Going on sale in the UK this week is the cellulite serum that apparantly gets rid of the look of cellulite in 9 minutes! It’s causing a degree of controversy because scientists think the claims are hokum, and yet Adonia are so confident of results they’re posting before and afters all over their website and offering a money back guarantee. Containing organic grapefruit oil, organic lemon peel oil and organic neroli oil to name but a few ingredients, the ones that are causing most science-y questions are the plant stem cells, which sound very fancy. However, it’s doubtful that plant stem cells could replicate any functions on the human body, but Adonia claim they ‘reawaken and reactivate your body’s own domant and weak skin stem cells.” The findings of Adonia’s trial claims a 47% reduction in cellulite after 9 minutes, and yet curiously only a 72% decrease after 6 weeks. I’m no statistician but that seems strange to me. The trials don’t seem to have been conducted against other products and I can’t find mention of how many women were trialled. Yet, a quick trawl through Google shows that there are many positive comments from users in the USA, so even if the plant stem cells do absolutely zip, the product seems to have garnered a firm fan base, even appearing in the Oscar goodie bags. It sells for £68, www.adonialegtone.com

Be careful with the website though, i ordered 1 bottle via there website only to be told my card was declined!! when i fact i knew i had more than enough in there to recover the cost, so i gave up on trying to purchase it, and then to my horror i realised after a week they had in fact taken 4 payments of 71 pounds!!! and i didn’t recieve the usual email confirmation or the product!!!! very angry and waiting for a representative from the company to give me my money back!
Hi, where will this go on sale in the UK? I’m dying to see more reviews of it, like yourselves the only ones I could find where ones on their own website and some ‘sciencey’ ones. Anyone else tried it??? Thanks
Hi Rachel; I actually picked up this from The Daily Mail so you might want to try their website. If you are looking for a cellulite cream that I feel really does the job, try Sisley Celluli Pro (and try not to wince at the price!!) BBBX
i ve purchased 2 as well and i never received confirmation email. i ve keep trying to call them but its always answer machine answering the phone and say they are so busy picking up. its been 1 week since my purchase . and i dont know what to do. i dont have a hope that they will send my goods..its probably dodgy made up company. IS THERE PLEASE ANYONE WHO MADE SHOPPING FROM THIS COMPANY OR KNOWS ABOUT THIS COMPANY??
I ordered the Adonia serum after I read a review in Daily Express. Unfortunately I did wait nearly two weeks for the products to be delivered, but was happy with the results when they finally did arrive.
I read about this the other day, not too sure I belive the science – how can something ged rid of cellulite so quickly? But their after pictures did look good. Has anybody tried it does it really work?
I don’t believe this works, but apparently they do a money back quarantee for people who try it and don’t like it. Doesn’t make a difference if they are not sending the product though!
it is only £59 accdoring to website
I placed my order several days after the first story ran in the Daily Mail. I received my shipment quickly and was very pleased with the results! This stuff really does work so I can see how they may have briefly had trouble keeping up with the demand. The company does ship from the United states so you do have to allow a little time for it to arrive and clear customs. My advice to others is that it is well worth the wait.
I ordered from the site the same time as the Daily Mail carried the story, they have had my money, but still no product. I have been sent a UPS shipping number (that took a month) but there is no tracking info on it. I’ve emailed them numerous times, and not heard anything back. I am heartened to read that people here have got their product, may’be it will arrive!
I also had problems with the delivery of this product, after reding the official statement I contacted their customer care email where I was sent a reply very promptly assuring me it had been shipped and have just recieved the product this morning. I am very looking forward to trying this and seeing if it does work
Got the product today ordered on the 5th March – however had to pay a further £12.12 for customs and royal mail shortage. Lets hope it works.
I ordered mine around 6 March. I didnt get a confirmation page but it arrived on the 21st March. So try not to worry as I am sure you will receive your products!
Ordered 2 bottles of Adonia (plus 1 free)at a cost of £126, on 6th March, finally last Thursday 2nd April they arrived. Or rather a card from the post office, saying there was an additional charge for custons for £16.35!! Not warned about that!!.
