Sorting Out My Wobbly Bits With Soap & Glory ??

OK I'll start by saying that I don't believe that you can firm your wobbly bits up just by massaging in a cream, you need a good diet and plenty of exercise to do that, but since my diet is at times debatable and since I can do almost no exercise, in order to get beach ready I thought I'd give a cream the almost impossible task of firming up my bum. Don't worry guys no shots of my wobbly bits here, but I did decide to try a product from one of the high streets most quirkiest beauty brand, Soap & Glory.

Soap & Glory's Sit Tight appears to be a miracle in a tube, firming and toning our bums and thighs while we do nothing else other than sit down! I'm not going to get into the science behind it, I'm no expert but they claim that this product which is high in caffeine, uses the sitting down motion (or lack of it!) helps the product to work better in breaking down the fatty tissue on the lower body. Not only that but they claim that the simple action of massaging the product in everyday will help boost the circulation in the bum and thighs helping to shift fat and fluid build up. If the blurb is to be believed that could be the lazy girls answer to a firmer bum, bring it on I say!

I have to say straight away I have given this stuff a fair go, I don't mean I've used it for weeks, I have used this stuff for months and months, so yeah I've given it a fair crack of the whip!

Boxed and packaged in a 200ml squeezy tube, Sit Tight, has a off white colour, and a gel/cream type texture. It has a slightly menthol based smell.

Soap & Glory advise that you massage the product into your thighs every morning, as you know I'm not a morning person so I've been using it every evening instead. It spreads out really easily on the skin and after a little bit of massaging it absorbs right in leaving no stickiness or tackiness.

This is when the magic supposedly happens and do you know what? you can feel something happening. When you sit down you can actually feel a tingling, slight burning sensation on your thighs, this was a bit of a shock to be honest, it was pretty tingly! Strangely enough though I always see that as a positive with firming products it actually feels as though its working and doing something, no pain no gain as they say, and it only lasts a minute or two so its no big issue. Well were my thighs miraculously firmed, toned and cellulite free, no of course not! As I said you can't achieve a perfect body just by rubbing on a cream, but I do think that the skin on my thighs feels smoother and a tiny bit firmer. The difference is particularly evident just after the cream has absorbed, so I guess it's something you need to keep using, I'm definitely going to keep using it after all it isn't doing any harm. Soap & Glory Sit Tight retails at around £14.30 for 200ml from Boots and ASOS. Any questions please let me know and do you have any cellulite or body firming cream recommendations? Is there such as thing as a miracle product?


  1. I love this stuff! I did a comparison between it and the Jergens Firming Lotion recently :) The S&G is much more potent!


  2. The Nivea My Silhouette cream is pretty good. It claims to reduce specific areas by up to 3cm in 4 weeks and I can't say I measured the before and after, but my skin was definitely more toned while I was using it.
