to complete three sets of 10 repetitions everyday. It is supposed to only take two minutes a day.
Angie said it didn't seem very difficult. "Right now I'm thinking that's no big deal," she said. "I will tell you that I can feel it a little bit." After using it for several days Angie complained that the back of her neck was a little sore. She said that passed after a few weeks.
We looked over the directions several times to see how long you need to use it to get results, to no avail. But the web site says you get a slimmer neck in as little as two weeks. Angie tested it for four weeks, every day for two minutes.
"My kids would laugh but I was determined that I would give it a good effort," she said.
At the end of the four weeks we checked back with Angie. Did see see any improvement? "I might notice a little bit but I did not notice a drastic change that they advertised," she said. Angie said she would not recommend the Neckline Slimmer. Her rating? "Two thumbs down."
