      A cellulite reducing and skin toning gel

      I am a massive fan of Soap & Glory and I received a few of their products for my birthday that I didn't already own... Result! One of these products was Slimwear which was probably because I am always moaning about my cellulite.

      What does the product do?
      Cellulite is caused by fatty deposits just under the skin which cause an unsightly dimpled effect and it most commonly found in the thighs. This product has been created in order to firm the skin and improve its tone by using a special complex to reduce the appearance my arch enemy cellulite.

      How do you use the product?
      The product is to be applied to skin that has just been cleansed. After dispensing the product into your hand, you need to massage it into the ski, starting at the knees and working your way up to your thigh. Doing this using a circular motion will help to break up the fatty deposits. It can be used morning and night, and should be used daily to achieve faster results.

      Packaging and Price
      The packaged follows the usual theme of using a gorgeous pink plastic tube with a flip top lid with retro pictures. This one features a black and white photo of a girl in a bikini who's probably never even heard of the cellulite in her whole life. The product can stand on its lid so you don't have to worry about it looking untidy when you are storing it. There is some extra information about the product on the labels and some writing to encourage you to eat well and exercise in order to see the results even faster.

      The product will cost you around £10 and for that money you will get 200ml. Soap & Glory products are frequently available on a 3 for 2 off in Boots so you could get a better deal there. The product is also available from a few online websites including Soap & Glory's very own.

      Aroma and Appearance
      The product has quite a shocking colour that I wasn't expecting to see when I first dispensed it from the bottle because it is a bright minty green colour. It has a consistency of a gel which and it has a light texture which is almost slimy. Not only does it have a minty colour but it also has a minty aroma too. It is very refreshing and most certainly awakening so it does help to get you going in the mornings.

      Application
      Because of the products consistency, it makes it very easy to massage into your legs because your hands glide over the product. It encourages you to massage the product into the skin because it doesn't really absorb on its own. It may be this massaging action alone that reduces the appearance of cellulite. As you apply the gel to the legs, you get a cooling and slightly tingly sensation. It doesn't itch or feel uncomfortable on my skin. You can dress fairly quickly after application so there won't be too much waiting around.

      Performance
      This gel does make your skin feel really soft and smooth so it must have some hydrating effects too. I think it does make your skin tighter and appear more toned. After my two weeks of using this gel, the cellulite on my legs looks slightly reduced but this may be because I am now massaging my legs twice daily and I have also heeded Soap & Glory's advice to exercise and eat better. Nevertheless the less, my legs look better since using the product.

      This product is by no means a long term cure of the pesky cellulite. I went two and a bit days without using the gel and I saw the results started to go backwards. I guess that means that there is no quick fix to reducing cellulite and that you have to use this daily if you want it to stay reduced.

      All in all, this gel has improved the appearance of my legs. The skin is more toned and the cellulite is less prominent. I think that this is also due to the massaging, exercising and eating better to but because this product is encouraging me to do these things then I think it works. It's not a miracle cure but it most certainly is a very welcome helping hand.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        This is not one of soap and glorys finest by any means

        I am a huge soap and glory fan and love trying out their offerings as they are a little bit more special than your everyday beauty products. I was extremely excited when just before christmas they had a mega promotion on the range in boots and I treated myself to a bumper box set as an early christmas present. Well it would have been rude not to!

        'Slimwear' was a product included in this gift set and if I am honest I would have not bought this on its own as I am a bit sceptical of the benefits of such a product. However, as summer is quickly approaching I dug this out of my collection and decided to give it a go. Described as 'an amazing puff draining peptide balm' (whatever that means) it promises to smooth and reduce the appearance of cellulite. In my opinion my cellulite is not that bad but would certainly benefit from any product that targets a wobbly area.

        It comes in an attractivley designed pink 190ml tube portraying a lady photograhed sunbathing in a bikini which is in line with the whole soap and glory range. The tube has a flip top lid, I would have preferred a pump dispenser as I have found the opening and lid to become quite gunky after a few uses. You only need a little bit of this product as it is a concentrated formula so a pump dispenser may control the amount of product used a little bit better. To apply you need to squeeze a little bit into the palms of your hands and then massage in circular movements into your thighs starting from you knees and moving upwards. When applying it made by legs feel cool so may not be a product for the winter, but this sensation was not unpleasant in any way. What was a little strange was the minty smell of the product which I found to be very over powering and couldn't help but think it would be more suited to a tooth paste than a body product. After emerging from the bath clean and fresh I found putting on such a strongly scented product extremely odd and was concious that others may pick up on this strange smell rather than any perfume I was wearing. The colour too was a little bit off putting as it was a pale green colour although I have to say the product sank into the skin very quickly and it does not discolour clothes or towels.

