Hello again dear readers!
So today I have something special to share out. As you can already see I am holding Mary Kay's newest body product. And FYI this is also the first Mary Kay product that I own so I was very excited  when this stepped on my doorstep. Wohoooooo....

If your wondering what this product does, this is gel cream is supposed to help reduce cellulite. Do you know what cellulite is? 

Well cellulite is a term for lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. That means that it causes the skin to look bumpy and the skin ain't that tight anymore. But that is usually for serious cases of cellulite.
Cellulite is most common in adolescent and adult women so even if you don't think you have it, but if you look closely you might do.
Your body weight actually plays a role why cellulite occurs. Normally for those who used to be skinny and then gained fat, the skin that used to be tight will then be stretched due to the extra fat you've gained. This will cause visible lighter lines like a stretch mark be seen at your thighs and hips cause that is usually where a women gain fat faster.

How do I know this? Well will a little bit of research and experience of myself. As the years past I have been through a series of weight gain and weight lost, this surely has caused me visible cellulite lines. But not so serious, is just that I could see like lighter lines at my thigh and hips area which to me is really hideous since my skin tone ain't even anymore with those lines visible.

I also have been through a body checkup before and the expert said that I have cellulite problems but not so serious. So I went through treatment, but going through one treatment only wasn't enough. Since the first treatment was sponsored, the next one I couldn't afford much. So I didn't proceed with the treatment, besides at that time I thought since it wasn't so serious I still had time to improve my body condition. 

So when I was introduced to this product by Mary Kay I was really happy. First because this was my first product from them, second cause I really wanted to solve my cellulite problems. Even though I'm wearing a hijab and of course I would totally not show those areas to people, so why should I bother right? Hellooooo... even though I'm covering it all up, I still want to take extra care of my body cause that's what a girl should do. Its for self satisfaction, which girl don't want to look good especially when their heading towards and age suitable for marriage.

Anyways, enough of that. Let's get back to the review shall we.
So I have used this product for 2 weeks already and here is what I think about this product.


What I'm Loving
It works! I've tried this and I could barely see my cellulite. Not saying that its totally gone, but it surely reduced the appearance of my cellulite.
And since its at my private areas of course I can't show you the before and after picture.

My skin is definately smoother and firmer. I've noticed this with the first try.

It surely did tighten my skin, I noticed a slight change of appearance at those areas.

The packaging, I love how the cap has a lock and also that the bottle ain't gigantic. Its much easier to store since it doesnt take much space.

Its so easy to use, I'll apply it twice a day just like lotion. Really suitable for a person running around all day long.

The price! OMG RM180 I'm saying I love the price? That's pretty expensive.
Well just think about it, another way to recover this problem is by having treatment. Do you have any idea how much a treatmant for this cost? It cost more than this, plus with one treatment only is not enough. So I could say this gel is a much more cheaper solution to get rid of cellulite problems.


What I'm NOT Loving
The scent. Well at first, but the scent is adaptable. 
I can't describe how it smell, no matter how hard I think I can't figure it out. LOL
Since its made of glycolic acid, caffeine, argan oil, plus botanical and marine extracts so I think the scent comes from one of those.



This product is said to have been throughly tested and proven to give the results a women would want. And below are a survey they did with more than 100 ladies who have tested out this product.

After 2 weeks, 9 out of 10 women said their skin felt smoother.*
After 3 weeks, clinically shown to improve the appearance of cellulite and skin firmness.** 
After 9 weeks, 87% of women said it dramatically reduced the appearance of cellulite.*

9 out of 10 women liked what they saw in the mirror. 
86% said they felt more confident about how their body looked.
*Results reflect the percentage of women who agreed with the statements during a nine-week independent consumer study in which 136 women used the product morning and night. 
**Results based on assessment of improvement by an independent skin measurement expert during a 12-week independent clinical study in which 41 women used the product morning and night.

87% said they felt confident enough to wear shorts or a swimsuit. 
83% said they were ready to show off their legs.
*Results reflect the percentage of women who agreed with the statements during a nine-week independent consumer study in which 136 women used the product morning and night.


Overall I find this product really good. I'm tending to love this since I could see results, and I'm not sure if this product is also helping me to slim my thighs down cause my jeans now are really loose. LOL..

Anyways, till then peeps!
