Overall, I give the FasciaBlaster® by Ashley Black 3/5 stars.
I’ve seen this product floating around the Internet and on social media so I was excited to give it a whirl!
It’s quite the experience and a love/hate relationship formed with the FasciaBlaster and me…
So from the very first time I used it and every time after, it hurts so badly.
You literally have to rub your skin until it becomes red and irritated and the sensation is “intense”.
I have super tight muscles in my legs, booty, and thighs, so it felt like the hardest foam roller ever, 10x and with spikes.
It’s NOT fun. And you have to use the blaster quickly like using a washboard.
It left some pretty ugly bruises for first few times and I was so sore.
It’s a little better when you use oil and follow it up with cream.
But regardless, get ready for some discomfort.
However, the results were pretty good.
I felt like my muscles weren’t as tight and painful as they normally are.
And I felt like it amped up my circulation and stuff was flowing a little better.
I think it helped improve the appearance and texture of my legs and bum (the 2 areas I focused most on).
But I really think this product just depends on the person.
For me, I’m not dedicated enough to do this consistently because I didn’t look forward to it.
Even though the process takes about 5 – 25 minutes depending on how many areas you’re focusing on.
If you can handle a little pain and discomfort, then you’ll probably be able to reap some benefits from it.
I do like how it treats the skin and muscles and fascia.
Luckily, there’s a 3-year guarantee, so you can try it out relatively risk free!
The FasciaBlaster® is a very durable, plastic, handheld device with 4 large “claws”.
Each of the claws has 6 hard nodules that are rounded off at the ends.
There’s a handgrip on either side of the device to make it easier to hold on to.
The application process is going to be the longest, since our other sections don’t really apply to this particular cellulite product.
It comes with a full 4-page instruction pamphlet in the box.
I obviously can’t go over every tiny detail but I’ll definitely give you the major takeaways from it.
So, it can be used on 14 main areas, which include front and back of thighs, outside and inside of thighs, front, outside of lower legs, inside and outside of calves, bum, belly, love handles, triceps, upper back, and lower back and waist.
Choose the desired areas you want to focus on and you can even alternate areas according to tolerance and bruising.
For application, you’re going to work each area for a minimum of 1-5 minutes, as tolerated, until the skin becomes red and the sensation becomes intense.
Don’t work any area for more than 10 minutes.
Make sure you only move the device up and down, side to side, or diagonally. Don’t move it in circles.
You’re going to rub the areas QUICKLY like using a washboard. Don’t rub slowly.
Use it on bare skin for the best results.
They also suggest using it with oil that has little to no absorption, followed up with a cream.
It works best when tissue has been warmed by at least 15 minutes of cardio or external heat like a sauna, hot bath or shower, heating pad, etc.
If you’re like me and use a foam roller, they recommend using the foam roller after the FasciaBlaster®.
To help break up fat, contract the muscle. To break up fascia, relax the muscle.
To stimulate nerves or promote muscle recovery, relax the muscles.
There are a lot of great tutorials on how to use it on each area here: https://www.fasciablaster.com/pages/tutorials
There are a few words of caution, though.
You shouldn’t use it if you have a history of blood clots, are on blood thinners, directly on varicose veins, internally, or on a pregnant belly.
No drying time involved with this product.
Smell (in the bottle)
There’s no smell because it’s a handheld device.
Smell (a few hours after application)
Short Term Results
Short term results was mostly just pain!
This product isn’t for the faint of heart.
It kind of beats you up. But you know what they say, “Beauty is pain!”
I was left with some ugly looking bruises for a while.
And each use leaves your skin very red and irritated.
That’s actually the goal, you’re not supposed to stop until your skin is red and the sensation becomes intense.
Long Term Results
Long term results were much better.
I definitely felt like it helped increase my circulation and blood flow, relax my muscles, and reduce some of my leg pain.
It’s a multi-purpose tool that can be used for much more than cellulite (even though that’s what we’re here for!)
I do think it helped improve the appearance of my cellulite and my booty and legs looked and felt smoother.
There are no ingredients since it’s a physical, handheld device.
The FasciaBlaster® is $89.00 on the AshleyBlackGuru.com website.
In my opinion, this is definitely expensive for a cellulite treatment.
However, it will last MUCH longer than your average cellulite cream since it’s reusable.
So if you use it for a long period of time, it actually ends up being a good value for the price.
