Longing to be bootylicious? Want a fuller bottom without having to go through expensive and painful surgery? Apex Vitality claims it can solve your problem. The company produces Booty Pop, a lotion they claim can give you the booty you want in just two weeks without surgery.
But is that just too good to be true? Is Booty Pop a dream cream or just another online scam? In this guide, we’ll give you the unbiased truth behind Booty Pop. Learn if Booty Pop’s ingredients can actually deliver their promised results, what Booty Pop reviews say, and why you should be skeptical of this supposedly bootylicious product.
What Is Booty Pop? What Does It Do?
Apex Vitality, the makers of Booty Pop, market their product as a “butt enhancement cream.” Booty Pop has been advertised heavily on Instagram and other social media platforms, with celebrities like Blac Chyna (briefly) endorsing it. By rubbing a quarter-sized amount of the lotion on your derriere twice a day, Booty Pop’s makers claim you can become bootylicious in two weeks without a single surgery.
Specifically Booty Pop claims to:
- Make your bottom bigger
- Reduce wrinkles
- Tone your butt
- Reduce cellulite
- Reduce stretch marks
However, before you go out and buy yourself a bottle of Booty Pop, let’s take a closer look at what it contains and how users feel about it so you can decide whether it’s really worth your money.
What Ingredients Are in Booty Pop?
The Apex Vitality website lists four active ingredients in Booty Pop. Is this the secret formula to making you bootylicious? Not so fast.
Let’s look at each ingredient and the scientific evidence behind it to see how accurate Booty Pop’s promises are.
Booty Pop’s website states that green tea “is well known for its high levels of antioxidants, which fight signs of aging in and below the skin’s surface.”
This is somewhat true. Green tea does contain high levels of antioxidants, but scientific studies of its impact on skin haven’t drawn any firm conclusions so far. Some studies have shown that green tea may reduce the risk of inflammation and certain types of cancer; however, this may be due to the caffeine in the green tea rather than the antioxidants. Additionally, it’s not known yet exactly how much green tea you need to take or how you should take it for it to have an impact. Even though there are all kinds of products available claiming that green tea fights signs of aging, there’s currently very little proof to back that up, so it likely won’t have any impact on your bottom.
The makers of Booty Pop claim that applying soy protein to your skin will help maintain muscle mass and keep your muscles “strong and firm.” While protein is important for maintaining muscle mass, applying protein to your skin doesn’t have any effect on the muscles underneath. If Booty Pop’s claim were true, you’d be able to rub some protein powder into your skin and bulk up without ever needing to hit the gym! So this ingredient won’t deliver the promised results.
Macadamia Seed Oil
On the website, it’s stated that macadamia seed oil “stimulates the pituitary glands to raise hormonal levels [that] boosts the volume of your butt.” If that sentence seems confusing, that’s because it’s pretty much nonsense.
Your pituitary gland (you only have one, despite Booty Pop’s website stating otherwise) does produce some important hormones, and certain hormones can play a role in the appearance of your curves, including the size of your butt. However, there are several glaring errors in this claim:
- There is no research that shows macadamia seed oil has any impact on the pituitary gland.
- Even if it did, it would be difficult for the oil to reach the pituitary if it was only applied topically, rather than ingested.
- Even if the oil did have an impact on hormones, there are many hormones in the body, and there’s no evidence the macadamia seed oil would affect the one(s) needed to make your butt larger.
So this claim is inaccurate as well. Macadamia seed oil is high in essential fatty acids, so applying it to your skin could have moisturizing benefits, but that’s about it.
Booty Pop’s makers included Vitamin E because it “helps create smoother, firmer skin.” Even though there are many skin products that claim Vitamin E will improve the appearance of your skin, there’s not a lot of scientific evidence to back this up.
Some studies have shown that Vitamin E improves the appearance of skin by speeding healing and reducing scars. However, other studies have shown that Vitamin E doesn’t have an impact, and one study found that applying Vitamin E can actually worsen the appearance of scars. So the scientific evidence is inconclusive, and, in any case, most of the skin benefits linked to Vitamin E relate to healing damaged skin, not giving you a bigger booty.
What Do Booty Pop Reviews Say?
Now we know there’s little evidence that Booty Pop’s ingredients will deliver their promised results, but what do actual users of Booty Pop think of the product? In order to see accurate, unbiased reviews of Booty Pop, we’ll be looking at an independent site, specifically Amazon. On Amazon, Booty Pop has an average rating of 2.7 out of 5 stars, which is lower than most other Amazon products.
Here are quotes from some of the most recommended negative Booty Pop reviews:
- “This stuff is decent cellulite moisturizer, but not at all worth the money.”
- “I really didn’t see a difference.”
- “This product was expensive and it didn’t work. This deserves no stars.”
- “This sucks. It’s expensive and it does not do any of what it says it will.”
- “I just noticed skin firming but not an increase in my butt size, it did not give me the butt I was looking to get out of the product.”
Here are some of the more positive Booty Pop reviews:
- “I highly recommend this brand and product. Felt a tingling after first use, I’m assuming it’s the fatty cells”
- “I got it last night I’m sooooo excited I can’t wait to see results”
- “This product is the best!!”
- “Product actually works started to see results within a week”
What can we get out of this information? First, the majority of Booty Pop reviews on Amazon are negative, and those reviewers state that the product made little or no difference. This isn’t surprising based on what we know about Booty Pop’s key ingredients.
Second, the people who gave Booty Pop good reviews often reviewed it before they had seen any results, or they gave a vague review that didn’t give specific reasons as to why they liked the product. Out of dozens of reviews, very few mentioned any significant change after using Booty Pop. So, once again, we see that Booty Pop is an ineffective product that doesn’t deliver on its promises.
How Do You Buy Booty Pop? How Much Does it Cost?
If you decide to purchase Booty Pop, the best way to do so is through Amazon. A month’s supply will cost you about $37.
If you purchase Booty Pop directly from the Booty Pop website, it’ll cost you significantly more. The website doesn’t make it very clear how much the product costs, but if you click on “Terms and Conditions” at the bottom of the page, you can read the fine print. For your first order, you’ll pay $6.98 for shipping and handling, then if after 14 days you haven’t contacted customer service to cancel, you’ll be charged $74.99 for the trial kit you received. You will continue to be charged $84.98 (for the product and s&h) each month until you decide to cancel your subscription.
Summary: Should You Get Booty Pop?
By now, it’s hopefully clear that Apex Vitality’s Booty Pop is closer to a scam than a miracle cream, and it won’t help you achieve your goal of a bigger booty. None of its active ingredients act the way Booty Pop claims they will, and reviews are overwhelmingly negative.
It’s possible that using Booty Pop may improve your bottom’s appearance due to moisturizing effects of some of the ingredients (namely macadamia seed oil). However, you’d likely get similar results at a fraction of the price by using regular lotion.
What it comes down to is that it’s just not possible to drastically change the shape of your body (or part of your body) by simply applying a cream. If you’re interested in getting a bigger booty, there are exercises you can do, such as squats and wall sits, but Booty Pop is not the way to go.
