Tone up with a tube
There are a lot of creams on the market that claim to reduce cellulite, but do they really work? We put bh’s Nat and bh’s Di on a one-month trial of Elixia® BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème to find out if it was really worth the beauty bucks. Here’s what they had to say…
Nat’s review of Elixia® BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème
“I was a little skeptical about this product before I started using it as I had previously tried an anti-cellulite cream from a different brand and didn’t really see any results, but boy did Elixia proved me wrong!”¨I hate my legs, especially my thighs, as they are very bumpy and wobbly due to a lack of exercise and cellulite. I used this anti-cellulite cream every morning for about a month and noticed a difference after a week. After 2 – 3 weeks my boyfriend even commented on how smooth and toned they looked, I was amazed with the result!”¨The consistency of the cream is very light so a lot goes a long way and it rubs in really easily (even better than my usual moisturiser actually). It dries quite quickly and also smells light and fresh without being overpowering or unpleasant. ”¨This is possibly the best product I’ve ever used and even though it’s more than I would usually spend on a cream, the results spoke for themselves so I’d definitely purchase it again.”
Di’s review of Elixia® BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème
“I have always been skeptical about the benefits of cellulite creams. Hope in a jar is how I have always viewed them so I was a little surprised when bh’s Deb asked if I would take the 4-week Elixia challenge. But being the team player I am, I said yes of course! The first thing I did was to read the instructions, which advised me to apply the cream to cellulite-ridden areas (my words not actually on the instructions) twice a day after cleansing my skin. The second thing I did was to decide to only apply this once a day after my morning shower – otherwise it was going to be too hard and too time consuming and I would give up without finishing the tube. On day one, after showering, I applied this cream to the back of my upper thighs where all my cellulite likes to hang out. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the scent of the cream, how quickly and easily it was absorbed, and that it left no greasy residue. After day two, I was a convert. I could actually, really, truly feel my skin tightening where I had applied the cream. After week one I noticed a difference in the appearance of my cellulite. There did not seem to be quite as much of it. I thought I must be convincing myself of this and that the cream could not really be making that much difference. Weeks two, three and four proved that THIS CREAM ACTUALLY WORKS. The skin on my thighs is much firmer and my cellulite seems to be less obvious to the eye and it seems as if there is less of it. I will admit that I have also been on a bit of a diet and exercise program, which may well be contributing to the appearance of my cellulite, but I really believe that the Elixia BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème has made a huge difference to the look and feel of my cellulite areas and I definitely plan to keep using it.”
