It Works! The ultimate body applicator Review

I will start off by saying I did not think this was going to work at all, but I won it in a giveaway from

It Works {Amy Whiteside}(those facebook quick games can be addicting!) so I decided I would try it and see.  I know several people who are like me and think "yeah right, what a gimmick!"  


I am not a large person to begin with, but I am also not skinny.  I gained lots of weight with both my pregnancies and got impressively large in the belly (so lots of stretchmarks and loose skin afterwards!):
According to the It Works product description:

"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 when applied to the skin.



It continuously hydrates for firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening. See results in 45 minutes."

My experience was less than truly exciting.  For 45 min. I sat in this wrap that felt cool and tingly (it was a very long 45 min.  I kept expecting Bubby to wake up.  Which he did, of course).  All wrapped up:




I have now waited for 3 days as that is how long it says the wrap will continue to work after removed. Here are my results:
After 3 days I went down 2.25" at my belly button area and 1" at my hip area. I also like that my stretch marks are less noticeable and my linea nigra (that dark line that many pregnant women get) is much lighter! I didn't think it would ever go away!  Overall I am very pleased with  my results.  Especially since I really didn't expect it to truly work.  So from one skeptic to the others out there, this product is worth the money :)

Disclaimer: I won this item in a giveaway and asked permission to write and post a review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions are my own and may differ from yours (but this is my blog :P )

How long did the results work for? Or do u still have these results? Just wondering if it's a permanent thing, or if it wears off after a little bit.

Did you nurse while using this? I was concerned bcuz it said that breasting feeding mothers should probably not use it.

Amazing. I've seen this wrap being talked about throughout blogs... but never actually seen any photo's. It's great to see how its worked and it's not "junk". Did the results stay?

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Returning the comment as well as following. Have a wonderful week.

I just did this a couple weeks ago and still have the same measurements. I am EBF my 5 month old still, which is why I only wrapped once. I did not notice him to be more fussy, gassy, or that it affected my milk supply in any way. I did talk with several different distributors about their thoughts and what they had heard about wrapping while BF and decided I would go ahead and try it. I really didn't think it was going to work anyway. :)

Ok. Thanks! :)

Typical results last 2-6 months depending upon your diet and exercise habits. Obviously the more you take care of yourself the longer it will last. Also the wraps help with stretch marks..each time you wrap you get better results. It's been 2 months since my first wrap and I still have the same measurements as well. You can visit my website www.awhiteside.itworks.net if interested in more information or contact me via email. ;)

Kiyomi thank you again for such a wonderful review!

I am a distributor for It Works! and would like to say thank you for giving It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator a try and blogging about your experience! Ladies and gentlemen, this products is nothing short of AMAZING! No product on the market will get you the results from the UBA, and be able to keep it off! While it shrinks fat cells, it's not like the pricey wraps at spas that get rid of water weight. You are recommended to maintain a healthy diet and exercise, but the results of one wrap, if done properly, will last 2-6 months. It's the same results you'll get if you were to hit the gym, and for a pack of 4 for $59, it's going to be hard to find a gym membership with those benefits for that price.

I am the mother of an 11 and a half year old who is currently breastfeeding. I was wrapped and told after the fact that you are not supposed to use the product while nursing. When I asked why the consultant did not know the reason. I also called the toll free number from the website and was still unable to be given an explanation. Can anyone shed some light on this? I was told this is a natural product, but it is evident from the ingredient list that there are many chemicals (alcohols and metals) that are used in the manufacturing process that seem to be unsafe, especially for babies.
