28-Day Cellulite Makeover™ Kit Now At Ulta!

Summer is coming and there is no better time than now to start fighting back against the cellulite! Dermafactor’s new 28-Day Cellulite Makeover™ Kit targets cellulite from both the outside-in and the inside-out.


About the Kit:

The real problem of cellulite lies not in the bumps and lumps we see on the surface, but in the fat cells below the surface. They fill with fat and puff up like a pillow, pushing against the skin and creating that “cottage cheese” texture we all hate. And while some men do suffer from cellulite, it’s more common among women because their skin tends to be thinner and more likely to show the visible signs of cellulite.

To make these unattractive lumps disappear, you have to address the problem of the fat cells that lie below the skin’s surface. That’s why people are so excited about DermaFactor’s 28-Day Cellulite Makeover. The clinically documented lipolitic ingredients in this two-part, total-body system not only help visibly smooth, tighten and tone the unsightly, telltale “orange-peel” appearance of cellulite, but will significantly reduce pure body fat around the waist, hips, thighs and buttocks. That’s right… in addition to smoothing away the look of cellulite, the 28-Day Cellulite Makeover actually helps shrink the underlying fat cells, or “pillows,” that are the root cause of cellulite. No topical cream can make that claim.

“Our customers love being able to attack their cellulite with a serious system that really works,” says Chantelle Daines, spokesperson for DermaFactor. “Our two-part thermodynamic fat burning system was specifically designed to both activate lipolysis – the elimination of fat from those stubborn problem spots – as well as produce a demonstrated improvement in visible surface uniformity, smoothness and contour. With a dramatic reduction in pure body fat of exactly 15.6%, our 28-Day Cellulite Makeover is definitely more than just a temporary cosmetic fix… it is truly the ultimate cellulite solution, and we’re thrilled to announce its availability at the luxury chain Ulta!”

What do you think of a product like this? Is it something you’d try to combat your own cellulite? I’m curious to see if it works! I can’t wait to give it a whirl…

You can get it now at Ulta for $69.99! Or buy it online here or order it directly from DermaFactor by calling 1-800-401-0920 or visiting Use promo code 28DAY13 at checkout for free shipping.

Bio Ceramic Anti-Cellulite Shorts Make Inches Disappear!

I recently lost a lot of weight on The Dukan Diet and very successfully managed to get back to my pre baby weight. And not my ‘before my second baby’ weight… my ‘before my FIRST baby’ weight. I now weigh the same as I did when I got married. Totally great… makes me super, super happy. However………. I don’t look like I did when I was 18 anymore! Hmm, go figure… Amazing what growing two brand new human beings in your body will do to it.

So needless to say, I have some…er….. rough edges? Few stretch marks… little bit of cellulite… no boobs…. but I can’t complain too much. I could look a lot worse!

Thankfully, I found Delfin Spa Bio-Ceramic Shorts to help in my fight against gaining back extra pounds and combat all that cellulite.

Delfin Spa’s Cellulite Reduction System is an effective and convenient means to reduce visible cellulite and leg circumference. The system comprises Bio-Ceramic lined neoprene shorts and specially formulated Anti-Cellulite cream. Delfin Spa’s Anti-cellulite cream utilizes a combination of natural plant extracts to lessen cellulite, improve micro circulation and assists in reduction of retained liquid.

Delfin Spa’s Bio-Ceramic shorts act as a thermal agent to improve the penetration and efficacy of the Anti-Cellulite cream. They are comfortable to wear and thin enough to wear under clothing while going about your daily activities. The bio-ceramic material is the key to Delfin Spa shorts not being bulky as it reflects your body heat back into you.

I wear them almost everyday now. I had friends and family comment on warmer days “How can you stand wearing those?! Aren’t you got and sweaty under there?” lol Um, yeah… that’s the point! And now that it’s freezing here, I find the extra layer helps keep me warm. Admittedly I don’t sweat as much with these on when it’s cold, obviously, but I hope they are still working!

I use these as my secret weapon to help whip me back into shape if I’ve been cheating on my diet for a few days… (Sshhhh, don’t tell Dr Dukan!). They help reduce water retention (hence the sweating) which is especially helpful during “that time of the month” when you are more likely to retain extra water and bloat. I really feel like these shorts help me fight back.

Increased heat and molecular stimulation enhances the effectiveness of your exercise by increasing blood flow and accelerating your metabolism so you can burn more calories. Bio Ceramic shorts also improve the effectiveness of any anti-cellulite cream by making it penetrate deep into the skin and the cellulite. These shorts are a great option to wear during yoga class too.


This summer I tried a similar pair of exercise shorts as these and they worked just as well, but Delfin Spa shorts are HALF THE PRICE! (They are on sale right now for $51.99 and they come with Anti Cellulite Cream (6 oz)!!!!)

Bonus! These come in Extra Small (which is the size I got) and the other ones I reviewed do not, which made them eventually fit quite baggy on me making them completely ineffective. You want these to fit like a glove… like a wet suit… very form fitting, in order to get the benefits from wearing them.

Avon ANEW CLINICAL Professional Cellulite Treatment Reviews

I just received ANEW CLINICAL Professional Cellulite Treatment from reps at Avon, so I can test and review their new cellulite treatment!

I’m ALWAYS up to try out cellulite creams and treatments. I have used several that worked really, really well and I had almost no cellulite left to treat. And then I got pregnant…

I’m now 37 weeks pregnant, due August 24th, and boy do I have cellulite now!!!!!! YIKES! I tried so hard to stay in shape, eat right, etc with this pregnancy, but it did not seem to help me avoid cellulite on my thighs… UGH.

So I’m anxious to start using this as soon as I pop this little baby out so I can try to get my body back in shape. I feel like a beached whale right now…

Avon site says…

Transform your legs and look good from any angle! Dramatically reduce the visible depth and intensity of cellulite.* Women agreed look of cellulite on legs appeared reduced even when sitting with legs crossed.* 2 revolutionary formulas in one: CelluRefine Cream: rich cream designed to help reinforce skin’s structure. Smooth Suction Gel: cooling gel with tightening polymers is formulated to enhance the cream.

Price: $30

I read the reviews of this product on the Avon site and it sounds like this one is a winner! One reviewer said...

    “I have used cellulite cream in the past and never really saw much difference. I am thin and toned but have always been uncomfortable with the severity of my cellulite (thanks mom!). I got this product and it sat in my bathroom for a while, but last week I buckled down and decided to see if it actually works. Last night I decided to finally look in the mirror and see if there’s been changes, and voila! It was sooooo much better! Before I used to look at my cellulite in that same mirror and be so self conscious. Last night I looked almost normal! Still have some ways to go, but this has seriously changed my outlook already. Bikini here I come!”

Sounds great! I can’t wait to start using it in a few weeks. I’ll use it for at least 4 weeks before I write a review so I can see if I get any improvements.
