A few weeks ago I was approached by It Works Independent Distributor Christina Probeyahn at www.skinnywraplife.com about trialling and reviewing the It Works Single Application Wrap here, on Red Lips Red Hair.
In order to replicate the photo perfectly every time, I put on the same bra before each series of pictures. I thought this might show the progress more honestly. I've also maintained some semblance of healthy eating (though this trial did run through my birthday) and gone to Zumba as I always do.
Since I hate my tummy the most, I've chosen to trial it on that particular trouble spot.

What They Claim It Does:
"It uses all natural botanical ingredients to tighten tone and firm any area of the body where you choose to wear it. It is worn for only 45 minutes though it continues to work in your body for 72 hours. It works by penetrating the skin and affecting the fat cell under the surface of the skin causing it to release toxins. You drink water to flush those out. As you release these toxins, the cell shrinks. Other ingredients work to tighten and condition the skin externally. So the cell shrinks, the skin tightens and voila we see results!"
The wrap has a gel on it that penetrates the skin and affecting the fat cell under the surface of the skin causing it to release toxins. You drink water to flush those out. As you release these toxins, the cell shrinks. Other ingredients work to tighten and condition the skin externally. So the cell shrinks, the skin tightens and you see the difference.
So earlier this week I took some before pics, applied the wrap, and let it do its job while watching The Notorious and Hey Ho Lets Go, sipping water all the time.

I noticed that it felt very warm as it worked, but not uncomfortable. In fact, it was a pleasant experience like a heat patch would be. The gel on the application wrap smells lovely and is made from all natural ingredients, so it's not hard to leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour, like I did!
After an hour, I removed the wrap, massaged the rest of the gel in, and then had a look in the mirror. See for yourself.
It's worth saying that I've had 1.5/2ltr of water every day since, spread out evenly over the course of my day, which is from 8am til I go to bed at 11pm.
What I Think:
While it was working I was sceptical, unsure if the wrap was going to do what it claims to be able to. I thought the heat was good, because it really felt like it was doing something, even if I wasn't sure what that something was.
Immediately after, I couldn't see if there was any difference but today, 3 days later, I've lost some of my scepticism. I'm almost sure that I can see some difference. The pictures show it more than I can see myself, but we are all our own worst critics.
I've only used one wrap so far, and I will definitely be using the second wrap in the coming week to see if this progress can be built upon.
I admit I was skeptical, but I think that this wrap lives up to its name... It Works!!
