To be honest it was the price of this product which convinced me to give it a go. Having spent a small fortune in the past on a number or cellulite creams, body firming lotions and whatnot, I figured that I hadn't actually tried anything in the 'budget' category and so had nothing to lose except about £14, which is roughly the equivalent a meal out (or in certain parts of Brussels, a coffee and a slice of cake!).
But fly my pretties, fly down to Boots because at the moment you can get this for under a tenner! And get it you should, if you need something that really does work hard to firm up and minimise the appearance of cellulite and uneven skin texture.
I have applied this religiously every single day since the 3rd March and have been keeping a rough sort of diary with measurements. The thing is though, the measurements really don't matter. I have actually put on a little weight since I started using this, a combination of a dangerous baking habit and hormonal fluctuations. But.... my thighs and bum LOOK smaller even though by my measurements they are in fact 1cm bigger than the day I started using Sit Tight.
I would say that the tube contains roughly a month's supply. I am almost at the one month mark and it's nearly finished. You are supposed to massage a generous amount of the thick, somewhat sticky, cream-gel into the derriere and the thighs every morning, giving them a good ol' massage while you're at it. Although it feels quite sticky at first, it does get absorbed within about 2 minutes, depending on how much you plaster on. One one desperate day I think I used about 30 mls (waaaaaaay too much) and I was squelching in my jeans for most of the morning feeling rather icky. Funny walks ahoy.
The smell is kind of like menthol, and you're supposed to feel it heat up where you apply it, but on me it felt cool, EXCEPT when I had exfoliated beforehand, after which I felt like I had heat-pads strapped around my legs. If you have very sensitive skin you may find this irritating.
As for the key selling point, the SIT DOWN ACTIVATION. Well, I sat. A lot. Which probably explained the weight gain this month. In the first week I noticed that my skin was feeling incredibly smooth, but not much else. Oh well, I thought, it wasn't expensive, I'll just keep using it and at least I'll have incredibly soft skin by the time it's finished.
Lo and behold, about a week ago I popped into a shop to try on some dresses and I caught sight of myself in the changing rooms mirrors, the ones where you can see your behind without having to do an 'exorcism' neck twist. Hang on a minute..... those aren't my legs! Where are the bumps and ripples, shadows and dimples that are normally so much more visible in those harsh changing room lights? And my bum! That's not my bum now.......that's my bum 10 years ago! I was smoother, tighter, firmer and generally less bumpy. There were still a few dimples, but nothing, NOTHING like before. I didn't find a dress, but I had come out with new thighs. Result.
Three days ago I went shopping again and in 3 different shops, each with different lights and mirrors, the results were the same. There had been such an improvement that I suddenly felt that it didn't matter that I was a few lbs heavier. In fact I've been slimmer and my legs and bum have looked much worse.
I'm no way near perfect, dimple-free skin yet, but this product has been a revelation for me and I will most definitely be re-purchasing.
