September 12, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 3 Comments
I just read that, in September 2007, a bloke called Ricky gave his wife six bottles of Revitol Cellulite Cream. One wonders if they are still married since that comes across to me as the ultimate in a passive aggressive plea for a divorce.

A reader (I don't think she's married to a Ricky) asked me specifically to look at Revitol ($39.95 for one bottle) and I agreed (after giving my standard response that nothing works for cellulite like squats). My overall take is that has some good ingredients that are commonly associated with attacking cellulite. But there is nothing that is a real standout. On the other hand, you can't quibble with the price and there is nothing in it to dislike.

The actives are caffeine, alga (bladderwrack), retinol A, green tea, capsicum, shea butter and horsetail extract. Of these the alga is the most interesting. Bladderwrack is actually a seaweed that you'll find lying around on any old beach. I'm not sure if it will do anything for cellulite, but for many years it has been added to slimming aids as it is believed to stimulate the metabolic rate.

The link with cellulite might have something to do with the fact that bladderwrack contains iodine. As a result, it has been used to treat thyroid disorders. A malfunctioning thyroid could be responsible for obesity and fatty deposits. The US National Library of Medicine has this to say about it. "While the evidence does suggest thyroid activity, there is not enough research to support this use of bladderwrack. Laboratory study suggests antioxidant activity in fucoidans, which are components in some brown algae. However, there is a lack of high quality human studies available to support use as an antioxidant."

    <p>Thank You Marta! I have unfortunately needed to test a variety of cellulite potions and to me, Revitol really does make a difference. I faithfully applied it twice daily and by the time the first bottle was gone, I was firmer, toned and my clothes felt looser. I still test others, but I challenge any other product to go hands on with this one and make as much of an improvement! </p>
