Mjsred here, and I am gorgeous and I am a grammy! hoping your 4th was as hot are y’all are! I spent part of last week wrestling rattlesnakes in my garden…and no, I can’t grow a thing but I’m okay at picking, LOL! The critters obviously assumed the cool, wet, dirt was their own private “Slip n’ Slide” escape from the heat but trust me, I’m ready for some “anti-aging” at it’s finest right about now, they managed to add a few more visable grey hairs!

I have known about the “Zia” line of nature-based products for years and have tried a few items here and there, mostly from the local “health food” stores: and have found them to be reasonably priced, effective, and a good bargin for this type of product. The company has over 2 decades of experience and honestly, their dedication to customer-service and standards of quality are quite impressive:

“Since 1984, Zia Natural Skincare has been crafting natural skin care products using whole foods, pure essential oils and healing botanicals. From its modest inception in San Francisco to its must-have status in the cosmetic bags of Hollywood starlets and makeup artists, Zia Natural Skincare’s face and body products are coveted by in-the-know beauty insiders from coast to coast. We take tremendous pride in creating products that deliver visible results and in providing outstanding customer service.

At Zia Natural Skincare, our product philosophy is very simple – we create high quality products using synergistic blends of premium, natural ingredients. Each formulation uses a unique blend of vitamins, antioxidants & nutrients that interact and work together to deliver visible results.

Our formulas feature whole foods products, therapeutic-grade essential oils & herbal extracts. Zia Natural Skincare formulations only utilize ingredients that provide a benefit to the skin, and that are not harmful. You will never find harsh chemicals, artificial colors, or artificial fragrances in our products.

Most importantly, our products are designed to be truly beneficial to your skin. They help repair and restore your skin to a state of optimum health, providing you with tangible, lasting results. Our products really work! We are so confident that you will love our products that we offer an unconditional guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will refund your money.”

ing in a world of overly-pretensious/underly concerned companies,right?

So when I received their “Ultimate Firming Body Treatment” to try, I wondered if the contents of this classy-looking tube really could help whip those “I do the damn curls and dips at the gym but I’m still 54” slightly-flappy “Bingo Wings” ( inset visual here) and “other areas” (gratefully nameless) into shape before my class reunion in a couple of weeks?

Worth a try and bonus points that no needles or scalples would be involved.

“Ultimate Body Firming Treatment visibly improves skin’s tone and firmness with a potent blend of caffeine, vitamins and circulation-boosting botanicals. Gotu Kola, horse chestnut and other plant extracts help lift and contour skin, minimizing the appearance of cellulite while firming thighs, upper arms and other areas. Pink grapefruit and marine algae aid detoxification.”

Lovely cool, cream-gel product, smells slightly citrus-y with a good dose of grapefruit…goes on cleanly with no stickiness and spreads easily…okay…so far so good!

Dries quickly and OMG….it really DOES leave those wiggly-bits feeling smoother, tighter, more toned, and just so much better overall!!!

I have been using this for more than a week and am in LOVE with it!!! It’s reasonably priced for the 7 oz. tube and compared to several other similar products I’ve tried, it’s my favorite overall for value and the way it performs! The “tightening” is most obvious immediately after application but the overall smoothness of the areas remains long after!

Now mind you…the curls and dips are still a necessary evil and does anyone ever really love their thighs? I do however think that this product really can help you feel that “things” are firmed up a bit for at least the immediate future and that, my darlins’ is a beautiful thing!

Does Zia keep you looking like a spring chicken!?
