The Situation Abs is a cellulite reduction cream that attempts to use the name of a Jersey Shore star to sell a product. The ingredient list is comical, at best, and the price of $100 for four tubes is insane. There is one ingredient in the formula that works to reduce the look of cellulite and it is the same ingredient used in most anti-cellulite creams. The Situation Abs is not available on an official website and we found no mention of the reality TV star in the product description.

Product Features

We immediately noticed that several ingredients in The Situation Abs are repeated. This could be because the ingredient is added as an individual ingredient and as part of a proprietary ingredient later in the product or because the company has no idea how to list ingredients.

The long list of ingredients you see is relatively normal for a cellulite cream. Most are used to suspend the caffeine and L-carnitine in a cream form. Look at the back of any skin cream and you’ll notice many of the same ingredients.

L-carnitine will not decrease abdominal fat when applied to the skin before a workout. Caffeine will dehydrate the space between fat cells. That space is filled with water. When the area is dehydrated, the fat cells sit closer together causing shrinkage so your abs look tighter. This effect is short-lived and the water will return as will the look of cellulite.

  • The Situation Abs may help soften and smooth skin.
  • There will likely be a tightening effect after using the cream.


  • The price is much more expensive than comparable products.
  • Caffeine works temporarily.
  • The product attempts to increase sales based on the popularity of a reality TV star.


The Situation Abs is not a cream that will instantly work to give you the famous abs of a reality TV star. You could literally take your everyday skin cream and throw in a little pulverized caffeine and likely get the same results for a small fraction of the cost. Stick with diet and exercise to reduce abdominal fat and show off those rock hard abs.
