Vichy Cellu Destock Review

The never ending battle with my thighs continues.  You may be wondering what kind of crazy person tries endless products to try and fix a problem that just isn't fixable - hey, I'm not delusional, I know that there isn't a cream that exists that is ever going to give me totally smooth thighs - for that I would have to eat right and exercise and that's just crazy talk!  I'm just aiming for an improvement!

Vichy Cellu Destock Advanced Anti-Cellulite Care - 200ml - $53 -  uses 5% pure caffeine and lipocidine to minimize the appearance of cellulite.  The box informed me that some parts of the body are genetically programmed to stock fats (waist, hips, thighs, butt) and are less reactive to the caloric restriction of diets.  The science:  pure caffeine triggers with efficiency the lipids combustion and lipocidine is able to stimulate the expression of a protein that commands the elimination of the lipids during a calorie restriction.
What does that mean in normal people speak?  You can diet all you like but that doesn't mean that your body is going to get rid of your orangey peel goodness unless something tells it to and this cream aims to do just that!

Right away I loved the texture of this cream - it's a soft silky cream-gel in a funky colour of green.  I don't know what it is about green creams but I always have this mental perception that they work better.  Maybe I equate it with rubbing vegetables into my skin and everyone is always telling me how good vegetables are for me - so green cream must be just as good for my skin - I know, I have issues!  The cream absorbed easily, dried quickly and didn't leave a sticky feeling afterwards that you sometimes get with gels.

In a perfect world, you should be using this cream along with a diet (yes, that does mean cutting out chocolate cake) for it to be as effective as it's meant to be.  My dieting motivation doesn't last for more then a week at a time but I did pay careful attention during my diet-on weeks and I will say that the results were more obvious during those weeks and my skin was smoother.  Even during my diet-off weeks the cream did make a difference but it wasn't as dramatic.

I would buy Vichy Cellu Destock again and would even use it as a daily body moisturizer, I liked the texture that much!  If you have a similar cellulite obsession and are looking for a new cream - this one is definitely worth a try!

  1. I've heard about Vichy! Apparently they have a really good anti-stretch marks cream. I didn't have to use it during pregnancy as I didn't get stretch marks but I heard it's really good!

  2. it sounds interesting,i might try it! thanks

  3. Wow... I really love this product. :)

  4. I absolutely love the Celludestock cream, it works like a charm! I found it randomly through this app, timeRAZOR, where you can get a discount coupon for it and enter this contest. But it also directed me to this Booty Break website that is totally hilarious. You get to pick a male models booty and make them do all kinds of funny stuff. I found it at https://go.timerazor.com/a/2eA so definitely go check it out.

  5. This product actually works - and I'm still surprised. I'm a 45 yr old woman with cellulite pockets around the belly, knees and upper thighs and 2 small fatty pockets in the inner thighs. I used both Cellu DeStock creams (belly and Aqua-legs,butt,thighs) for 6 months, 2x a day in a desperate attempt to rid the problem areas. Belly skin is definitely smoother with a 30% reduction in cellulite. Dramatic difference on the bum area - cellulite is nearly gone. Knees a bit more tricky - definite difference by @50%. What I like most is the fat reduction in the little pockets of nasty, giggly fat in my inner thighs. That's smoothed right down and quite well reduced. So, imo - the DeStock is not a substitute for diet and excersize - but it sure makes the results more dramatic and takes care of problem areas that diets just don't touch. I think I'll use it until I'm 90 and don't really care anymore....

  6. Amazing product indeed! I've been using it for a little more than a week without exercise or diet , my cellulite on my thighs is almost gone!!! I didn't have a major problem though, but when I started having some, I got panicked cause I never had! For about a year, I've been using several products and some exercise whenever I have the time , but I could still see the cellulite...Just about when I was ready to accept the fact that I would never get rid of it (maybe with diet and exercise , which I don't have the time or the courage to do...it's not that I have such a big problem after all...), my mom got me this product (Vichy Cellu Destock)... So I said, what the heck, lets give it a try ... Amazing!!!! I just had to tell someone!!! Girls, just try it!!! You have nothing to loose but cellulite!!! Nice work Vichy!!! Thank you!!! You've made another happy girl!!! ;-)

  7. Well I have just rubbed the cream on for the first time eek! Rating out of 10 how bad my cellulite is around base of bottom and hamstring area, hmmm 8/10, Do I exercise? Yes! Do I exercise well? Yes. Do I eat with an awareness of right and wrong? Yes.

    So I have purchased a 300ml tube and plan on using it once a day to make it last a little longer. I also plan on massaging it into the leg for a minute or so on each side. Each week I will update you....see how we go!
