It’s important to love yourself and your body the way it is, but let’s be honest; we can all use a little help sometimes to improve the appearance of areas on our body that bug us the most. If you’re looking for a solution to tackling dimpled, unevenly textured or lax skin, then Environ’s newest addition to the Body EssentiA range will be right up your alley.
The new Environ Body EssentiA Contouring Cream joins the likes of Environ’s much-loved Derma-Lac Lotion and Vitamin A, C, & E Body Oil to form a powerful skin firming, hydrating trio that is hard to beat. If your skin is looking a little lacklustre and can use a boost, then you can’t go wrong with this impressive range of products.
I’ve been using Environ’s Derma-Lac Lotion and Vitamin A, C, & E Body Oil combo for over 5 years now. It’s my go-to duo for when my skin needs a pick-me-up, and it’s the only products that work for me to keep painful ingrown hairs on my legs at bay. Derma-Lac lotion is truly a holy grail product for me and if you need proof you can read my full review of the product from way back in 2015 here. Environ’s Derma-Lac is a moisturising lotion AND a kickass exfoliator in one and contains a medium concentration of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to leave your skin feeling smooth and soft after every use.
Combine Derma-Lac Lotion with Environ’s Vitamin A, C, & E Body Oil and dry skin won’t stand a chance! This light, finely textured oil is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and nourishes skin like nobody’s business. The multi-functional oil can be used to relieve the appearance of dry, sun-damaged skin, or sensitised skin to provide immediate relief.
Introducing Body EssentiA Contouring Cream
Now, in a rather genius move, Environ has added a body contouring cream into the mix. Environ’s Body EssentiA Contouring Cream is a wonderful innovation that fits right alongside the Derma-Lac Lotion and Body Oil to keep your skin in tip-top condition. The cream can be used to treat dimpled, unevenly textured and lax skin on areas such as the jawline, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and knees.
Environ says the cream can help to visibly smooth, firm, tighten and reshape the appearance of skin with powerful 3-dimensional contouring effects. This is thanks to a powerful tri-complex containing specialised ingredients. Intenslim works to smooth, tone, firm and tighten the appearance of skin while Phytosonic boasts skin contouring properties. Vitamin C has been added to help protect the skin from further free-radical damage and Vitamin E along with Pro-Vitamin B5 helps to promote a healthy-looking, resilient skin appearance. Lastly, Vexyl SP works to leave skin looking and feeling more hydrated, silky soft and nourished.
I’ve been using the Body EssentiA Contouring Cream for 2 months now, and I am loving the results. It’s lightweight and quick-absorbing and is a dream to use. You simply massage it into the skin in the morning and evening and follow it with Derma-Lac Lotion and A, C and E Oil.
I’ve included the cream into my daily routine of applying the Derma-Lac Lotion and Body Oil to my legs, and it’s made a real difference to the appearance of my skin, most notably on my upper thighs. I’ve noticed an improvement in the appearance of the dimples on my upper thighs and am very excited to use the cream on other areas of my body to see the results. The cream is by no means a miracle cure for cellulite and lax skin, but, when used religiously, it definitely left my skin looking and feeling softer, healthier, and tightened.
If you’re looking for enhanced results from the product you can try incorporating Environ’s Micro-Needling Technology at home. Before applying the cream, prepare the skin with Environ’s Cosmetic Body Roll-CIT. This will help to deliver the powerful ingredients in the cream to where they are needed most. I haven’t had the privilege of trying out Environ’s body micro-needling tool, but I’ve read rave reviews from those who have tried it, so it’s well worth trying if you’re serious about tackling dimpled skin head-on.
You can also visit an Environ stockist spa to try the Professional Focus On Body Profile Treatment — an intensive, 30-minute body treatment that safely stimulates the skin, delivering up to 100 times more of Environ’s powerhouse formulations.
Environ Body EssentiA Contouring Cream is available at Environ salon and spa stockists at a recommended retail price of R840.
