Sit back and relax, an epic war is about to begin!
About a month ago I received a huge box with Bioten goodies! Wanna see what was in the box?
2 new product lines, an anti-cellulite one and an anti-wrinkle one! You know which one I was most eager to try, right?
The full Cellufight! line consists of
- exfoliating shower cream
- anti-cellulite massage oil
- anti-cellulite drainage gel
- anti-cellulite massage cream
Ingredients are written on the tube, just click to enlarge.
The tube contains 200ml of product and it's semi-clear so you can see how much product is left.
It's a white cream with crushed olive stones for exfoliation. It contains no parabens, Vitamin E and guarana which, according to Bioten, contains 2-3 times more caffeine (guaranine) than coffee or tea, without the secondary effects of caffeine. Sounds perfect! It's not too harsh nor too soft so I usually apply it on my legs, arms, thighs and back. Exfoliation is a strategic step in the anti-cellulite war so don't forget it. Plus it makes skin super soft :)
Next product is Anti-Cellulite Massage Cream
As you can see this cream also comes in a 200ml tube with the ingredients written on it. This tube is not clear though. The cream is thick and white. It's not difficult to get absorbed but you have to wash your hands twice after application. I prefer to apply it at night and wait for it to sink in the skin.
This product is also paraben free and contains guarana, more caffeine, less secondary effects, we already said that. It also contains marine algae, which many people believe this is the most effective ingredient in anti-cellulite products. And black pepper which helps circulation and stimulates blood flow. Meaning your skin will go red and burn after application. And scare the hell out of anybody who sees you! LOL!
And last but not least, the Anti-Cellulite Drainage Gel
Also comes in a 200ml opaque tube with the ingredients written on. This product is a hot pink clear gel. It gets absorded more easily than the cream which is why I like to use it in the morning when I don't have much time before getting dressed.
This product is also paraben free and contains the same active ingredients as the cream, guarana, marine algae and black pepper. This will also make your skin red and burning.
All 3 products have a strong pepper smell. I like it but you may want to smell it before you buy it, just in case you don't like it.
Exfoliating Shower Cream is a good product, it makes my skin soft without being too harsh.
Anti-Cellulite Massage Cream and Anti-Cellulite Drainage Gel will both make your skin go red and burn. The first time I tried them it was a bit of a shock!! They work better if you use them twice a day. Since I have both of them I use the gel in the morning and the cream in the evening. The cream is thick and won't absorb that easily. Both products leave no residue. You don't have to shower before using them, I mean if you use it in the evening and then you want to use it again in the morning, your skin will be clear, no oiliness or heaviness left behind. Thumbs up for that because most anti-cellulite creams are heavier.
I can't say that they are miracle products that eliminate cellulite but I believe they help a lot. I try to work out more, drink more water, eat healthier and hope to be decent in my bikini this summer :D
Since these products contain black pepper, you shouldn't use it if you have very sensitive skin with visible veins or blood vessels. You shouldn't use them after waxing or sun exposure. Not for use by pregnant women or while breastfeeding. Do not apply on the face and make sure you wash your hands really well after application.
Would I recommend them?
Yes. I will continue using them and buy them again. If you can only afford one product I'd suggest the Anti-Cellulite Drainage Gel. I also want to buy the Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil, which doesn't burn, for more sensitive areas like my belly.
Availability and Prices
Bioten products are available in Greece and Cyprus. I'm afraid there isn't an online shop yet. But if you want to try them and you can't find them send me an e-mail, I'm always happy to help you! :D
Massage Cream and Drainage Gel cost €8.95 each.
Exfoliating Shower Cream and Massage Oil cost €6.95 each.
Pretty affordable, right? And keep your eyes open for packets of 2 products for reduced prices, Bioten always has offers like that.
So, tell me. What's your weapons in this war? Or is there no need for you to fight? If yes, I really really envy you! ^-^
Have fun and enjoy the nice weather dolls! <3
