There are so many interesting products out on the market today to help look your best. Many promise great results. But sometimes what may work for one person, may not work for another. I was given the chance to review a product like that, that I had not even heard of before. So it was bringing out my curiosity.
I was sent Eveline Cosmetic's Slim Extreme 3D Thermo Active Shaping Serum to try out and review. I must say, I was a bit unsure on how a product similar to a lotion, would actually help reduce cellulite and firm the body. But you know, anything is possible so I gave it a try.

So I decided to give it a go.
The instructions say to use this twice a day for at least four weeks for best results. I have not used it that much yet, so I am just going to go on what I have witnessed.
I opened the bottle and immediately noticed the scent of it. It had a very strong grapefruit type smell. Not unpleasant but it is very strong. My eight year old noticed it from across the room. She didn't like the smell too much but to me, it's not the worst thing you could smell like.
I squeezed out a quarter sized amount into my hand. It is a gel texture, look and feel that is of a reddish color. I started to rub it first on my butt. Yes, all over my butt because less face it, it hasn't been toned in years and it's a priority to get this butt back to it's awesome-ness again.
I then applied it to my thighs and again to my stomach area. I rubbed it in until the gel had soaked into my skin, which was surprisingly fairly quick. I began to do my regular household chores and it was not sticking at all to my clothes. Big plus right there.
I did though remember reading on the bottle that you would start to feel a tingling sensation that could last up to 40 minutes. That had began. My butt started to tingle. It felt as if I had been sitting on a heating pad and it warmed all up nice and toasty. However, it was not a burning feeling or anything I would say that felt uncomfortable. It just merely felt like my butt was tingling.
This was the only place I had felt the tingling. The other two spots I placed the gel on felt as if I just rubbed regular lotion on them. I do not have sensitive skin so maybe someone with sensitive skin would feel a bit more sensation. I am not sure. But I am fine with not feeling it on the other parts.
So far I have not noticed a difference but that doesn't mean there can't be anything that will happen. Even though I haven't noticed anything, my husband told me that my skin loos a little firmer and tighter. And he just wouldn't say that just to say that. So maybe there is hope that it is working. I simply need to keep continued use of the product and I plan on using up the entire bottle to see what my results are. I will most likely update this post once I have made my final conclusions on this.
If you are interested in trying this serum out for yourself, you can purchase it for $14.99 right now on Amazon.
