One of the items I purchased on Multiply recently was a pair of Aurislim earrings. The item was on discount at P799.00 for a limited time when I bought it. I don't think I would have made the purchase if it was being sold at its actual price (P1,500.00). I just thought it was an interesting concept so I tried it out.
According to the official website, the product claims to use magnetic acupressure for weight loss. Apart from that, it claims to use far infrared technology and negative ionization to improve a person's metabolic rate and increase energy levels.
The website said that the user should wear it at least three hours a day to see results. I wore it for six hours a day for almost a month and I did not see any significant change in my body at all. The pain of wearing the earrrings was also a bit difficult -- I felt like my earlobes were going to explode after wearing it for two hours (I wore them twice for three hours at a time during the day).
Aurislim also claims to help with better sleep, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. I can't say that my blood pressure and cholesterol has improved because I never tested it but I can say that I did sleep better when I used it. I've read that some people actually experienced increased sweating from using the product but I did not get that at all. To be honest, I wasn't really convinced about the "testimonials" I've read online because they all seemed to be written by one person so I took those things with a grain of salt.
I am disappointed that it did not help me lose even a pound of weight even if it claims it can do so. Then again, there's really no shortcut to weight loss (unless you go for surgery) so I am not surprised. I've stopped using it because I dropped it and the gem in the middle of the earring fell off -- I read that it's not effective if it's broken. Considering that I'm not quite sure about the reasoning behind the importance of the gem to the results they were claiming and that I didn't see any significant change during the time I used it, I just stopped using the product altogether.
If you really want to lose weight and are thinking of using this product it's your choice but if you ask me, I'd tell you to just spend your money on something else, like L-Carnitine supplements which actually did a better job with my weight loss and energy levels than these earrings did.
