Last week, we headed over to the SoHo House in NYC to check out Mama Mio's best-selling skincare solutions — a quartet of creams and serums that aid with tightening, toning, smoothing, and slimming. In other words: They're a personal trainer in bottle form! Well, they help further the benefits of exercise, at least. (There's no magic weight loss solution. Sad face.)
Oh, and speaking of personal trainers, guess who was also at the event: Tracy Anderson — the fitness guru behind Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, and Kim Kardashian's bangin' bods is now the spokeswoman for the skincare line.

After helping us locate our problem flab areas — ahem, not that we really needed any help with that — Anderson acquainted us with Mama Mio's skin care system, pointing out the benefits of each, and the faves she swears by. They were:
Skin Tight Toning Serum, $56: A serum infused with exfoliating papaya enzymes that slough dead skin cells and aid in firming. Anderson loves it so much, she even uses it on her face!
Shrink to Fit Hip & Thigh Cream, $56: This cellulite-blasting serum is set in a moisturizing cream that helps reduce the appearance of cellulite by kick-starting circulation and reducing toxins. Plus, it's got tons of antioxidants — a huge key for combating that dreaded cottage-cheese effect.
Get Waisted Body Shaper, $56: First, can we talk about how hilarious the name is? Okay, moving on... This cream, which is packed with nine fat-fighting ingredients, targets the waistline by reducing puffiness and aiding in lipolysis (the breakdown of fat in fat cells).
Boob Tube Bust & Neck Firmer, $45: Because your girls need lovin' too, Boob Tube is formulated with avocado oil and shea butter to specifically target the delicate skin on your ta-tas, giving your lovelies a little lift, if you get what we mean.
