I have been hearing a lot about It Works! lately and was thrilled when Independent Distributor, Shannon agreed to send me a sample to review for your guys.
With It Works! You can tighten, tone and firm in as little as 45 minutes!
Yup, that’s the claim, and after I heard that It Works had my full attention. However; that’s not the only benefit that It Works claims.
With It Works! you can also improve your skin texture, reduce the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins.
Sign me up, right?
So I tried the Ultimate Body Applicator Wrap in my last attempts to loose some inches before my friend’s wedding this July. The first thing I noticed while unwrapping my wrap from the package was the smell of eucalyptus. It was refreshing and although it sounds like previous reviews that the smell is a hit or miss, I liked it. It was suggested that I sleep with it on over night, for optimal results. So before bed, I placed the wrap on my stomach/hips area wrapped myself in saran wrap (to hold it on place) and for maximum hold I put on the Wink Postpartum Bikini (but Spanx or any cheap sucker-innie-thing from Walmart would work and this isn’t required, I just wanted to make sure it didn’t move). Then I went to bed.
You can feel the gel on the wrap right away. It produces a cooling/tingling feeling. I was really excited to wake up the next morning to see my results.
There were no immediate results.
It wasn’t until my second day when I measured and noticed that I lost 1/2 inch. I drank a lot of water, which is suggested as these wraps help detoxify your body and you want to flush your system. By the end of the week, I gained that 1/2 inch back.
So I took to the internet to read other reviews, and from what I could gather from others was that if you eat like crap and are a little bloated: this will work wonders for you. If you live a general healthy lifestyle, you probably won’t see much change.
I’m not knocking the product, I think if you are salted and carbed up and need a quick fix for an upcoming party: this could work well for you. It is not a permanent result. I think if you want long term results, you need to do the long term deal and eat healthy and exercise whether it’s a simple walk, at home workouts or the gym.
