I wish I could give this a minus, that's how much I dislike it!
I bought it based on the high score it has on here. I should have really read the reviews, not just the score; had I read them, I would have seen that the vast majority of reviewers who gave this product high marks also noted that it does close to nothing for cellulite! Yes, it makes skin softer and moisturized, but that's not the selling point of this product!!!
I'm looking for anti-cellulite products, which this product claims to be, but obviously fails to live up to its main claim. Had I wanted just a moisturizer, I would have looked for a moisturizer!
Having said that, I didn't feel it did much even as a moisturizer. It took forever to sink in, I don't particularly like the scent, and the glass bottle is not a joy to hold with a hand full of oil.
Of course my cellulite looked the same by the time I finished the bottle. The price however was high enough to make one expect a product that actually worked.
Would I buy again? Hahahaa!!!!!
though this did not do much for my stretch marks (i lost 50 lbs total), i did notice it got rid of my stubborn keratosis pilaris on my upper arms! i've used numerous scrubs and products and this is the only product that took care of them. And it smells divine to boot (unlike, amlactin)
If any skin product is going to help with cellulite ( and this is a big if ), this can be it. Maybe the fact that you need to massage it, makes all the difference. It does leave the skin smooth and supple though, and I think that after a while, this makes the skin appear more even and less bumpy. I also like ge idea of using a natural product.
I thought that most of the benefit would come from massaging, but having recently compared it to a Decleor body oil, I've changed my mind (that one was about 6 times more expensive and smelled like skunk on my skin). The product matters as well and this one delivers great results. Quickly improves skin tone. And yes, the smell is quite pleasant, doesn't get old.
As for the packaging, I'm re-using the Decleor bottle :) Their pump is nice.
When I bought this, SO said that I didn't have any cellulite. (i don't have a lot, but it seemed to multiply) After using it a couple of weeks he cheerfully remarked that it worked really well!
Don't know if I see a difference, but it moisturises very well, smells good, and if others think it looks better, I won't complain.
Like that it has few and good ingredients, comes in a glass bottle.
I will rebuy and have rebought this several times.
Only negative could be that I get oil on my towels, but that isn't really a problem.
Overall I'm pretty impressed with this product. It's not a miracle worker, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I have some cellulite though I am not overweight and work out regularly. I was searching for a product that might help, but I prefer natural and organic, so i was excited to find this. I've been using it for about a month and I do see improvement. Also my skin has become really soft and smooth. I did use the bottle up quickly as I was using it twice as a day as it recommends. I would repurchase, but might use more sparingly to make it last longer.
I love it for the scent alone, that is so very fresh, citrus and herbal like. Excellent moisturiser/nourisher for the skin, it does NOTHING for stubborn cellulite. Birch should be a draining/depurating extract, but trust me, for those effecta you must take it as a supplement (drops, tablets, herbal tea you name it), not in a oil that is applied topically... the real birch in it is so very little!
But I love the birch oil anyway, for its nourishing and smoothing effects on skin. And it's all natural!
I've been using a sample of this for the last week on my thighs, where I have mild cellulite.
I haven't really noticed a major difference, but I do love the smell of the oil (aptly described by a previous reviewer as a woody citrus) and how easily is absorbs into the skin. Gives you a moisturized feeling without the greasiness associated with oil-based products.
This product has the high quality of formulation that I've come to expect from Weleda, but I find in this case it doesn't do much for the condition that it's advertised for.
Great, great, great product! I haven't used a cellulite product before, but already I don't want to change it! This oil gives a great texture to the skin. I usually apply it twice a day, but sometimes I am in a lack of time and I use it only once. I sooo love the way my skin feels right after i massage it in my skin, it feels sooo light! It also smells really nice, citrus and woody. On the downside it is quite expensive, but the quality is superb. Also although I love the glass bottles, this specific one is hard to handle sometimes,especially if I have oily hands. But in the end who cares?
I got a vial of this massage oil in a Weleda sample kit and while I'm lucky not to be plagued by bad cellulite, I wanted to give it a shot based on my track record with Weleda's product. My cellulite is really only visible in certain lights and from a few particular angles, but after two weeks of massaging this oil into my legs, there was zero difference in skin tone. Not a big deal, but kind of misleading if it can't even improve mild ripples. On the plus size, it smells lovely -- a sort of light grassy-citrus scent. And it is very moisturizing and absorbs well. But I can't see myself buying the big bottle for those qualities alone.
$26 for a 3.4 ounce glass bottle.