        I used this product for 4 weeks give or a take a couple of days and I have to say I have noticed a slight improvement in the condition of my thighs. They do feel slightly smoother however I have failed to notice any vast improvements in their appearance. I am impressed with the fact that I still have 1/3 of the tube left so it is a long lasting product. As mentioned before I bought this in a promotional gift set it currently retails at £9.45 in boots and I don't believe it is worth paying that much for it. Boots often run promotions on the soap and glory range so if you were considering giving this product a go it would be worth buying it during a promotional period.

        I am rating it as 3 stars as my thighs do feel a bit smoother, but I can't get used to such a strong minty smell. If I was given it in a gift set I would use it but I wouldn't purchase it on its own.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Seems good, but needs further investigation!

          I'm a massive fan of the brand Soap & Glory. Started in 2006 with the aim of helping women pamper themselves without 'spending an arm and a leg just to moisturise one', the retro pink and black & white bottles and packages are a familiar fixture on the shelves of Boots and Harvey Nichols. They're also available online from retailers like ASOS. The stated aim may not be completely accurate, as the products are often more expensive than brands like Dove or Radox, but most of them are high quality. Just after Christmas, a limited edition set of 10 discontinued or renamed Soap & Glory products was advertised on Boots for under £30. Being a huge fan, I of course picked one of these up!

          Included in the set were two slightly similar products, both designed as 'body contouring' gels. One was Return to Slender, part of the 'Spa' range (with blue packaging) which I will be testing and reviewing later. The other, which I decided to try straight away, came in the traditional Soap & Glory pink packaging.

          The product comes in a tube which opens at the bottom - handy for when you need to get lots of product out. The tube carries a black and white retro picture of a bikini-clad lady, who has clearly never suffered with cellulite in her life! The packaging states the brand name and product name and says that Slimwear is "an amazing peptide balm that firms, contours, smoothes and reduces the appearance of cellulite". It is a concentrated formula which contains a "triple action peptide complex" to target 'orange peel' areas. On the back of the tube, it is stated that "At Soap & Glory, we believe women - and whenever possible their thighs - should stand 'firm'".

          Instructions state that you should vigorously massage the Slimwear every morning after showering, by "using circular sweeping motions from your knees up toward your inner thighs". It's also permitted to apply the product at night too.

          The packaging says that users of the product who take exercise and control their diet will "see the combined consequences more quickly". To be honest, I'm quite cynical, I'm not sure how much effect a cream like this will really have. It's not something I would have bought myself, if it hadn't been included in the value bundle I bought. However, I was certainly willing to give it a try as I do unfortunately have cellulite - this is despite going to a gym three times a week for the past three years!

          On opening the tube's flip-top lid, the gel inside has a very pleasant peppermint scent, although it's nothing whatever like the usual Soap & Glory pink products are scented. The gel itself is a pale blue colour. In fact it smells and looks a little like toothpaste!

          I followed the instructions, massaging the product into my thighs every morning and night. The cream was thick and kept my skin moisturised - it also felt very cooling on my skin which was a pleasant situation. It sank into my skin quickly too. I did find that I had to use quite a generous amount for each application, perhaps BECAUSE it sank in so well.

          I found that the product lasted me six weeks when it was used twice a day, although the last week's use was only obtained when I cut open the tube after I couldn't get any more out!

          So does it work? Well, I didn't look at my thighs at all during use, as I just didn't have time. After I used up this product I took a good hard look at them.

          There was a definite difference. My cellulite hadn't completely gone, but I could certainly see a reduction in it. My thighs looked a degree firmer. This can't be down to diet or exercise, as I've gone to the gym three times a week for the past three years without previous effect, and my diet's been dreadful since I moved to London!

          Having said this, I'm not sure if it was the product that's achieved this effect, or simply the action of rubbing my thighs with circular motions twice a day! I've therefore given the product three stars for now, as it's definitely made a difference, but I'll update the review if I discover more. I'm off to use a different product on the area, so we shall see!

          Slimwear is priced at £9.45 a tube in Boots but there is currently an offer giving 1/3 off Soap and Glory products.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Seems to work a little

            One of the nicest things about having a job now is the ability to spend a little extra on treating myself every now and then . Not only does the job provide the money for this, but also the excuse - I've been working hard, and if ever I deserved a little treat, it's now . Especially as I've been working super hard at slimming world too - I've lost 2st 9lb so far.

            Sadly, this weight loss has not led to any decrease in cellulite . I, like many girls, have that orange-peel thing going on with my thighs, and would much rather I didn't. So, when I happened to glance at a tube of Soap & Glory slimwear in the shop, claiming it was 'an amazing puff-draining peptide balm that firms, contours, smoothes and reduces the appearance of cellulite' I was sold, especially as I'm a big fan of their fabulously scented products anyway .

            Like many of the other products in the range, this has a rather retro look to the packaging, with a black and white photo, and plenty of little verbal puns. I think Soap and Glory's retro look is very attractive, and certainly helps it to stand out amongst all the other brands available .

            Something else that stood out was the fact that this tube, when squeezed out, was green . I really wasn't expecting that - I'm used to most of my body creams being white, or cream coloured, and this slightly dogdy looking green tint was a bit of a departure from the norm . I also noticed a very nice fresh minty fragrance - not that awful powdery mintiness of toothpaste, but a proper clearing the nasal passages invigorating whiff .

            Massaging in this thick green cream ( in the thick circular motions as prescribed on the bottle) was a little odd, as although it spread well over the skin, it took a fair while to stop feeling sticky to the touch - I was sat in the bathroom nude for abuot five minutes waiting for it to fully absorb . Immediately upon applying it, I noticed a slight tingling of the skin - not an irritation, or an allergic reaction, but a cool tingling, almost like you'd have after applying a menthol muscle rub .

            It's recommended that you use this every morning after a shower - and honestly, I tried to, but I just don't have the time each day to spend massaging my thighs and bum cheeks, so over the course of the last month I've used this every other day . And not always in the morning either.

            Does it work ? Well, in all honesty, I still have cellulite on my thighs, but then, I do have a good ten years of crappy eating habits and very little excercise to overcome . It might be my imagination ( or equally, it might be additional weight losse over the last few weeks) but my thighs do look a titchy bit better - a little less blotchy and mottled, and a little more uniform in colour. They are also noticably softer, with the skin soft and supple . And they remain minty fresh - not that this worries me, as not too many people are intimately aquainted with the scent of my inner thigh, and those that are probably assume I've just made a little extra effort to impress!

            This costs £9 for a 200ml tube in Boots, but there are often multibuy offers on this range, so a little savvy shopping may well save you some money . I do recommend it, as I do feel there is some difference in the appearance of my thighs, and because, if nothing else, it seems to be doing wonders for my skin . 4 STARS .

              Disadvantages

              Nice looking product, smells nice not miracles yet!

              So I as most girls have thought at some point, " do I look fat?". I know I am not " fat" but I do sometimes think I can see dimples on the back of my legs.
              This summer I bought this product from Boots as it was on special offer (and i am a sucker for a special offer). Obviously you also get your Boots points for this, and this particular time I got a free make up back from the soap and glory range as well.
              I absolutely love the packaging of Soap and Glory it is so girly and fun- when I first opened this particular product I was a little shocked to see the bright green colour which I have to say did shock me, it smells quite strongly of mint, but its a nice smell.
              As instructed in the morning after my shower I rubbed the product on in a circular motion to the "problem area". I am yet to see any miracles, but in fairness I haven't been using it religiously. In essence I think it is a good idea and I will continue to use it to see if there are after affects. The product dries quickly on the skin so you can put your clothes on straight away, which is sometimes an issue with lotions and potions.
              Big tube which has lasted a few months so far, as I said I haven't seen the effects yet.

              I won't be buying it again

              Slim Wear Soap and Glory......


              I have rather taken to buying the Soap and Glory range and my section of the bathroom is currently mostly pink bottles of lotions and potions from this range. The range is relatively new and gives the impression of young and funky and this is something that I feel appeals t a lot of people.


              This tube of Slim Wear is something I have been using daily to really see if it does what it claims to do. The tube itself is rather large at 200 ml but did cost me £9. There are often good special offers on this range so I would suggest waiting until these are on to stock up on your favourite items.

              The tube of the product states "An Amazing Puff-Draining Peptide Balm That Firms, Contours, Smooths and Reduces the Appearance of Cellulite!" which of course with the summer being upon us sounds like something I need!

              I have been using it daily for a good month now and there is still a small amount of the gel in the bottle. I have to say that overall I have now really seen any vast improvements but to be honest I wasn't expecting there to really be.

