“ Brand: Nivea / Type: Firming Product / Texture: Cream / What it does: Smoothes, „
Lots of us woman suffer from the orange peel effect on our thigh's bottom and our stomach. Fortunately I only suffer a tiny bit on my thighs but like any other girl am extremely paranoid about how it looks when I've got my legs out in a short skirt!
I was in boots looking for firming lotion, when I saw this new product, it looked and sounded good so I thought I'd give it a try. It was pricey but I though I'd try it out anyway. I'd do anything to get rid of even the small bit of orange peel effect on my thighs!

I have only seen this product in boots, and costs a pricey £8.99 for 300ml. It comes in a large round tub with a screw lid and this comes in a box with a picture of a ladies buttocks and thighs on the front.
The round tub comes with a screw lid which is blue in colour and when you first buy the product it has some foil over the top of the cream.
The cream is white in appearance and looks quite thick. It also looks like it has little lumps in the cream the size of sugar/salt granules. It has a light fragrance to the cream which isn't at all strong or unpleasant.
***PUTTING IT TO THE TEST***
I tested this product on my problem areas such as thighs and buttocks and recorded my results.
WEEK ONE - I applied this product to my thigh's and buttocks every day, after having a shower before I went to bed.
Applying the cream was as simple as applying a moisturiser to your body. The cream was easy to rub in and it absorbed into my skin very quickly, and left no stickiness or residue. A little bit of this cream goes a long way!
After the first application my legs instantly felt smoother and looked/felt moisturised.
RESULTS AT THE END OF WEEK ONE: My legs felt and looked smoother but no reduction on the orange peel effect on the backs of my thighs.
WEEK 2 - 3 - My legs definitely feel a lot smoother than they did before and they look smoother and softer. I can't decided whether the orange peel effect on my thighs has been reduced or not.
RESULTS AT THE END OF WEEK 2 - 3: I looked in the mirror today and I'm 95% sure that the orange peel effect on my legs has been reduced. They definitely feel and look noticeably smoother than they did before.
WEEK 4 - 5: Well I will admit I am impressed with the results. My legs most definitely feel softer & smoother than they did before and I have noticed a reduction in the cellulite on my thighs and bottom, in fact its nearly all gone! I did say nearly!
Although the cream took a few weeks to show the effects I was impressed how well this cream worked. To be honest I wasn't too sure it would work, as half the products out there on the shelves never do, but this product definitely was NOT one of those.
I do still have a tiny bit of cellulite on my thigh's and bum, but it has been reduced significantly. After 5 weeks use, I still have plenty left, probably enough to last another 3 weeks at least. Although it's a bit pricey I would buy this product again when I run out!
Nivea is a well known brand and also a brand I trust.
I would recommend this product to buyers as it does has proven effects.
