A Trio of Body Merry Products

Have you heard of Body Merry skincare products before? They offer natural skincare products that are affordable for any budget. None of Body Merry's products are tested on animals and are made in the USA. I recently had the pleasure to sample a trio of Body Merry products: Stretch Marks & Scars, Celullite Defense and Eye Gel.

I'm in my 50's and have to admit that I do have some spots of cellulite and a few dimples on my thigh areas. I guess it happens even though we ladies hate to admit it sometimes. The Body Merry Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream is just what it says. It's a gel/cream substance which is very lightweight and to me smells like a combination of menthol, green tea and lime, with some spicy cayenne.

Below is a full list of ingredients for the Body Merry Cellulite Defense Gel/Cream:

Organic Herbal Infusion,  Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Sodium Stearate, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Caffeine, Cetyl Alcohol, Menthol, Algae Extract, Camellia Oleifera (Japanese Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Green Tea Lime Fragrance, Organic Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Retinol, Macrocystis Pyrifera (Kelp), Palmaria Palmata (Dulse), Wildcrafted Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Organic Capsicum Annuum var Aannuum (Cayenne), Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot Kernel Oil), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyl Glycerin.

To use I apply a thin layer on my thighs and on some of the lumpy areas. By the way, the scent doesn't last but dissipates after it absorbs into your skin. After I smoothed it on my skin I started to feel a warming and tingling sensation. It's makes you feel like the cream is working on your skin. Since I've been using it I already have noticed a slight firmness in my thigh skin area where I've been using it. I'm not expecting miracles but would have to say so far so good!

Do you have any scars or stretch marks?  As we all know, the years go by and your body changes. Whether it's from giving birth, weight gain or loss, or scars from whatever. I have a few small scars from small wounds over the years, but thankfully do not have any stretch marks (that I can see anyways). It's nice to find a product to help out with these problems, such as the Body Merry Stretch Marks & Scars Cream.

When I opened the jar of cream,  I naturally smelled it to see what it was like. It has a nice fragrance and I could really detect the organic cocoa butter which is very appealing to me.

 Here is a full list of the ingredients for the Body Merry Stretch Marks & Scar Cream:

Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Glyceryl Stearate (Plant Derived), Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Derived), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Butter), Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed Oil), Stearic Acid (Plant Derived), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil,  Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture Extract (Plant Stem Cells), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin,  Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose Oil), Rubus Ideaus (Raspberry Seed Oil), Persea Gratissima (Avocado Oil), Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed Oil), Organic Cannabis Sativus (Hempseed Oil), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Wildcrafted Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Algae Extract, Camellia Oleifera (Japanese Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Isopropyl Palmitate (Palm Oil), Decyl Glucoside (Plant Derived),  Glyceryl Caprylate (Natural Preservative), Sodium Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide (pH Modifier), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit Seed Extract), Ethylhexylglycerin (Preservative), Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Extract (Natural Preservative).

I use Body Merry Stretch Marks & Scars Cream as an all over body cream and love how it makes my skin feel moisturized and smooth after using it. I've been using it at nighttime for a few nights now before I go to bed. I can tell my skin isn't as dry as it was before which is a big plus. I've been using it on a small scar that I have but it's kind of early to see any results as yet, since it's only been a couple of days. With continued use I'm looking for more results.

As I've gotten older, my eyes tend to have dark circles under them from whatever reason. I think allergies play a big part in it.  I'm always using makeup to cover up the dark areas. I also want to try to keep my skin from getting those pesky fine lines. Body Merry's Eye Gel comes in a nice size pump container which is easy to dispense and get the right size amount to apply. This product is great in that it contains so many effective ingredients such as Vitamin C, Matrixyl 3000, Hyaluronic Acid, MSM, Peptides, Plant Stem Cells, Silk Proteins, and Vitamin E. These are known to help diminish dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and bags.

Below is the full list of ingredients for the Body Merry Eye Gel:

Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber Hydrosol), Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Plant Derived Hyaluronic Acid), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3, GlobulariaCordifolia Callus Culture Extract (Plant Stem Cells), Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend (Sodium L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylate, Sodium Lactate, L’Arginine, L-Aspartic Acid, L-Pyrrolidonecarboxylic Acid, Glycine, L-Alanine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Proline, L-threonine, L-Isoleucine, L-Histidine, L-Phenylalanine), d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Wildcrafted Vinca Major (Periwinkle), Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice), Wildcrafted Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright), Organic Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose Oil), Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry Seed Oil), Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Wildcrafted Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Wildcrafted Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion), Wildcrafted Geranium Maculatum (Wild Geranium), Butylene Glycol, Carbomer,  Polysorbate 20, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol.

I've been using the eye gel for a few days in the morning at at night after cleansing my skin. I gently pat it under my eye skin area with my ring finger, making sure to avoid my eye area. It has a nice fresh scent and dries without leaving a sticky feeling. It has a cooling effect on my skin and is nice and soothing. My skin already looks a bit brighter and feels more hydrated. So far I'm liking the eye gel and look forward to more great results.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the skincare products I received from Body Merry. They have great customer service and if you're not satisfied with their products they offer a 90 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

  1. I've never heard of this brand before. That's interesting that you can feel that cream working! I have some scars I could use that cream on, and as tired as I always am, I could use that eye gel too. Thanks for the review.
