Botanic Hearth Muscle Jelly is a waste of money.
I give it 1 out of 5 stars.
There’s literally nothing I like about this product.
It states it’s a Muscle Jelly for “Muscle Relaxation & Cellulite Massage”.
Well, it didn’t do either for me…
As far as muscle relaxation and helping with sore muscles, it just tingled/burned at times but didn’t provide any relief.
As for cellulite, it didn’t help my skin AT ALL, it actually made my skin feel worse.
My skin just felt irritated.
It’s also super messy and smells terrible.
Application was a nightmare and I would dread putting in on every day (twice a day!).
It’s a cheap product that doesn’t work.
Save your money and buy a better quality product.
And if you have tight or sore muscles, I’d suggest Icy Hot or BioFreeze sprays or gels.
Application is a DISASTER.
You have to scoop out wet, goopey gel from an open jar and apply it to your problem areas, TWICE per day.
So for one, it’s just unsanitary. I hate the open jar method.
Two, I dreaded applying this every day, not only once, but TWICE.
After you apply it to your problem areas (I did butt, thighs, hips, and belly), it starts to tingle.
It made me SO freezing cold. I literally had goose bumps all over my body and I was so uncomfortable.
I was just standing there butt naked and freezing, it was horrible.
Also, make sure you wash your hands immediately after using because it will burn!
And keep it away from sensitive areas like your eyes, mouth, nose, and ears.
It takes about 10 minutes for the gel to dry.
HOWEVER, the gel has menthol and a “thermogenic action” that makes your skin tingle/burn.
So, you’re left feeling wet and cold for the longest time afterwards!
Smell (in the bottle)
This gel has a very strong minty, medicinal smell in the jar.
A word of caution if you’re sensitive to strong smells because it may give you a headache.
It’s not pleasant smelling at all! YUCK.
Smell (a few hours after application)
After application, the minty, medicinal smell lingers with you for a few hours.
I felt like I smelled SO gross.
I hate the minty smell and it’s very overpowering.
Short Term Results
The short term results are nonexistent…
My skin didn’t look or feel ANY better.
It actually felt more irritated from the gel.
It also didn’t help with my sore muscles.
You’re better off using Icy Hot or BioFreeze if you’re sore.
Long Term Results
I didn’t have any long term results after trying this cellulite product for a while.
I’m SO disappointed.
I had zero improvement with the appearance of my cellulite.
I also didn’t experience any muscle relief or relaxation, like it states.
Overall, a big bummer!
Botanic Hearth Muscle Jelly has quite a few ingredients, but nothing really to get excited over.
It’s 87% organic, so that’s cool and it uses some essential oils.
However, as far as active ingredients, it’s just lacking.
Here are the few that I can pick out: Aloe Leaf Juice, Menthol, and Cinnamon.
Aloe Leaf Juice is beneficial because it’s thought to lower inflammation and increase hydration and the suppleness of skin.
Menthol is believed to increase blood circulation, which is important for healthy skin, and may help tighten the skin.
It’s also used to help soothe tight, sore muscles.
Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants that may aid in firming up the skin.
An 8.8 fl. oz jar costs $14.95 on Amazon.com (since their website isn’t active).
This works out to $1.69 per ounce.
That’s super cheap.
You totally get what you pay for in my opinion.
Not a good value at all!
Not only can I not find a guarantee, I can’t even find an active website!
BotanicHearth.com isn’t even live right now, which is a little concerning.
Just another reason I don’t like this cellulite gel.
