When they arrived in the mail we both checked out the before and after photos. OH.MY.WORD. Truly remarkable. Real people - Real results. And some with just ONE application. Barbara was generous to offer both Megan and I an It Works! Body Applicator to try out, and we were more than happy to oblige :)
From the website: The Ultimate Body Applicator infused cloth wrap works to tighten, tone and shrink the areas YOU choose in a simple, 45-minute application. Works on tummy, arms, legs, back, and chin. It takes less than 3 minutes to put on. It’s fast. It’s powerful. It’s naturally based, mess-free, and comes with an affordable price tag (just $29). It’s NOT water loss. You are not losing water weight when you use the Ultimate Body Applicator. In fact, it’s better if you drink more water when you use the Ultimate Body Applicator!
It's pretty straight forward (you can watch the video HERE) -wrap the applicator around the chosen area (we both chose our stomachs so measured in 3 spots prior to wrapping) and wrap for a snug fit with saran wrap and wait....45 minutes for first time users (in case of sensitivity). I can't lie - I was tempted to keep it on FOREVER...hoping that the longer it was on, the more inches would be lost. But I decided to follow the instructions. The wrap and herbal *lotion* heats up but it's kind of a warm menthol feeling - pretty nice actually. After the 45 minutes we took the saran and applicator off and rubbed in the excess *lotion*. Then we measured again. Don't forget to drink LOTS of water while you are doing this and after...it helps give the best results. I admit my initial results were probably not as good as they could have been - I think I was a tad bit water-logged. LOL I took the water drinking very seriously ;)
So to start, my measurements were (I can't believe I'm posting this on a public blog *oy* - just remember this body has carried a nearly 9lb baby (my daughter) and a nearly 10 lb baby (my son) so I'd like to think I have an excuse...): Immediately afterwards I measured and those results are in red.
Top: 33 1/2" 33"
Middle: 33" 33"
Bottom: 37" 36 1/2"
So not fabulous, but still some change. I can admit to being a little discourage and seriously hoping for similar results to the photos we were sent. But even still, in 45 minutes, having a total loss of 1" is nothing to complain about. THEN came the morning...and the results are as follows:
So a GRAND total loss of 4 1/2" and I still had 2 more days until it was considered *complete* (it takes 3 days for your full results)!!! I was pretty excited and can only imagine what the results would be like after doing multiple wraps. Can you imagine - a family reunion, school reunion, a vacation, or even a wedding - yours or a friend's. Do one or a few of these in preparation and you can have that little extra boost. Megan, who despite having twins just 2 years after her daughter, doesn't really have a lot to lose...but even still managed to walk away having lost 1" total. Something for everyone! I'd love to try one on my legs and chin too..oh and back, and arms... What it really boils down to is this...I'M SOLD!
Not only was Barbara incredibly generous to offer us each a body applicator to review, but she is also offering one lucky winner the chance to try it as well!!! (Thanks Barbara!)
