GLAMOUR Tries: We tested the new Slimyonik Air body styler at the D. Thomas Clinic, here’s how it went
There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.
Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.
Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from FaceGym’s Faceshot Electrical Microneedling Device (the skin tool of dreams) to Isle Of Paradise’s Pro-Glow Spray Tan Mister and Larry King Hair Care’s Flyaway With Me Kit. These are the products every influencer/Gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.
Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see? You can shop all of the products seen on GLAMOUR tries in previous weeks down below. Race ya?
“The body styler is sort of like this space suit that you wear on the lower half of your body, and it uses pressure therapy techniques to activate the lymph system, stimulate blood flow to your skin and support your metabolism,” Ali explains. “It’s apparently the equivalent of having 20 hands massaging you at the same time – so let’s give it a go,” she says.
“So here I am looking all Neil Armstrong at the D. Thomas Clinic in London. This is Debbie, the founder, and she’s fitting me with a nasal cannula which provides purified air and boosts your oxygen intake by up to 40%,” says Ali.
