Why Susanne Kaufmann's Firming Body Duo Is Worth It

“It almost sounds too good to be true, but this product pair was formulated to firm, tighten, and tone the body in just a month. They don't have to be used together for major results - the serum alone showed a noticeable 13-percent increase in firmness in a 28-day clinical study, while the cream showed 16 percent - but doubling up makes this feel like a full-on spa treatment. The secret sauce in both formulas is the brand's patented Pro Contur complex, a blend of caffeine, tiger grass, and the South American plant boldo to smooth skin, target the breakdown of fat cells, and boost skin metabolism. It also helps stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps detoxify the body and reduce puffiness. If you're looking to try just one product to start, it's all about your textural preferences: the body serum has a light, airy formula that sinks right into the skin, while the rich cream has a luxurious, emollient finish that'll cocoon the skin for hours.”
