Product Review: Bliss FatGirlSlim Cellulite Cream

Most women have cellulite, but FitSugar says there's basically nothing you can do to get rid of it. Deep down, I know it's not really a big deal, so I usually just let it go. That doesn't mean I have to love it, though, which is why I decided to try Bliss FatGirlSlim ($29). I read some reviews claiming that it worked, so I figured, why not.

Like many other cellulite-fighting creams, FatGirlSlim's main dimple-fighting ingredient is caffeine. Topically applied caffeine is said to burn fat on a cellular level just below the skin's surface, causing fat cells to shrink. Scientists seem to think this logic is a stretch, but I decided to see what happened after a few weeks' use.

For my full review, plus some unfortunate photographs of my thighs that will come back to haunt me someday,

I like the texture and consistency of FatGirlSlim. It's definitely a thick body cream rather than a thinner lotion, which somehow makes me think it's more serious than regular moisturizers. (The marketers have succeeded on that end.) The scent is lightly minty, which I also like. The instructions say to massage the cream into skin for 20 to 30 seconds, which I did twice a day for two weeks. My skin did feel superficially tighter, but I didn't see any drastic changes to my dimples.

And so, I present to you my right thigh. I took these photos wearing the same sleepytime shorts, around the same time of day, and in the same part of my house. One was taken two weeks ago, and the other one was taken today. At first, I was going to label the "before" and "after" shots, but instead, I'm going to let you guess which is which. Honestly, I can't see much of a difference, but maybe I'm wrong.

(I can't believe I just showed all of you my thighs.)

Anyway, I'm giving FatGirlSlim a star and a half. I hate to be that harsh, especially because I think so many Bliss products actually work wonders, but I didn't get anything out of this one. Sure, it felt tight and tingly, but the actual visual effect was a minimal improvement. While the cream does make skin feel firmer for a short while, it doesn't actually make a dent in the dimples. Like it or not, there isn't a magic cellulite-fighting cream. Or if there is, I still haven't found it.
