NO LONGER AVAILABLE; DECEMBER 2012
Cellulite is a common affliction, specifically with women. Cellulite occurs when the top layer of skin tissue that surrounds fat cells becomes dimpled. The fat cells begin to either bulge or sag, causing the unattractive lumpy, dimpled appearance.
Body Shape by Hydroderm is a topical cream that is purportedly a new weapon for decreasing the appearance of cellulite. It's also marketed as a beauty product, improving tone and moisturizing dry spots. What most consumers will be purchasing Body Shape for is its cellulite cure claims.
Body Shape contains liposomes, microscopic bubbles that can carry ingredients through the skin. Absorption occurs more rapidly and effectively than conventional delivery systems, supposedly because they resemble the skin tissue itself. You are instructed to massage Body Shape into your skin twice a day, which simultaneously moisturizes your skin and shrinks cellulite.
Body Shape boasts all-natural herbs, botanicals and nutrients, while other cellulite creams often use artificial ingredients.
- There are testimonials posted on the Body Shape website
- Body Shape comes with a free trial, that is not attached to an auto-ship program
- All-natural ingredients
- Promotes exercise
- Body Shape doesn't address real concerns, like reducing appetite or raising metabolism for shrinking fat cells
- While there are documented success stories, there isn't any convincing photo evidence

The Body Shape website is a little vague about the ingredients. It says that the liposomes release "natural compounds like green tea extract, Kukui nut oil, and other nutrients.EXERCISE
The Body Shape website says to help tone and firm your skin, it is recommended that you exercise at least 30 minutes a day for at least 3 to 5 days a week.CONCLUSION
Having the option of a free trial for the Body Shape cream is nice, but the idea of a topical cream making your cellulite vanish seems like wishful thinking. People suggest everything from rubbing your skin with epsom salt to warm coffee grounds. You can look for all kinds of miracle cures, but you need to be willing to put in the hard work of sensible eating and regular exercise first. If you still struggle, maybe then take a chance on Body Shape.Common Misspellings
