Soap & Glory™ Sit Tight™ Saddlebags+


Soap & Glory™ Sit Tight™ Saddlebags+ Beauty Review

Soap & Glory™ Sit Tight™ Saddlebags+* £16.50


Who here struggles with cellulite? I've had the misfortune of dealing with cellulite since my early teens and even after radically changing my diet and attempting to make exercise a daily occurrence, there hasn't been too much improvement on the cellulite front. It's a constant pain in the rear (and thighs for me) and would be the one area of my body that I would change if I could. So I'm pretty open to trying out any creams or potions that claim to improve the appearance of cellulite and that's where the Soap & Glory™ Sit Tight™ Saddlebags+ comes into the equation.

First of all you might be asking yourself, "what on earth is that contraption on the end of that product?" and trust me, I thought the exact same thing. The microcellu-roller is designed to stimulate the area and improve the appearance of cellulite hotspots. Whilst the product does mention saddlebags in the name, you can also use it on other problem areas of the body. Like most anti-cellulite creams and lotions, you might feel a heating or cooling sensation as the formula itself begins to activate but don't worry at all as this is completely normal. You might feel the odd pinch, just to warn you and I've certainly found that it pinches the bag of my legs quite a bit, which is a little uncomfortable at times but hey, anything in the quest for a cellulite solution eh? There is also a little wheel (which I hope you can see in the photograph) that allows you to lock or unlock the rollerhead to make sure it only dispenses product when you want it to. And my top tip is to store the bottle upside down to allow the product to dispense freely on it's next use.

I've been using this for over a month now and the only major difference that I have noticed is the fact that the areas where I have been applying the Sit Tight™ formula are now softer and more supple but in terms of significant cellulite reduction I've not been blown away... yet. I'm going to continue to keep using this product and fingers crossed I will see some more impressive results in the upcoming months but so far it's just a bit of a let down. This is definitely pretty disappointing considering it's the first Soap & Glory product that I've tried that I haven't instantly loved. But I guess they can't all be winners now can they?

So what do you think of the Sit Tight™ Saddlebags+? Have you tried it out? And if so, what results did you get? Do you have any top tips for combating cellulite? And are there any other alternative products that you would possibly recommend?

  1. I tried the sit tight 4d and wasn't too impressed, although it did make me think that it was working due to the fairly intense tingling, it did very little in the way of actually improving the appearance of my skin. I look forward to seeing how your results develop in the coming weeks!

    1. I was really intrigued by the 4D too so that's a shame that that didn't make too much of a difference either.
      Thanks Sammy! :) I'll be sure to do an update if and when any results start to occur!

  3. With cellulite it doesn't really matter what brand of moisturiser you use, it's all about the 'Massage' of the affected areas, drinking plenty of water, plenty of exercise esp squats! Tinted moisturisers keep the skin soft but help improve the look of cellulite and stretch marks. I swear by The body shop's Coco Butter. Loved the post! : )) x Follow me on http://instagram.com/caledoniankitty + http://Caledoniankitty.blogspot.co.uk (I'll follow back)

    1. Oooh I like the idea of that Cocoa Butter! :) I'll need to look into trying some of that out soon.
      Thank you so much lovely!

  4. From what I have heard these types of products work est along with exercise so ideal to use after a post-work out shower. I think it's a bit of a waste though as they probably do very little themselves and mainly rely on the healthy lifestyle to give noticeable results!

    1. I have a feeling you may well be right Megan! I think that a healthy lifestyle/exercising must be the only way to truly improve the situation, while the creams and lotions might just make the skin softer.

  5. I've not tried this but it's a shame it's not working amazingly! My tips for cellulite is exercise and plenty of water. Squats, lunches and running help mine.

  6. I do love Soap and Glory but I think all cellulite products are a bit questionable - For a lot of people it just is, it's part of their genetic makeup, sadly (I'm one of those people by the way haha!)

    1. I'm the exact same Laura! I really do love Soap & Glory and this is the only product of theirs that I haven't got on with. And as you say, it probably isn't the kind of issue that can be solved by a cream or lotion.
