Cellulite cream

I know it's probably all rubbish, and my cellulite isn't thaaaat bad.. but I've been sucked in. I bought the Nivea cellulite cream tonight and whilst reading reviews (should of done this before buying) I've seen people saying it should be avoided during pregnancy because it can be absorbed , this was about 7 years ago. So am I right in thinking it's out of date advice? I'm pretty paranoid but at the same time surely a cream is ok?

Thanks smile x

What precisely can be absorbed?
What does it say on the bottle?
Maybe save it until after baby arrives?

I'm not sure, the posts just said it can be absorbed into my blood stream. Says nothing on the bottle or box and I've just looked on Niveas website and it says all their products are safe during pregnancy. Hmmm

Depends what's in it. There must be an active ingredient. I think I stopped using a body cream with first pg. vitamin A? Can't remember!

Are you sure it's Nivea? Can't find a cellulite thingy on their website!
