Pretty much everything I’ve ever read about topical cellulite treatments says that they don’t work–maybe for a quick fix or to make you feel better mentally, but nothing you slather on your thighs can do anything to remove cellulite for good. It’s a totally normal phenomenon, not based on your weight, and caused by patterns of connective tissue beneath the skin that cause dimpling. But no matter how normal cellulite is, and how many doctors say topical treatments don’t work, we all love beauty products that claim to have the answer.
But since cellulite is genetic and there’s not a lot you can do about it even if you work out and eat right, why spend time worrying about it? Just be thankful you’re not a celeb whose ass is on the cover of US Weekly during their “Best & Worst Bikini Bodies” issue. Gah.
In my last Beautyfix shipment, however, I received a sample of iQ Derma Firmaceuticals Firming Body Gel–a highly concentrated gel that is suppose to targets cellulite and smooth and firm the appearance of the skin. I assumed it was going to be another do-nothing cellulite treatment, but the online reviews are nothing short of amazing. Maybe they all just want to believe it’s working? Hmm… Anyway. I’m going to try it out and will let you know if something miraculous happens.
