Nivea Body Goodbye Cellulite
Advantages: A product that actually visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite and at a low cost.
Disadvantages: Not a miracle product, but it certainly helps!
After some regrettable weight gain due to sudden bad eating habits (we've all been there!) I'd developed some unsightly cellulite on the backs of my legs. Wanting to wear dresses but not being able to show off my legs because of this, urged me to try and do something about it. And fast! Of course I went on a sort of diet, and did a bit of exercise to get rid of the extra weight. But I needed some sort of product that would help my skin get back to the way it was. The Nivea Goodbye Cellulite! Had some pretty good reviews and wasn't overly expensive. Plus it was targeted specifically at banishing the problem. I bought a bottle from Boots when it was on offer (how I came across it) and got to work straight away.
The product comes in a squeezy bottle and is light blue in colour. The texture is slightly gel like, and thick. But not so thick that you can't easily rub it into your skin. The gel like consistency means you only need a small amount to cover a large area. It does have a noticeable scent to it, but not one that is overpowering or unpleasant. The product claims that the Cellulite Gel-Cream contains "highly effective, natural Lotus Extract. It visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite - even without extra massage." The product also contains L-Carnitine - another active ingredient. And it's the combination of the two is what makes this unique and effective.
As with any high claim product, the back of the bottle also features some 'proven results'. According to Nivea, in a test of 212 women, 88% of them after 2 weeks of use, confirmed that the gel makes their skin more beautiful. - noticeably toned and smoothed. Then in a test of 45 women, after 3 weeks of use, the signs of cellulite on the skin are visibly reduced, even without extra massage. The product then goes on to explain the recommended usage of smoothing the product, onto the problem areas daily.
So, a product that claims to be an anti-cellulite gel-cream, that visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite within 4 weeks. Sounds a bit too good to be true. Obviously it won't completely get rid of your cellulite, that would be a miracle at that price! But it does claim to help REDUCE the APPEARANCE. Despite the product claiming for this to work even without extra massage, I thought it would be best to incorporate at least some massage into the routine. But even then I didn't do this often. I used this every day for at least a month, minus a few days here and there were I forgot to use it. I also used Jergens Naturals Firming moisturiser after showering, just to help the process along.
The gel-cream is really easy to apply, just like applying any old moisturiser really. After applying you then have to wait a few minutes before dressing, but after massaging the product into your skin, it instantly feels soft and smooth. I have to say after a couple of weeks of not very religious use, my skin did feel a lot softer and smoother - more beautiful. Just like the product claims. After about a month, I did notice that my cellulite was significantly reduced. It hadn't completely disappeared, but any that I did have left was definitely less noticeable. And... I could actually feel confident wearing a dress again! This was such a huge change from when I first started using the product. You get a good 200ml of product and as you don't need a lot (a little goes a long way), one tube can easily last you about 3 or 4 months.
I wouldn't suggest only using this product once. By this I mean only using the product until you're happy with the results, as slowly but surely, the cellulite will return. However, I find I can easily go for weeks before I need to start using this again. But even when I do, it's only every few days or so, until I feel happy enough to stop using again. This doesn't bother me though, because I just add it to my usual moisturising routine after I shower, so it's not an issue. Plus my skin always feels really smooth and soft for a few days after using.
Summary: If you can't stand the look of your cellulite, then try this. I'm so glad I did!
