Now, I’ve never believed in cellulite creams. Nothing works but exercise, massage and a healthy diet.
Not until I tried Nivea’s Firming Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream, R79.99. Now I have started to up my exercise regime and have started eating more healthily for the summer, so these do play a big part in the reduction of the appearance of my cellulite. Also, just the action of applying a cream of any sort will help reduce cellulite because it will help drain the area of toxins (which is the cause of the appearance of cellulite). But I do think that this gel-cream has definitely helped to disappear faster.
This is what Nivea says about the cream:
NIVEA Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream with natural Lotus Extract and skin’s own L-Carnitine visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite.
L-Carnitine is a substance that is naturally present in the skin. It is known to be involved in the fat metabolism – more specifically it supports the conversion of fat components into energy. A sufficient amount of L-Carnitine in the skin is therefore beneficial.
NIVEA Research has made L-Carnitine available in a gel-cream: NIVEA Body Good-bye Cellulite. Additionally this gel-cream formula has a cooling effect which leads to an activation of blood circulation.
Thus: regularly used the NIVEA body Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream leads to a visible reduction of the appearance of cellulite at the respective body parts.
I do feel a slight cooling effect when applying the gel-cream, and a few minutes later, my legs feel a bit warm. So it does increase blood circulation to the areas it’s been applied to.