Anyway the product is rubbish. I did my own experiment, I moisurised one leg and put Adonia on the other. Instructions said wait 4 minutes, reapply and wait 9 minutes. I then asked my husband if he could see a difference, and guess what, he chose the wrong leg, then admitted what I could see myself, that there was no difference, none. I firmly believe the before and after photos are doctored, product does not work. To top it all, using it twice in the morning and twice in evening, I’ve used almost half a bottle in 5days. Please don’t waste your money, it’s an absolute con.
I received by order with no problems at all. I ordered on the 7th April and received on the 21st April.
I have used nearly half a bottle and have only been using it for 3 days, I agree on that aspect that you don’t get alot for your money, in fact there is a considerable waste of plastic in the bottle itself.
However as for the product itself, I actually believe it does work however wouldn’t agree with the 9 minute thing. Although I only have minor cellulite so it may in fact work in 9 minutes on people who have a considerably amount.
I have been to a clinic today where I have another procedure done and the nurse there said she could actually notice a difference. I’m going to order my next 3 bottles now so I’m convinced it does work.
Hope my experience has helped in some way. My motto is don’t mock what you haven’t tried (and at least try it for a week before you decide it doesn’t work).
I’ve been using this “miracle” cream for over a week and to date have not noticed ANY difference to my thighs! It cost me £68 and then another £15.50 customs charge to pick it up from the post office. I will keep using it but don’t think I’ll be so eager to pay this amount again, the 9 minute thing is definitely deceiving, believe me it does not happen!!
Hi, I am 25 yo, 170cm, 52kg, I have light to moderate cellulite on back of my thighs. I have ordered this product on March 2nd from company website, but i haven’t received any confirmation email -I became suspicious-. Anyways I had to wait two weeks for the bottles to arrive (I live in New York). I tried it on one leg to see the difference but nothing happened unfortunately. Then I tried it three times over and over again, but I observed no change. I asked my boyfriend and he could not see any change too. I called the company to return it and they told me that I should use it for a moth at least, then I kept using it and it has been a month but still no change, maybe a little bit but it must be due to massaging everyday thoroughly. Now i want to return the product but they don’t answer my phone or return my calls…
OMG! I ordered the Adonia Legtone last week 04/09 and received it yesterday 4/28/09. I used it as directed and I saw an amazing reduction of my cellulite.
I decided to experiment with other at home remedies for cellulite. This is what I did and it definitely reduced the appearance instantly. I am going to Vegas for Memorial Day and I really want to wear my daisy dukes……I can now.
1. Take a shower in warm water to open pores
2. Get some used coffee grinds and warm them up. Mix with lotion
3. Rub the coffee grinds into the troubled spots and rub in and leave on for about 20mins. Use newspaper…very messy.
4. Rinse off coffee grind mix with just warm water. You will notice a huge difference in you skin..Soft and tighter…Less Cellulite appearance.
5. Apply the Adonia LegTone to problem areas per the instructions.
Complete this process and you will look in the mirror and be amazed at what you see. Put on some heals and look again…..you will barely see the cellulite.
This is my second day following this process and with a healthy diet and lots of water…I am sure I will be ready for Vegas in 4wks.
Downfall to the Adonia……Small bottle they say will last for 30 or 60 days….I don’t know how this is possible unless I am using to much.
Upside to Coffee Grinds…Starbucks give them to you for free..No cost.
There is only one way to get rid off cellulite. 1) Rubbing your legs and your whole body with Turkish kese (Scrubber)at least 3 times a month (You must take a hot shower with shower gel before using kese to make your body ready for scrubbing) 2) Using sea salt as an exfoliator 3) using first warm and then cold water in shower 4)massaging with either rosemary or lavender oil. No woman on earth will ever have cellulite if they use kese regularly. And it costs around 1 Euro 🙂
I have moderate cellulite on the back of my legs which has caused me misery for years and I have to say I almost wept tears of joy when I read about this “miracle cream”. My husband bought two bottles (one free) for my birthday, costing a huge amount of money. I eagerly rubbed the cream on one leg as directed, waited 4 minutes and applied again. I then nervously showed my husband and we both agreed…..NO CHANGE! I have continued to apply every day and in exactly one month, I have used two bottles! Not impressed. I have to say that over the last few days though, I may have seen a slight reduction, but this could be down to change in diet and exercise. I wouldn’t recommend buying this cream and the 9 minute miracle thing is a sham! Please don’t be fooled like I was.
