Eric was kind enough to send me a couple of bottles of LipoBURN to try. Started using 23 October, and finished yesterday...
What is it?
* Decrease cellulite
* Burn subcutaneous fat, even at rest
* Lower cortisol
* Spot reduce fat loss

Spreadability: 7/10. LipoBURN spreads over the skin and mixes into it very easily. However, the last few days of each bottle, it did NOT rub IN very well, but left a white residue that had to be rubbed vigorously with my body moistorizer to get it in properly.
Decrease Cellulite: 8/10. I don't have a lot of cellulite to lose. However, there WAS a noticeable difference in LOSS of it on my hamstrings over the period that I used LipoBURN.
Spot Reduce Fat Loss: 7/10. Over the time that I have been using LipoBURN, my chest, deltoids, arms, and midsection are the areas where fat loss is most NOTICEABLE on observation (Note that I didn't wash my hands between LipoBURN and moistorizer application, which may have had some effect on upper body). Skinfold measurements taken pre and post-LipoBURN indicate that I lost bodyfat (BF) from all over: Pre: body composition -12.8% BF, triceps - 10.3mm, subscapular - 7.8mm, biceps - 6.9mm, iliac crest - 20.2mm, supraspinale - 8.6mm, abdominal - 15.0mm, front thigh - 9.7mm, medial calf - 8.4mm; post: body composition - 10% BF (-2.8% BF), triceps - 6.0mm (-4.3mm), subscapular - 7.0mm (-0.8mm), biceps - 2.5mm (-4.4mm), iliac crest - 6.5mm (-13.7mm), supraspinale - 6.0mm (-6.6mm), abdominal - 10.5mm (-5.5mm), front thigh - 7.0mm (-2.7mm), medial calf - 5.0mm (-3.4mm); with the most fat loss occurring from my iliac crest (but it was also the area where I had the most BF to begin with). I also lost in total 3cm, 8cm, and 3cm, from my waist, hips/gluteals, and thighs (1 cm distal from the gluteal line) repectively, from beginning to end of my run of LipoBURN. These results cannot be solely attributed to the LipoBURN, though, as I was using both Hot-Rox Extreme and Lean Xtreme at the same time; all of which would have had a MULTIfactoral effect on my body composition.
Lower Cortisol: N/A. Midsection has gotten flatter since using this, but cannot attribute that solely to LipoBURN (as mentioned, I was also using Lean Xtreme).
Other Effects: Vascularity after using LipoBURN was awesome (the alcohol in it).
Overall: 7.5/10. "Product efficacy is dependent on proper diet and excercise." My diet is not always 100%, and training has been a struggle to get it done. However, given what my diet has been like, and what I consider to be lack of training, the LipoBURN actually did pretty well, with me losing on average 0.4% BF per week (0.1% BF less than one would EXPECT to lose with ONLY diet (but the CORRECT diet, and NOT binging as I do) and training) over the 7 weeks that the LipoBURN lasted.
Would I use it again? If I had only 1-2% bodyfat left to lose, and my DIET was absolutely 100% correct.
Would I recommend? Generally I would NOT recommend a topical fat loss product. I would recommend making sure that the key component to fat loss - DIET - was targeted at fat loss, and that training was structured appropriately, before I would even consider recommending a fat loss supplement/product (and unless you're relatively lean to begin with and just want to lose that last 1-2% BF, then I wouldn't recommend at all). But, in saying that, if diet and exercise are right, then just that little something extra can be recommended.
