Costly cream aims to eliminate "bingo wings"

Costly cream aims to eliminate "bingo wings"

A new cosmetic cream claims to eliminate the dreaded "bingo wing" or “bat wing” - the skin underneath one's bicep that often sags with age. However, some have questioned whether the lotion, which will hit shelves in the UK in May, is worth its price tag, according to The Daily Mail.

Known as Arm Sculpt, the cream boasts the ability to "break down fat cells" in the upper arms, which in turn tightens and smoothes the skin. This may be appealing to many women who feel that their age can be gauged by how much their arm skin sags.
