This has got to be the most interesting one...

Have no idea if it works (since I have yet to receive my order) so I can't say anything for now but what makes it interesting is does a patch like that, stuck onto your body for 8hrs have any effect at all? It does not have much review on site but one said it does but when stop using, the effects wear off. How true? I would not know.
Anyway, I have ordered this LOLO S-Line (30pcs) & Skinny Patch (15pcs), both at S$35.90 each from Rakuten.sg just yesterday for the fun of it and to see if it works. Background information is in Korean language and from what I see, it seems to be a Korean product and a brief Google search proved my assumption was right.
From what I understand, each patch contain some kind of natural herb Sophoricoside (patented) which is targeted to reduce weight and body fat. It also has traces of capsaicin (from red peppers), catechin (from tea, coffee and vegetables) and caffeine (coffee, tea) compound in it.
Each patch is to be placed on the skin (at the desired area) for about 8hrs (recommended at night when sleeping for convenience) and what it does is that during the time it is on, the skin will absorbed the supplements into the body. At the same time, heat can be (or may not be) felt coming from the slimming patch at the area it is on. It was also mention that it is quite adhesive so one should not worry that it would slip off during exercise of bath.
Whether it works or not I guess its up to individual but I reckon with proper diet and good exercise regimen, coupled with a patch there could be optimal results in about 4 weeks of usage. Think about it, you can't just solely depend on a patch entirely and skip everything else and still expect it to deliver results right? If it works that way, all the slimming centres in business would have to shut down by now.
With that said, I will wait for my package to arrive and try it out soon. I may or may not do a review about it since I am just trying it for fun.
