I’ve only seen info about the Wellbox, so I can’t conclusively say it’s better or worse than Slendertone, but the fact that it costs a whopping £1000 from Harrods doesn’t make me feel inclined to try it.
It’s supposed to restore radiance to the face, by smoothing lines and wrinkles, and purports to rid you of cellulite. It claims it will do this by Tissular Therapy, which they say is the only home-use method of truly stimulating a physiological change in skin. Really?
They say that the rolling penetrates each layer of skin, as well as stimulating blood circulation. I could see that the massaging action would stimulate the skin, and hopefully increase the production of collagen, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t the only device to do this. Massage does stimulate cell reproduction and by working the body you’ll also get the lymph nodes working more efficiently to drain away excess fluid. These will all contribute to a more youthful perkier appearance. But will the Wellbox really produce any long lasting results other than an immediate tightening of the skin?
I doubt it. Spend the money on a holiday and a body brush instead methinks.
