Skin Tight Toning Serum: Shrink Wrap For Your Arms

I have been a Personal Shopper for quite a number of years, and have listened with compassion, to all the womanly woes that drive clients to distraction about their perceived body flaws.

A beautifully cut dress or jacket can camouflage a multitude of sins, like a thick waist or a bit of tummy bulge, which is a blessing.  Designers, however, also have a penchant for dresses without sleeves.I get it... I do.  Stick a sleeve on a chic sheath and all you are missing is a string of gumball pearls to complete your ensemble Mrs. Bush .  Sleeveless is both tidy and timeless.  But what happens when time takes its toll on the delicate upper arm area??? Generally, a cardigan. Any other options???  Yes.

For starters, free weights.  That old adage about not using heavy weights to avoid bulking up?  Wrong!  That is precisely what you want to do now. I was recently asked  by a teenage male trainer at Equinox what my fitness goals are.  I'm not sure what he was expecting for the answer, but the only thing I did was point to my upper arm.  His recommendation?  Amp up the weights, considerably.  That was a little over a month ago and I can fully attest to its efficacy.  Try it!  You will be pleasantly surprised how empowering it is and how quickly your tone improves as your strength builds.

Anything else?  Yes!  When I received information about Mama Mio's new Skin Tightening Toning Serum, ($56) "your new gym for slack skin", I quickly devoured it and immediately asked to sample it.

I love Mama Mio Skincare.  Its creators, 4 beauty experts, basically create products that they want for themselves.  They load all of the their products with highly potent ingredients that get results and take great care to make sure all their products smell good and are pleasurable to use. Here is what is Skin Tight Toning Serum contains:

Meet the miracle workers:

Papaya Enzyme exfoliates to soften and gentley dissolve the 'cement' that holds dead skin cells on the surface, bringing new young cells to the skins surface.

Hyaluronic Acid super-hydrates and plumps by smoothing the surface from below for juicy, younger-looking skin.

Soy Protein Complex tightens the surface of the skin, 'ironing out' slack skin for an instant fix.

Uniprosyn is an anti-ageing super-blend of Oat Protein, ATP and Vitamin B3 Provein in laboratory testing to decrease skin crepyness by reducing the depth of wrinkles and boosting protein production in the skin. Typically found in serious eye creams.

It has a very wet consistency, which somehow surprised kind of squirts, so be wary when you pump.
Mama Mio suggests using Skin Tight once or twice daily, any where that you wish to tighten skin, arms, knees, even your face. 

While the Soy Protein Complex helps act as an instant tightener,  the Mama Mio Mavens encourage patience!  Best results will be achieved after 30 days, with upkeep thereafter 3 times a week. I'm two weeks in and I am hopeful that the smoother, nourished skin I'm seeing will  continue to "lift, tighten and tone".

The Mavens think "lift, tighten and tone are three of the sweetest words a girl can hear".  Personally, I think they are the three sweetest words a girl can see.



  1. Hi Debbie,
    How long would you say the container last for?
    Thanks in Advance,
    Toronto, Canada

  2. Hi Janice,
    I still have some left...I used it twice daily for over a month. I have really stepped up my arm work and the amount of weights I lift. I definitely see a huge change...they are probably more toned than at any time in my life. It is hard to say if the shrink wrap played a part or not. It definitely did not hurt!!!


  3. Hi Debbie,

    What weights were you using to get that result for your arms and you say it only took one month to see a difference?


  4. Hi Linda,
    I do bi cep curls, using an 18 lb weighted bar, 3 sets of slow reps of 12, 3 times a week. The skin that was slackened looks better because muscle as filled it in. I also use whatever unused anti aging creams I have on my arms every night. Certainly cant hurt!


  5. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?
