I am sure you know that cellulite and body toning creams are targeting that dreaded dimply orange peel skin and fatty rolls but did you know that they are also formulated to reduce toxins and water retention? So you must know that toxins get flushed out... when you pee... or number 2. Rui Branco from REN offered that last little glamorous tidbit of info when I was invited down to Escentials for a tip-toe through the REN line. Makes sense.
I try not to wear my Spanx on days where I am lathered up to the tits nines with cellulite cream because let me tell you - not sure if its the power of suggestion or the fact that I am 42 and the mother of 3 vaginally birthed children - but I truly feel this to be true. [Spanx is certainly not made from materials that can easily slide up and down in a non-humid climate so add Singapore's humidity and Harry Houdini himself couldn't do this with ease.]
Do cellulite and toning creams work?
I am going to go with yes on this one - but don't be delusional about it. You can't gorge on McDonald's and then dip yourself into an anti-cellulite cream. As a beauty pro who has yet to take any invasive measures I have lathered and serum-ed my face and neck religiously since 2004 and cellulite cream for over a year now. I can confidently say I do notice a difference when I skip my body lotions and potions for a few days - my skin doesn't feel as firm and moist. True story. Not lying to ya. No kickbacks here.
I do have cellulite but according to my way younger BFF who wouldn't lie to me - I can still rock a mini and besides, my dimples are mainly visible when I cross my legs... Mainly. Sigh. Why the hell is that cute on babies but not us?? I guess if someone deemed it unsightly for babies we would have cellulite cream for infants... Give it time - some crazy will market that.
My fave cellulite creams tried and tested:
Both NIP+Fab and Rodial have various targeted treatments:

*Rodial is NIP+Fab's big sister and has 3-5 active ingredients vs the 1-2 that little sis has - conclusion: Rodial is better for us aging rockstars.
