Xenoctil review

Hi everyone,

I wanted to write a brief review on Xenoctil, a slimming pill which can be bought at Watson or Guardian for about RM120.




I always wanted to try  Garcinia Cambogia, and since this was one of the main ingredient in Xenoctil, I decided to give it a try to see if the hype about this miracle slimming fruit really lives up to its name.

It contains 60 capsules which i'm suppose to take 2 capsules before my meals, which makes it 4 capsules  a day. but since I rarely eat much in the evening when i'm away from home, I just took 2 a day. At RM 120, it is quite pricey.

For suppressing appetite, i guess it did work for the first few days. But the effect didn't last long. By the time i entered my second week, the suppressing effect was negligible.

I also tried to work out 3x a week. but during this 1 month, i only had time to run about 6x.

after the 1 month ended and i weighed myself, I lost 2kg which isnt that bad since I only took 2 capsules a day. I'm not sure if it was just water weight, but one thing i noticed when i was on it, is that my body felt less bloated, kinda gave me a lighter feeling.

As for the side effects, I didn't notice any which is great. I tried the Befit for only a few days, and I could already feel so uncomfortable. But it does state on the box that the long term effect is not known yet. 

Will I repurchase it again? I would if it was on sale. But not at its full price. This one i got it on sale for RM 98.

Befit Garcinia Cambogia

Its been a very long time since my last post. I've decided to keep personal stories off my blog, and maybe just write about random stuffs that i feel I should share with everyone.

Anyway, I've recently gained about 10 pounds, which is around 5 kg hahaha, I take full responsibility for this weight gained, and i do admit, its due to me being at a very happy place right now. I have someone new, someone that I crazily adore, And we're still going strong at 1 year and 5 months.

Anyway, before i stray out of context again, let me just get back to the main issue.

Due to this weight gain, and hearing about a friends personal testimony on how this pills made her lose weight without any form of exercise or diet, I jumped on the wagon too, against my better judgement.

before i go on, heres the pictures of the pills i got online. for Rm45 with shipping, its quite cheap.

I tried to google for Fazz beauty, but the only thing that came out was this slimming product from our Malaysian celebrity Fazura, and I'm pretty sure this isnt one of her product.



 what makes it more deceiving, is the fact that it comes with a code where you can check weather the product is authentic or not. i don't know if its just a gimmick, or a technique to make the product look more legit. 

One odd thing i noticed also, was that on the box it stated that the price for SS IS RM150 and yet people online was selling it for as low as RM35. The supplier that i bought from sold it for Rm40. She sclaims its because its straight from the factory. Hmmm...

I couldn't google anything more about this product to be honest. where its made from, what company is Fazz beauty from. That actually should ring anyone's alarm bells, right?









I took it for 5 days, and sure enough, it actually curbed my insatiable hunger for sweet stuff. On an alarming note, I could actually hear my heartbeat beating much faster than it usually does, which in turn made me constantly anxious eventhough there was nothing to worry about. And my throat felt dry most of the time, I felt like I drank a bucket of water the whole day.

Now, when i checked the bottle, it only states GARCINIA CAMBOGIA as the ingredient. But since I'am well aware of the main drug they used to curb hunger in most illegal slimming pill, SIBUTRAMINE, i decided to google sibutramine and Befit together, and walaaa i get a hit, 




Taken from http://www.straitstimes.com/

I found out that this slimming pill, although with different packaging but with the same name, is actually banned in Singapore for containing 2 dangerous ingredient
.
Sibutramine was a prescription medicine previously used as an appetite suppressant in the management of obesity and has been banned for sale in Singapore since October 2010 because of safety concerns associated with cardiovascular risks. It may cause serious adverse effects, including high blood pressure, increased heart rate, anxiety, heart attacks and irregular heartbeats.

Phenolphthalein has been used medicinally as a laxative but is no longer in use in Singapore.  Phenolphthalein may cause rashes, abdominal cramps, breathing difficulties, kidney disorders and has been found in animal studies to be associated with cancer.

