When I first started using “firming lotions” I was going into it with the idea that it would magically make my cellulite disappear. Yep – you read that right – point blank, black and white, no bones about it – I have cellulite. And hey, you probably do too, but not because you’re not in shape, but because it’s HEREDITARY. Totally out of your control. You can all thank your momma’s for that!
I recently tried out Skinnygirl Smoothing & Firming Body Lotion, only this time, I wasn’t expecting a ‘cottage cheese’ miracle. I wanted tighter and softer skin, just like it promises.
Here are the things I loved about this lotion:
The smell – Cranberry Extract and Coconut Oil. YUM! And it lasts a long time on your skin!
The application – very smooth and creamy.
The effects – super silky skin that smelled great and was tight!
And a few things I didn’t like:
The way it came out – the mouth was WAY too small to get a good enough amount for your legs or torso
The moisturizing – It keeps my skin hydrated for about 2 hours. And in Denver, that is NOT long enough. I have to apply this a few times a day to feel like my skin is adequately hydrated, but when I do it, my skin is soooooo happy. (Which is why I included the effects under positives!)
I have been using it religiously for about 3 weeks and have really liked it, except for the lack of long-lasting moisturizing and how it’s dispensed in small ribbons. So, I’ve changed my routine to only use it on the areas that I would like to tighten and I screw off the cap to dispense like this instead…
You can buy this lotion only at Walmart for about $10.00.
