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.

I ve been using this product for more than a month now.I love the smell of it and the fact that my skin is very moisturized after use,almost for a day or so.I don't think that it has done a lot for my cellulite,but I will repurchase in the future.

You can get $5 off of this at iherb.com using the code UYE317. Bought this recently. Will update on how it works out for me!

Why would they package an oil in an open mouth bottle?
It just doesn't make practical sense.
I have to be extremely careful when I poured this stuff out otherwise I would get a greenish yellow stain on my carpet.
The actual product smells bad and doesn't do much. If you want something cheaper and less stinky try Nivea's goodbye cellulite.

On cellulite side: it helps a bit, but not nearly as much as Nivea L-Carnitine.
Big minus: No idea how it succeeded it, but for the first time in my life I have blood vessels visible on my legs :S:S:S

I use this product every spring & summer and I definitely notice that it diminishes the appearance of cellulite. The smell isn't too overpowering either.

I love this oil. I don't know about getting rid of cellulite but it worked great for fading marks from ingrowns and it smells great. It is a very nourishing oil.

This has a very pleasant smell and I like the fact that it is a natural oil rather than smearing chemicals all over my skin. It is a nice moisturiser and helps my fake tan go on smoothly. I massaged it religiously into my thighs with one of those wooden nodule things for about six to eight weeks prior to my holiday.I did this after dry brushing then showering. I did it at least twice a day. I do have cellulite. I had something called eporex treatment some years ago which I didn't keep up and it made bumps worse in the long run. I bought several bottles of this stuff due to it having such good reviews. A topical lotion aint gonna do much for proper cellulite. I know this, but with daily massage, I thought there may have been some improvement. It did nothing for my cellulite whatsoever. I think it gave me hives.

I love the soft citrus scent and really wish it would last longer, but its gone in a matter of minutes. My skin is so incredibly soft, smooth, moisturized, and glowing after I use this. Surprisingly it is not greasy at all, but absorbs quickly, just leaving the benefits behind. It hydrates my itchy, prickly skin so well I can actually skip and day and still have hydrated skin. Its totally worth the slightly longer time it takes to massage it in after my shower. I use it all over my body, not just my flabby-prone parts 'cuz it makes my skin just look so good (although I haven't used it on my face...might have to try that). Cellulite? I don't know if it helps or not, but I totally agree that its great when used with self tanner, which helps to hide flaws, and theres no doubt it makes skin glow, so the 2 together just make my skin look really healthy. I hate the glass bottle since I'm clumsy especially with oily hands. I'm terrified I'm going to drop it, so I always use it in the shower so at least I won't have try and clean it up off the floor if I do. But its a dark, glass bottle and I do believe it keeps the oils fresher longer. Its also pricey for an oil...as high as $26 for 3.4oz. The cheapest I've found it is vitacost.com for almost 1/2 that.

The Birch cellulite oil smells fantastic and helps to make skin on thighs softer. Thus, we might say that this products works fairly well to lessen dimples. However, it should not be viewed as a cellulite panacea, but just usual treatment.

This product always ranks among the top 100 on iherb, which sparked my curiosity. Like others, I love the scent and find it moisturizes well. It also did seem to improve the appearance of my skin overall, though I didn't notice a change in cellulite in particular.

This is one of my staple products. It has an instant firming effect. It is a bit thick, and a greenish shade, with a fresh citrus scent. Conditions and moistuizes skin very nicely as well as having the toning effect. It must be deep-massaged in to really penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Deep massage also promotes lymph drainage, which reduces the appearance of cellulite.