              The design of the bottle is good as it sits on its lid which means that the gel is easily squeezed out of the bottom of the tube and every last bit of gel is easily used up. On the bottle it again claims to be a "Concentrated Formula".

              The gel inside the tube is a green/blue colour and is a cool gel rather than a cream of any sort. It is thin in texture but is slightly sticky before completely drying off. The smell of the Slim Wear is rather mint like and refreshing although I do have to say that the aroma, for me, is not overly appealing as I would much prefer something a little florally.

              The gel is easy to apply and the directions for application on the tube simply state "Vigorously massage in Slim Wear every morning after showering, by using circular sweeping motions from your knees up towards your inner thighs. Those ore dedicated to the cause can reapply each evening for round the clock anti orange peel action"


              So I followed the instructions but only applying it once a day and I can't say it was the nicest product to use on my skin. The mint aroma of the gel made is rather cooling on the skin and like I said previously the gel felt rather tacky before it dried in which did take a little while. The aroma which came with the product I didn't like either which didn't make for a good experience.

              The Slim Wear unfortunately didn't give any good results I felt and as it does clearly state on the bottle "REALITY CHECK - When it comes to fat, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Or even a free French Fry. Slim Wear users who control their diets and get regular exercise will undoubtedly see the combined consequences more quickly". This means that you shouldn't really expect this product to do much!

              So all in all would I buy this product again - No.

              I don't think it was overly nice to use and it didn't do anything for me. I think there are nicer products that claim to do the same thing that probably don't work either but have a nicer smell and feel on this skin. For me this is only a 1 star rating product and I wouldn't recommend it at all.


              Many thanks for taking the time to read.


              I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.

                Disadvantages

                Tightens up those thighs whilst looking girly and gorgeous at the same time!

                As a girl whose buns of steel were looking more like dimply dumplings, I decided it was time to take drastic action before summer!

                So I decided to try Soap & Glory Slimwear which I picked up in Boots (on offer for £6- usual price £9). Once again, the packaging is true to the Soap & Glory retro style- this is one cellulite cream I wouldn't mind leaving on the bathroom shelf! The cream contains a "triple action peptide complex" which promises to target "problematic orange peel areas"

                The instructions are to apply the product every morning after showering and (if you want to put some effort in), every evening before bed. After application (just ignore the fact its an unattractive green colour and smells slightly of menthol), there is a slight tightening sensation. The product sinks in quickly so I found you can put your clothes on relatively soon after application without any sticky moments.

                So does it work? I have to be honest, putting the product on just once a day, I didn't notice a huge improvement in my dimples. Once I started putting it on twice a day I think I did see a change. In terms of cellulite, I think the skin looked firmer and the skin tone was better but I am not entirely convinced it has made a huge difference to the amount of cellulite that was there (maybe I am expecting miracles as I certainly haven't started a new healthy eating regime or drinking more water in conjunction with using the product!)

                In summary- nice texture, easy application but with a slightly funny smell! Probably best for those who just have a small amount of cellulite.

                Not a miracle cellulite buster, but a good helping hand to slimmer thighs

                After reading lots of good things about the Soap and Glory range I thought I'd give it a go, and since I want to look good in my bikini on my honeymoon in May what better place to start than with a cellulite buster.

                Slimwear advertises a triple action peptide formula designed to reduce your cellulite as well as firming, smoothing and contouring. All you need to do is massage it in daily and it'll improve your skin's appearance.

                The cream comes in a pink retro looking tube featuring a slim model in a bikini. I like the 50s look- it's more fun than a lot of other body products. It also makes it clear that this is tested on picky women instead of animals; something I always want to know.

                The cream itself is thick and green and smells of menthol. While I found this offputting at first, it occurred to me that this was a good sign. After all, who'd keep buying a medicinal smelling green gloop if it didn't work.

                To use, you simply massage this into your thighs from the knees upwards in circular motions. It takes a while for the cream to be fully absorbed, but if all the body brushes out there are to be believed, this is part of the cellulite busting process. I found my skin tingled for an hour or two after application due to the menthol but this wasn't unpleasant. The smell lingered a little on my skin, but wasn't detectable through my clothes.

                So, the all important question... did this work?

                I've been using this for about a month now and while I still have cellulite, my thighs and bum are looking better. My skin is firmer and smoother, and it looks less lumpy. I was particularly impressed with how I looked in a shop fitting room with the notoriously unflattering mirrors they all seem to have. I fully agree with the statement on the package that this works best combined with exercise and a healthy diet, but it does speed the process up a little.

