A few weeks ago I received an email from a Belly Charms customer. She asked if I would be interested in trying out an Ultimate Body Applicator AKA Body Wrap. I have seen these all over facebook recently and was very excited to try it. I am going to be honest, I really did not think it was going to work very good.
If you are not familiar with the It Works! products…. they are the “Ultimate Body Applicator.” It’s a site specific, non-invasive wrap that tightens, tones & firms where applied in as little as 45 minutes, with progressive results for the following 72 hours! It also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, & scars. And best of all…it’s ALL natural.“ I am all about all natural things. That sounded great to me.
As some of you know, I have been in the health and fitness industry for 20 years. I have seen everything out there, but I have never tried a body wrap. I run a women’s only fitness boot camp when I am not making jewelry. I teach and/or workout 11 or 12 hours every single week no matter what. ( Yes I am obsessed, but it is my job too and I love it:) I practice what I preach to my clients. I eat healthy, I drink water, I don’t drink soft drinks…. but I still have that extra little layer of loose skin on my stomach that is the result of having 2 babies 13 1/2 months apart. I have had many good friends who are also fitness instructors have tummy tucks after they were finished having children. (Not me) I also just turned 40 which sure does not help in the skin elasticity department.
When I tried my body wrap, I was in a hurry. I took my belly button ring out, of course so everything would be nice and tight when I applied the wrap. I followed the directions. I put it on, wrapped it with a wide ace bandage and sat down at the computer to do some work. I could almost immediately feel a little tingling sensation. To me that was a good sign that something was happening. I then took it off rubbed the excess lotion in, glanced in the mirror at my stomach, put my belly button ring back in and continued to get ready for a school fundraiser event that we had to attend that night. I did not put much more thought into it.
I will confess that I did not follow instructions exactly as I should have. I went to the fundraiser with my husband and drank wine, not water that night- bad!! Just imagine what my results would have been like had I behaved those first 24 hours and totally hydrated myself to flush out the toxins The next morning I pulled up my shirt to check out my stomach and WOW!!! I was totally sold. My loose skin was now tight, very tight. This is something working out just can’t do. It does not fix loose skin I could actually see more definition in my abs. There was less fat over my abs. That was exactly the results I wanted to see. And 24 hours later when I showed my husband my stomach he also said “wow.”
So to answer the question, do the Body Wraps work – ABSOLUTELY. I was so impressed that I put my before and after pictures together, emailed Amanda, told her I wanted to buy some, and then decided I wanted to be a distributor. My boot camp clients will LOVE these. These did for my skin what working out and a good diet can not do. That watermark you see on my before and after pics is also my new website. You are going to be seeing more from It Works, these are awesome!
