Five firming body creams for summer


There’s been a fair share of controversy around firming products and what their capabilities really are… So before we start, let’s just get one thing clear: there is no cosmetic product on the market that can make cellulite and flabbiness magically disappear.

What there is, however, is a variety of products that can assist in minimising the appearance of cellulite and help firm the skin, if, and only if, they are used religiously in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regime.

The majority of them contain active ingredients that smoothes the skin and helps firm it, so it appears tighter and healthier. You won’t see a difference straight away, but with daily use, most women report a noticeable difference after a couple of weeks. If you toss the ciggies, exercise 30 minutes per day and have your 6 – 8 servings of veggies, you’ll make your firming body cream’s life a lot easier!

Here, five firming body products we recommend:


!QMSMedicosmetics Revitalizing Lift-O-Firm Body



Babor Firming Body Peeling Cream



Mio Shrink To Fit Cellulite Smoother



Nivea Q10 Firming Body Moisturiser



Comfort Zone D-Age Body Cream

  1. I’d also include a 5 minute foam roll everyday for the thigh and bum area to help with the appearance of the skin.

  2. I have never tried a firming product before and always wondered about them. But after reading this, I may jus try it out

  3. I’m glad you made the statement that nothing will take away cellulite. I think as women we look for creams and potions to take away all the parts of our bodies that we are unhappy with, but that is unrealistic.
