Hi ladies, today I’m going to share about a product called Slim Design from Elancyl Laboratoire that reduces the appearance of cellulite. I was quite excited to give this product a try as it would be my first time using an anti-cellulite product! I do have cellulite (also known as orange peel) on my thighs, though it doesn’t bother me very much when I’m standing up. But when I am seated, ho ho, there it appears. Skinny people have cellulite too – in fact, 9 in 10 women have cellulite! It’s actually a very normal thing (fat cells beneath skin) but can be exacerbated by factors like a poor diet, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, and poor circulation etc.
The cellulite structure
I always thought that the accumulation of fat cells are to be blamed for the appearance of cellulite, but it’s not as simple as that, which is why cellulite can be very stubborn. There are many factors and peripheral connective tissues have a part to play too in forming the dreaded cellulite structure by becoming rigid during the process, leading to dimpled skin.
Elancyl Laboratoire Slim Design is the first anti-cellulite product to target connective tissue rigidification through a 3-step process.
Using active ingredient, Caffeine, fat cells are degraded into free fatty acids. The smaller and less complex structures are easier to be removed by the body naturally.
Water and toxin retention is one of the results of fat cells compressing on the venus-lymphatic circulatory network.
Elancyl’s main-staying active ingredient, Ivy, strengthens the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Coupled with the roll-pinch massage on the thighs, it aids in toxin elimination.
Salacia root extract, used in Ayurvedic medicine to reduce the thickening of connective tissue, initiates a re-structuring of the skin architecture to reveal an intensely smoothed appearance.
Here’s how to massage to achieve the desired results!
Instructions for use are: Once in the morning every day and the effects can last for the next 24 hours.
After showering and drying skin, squeezed a dose onto your palm.
1, 2) After applying to thigh, move your palm and fingers up both sides of the thigh to spread the lotion, applying slight pressure. Always massage towards the direction of your heart.
3, 4, 5) Pinch and roll vertically and/or transversally along affected areas: inner knee, upper thigh, bottom, and abdomen. (Once I pinched my flesh, I had a shock as that revealed all my cellulite!)
My first impressions on Elancyl’s Slim Design
Smell: A little saccharine. Smells luxurious like spa!
Texture: The product is runny, lightweight, and easy to spread over skin. It is very quickly absorbed and does not leave any stickiness. I also realised it has tiny gold glistening particles.
How it feels on the skin: I was expecting a warm tingling sensation (you know how other fat-burning products advertise to be like?), but on the contrary, the lotion cools down the skin, and feels cool to the touch even after a couple of minutes after application. There was no down-time having to wait for the lotion to become less sticky, which makes it convenient for mornings.
Results: My skin feels softer and more supple after application. In fact, 8 in 10 women reported having firmer, more toned, and more supple skin after 10 days’ use. I really like how it works as a toner and the skin subsequently becomes less saggy! I’m going to continue using it for optimal results.
To be confident in your own skin. Now, isn’t that something we all want? :) Skin is the largest organ on our bodies and it is what people see first. I can totally understand how having troubled skin can affect our overall self-esteem. So, take good care of your skin by being well-hydrated, having a healthy diet, and exercise regularly. Using the right products helps as well. Always nip problems in the bud before they become worse!