You can actually read up more on this 2 ingredient from google, and the more i read about them, the more scared I was. I'm definitely not gonna risk my health just for the sake of losing a few pounds.

If you wanna take the risk, and hope that the side effect will spare you, you can always try.

paperman

Have you ever watched this short animated movie by Disney? Its called paperman and when I first saw it I was so in awe with it. The story line was so cute and being a romantic, I relate to this very well. I believe in soulmates, and that life will eventually lead you in the arms of the ones who was meant for you.

I first saw this back in January, when I started dating someone new. I listen to this all the way to our date. even though it was short lived, it was fun while it lasted lol.

Lennox calorie Limit Tea review updated

So ..heres another post on stuffs that would aid me on my fat blasting journey. This was on sale on SASA for rm27 for 24 sachets. The original price was rm39..which I dont think I'll get if it was.

Its Lennox calorie limit tea!


 At the back of the box, we have this cute cartoon on who this is perfect for. They forgot to put in "im too lazy to work my ass off extra hard" kind of people..which is me :D hahaha



the sachets is quite small. I thought it was a teabag because of the word green tea lol. Its actually in the form of powder. And let me tell you when it says green tea..I think the persons taste buds was probably dead and gone coz it tasted like smokes ashes.





I had a hard time drinking it and it actually left me abit dizzy for a few minutes. If it intends to curb my cravings, after that drink, I just wanted to gobble down anything to get rid of the aftertaste, Lets hope to God it actually blocked all my omelette and fries just now lol. I should have been strong enough to resist them..but tonight..the victory was in my tummys hands.


I will continue to have them , they are a part of my defence team against the coming raya foods. so i just have to be a big girl and swallow them in 1 go. no more heavy supper for me! Ill update this post after a few days to see if somehow become lighter in numbers.

I love this 2 humans!





UPDATES

I've used up most of the sachets by now. I think I only have about 5 left. So I've consumed about 17 sachets for the past week. I gave away 2 to my sis and my friend to try it out. sometimes, it has an affect on my bowel, and I have to do a number 2 after 2,3 hours.

So has it worked its charm on me?

I weighed myself using my ordinary scale. And it was 51 kg. Now, using my digital and a more accurate scale back home, the last week i weighed myself, i was about 53.6 kg. Now i don't know if i actually lost some weight because of it alone, but I can say this about the product.

I cant completely write it off as being incompetent in what it claims to do, because, I have lost about 1 kg. But then again, I have been working out at least 3x a week, and I have been limiting my calories and taking dr.diet, a replacement meal for dinner every now and then.

I don't think I'll buy it again because the result isn't as significant as I hoped it would be. It was negligible and abit disappointing. but then again, it satisfied my curiosity lol.

Good thing, I bought it during sales.

So..I think I would do fine without it.

here we go again..

Hello to good ol Miri again. I was suppose to come back after raya, but oh well, a change of plan. My room seems untouched, I dont think any cleaning was done lol. Not taht Im complaning, my room wasnt left dirty to begin with. A short session of spring cleaning, and my room is as fresh as the mist every breaking dawn. Okay..abit over dramatic. But anyways, its a diffrent kind of feeling being back here. I have new housemates, whom Ive yet to meet. Would it be too much for me to hope for them to be little angels like my 2 housies?

 the card reader was eerily accurate when she talked about him. 2 guys in my life, one is a younger guy and another..is a married man. that baffles me though, I'm the kind of person, who values loyalty in a relationship like a fool. I don't even mess around with pples bf, let alone married men. so here's a reminder to myself

"LEONA, I WILL INVENT A TIME MACHINE TO GO BACK IN TIME IF U EVER DO GET INVOLVE WITH A MARRIED MAN, AND TORTURE YOU TILL YOUR COMMON SENSE COMES BACK!"

