The season of cute denim shorts is officially here. This time of year can be filled with anxiety because after months of being bundled up in puffy coats and sweat pants it is now time to show off our….assets. If you are concerned with visible cellulite or you want to maintain firm smooth skin, then let me introduce you to the Firminator by Soap&Glory. This product claims to help visibly firm, tone, and reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin. The orange peel skin that is truly a struggle for many women is also known as cellulite. Cellulite is something that can affect women no matter how much they weigh. Eighty-Percent of women over the age of twenty have cellulite. It is the bumpy, cottage-cheese like skin that you see on the butt, thighs, and legs. Women are more prone to cellulite than men because we have a thinner epidermis. The best book I ever read on the subject of cellulite is the Cellulite Solution by Dr. Howard Murad. It explains the biology of how cellulite develops and nutritional informational that will help you be healthier while preserving your skin. I highly suggest you read this book if cellulite is a body care concern for you.
In addition to a healthy lifestyle (lots of fruits and veggies, no smoking, no tanning) topical products can make a difference in the appearance of cellulite. I decided to try out The Firminator for thirty days and then report back to my readers my results. I do not have very severe cellulite but I am interested in a body product that is hydrating and provides firming and toning benefits. I love Soap&Glory products and always have wonderful results with them. This brand is available at Sephora stores and sephora.com for $36
This product makes the following claims after two weeks of use:
1. 97% said of that after using this product their skin was soft
2. 67% said after use their skin felt more toned
3. 87% said their skin felt firmer
The product is meant to be used twice a day. I started using the product on June 1st so I could track my progress weekly. The Firminator contains three unique ingredients: D-Puff-&D, Energinseng-VC, Elasticboost-B. This firming complex in addition to peppermint oil creates a smooth tingling sensation when you apply it. Improving circulation is a key element in treating the appearance of cellulite and it feels fantastic on the skin. I apply it right after I shower in the morning and again right before bedtime. I am excited to see how my skin looks and feels by June 14th and again around July 1st. Hopefully I will be more than ready for the beach by July 4th. If you decide to try this product I would love to hear about it. Feel free to leave a comment or find me on Instagram (@sagebeautyblog)
