Missha Hot Burning Body Gel

Burn baby burn with the new Missha Hot Burning Body Gel my dears. Hot Burning Body Gels are pretty damn common in Asia and most all brands make some variation of ’em.

We haven’t quite caught on to the trend here in the US but the idea of them kinda cracks me up. I think Bliss makes a shaping gel of some sort don’t they?

Well for Summer Missha says goodbye to cellulite and hello to firmer skin with their new Hot Burning Body Gel!

Take a peek!

Missha Hot Burning Body Gel is a shaping and firming formula which supposedly smooths fat and cellulite areas on your body. It’s a gel which can be massaged anywhere on skin that you need smoothing. It has a cooling sensation that quickly heats up as you apply. Basically it’s the equivalent of Icy Hot for your cellulite.

Missha recommends using it during your exercise regime to maximize the benefits of the gel. It actually makes me sweat something fierce when I use it during a treadmill session (avoid contact with water one hour after application).

It contains Bitter Orange Extract which gets rid of excess water in the body and caffeine to firm skin while menthol relaxes skin and cools it and Capsaicin heats.

I dunno if my fatty areas are any smoother using it but the idea delights me for some reason. If you have sensitive skin be careful, the experience can be intense.

It’s available now at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    You totally should have had NSFW in the header ;]

    Products that heat up freak me out. I had bad experiences with products that heat up, but that’s a story that is also NSFW!

      lol it wasn’t that bad was it!? ;-D same here…I had a nasty fall in Chicago year or so ago and I applied some sort of bengay to the side my leg and OMG I felt like I was going to itch my skin off!

    I could imagine someone’s co-worker looking over their shoulder or cubicle wall and seeing that image saying “hot burning” with a sexy lady and not understand that it was a beauty product. I know if I was that nosy co-worker I would totally take the perverted route.

    It’s hot! Used it for three weeks, I feel it makes my skin more compact and smooth.

  • lilo

    kinda reminds me of soap and glory new product “sit tight” that works when sitting or something but produces the burning feeling lol

  • B lee

    Do you think the “smoothing” action would have any effect on stretch marks? I’ve never tried a product like this before.
