Pink Patch

This little sticker can potentially provide weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

First there were patches to help you quit smoking, then birth control, and now there is a patch for losing weight. Created for women trying to lose those last five pounds, the Pink Patch is a substance-infused sticker that you slap on once a day to curb your appetite. The ingredients, which seep into the skin, are intended to control your appetite for 24 hours while revving up your metabolism, curbing your appetite, boosting your energy and elevating your mood. Pink Patch is the newest product from Curb Your Cravings, responsible for the Hoodia patch.

The Pink Patch is marketed toward girls and women in their teens and early twenties. You are expected to lose approximately one to three pounds each week.

The suggested use for the Pink Patch is to stick one patch on your skin in the morning and leave it on throughout the entire day. You are encouraged to drink a lot of water, avoid alcohol and limit caffeine to only a cup per day while you are wearing the Pink Patch.

PRO
  • The Pink Patch may be able to help you lose weight
  • Pink Patch does not cite any side effects
CON
  • No FDA approval or evaluation of the supposed and intended results of the Pink Patch
  • No scientific or medical claims to support the Pink Patch claims
  • It targets young women whose bodies might be more vulnerable to the unregulated and synthesized ingredients contained in the Pink Patch.
  • Does not include any guidelines for how to maintain a healthy weight once the young woman stops wearing the patch.
  • It encourages young women to be skinny and to do introduce potentially harmful substances into their bodies in order to achieve their dream bodies
INGREDIENTS

The Pink Patch contains, Fucus Vesiculosus , a type of seaweed, used in holistic medicine to reduce excess weight by increasing metabolism. It also contains yerba mate, a South American stimulant and hunger suppressor and lecithin, an emulsifier that is claimed to re-proportion your body weight. The ingredients in the Pink Patch are absorbed into the skin and are time released throughout the day.

DIET and EXERCISE

Even though there is no formal diet or exercise plan you should follow while wearing the Pink Patch, you are encouraged to eat a low-fat and low-calorie diet and exercise in order to be see the intended weight loss results.

CONCLUSION

The Pink Patch is a dietary supplement that has not been approved or evaluated by the FDA, therefore its effectiveness and safety cannot be validated. Also, be warned of any supplement that claims to shed pounds by simply putting a sticker on your arm. Moreover, since this product is targeted specifically to young women, it promotes the pressure for women to be skinny by doing whatever they can to achieve their perfect body even if that means taking a product that is unregulated and potentially harmful. As with any new drug or supplement, consult with your medical doctor before taking the Pink Patch.

I bought into this scam a couple months ago. It doesn't work. It's all in your head people! All the patch did is give me a small itchy rash where ever I put it. And read the fine print! Its always free at first, but make sure to take your name off their list or they will keep sending and billing you!

I sent out for the samples and paid the shipping costs, and surprise to me, when opened the pink little package, there were NO PINK PATCHES INSIDE, not even one, it was empty! I have emailed them, but have gotten no answer!

I have recieved my patches today from healthrack.co.uk and I would say that I feel less hungry, I had more ebergy at the gym today then any others days I have spent at the gym. Am going to give it a months try, and see what happens, I hope I do lose my weight as I find it abit difficult being an ill person and doing hard workout at the gym.

Sorry to say, but the free trial did nothing for me. If anything, I was way hungrier.

IMPORTANT: If you take antidepressants, you probably shouldn't take this!

One of its major ingredients is 5-HTP, which interacts with all the SSRIs (prozac, lexapro, zoloft, etc), as well as Effexor, Trazadone, and the MAOs.

I didn't notice the 5-HTP until I got a sample--I know that's one of the things I can't take since I'm bipolar.

I am 21 years old and throughout my life I have always been skinny. I started birth control and gained over 10 lbs. I got the free trial of the pink patch and called the next day to cancel. I am on my second day, but so far, I am still always hungry. I am going to wait until the last of the patches are gone and then I will let you guys know what happens. I also bought the hoodia patches on Amazon.com, so if these don't work, I am going to try those. It is not always easy to lose weight. I eat weight watchers meals, I work out every day, and I still can't lose weight. I am a size 2, but I just want to lose the 10 lbs I gained from the birth control. If anyone has any other ideas for me, I would appreciate it.

go to the gym fatties

ok...i'm 25yrs old and as you girls all know we worry about your bodies almost every second of the day. it's really not hard to maintain your weight. of coarse we all go up and down every month due to water weight ect.... ppl really drink water thoughout the day, don't stuff your face all day and eat a reasonble dinner. no snacking at night either! also anything is moderationis fine for you. do you really need a patch on your body to be leeking in drungs into your body? it's simple, H20, eat reasonably, take the stair instead of the elevators and bam, mainting your weight is simple. pls think twice before using this patch. good luck all.

Just thought id try the weeks worth supply & see what happens, I don't eat takeaways everyweek , nor do i stuff my face full of fast foods or crisps . My weight problem is down to having an under active thyroid. Healthy eating/exercise alone is not enough with this illness. Ive had it 14 yrs so to the clueless person you talk utter rubbish with regards to people being fat through their choice of foods. I WILL be reporting back after the weeks supply & if it shifts anything for me i will most defo be buying the months supply !!

Okay so ive read the reveiews, and i just wanted to say... I bought some off ebay, forget the trial and getting into the mess with them billing you everymonth, thats a hassle. Okay, So ive been on the patch for 4 days now, and it has taken away my hungry,altho i think i lost maybe about 2 pounds, i wont know exactly for about a week till ive taken it longer. There are no side affects. When you remove the patch there is still some sticky left on your body, but put a little baby oil on and rub it off, doesnt leave a notice mark the next day. So i would say as of today its working. So if anyone wants to try it, go to ebay and get it there, much cheeper in the long run and less hassles with them billing your cc. Good luck to everyone. :-)

I've tried a lot of diet fads, but this has got to be the worst. It's just a plaster that's pink and nothing more !!! More fool me for buying it !!!

I recieved the sample and tried one on. I was surprisly not hungry all day. Then I went swimming, came in and was starving. Went to the bathroom and it had come off. I used the samples and was actually quite impressed MUCH to my surprise. I ordered one month, but I've been having medical issues, so I haven't used them yet. I made my husband try 1 too and he also noticed the difference.

There is a firm working on a class action suit against CYC Pink Patch and its parent company USA Herbals. These guys are targeting young women and committing wire fraud with their free trial. If you know anyone that has used this product and wants more info, send me an email

I've been using the pink patch for about 3 months and haven't lost anything, not even my appetite. I'm want to return the unused patches and get my money back