I ordered this product 4 months ago and it hasn’t arrived.
I emailed the company and was promised they would send another bottle.
That was a month ago and still nothing.
I have asked that my credit card be refunded in 14 days.
If it isn’t I’m going to take it to consumer affairs.
I ordered 3 bottles for the price of 2,on the 23rd May and i’m stil waiting.
I’ve had no shipping confimation and have emailed them an heard nothing.
I also tried atleast 5 times to previously buy it and it kept telling me my card was declined too.
I ordered this product as soon as I saw it mentioned in cosmopolitan and other magazines. I used it and after a week I saw so much difference in the reduction of my cellulite. Downside it takes so much time for the product to arrive that I honestly have to think about if I will order it again
The delivery was quite quick as I was in US, but very poor communication.
Unfortunately, the product did not work for me. I ordered 3 bottles for the price of two, gave a goal for a month applying every day – twice a day as recommended but it did not make any difference other than the skin been smoother.I tried to return a bottle but haven’t heard from them…waist of money!
I ordered Adonia Leg Tone on 24th of July and I am still waiting for my item. I sent a couple of emails and they were assuring me that my product was comming but it is septmeber and I don’t have it. I am really angry as they have my money and now I want to ask for a refund as I have the sensation I am not going to get it anymore. Has Anyone have the same problem as me?
Could someone please tell me what to do in case I don’t get my cream after 2 months and I don’t have a reply from customer service? Please let me know as I am desperate!
I order this last year, 3 bottles for the price of 2… it took forever to arrived, only to find out the product didnt work at all, its such a fraud, very desappointed… the only good thing i can say about them, is that they returned ALL my money back…. but its a shame they are claiming that this product do miracles, when it does nothing!!
Arrived on time. DOES NOT WORK!!! You are supposed to apply twice in the morning and twice in the evening for the 1st 30 days! This is time consuming – even if the pump works properly – which 2 of my 3 did not!!! regardless, it’s crap, don’t get sucked in due to desperation. please.
THIS DOES NOT WORK! So please save your money guys! It did NOTHING in 9 minutes, and after two weeks it STILL had no effect. Not only that, the size of the bottle is deceiving. The outer casing makes it appear to be a large bottle, but there is actually very little serum inside. I regret wasting my money on this before my holiday, please don’t make the same mistake.
Since losing a lot of weight, I’ve tried all sorts of things to tone up my skin (I eat a great diet & drink lots of water) & moisturise twice a day. I actually managed to get hold of a bottle on eBay for £40. I was very dissappointed by the size of it & assume I was using too much as it only lasted a week. I noticed no difference whatsoever.
For the past few weeks I’ve been using Bliss Fat girl Slim & at £25a week it is very expensive, BUT the results can be seen in noticably smoother & more toned skin….my fear is thay when I stop using it, my skin will return to how it was…i can’t spent £25 on it for life. I’m going to try rubbing my skin with coffee as the caffeine is supposed to be beneficial. I also use a leg magic machine and this has really helped my legs.
I ordered Adonia legtone and it arrived within a week. Fast delivery no problems. I was excited when I was reading about this product and could not wait to try it. Well once again I have been disappointed. THIS STUFF DOES NOT WORK!!! I used it like the directions said and nothing happened. Plus when I got the bottle it was NOT full. It was missing about one third of the cream. Dont waste your money.
I received my Adonia legtone yesterday and took before and after pics. It does work! If I hadn’t taken the pics I would be second guessing. I would agree that after 9 minutes I have about a 40% reduction in cellulite. The pics don’t lie. The bottle is only about half full though:( I will keep it up and take more pics in a month to really show the difference. Very pleased so far!!
