I like to think I am in pretty good shape. I try to eat clean foods, and I workout daily but I still have areas that I would love to see a little more improvement on. It seems that no matter what I do, I just can’t get rid of my stubborn leftover ‘baby belly’ that stuck around after having my 4 child (2 years ago). I was so excited to review a few products from Mio to give me a little help in this area!
“We have created this range of incredible bodycare to be the very best in the business, giving you fit skin that can easily cope with all the challenges life throws at us.
We believe the days of superficial beauty are gone. We are living longer and we want to live our lives WELL, feeling good about every age and stage, enjoying being healthy and active. We work on having a fit body, fit muscles even fit minds…
what about our skin?
Yes! We want fit skin too.
So if you are one of the Mio gang, from a marathon runner to a park walker, a swimmer to a spinner, yoga bunny to a pilates pro; if you want strong, smooth, firm gorgeous skin that glows with health, energy and happiness…Mio is for YOU “
I am pretty happy with the body I have these days, but would really love to improve the appearance of my belly. If you’ve had children (and especially multiple children), you know that pregnancy takes a toll on your body and sometimes leaves you with stretch marks, sagging skin, and excess fat. I have been working hard to get my body back to the shape it was in before my pregnancy (pregnancies) by just eating right and exercising, but sometimes a girl just needs a little help!! Well Mio is my help!
I was sent the Skin Tightening Serum, Body shaping lotion, and a dry brush and I have been using these products for the past few weeks. While I don’t see a huge difference yet, I have high hopes that with continuous use of Mio, and also sticking to my workout regimen, I will see an improvement in the way my stomach looks.
I have heard many great things about dry brushing and have been wanting to try it out for a while now. It can improve the appearance of cellulite, helps circulation, and encourages skin repair all with a simple brush. Each day I spend a few minutes brushing my thighs and booty (I have a bit of cellulite going on down there 😉 ), and also my stomach area in hopes that it will reduce the appearance of my stretch marks and boost the skin tightening affect. The Mio dry brush is made of natural boar hair and that is important when looking for a good body brush. It also has a nice handle that makes it easier to work with.
“This is your must have tool for smooth, stimulated and orange-peel free. Our natural boar bristle brush with massage nodules is super simple to use and it really works.
I have been using the Get Waisted Body Shaper for a few weeks each morning, and I have noticed my stomach is a little flatter than it use to be (whether it is my diet or the lotion, who knows…..maybe a combination of both). It may be slight, but I will take it! I know it will definitely take some time (longer than the amount I have been using it for) to give me the best results though so I will keep using it for several more weeks. Anything that helps me with the stubborn layer of fat on my belly gets an ‘A’ in my book! I love that Mio doesn’t claim this to be a miracle worker. They still encourage working out and a healthy diet along with the body shaper to get the best results! I have been focusing on the front lower area of my stomach and also the sides where that darn muffin top likes to hang out ;).
“Want a flatter, firmer less wobbly waist? Get Waisted will help tighten, de-bloat and discourage fat deposits. When exercise alone won’t give you the tummy you want, Get Waisted!
• firms and tones your skin so it feels smooth and taut
• helps eliminate puffiness for a flatter tummy
• works well on love handles, too!”
The Skin Tight tightening body serum is helping me tone and tighten my over-stretched skin. My last pregnancy really did a number on my tummy skin and it is definitely in need of a little help. Exercise is probably not going to do this for me, so I am really happy that I have this serum to help me out. I rub it onto my stomach each morning after I shower and dry brush, and it is a simple way to help get my skin back to the way it use to be!
“Our skin firming serum smoothes, re-texturizes and tightens to whip slack skin back into shape. Works wonders on crepey, overstretched tummies, knees, bumpy backs of arms, thighs.
• tightens and tones crepey skin, perfect post-weight loss
• brightens and plumps for fit, healthy, vibrant skin
• gentle exfoliation will give you ridiculously smooth skin”
“Fit skin is strong, smooth, glowing and healthy. Our power-packed Mio and Mama Mio ranges will give your skin positive energy from top to toe, so you feel confident and gorgeous in your birthday suit… no matter the birthday.”
