Cellutone Review

For many women, cellulite is the most dreaded word in the English language. These fatty deposits deep under the skin cause unsightly dimples primarily around the stomach, thighs, and buttocks. Women, and even men, are willing to try just about anything to get rid of cellulite.

Cellutone is one of the products we reviewed. Our panel looked at the effectiveness of Cellutone, along with ingredients, price, and final results. Read on to discover what we found.

What is Cellutone?

Cellutone is a cellulite treatment cream manufactured by L'Avenir. The name of the company was the first thing about Cellutone that made us suspicious. Many people have an ingrained perception that the French make the best cosmetics and beauty products. And though that might be true in some cases, it's become a trick some companies use to make their products seem more legitimate. L'Avenir certainly sounds French, but they are, in reality, a small company based out of New Jersey.

Cellutone claims their wondrous cellulite cream works with their patented Ovasome Technology. It turns out, this is just a fancy way of saying Cellutone contains whole eggs in the formula. Since we had never heard of eggs being an effective cellulite treatment, our curiosity was further piqued.

Cellutone Ingredients

As we mentioned, the main ingredient of Cellutone is whole eggs. Cellutone maintains that a combination of over 70 minerals and vitamins contained in eggs somehow gets rid of cellulite. Even more curious is the fact that Cellutone cries out against ingredients that have long been known to fight cellulite such as caffeine. WebMD goes on to say that while eating eggs may contribute to cellulite loss, including eggs as an ingredient in a cellulite cream is not effective and in fact borderline quackery. Other ingredients of Cellutone are:

  • Sweet almond oil - beyond providing lubrication, does nothing.
  • Glycerin - another lubricant
  • Triethanolamine - a chemical to reduce acidity and balance pH.
  • PEG-8 - and emulsifier.
  • Glyceryl stearate - another emulsifier.
  • Cetyl lactate - considered safe for cosmetic use but can cause irritation.
  • Lavender oil - has many uses, but cellulite reduction is not among them.
  • Geranium oil - smells nice. No other uses.
  • Methylparaben - an antifungal agent.
  • Sorbitan Stearate - another emulsifier. It's difficult to keep whole eggs creamy.
  • Cyclomethicone - a form of silicone.
  • Juniper oil - fragrance.
  • Sambucus Nigra extract - used in Russia for congestion but it is listed as a poison to mammals.
  • A blend of extracts - includes sage, cumin, caraway, parsley, cowslip, and grapefruit seed. None of these is known for any sort of anti-cellulite properties.

Buy Cellutone

Cellutone is sold via their website and is also available on several affiliate sites. Pricing starts at $79.99, which is quite steep for a fragrant egg cream. They offer a 14 day risk-free trial but if you do not specifically call for a return authorization within 14 days, you will be charged $69.73. Beyond this first order, there are no other guarantees.

Does Cellutone Work?

Cellutone was one of the biggest jokes our reviewers came across. There is nothing in whole eggs that reduces cellulite. In fact, whole eggs cannot even penetrate the skin. If you still want to try it, we recommend going to the grocery store and spending $1.29 on a dozen eggs and you can do whatever you wish with them without it breaking your bank.
