It’s good that this product doesn’t have the same alcohol-based formula that St. Ives’ Cellulite Shield Gel Creme has, but it still contains menthol and a menthol-derived ingredient that irritate skin, and they’re included only to make you think that this lotion is doing something for cellulite. This is yet another sham cellulite product that absolutely will not change a dimple or bump on your thighs. They must be joking by labeling this a “total body cellulite solution”!
Clinically proven to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite in 2 Weeks. Visibly diminish stubborn bumps and dimples to confidently enjoy a more contoured-looking body with this award-winning St. Ives Cellulite Shield Lotion. This dual toning and moisturizing formula features a MicroSmooth Complex of green tea, caffeine, citrus extracts and menthol. Apply daily for moisturized skin that will look and feel more tight, toned and healthy. Finally, a total body cellulite solution!

Two things set this line apart in the minds of consumers familiar with the brand: the Swiss angle and their apricot face scrubs. This notoriety didn't translate to thoughtfully formulated products, though. Instead, most of the scrubs are too abrasive, and the apricot is simply there as an extract, never mind that in a scrub it doesn't have any significant benefit for skin. The same can be said of the selection of supposedly Swiss-based herbs. Most of them have soothing properties, but it doesn't matter to skin if the ingredients came from Switzerland or South Dakota. If anything, the whole Swiss angle is getting a bit tired. You can bet that there are no scientists working high in the Swiss alps to formulate these products. St. Ives is a line with very little worth considering, so feel free to breeze right by as you shop for skin-care products at your local drugstore.
