I’m a huge fan of the treatments at Bliss Spa at the W Hong Kong and always leave with a massive smile on my face. With summer fast approaching and junk invites landing in my inbox I decided to try out the Fat Girl Slim treatment before hitting the beach. The 75-minute massage and wrap claims to be a lifesaver if you plan on donning something tight or a skimpy two-piece, and I wanted to see if it lived up to the hype. Read on to find out all about this famous treatment and how you can win one too!
Located high up in the W Hong Kong in Kowloon, Bliss is a modern and relaxing haven in Hong Kong and I love everything about it. Many of the therapists, including Joyce who did my treatment, have been with the spa since the day it opened and are all highly trained and personable. After chilling out in the steam room and eating a brownie from the awesome mini buffet, I headed into the pristine treatment room ready for the slimming process to commence.
‘Fat Girl Slim’ started off with therapeutic dry brushing to encourage lymphatic circulation and eliminate the build up of toxins. Bliss “Shrink” Oil made from South African grapefruit was then massaged all over my body before a warm seaweed mask was applied to my thighs, stomach and bum. I was then wrapped in cling film and towels for 25 minutes to literally sweat off some inches while my head was gently massaged. I normally find it tough to stay still for over an hour, but the time flew during the treatment and I wanted the head massage to last forever!
After the rubbery seaweed mask was peeled off, Joyce massaged my love handles with ‘Love Handler’, a lotion designed to eliminate excess baggage… literally. It was minty and tingled slightly thanks to the lipid release booster and amino acids that promised to boost cellular metabolism and stimulate circulation. My tummy was then massaged with ‘Fat Girl Sixpack’ cream while the bestselling ‘Fat Girl Slim’ lotion was massaged into my hips and thighs.
Caffeine is the main ingredient in both of these potions and they worked hard for hours after the treatment to enhance fat metabolism while reducing the appearance of cellulite. I felt a tingling sensation for about five minutes after the cream was applied as it got to work on my trouble spots.
So, did the treatment work? In a nutshell yes. My skin was smoother, firmer and glowing. I didn’t drop a dress size but my butt and thighs looked a lot more bikini ready than when I walked into the spa 75 minutes earlier and I was happy with the results. I purchased the ‘Fat Girl Slim’ cream as I left because everyone in the beauty industry raves about it and I wanted to continue feeling smooth and sparkly at home. Bliss are also doing a special ‘Shake It Off‘ promotion for the summer if you’re looking to ramp up your beauty regime!
