Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.

5 out of 7 people would recommend this product16/01/2018, By JIt's a really lovely lotion but, like all anti cellulite lotions won't work wonders. Cellulite is very difficult to get rid of and there is no wonder cure for it. I'm not sure why companies ever advertise that it will. Perhaps if it's part of a good diet, rigorous excersize regimen and you massage the area a lot.. then maybe it could be the tiny bit of extra help you could do with.
That said, if it was not advertised as anti cellulite I would rate it a 5. I like it, I use it on my whole body, sinks in well and doesn't leave a greasy feeling like some natural products do. (I've even used this on my face before when I was desperate and it actually worked quite well-combination skin)24/10/2017, By ElThis does not work at all. Bought a full size bottle, used daily till finished. No improvement. (No surprise when I look at the ingredients).
The texture is awful, does not absorb properly into skin.
Smells nice though.29/06/2017, By BrendaReally like this cream although I am yet to notice any difference to the appearance of my cellulite. It does however burn my skin sometimes and am not too sure why.16/06/2017, By KSGreat feel-good lotion.09/06/2017, By LarisaNot sure if it really works, can't see a difference in cellulite, but I know it's not really possible to remove cellulite. But it smells great, leaves my skin feeling toned and moisturised. Will buy again!18/03/2017, By EugeneThis is a very soft cream, it absorbs into the skin very quickly. Has a definite smell of cucumber which is a clean smell on the skin.
The aloe and cucumber helps to moisturize the skin and keeps it that way. I use this product every 2nd day. I would say it can also be used as a nightcream on the face or anywhere really.
Amazing product, will buy it again09/06/2016, By JeaneWorks great and smells fresh. It has a nice texture and absorbs quickly into the skin. Will keep on using it
