ACTIDREN Revitalising Leg Gel 150ml RRP £15.99
Black elder extract helps improve micro-circulation and de-congestion of the skin tissue to relieve tired and 'heavy' legs. Rutin (a citrus flavonoid found in a wide variety of plants and fruits) and olive oil prevent and reduce the appearance of redness. Also contains natural cherry, cranberry and grape water, rich in antioxidants, which protect the skin from free radicals. Acticire (a natural, multi-functional active texture agent based on jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower waxes) ensures legs feel comfortable, relaxed and moisturised all day long.

"My legs were instantly soothed by the cooling effect of this cream which was very much welcomed after a long day at work in this heatwave. I noticed a considerable difference in my water retention too - the 'heavy leg feeling' - so can't wait to continue to use this product and see even better results." - Danielle Harvey

ANTI-STRETCH MARKS Repairing and Preventing Cream 150ml RRP £15.99
Centella Asiatica leaf extract helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Scotch thistle extract helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks through a dual action, increasing both the elasticity and moisture levels of the skin, which stimulates the regeneration process. Natural cherry, orange and grape water, rich in antioxidants, improve the well-being of the skin's protective barrier.

"This cream was really moisturising and smelt lovely. After using for the week I didn't notice much of a difference but I'm sure with continued use it wouldwork a treat." - Annie Cannock

BODYLIFT Anti-Cellulite and Lifting Cream 150ml RRP £15.99
Sundews leaf, a carnivorous plant, helps to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Dragon eye extract protects the skin tissues through its antioxidant action and improves skin texture. Black elder extract helps improve micro-circulation and de-congestion of the skin tissue while cherry, cranberry and orange water help protect the skin.

"I've been waging war against my stubborn cellulite for years so I wasn't expecting any miracles. However, this cream is packed with natural ingredients, was non-greasy, easily absorbed and lightly fragranced so you can still use it with your regular body lotions or scent. After just a few days applying it twice daily, dare I say it, but I'm sure my problem areas already feel a smidge smoother and firmer. Goodbye orange peel skin! Not quite, but given time who knows?" - Sarah Reeve

FITNESS Body Contouring Gel 150ml RRP £15.99
Caffeine helps tighten the skin for a more sculpted looking figure. Dragon eye extract protects the skin tissue and reduces fatty deposits. Black elder extract helps improve micro-circulation and de-congestion of the skin tissue while lemon, cranberry and orange water, full of vitamin C, boost the production of collagen, leaving skin smooth and glowing.

"I haven't used the whole tube yet so I can't confirm that it 'shapes, defines and tones' like it claims to but it's a lovely product to apply and over the course of time, i.e. before a wedding or during a honeymoon, it would make you feel pampered and like you were taking good care of yourself. Because it's suitable for vegans, it made me feel like I was smothering nothing but goodness into my skin which would be ideal for brides planning an organic-only skincare regime in the run up to their special day" - Claire Ridley

FLAT TUMMY Reducing and Firming Cream 150ml RRP £15.99
Caffeine helps tighten the skin for a more sculpted looking waistline. Centella Asiatica leaf extract helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin Lemon, cherry and orange water, full of vitamin C, protect and soften the skin while olive oil helps reduce the signs of ageing thanks to its restructuring properties.

"In the interests of fairness, I should say I'm a plus-size woman, so no amount of cream is going to give me a 'flat tummy', so I'm under no illusion that this product is going to work miracles. However, what I will say is that it is a beautiful moisturiser, making the skin on the stomach area silky and soft, with a gorgeous scent of natural orange. And I do believe it made the general area smoother below the surface of the skin, so it is possible that it reduced whatever fat deposits it possibly could. So I'd say, if you're just looking to smooth out uneven areas, give it a try." - Kelly Andrews

PUSH-UP BREAST Toning and Firming Cream 150ml RRP £15.99
Oleoresin, extracted from guggul, an Indian tree, has a re-densifying action which adds volume to the skin. Scotch thistle extract helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks through a dual action, increasing both the elasticity and moisture levels of the skin, which stimulates the regeneration process. Natural cherry, orange and grape water, rich in antioxidants, together with centella asiatica leaf extract, improve the skin's firmness and tone.

"As someone with sensitive skin I always love products with lots of natural ingredients. The e'lifexir Natural Beauty range boasts 99 per cent organic plant and fruit extracts so my skin loved it! The packaging is simple and stylish and looks fab on my shelf. The ingredients target specific areas; the Push-Up Breast cream is super-moisturising and although there wasn't an immediate effect, over time I'm sure it will improve the elasticity of the skin. It smelled so nice I just ended up applying it all over!" - Hannah Faulder

PUSH-UP BUTTOCKS Sculpting Gel 150ml RRP £15.99
Mate and stevia leaf extract help to redefine the look of buttock contours by smoothing the skin. Scotch thistle helps to improve cell renewal and protects collagen, preventing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Black elder extract helps improve micro circulation and de-congestion of the skin tissue, while cherry, cranberry and orange water provide antioxidants and protective benefits to the skin.

"I've been using this product for a week now and my skin already feels smoother. The gel takes a while to absorb and you need to apply it twice daily to see any results. It smells lovely and it's a great alternative to my every day moisturiser." - Melissa Barker
