With so many of us overweight, and with our Christmas and New Year excess still fresh in our minds many of us may be willing to try anything to aid our weight loss efforts, but what about a weight loss perfume?
Prends Moi is such a perfume that has been created by French manufacturers Velds to help fight against snacking.
They state that the “delicious … light, fruity and floral” fragrance of Prends Moi can “helps to compensate for bad habits [such as] snacking.”
How does this weight loss perfume work?
The active ingredients include Betaphroline, a wild indigo seed extract that releases B-endorphins when they come into contact with the outer layer of your skin.
These endorphins send a pleasure message to your brain, which will increase your feelings of contentment. This then helps to reduce any yearning for that junk food you would usually reach for when you are feeling hungry.
Prends Moi also contains other ingredients that have been shown to help with weight loss, including caffeine, carnitine and spirulina extract.
Is it proven to help with weight loss?
In a trial study by BIO-EC, the Centre of Biological Research and Cutaneous Experimentation, 75% of women aged between 18 and 75 were shown to snack less after wearing the perfume over a 28 day period.
Of those participants in the study, 70% stated that their eating behaviour had changed because of their use of Prends Moi.
How to achieve the best results?
To get the best results from Prends Moi it is recommended that you start your day with a generous spritz, and then whenever you feel the urge to snack throughout the day.
You can also massage the perfume into targeted areas too, as you would your normal perfume.
Where can you buy this weight loss perfume?
Prends Moi is available to buy from The Fragrance Shop (a 100 ml bottle costs £15), however this perfume seems like it may become a popular choice among consumers as the buying director of The Fragrance Shop has stated that the waiting list is “in excess of 6,000 people”.
If you are trying to lose weight then you could try this perfume yourself, it is not too expensive and if it works as claimed then it could go a long way to helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
