What They Say:
If a cream promises to firm up our skin we already want to know more. When Dr Renaud’s grapefruit firming lotion landed at TLBG HQ we were ready for it!
It’s a lovely formula containing lots of lovely plant goodness to help sooth and improve your skin. Also, its use of grapefruit essential oil gives the product a fabulous fragrance. Don’t worry it isn’t strong – you wont smell like a pina colada.
The cream itself is a wonderful consistency. It’s not oily – but it is rich and feels instantly nourishing on the skin. We found that due to its vitamin E rich ingredients it also kept our skin well hydrated throughout the day.
In terms of the effect on our skin, it really did improve the texture. No, we don’t mean that it took any inches off our thighs or stomachs, but our skin did feel firmer after a few weeks of use. It also really helped improve our skins overall condition. Skin appeared more even and definitely more supple.
We loved using this cream. Just a little application of the lotion left us moisturised enough to last the entire day. In terms of its promises, yes it did deliver for us. It wont help you drop a jean size but it will keep your skin feeling firmer. It’s not cheap at £35, but it does do what it suggests on the bottle. It’s a win win from us.
