Various creams and lotions for lifting, firming and smoothing specific body parts have been around for years (hello, Clarins Bust Beauty and Nivea Good-Bye Cellulite Cream), and while I doubt that any over-the-counter cream will make the dimples on my thighs disappear, I’m not against trying anything once.
I’ve been testing two new products lately, one from Nude and one from Lush: Nude Advanced Probiotic Skincare Smoothing Body Refiner ($70) and Lush Lovely Jubblies Breast Cream ($25).
Nude’s lotion uses something they call bioactiv fig, along with mountain ash, ginger and ginkgo to supposedly increase circulation and metabolize fat. With an infusion of tiger lily petals, beeswax and avocado oils, Lush’s cream is supposed to tighten skin and “soften your melons” (LOL!).
I haven’t noticed softer melons yet…but I’ll keep trying! Oh, and both of these products smell fun-kaaaay. Nude Smoothing Body Refiner has a fragrance that totally reminds me of canned black olives (?), and Lovely Jubblies smells exactly like crazy strong incense, weird!
