Contouring for your body? Aussie beaty brand Skin Physics may have a product for you with their revolutionary new range – Superbody. I road tested the new Slim Contour Cream, claimed as ‘the first topical alternative to Coolsculpt cryotherapy’. Here is my Superbody Contour Cream review.
Why I had to try it
It literally aims to ‘visibly reduce cellulite, shape body contour and lift & tighten sagging skin’. Sounds promising right? Of course, it’s not going to be like liposuction or 3 weeks in the gym – but I can’t do any of those things right now anyway. I have nothing to lose so decided to give it a go. I’m hoping Skin Physics delivers on their new Superbody range. After using the Slim Contour Cream for three weeks, this is what I thought.
What’s new from Skin Physics
Skin physics is now Australias leading cosmeceutical brand, and for good reason. Their number one selling Superlift Range in Priceline is a huge hit. I absolutely love their hydrating face masks. Oh, and let’s not forget their Dragon’s Blood range, which you can read more about on a recent blog post here.
Skin physics have released a product range called Superbody, aiming to erase saggy skin and signs of ageing on your body (hooray!). I find that my upper thighs are usually the worst offender when it comes to toning. Sometimes sag turns into saddle bags all too quickly, even the tiniest of women still get cellulite (how?!). No matter how fit you are, no one is immune. So this cream is for anyone who wants to give those stubborn subcutaneous body fat and cellulite a run for its money – without actually running or wasting money.
The revolutionary new Superbody contour cream and Crepe Away does not make any magical claims. Rather, it has stuck to science, the cream is designed to:
- Visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Effectively shape body contour
- Lift and tighten the appearance of sagging skin; restoring youthful elasticity.
How with Superboy Slim Contour achieve that?
Dr Curtis Castro, has selected these powerful anti-ageing ingredients including:
A liposoluble anti-cellulite slimming active, derived from two of natures thermogenic sources. Together they induce a rapid warming effect on problem areas to burn fat and for a smoother appearance of cellulite.
Also known as marine plankton extract (seen in many great beauty products), is the first topical alternative to Coolsculpt cryotherapy.
Green Coffee Seed Oil which is commonly used to stimulate the skin. It boosts collagen and elastin production, tackling stretch marks. It is also infused with argan oil and Tamanu Seed Oil, known for its ability to stimulate collagen production.
Applying Slim Contour Cream
The Skin Physics Slim Contour Cream is lightweight and absorbs nicely. You only need a small amount like a fifty cent piece for one area and I like that the smell is neutral. Just be careful not to squirt out the entire bottle in one go!
The package I was sent from Skin Physics included a dry body brush to help prep the
skin. These are highly recommended to use before a shower, then applying the cream. It helps stimulate cells, exfoliates skin and boosts circulation.
Given I do not moisturise as much, I was surprised by the hydrating effects on skin. The Slim Contour cream has, at the very least, made me pay more attention to the thigh area. Maybe it is that I am feeling more comfortable in my skin (no mean feat after having twins), or maybe there is something in this product. Either way, I like what it is doing to my body confidance.
I know a cream is not going to make me achieve my ideal body. It is not a slimming cream, but if you are in the market for body contour creams, this is a good one to try.
How to enhance the effect
Aside from the obvious excercise and eating well, using a body brush can work wonders. Brushing your dry skin in the direction towards your heart is said to stimulate blood flow and target the fat on a deeper level. I wish they would bring out a Superbody scrub. Something like the popular coffee scrubs but with the same active ingredients on a cosmeceutical level.
If all else fails, a bronzing the skin really has a magical slimming effect!
