Women often feel cursed by cellulite, it can affect our confidence and we are always looking for a miracle cure to combat it. Cellulite has a long list of causes from hormones to genetics which means as a female, you are actually pretty lucky if you don’t get it.
Just because it is common, doesn’t mean we like it, and a new Australian made and owned product has hit the shelves which could potentially help us all – it’s by Elixia and titled “BodyShaper Contour Creme”.
I have the product right here in my hands, but as it needs at least 21 days to work, I cannot comment on the long term results just yet (I will come back after a month with a verdict – promise!) but I can tell you a little bit about this new innovation.
As you probably know, there are anti-cellulite lotions and potions everywhere and many are a waste of money, but this one is a little different and it looks like it has potential. Elixia BodyShaper Contour Crème has TPM which is a new scientifically proven “delivery technology” which allows the product to get deep into the skin…it isn’t just disguising the skin on the surface but works on the deeper layers too.
The other key ingredient is Tricellite Active which is a blend of concentrated products (think antioxidants and moisturisers) which is what gives it cellulite disguising abilities. Probably just as important as what is in there, we have a list of baddies which AREN’T in the BodyShaper Contour Crème – no parabens, formaldehydes, paraffins, artificial colours and dyes, synthetic fragrance, SLS, SLES’s and DEA’s.
I always love to hear statistics, and the company has done trials on real women who found the product reduced the appearance of cellulite by over 40% in 21 days. In 28 days, 96% of the female testers saw improved firmness and smoothness, 93% saw an improvement in the appearance of their skins health and 93% felt their skin’s tightness and tone had been improved.
I’ve been using the product for two days so far, and I am really looking forward to seeing how my skin looks after the full 21 days. I admit to having some unsightly bumps and dimples on my legs – and I had these even before I had children so I can’t blame my babies (unlike my pregnancy induced grey hairs)!
You need to use Elixia BodyShaper Contour Crème twice a day, they recommend about the size of a 50 cent piece with each use. For best results you need to massage it in (ideally after a warm shower), this will help to stimulate your skin and get deep into the layers. It has a similar consistency to a body lotion and only has a faint scent (which is a light cucumbery, refreshing kind of smell) so it isn’t overpowering. You can use your regular body lotion or potion over the top if you want to but it isn’t essential if you want to cut down on products.
You can use it on all your problem areas but avoid using it on any broken skin or straight after shaving, and never use it on your face!
The Elixia BodyShaper Contour Crème has an RRP of $99.00 for 150ml, which should last you four weeks if use according to the instructions.
