I give Botanic Tree HydroXCell Anti Cellulite 1 out of 5 stars.
I was originally excited to try it because on the tube it says “simply organic” and I’m a sucker for anything organic.
And honestly the packaging just looks cute (another thing I’m a sucker for).
But I was sorely disappointed in the entire product.
And it just goes to show to still never judge a book by its cover (or a cellulite product by its adorable packaging).
Because you’ll be wrongly mislead!
So, applying this cream is basically the only thing I like about the whole thing.
It’s a cream but not crazy thick, it’s more like a cross between a lotion and a cream.
It goes on quick and easy and there’s no mess.
But after that, it all goes downhill from there.
One, it smells gross like medicinal minty aloe.
Two, it made my skin really itchy and irritated!
I usually opt for organic products because they’re gentler on my skin.
Not this one!
It also leaves you sticky, which is annoying.
Three, I literally saw negative results.
I feel like it dried out my skin and made my cellulite look even worse.
Four, it says it has a satisfaction guarantee but literally gives you zero details about it, so who knows how it even works.
All in all, I’m totally let down by this product and it was a waste of time and energy.
HydroXCell Anti Cellulite comes out of the tube as a cold, off-white colored cream.
It’s a nice feel that reminds of a mix between a lotion and a true, thick cream.
The texture makes it really easy to apply and blend in.
Application is pretty quick and easy.
The directions say to apply directly to your abs, hips, arms, and booty.
Massage into your skin using circular motions until it’s fully absorbed.
It says to apply daily for 2 months to see results.
The cream feels relatively thick but it goes on smooth and isn’t a pain to blend like other cellulite products.
However, a few minutes into each application, the cream made my skin really itchy and irritated and I don’t like that one bit.
Not fun at all!
It takes about 5 – 10 minutes for this product to fully dry.
I feel like it absorbs into the skin pretty quickly.
But a big downfall is that it leaves you sticky for a while, which is a pet peeve of mine!
Smell (in the bottle)
In the bottle, the cream has a strong minty, aloe smell.
It reminds me of a medicinal scent.
It’s strong and I don’t like it at all.
Smell (a few hours after application)
After applying, the smell lingers for a while.
I’m not a fan of this smell.
It’s just weird and isn’t pleasant.
Short Term Results
Short term results are pretty much non-existent.
I feel like my skin is just a touch softer, but nothing to even get excited about.
I’d rather just use a normal cream that doesn’t make me itchy to get softer skin.
Long Term Results
The long term results are even more disappointing.
There’s negative improvement with the appearance of my cellulite.
I say negative because I feel like it made my skin worse.
It’s super dehydrating and made my skin dry and itchy.
It uses two different alcohols in the formula and I believe that may be a cause to some of these annoying issues.
The whole thing is rather depressing.
Botanic Tree HydroXCell Anti Cellulite puts a lot of emphasis on these ingredients: Caffeine, Provislim Active (fisetin & frambinone), Centella Asiatica extract, Gingko biloba, and Carnitine hydroxicitrate.
Provislim Active contains 2 ingredients I’ve never heard of before, which are fisetin & frambinone.
Their website claims they’re 2 extremely pure active ingredients from natural origins that coordinately act against localized fat.
Botanic Tree says the results are proven and that 93% of volunteers experienced improvement in cellulite, fat reduction, and overall skin enhancement in 2 months.
I’m skeptical of these results and there isn’t much or any information on the study itself.
Centella Asiatica extract and Gingko biloba are said to repair connective tissue, firm skin, and support blood vessels.
Carnitine hydroxicitrate is another ingredient they highlight.
I found little information online regarding this exact ingredient but Botanic Tree says it’s an amino acid that helps burn fat, metabolize fat, and increases fat oxidation.
Caffeine, finally an ingredient that I’m familiar with and one that’s commonly found in cellulite creams.
It’s believed to stimulate blood and lymph flow and dilate blood vessels that temporarily tightens and tones tissue.
Caffeine also increases circulation and reduces water retention, which may help smooth the appearance of cellulite.
On the Botanic Tree website, a 3.4 fluid ounce bottle costs $22.90.
That ends up being $6.73 per ounce of cream.
The price is really affordable.
I like the price, but I just hate the product.
So, save your money and opt for a higher quality cellulite cream.
Botanic Tree HydroXCell Anti Cellulite says it has a money back / satisfaction guarantee.
It mentions multiple times “works or your money back”.
But there’s little to no information about their guarantee.
I can’t find a specific spot on their website that talks about the guarantee and how it works and what you have to do.
At the bottom of the site, it says “free returns – return for free within 30 days”.
But then on the actual product page it says, “If you use during 2 months correctly and do not see the results we guarantee 100% your money back”.
So, which is it?
I suggest reaching out to their customer service department beforehand to figure out what it entails.
