I'm SO excited for todays blog post ! I had an awesome opportunity to try out the famous 'wraps' aka: Ultimate Body Applicator! My cousin, Ashley Balboa is a distributor for "It Works" & recently contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying a wrap out, my first instinct was YES!
But to be completely honest with you - I have always always always been very skeptical about these wraps! I have seen these on YouTube, on ads online, and on commercials and I always thought "No way!" Well, when the opportunity came my way to finally put it to the test I yes with an open mind!
So, a few days later..this little baby was in my mailbox!
Let me share with you all a bit of information that my cousin shared with me!
- This is NOT a product to help you lose weight...
- This is a 45 min applicator that you can apply basically anywhere on your body - arms, tummy, legs, boobs (what!), back... to hep you tighten and firm.
- You can purchase one wrap alone (from my cousin and her site) OR you can buy a package which contains 4 wraps you can use throughout the month.
-You instantly lose inches (my review will be down below) and within the next 72 hours you still see results (I'm officially a believer now!)
-Expect "ultimate" results with this amazing 45-minute body Applicator! The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results where applied to the skin.
- Tightens, tones, & firms
- Minimizes cellulite appearance
- Improves skin texture & tightness
- Mess-free and simple to use
- Results in as little as 45 minutes
- Progressive results over 72 hours
- Made with natural ingredients
Let's start the review & check out how this product works!
This is how the product looks once you receive yours in the mail. Very light weight and smells so relaxing. The scent of this product reminds of The Bath & Body Works "sleep" spray - very soothing!
Here it shows you all the places on your body you are able to use it on!
You can only use this applicator one time - & if you would like to use it on your legs all you have to do is cut the wrap down the middle!
Pretty simple huh?
Now for the most important part ....
What supplies will you need to start this process?
& don't worry all these things you will probably have around the house..
-music (I had music playing during this whole process so the time wouldn't feel like it was going by so slow :) )
-LOTS OF WATER
Once you open up your applicator you will instantly smell the soothing scent, don't worry it's not strong at all :)
Also, another thing - have someone help you 'wrap' you up. I had the fiance help me out on that part.
What should you wear?
Well, to be honest I just had my bra on and walked all over the house with just the wrap on and my bra..You can put a shirt over it if you would like but if you are in the comfort of your home might as well be extra comfy since the wrap goes on pretty tight.
What should you do before you apply the applicator?
-Measure yourself! You are supposed to measure 6 inches above your belly button, right on your belly button, and then 6 inches below. While measuring take your sharpie marker and mark on both sides where the measuring tape is that way you will know exactly where to put your measuring tape once you are ready to measure the 'after' part !
Once you open the applicator and figure out what part of your body you would like to use it on slowly place it on your body ( it will be pretty cold ! ) and once you have the wrap on...grab the clear wrap and start wrapping up! I chose to do my stomach. So I stood there with my hands up in the air and Carven was slowly wrapping me up pretty tight.
And then once you are all wrapped up - start drinking your water!
It's really important to drink as much water as you can during this process since you are wrapped pretty tight you don't want to start feeling light headed. Drinking lots of water will help you release all the toxins your stomach as while your wrap is on. You'll leave the wrap on for 45 mins, or longer if you'd like, BUT 45 mins was more than enough for me since we wrapped it pretty tight lol.
While my wrap was on I was just organizing things around the house while drinking my water and the time went by really fast.
Once it was time to take it off (I was so excited) it was time to take it off !
I got my measuring tape and found the sharpie marks on my body and started measuring again, in total I lost 6 inches :) I was very impressed! You honestly DO see a difference not only in inches but the way your stomach feels - it instantly felt more tight. Even before bed I was just touching my stomach thinking "okay, how did that really work!?!?" lol. All in all, I loved it. It made me a believer!
If you are interested in trying out the famous 'It Works' wrap you must contact my fab cousin, Ashley Balboa at Abalboa12@yahoo.com she will inform you on prices and everything else you need to know & check out her site Ashley's Site.
If you have any other questions or concern feel free to contact Ashley at any time and she will get back to you as soon as she can!
If you were skeptical about these wraps before like how I was I highly recommend you trying them out! What I really like is that you are able to try just ONE wrap alone if you like and once you try it out and really like it you can go back and buy the package!
Also, these wraps work well according to your lifestyle. If you are active and watch what you eat you will see even greater results! Hope you girls give it a try and let me know if you decide to try it out, promise you won't be disappointed!
Until next time lovelies!