                Costwise, this is £9 for 200ml although currently on offer at Boots for £6. This has last me about a month which, considering the improvement I'm noticing, is good value in my mind. I'm still undecided though about whether or not to get more of this or try out the Firminator which I've also heard good things about.

                  Soap & Glory Slimwear

                  It's a wonder with all these people buying me anti-cellulite creams and scrubs that my body confidence isn't at an all time low! lol. Actually I think I got this as part of a Soap & Glory set for my birthday last year and I thought why not, might as well try it. If it turns out to be rubbish I didnt waste my money on it.

                  Application:
                  I must admit when I first opened this tube I was shocked to say the least. I was expecting a cream exactly like a moisturiser but when I squeezed some out of the tube I found it extremely thick and GREEN! Now the colour put me off slightly to say the least and it also smelt very strongly it could be said of mint. So really it was like massaging my legs with toothpaste!

                  Anyway you simply squeeze quite a large amount of this onto your hands (and don't think just because it is thick it wont just shoot out quickly!!) and begin to rub into your skin, wherever you think you need it and start to rub in using soft, circular motions. You will find that this will takes ages to rub in because of the thickness of the cream but that is a good thing because you are helping to break down the fat underneath the skin which is what actually causes cellulite.

                  The Claim:
                  This cream is said to be specifically designed for women who think they have cellulite or wobbly bits that need some help. Now this might be just me being silly but doesnt every women think her legs are fat or wobbly from time to time?!

                  It claims to firm, contour and smooth your skin all while reducing the appearance of cellulite!

                  Does it work?:
                  I'm not going to lie or pretend that my legs resemble an orange peel because they simply don't, but they could do with a little bit of toning up (without the bore of going to the gym!!) so this cream is perfect for me. You will not begin to see results straight away maybe after about 2 weeks of continues use you will start to see a noticeable difference in your skin appearance and feel.

                  Overall Opinion:
                  This cream will be perfect if your legs just need a tiny amount of toning up but not if your legs have a bit more wobbly bits than usually because then this cream simply wont work.
                  You wont see any results straight away, its not a miracle cream ladies! But after continued use it does work and your legs will start looking fabulous and cellulite free! The smell and appearance of this cream is very off putting but the results you get from it, you will soon forget about green cream :)
                  Recommended From Me

                  A 200ml tube of this cream will set you back around £9 from boots.com and should you have an advantage card you can collect 36 points with this purchase :)

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    An anti-celulite cream by Soap and Glory

                    Soap and Glory Slimwear:

                    In my quest for fitness and a slimmer body I am trying a ton of different lotions and potions to help me along my way. Unfortunately there are no good alchemists near me so I have to make do with Boots or other lovely online merchants.

                    Recently whilst perusing the virtual shelves on the Boots website I spied Slimwear by Soap and Glory. With a name like that I could hardly miss the fact it was aimed at us wobbly people, (or at least those who think they are wobbly), and decided to try it. I was going to by the Benefit version but this was much cheaper and so into the basket it went.

                    When the lovely postman arrived two days later I couldn't wait to try my latest goodies and so this got slathered over anything that jiggled with all due speed. I must admit I was very surprised when I squeezed a bit of this <supposed> miracle cream as it is a weird green colour and smells very strongly of mint.

                    The cream is quite thick but it is still easy enough to squeeze out too much if you are a bit heavy handed with the tube. Speaking of the tube it is an odd shade of pink like a lot of the Soap and Glory range and has the same witty, retro feel. Apparently this has a 'triple action peptide complex' which targets problematic 'orange peel' areas. Peptides are believed to help your skin stay elastic and are also known to make skin firm and often used in anti-aging products.

                    The smell is quite strong and this cream contains methyl which gives it a 'Vicks' like effect which really clears the sinuses. The cream is easily absorbed into the skin and leaves it feeling nice and soft and moisturised. I am really pleased with the moisturising effects of this product seeing as it isn't designed for that purpose.

                    As for it's firming and cellulite reducing effects I can report a change for the better but I can't really attribute it to any one product as I using so many in conjunction with diet and exercise.

                    For £9.00 this a fairly extravagant product but it works well as a moisturiser and I feel that I am getting benefit from it in the wobbly thigh and upper arms department. I am using this twice daily at the moment but once I am happier with the wibbly bits I will reduce it down to once a day or maybe just a couple of times a week.

