What’s the first thing that pops in your mind when I say VLCC? Most associate them with weight loss hoardings seen across the city or even for their well-known beauty products found at select retail outlets. However, there is much more to the brand than what we know, as I discovered for myself.
VLCC has a very holistic and practical approach towards the whole mystery of slimming down and maintaining a healthy body.
I got the opportunity to try out one of their slimming sessions called Tei machine that focuses on fat loss from thighs, arms and stomach area.
This was my first visit, and to begin with, I was asked to share my brief medical history and my lifestyle with their wellness counsellor. Once she had all details noted down, she began explaining to me on how VLCC works on setting smaller weight loss targets which make it easier for clients to achieve. Also, the monitoring of same is done week on week basis so that one is aware of how and what exactly is helping them lose weight.
Experts and counsellors at VLCC ensure to design a healthy mix of passive treatments such as Tei along with a diet plan to achieve desired goals.
Tei Treatment- My Experience
Prior to the treatment, my weight was checked on their Body Composition Analysis (BCA) Machine. The machine also calculates metabolism rate, weight in specific areas and the BMI which is calculated keeping in mind the weight and height.
This session is completely private and done in a closed room. Gel slathered straps were attached to targeted areas. What Tei machine does is help in loosening fat from the areas and increasing the metabolic rate. In the forty-five minutes of the session the straps emitted heat at various degrees. Along with variating degrees of heat the straps also vibrates. These vibrations like heat variate the pattern to maximize fat loss.
The treatment rooms are equipped with televisions and are very relaxing. Use of mobile phones is permitted or one can even choose to catch up on some much needed sleep while in session.
Post treatment the weight analysis is done again. This helps in drawing comparisons pre-& post sessions.
There aren’t sudden changes in the weight post the sessions but these help in increasing metabolic rate that promotes fat loss. For someone who has a slower

I am a big fan of Aloe vera based products. My gran use to pluck fresh aloe from our garden and slather it's gel on my face. Can't get those days back but I found an alternative in the form of Dermal Aloe Vera gel 💚 More on this product soon on the blog! Thanks @myskinchoice for introducing me to this brand. They have leading Korean brands at super reasonable prices and free shipping for all orders above Aed150. #koreanbeauty

We #women multitask all the time..isn't it? So why not pamper yourself a bit while binge watching your favorite series or even while reading a book? 😀 I may have found you some products that can help you hydrate your skin, make you look gorgeous & are super budget friendly! Check out my blog for the mini haul from @myskinchoice on the blog now! (Link in bio) #pamper #TLC
I generally use masks on weekends as I get time to multitask and relax too. So I used this mask sheet to see the results. It contains Bamboo essence but honestly the result was just about okay. My skin did feel tighter for a while but the effects wear off soon. I am guessing it is because maybe the product is too natural and not been messed with. Try it if you have a normal skin type, mine is combination skin and this mask didn’t help. However it totally doesn’t hurt to try out as its super budget friendly and has minimal side effects.
How many of you have tried gel nail paints? I really love the finish of the gel manicures but hate when the nail starts growing and I have to visit a salon to get the gel removed. Also the cost for gel nails is anywhere between 150-300aed (includes removing process). if you are looking for a budget friendly solution to this then read along to discover Kiss Gel Nail varnishes.
After personally testing all the shades I am declaring Kiss gel nail varnish as the best in drugstore range. The colors are intense and one coat is thick enough but I would recommend two coats if it’s a lighter shade. I am a total sucker for pastel shades so when I got my hands on these I was thrilled to try them all and see how they look. The varnishes do not chip off and the top coat from Kiss USA too is really strong too. My nails were growing but the varnish wasn’t off which is a good thing.
Here’s how the nail looks after two coats and top coat:
