I promised you all an update after a month of using Elancyl products, and here it is (brace yourself for butt pic’s).

To recap, Elancyl asked me if I’d be keen to try a few of their products over a 28 day period and report back. You can read my initial thoughts on the product HERE.

It’s been a bit longer than 28 days (almost 2 months), but I’m THRILLED with the results and I have before & after pic’s (un-retouched) so you can see the difference.

As I explained in my previous post, when I’m asked if cellulite or slimming products work, I always explain that they can make a difference to tone & texture – but only for as long as you use them. Also, body products that work to firm or tone will be far more effective if  you exercise & eat correctly.


I’m actually pretty chuffed at how good my butt & thighs are looking. I can see a vast improvement in firmness and the texture of my skin seems A LOT firmer (please also bear in mind, this ass is a whole 45 years old!)

A recap of the products I’ve been using:

Elancyl Energizing Foaming Scrub (R165) preps the skin so the products you use thereafter perform even better. The new exfoliating micro-particles are plant-based and derived from apricot kernel powder for eff­ective exfoliation. It has ivy extract that helps with toning and a very invigorating scent. I love that this scrub foams too, and often find myself using it as a replacement for my body wash. It’s advisable to use it two to three times a week.

Elancyl Slim Massage Device & Gel Set (R495) and Slim Massage Refill Gel (R195)

Out of all the products available in the Elancyl range, this is my favourite! Its effectiveness lies in the massage method that was developed in collaboration with a physiotherapist as a natural extension of the hand. The combined action of the rollers, which grip and roll the skin simultaneously while maintaining the ideal pressure results in more toned skin and less visible cellulite. When I use it, I can actually feel a tingle on my skin – a sure sign that my circulation has been stimulated.

Used in conjunction with the Anti-Cellulite Concentrate Gel (which smells AMAZING), it reduces the appearance of cellulite, assists with micro-circulation and detoxification and refines the silhouette. Really ladies, I’ve convinced all my friends to buy one of these and they all feel the way I do. I HIGHLY recommend you try this.

Elancyl Slim Design Flat Stomach (R395)

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’ll never have washboard ab’s (I like carbs waaaaay too much). If I’m honest, my tummy is my number one problem area and when I put on any weight, it goes straight to my mid-section. I do not believe that any cream (or laser slimming method) will slim my tummy, but, like I said in my previous post, I’ll give this one a try.

The key ingredient is PCA which is an acid that firms and tightens thanks to its retracting effect on the dermal matrix. Its action comes from the ingredients ability to reorganize the collagen fibers in the skin. There’s also caffeine (stimulates blood flow) and Xanthoxylin (natural ingredient from the Sichuan pepper) that prevents cellulite from recurring. I’ve been applying 2 pumps to the stomach area every morning using the recommended massage technique.

While my tummy circumference hasn’t changed, my waist does look a bit more refined. However, I think that again, this may be down to Elancyl’s brilliant massage methods they suggest one uses when applying the products. Would I purchase this product again? Yes, I probably would.

Elancyl Slim Design Stubborn Cellulite (R395)

At 45 years old, you could call my cellulite “stubborn”. This product was a joy to use and it works to reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite for 24 hours. “But how?”, I hear you asking.

 It has a caffeine complex that stimulates circulation, contains Salacia that de-hardens, Ivy for firming and Phloridzin to drain pockets of fat. It’s also not sticky and also has a slight light-reflecting quality that has a visual smoothing effect.

Elancyl Firming Body Cream (R290)

This is a maintenance product that is applied daily to firm & nourish the skin. I adore its light and non-sticky formula that gives the skin a velvety feel. It contains Ivy extract to firm, Safflower Oil to nourish and Vitamin C to help restructure the skin. I said it before, and I’ll say it again: This is one of the nicest slimming maintenance products I’ve ever used and, considering the price (when compared to more high-end brands like Clarins) it’s well worth R290.

It’s been such a problem area for me post baby and would love to give it a boost!

I’ve only heard great things about this Elancyl range of products and when it’s reaffirmed by a great post on In my Bag, i know it would help in my Firming.

Hi Candice I would love the Elancyl products because when I was younger I totally loved it from the very first application! and it Works like a charm – 100%

I would love to win this as remember using these products in the eighties.. And also with great success and remember they also smelt very nice..but that was almost 40 years ago, and this would be a challenge on the 60 year old bod, but am always up to a good challenge… So pick me…

Please please please my podgy butt and tummy need these products so much

Heard about these products a few weeks ago and didn’t believe that they truly work. But after seeing your post, I’m starting to believe that they work. I’d loooove to win this hamper because I’m only 19 years old but I have so much cellulite on my thighs, also stretch marks and high pigmentation mostly on my thighs because I’m quite thick. I’d love to try out this products because I’ve tried almost everything and nothing works. I also have “chicken skin” so that adds more to my insecurities and my low self-esteem, I’ve recently joined the keto/banting diet to try and tone my body but that is taking it’s own time. My goal this year is to be healthy, both emotionally, physically and spiritually and that involves me having great skin. I’d really appreciate it if I’d win this hamper, not only because I want to improve my skin but because I live on a student budget so I can’t really afford it.

This will boost my self esteam. Being 47 exercise alone does not help.

I would love to win this product as a Mom of two with so much loose skin, so much cellulite and feeling that I’m never going to look okay naked ever 🙁

Since I turn 40 my body have changed allot my skin really need this product.

Because I’m ten years younger than you but I’m still jealous of your bum!

This would be greaaaat because wow, I’m only 21, and already struggling with cellulite by my thighs and bums. These products would be of help to minimise the appearance and give me confidence in showing off my legs!

After 2 kids & my weight up & down due to health issues, Ive become so concious of my body, especially the thighs & bums, I no longer show these areas even at the beach. I would really like to try these products to get the firmness & smoothness back.

Despite many attempts I am stuck with trying to get rid of stubborn cellulite on my thighs, especially the front from just above the knees and upwards. I have tried brushing religiously and cutting out carbs etc and it will not shift. I have tried Elancyl before and it did make an improvement but I think you really need to use the combination of the above products as well and the massage device, to make it work. I would really love to try this again.

Awesome product! I would love to be able to wear shorts again without feeling self conscious about my dimply thighs. Despite weight loss it is really hard to tone my thighs and make improvement to reduce the cellulite.

Pick me please. I really want the new massage set?

Yes please! I’ve wanted to try these for ages!

Would love to win this set. Really want to improve my dimple thighs.

Love your review, we can be very sure the product works after yourbefore and after photos have proved it.

Wow, this product sounds absolutely amazing. I have a 4 month old and my body really got butchered with my last pregnancy and this beauty will be perfect to help with my skin texture, especially on my tummy, legs and upper thighs. One step closer to getting my body back…

This is a well known product I would love to try it for myself and see a difference I have been to the gym but can’t seem to get rid of the cellulite. It would be truely amazing and my pkeasure to try these wonderful products. ❤❤❤?

I would love to win because I am on my weightloss journey and lost about 17 kg so far and I have terrible cellulite. This would help me become confident enough again to wear my shorts and short dresses that I haven’t worn for the past 6 years.

I’ve never used any cellulite treatment. All my researching has definitely convinced me to try this product. I’m definitely going to either buy it or be the lucky winner!!
