Unwanted cellulite? Latest 7 puts the best lotions for shifting orange peel to the test
Estee Lauder body performance slim shape advanced visible contouring system £30.50 available from Boots, Debenhams and www.esteelauder.co.uk
This is easily applied without the need to massage into the skin, drying?quickly and leaving no greasy or sticky residue. It has a minty smell,which goes as soon as it’s dry, leaving the skin with a cool, tingling sensation. My skin feels?smoother and I can see an improvement in its appearance. The only downside is you can’t see how much product is left in the bottle.?
DOVE Spa De-Dimple intensive cellulite minimiser £49 available from www.dovespa.co.uk
A two-week treatment, perfect for pre-holiday. You don’t need to worry if you’re using too little or too much as there are 14 small bottles. This also means you won’t skip a day with being ‘too tired’ as an excuse. Teamed with the effort of drinking more water, skin definitely had a healthier glow and smoothness – both to look at and to the touch.
Elemis Cellutox Active body concentrate £30 available from www.timetospa.co.uk
I have only ever tried the Elemes facial products before this. I love their fragrance and texture,and this is very similar.?It feels quite greasy but does absorb evenly. I don’t feel there has been a reduction on the cellulite areas, but my skin feels a lot smoother and radiant. I would recommend this product as more of a massage oil; you only need a small amount, so it’s good value for money, and comes in an elegant bottle.
Paul Penders body firming cellulite serum £32.25 available from www.thenaturalskincare company.com
A gorgeous rich lotion from the Malaysian rainforest, with herb and cocoa bean shell extract. This had a lovely scent – light and herbal with a hint of sweetness.The pleasant green lotion felt lovely and smooth when massaged onto the skin, leaving it immediately softer and smooth. The whole area felt toned and I have high hopes of good long-term results.
Laidbare Naturoceuticals ‘butter me up’ organic shea body butter £15, available from www.touchmyface.co.uk
With no complicated instructions it was just left to me to slather this waxy luxury on. Feeling substantial to grab, it didn’t run and needed working in a bit. The benefits of the shea butter combined with the massage left my skin feeling soft, smoother, and smelling lush.
