Summer is on the way, which means for many the time to shape up, get bikini fit and ready to bare! It’s also time to break out the body sculpting products.

There are many body sculpting products out there claiming to be the next big thing. I’ve put many to the test, some with good effect, some not so good and rather disappointing. Here are a few of the ones that actually worked!

Fanghi d’Alga GUAM Seaweed Mud Cellulite Formula

GUAM body sculpting products have been on the market and made to a patented formula for over 20 years. The algae selected for the product is known to help improve cellulite. Its efficacy has been proven through clinical trials, with an average inch loss of 2cm in each area measured, equating to 22″ for a full body wrap. It is also proven to remineralise, reduce adipose fatty tissue and cellulite, detoxify, increase microcirculation, elasticity and firmness of the skin.
As well as the algae, there is ventilated Clay to remove toxins and dead surface skin cells, Ivy Extract to firm and tone, Fucus, to help with absorption of the mud’s active ingredients through the skin, Horse Chestnut Extract to protect capillary vessels, and Oregano and Lemon essential oils to stimulate, purify and boost microcirculation.
Use is simple, apply and then wrap yourself in cling film for an hour. Best to get someone to help you! With use, I noticed my legs were most definitely smoother and more toned, and I loved the feeling of the cooling clay prior to the wrap.

Self Slim Kit Inch Loss Body Wrap

An at home wrap body sculpting product that features Slim Clay, made up of –

  • Bentonite: Skin clarifying and purification, excellent drawing properties, acts as a poultice.
  • Sodium Chloride: Detoxifies tissue.
  • Magnesium Chloride: Valuable mineral salt; promotes cellular balance, combats stress and fluid retention.
  • Magnesium Sulphate: Stimulates peripheral skin circulation.
Sadly since trying this product I have seen there’s some Propylene Glycol in there and a few other dubious chemicals, but looking at the above ingredients, you could remake the above formula at home fairly simply, and without the undesirables!
Again, use is quite simple, apply the clay then the bandages and lay down for an hour. It’s important not to apply the bandages too tightly, otherwise, you will restrict your circulation and hamper the effectiveness of the clay product!


Etat Pur

Etat Pur Firming Reshaping Body Care helps firm and reshape the figure, smoothing and toning the skin, moisturising whilst also protecting against the harmful effects of free radicals responsible for ageing. The products are quickly absorbed so no waiting around to dress in the morning!

Ideal for people who want to tighten loose skin caused by various reasons including skin ageing, weight fluctuation, sun damage and hormones.

It’s recommended to use this product morning and night.

Etat Pur Caffeine is indicated for cellulite and orange peel appearance of skin, something 9 out of 10 women are affected by. The active ingredient is Caffeine, which has slimming properties and a targeted effect on fat cells when applied. It’s recommended to use this product in the morning, after Etat Pur Firming Reshaping Body Care.

The final product in this trinity is Etat Pur Hydroxyproline, recommended for firming skin – it re-densifies skin tissue, firms and lifts whilst softening. Hydropoxyline is an amino acid found in high proportion in the skin that stimulates the production of collagen, accelerates cell regeneration and moisturises the skin. It’s recommended to use this product in the evening, after applying Etat Pur Firming Reshaping Body Care.
