Default Got worries about sagging/excess skin?

Hi All,

Just thought I'd share something I read on EDiets. Subscibed to look at the plan but cancelled because I didn't like the price.

BUT .....before I left the program I read their boards. Someone did a comparison of different body lotions on the market that help firm skin. I'm sure we all have that worry about the excess skin left when we reach goal.

The lotions compared where :Nivea with copper (can't remember all names exactly), Neutrogena firming lotion, and St Ives Firming lotion. And I think they used some dept/expensive brand too.
However, many found the the St Ives was the best...eventhough it was the cheapest.

Hey, you never know! I like to put it on after shower at the gym or home. Try to do it everyday if not twice a day. Every time I do it I like to think about the future. Now, if only this stuff could take care of what gravity has done to my chest and butt ****, think I'd bath in it then!

Good to know, because that's the kind that I use every day. I use a Loofah in the shower, and then put the St. Ives Firming Lotion on.

Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the info! I sit and stare at the rows of bottles on the shelf and cant decide which I should use. I'm going out tomorrow to get the StIves!

i've got a little loose skin now (more wrinkly skin around my thighs and lower stomach), but i didn't think lotions really worked (i thought over time some of it would go away). Its good to know that this works and so I will go out and get some lotion.

thats not a very manly thing to do, but what the ****.

Manly lotion? No comment.

I had a $3-off coupon for Loreal. I worry about this every day. I can see myself getting smaller, but am still worried about having to have the excess skin surgically removed. *sigh*

There have been several threads about this. I did a search, click on this & then there are 6 pages to click around on:

Default Thanks!

Thanks so much for your post about the different kinds of lotions. I am going to go out and look for the St. Ives firming lotion. I had NO idea they had any! I use a lot of their products, like the apricot scrub, because they actually work! Can't wait to try this one!
