SANA Esteny Body Hot Massage Gel
Wednesday February 22, 2012
Well if you follow my twitter then you know today was a pain in the ass. So I figured I’d do an appropriately themed review for such a day!
Firming gel! More specifically rump firming using SANA’s Esteny Body Hot Massage Gel.
Esteny Body Hot Massage Gel
This is a gel I ordered off of Yesstyle. I’ve been using it for a month.
First thing I noticed. The amazing scent!!! A mixture of apple and ginger with more sweet apple notes!!! It’s a semi-clear gel that massages on easily. Dries okay. A little sticky at first then dries clean. Probably best for use at night though I used it twice a day I used less in the mornings so it would dry quickly. I used it mostly on my upper thighs, tummy, and a little on my upper arms.
The heating effect begins about a minute after and then BAM!!! It warms up SOOO much!! Especially on my thighs. It felt the hottest there lol. I think if you like sweat baths you’ll like this gel! If you hate sweat baths you’ll probably hate this too.
Most effective after a long hot bath when the pores are open.
After using over half the tube, I’m left thinking it’s a nice product. I mostly love it for the scent and heat up effect. Firming effect-wise though, it’s on par with Nivea’s Q10 Skin Firming Moisturizer. It does soften and smooth the skin, but firming is minimal. I wish it had been more effective because I really think I might buy it again just for the other more positive aspects. … yea I kinda want more of it
I want to quickly cover past firming items I’ve used too.
My all time favorite was Nivea’s My Silhouette gel. It firmed and smoothed amazingly. Plus the scent was light and lovely. It was pulled because people thought they’d lose actual weight using it. No. But it did firm up the skin crazy well. Anyway it’s discontinued.
I used Nivea’s Good-Bye Cellulite Serum as well. It works about as well as their My Silhouette but the scent and greasy film it left turned me off.
I’ve also tried Bliss Fat Girl Slim. Hated it. It actually made my thighs look worse. Confirmed by the husband to be honest. When I stopped using it and switched to Nivea’s Q10 lotion it got better. Again, husband confirmed. I think it was plumping up my skin for a smooth effect but it only made it more dimpled looking
I completed a bottle of Nivea’s Q10 Skin Firming Moisturizer before starting SANA brand. I like the Q10 lotion. It worked decent enough plus left my skin soft and smooth. Not great but could tell a difference when using it.
Lastly I’ve used some of Ishizawa Lab’s germanium massage salts before as well. Not a huge fan of the massage salts. Didn’t see much firming results. But it did make my skin super soft and smooth :).
