Banish the bumps.

So ladies, it’s getting to that time of year again when we have to start thinking about what we actually look like in a bikini…scary stuff. Apart from manically trying to tone up and get fit for when I go away in 6 weeks’ time, I’m also trying to get rid of the dreaded ‘orange peel’ effect…cellulite. I’ve never tried any of the creams before so when [comfort zone] Body Strategist + Remodeller Cream arrived at the office I thought I might as well give it a go!
At £46.95 it is quite a lot more than I would think to pay for this but after using it I may change my mind! 

Here’s what they say about it: 

"The Body Strategist + professional and retail offering use the same proven active ingredients including escin and seanamin™ that favour a draining action, and black pepper extract that aids a reducing action, also caffeine, carnitine and fucus. However, Body Strategist + now additionally comprises adiposlim™ and adipoless™ to the formulations, which further stimulates lipolysis that also creates a slimming action and helps to maintain body shape in preventing development of new fat cells.”

And I say it’s great. You massage it on after a bath or shower (the harder you massage the stronger the immediate effects apparently) and then let it do its magic. It’s best to do this when you have a bit of time to let it soak in as initially it completely cools the area you’ve put it on, before it then goes hot and red! Make sure you wash your hands immediately afterwards, as I got some on the underside of my forearms and it was a bit too strong for the sensitive skin there. I also tried it on my stomach once but again, I didn’t really like how it felt. I’ve been using it sporadically for about 6 – 8 weeks and really need to start daily as although I haven’t seen a huge change in how the cellulite looks (it is definitely improving though), my legs and bottom definitely feel firmer and even my boyfriend has noticed, that speaks volumes!
Secret Beauty Verdict: If you have the time to put this on everyday and wait for your legs to go back to normal, then I’d definitely recommend it, although it’s pricey, I think you get what you pay for.

  1. That's very interesting. I always assumed they were totally fake :)

  2. I know, so did I which is why I hadn't tried any before. The cellulite has definitely improved now too but I didn't have it too badly before I suppose and I do excercise regularly which I know helps it.

  3. I totally need to get some of that!! Thanks for the advise.
