I recently met Meredith, an It Works! Independent Distributor and we have teamed up to provide this review of the It Works! Global Ultimate Body Applicator. Meredith is a giver and would like to give one lucky Learn Like A Mom reader one Ultimate Body Applicator AND a 3-day Sample of Greens on the Go in Berry Flavor!
I was given free product for this review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own and based on my own experience.
Before applying my first body applicator, I took Meredith’s advice and watched this video tutorial on how to properly apply the Ultimate Body Applicator. I also took the time to read these tips to maximize your wrapping results. (By the way, you can find Meredith’s Thompson Fit Wraps on Facebook!) And, of course, I read the directions on the packaging itself. Then I followed everything I was told to do!
Review of It Works! Global Ultimate Body Applicator
Like I said, I followed the directions, by exfoliating the area I intended to wrap and then allowing it to dry. I took my before pictures and measurements. I even marked my stomach in the three areas with a sharpie so I could measure in the exact same place over the following days. However, after the application was removed, so were the markings. I still managed to measure in the correct spots. I will refer to them as “upper,” “belly button,” and “lower” and all measurements are in inches.
I only wore the wrap for 45 minutes as directed. They suggest this to test your skin’s sensitivity. I have sensitive skin and had no issues at all! I also drank over 90 ounces of water each day for three days after using the wrap. They suggest you drink half your body weight in ounces of water, so I went above and beyond half to maximize my results. I don’t eat greasy or fried food all that much, so I didn’t have to watch that.
Now, on to the pictures and measurements. Although I have to say that It Works! Global does not guarantee inches lost. I had just met three people that swore they lost inches when using the wraps, so I was going to document it for you!
My original measurements were: Upper: 36, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40.5
After 24 hours, they were: Upper 36, Belly Button: 39, Lower: 40
After 48 hours, they were: Upper 36, Belly Button: 39, Lower: 40.25
After 72 hours, they were: Upper 36.5, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40
So, as you can see…I didn’t lose any inches when using the wrap once for 45 minutes.
Let’s see if there was a difference when I used one wrap every 72 hours and used 4 wraps total.
Original measurements: Upper 35.75, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40.5
Measurements at 2nd application: Upper 36, Belly Button: 38.5, Lower: 39.5
Measurements at 3rd application: Upper 36, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40.5
Measurements at 4th application: Upper 35.5, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40.5
Measurements 72 hours after 4th application: Upper 35.5, Belly Button: 39.5, Lower: 40.5
So even with a little fluctuation in measurements, the It Works! Global Ultimate Body Applicator didn’t take any inches off my midsection.
What about skin tightening or reduction in stretch marks? I didn’t notice any difference.
Was there anything I liked about the wrap? Yes. I could feel the ingredients moisturizing my skin. I liked the tingling feeling of hydration. (Note: You should not burn when applying the wrap. You can tingle, but don’t burn and don’t sweat.)
Would I recommend the wrap? Sure. I didn’t see results, but like I said, I met three people that swore by them. I don’t know what their diets and drinking habits were before or while applying the wrap, but they said they noticed significant differences. I tend to think that results depend a lot on exercise and diet habits…much like any program seeking to make a physical difference for you.
I can say that I like the It Works! Global Greens and Fat Fighter. I also like that they have products made from natural ingredients. I encourage you to visit Meredith’s Distributor Site and check out all the products It Works! Global has to offer. There’s likely something you’d be interested in.
