Review of firming lotions!

Hello ma'lovelys :) In my post today I will be doing a review about firming lotions, a few that I have tested out myself. 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula – Firming Butter 

This products includes: Shea Butter, Collagen, Elastin & Vitamin E. 
I first started using this product when I had a dramatic weight loss from 13 to 9 1/2 stone. As most of my fat had melted away I was left with saggy skin. I had heard about this product from many beauty reviews and thought I would give it a try to tighten up my skin. This is a cream like product which you should rub in firmly to the problem area every night. After using this product on my thighs, bum and stomach for a month I definitely felt a difference in my skin. My skin was much firmer and felt incredibly smooth. I recommend trying out this product if you like a thick cream, which will tighten the skin, over a long period of time. 

Daly Spa – Tums and Bums Silhouette Smoother by Tess Daly. 

I received this product as a gift, and started using it straight away as I love to try out new products and see if they work. I was a bit sceptical at first because it was a celebrity based product, however after using this cream for a month I could see a slight difference. It advises to smooth the cream over your skin using sweeping strokes, and do not rub in too vigorously. My skin was definitely smoother and as it is infused with almond oils it gives a real shimmer to your skin. I would say you could use this product as a normal moisturiser with a shiny glow and also as a toning cream. 

Nip + Fab Tummy Fix – Daily ‘Ab’ Gel. 

I started using this product to test out how good the formula would work. This product claims to improve skin tone and texture around the abdominal area. 

The product says it uses: 
- Amarashape to sculpt and promote elasticity 
- Bitter orange to smooth and make skin appear firmer 
- Lecithin to soften and hydrate. 

This is a serum based product which you should apply on clean skin in circular movements twice a day for visible results. I loved the fact that this was a serum as it was easier to rub into my skin and sunk in a lot better than the creams. After only a few applications of this product, I could see noticeable results in my skin, it felt firmer and a lot smoother. I would definitely recommend using this product and will be purchasing some more of it soon. 

This next product is not a firming lotion, it is a brilliant hand cream that I love and just had to share with you! 

Soap & Glory – Hand Food – Hydrating hand cream. 

This is one of my favourite products at the moment, I apply this cream to my hands as often as I need, just to keep my hands hydrated, especially in this cold weather. Another reason why I love this product is because it smells gorgeous (I could eat it, hehe). 

Hope you enjoyed my review on these products and If you have any questions feel free to ask away in the comment section below :)
