Good-Bye Cellulite Patches are gimmicky adhesive patches meant to fit over the thighs, buttocks, or stomach. The adhesive agents can be irritating to skin, there is no research anywhere proving cartinine has a cellulite-diminishing effect, and this patch system isn’t preferred over just rubbing the Good-Bye Cellulite, Smoothing Cellulite Gel-Cream into your skin. So don’t bother to even say hello to this product, unless you’re willing to say goodbye to your money and get nothing of value in return.
The appearance of cellulite on the skin surface results from an excess storage of fat in the deeper skin layers beneath the connective tissue. L-Carnitine is a substance which is naturally present in the skin. It is known to be involved in the fat metabolism – more specifically it supports the conversion of fat components into energy. A sufficient amount of L-Carnitine in the skin is therefore beneficial. The NIVEA Body Good-bye Cellulite Patches contain this skin-own substance. The concentrated, fast action of NIVEA body Good-bye Cellulite Patches is based on its continuous release of L-Carnitine into the skin. From the first application the amount of L-Carnitine in the skin is boosted. Thus the NIVEA body Good-bye Cellulite Patches lead to a fast penetration of L-Carnitine in the fatty tissue of the skin. After three applications the skin is noticeably toned and smoothened. After 4 weeks, the signs of cellulite on the skin are visibly reduced.

Strengths: Budget-friendly; good makeup removers; a gentle scrub; some worthwhile lip balms.
Weaknesses: Several boring formulas; no products to treat breakouts or lighten skin discolorations; problematic toners; disappointing self-tanners; the anti-cellulite products are a joke.
Nivea is a globally known brand owned by Beiersdorf, the same company behind department-store brand La Prairie and drugstore mainstay Eucerin. Among those three brands, Nivea's product selection is the weakest (which isn't saying much, because none of these lines have much of anything to offer skin). For Nivea, uninspired formulas abound, presenting limited options unless you have normal to dry skin, and even those have exceptionally inelegant formulas. The enduring popularity of this line has more to do with advertising and perhaps tradition (it has been around a long time) than with what any researcher would consider state-of-the-art.
In mid-2010 Nivea re-launched most of their Visage (facial care) products on the web site drugstore.com. These products present a few well formulated, inexpensive options that are worth your attention.For more information about Nivea, owned by Beiersdorf, call (800) 227-4703 or visit www.nivea.com.
