Hey lovely people!
So you know how I’ve been eating healthy, trying to exercise & generally lead a better life in order to get into a shape? If you missed that post, click here! Now, despite my best efforts, I still see stubborn cellulite on my thighs & bum Since I started exercising, they have certainly reduced dramatically, but there still are traces of them that is kind of annoying. And to be perfectly honest, my cellulite bothers no one else except me lol, but since I do like my share of skirts, dresses & shorts, I’d love to have smoother & nicer looking pins, instead of dimpled & wrinkled looking thighs ❤
Right in the nick of time, the Mary Kay TimeWise Body Smooth-Action Cellulite Gel Cream landed in my mailbox! This product, which just recently launched in Malaysia promises to ensure cellulite looks less noticeable and skin that feels tighter, looks firmer and smoother.
The cellulite gel cream (yes, gel cream!) contains glycolic acid, caffeine, argan oil, plus botanical and marine extracts and combines them into a powerful formula that visibly minimizes the appearance of stubborn cellulite and recaptures skin’s youthful appearance.
Usage Directions: Since this product is designed for the busy, young modern working woman, all one needs to do is to apply the lightweight gel cream twice a day to cellulite-prone areas, just like how we would a body lotion, massaging thoroughly into skin until fully absorbed.
According to Dr. Michelle Hines of the Mary Kay Skin and Clinical Research Laboratory, she says, “Since cellulite is a major body concern of women worldwide, Mary Kay has invested years of research into creating a product that would give women the power to dramatically reduce its appearance.”
“The TimeWise Body Smooth-Action Cellulite Gel Cream incorporates highly effective ingredients that target not only the look of stubborn cellulite but also the reasons why it can become more noticeable. Like all Mary Kay products, it’s been thoroughly tested and proven to deliver the results that women want.”
Personal Thoughts: First of all, let me start with the whole gel cream idea. The moment I pumped the product out, I loved that it was lightweight just like a gel, but smooth & velvety just like a cream. The product is a light pink opaque gel, which smooths out & absorbs very quickly into the skin. Scent wise, it smells very much like the Dewberry perfume from The Body Shop, and I love it! ❤ I even got my girlfriends hooked onto the scent, and they agree that it smells bloody amazing! It smells like sour berries, floral, & sweet at the same time 🙂 Texture wise, it’s just like a lotion, and very light too.
I’ve been using this for about 6 weeks now, and so far my thoughts on the Mary Kay TimeWise Body Smooth-Action Cellulite Gel Cream are a little ambivalent. While I do like its scent, texture & concept, I didn’t really see it working for me.
For someone who has minimal cellulite like myself, I guess it would be fool-hardy to think a cream would be able to get rid of cellulite that even hard exercise can’t get rid of. For someone else who may have more cellulite than I do, I would assume this would work better & more efficiently on them. So if you do have a tonne of cellulite that you would want to get rid of, but just don’t have the time to up and go to the gym, you may want to give this a try. 😀
Wrapping things up, who may like this? Someone with a lot of cellulite, but with no time to get rid of them. Who would not like this? People who have extra tough & stubborn cellulite, like me. *Le sigh* Also the price tag is slightly hefty for most people as well.
The Mary Kay TimeWise Body Smooth-Action Cellulite Gel Cream retails for RM 180/177ml and is available from the Mary Kay website & their official direct sellers. For more info, the useful links are below.
