Okay, this product has a very long name, so I just copied it from Sweetsation Therapy's site because it is a mouthful and it will be spelled right! This is one of their new product's that they have come out with and it's called Svelte PRO Supercharged Organic Anti-Cellulite Treatment with L'Carnitine & CoQ10. Was I not right? That is one long name and for my hand's sake I am gonna shorten it to Svelte Pro just so you know what I am talking about later on.
Okay, you want to know how Cellulite forms? Well, here is the scientific answer to that question:
Cellulite results from an excess storage of fat in the deeper skin layers beneath the connective tissue. As a result the skin gets uneven, loses elasticity and dimples occur. Inactive lifestyle, poor diet and lack of exercise intensifies the stagnancy of fat cells and makes the problem worse.
It is well-known that anti-cellulite massages combined with (yes, exercise) and topical treatments of the affected body areas - especially on thighs, buttocks, stomach - help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Doesn't both of those look gross? But, we have to own it, I guess. That is what Cellulite is in the first picture on the left. After using Svelte Pro for about 4 weeks, you should see a nice difference. I haven't had mine long enough to give you an A-+ report, but I can tell that my thighs don't see to be so dimply anymore. They are not as smooth as the second picture yet, so I am hoping once the bottle is gone, I will have some smooth thighs.
I could use it in other area's too like the back of my butt, but, I figure, who the heck see's that but me? I would rather work on parts that people do see and that is the top of the legs/thighs. I think you would agree with me, don't you? So, let's cross our fingers and hope that Sweetsation Therapy's new treatment for Cellulite is a big hit!
This is what Sweetsation Therapy says in plain English so we can understand how Svelte Pro works:
They have these flub busters that stop production of the enzyme that leads to fat storage in our body and so cause the dimples to shrink. Many ingredients have this effect including, Caffeine, Kola nut and Juniper.
Along side these are ingredients like, Butcher's broom which helps dilate blood vessels increasing circulation in the area- Gingko Biloba which is said to firm the skin and Lemon and Fennel which helps detox the body and repair skin. L'Carnitine, the latest break through in cellulite battle - is found naturally in the skin and supports the conversion of fat into energy.Now, a word of caution. Please do not leave this out for children to get ahold of. Also if you are pregnant, don't use as it acts as a diuretic and it would be best to ask a doctor first before using this product. I say that because everyone's bodies act differently and if you have alot going on, it might be best to ask ahead of time.
Apply in a circular motion twice a day, on all affected areas, specially on your thighs, buttocks, or stomach to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. (They prefer that you do this 2 hours after eating or one hour before eating. Your body will only burn fat when it has none in the bloodstream.) This product does create a slight "sauna" effect that may cause you to sweat more on the area's where the product was applied.
Now, because of that last statement and because my health has been up and down alot lately, that is another reason why I decided to stick to the thighs. I did now want to put too much on and have some weird experience, especially in my stomach area. Remember, I have just been diagnosed with Acute Gastritis and can't eat or drink anything with caffeine, which this does have but probably acts differently, but still, just to be on the safe side, I am just doing the thighs until I have a doctor's appt and can ask him what he thinks.
They also have a Smoothing Body Scrub to help with Cellulite also, so if you prefer something like this scrub, you have that option to choose this one, too. It is called Phyto Lite Anti Cellulite Smoothing Body Scrub with Caffeine and Paprika. Don't know what's up with all the really long names but I guess they have to get as much as the ingredients in the name as possible. They both go on differently, so you will have to decide which one you would rather try.
There was no specific reason why I chose the other. It just seemed less messy as this is a body scrub and you will have to wash it off in the shower but I don't have to do that with the first one. Other than that, there really wasn't any other difference.
And I will be sure to update you guys when my bottle is empty and I have had more time to use this to get the desired effects.
Here is some info I found in the About Us section:
Sweetsation Therapy was born in 2008, with the collaboration of two of the USA based labs and a team of chemists, aromatherapists and dermatologists. Our products are Organic and natural treatments that look great, feel great and smell great, and therefore make you feel good. We've combined the best gifts of earth and ocean in our skin care. Aromatherapy elements nourish your body and soul.
And most importantly our products are safe for mom and baby, and everyone who seeks the healthiest alternatives for every day skin challenges. Did you know that everything that is applied on our skin, the largest organ, ultimately ends up in your bloodstream? Consequently, we pass it on to our developing baby. Each ingredient was thoroughly researched and checked against Cosmetic Safety Database and verified, that it's safe to use for pregnancy while delivering desirable results.
Since then we were just picking up the speed. After my baby was born I discovered that Baby products that are sold in large stores, including the most consumer trusted brands, are lacking good quality not to mention are packed with toxic ingredients, so now we offer a line of baby products that are designed to have kid-friendly (chemical-free) scents, like orange juice and chocolate...
And that's just the beginning. My ultimate goal is to create a little world of Sweetsation where moms and babies, kids big and small can get "Green and Clean" safe products for their bodies and souls.Connect with Sweetsation Therapy several ways:
