Slendertone Face

Last month I was lucky enough to receive this Slendertone Face device at the #xmasbloggerslunch event that Julie and I organised. The lovely ladies from Slendertone also attended and gave each of us a one-to-one session to talk us through how to use it. Since then I have been trying it out to see if it really does live up to the hype.
Slendertone says it can be used to "tone the muscles, lift the face, rejuvenate your skin," and "94% reported their face felt firmer" after using it. The device, which looks much like a headphones set, uses electrotherapy to exercise the muscles in the face. It targets the facial muscles which stem from the jawline to tone them and combat the natural 'sag' of the ageing process.
The headset part is place at the nape of the neck, while the pads are worn on the cheekbones and parallel to the ears. The control unit, once charged up, is switched into the wire that connects to the headset, and you can control the electronic pulses to the pads.
The first time I used it I put it on speed 18, as suggested during the session, but as I didn't feel much of a difference I pumped it up to 20. You should feel slight muscle movements, like twinges, but only slightly. If it is too strong or uncomfortable the speed may be too high for you. And the control unit automatically times each session for 20 minutes, which is handy. I have been using it while watching TV and barely notice it.
It is recommended to be used three times a week for 12 weeks, and as wanted/ needed thereafter. I will report back after the three months are up, but already I feel like my skin is more radiant, but I can't say if that is solely down to this device as I have been taking better care of my skin as one of my New Year resolutions.
It normally costs £250, but is currently on sale at Boots for £199 from the Slendertone website. It's not cheap, but if it really does work it is a good alternative to other more costly treatments out there.  I have enjoyed using it and will carry on using it to see what the benefits are like after the initial 12-week period.
I would be interested to hear if you have tried this and if you would be tempted to try it out. What do you think of it?
