Every girl needs a little pick up luxurious product to feel like a queen, especially if this specific product makes her skin look and feel fabulous. I couldn't turn down the opportunity to review the Aromatherapy Associates Body Gel* because I have had a crazy month and wanted to find that special something to make the after-shower routine more fun after a long day.
Can I just say that my mum and I ended up fighting over this gel? As in a legit argument because we both love this so much and were getting a little too possessive over it when we generally share our beauty products. Pretty mental if you ask me. I face-palm myself every single time I think about it, but really that alone should sum up already what I think about this little guy.
The claims : What caught my eye straight away was the fact that this gel has the power - or so it's claimed - to improve the appearance of cellulite. Summer is almost over but I'm sure we still want to look good even though we don't have to wear shorts and bikinis much anymore.
The use : My main area of concern is my thighs that are not big at all but do have cellulite since I do sit a lot and I can definitely be a couch potato. This goes away whenever I have intense massages and use a roller to make the circulation in that area a little better. I did notice after a 2 weeks of non-stop usage that it did improve the looks of my backside/thigh area a lot! You're supposed to massage it wherever you need some "boom" if you know what I mean - like hips, thighs, stomach, ankles and feet. I think what helped is that I have been also doing squats so don't get the wrong idea that this will just work on its own like a magic potion.
Product : It's a non sticky, fresh gel with the most amazing smell. It contains Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary, Juniperberry, Pine & Damask Rose Water. It can be used twice daily and my mum loved it on her feet - especially on long journeys and plane rides! I enjoyed using it at night before bed. It relaxed me plus slowly erased any sign of cellulite so my body would look more toned in the morning.
Final Thoughts : I really enjoyed this. It pains me to say it because it's quite pricey (around the £30 mark!!) which is not something I would usually gravitate towards considering I'm a poor university student with an addiction to makeup palettes, but I'm very grateful I got the chance to enjoy my Rich Kid of Beverly Hills moment. Jokes, that was a little dramatic. At the end of the day, it doesn't break the bank so if you were on the market for something that will "oooh" you and "aaaah" you then this might be it!
