Sorry it took me so long to review this! Right after the event, I basically moved to Montreal to go through my flight attendant training and I've been *almost* living in an aircraft since.

This is my first experience with any cellulite or body lifting products so I don't have too much expectation to the product except for the points made during the launch.

Starting with the packaging, it's a squeeze bottle with the cap reminding me of the powered bottles where you need to squeeze it and it will not drip out.

It is in lotion form, very lightly tinted pink. The scent is pleasant, minty, and not over-powering.

I use the product every time I finish a work out following the massage video above. For example, I do my squats, shower then I will apply it to my thighs and butt working my hands upwards massaging with pressure. I feel the tingly, cooling feeling where I feel the lotion is tightening my skin. Helps cool off my work out - lovely sensation.

As for long term effects, I truly don't see a lot. The product is made for early signs of cellulite so it's probably cellulite that you have yet to see. I don't believe it's a miracle worker but it will do a bit of fixing over a very long period of time along with a balanced diet and exercise routines.

As for the price goes, it took me about 3 weeks to finish the bottle so for the price, it might not be worth is because that's about $20 a month for very little or close to nothing improvement. It's basically too small of a change to see with bare eyes.

For me, I think it's fun to use for an after work out to cool off my muscles but I wouldn't purchase this  with the idea that it will really tighten or eliminate my cellulite.