I wanna get another reading next week, its kinda addictive!
I went on a shopping spree today. People were everywhere like ants and I hate crowds. I got a few stuff to try out. I have been shopping for clothes like a mad person for the past month, and the thought of browsing through clothes again makes me nauseous. I bought a pink weighing scale for my place in here. Finally! it was on sale in parkson, just rm24!

I weighed myself and I was 52 kg. hmm..2 day ago, i was 53.4 kg. but its a digital scale back home, and I think its more accurate, so I shouldn't be gleeful about this drop in numbers.

I was scrolling through my photos after I just broke up with him a few days later. I was kinda in a state of shock and numb. eventhough I ended it. I was just abit shaken by how rude and mean he could be. but then I guess, he was like that with his previous exes. so why did I think he would be more civilized this time? Tigers cant change their stripes ..unfortunately.


The good thing about breakups are, it made me numb enough to ignore the demands of my tummy hahaha. I can laugh about it now, but it wasnt something I'd joke about back then. I was emotionally wounded.

 You know, the thing about me is, I tend to treat my blog like an online diary. Lol. I would steer away from the things I initially wanted to write about, and talk about random stuff lol.

 The reason i talked about the issue above was, I realize how 3 kg has affected my body shape. Just 3 kg and I look so chubby now. So today, I went out and bought a scale to keep track of my weight, and I also bough Lennox calorie limit tea, which supposedly blocks the fat from the food I'll binge on during raya. I just had to have some kind of defence for this coming raya lol. Im a shameless glutton when it comes to raya's open house.

And of course, I'll do a review on that. It was on sale for rm27, so I thought why not? I almost wanted to get kitsui collagen drink for rm118 for 2 months supply, but...I think I should step away from those for now.

I left early coz there was just so much people at the mall. And on the bus was this chinese lady with 2 kids that was abit overly friendly. She would just dig into my shopping bags and kept sayaing "banyak duit boleh beli banyak ho?" she was just being a friendly lady, but I think theother teenage girls kinda found her abit intrusive when she asked them if their heels was expensive lol.

All too well

I watched 2 korean movie a few days ago. one was my PS partner (phone sex) its a bit x rated, but it really made me laugh. It had kim ah joong in it, and shes a great actress. I loved her in 200 pounds beauty.




You can watch it online here


The other one, temperature of love or very ordinary couple was starred by my fave korean pair, Lee min ki and Kim min hee.

After watching the last one, it made me abit emo I guess. mostly because, the scenes reminded me of how I was with my ex a bit too well.

It toned down my anger, made me see things in a different way. Even almost made me think that maybe one day, we would be civilized enough to be friends. Almost anyway..

You know what I missed about my last relationship? The closeness we shared. I was so comfortable with him. He was my everything I guess. The first and the last person that was on my mind every single day. The person I would talk to about everything. He made me feel like I belong. 

Thats the best part of it. But I cant turn a blind eye on the bitter part. The constant fights, disagreement and insecurities. It fell apart, and I had to admit, I didn't want to save it. 

But no matter how bad it ended, there will be those brief moments where I will reminisce about our fun times together. we were 2 young foolish romantics who thought that love would be enough to make it till the end.
Maybe I'll never have that kind of passion again, but somehow, Im content that at least I knew how it felt to love someone so passionately eventhough it did clouded my judgement. And I think that everyone should feel that passion for someone, at least once in their life. 

I do miss having that kind of closeness, and I do try to find it with the guys I've dated, but I guess Ive reached the point in my life where passion can take a backseat. Not saying that I'll settle, but to love as passionate as I once did is abit too early for now. But its not such a bad thing after all. why? I'll be much much wiser when it comes to love, abit realistic this time. And the next breakup wont have the same impact it had on me like before. It'll hurt, but I doubt its gonna make a mark on my life, it wont change who I'am.


Only time will tell if I'll ever love that way again. Right now, Im just content with what I have. I'm not hoping for anything more for now.

All the love songs are so obvious. Love itself is obvious. You meet, you love, break up, get hurt, and you meet again. I bet people get married because they get tired of repeating those.
