The holiday season can definitely do a number on our bodies, from all of the amazing holiday food, to the fact that so many of us use the holidays as an excuse not to work out, that usually means that come January, we realize that we only have a few short months to get back to beach ready.  I don’t think I’m alone is dreading January for that very reason…right?  Melvita

I love to eat and I hate to work out, so that usually means that I spend lots of time and too much effort finding ways to cheat my way back into shape…that almost never works out for me by the way.  While I do seem to have a hard time finding a product that just magically makes me look like a Victoria’s Secret swimsuit model (I’m beginning to think such a product doesn’t exist) I do love products that help get me on track and ready for swimsuit season, products like those from Melvita!

If you’re not familiar with familiar with the Melvita brand, here’s the scoop…

Beekeeper and biologist Bernard Chevilliat, founded Melvita in 1983 as a way to offer the masses cosmetics without all of the chemicals that are in most traditional cosmetics.  Melvita has been a pioneer in the organic and natural cosmetics and has grown to become one of France’s leading organic brands.  In addition to the authenticity, the ethical approach that Melvita takes with its products, it's founder Bernard Chevilliat’s passion  that helps set Melvita apart from their competition. 

When I was approached to do a review for Melvita’s Algascience Contouring Serum, I couldn’t resist trying it out, after all, it does say that it helps your body look more lean and toned and who wouldn’t want to try a slimming and toning serum?  I also love that Melvita’s products are organic skincare products that are good for my skin and not full of the chemicals that most traditional skin care brands contain! 

About Algascience Contouring Serum from Melvita…


Inspired by Slimming Chronobiology, the Algascience Contouring Serum is the first serum that takes into account the biological rhythms of the body. Formulated with an exclusive 3-seaweed complex, it provides multi-action effectiveness. Coralline, an "intelligent" active ingredient, promotes fat burning during the day and helps prevent fat storage at night. Palmaria provides draining action, while Fucus and Caffeine offer contouring properties. The 3-seaweed complex helps reduce the build-up of fatty deposits and improves skin firmness and tone.

Algascience Contouring Serum, offers superior anti-cellulite benefits and improves skin’s firmness by 78%.  Apply the serum day and night to trouble areas such as the stomach area, hips, thighs, in a clinical study, 94% of volunteers saw a reduction in fatty tissue!

I’ve only been using the Algascience Contouring Serum for a little less than 2 weeks, but I swear I can tell a difference in the firmness of my skin.  While true results will only appear after using the serum for several weeks, I can tell a difference in the way my skin feels so I can’t wait to see how well the product performs after I’ve been using it a little longer.  I’ll be sure to keep y’all updated with results soon!
