Cellulite is quite a sensitive topic, especially if you are a mother. Not only there are stretchmarks on the tummy, but cellulites around the thigh and other body parts also appear. It may be shame to show it off, but it does tells a story.
Being a mother of 2 cute boys, I have cellulites since forever. I had tried and used a lot of topical creams and oils to get rid of those pesky marks but to no avail, nothing works.
So in today’s article, I am going to cover a product that has helped me in reducing the cellulites that I have.
Before we start, the product is made in Italy, so you are probably new to the brand. The product’s name is the Pure Actives Anticellulite Capsules.

The product comes in an individual capsule of green color in a see through brown,glass bottle.
There are only information in Italian language on the bottle’s label. However, you may found some English description on the box and via Google.
1 capsule contains 4 ml of oil-like serum that can be used up to 2 times.
It has a subtle coffee-like scent
Rich, thick serum with a nice slip
First off, if you are a coffee lover, you probably would be addicted to the scent. It is calming in a way that I keep on sniffing the remained serum on my skin.
The serum itself is like a thick massage oil, it glides easily and sits on top of the skin. It sinks into the skin slowly making sure that it creates a nice barrier on the skin to retain moisture loss. While it leave a filmy layer, it does not feels greasy.
I use 1 capsule per day, half capsule for 1 time use where I use it in the morning and at night time. I use it at areas that have cellulites around my thigh to the bikini line, at the stretchmarks around my tummy, and at my cracked heels. I did not face any trouble spreading the product around these areas as it has a nice slip and being rich with oil-like texture, it does not absorbs too fast into the skin. So, I can take my time to massage it throughout the targeted areas.
Although I took some photos to compare and to easily see any improvements, I could not share the photo here. I’ll try my best to describe the changes that I can see within the usage period of 2 weeks.
I noticed that the cellulites around my thighs are a little bit reduced with the skin feels a little softer. However, this result is based on 2 times usage per day. You may experience a different (faster/slower) improvement according to how many times you massage this shock treatment on the targeted area. There are still some prominent cellulites especially at the area near to the bikini line.
I am quite surprised at how this serum helps to soften the skin around the stretchmarks. Before I use this product, the stretchmarks on my tummy are quite pesky, with a bit of dry and scaly condition. After 2 weeks, they are still there but with a softer skin.
I have cracked heels since a few months ago, I believe because of my increasing body weight being one of the reasons apart from not using slippers in the house. I usually would put on some creams I bought from drugstores to help reduce the issue but nothing seems to give me the satisfaction. After I religiously put this serum on my cracked heels for about 1 week, I noticed the skin at my heels are softer and there is some improvement with the cracked area.
After using this product at different places that has the common harden skin issue on my body parts, I can conclude that it has help to help soften the skin at those troubled areas with continuous usage. The keyword here is to consistently put the product daily.
I believe with continuous usage, it will help to reduce the concern of dry, scaly, cracked, cellulites issues of mine.
