Of course it works! You put a big yellow (or green) band-aid on your problem area. Everybody looks at you and thinks, "What the h*ll is that THING on her [belly, thigh, upper arm]????!" They don't even notice the fat underneath it. Problem solved!
I'm sorry for the sarcasm, but come on. This is a perfect example of how scammers work-- they choose a very emotional issue, like making girls and young women think they have ugly fat spots on their bodies, and target people who are so upset that they can't even think for a minute. If you use a little bit of logic and critical thinking skills, you'll see that this product is just plain ridiculous and an obvious rip-off.
It claims that it has things like fiber and plant extracts that reduce appetite and help you burn fat. Well, if things like that could go through your skin, you would NEVER have to take medicine in a pill or get a shot. For that matter, people in coma wouldn't have to be tube fed; you could just put fiber and vitamin patches on their skin.
And even if it did have a medication whose molecules could go through your skin, then it couldn't do the two different things it says. It claims that it reduces fat right at the spot where you place it, and then it says it helps you lose weight overall by suppressing appetite. Well, how can it do that? How would they get one type of ingredient to work right on the spot, while another goes on into your bloodstream and throughout your whole body and brain? There would have to be more than one patch.
A very tiny number of medications can be absorbed through the skin-- nicotine, scopalamine (for seasickness) and a few birth control hormones are the common examples. But it took nearly a hundred years for scientists to develop those formulas, and they were very expensive and not as safe as the oral version. There's no way that a company no one's ever heard of could come up with an effective weight-loss patch and sell it on Amazon. You just couldn't cover the costs of the research that way; you'd have to go through a major corporate or government research lab to get enough money to pay the salaries of the dozens of scientists you'd need to develop it. IF there were ever one that worked, it would have to be sold as a prescription. AND we would all know about it, because the doctors who invented it would have won the Nobel Prize for Medicine.
So... This is a band-aid with Metamucil on it. It might give you a rash, but it's not going to make you look any better or lose any weight.
