Would You Buy Anti-Cellulite Gear?


The other night I was up late channel surfing and I landed on the Home Shopping Network, which was doing a special segment on Skineez™ Skincarewear™ Slimming Boot-Cut Jean. The pants are touted as a "slimming garment", and are treated with a formula that's said to diminish cellulite. I'm not talking Spanx or a body shaper — they claim to actually treat, not just hide your unsightly bumps and lumps. You are supposed to treat them with a replenishing spray ($35) that "helps the garment moisturize, tone and firm and its key ingredients include shea butter, apricot kernel oil, rose hip oil and Vitamin E" after six to 10 washings. Callers seemed to love the set up, which made me wonder — could it possibly work? I guess the idea is you trap the formula in your tight pants and treat your skin with it while you wear it. Have you ever tried anything like this? Did it work?

working out doesn't always get rid of all the lumps. not that i would buy this, i'm just saying.

Waste of money. All it would do is to plump up things temporarily and if you stopped wearing them, you'd get the cellulite back again. I've got better things to spend money on.

Sounds like a great way to rip people off.

The idea of spraying something on your jeans just sounds gross to me. I would rather minimize cellulite by working out, which is my current strategy. Also, even if anti-cellulite creams do work (which I doubt most of them do), the concept sounds so unnatural to me.

There's no way it would work, and having that trapped inside your jeans with you sounds really uncomfortable.

You can't get rid of it... it's as simple as that. I have it and I accept it. My 90lbs sister has it, it just happens.... unfortunately.
