Bee Sexy Slimming Capsules Review

After taking Slimina for roughly three months [with some weeks of rest in between] and a year of rest from my never-ending quest for an effective weight management solution, I found Bee Sexy. Yeah, yeah, I know exercise and proper diet is the best combination for that, blah blah blah. I’ve tried that too. It didn’t work because there were factors in my budgeted and busy lifestyle in a third world country AT THAT TIME that just couldn’t make it happen.

Slimina worked for me for a month. I drastically lost 12 kgs in a month taking them coupled with exercise. When I was in my second bottle, it didn’t work as much. My hunger pangs were back with a vengeance and I was feeling tired and sluggish. It was totally unlike my first bottle that I began to wonder if the Slimina bottle I purchased the second time was a fake. Or that my body was getting immune to the effects of Slimina. I finished the second bottle with me gaining at least a quarter of the weight I lost during my first bottle.  I gave a month’s rest and ordered my third bottle. Still, I was experiencing the same thing as that with my second bottle of Slimina and steadily gaining my lost weight back. I confided with a friend who is also a fellow Slimina user about it. It was from her that I learned that she too gained her weight back even while taking Slimina.  She told me that she wrote Magic Potions (PH distributor of Slimina) about it. The gist of what Magic Potions’ reply to her letter was to give Slimina a rest for at least a month and somehow “admitted” that there were batches of Slimina bottles that were not as effective as the rest. Magic Potions then suggested to her to give Bee Sexy a try. She did. It worked for her and recommended me to try Bee Sexy too. And so I did. 🙂 It really did work, too. I only ordered one pack (30 foil packed capsules good for one month) as I find that I can regulate my weight from another method without having to rely on a pill. (I went on a Keto diet which I’ll probably write here next time soon) Until now though, my friend continues to take Bee Sexy and endorses them to anyone who asks.

Pros:

  • suppresses your appetite thereby manages your weight

Cons:

  • diuretic
  • requires you to drink liquid often
  • pricey
  • not really sure of the ingredients (whether what is written in the package is really what’s inside the capsules (feeling paranoid as I’m getting older)

Nu Skin/Pharmanex Lifepak’s Review

When I went home to Cebu City last week, my closest first cousin and I had dinner and coffee together and were catching up on news about our lives since we last saw each other. Anyways, during our coffee she told me about this new supplement she is taking. She spoke very highly of this product–Nu Skin/Pharmanex Lifepak and told me that our mutual friends who are also taking this supplement all look and feel great. And my cousin did really looked great.  So naturally, my interest was peaked. I want to try the product so I decided to google the product reviews especially that this particular product costs P3300(Philippine peso)  or roughly around $77 (US dollars) for a 30 day worth of food supplements.  To my dismay,  i didn’t find any review for this particular product. But despite of that, I went ahead and bought this food supplement anyway.  I mean, my cousin looked great and she swore of the product’s efficacy. She is a good enough review of the product for me anyway.

Pharmanex Lifepak Food Supplement

You're to take this 4 caps at the same time

The lack of review of this product made me decide to make a review myself. This is my 3rd day of taking the product and I can’t see or feel any changes in my state of wellbeing. I will be updating this blog after four days since I’ll be making an update every week for a month.

On my 5th day of taking Pharmanex Lifepak I had a severe allergic rhinitis. I’m not saying my taking these vits triggered the allergies I’m just noting that my taking the vitamins didn’t in any way lessen the effects of my allergic rhinitis.

 

Oct. 2 – Week 1

Today is my 9th day of taking the vitamins and I noticed that ever since I started taking them, I have regular bowel movement and I don’t feel as tired and sleepy as I did before taking the food supplements.

 

October 10 – Week 2

I don’t really have anything to tell. I can’t see any changes at all. I still look the same. My skin didn’t get any clearer and my appetite is still the same. I must say that I survived a whole week without taking puffs on my seretide inhaler without a severe asthma attack, just some minor ones like feeling slight congestion on my chest. (I was supposed to take seretide puffs 2x in the morning and 2x on the evenings everyday.)

More update next week 🙂

I finished my 1 pack of Lifepak supplements. Although I don’t feel and see any different at all, I must say that I didn’t suffer asthma attacks or some difficulty of breathing while taking this supplements. Considering that I’m not religious with my getting puffs on my maintenance of seretide everyday, I think that is some sort of achievement, and I’m giving credit to Lifepak’s food supplements. Other than my regular bowel movement and lessening of frequency with my recurrent yet sporadic asthma attacks, I can’t see or feel any major difference in my wellbeing and appearance. I mean for the money that I paid for it, I kind of expected more from the product. Like, I don’t know– a miracle, perhaps? Hehe It’s just that a regular, middle income person like me do not shell out this amount of money for just a “regular” food supplement. I had expected something more. My skin didn’t get any clearer and I didn’t look younger than I had hoped I would. This product is good–no doubt about it. But the question is, would I use it regularly? Yes, if I have the money to “maintain” a food supplement as costly as this one. All I’m saying is that this product is exactly what it is–a food supplement. But, there are many food supplements that are as effective but a lot less costlier than Lifepak’s. I am beginning to think that whilst it’s probably true my cousin is taking this food supplement, she is also taking something else that made her look great– a beauty secret that she didn’t share with me.
