I'm getting a Rodial Boob Job!

That's right. Ok, it's not the kind that will require a doctor to mark up my breasts with dotted lines and things. No anesthesia. No recovery time. True, my results won't be as dramatic or lasting. But I'm getting a Rodial Boob Job and you're coming along with me.

I'm in that now-you're-empowered-I-am-woman- hear-me-roar 40+ thing. And yes, I've given birth. That's 2 strikes in the at-bat of maintaining breast perkiness. I don't really care how perky my breasts are, but I do notice my bikini tops don't fit the way they did when I was 33. And I'm two cups sizes larger since then, too. The baby weight left but it left some baggage back at Carousel 36D, if you're following. Rodial Boob Job says it  will have an instant lifting and firming effect. Here's my first impression...

Rodial Boob Job comes in a pump, and the pump works well--not sticking or having to pump numerous times. The formula is lotion-like and smoothes on easily. Rodial Boob Job recommends applying in an upward fashion to breasts and decollete--the standard anti-gravity instructions. So I do that. And, as if to expect some Invasion of the Body Snatchers moment, I stand, eyes fixed on the mirror, and wait for my transformation.

Ok, I'm still waiting. To be honest, I do notice a change. It's not a real visible change, but I feel a slight tightening, as I did when I was reviewing Lush Bust. I also notice something I really like--my breasts feel incredibly softened and smoothed. Not that my breasts are a rough texture to begin with, but Rodial Boob Job leaves them extra silky-to-the-touch.

Rodial Boob Job also claims the following:

You will see a gradual increase in cup size within 56 days as well as gaining an instant lifting and firming effect. Increase in cup size by 8.4%.

56 days is pretty darn precise, so I figure Rodial must have done their homework or had fun playing darts. And I don't need (or want!) an 8.4% increase in cup size, but I guess I can live with it if I have some firming going on. So I've got 54 days to go...

Was it worth it? Rodial Boob Job makes remarkable claims for a topical breast formula. I definitely like the way it makes my skin feel (very silky!) and my breasts are a bit firmer, which is what I was looking for. But an 8.4% cup size increase on yourself is hard to measure. At £125.00, currently about $240, it's pricey, so make sure you're ready to commit!
