Finally, a way to get rid of cellulite that actually works!!
on September 12, 2012
I am an athletic, middle-aged woman who works out regularly. In spite of that fact, my well-toned body has a pad of cellulite that sits on the back of my thighs and rear end. This is very frustrating for me, because no matter how hard I work out, it will not go away. I have tried everything, and it is a problem that has plagued me for years. I have a nice, well-toned butt and thighs, but the pad of cellulite that lays on top of them drives me insane. I saw the Honeybell Bodybuffer advertised online, read the literature and a couple of the reviews, but after I saw on one website the before and after photos that a woman had taken of her thighs, and in spite of my suspicions and doubt, I thought, "why not give it a shot?" I've already tried everything else, and there is that 30-day money back guarantee.
So I bought one. Yes, the price is hefty, but the only alternative I had not tried yet was liposuction, and my Sister-in-Law told me that when she had this procedure done, in addition to being very expensive,it was extremely painful and left dents where the instruments had been inserted on her legs. Ouch. So the high price tag paled in comparison all around. I got mine on sale, by the way, for $300, so that was good for me. But I would have paid more if I could not find a sale; I was that determined.
As to the effectiveness of the bodybuffer, all I can say is this: IT WORKS!! I have had mine for less than a week, and already I can see a difference. The silouette of my thighs is different, my saddlebags are shrinking, and when I asked my husband how the back of my legs looked, he said (in total disbelief), "Oh...my...God...it's working! The dimples on the back of your legs are going away!" My skin is smoother, but I can get that from a shower scrub. I'm not complaining, and the massaging effect is very pleasant, but the fact that I am getting results so quickly for the cellulite has me ecstatic. It's not just making the dimples go away, I can actually see that the layer of cellulite is shrinking!! This, in less than a week!! I use it for about eight minutes on each leg and eight to ten minutes on my butt, twice a day, and then follow up with the contour cream. It's a breeze, and I read or watch TV while I'm using it.
The one or two negative reviews I read, I suspect, were probably written by people looking for miracles, or perhaps someone who didn't want to devote too much time to it, or maybe didn't press down firmly like the directions tell you. I can also say that if you are a very large woman, you will probably have to work harder and longer to get results. Likewise, if you don't have a healthy diet, if you don't exercise, if you drink lots of coffee and alcohol, you probably won't get results either. But if you are fairly healthy, can adopt a diet that isn't loaded with carbs, fat, sugar, caffeine and alcohol, have a decent exercise routine (even just walking briskly daily) and above all, are serious about getting that flabby cellulite off your body--then this baby is the answer to your prayers. If you follow the simple directions--it's so easy and pleasant to use--and are diligent about using it twice a day, you can kiss that nasty cellulite goodbye. Once it's gone, maintenance of two or three times a week has been said to keep the cellulite at bay. Don't let the price tag get in the way, you can pay it off, and it's sooooo worth it. I'll keep you posted with updates on here, so check back with me in a month or so. Thanks for listening.
October 7 - update
OK, so I've been using the bodybuffer twice a day for over a month now and I'm very excited to report that the results of my efforts have been worth it. Big breakthrough in the past week. At first I could see that it was helping, but for the next few weeks I didn't see much of a change. I was determined to keep with it, and I think that some people might give up if they don't see miraculous results within the first few weeks. I was in no way going to give up, in fact, I do what I always do...I work harder. I knew that when both my husband and I could see a difference in the first week that there was something to this thing. I think the important thing to remember is that you have to press down really, really hard on the fat in order to get it to break up. In the past week I started to really grind away, harder than ever, and that is when I saw the difference in the cellulite disappearing. My fat in some areas is as deep four inches, and I know it's going to take a while to get where I want to go with this. I could tell that it was shrinking because I could no longer easily grab my saddle bags between my fingers, and that was cool...but the other day my husband noticed, as did I, that all of the sudden, the fat is just giving in and going away. The bodybuffer is truly a God-send...if you decide to buy one, just stick with it and work at it, press down as hard as you can (it actually feels pretty good, and the massage is awesome) and you will see and feel the difference. It's only been about a month that I've been using it, I will report back in a few months, so check back with me.
