I learned years ago, that cellulite can affect any size woman. Prior to that I had this preconceived notion that it only happened to larger women, but that's not the case! Well, I looked in the mirror and I have a little bit of cellulite on my upper front thighs. I guess that's why I don't wear short shorts! HaHa Other than that, I'm ok.
I was contacted by a representative for GUAM Beauty Mud, who asked if I would be interested in trying out some of their products and if I would do a product review. Of course I said YESSSS!
So Here's My SWEET or NOT Product Review!
SWEET - BITTERSWEET - NOT SWEET
I received ONE sample packet of the following products:
GUAM fangocrema notte and GUAM Beauty Seaweed Mud (fanghi d'alga).
A Little Background About Guam
GUAM's line of anti-cellulite products from Italy have been around for over 25 years, and are the #1 go-to brand for help with cellulite issues in Europe.
The product line is seaweed and plant-based, utilizing ingredients found in nature to tighten, detoxify and re-mineralize the skin.
It is proven effective in a scientific study conducted by the University of Pavia in Italy resulting in noticeably tighter and smoother skin after the first treatment.
GUAM Fangocrema Notte - SWEET
What does it do? With the aid of nutrient-dense powdered sea salt, it helps with elimination of excess water in the body for a slimmer figure (reducing the overall size of the areas treated), while significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Directions: Gives you a warm glow and a pleasant active tingling sensation. It's bedtime application, when the body is resting and skin is at its most receptive, reduces imperfections caused by swelling and water retention and reshapes your body. Apply a generous amount to the affected parts, every night before bed, for 2 weeks. Massage with wide circular movement until fully absorbed.
My review: It's a light mint cream (see my pic -->), that smells good and applies similar to a really rich lotion. It takes a little while to completely rub into the skin. Once it's completely rubbed in, THAT is when you will feel a tingly sensation (but trust me, it's nothing alarming at all). The cream then dries and flakes off. When I showered the next morning, my legs felt very soft and smooth. I thought I saw a little improvement from the night before.
GUAM Beauty Seaweed Mud (fanghi d'alga) - SWEET
Directions: GUAM Seaweed Mud is an effective aid in defeating cellulite. Due to its natural properties, it provides immediate visible results just after the first few applications. Apply a proper quantity of product onto the affected areas with light circular massage. Wrap the areas with cling-film and leave it for 45 minutes. Rinse with water.
My review: I applied this the day after the night cream. This is definitely a rich and creamy mud (see my pic -->)! It's very smooth and has a distinctive scent. Again, nothing alarming, but it's how you would expect seaweed and mud to smell. It felt great to my skin. I applied clear cling-film (saran wrap - see model above) and left it on for 45 minutes as the directions stated. Took a shower and it washed off effortlessly. My skin had a nice glow. Again, I thought I saw a little improvement.
My Final Word: I did see some improvement after just ONE application of these products (take a look at my BEFORE and AFTER pic below). You can see that one lumpy cellulite dimple in the before and how it diminished a little in the after. So that was pretty impressive to me. My skin definitely felt smoother and from the two pics below looked a little tighter. I received only ONE sample of each, and the program actually asks you to do this for TWO WEEKS. So judging by my one-time results, I'm sure you'll see better results by using more of it. This process can get messy, so I suggest you purchase clear protective pants and protect your bedding when sleeping with the night cream (GUAM fangocrema notte). You will also need to purchase clear saran wrap to wrap around your thighs. All GUAM products vary in price. Have you heard of GUAM Beauty Mud or any of their other products (ex: tummy and waist fat burning mud treatment, stretch mark cream etc)? Tell me your thoughts! This is my first time trying their products.
