The countdown is ON! My Ibiza hen do is in only around T-7 weeks now and I need to get ship-shape for my bikini. Cue 1000% more gym visits, David Kirsch detoxes and slathering on lotions and potions that promise to tighten me up. I have just started using these two wonders from Dr.Ceuticals*, and so far, so good. Am I seeing results after one week? Erm, no, but I wasn’t expecting too. My skin does feel slightly smoother but I am expecting the results to become a bit more visible in a month or so. Thankfully me expectations ARE realistic and I know that it is a huge combination of things that will ensure I am firm and bikini bod ready in the next couple of months, but these will help me on my crusade.
The Tummy Tone
This promises to tighten, firm and slim the waistline within 28days. Brown seaweed extract is the key active ingredient and this is what will really help to tone and contour the waist. for best results use x2/day and combine with exercise and a reasonable diet. I apply this straight after my shower after I gym, so I’m only using it once a day currently. The formula is a really lightweight gel so it absorbs in quickly enough to get dressed straight away.
Beach Perfect Body Firmer
This is an all-over lightweight body cream that helps firm up the body, improve elasticity, hydrates and reduces the appearance cellulite. Key active ingredients include Coenzyme Q10, vitamin B3, seaweed, caffeine, coconut oil and shea butter. It’s a great all rounder, and I am really RATING this already. A lot of firming/cellulite treatments I have used are gels and really lightweight so don’t hydrate the skin at all, so you have to use the treatment followed by a body cream. This Dr.Ceuticals one is an all-in-one and has a wonderful buttery texture with absolutely no greasy residue so again, I can get changed straight after I have applied this over my body. This is for daily use, and I am using this in my gym bag so it’s applied straight after my shower, maybe 4/5 times a week.
I have used some crazy expensive cellulite, slimming, firming treatments with no amazing results so I see no harm in trying these, which seem to have very similar ingredients for a fraction of the price. The Tummy Tone is just £9.99 and the Beach Perfect Firmer is £19.99. Dr.Ceuticals is available from selected Boots and online.
