New Year, New You!

I really can’t say enough good things about Mama Mio products, for how much I sing their praise people probably think I have stock in the company. I have used their products in the past and am always pleasantly surprised when each product does EXACTLY what it promises. No the products aren’t cheap but they work amazingly well and for what you get out of each tube from Mama Mio you will feel like you got a steal.

I had the chance to review the Bootcamp for Boobs kit and was excited to see what it could do. Now my boobs have survived breast feeding 3 kids and the weight gain associated with such miracles. As I have been losing the weight from my last pregnancy (ok so he just turned 2 these things take time, right?) my boobs had become deflated and crepey  not a pretty site.

With the first week of my Bootcamp for Boobs I noticed the crepey look of my boobs had all but dissappeared. Now in the middle of my third week I have noticed an amazing transformation my boobs are back up where they were meant to be. I threw on a tank top for bed last night and noticed my boobs looked good even without a bra. I was so excited I had to run and show my husband “look at my boobs, they are back”! He seemed a bit puzzled probably wondering where they had been. I am so thrilled by the results my skin feels and looks so much better and you can’t help but feel more confident when your girls are perky!
