Kardashian Cellulite Reducer Review

posted by Jessica Carroll January 18, 2018

Another day, another Karadashian endorsed product. Khloe Kardashian claims The Fascia Blaster (which looks like a scary claw weapon) helps reduce her cellulite. I put the tool the test for and used it every day for 30-days to see if it actually works!

Watch the video above to find out if it worked for me!

According to the founder of the Fascia Blaster, Ashley Black, the tool is supposed to:

Reduce cellulite

Reduce pain

Accelerate muscle recovery

Improve blood flow

Increase flexibility

I invited my sexy scientist friend, Olivia Pavco-Giaccia, who studied science at Yale University to explain what fascia is and share the science behind The Fascia Blaster! Very interesting stuff!

Blasting Fascia is not a simple process!

STEP 1: HEAT

For best results, warm up internally with about a 10-15 minutes of cardio, and then warm up externally with a hot shower. Heat increases circulation, puts the fascia in a more malleable state, and prepares the tissue for optimal restoration.

STEP 2: APPLY OIL to BARE SKIN

Always use oil when using the Fascia Blaster to ensure the claws glide smoothly and easily on your skin.

STEP 3: Rub the Fascia Blaster On Your Skin

Briskly rub the fascia blaster up and down and side to side in every direction – EXCEPT CIRCLES. The skin should turn red indicating increased blood flow.

STEP 4: Apply Cream After

Use your hands to flush and massage with cream after to help aid recovery.

I hope you enjoyed the video! Please let me know if you have any other secrets to reduce cellulite!

FALL. BOUNCE. CELEBRATE.

posted by Jessica Carroll January 4, 2018

We all fall … and there’s many ways we fall. We are running towards the finish line and trip, only to watch everyone race past us. We have our hearts set on a prom date, only to watch him walk up to the brunette from science class and ask her instead… with a red rose. We have the best audition of our lives, for that dream job, anticipating a callback that never happens. We look into our father’s eyes and hear him say, “I have cancer. I’m fighting for my life.” We pour our heart and soul into finding love on a reality show, then stand and watch as 21 roses are handed out yet we remain empty handed.

What is a fall?

A fall is when you have your heart set on a dream. We imagine a great accomplishment in great detail. We plan every outfit for every date whether it’s a one-on-one or a group date. We can imagine getting the final rose yet find ourselves going home with three unopened bags. Mascara streaks down our face; tear marks on our rose-colored red dress. We call our mom and tell her, “He let me go. I didn’t get a rose.” We’re winded in disbelief, a shattered dream…A fall.

What is a bounce?

A bounce is when we find the flicker of light in the darkness, we rise from our ruins, and we push past the obstacles and search for the opportunities. My dad used to always say, “It’s not how hard you fall it’s how high you bounce that really matters in the end!”

This is my short story on the lessons I learned after a big fall and a big bounce that led to a toast with rosé with my new lifelong sisters, The Rosé Girls. We all have a plan until we’re punched in the heart, but that punch, i.e. fall, is a catalyst for us to become even stronger. We just have to show up, recognize the message in the madness, rediscover our purpose and ourselves, set new goals, create a new dream board and own our victories. The most important thing is to toast and celebrate with the people who we cross paths with on the journey, because I believe it’s not what we do in life but who we do it with that makes all the difference.

I couldn’t be more grateful for my big fall on national television, because I met The Rosé Girls, and I’ve bounced back. And bounced back high! Leaving me feeling more inspired than I ever dreamed possible. We bonded on that long painful bus ride home fighting back tears and became friends for life, and The 7 Shades of Rosé.

I hope you follow my blog and The Rosé Girls podcast about falling, bouncing and celebrating life with rosé. Cheers!
