As you probably remember from Thursday, Jess and I had the opportunity to try It Works! body wraps. Sonya (an It Works! independent distributor) of Peace Love Boot Camp graciously sent us each one to try. Jess decided to use hers on her arms, and lost an inch on each one!
I, of course, received the same information as Jess, and it was very helpful for putting on the wrap and learning more about some of their other products.
I decided to suck it up and do my stomach. I’m going to warn you now that what I’m going to show you is not going to be pretty, but I console myself by reminding myself that my stomach’s going to stop looking like this (thank goodness!).
(Please excuse the awkward photos — my husband kept getting distracted by the dog)

So I put on the wrap. It felt a little cold on my skin, but it was fun. I loved the smell; it had kind of a menthol-y, eucalyptus-y smell to it, which I love. It also had a slight tingle to it, which I enjoyed (I’m a very tactile person, lol). I had Tom (the aforementioned husband) help me wrap my stomach up in saran wrap, then sat down to watch Hart of Dixie (I just started watching it a few days ago — it’s SO good) on Netflix while guzzling down some water (which I continued to do after the wrap was off).

When the time was up, I took off the wrap, and rubbed any cream still on my stomach into my skin. My felt softer (softer like to the touch, not like extra flabby), and smelled awesome, of course.
Here are my results:

Like Jess, it’s not super noticeable in pictures (though I think you can kind of see a small difference from the side), but I lost inches!

Before I started, the largest part of my stomach (wear I put the wrap) measured 46″.
When I was done?
Yup, I lost ONE AND A HALF inches from my stomach! How awesome is that?!?! (And that’s just with one!)
I don’t have 72 hours after pics, because I’ve been sick and haven’t really left the couch, but things are still the same. I had a really great experience with It Works!, and would definitely use them again!

I did not receive monetary compensation for this post. I was given a free wrap for review purposes. All thoughts, opinions, and results are 100% real and my own.
