must have: the fat buster
We find a revolutionary body cream that delivers a unique alternative to your morning caffeine kick.
If you’re someone guilty of hitting the snooze button more often than you make it to your morning gym session, or have all-to-frequent bouts of guilt over that extra slice of cake, then we suspect this product will be one for you. It has been noted that afternoon and evening ‘sugar hits’ are one of the primary causes of cellulite formation.
Bad news for us, and we suspect many others, who often succumb to afternoon sugar cravings. Food that is consumed later in the day is up to five times more likely to be stored as fat than if that same food was eaten in the morning. This was a rather grim finding for us until we discovered a secret weapon that promised to target cellulite and restore elasticity to skin.
In an effort to fast track our way to cellulite free toned pins and taut arms (or cheat, depending on which way you look at it) we have quickly become devout converts of Sothys new ‘Essential 24’ Body Cream, undoubtedly our pick from their slimming and firming product line.
Like any pot of magic that promises to smooth away wrinkles and lines, this is a big call for a single tube to proclaim. After a member of the Denizen team put us onto this citing its impressive, and instant results, we too can now lay claim to its triumphs.
This fat-busting cream smoothes away lumps and bumps with an arsenal of super charged ingredients including the highest available concentration of caffeine. At 8% concentration, it results in a quick and targeted delivery immediately after being massaged into the skin. Alongside this, the cream contains a cocktail of polyphenols, derived from Anise, Hemlock, Prunella and Celosia, which work around the clock to break down fatty deposits sans gym session. As you sleep, it increases adiponectin, which is responsible for the breakdown of fat, after you eat, it reduces the formation of fat and during exercise (yes, you should still do this), it stimulates adrenaline-like molecules that help to increase fat breakdown. Start from your feet and work your way right up the body to optimise its firming effects. Limbs are left feeling smooth, non greasy and most certainly more toned with each use.
Of course, the correct diet and exercise regime all still play a pivotal role in slaying cellulite but this cream has certainly made us think, perhaps we can have our cake, our sleep in, and eat it too? We suggest you add a little rev to your morning with this… think of it as another way to get your caffeine hit.