                    Soap and Glory products are not tested on animals but the ingredients are a little heavy on the synthetic ingredients for my liking so I will be not using them frequently once this lot has all run out.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    An effective firming product - just not that miracle cure

                    In the never-ending quest to reduce my cellulite, I came across a product called Slim Wear, made by Soap and Glory. I have been converted to the Soap and Glory range over the past year - I think their products are fantastic, and really good value for money. OK, so they are not budget products but they are a great halfway house between the real low-cost ranges and the products produced by the major cosmetics houses. So, when I found that they did an anti-cellulite product, I was determined to give it a try.

                    So far, I must have tried out about 10 different products to try and tame the cellulite on my thighs and bottom - the only thing that has really helped is a Clarins product, but unfortunately since having a child, my budget can no longer stretch to that. Therefore, I was holding out hope that Slim Wear would be the one....

                    Like all Soap and Glory products, it comes in distinctive pink retro-style packaging. This 200ml tube has a 50s style woman reclining on a lounger in a bikini, without a hint of the dreaded cellulite in sight. There is a lot of text on the packaging, giving you a good indication of what the product is supposed to do. It claims to be 'an amazing puff-draining peptide balm that firms, contours, smoothes and reduces the appearance of cellulite'. It is a concentrated formula including 'triple action peptide complex' to target problematic 'orange peel' areas - sounds like exactly what I was looking for!

                    The product inside the tube is green, with a distinctive minty fragrance. It is a fairly thick consistency, but absorbs easily into the skin and you don't have to wait too long before you get dressed after using which is a definite plus point. It does feel slightly sticky at first but within a few minutes it has completely absorbed and leaves your thighs with a silky smooth feel. For best results, Soap and Glory recommend that you massage it in vigorously every morning after your shower, using firm circular motions moving upwards from your knees to the top of your thighs. If you are really dedicated to using this product, you can reapply it in the evenings as well for an added boost.

                    Like all Soap and Glory products, Slim Wear is not tested on animals. It does, however, have a really long list of ingredients - I'm not going to claim that I know what they all are, but if you're interested in that kind of thing, you can always read the back of the tube.

                    It is available for a normal price of £8.81 for a 200ml tube at Boots - however, there is almost always a promotion on Soap and Glory products at Boots. I have just seen that they are 1/3 off at the moment, making this a bargain at £5.87, and they are also often on 3 for 2. I feel that this is excellent value for money - it's as good a product as most of the things I've tried (with the possible exception of the Clarins one which cost about 5 times as much), so I would definitely recommend giving it a go.

                    So, does it work? Well, I can't say that it's got rid of my cellulite but that's probably a lost cause, short of some over-priced series of salon treatments or the discovery of a miracle cure! On the plus side, my thighs do feel noticeably smoother and firmer after a sustained period of regular use, and it works well as a moisturiser as well, so my skin always feels soft and smooth after using it. I think it helps with water retention as well - maybe that is the 'puff-draining' element of their claims. On the back of the packet, there is a disclaimer from Soap and Glory which says that Slim Wear users who control their diets and get regular exercise will results more quickly, and I would totally agree with that. This is NOT a miracle product which will give you smooth slim thighs with minimum effort, but combined with a healthy balanced diet, drinking lots of water and taking regular exercise, it might just help. And in the meantime, I think I will keep using it while hoping for that miracle...

                      Disadvantages

                      great

                      Soap and Glory is a great range that I discovered when I got a set of various products for Christmas and I must say that I have been adding to the collection ever since. They have a wide variety of products in the range that they have something for everyone suitable for any occasion.

                      Soap and Glory Slimwear retails at around £9, but if you have a chance to pop to Boots or go online Soap and Glory have a special offer on the majority of the products which is save a third which is a great bargain that is not to be missed.

                      This product is a great cream that helps to firm and reduce the appearance of cellulite which is what every girls wishes for as they try and eliminate cellulite and as there are some many brands that offer to do the same thing these unfortunately are in higher price brackets and are not worth it in my opinion as you cannot see visible results for the higher price tag.

                      This is a product that has a great minty fragrance that smells great but is not too strong that it is overpowering like some of the products in the range and it does what is says on the tube. This does not get rid of all of my cellulite and for under £10 I was not expecting a miracle, but I can see a firmer look to my leg, whilst leaving my leg smooth and moisturised. I apply morning and night for the best results possible.

                      Like all the products in the soap and glory range this is not tested on animals.

                      This product is a great product but if you are looking for life changing results then this is not a product that you should use, but for the £10 price tag it is worth it and you will notice the change and if you use it as part of a healthier lifestyle this can only speed up the results.
