Lipo in a Box Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Tuesday, August 03, 2010
Please say hello to my newest sponsor, Lipo in a Box! I know what you're thinking - why did this beautiful petite Korean woman agree to be sponsored by a shapewear company? Well, just so you know, Lipo in a Box isn't just one brand.... It is really three! - Lipo in a Box, Go2 Bras, and Underology Skin Care. But that still doesn't answer your question. Let's just say what you see on this blog doesn't show all my little bumps and lumps because I mask them so perfectly, you see.

Lipo in a Box have basically been featured in every way possible - QVC, Glamour Magazine, MORE, First for Women, "O" Magazine, The TODAY Show, The EARLY Show, The VIEW, and the OPRAH Winfrey Show. (Um, can someone tell me how I can get my blog on all these?!?) They are being featured in InStyle Magazine this month so watch out for that. These products have also been featured twice as New York Times best sellers by former fashion editor for Glamour Magazine, Charla Krupp, as "How Not to Look Old" and "How to Never Look Fat Again." And come on... If you've been watching TV or reading magazines for the past 10 years, you know the world is trying to figure out these secrets. I'm not waiting until I start getting wrinkles and my metabolism collapses on itself. I'm preparing myself now!!

Besides all these big names and features, they also donate a percentage of profit every year to Soles4Souls, the YWCA Nashville Domestic Violence Center, and for breast cancer research. I love businesses that give back to the community.


They sent me a few of their products to review for myself:  the high waist brief with legs, tinted SPF moisturizer, and a hydrating serum.

Even if you're petite like me, you'll probably have a few problem areas. For me, that is my tummy. No matter what I do, I have a little pooch...even when I haven't eaten yet. (No, I'm not pregnant.) When I put the high waist brief with legs on, the first thing I noticed was my pooch was gone!! And then I ate French toast and bacon. Right after I ate, I looked down to evaluate the aftermath. You guessed it - still no pooch!!! You know we are all supposed to hold in our abs and stomach all the time, right? Well, I don't - I let it all loose. This shapewear just answered your problem. You're welcome.

Sorry, no review pics for the shapewear. Trust me, you don't wanna see me that vulnerable. Instead, check out this video that explains it better than I ever could.

I have very sensitive and combination skin and develop allergic reactions after a year's use so even if I think something works, I always have to watch for new products to try, just in case. A lot of moisturizers I've tried either don't moisturize my face enough or they give me oily skin because it's too severe for me. After applying the serum during my morning routine, I found that it moisturized my dry areas and controlled my oily T-zone throughout the day. This is definitely a keeper. Tinted moisturizers was something I've always wanted to work for me. It would be so easy just to put it on and not have to apply more foundation and concealer but my face just won't let me. I have red splotchy areas from past acne scars, current pimples, and around my eyes and nose. It didn't cover the bigger red areas but it did give me an even application before applying my makeup.
