Big thanks to Louise at www.loulouland.co.uk for testing this one out for me.
“A little while ago I responded to a request from the lovely British Beauty Blogger who was looking for bloggers to try out some anti-cellulite products – she was kind enough to choose me and sent me the Nivea My Effect Good Bye Cellulite 10 Day Serum to try out. OK I admit it I have cellulite, I am a woman, I am a bit overweight and I am on the wrong side of 30 – a perfect candidate for those annoying dimples. I’ve tried lots of products before with differing results but this one was a bit different to anything I’ve previously tried. In a easy to use pump action dispenser, this product isn’t in the usual cream formation, Nivea actually describe it as a serum. It has a thick gel texture that massages easily into the skin, leaving virtually no stickiness. Containing both Lotus extract and L-Carnitine, which are have been shown to reduce the formation of fat cells, and to increase the breakdown of fat, this pleasant, fresh smelling gel claims to reduce the appearance of cellulite in just 10 days. Well I gave it a try – I massaged the product into my thigh area once a day for 10 days, as I say it absorbed easily without any stickiness, it felt slightly cooling and tingly on the skin but nothing overly uncomfortable. I have to say in those ten days I didn’t see a huge lot of improvement but my skin did actually feel better – it felt a lot smoother and tighter both immediately after application and as time progressed. Nivea recommend you use this product alongside their Good Bye Cellulite Gel for an intensive treatment so maybe this would aid the effectiveness of this serum. This is something I might try in the future to see if the results are as good as they claim but in my opinion the serum on it’s own doesn’t offer the mircale cure I’m looking for :(. Nivea My Effect Good-Bye Cellulite 10 Day Serum retails at around £10.75 for 75ml.
