A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting some lovely ladies from Biotherm. I didn’t know that much about the brand but I made some discoveries that need to be shared – namely D.Code and S.Code which are the first products available to help combat genetic cellulite. “Cellulite comes in two forms: behavioural and genetic. Behavioural cellulite accounts for 70% of all cellulite, and is connected to lifestyle. The remaining 30% is genetic cellulite, which is hereditary and unfortunately the most problematic. For the first time Biotherm have created a product designed to fight both types of cellulite. D.Code is an innovative new product that helps fight behavioural cellulite and genetic cellulite.”
This basically means that that horrible layer of fatty stuff around your legs and bum that you just can’t get to budge, no matter how much exercise you do or chocolate you don’t eat it, can finally be addressed. Biotherm’s D.Code intensely hydrates the skin to leave the surface looking and feeling visibly smoother – it’s this dehydration that causes the ‘orange peel’ look on skin.
The formula is a gel texture that contains extract of Sacred Lotus, Yerba Mate, Green Coffee, Caffeine and Gingko Biloba. It smells lovely and contains delicate shimmers… although being applied on your cellulite I’m not sure why as you don’t want anyone looking there! You apply this morning and night and leave it to absorb – it does have a sticky feeling that takes a while to sink in, so I wouldn’t advise you slap it on before heading out the door though. However, it does feel nice to apply and makes it easy to massage the skin and get the circulation going so it’s a pleasure to use.
Added to the range is also S.Code which does the exact same thing but is formulated specifically for the stomach and waist area. Apparently D.Code was an absolute sell out when it launched so I don’t doubt that S.Code will be exactly the same when it launches in the next few weeks. The promise is huge and I can totally understand why women are stepping over each other to grab their supply of these beauties. I’ve been using them on and off for a few weeks and they have made my skin smoother and the massaging motion definitely helps the skin, but as yet I’ve not miraculously dropped a dress size. Here’s hoping for a miracle though!
