Women in the UK are going bananas for a cream that they claim reduces the appearance and size of cankles. (Cankles, if you're out of the loop, are ankles that are every bit as thick of your calves.)
It's called Nip + Fab, and it's actually made to be used on tummies. But women who've used it on their cankles (whose idea was that, anyway?) say it has reduced the appearance of their ankle size as well.
Find out how to get your own tube, straight from England, and how much it'll cost ya, after the jump.
Nip + Fab Tummy Fix is available straight from the company for £19.25, and they will ship the cream around the world. In American dollars, that's about $30.82 before shipping and handling.
Not bad if it really does get rid of cankles.
Somehow, though, I'm skeptical.
Still, a lot of women out there want to put this cankle cream to the test. According to the Daily Mail, Nip + Fab says sales have risen by 125 percent this week alone.
Wondering how the cream supposedly works? Here's what the website has to say:
AmaraShape is a highly effective combination of fat burning actives to refine body contours such as waist, thighs, buttocks, and hips. The active substances are caffeine and synephrine. Both ingredients activate the breakdown of lipids in fat cells of the adipose tissue (body fat).
A human study with AmaraShape showed (after 6 weeks’ treatment)
• abdominal girth was reduced by 2.5 cm
• skin smoothness was increased by + 23%
Well, 2.5 cm isn't much ... but perhaps it's more noticeable when it's your ankles that are affected.
I don't think I'll be investing in Nip + Fab any time soon, but what about you?
Would you buy this product?
