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!”

Must-Read: DIY Recipe to Reduce Cellulite

CoffeeHow many of us suffer from embarrassing and unsightly cellulite? Unfortunately, it’s impossible to completely get rid of it, but there are things we can do to temporarily minimize its appearance.

Indie Lee, founder of the all natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co has shared one of her DIY recipes with us. This at-home scrub not only works as a natural exfoliant, but will help reduce the appearance of cellulite as well.

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 oz sweet almond oil
  • 2 tbsp coffee grinds (Lee recommends espresso roast)
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot powder (a natural alternative to talc)

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine coffee grinds and sweet almond oil until thoroughly mixed.

2. Add the coconut oil; mix well.

3. Fold in the arrowroot powder, making sure to get rid of any clumps.

Bonus Tip: Indie Lee recommends keeping the mixture refrigerated for one day to make it easier to scoop out.

That’s it! With just a few ingredients and a little time, you can have a home-made recipe to help exfoliate skin naturally while minimizing the appearance of unsightly cellulite.

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.

Have you tried any anti-cellulite treatments or creams? Would you try this one?

CelluScience Review: The Cellulite-Fighting Pill

celluscience_celluliteYou may remember back in mid June I said I was going to start taking the Summer Must-Have: Cellulite-Fighting Pill. It’s been a little over 8 weeks now since I started taking CelluScience as directed.

There was no noticeable difference at first, but I can definitely see a small improvement now. The back of my thighs are about 10-15% smoother and the lumpy hard cellulite near the top of my thighs (saddlebags) is much softer. Before if I pressed hard against my skin and dragged my hand upwards along the outsides of my thighs, I could feel hard bumpy lumps of adipose under there… Gross! Now, when I do the same thing, I still feel the fat, but it’s not hard and lumpy anymore, it’s squishy and soft. That makes for a much smoother appearance on the outside. I saw more dramatic results with this in 6 weeks than I did with any of the

I asked my husband a few days ago is my thighs looked “different” and he examined them closely for a few minutes, turned me around a few times, thought about it and then said “Yeah, they look a lot smoother… and more toned… have you been exercising?”

I haven’t been exercising (please don’t tell Gilad!) and I haven’t been using any cellulite creams or moisturizers on my legs. I’ve only used oil on my legs once or twice and spray on sunscreen once. Other than that, I’ve just been trying to remember to take my cellulite-fighting supplement every day.

You’re supposed to take 2 pills in the morning and 1 pill before bed and I have frequently forgotten the 1 pill before bed… So I must admit, my results with this probably would have been better thus far, if I had been taking the recommend amount every single day.

Most people do not eat healthy enough diets to get all the nutrients their body needs. CelluScience contains some extremely essential nutrients like Grape Seed, Ginkgo biloba, Olive extract, and Fish Oil that helps to prevent and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

CelluScience works in three different ways.

    1) Helps maintain healthy blood flow in the arteries, veins, and micro arteries, fostering optimum activity of the lymphatic vessels.
    2) Helps keep a strong cell metabolism to avoid “undercutaneous/trapped” fat.*
    3) Helps maintain strong connective fibers.*

*As shown in the UNIVERSITY OF SIENA STUDY (Siena, Italy), A three month, double-blind, randomized clinical study of 145 women, as well as the UNIVERSITY OF PAVIA STUDIES (Pavia, Italy), an 8 week, double-blind, placebo controlled study on 25 women, and Aesthetic Dermatology, Vol. 11, 85-90.

Does CelluScience Really Work?

Yes! I can say from my results after about 8 weeks of use, that yes CelluScience does work and I think almost everyone would see an improvement after at least 60-90 days of use. Yes, it’s expensive, but if you are looking for real results and can’t afford liposuction, I think this is a wonderful alternative. And it would work great in conjunction with a diet and exercise program or with other fat-fighting creams like Nude Smoothing Body Refiner or the Comfort Zone Body Strategist Cellulite Multiactive Remodeling System.

Visit celluscience.com to learn more and purchase CelluScience.

Just to be clear, I am not being paid to post about the product. They offered me a 90 day supply to start out with and try in hopes I would blog about the experience. And as always, I would never tell you to buy something I haven’t tried and achieved results with. I only blog about products I believe in. Otherwise, they go into the Don’t Purchase This! category.
