Last month, I asked if you thought we should review anti-cellulite creams here at the Cellulite Investigation and your resounding reply was “Yes!” I’ve barely begun the first promised cellulite-cream review but already I’m having some issues. Do you run into these same problems with cellulite products?
Checking out the website prior to agreeing to the review, the online ingredient list reads as follows:
There’s a few ingredients in there that require further research on my part, but I figured that would be a fun part of the review process. I didn’t see any major red flags until I received the product in the mail and was able to read the ingredient list on the label.
Besides the substances listed above, MesoTone cream also contains methyl paraben, propyl paraben, and several other ingredients not listed on the website.
I’m sure Della Naturaceuticals was only listing the active ingredients online because that’s what most people are interested in, but parabens are one of those chemicals I try to avoid in my beauty products (check out this post about parabens at Kitchen Stewardship to learn more), so I was disappointed to see them in the cream I was asked to review.
Here are the directions for applying MesoTone cream, as described on their website. Can you spot the dilemma cellulite-prone women like myself will inevitably face when using this cream to treat the blight?
The pump is uniquely designed to dispense a 60 mg dose. The pump contains approximately 60 – 68 pumps. One pump will cover a 6×6 inch area of the body for one month. It may be necessary to use more than one bottle of MesoTone Cream ™ depending on how many areas you want to treat. The cream should be applied twice daily for best results.
A surface area of 6×6 is not going to do the trick on these gams. I might have to pick just one dimple or two to treat for this product review. The manufacturers are straight up in stating you might need more than one bottle, but at $80 a piece, it seems unrealistic to use MesoTone cream to treat anything beyond a small patch of the blight.I can’t be the first woman to run into the surface area problem when it comes to anti-cellulite creams, right? Please tell me I’m not alone in this one!
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
