I love this stuff. I definately see a difference from when I do and do not use it. My skin looks a lot smoother and kind of "plumper" when I do use it. However,if you are looking for a full body lift, call a surgeon because lotion isn't going to do it for you.It is runny and it has it's own smell, but that wears off pretty fast. It's a fresh smell not floral, so that is nice.I pick it up for $5.99 and think it's great at that price.
Never mind that it didn't firm my skin -- it isn't even a good body lotion! It has a slippery texture, doesn't absorb well, and the sent is so strong it could knock you over backward!
I didn't use this product long enough to see results because I couldn't stand the smell. I was told by my family that this was great but I have a sensitive nose and after one use I absolutely hated it. The smell made my nose stuffy and I couldn't stop sneezing, my boyfriend wouldn't come near me and my roommates said they could smell me down the hall (no joke lol). I ended up giving this to my cousin who introduced this to me. I'm sure it's a great product but just not for me. This was the most I'd ever spent on a lotion and I was disappointed.
ok 3 lippies. Why?
- not expensive
- good as a moisturizer
- improves skin texture
Not so good stuff:
-no serious firmness
-smells not so nice
I have used almost a full bottle of this, so been using for several weeks. I have noticed only light firming. But this is not moisturizing at all for me! In fact, it is the exact opposite, it has a drying effect on me. In places where I do not normally have problems with dry skin, this product has made my skin papery and is lightly scaling and peeling. I have had to use shower scrubs and a heavy duty moisturizer at night to try to combat the dryness. I will continue looking for a firming lotion that is actually moisturizing!
If only I could give this 4 lippies for skin improvement and a negative 20 lippies for smell...To me, it smells like liquid molten plastic. I had to let my skin air out before dressing so my clothes didn't smell. However, my cellulite looked considerably more toned after using this for a week. But, after a month, my stretch marks (yeah, I know, cellulite and stretch marks, I'm a pretty girl) seemed more fragile and more papery somehow. Normally, they just look like white marks, but this did something to the texture. Anyway, it was reversible. I went back to Dove and all was back to normal after a couple days.
I haven't completed the two weeks or doing it twice daily but so far it seems to work it makes my skin feel soft and i notice some firming in my thigh area.
This stuff is really good as a basic moisturizer. It isn't too greasy, makes my skin so soft and just feeling really healthy, in addition, i really like the scent, which is kinda powdery but light and does not interfere with the perfume. I don't know, maybe it wont give you a miraculously firm body (it's just a lotion after all) but it leaves skin feeling well and looking so too. Worth to try, imo.
Bought this due to the good reviews here on MUA. Must say a COMPLETE dissapointment!!!!! Not sure where the last reviewer bought hers....but I paid nearly $10 for this awful stuff at Walgreens and for the lackluster quality, WAY over priced....
Once I got past the extremely runny/watery consitency, which is a complete pain.....and that god awful overpowering stench, ugh! I shudder to think of it now!!!.... I found it to leave a greasy/heavy feel to my skin for a very long period of time...not to mention that negatively pungent aroma that lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts....... All in all, an absolute waste of my money as in the trash it went. For anyone that has sensitivity to overpowering scents, STAY AWAY! I don't have that problem and I couldn't take this stuff. Maybe it works who knows...but to take that scent, runny consistency and heavy greasy feel on a daily basis to test that theory, no thanks! If I could give it a zero, I would.....
My favorite everyday lotion. For me it's even better than a lot of the expensive/department store stuff. I use this daily and I have noticed a slight firming, or at least my skin on my body just looks very healthy. This body lotion is pretty thin in consistency which I like because it's easier and faster to spread. Even though it's a thinner consistency, it still seems to be pretty rich on the skin because it leaves your skin so moisturized that it is glowy and shiny but not greasy to the touch, just soft. Once applied and absorbed in to my skin, it moisturized really well without making me feel sticky-ish. Totally soothed my dry itchy skin, and did not burn when applied to my legs right after I shaved (which is big for me because most lotions do burn a little at first). The ingredients are actually pretty good. It isn't just cheap ingredients like a lot of drugstore body lotions,... there are actually some decent vitamins and moisturizers in this product which is what made me try it. This is awesome for the price. The only other body moisturizer I like as much is Gold Bond Ultimate CoQ10 body lotion (but it's a much richer consistency formula- it's more of a body butter- I use that on and off- it takes a little more time for me to use but it is very nice as well). The smell isn't bad or that noticeable after a little while, and it most importantly, does not interfere with whatever perfume I wear. I think it is really, really good, especially if you prefer a thinner texture lotion like I do. Since I started using this lotion, my skin seems much softer and more hydrated even before applying so I know it's made a difference. I will be repurchasing again without a doubt.
