What You Should Know
The name BeautySlender invokes visions of a slim and beautiful life. This is the goal of almost every woman who has ever tried to lose weight or get in shape and the marketing for this product is a clever ploy to tap into that desire. Unfortunately, it takes more than a catchy name to create an effective weight loss supplement. How does BeautySlim hold up to in depth scrutiny?

The list of things BeautySlender promises to do is much longer than most prescription medications. Why is this? Because it is classified as an all-natural supplement rather than a medication and the manufacturer does not have to prove the effectiveness of its claims. The first clue that the product will probably not live up to expectations is the vagueness of the ingredients list. Whenever a company says proprietary blend it really means it doesn’t want consumers to know exactly what is in the product. Additionally, the fact that the company is not sure enough of the product to offer a money back guarantee is worrisome especially since it would cost almost $100 just to get to packages to try the program for a full month. Spending that much money on faith is simply not feasible for most people in this economy. This is especially when a product provides no proof that it is effective either through independent testing or client testimonials. A weight loss supplement should be clinically proven to do one of two things, if not both, suppress appetite and increase metabolism. If there is no proof, take a pass.
