I was asked to test this product for a magazine review. I don't have all that much cellulite to start with, but I do have some. A series of very detailed measurements were taken before I started to use this, and then they were taken again after I had used it for 6 weeks. I did NOT use it twice a day as instructed, but I did use it once per day every day. At the end of 6 weeks, the circumference of my thighs was reduced by 3/8". My hypothesis is that someone with a higher percentage of body fat might enjoy a loss of even more in the way of inches. That said, I would NEVER purchase this product. I had a hard time making it through the entire 6 week trial. I've never used a more unpleasant product. It has an awful odor. I doesn't sink in. Even after waiting 20 minutes, it invariably stained my toilet seat. There have got to be other products out there that aren't so unpleasant to use, but which can yield similar results.

Very fussy product, you need to let ot DRY or get a gross dry-blood color stain on your clothes. PLUS it is ridiculously costly. Didn't work for me either. Disappointing. Wonder if I still have that receipt?....it is money-back guaranteed.

This product did not work for me. I religiously applied Lipoduction am and pm. I recently tried L'oreal's new Sublime Slim and I saw results within a couple of days. Save your $$ ladies; Lipoduction does not live up to its claims.

Update April 2005
Sorry ladies for the delay, little transatlantic move is to blame. Anyways, I've downgraded the rating because:
1. This stuff will stain your clothes (specially underwear) a nice shade of rust, and it never comes off in the laundry wash, so it's permanent stain.
2. there's no mention of the staining hazard anywhere on the package, only a mention to let the product dry before dressing up. Well even dry (as in dried for 45 minutes), the stuff will still stain.
3. Results? quite subtle, although arguably I didn't have a lot to shed. Maybe a slight filling in of orange peel aspect, but then again the stuff stains your skin and darker skin helps in that regard.
4. Outrageous price, this stuff should work period, without the shadow of a doubt. This is a product I don't recommend.
I've ordered this product on a risk-free basis (note on 4/2005: it would have been risk free if I had had time to get reimbursed before moving away). Before I update this review with actual comments, I wanted to list the ingredients:
