Cellu-Shape Review: Does It Really Work?
Cellu-Shape – At A Glance
Timewise Cellu-Shape Contouring System, a two-product cellulite reduction regimen formulated, produced and manufactured by Mary Katy Cosmetics, a multi-million dollar leader in both skincare products and supporting entrepreneurial endeavors for women. The founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, while not a skincare specialist herself, has established an empire of scientists who consult with dermatologists and medical experts, and has devoted millions of dollars to quality, safety and performance testing of products and has established a U.S. plant that is recognized as an FDA registered drug manufacturer; a distinction that very few cosmetics manufacturers can claim.
As a cellulite reducing product, Cellu-Shape relies on a two-pronged approach to reduce the appearance of cellulite-featuring a daytime body moisturizer and a nighttime body gel. While there are few details regarding the composition of the elements in the contouring system, extensive information is available supporting the Mary Kay reputation for quality with a focus on both the user of the products and the Beauty Consultant sellers of Mary Kay products.
Cellu-Shape – Facts
Mary Kays TimeWise Cellu-Shape Contouring System features two clinically tested formulations. The Daytime Body Moisturizer is designed to stimulate cellular activity, increase hydration and begin the firming and toning process. TimeWiseCellu-Shape Nighttime Body Gel is formulated to complete the firming process and strengthen the skin’s support system to minimize the visible signs of cellulite. The products’ claims of less visible cellulite and lose of up to ½ inch on each thigh are supported by a dermatologist’s review of a 12-week study at an independent laboratory.

Cellu-Shape – Conclusion
Given the name recognition, reputation and research and development dollars of the Mary Kay Cosmetics empire, it would seem that the Cellu-Shape Contouring System should be an unbeatable cellulite reducing product. It may very well be, but unfortunately, the company does little to inform the user about what makes up the “powerful mix of ingredients”, or how and why they achieve what they are reported to achieve. Even so,Cellu-Shape is not overly expensive and fans of the Mary Kay line of cosmetics may feel confident to give it a try.
Cellulite refers to fat deposits under the surface of the skin giving it a dimpled, irregular appearance. The vast majority of women have cellulite, some estimates are as high as 90 percent. Cellulite is routinely found in the thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach. Unfortunately, maintaining an optimal body weight, eating healthy, staying active, and even regular exercise may not be enough to combat cellulite.
