Shiseido Advanced Body Creator

Hello everyone!

As it is that I have to lose over 100 pounds, one thing is set in my mind- the worry of saggy, wrinkly body skin.

I have my own product preference for preventing it. I have used it in the past and really liked how it made my skin feel.  

This is the old bottle I used to have, it was hard plastic and difficult to squeeze product out.  Here's the newer packaging:

This package is more squeeze-friendly. They also changed the name to "Advanced" Body Creator.

Well, what's the deal with this stuff?

This is a gel meant for firming the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.  It does have caffeine, which I have read does wonders for cellulite on a visual aspect.

It also feels tingly when you rub it on the skin.  I like the feeling but some people may find it something to get used to.  It also has a nice spicy grapefruity smell (I like it, some may not).  There is a reason it smells like grapefruit and not, say, flowers.

Research shows smelling grapefruit serves as an appetite suppressant and reduced food intake helps weight loss as well. 

When I bought it before, I was told that the best time to put this stuff on was after my workout and after a shower when the pores are nice and open. 

Keep in mind that this is NOT supposed to make you actually slimmer. Applying this and not dieting/exercising will not make your thighs smaller.  They'll be smoother, but not smaller.  I am using it to moisturize and tighten up my skin (which it did a great job of last time I used it). 

The one downside is that it's a little expensive. For a 6.7 oz bottle, it costs $57.50 at most high end department stores or online.

Have you guys ever used this stuff, or a similar cream/lotion for skin firmness?
