      I have learned that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. This certainly is generally true for beauty products that promise things like making wrinkles disappear, or diet supplements that burn away fat. When I first saw advertising for a product called Nivea Good-bye Cellulite, I knew this was just another one of these ridiculous marketing ploys, because of course, nothing takes away cellulite, not even surgery; I have met skinny, in shape girls who, by some cruel genetic twist of fate, still have cellulite. For years, doctors have said that exercise and a good diet will help reduce it,

      but nothing can make it go away.

      So the next time I went to the US to do some shopping, I took a look at this item in the store. The price was $24, and the main active ingredient, according to the packaging, is L-Carnitine, something your body produces naturally, (although I am assuming, your body doesn’t produce enough of it, or we wouldn’t need these products). It also, like all the other cosmetic claims, says it ‘reduces the appearance’ of cellulite in four weeks. Most companies add this ‘reduces the appearance’ phrase as their out when the product doesn’t take away the offending wrinkle, fat ...


      • or other imperfection. Anyway, I decided to buy it, mainly because I take pleasure in proving to myself that these companies lie to consumers.

        The gel-cream is a smooth substance that feels nice on the skin. It seems to moisturize well. Of course, my small bit of cellulite on the back of my legs did not disappear after four, or even six, weeks. It did not ‘appear’ to be reduced either. The only difference I can honestly say that I saw, felt or noticed at all was that the skin feels somewhat firmer, but then again, cellulite is not about loose skin, it is about fat

        pockets under the skin. Of course, no product that you apply topically to your skin is going to have any effect on something that is under the skin-we all know that. I think that Nivea can make the claim of ‘reducing the appearance’ of cellulite because the skin does appear a bit tighter. As with all the miracle cures, the company will get some people to fall for the unrealistic claims, and perhaps see some difference that will make them believers.

        My advice for reducing the appearance of cellulite-eat healthy, exercise lots, especially weight-bearing exercise like running or walking, and use a self-tanner on your legs.
