I researched over 20 topical creams marketed as fat-burning, anti-cellulite, workout enhancers, slimming, & sweat creams.

In this review I’ll feature the 5 products that currently have the highest buyers’ ratings & owner satisfaction scores.

We’ll look at their ingredients and what they’re supposed to do — whether it’s to burn belly fat, smooth & tighten dimply cellulite skin, or increase your workout sweat.

And we’ll hear what the manufacturers & the buyers have to say about each of these products too.

Finally, I’ll also list some of the other fat burning cream products whose buyer ratings weren’t quite good enough to get them onto my Top 5 list – just so you’re aware of who they are.

M3 Naturals Anti Cellulite

4.5  85%  –  40,000+ online reviews

This is the highest-rated and best-selling massage oil on Amazon, largely because of its anti-cellulite and skin tightening properties.

Except for the fragrance in it, M3 Naturals Anti-cellulite oil is 100% natural and includes collagen, a protein that is a big part of skin’s structure. (1)


What the manufacturer says:

  • Treats stretch marks
  • Helps break down fat cells by releasing fatty acids into the bloodstream

Hot Cream Cellulite Treatment

4.1⭐  74%  –  46,000+ online reviews

Made mostly from natural sources like plant oils & extracts, this is a combo of a sweat cream & an anti-cellulite cream with skin conditioners thrown in the mix too.


What the manufacturer says:

* Their firming formula will prevent loose saggy skin as you lose weight & has “scar removal properties”.

* “Our formula ensures your body to burn fat while limiting cellulite & strengthening your skin.”

* They use fruit to boost collagen & calendula to decrease lines & wrinkles.



Here’s the ingredients list:

Honeydew Hot Cream Cellulite Treatment ingredients list- fat burning cream - heydayDO image


*Main ingredient is aloe vera – which provides many benefits for the skin, mostly along the soothing lines. (9)

*Meadowfoam seed oil – has shown in science research to help fatty acids (which can work on breaking down fat cells) penetrate animal skin, but not humans yet. (10)

*Capsicum annum – is red pepper, so there’s where at least some of the heat source the cream has comes from. (11)

RtopR Slimming Cream for Tummy

3.9⭐  68%  –  4,900+ online reviews

The manufacturer claims it’s a “slimming cream (&) a fat burner for the tummy and waist. It works by heating up where you apply it to make it easier to sweat for weight loss.”


What the manufacturer says:

* It “uses natural ingredients such as mango and ginger extract as well as centella”.

* Says its a cellulite removal cream too, perhaps due to the centella. (see below)

* Says it will help you lose weight.



Ingredients are not supplied by the manufacturer — never a good sign — with no website or provided way to contact.

No gold star from me for that one.

The product photos supplied to Amazon –the only place they sell this — don’t show the ingredients list like most health products…they lose a point for that one too.

The ones they do provide are mango, ginger, & centella* – presumably as extracts.


* centella – also known as Gotu Kola, it has a long history of use in Chinese & Indian herbal medicine, where its been used to repair skin among other things. (8)

Fat-burning & slimming cream FAQ

Here are answers to a few of the commonly asked questions regarding fat burners, fat-burning creams, & belly fat products.


Do slimming creams really work?

Fat-burning creams work as far as making you sweat goes.

This sweating will cause a temporary loss of water weight. (12)

Slimming creams do not get rid of belly fat however.


I explain this in more detail in my article on Albolene For Weight Loss that you can check out here on heydayDo.

Medical publishing giant Healthline has this to say about fat-burning creams:


“Fat-burning supplements and creams aren’t nearly as effective as they’re marketed to be. In some cases, they can make your fat-burning efforts more difficult.”


What are the best fat burners?

The best fat burners as proven by sports science & nutrition research are:



What is the best product for belly fat?

A pair of adjustable dumbbells and an indestructible portable cardio machine put to use several days per week is a formidable ally in the war against belly fat.
