Hi Guys & Dolls!
I'm excited to introduce you all to a brand new range which has just launched in Boots nationwide called Dr. Ceuticals.
Dr. Ceuticals claim:
"TOP TO TOE BODY TRANSFORMATION
WITHOUT GOING UNDER THE KNIFE"
“Dr on call”! Dr Ceuticals is a NEW high performance body care line created to target all those hard
to treat problem areas. Formulated with key active ingredients, proven to work and give spectacular
results within weeks. With a little exercise and a thorough top to toe body care regime, Dr Ceuticals,
your own personal ‘at home’ Dr, has been carefully formulated to make a measurable difference
to the most common complaints – loss of firmness, sagging, cellulite and lack of skin tone. Tested
thoroughly using user trials and clinical analysis this is a breakthrough body care range.
I've been putting off starting a new fitness regime for far too long long, however having learnt more about the Dr. Ceuticals range, I think it may actually have spurned me on to dust off that old gym membership again and test out some of their "body transforming" products in addition to a healthy diet and excercise programme and share my progress and results on this blog.
I've been trying out the Dr. Ceuticals Leg Tone & Shimmer cream and I'm really liking it so far.
"Sexy, glowing and toned skin all in one!
Enhance the look of your skin whilst fighting cellulite and targeting those pesky wobbly bits all at the same time. Dr. Ceuticals Leg Tone & Shimmer was developed to do exactly that! Slim, toned and sexy legs give us the confidence to dare to bare. Our multi-active Leg Tone & Shimmer highlights the skin instantly with a subtle shimmer whilst getting to work on stubborn areas of saggy skin. This light hydrating lotion imparts a healthy glow whilst helping to firm and tone the skin and improve the appearance of cellulite."
The product comes in a very generous 200ml sized squeezable tube. The packaging is very slick and sleek - all white with teal and silver accents. It's almost quite clinical looking - which I guess imparts to the "Dr" part of it's namesake.
Aqua (Water), PEG-12 Dimethicone, Polysorbate 20, Mica, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Parfum (Fragrance), Ethylhexylglycerin, CorallinaOfficinalis Extract, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenylmethylpropional, Limonene, Linalool, Alpha-isomethyl ionone
The shimmer cream inside is a nice thick and rich formula. The first thing I noticed was the lovely fragranced scent - it's a lovely "expensive" smelling scent, reminiscent of a cologne. The cream is infused with micro silver sparkles throughout, which gives your skin a beautiful shimmering glow which catches the light to show off the iridescent sparkle. Once the cream has been applied and rubbed in, you are still left with the beautiful scent of the product lingering on your skin.
Instantly: A subtle, sexy shimmer for legs, knees and ankles to add a healthy glow
28 days: Helps firm the skin by up to 39% *Centimetre loss of up to 1.7cm

The average and mean value was 14.7% tested for 28 days on 17 people, 2 applications a day.^ The average and mean value was 0.3cm tested for 28 days on 17 people, 2 applications a day. *Active ingredient tested at same level but in a different medium.
I've been applying this every morning to clean dry skin after showering and I massage it in gently, in circular motions until the product is fully absorbed. It gives your legs a gorgeous sparkly shimmer - perfect for summer for showing off your pins in! I'm also really looking forward to using this product coming up to the Christmas / New Year party season (Gosh, I can't believe I'm already talking about Xmas!) to give your skin a festive glow.
I cannot yet comment on the firming and toning capabilities of this product yet, as Dr. Ceuticals recommend using this product for 3 months for maximum benefit to see the results, and I haven't been using it that long yet. I'm planning however on trialing this out for the next few weeks and once I hit the 3 month mark coming back to you all with an update as to how I got on.
I'm definitely loving the gorgeous, sparkly sheen it gives my legs however, so I'd buy the product again for that reason alone!
You can get the Dr. Ceuticals Leg Tone & Shimmer from Boots throughout Ireland for €20.39 for 200mls.
