Another beauty review brought to you by Bionic Bronnie…
Murad’s Firm and Tone Serum is a cellulite-reducing gel that shows almost-instant results during my testing. I apply it and then use two rubber massage brushes to vigorously work the serum into my hips, abdomen, legs and upper arms.
I have relatively minor cellulite issues, but this gel goes to work immediately! It assists in draining stored fluids and reducing dimpling with Cat’s Claw and Caffeine; increases circulation via Cayenne Pepper; and Horse Chestnut Tree extract and Tiger’s Herb work at restoring firm, smooth skin.
I typically apply a generous amount and really work it in as described above. As with all cellulite treatments, vigorous rubbing helps break up the stored fluids and fats thus assisting the serum in its work. I also use this serum on my neck and bust- it helps firm skin up quickly.
Murad Firm and Tone Serum costs $77 for a 6.75 oz tube at Sephora online, or stores.
