Road Test: Nivea's Good-bye Cellulite Regimen

I've made half-hearted attempts with cellulite creams before. I'd slather the back of my thighs as often as I could remember, until the bottle got pushed to the back of my medicine chest or fell behind my dresser. I never saw results, and I didn't really expect to. After all, I was just slapping on some lotion.

But I'm a sucker for a strategy, and that's what drew me to Nivea's Good-bye Cellulite regimen ($16.19). Three products—supplements, gel, and patches—release L-Carnitine into your skin (or your bloodstream), theoretically breaking up fatty deposits and reducing the appearance of cellulite in 30 days. All three products release L-Carnitine (a chemical that occurs naturally in the body), but the different delivery methods make me feel like I have a system in place… a multi-tiered plan of attack.

Of course, a strategic action plan isn't going to help me look good in a bikini, so the real question is: Does it work? In the interest of scientific inquiry, I'm embarking on a 30-day road-test. I'll use all three products as directed, and refrain from engaging in any strenuous exercise or changing my diet (strictly for the sake of the integrity of my research). In 30 days, I'll report back.

In the meantime, you can check out the products at drugstore.com.
