The Beauty Boffin’s review of Nivea ‘Good-bye Celluite – 10 Day Serum’.

16 Sep

I’m not sure how it happened but overnight my legs were hit by a meteor shower of cellulite. So I’m almost glad the Summer is over because I can pull myself away from the impulse to buy every beauty product with the term ‘cellulite treatment’ written on the bottle.

The first product I bought back in June was Nivea ‘Good-bye Celluite’. 10 Day Serum.

I loved the name and also loved the fact that it was a serum. When I first used this product I got very excited because it has the most divine scent, possibly the Lotus extract, it’s both uplifting and luxurious, as is the texture. It goes on easily, almost velvety, thought I found I had to be quite generous with the application to cover my thighs and I’ve got fairy skinny thighs (think Kermit the frog legs).

I used it daily for ten days but I didn’t see any difference whatsoever, bar the fact that I smelled like a very expensive bar of soap. And what really ticked me off was that by day ten the bottle of serum was empty. I know the label says ‘ten day serum’ but I didn’t actually think that meant there was only enough for ten days.

If this product was cheaper I would buy it simply because of the heavenly scent but I certainly wouldn’t purchase it to treat cellulite. Sigh. The search continues.

Smooth skin – Magic Peeling Exfoliating Glove

18 Aug

Magic Peeling Exfoliating Glove

The claim:

The Magic Peeling Glove® is made of a cellulose fibre extracted from the plant broom of the Ginestra plant.

Promotes the skin’s natural exfoliating process and Improves the flow of OXYGEN to the skin

Eliminate impurities

Replaces chemical peeling Process in a totally natural way

Enhances the effectiveness of the active principles in ANTI-CELLULITE, MOISTURIZING, ANTI-WRINKLE, AND ANTI-STRETCH MARK creams

The results:

The skin on my legs has never been so soft, allowing body cream to be instantly absorbed, in fact I had such good results on my legs that I even used this on my turkey skin neck (I know, disgusting, but it happens to us lazy girls who only exfoliate our faces) and chin, again resulting in super soft skin as if I’d just had some type of dermabrasion, except without the burning.

The material used in this glove is not abrasive, though it did make my skin a little pink, I was, however, using quite a bit of pressure when working the glove on my body, this reaction disappeared quickly afterwards leaving smooth soft skin.

If I could only keep one body product, right now, I’d choose this.

Be warned.

Stand in the shower or the tub when you’re using this glove as you won’t believe the amount of dead skin that will flake off!
