Review: Inner Arm Shaping Cream by Pupa. Can a cream help banish bingo wings?

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

Can a cream really help salvage wobbly arms?

Its that time of year when we should be thinking about wearing sleeveless dresses and swimwear. But what if we feel self-conscious about our upper arms, can a product help firm our inner arms and banish the bingo wing effect?
Pupa claims to be an intensive cosmetic treatment that firms and tones skin giving a sculpted arms effect. Does it work?
Well,my skin certainly feels smoother after 2 weeks of daily use. Has it banished my bingo wings? Well. I think it would be impossible for any cream or treatment to do that. I do think that just having my skin feel smoother makes me feel more comfortable exposing my arms, although to be honest I’ve always been of the opinion that if people don’t like what they see they don’t have to look! It has made me more aware that I should be upping my exercise regime , and I do believe that the Pupa cream would be the icing on the cake in terms of improving the appearance of my upper arms. It certainly seems to be more effective than everyday body lotion.

What are the active ingredients wich make it effective in tackling bingo wings?

Pupa has a triple action formula:
1. GYM 2 Complex which strengthens and compacts the structure of the skin tissue – skin gradually appears more youthful and toned.
2. R-model molecule fights against fat and liquid storage, improving skin firmness.
3. Arms are wrapped in a water-soluble polymer after each application which acts as an elastic film making the skin look instantly firmer.

Would I recommend to my friends?
I would definitely recommend if you felt that your everyday body lotion was having little effect in terms of helping to smooth and even out the skin tone of your upper arms. You have to be prepared to use consistemtly to see the cream make a difference. To see optimum results you need to use twice a day for eight weeks. I think Pupa Inner Arm Shaping Cream does make a difference, but does not replace a healthy diet and exercise programme.
