Treating Cellulite by Wearing “Spa Jeans”

Posted on February 1, 2013


We normally talk about skin care products and tips for men and women on this blog, but after reading this today I had to share it with our readers…Skin Care Jeans???? Earlier this week, swank British etailer ASOS and Wrangler jeans launched a unique line called “Spa Denim”. These jeans claim to have built-in moisturizing properties for your skin as well as to help fight that ghastly cellulite. Throw out the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter lotions and in with spa denim!

spa-denim-jeans-wrangler-skin-care-cellulite-treatmentWrangler is offering THREE varying styles in differing waist cuts of low, medium and regular:

1) The Aloe Vera style claims to soothe sensitive skin, with a cooling sensation.

2) The Olive Extract style is a straightforward moisturizing treatment.

3) The third style is no doubt the pair making the most headlines. Called the Smooth Legs style, these claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. “Infused with algae extracts, retinol and caffeine, the style was clinically tested by the Institut Adriant in France, where after four weeks of wearing the jeans for eight hours a day, five days a week over six weeks, 69 per cent of the panel claimed that the appearance of their thighs had improved,” according to an article published by the United Kingdom’s Telegraph.

So how do the jeans work since they have cellulite and moisturization skincare products worked inside the jeans? If you wash them, won’t the aloe vera, retinol, etc. be gone forever? According to Wrangler, the spa jeans treatment lasts up to 67-95 wears, without washing. However, if you decide to launder them like normal people since they will get dirty, one can purchase “refill sprays” to refresh the spa treatment on the inside of the jeans.

Interesting concept but do these jeans really fight cellulite and provide a denim spa-like treatment? Dermatologists who we have interviewed all say NO. It’s just a marketing gimic and a very catchy one indeed. But priced at $136 a pair, these spa denim might be worth trying out since True Religion and J Brand jeans cost significantly more.
