'It Works' Wraps.

I'm sure most of you have seen the 'It Works' reps by now, they are all over facebook and other networking sites. After seeing quite a few pictures of the 'before' and 'after' photos I was intrigued and I signed up and bought a 4pack of wraps. I was really excited to try them out and I convinced my boyfriend to do one with me.

The claim is that in 45 minutes you will lose inches. The wraps have what my boyfriend called a 'burning' sensation, but was more 'tingling' then burning. It is like when you use an icy hot patch, and it smells almost exactly like Vicks VapoRub, which I didn't mind at all, I love that smell.

We tried the first ones out for the suggested 45minutes, it says for first time wrappers not to go any longer then that. I should also mention that the day before, the day of and the following 72hours we drank AT LEAST 8 glasses of water. The first time we did the wrap we forgot to take measurements but there was zero noticeable difference, even after the 72hours. I chalked it up to the fact that I was bloated because it was 'that time of the month'.

So any ways, we waited about a week and tried again. We drank the required amount of water the day before, the day of and 72hours following the wrap. We left the wraps on for 4 hours this time AND took our measurements! Again, there was no change at all. Not even a half inch difference by the time the 72hours was up.

I don't want to say they are a scam, maybe they do work for SOME people but for me and the boyfriend they didn't work at all and I regret trying them out. I should have bought some shoes instead!

Have you tried the wraps? Did they work for you?


  1. wow! this is the first time I've heard about the wraps...guess I can scratch that off the try list! thanks for the review!

  2. I was intrigued like you! I thought if they really worked as well as claimed, maybe I would even get the rep kit and sell them myself. I ordered one off amazon and a 2nd one off ebay before the other one even got here. I have since used them both. Each wrap took off one inch 9if my measurements were correct. If I hadn't measured I wouldn't have noticed a difference, because looking in the mirror I didn't look visibly thinner or less "flabby." And my jeans still fit the same. So while it did lake a little off, not really enough to make it worth the purchase I think. Maybe I will write a review on my own blog at some point!
