[Review] Missha Cool Fitting Body Gel

Standard

finally a review on body gel!

saw this product at Missha at white sands and here’s what it says

looks like smthg i need!! let me show you my unsightly cellulite which plagues my thighs, its like a thick layer of jelly wrapped around a sausague.

disgusting…


you cannot blame me for having thoughts on lipo man

so yes, this looks like just what my legs need!! and skin whitening properties too! im sold.

the gel is light blue in colour, and when you squeeze it out you can smell the menthol striaght away.

this is the amount i squeeze for 1 thigh..

then i will rub my hands together for like 1 second or slap in on my thigh and start massaging it in from there:

feels normal and i will keep on massaging on my entire thigh for 1 min. repeat on the other thigh.

5 min later.

the cooling sensation kicks in. you can really feel the menthol ‘burning’ your skin, and feels like a sudden drop in temperature, as if there is cold towel wrapped around your thighs.
i am thinking if this is just a ‘marketing’ gimmick to add menthol to give the impression that your skin is tightening. you can also smell the menthol like feng you.

other than that, skin is not sticky or greasy, in fact smooth and back to normal. i can even say its smoother.

once you go rinse your hands after application, you realise the ‘smootheness’ also washes away and you can feel the gel coming off your skin as well.

i have been using this for a month, once a day. sometimes i skip but i think abuut 5 days or so i didnt use it. i didnt see see any improvements in my dimpled orange skin… compare to the Clarins High Definition Body Lift, which i feel has better results and smells better too.
skin feels slightly tighter and smoother but does not ‘shape’ my thighs or reduce cellulite appearance which i expect.

I still have half a bottle left, will use finsih and update if i see better results!!

[Review] Clarins High Definition Body Lift

Standard

to all ladies out there whom have this consistant grumble from yourself or bfs =P about the stubborn cellulite on your thighs… i have good news for you!

recently bought the Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Lipo Drain Serum, and tangs was having a promotion which comes with a FREE 100ml of Clarins High Definition Body Lift worth $42 SGD. i would have bought the lipo lift serum online which is much cheaper but i succumb to the high definition body lift, which promises this: “The patented formula of Clarins High Definition Body Lift combines 8 plant extracts to reduce the appearance of cellulite and ensure smoother, more toned skin” (yes im a sucker for these kinda things)


– Contains active microspheres that melt into skin to deliver increased absorption of ingredients upon application.
– Minimises the appearance of cellulite, helps redefine hips and thighs by providing skin with a gentle lifting effect.
– Visibly enhances skin with dual-toning and smoothing action.
– Restores balance by moisturising and nourishing skin.
– Refreshing and cooling cream-gel texture helps tighten tissue encouraging toned and firm skin.

Here is a close up of the content:

pinkish gel-like texture with red beads (the “microspheres”?)

Although the instructions says apply from ankle to waist, i only applied it to my thighs every night, since there is where my most visible cellulite are, and this bottle is only 100ml as compared to the regular 200ml you get off the shelf. i would also gently massage this in upward strokes as recommended on the bottle.
the smell of the product is sweet and minty, and you can feel the minty tingling sensation on your skin as well. its not overpowering and the legs feel cool and smooth. i like that it does not leave any greasy feeling on my skin as well.

I have alot of cellulite on my thighs and bums area. and it has got to a stage where i do not have to squeeze to see the cellulite :((((!!
and when i gently tug or squeeze my thighs, i can see alot of dimples all over whcih really bothers me.
I started using this daily every night after shower since 2 weeks back. i rmb taking measurements and storing it on my iphone but now its missing when i want to find it.. so argh!

i do not have a before photo (too horendous), but here is a photo of the after:


I have to say I am impressed by the results! i pinched really hard and i can barely see any obvious dimples on my skin. previously, a gentle pinch for twist on my thighs can see alot ugly cellulite. even sitting with my legs crossed on a chair can see man. 😦
this really works in reducing the appearance 🙂 i would not say this gets rid of cellulite per se, but can only reduce the appearance, which is good enough for me and what i expect from a gel without going for lipo.
i am more confident when wearing shorts now too! i would definitely go for a full size bottle once this is done. Retailing at $82 for 200ml or $63 at best buy world!
