I had a less than positive experience with Cosmetasa’s Hot Cream Massage Gel and give it a 1.5 out of 5 stars.
What saved it from being a 1-star product was that it didn’t leave me with a searing allergic reaction and a matching rash to go with it.
Needless to say, I’m not a fan of this hot cream.
This cream brands itself for treating a lovely list of nuisances like “Anti- Cellulite, Skin Tightening, Toning & Muscle and Joint Pain”, all of which I have and would benefit by treating said nuisances.
Unlucky for me, this hot cream fell flat in basically every way.
It did make my skin feel tighter but along with that, it felt incredibly dry and dehydrated! This hot cream uses alcohol and witch hazel, which are usually the culprit of that overly dry, crackly feeling.
And my cellulite looked remarkably the same and the dimples were still dancing around in their usual places.
As for the promise of muscle and joint pain relief, I was just as unlucky.
I have really bad pain in my lower back, legs, and joints from arthritis at a way too young age. I have a desperate need for some relief and this hot cream left me nothing but hotheaded.
Half the time these hot creams leave me with burn marks they get so hot but this one was like a pitiful, flickering flame that barely heated up for 20 minutes.
I’m so confused and upset by the lack of relief and proposed heat that wasn’t happening.
Adding to that, the application process is a full-on nightmare that happens not once but twice a day.
The smell is a nauseating, overpowering menthol/peppermint explosion that lingers around for hours.
When I visited Cosmetasa’s website, my computer alerted me with several issues and concerns, and it made me wary of the site and the company itself.
I decided to buy it on Amazon instead, where it has a suspicious amount of 5-star ratings and a poor “C” grade score from a tool that analyzes the existing ratings for reliability and rates them based on the results.
So all in all, I’m not a fan of this product and definitely don’t recommend it to anyone based on my bad experience.
Cosmetasa Hot Cream Massage Gel comes out of the squeezy bottle as an orange-colored, gooey gel.
The company interchangeably refers to it both as a cream and as a gel.
I’d say it’s a cross between the two.
It applies nicely like a creamier lotion but has a slicker, pudding-like texture to it.
I loathe applying this hot cream with a passion.
For cellulite treatment, you have to apply the gel to your areas of concern and apply medium pressure with the massager brush, and massage in circular motions to stimulate the skin and until the gel is absorbed.
Then you have to wrap the affected areas for up to 4 hours. This is supposed to enhance the thermogenic effects and target your cellulite. It warns that this makes the cream heat up even more, but I didn’t really notice a huge difference and it never felt hot enough or that it was doing anything.
Also, trying to go about your day with your belly, butt, and thighs wrapped is the absolute worst. Thankfully working from home was in full effect but it still was so uncomfortable and distracting.
The whole process is time-consuming, smelly, and unpleasant and not to mention you have to do it 2x daily! Double trouble at its worst.
As for sore muscles and joint pain relief, you apply the gel liberally to the targeted areas and use gentle circular motions. And you continue this until the cream is fully absorbed.
For whatever reason, this hot cream didn’t really want to heat with me. That was disappointing but I’m thankful it didn’t leave chemical burns on me as so many other hot creams have. I have very sensitive skin and even if you don’t, it’s always advised to spot test the cream first to see how your skin reacts to it. Too many times I’ve made the mistake of lubing up my entire body, only for it to immediately turn into a lava fueled attack on my skin.
Also, make sure you wash your hands immediately after application and avoid touching your face or getting it near any sensitive areas.
One plus is that the gel dries really quickly.
Once you’ve massaged it in with the brush, it dries in about 1-2 minutes.
The faint effect of the “hot” cream starts in at about 2 minutes and is hardly felt.
The barely-there heat lasts only about 20 minutes, which is so strange for a typical hot cream.
Smell (in the bottle)
This smell totes the classic “hot cream” scent, which is 9/10 headache-inducing.
It’s so strong and pungent and just hits you right in the face.
It’s an overpowering menthol/peppermint mess that is so gross!
Definitely be wary if you’re sensitive to smells because this one is so incredibly unpleasant.
Smell (a few hours after application)
After application, the gross, minty, menthol odor hangs around with you for a few hours.
The smell is so strong and unsettling.
And when you wrap the treated areas, you just feel like you’re zipped up in an awful sleeping bag full of Vicks VapoRub and regret.
Short Term Results
When I first started using this hot cream, I didn’t see or feel anything positive happening.
The biggest thing I noticed was that my skin felt really dehydrated.
Not fun when your skin feels dry and tight!
I think it’s from the alcohol and witch hazel in the formula that leads to that dehydrated effect.
Long Term Results
The longer I used this hot cream, the more unamused and disheartened I felt.
It touts a number of benefits like anti-cellulite, tightening and toning, and relief from muscle and joint pain.
Sadly, the only thing I felt was an extreme annoyance and the fact my skin felt drier and tighter than ever.
After continual use of massaging twice daily and wrapping and waiting, my cellulite ripples didn’t go anywhere and my skin just felt so dry.
I will say that using the massaging brush did feel stimulating and seemed to help increase blood flow and movement at the time. Out of everything, I think that has the most potential for positive effects.
And for the muscle and joint pain relief, I felt zip.
My poor aching back (as literally speaking as can be) desperately needs some relief and this hot cream felt less than lukewarm.
It barely would heat up, which is what helps provide the results and relief.
I’m dumbfounded by that because I’ve used so many other hot creams with very similar ingredients and those all were piping hot.
So I was left with nothing but grief by the end of my journey with this supposed “hot” cellulite cream.
Cosmetasa’s Hot Cream Massage Gel has a whopping 30 ingredients in their formula, and they say it’s 100% Natural, 87% Organic, and Cruelty-Free.
That’s quite a lot of ingredients going on, but I’ve broken down the more notable ones.
The first ingredient listed is Organic Aloe, which is a very popular cellulite ingredient and is believed to have very soothing qualities that decrease inflammation while improving skin suppleness and hydration.
White Camphor Bark Oil and Menthol Crystals are the active ingredients that create the hot/tingly effect that’s supposed to act as a muscle relaxer.
This formula includes another common cellulite treatment, which is Menthol and it’s thought to temporarily increase blood circulation and may help tighten the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil may be able to reduce inflammation while increasing hydration, which in turn may help soften and smooth your skin texture.
Black Pepper Oil is known for improving circulation. This particular oil may also aid in toning and clearing pores, making cellulite dimples on your skin look less noticeable.
I bought my set of the Hot Cream Message Gel and massager brush from Amazon for $17.95.
They sell it for the same price on their website (with an added $2 for flat rate, 3-5 business day shipping).
That’s super reasonable but I bought it from Amazon instead because my computer threw up a bunch of literal red flags when I went to the site.
It notified me of some potential seller issues, limited internet presence, and that the website was missing common professional website attributes.
So I played it safe and opted for Amazon instead.
The bottle is 8.8 ounces, so it works out to be $2.04 per ounce, which is extremely cheap.
You do have to factor in the massage brush but either way, the cost is far lower than your average cellulite product.
I don’t think the price is worth it though because the product just didn’t hold up for me at all.
