Akento Anti-Cellulite Gel: My Opinion

Cellulite is a very common nightmare for both women and men, but especially for us, since up to 98% of women suffer from this condition at some point in our lives.

Undoubtedly, most of us want to get rid of this unsightly nuisance that makes our skin ugly, which in many cases is quite difficult to eliminate . But most of the time the problem is that we don’t use the right products.

Today I’m going to tell you about Akento Cosmetics, an intensive anti-cellulite gel designed to reshape your silhouette and help you say goodbye to orange skin and cellulite.

After using it for a few weeks, I am ready to tell you the results and my opinion of this product. But I can tell you that I am very happy with the results.

The brand also has Hydroalcoholic Gel in stock , an effective product that fights against most bacteria and viruses – also the coronavirus – and leaves the skin soft and hydrated. 

Akento Cosmetics Anti-Cellulite Gel: what it is and how it works

It is an innovative beauty treatment that combats established cellulite, smoothing and renewing the skin. The gel is nutritious and highly concentrated, rich in active ingredients that promote lipolysis , that is, the breakdown of fats by enzymes called lipases.

It also contains ingredients that improve microcirculation , that is, the movement of blood through small blood vessels to keep up with lipolysis and remove unwanted toxins from the tissues themselves.

Although it may take several weeks for the product to improve the appearance of cellulite, it begins to improve skin hydration and firmness from day one.

It is a totally safe anti-cellulite (even for pregnant women) that uses natural ingredients and tries to avoid any harmful compounds.

This is one of his maxims, and I am calmer knowing that what I am putting on my skin will not harm me in other ways.


It contains some unique ingredients, such as red vine extract and red algae extract that are rarely seen in anti-cellulite creams.

It also has classic active ingredients for treating cellulite, such as caffeine or L-carnitine. Altogether it is a great formulation that works perfectly to fight against dimples and orange peel skin.

*Ingredients from organic farming

Akento offers a compelling formulation to support claims that it can win the fight against cellulite by increasing skin hydration and firmness, as well as reducing the visible effects of cellulite.

One of the key components is Caffeine , a well-known ingredient for fighting cellulite.

It encourages our bodies to produce more catecholamines (the geek name for molecules like adrenaline), which start the cascade of molecules to activate lipases that break down fat.

At the same time, these catecholamines block the receptors involved in the accumulation of fat and stimulate the lymphatic drainage systems that eliminate unwanted fat cells (among other things).

A very busy molecule. Caffeine is effective because it is so good at penetrating the skin and gets where it needs to be to make all of these things happen.

The L-Carnitine is another asset with ample evidence that affects the life cycle of fat cells, guaranteeing transport to promote the activity of lipolysis, which supports the reduction of adipocytes, and therefore the dimples.

The extract of Corallina officinalis is undoubtedly one of the most interesting ingredients to treat cellulite, it acts in two phases. On the one hand, in the morning it helps promote lipolysis, while at night it prevents fat from being stored and stimulates collagen synthesis.

The extract of Red Vine favors the microcirculation to strengthen capillaries and stimulate the circulation, and we have seen the importance of good circulation to eliminate cellulite. And Glycerin is a reliable moisturizer that ensures skin is hydrated and more elastic.

Texture and aroma

It has a nice and slippery touch, as it is more of a gel than a cream. This consistency makes it absorb more quickly than thick creams; After a few seconds, your skin will be almost completely dry, ready to get dressed.

And I quite like the smell of it. It’s not heavy, but it doesn’t smell like medicine either, like other cosmetics that want to completely omit the scent.


It should be used twice a day in problem areas (I apply it to the belly, hips, thighs and buttocks), accompanied by a gentle massage to penetrate better. It doesn’t take long to apply, and it absorbs quickly.

Microcirculation (circulation in the small blood vessels of the tissues) is of great importance in the fight against cellulite.

Therefore, to obtain the best results, it is recommended to massage the product with circular movements.

This is important, as applying pressure and massaging the area will help stimulate the skin and increase blood flow, making it an important first step in getting rid of cellulite.

It is important to use it often, that is to say every day without fail, since perseverance is the key to improving this condition.

For what type of skin is it indicated?

For all skins that suffer from cellulite and orange peel skin. It also helps prevent cellulite from building up, making it an excellent option if you don’t have dimples yet and want to keep it that way for a long time.

Packaging and price

The gel is presented in a 200 ml plastic tube, and is priced at € 29.90 . Everything will depend on how extensive the area to be treated is, but the cream spreads a lot, and the value for money is very good.

Does it really work?

Treating cellulite is always difficult. Until now, there is no specific mixture that can cure cellulite, and there are few ingredients that reduce its appearance.

This is not a product that eliminates cellulite by magic, but it can help you reduce its appearance and the depth of the dimples .

Its assets are very successful, and they are focused on acting directly at the root of the problem . Therefore, although the first days you do not see any change, over time (which depends on each person) you will begin to see results.

In my case, after two weeks I began to see how the roughness was less noticeable, just like the dimples . But the most notable change occurred from the fourth week, yes, with a regular application.

What I loved about this formula is that, unlike other cellulite creams, it is super hydrating . You also start to notice a difference in skin tone and elasticity almost immediately after use.

In the short term, the Akento product does a good job of hydrating the skin and making it feel soft and smooth; and in the long term, you notice that the cellulite you had before has diminished , has vanished (although in my case it has not completely disappeared).

Works? In my case yes, and I would recommend it to all people trying to get rid of cellulite ; But cosmetics is not an exact science, and it may not work in the same way on your skin in particular.

I am not saying that it will not do anything to you, but that the results take longer to notice, or less, who knows.

In addition to cellulite, many of its ingredients are also beneficial for normal skin, which simply needs a little hydration and nutrition, so it can never hurt.

A word of warning: never expect a quick fix to get rid of cellulite. It will be a while before you see any cellulite-defying benefits.
