Product Review - Épique Beauty Firming Body Cream

Épique Beauty Firming Body Cream

During the 1st week of October, I decided to purchase this Épique Firming Body Cream on Amazon and give it a try.  I read over the reviews and wondered to myself just how true they really were... Then, I saw what sealed the deal for me.. a total 100% money back satisfaction guarantee and that it's made here in the USA!  Two things that are hard to find with a lot of products, especially as of late, beauty products!  In my opinion, if a company can offer such a strong guarantee then they truly believe in and stand by their product(s) and claims.
So, when the product arrived I looked it over, re-read the ingredients and instructions for use.  I also found myself pleasantly surprised at how much there really was.  I know it's 6 oz/180 ml but for some reason, I imagined it would be a smaller container and wouldn't last me very long.  Glad I was mistaken!  :)
The cream itself has the consistency of a thick or non-cheap shampoo.  It's milky white in color and a little goes a long way!  A blueberry sized amount covers my entire back thigh from buttocks to the back of my knee.  It's NOT oily or greasy.  And oh wow, the scent is amazing!  It's like a peppermint stick went and rolled around with some oranges and had this delicious smelling baby right here!  Because of the unique blend of smells, I think it's perfect for all seasons for use.  My husband loves the scent - he actually asked me what new perfume I was using!  Hahaha!

When I apply the cream as directed, it takes a few minutes to fully absorb into my skin and gives a refreshing, cool sensation... I'm guessing that's the Peppermint Leaf Extract!  It's a nice feeling.  :)
As for personal results - I do believe and can see where it's actually doing its intended work vs offering up false hope.  My little thigh dimples are diminishing and my skin feels smoother, firmer and even softer than it did 2 weeks ago.  Mind you, this isn't plastic surgery in a bottle - however, it DOES actually work when you use it and give it time.  Don't look for a miracle in a week, especially if you aren't even willing to use it 2-3 times a day and don't look for it to be like liposuction either.  Remember, unrealistic expectations will lead to zero results and a complete and total disappointment.
