It Works! Review

I was so excited to try the body wrap from Jessica! :) It was packaged nicely, had lots of great information, and pretty clear instructions. I measured myself, then cleansed my skin and placed the wrap on my stomach. I covered myself in saran wrap to secure it, and waited patiently for 45 minutes. :)


Tick tock, tick tock...


I spent a few moments looking at all of the awesome before and after pictures! Talk about motivating. At this point, I was excited!! 





About 50 minutes later (got side-tracked by Ellen), I removed the wrap and measured myself. Not even 1/4 of an inch difference. :( Disappointing, to say the least. Guess I can't skip zumba for the day.


While the website boasts that you WILL lose inches, I wasn't that lucky I guess. My before and after pics are the same, so no need to post them. :) It is possible that after 72 hours I will notice a difference. If I happen to lose any inches, I will update this review right away!


PROS: The wrap smells great, Jessica shipped it very quickly, lots of information included in the packet.


CONS: Expensive, didn't work for me.


Overall: 1 out of 5 stars. Very disappointed and thankful I did not have to pay $89 for 4 wraps as stated in the brochure.

I have tried this product myself and was even conned into spending WAY too much money on them at a Bridal show a few months before my wedding. (Thank goodness it was my matron of honor who spent the money). They did a test on on me for free at the show. She put it one me, wrapped me up (WAY TOO TIGHT!) and sent me off. I came back 30 minutes later and she measure me and supposedly I had lost over 4 inches! But she left me wrapped to measure me. So anyway, we bought them, went home and measured again (with the cling wrap off) and I was the same as the begining measurements, if not bigger. (We sampled a lot of cake at the show) =). Needless to say, I got my package in the mail, did a few days in a row worth and lost NOTHING. I wasn't smart enough to think at the show, "well duh I've lost 4 inches! you've got me wrapped up as tight as a leftover turkey!" I could hardly even breath, no wonder I measured thinner!... To me, I think it's a scam. But that's just my opinion.

Hey! Ok -- I'm leaving a comment because I was super skeptical of the wraps and the whole thing, too! Never thought it was going to work and honestly went into it thinking I was wasting my money. (I have 2 boys under the age of 3, just as a sidenote, and abdominal separation and really bad purple / red stretch marks! Also had issues with weight loss and no matter what I couldn't seem to do it.) That being said I went to this "Wrap Party" and watched the lady measure me --- I made her put the tape measure in front so I could see what she was doing ; ) I was also instructed to drink water and lo and behold after my first wrap I lost 2.25 inches from my middle and lower part of my stomach. AND! my stretch marks were already a light pink. I was seriously so impressed I went around flashing my stomach to friends / family. Even my husband who 1.) wouldn't notice if I dyed my hair pink and 2.) is skeptical of everything -- noticed an improvement! He's the one that gave me the idea to start distributing. Not to mention the fact that I've finally been able to lose weight and my stomach --that I was told I would have to have surgery on to repair the damages from pregnancy -- is almost completely flat! Sooo...I started distributing the products because the worked for me so well! And by the way, I'm reading the comment above and jaw-dropping! Just an FYI if you're wrapped so tightly you can't breathe there's NO WAY that the wrap could absorb into your skin! The saran wrap serves no purpose other than to hold the wrap in place while in public or underneath clothing. Not to dis any other distributors but that was a poor move! If you'd ever like to give the wrap a second whirl -- send me an email livelaughwrap@gmail.com ! I've seen so many people have such improvements that it's disheartening to find someone who didn't absolutely benefit from them! Oh and if you want to see my before and after picture since adding Wraps + Thermofit check out www.facebook.com/LiveLaughWrap ! Have a great day!

Results will vary and you have to drink water. Lots, half your body weight in ounces. Four come in a box for a reason. I would be curious to know how much water was drank by the two who claim scam. I've lost 30 inches since July. April S. 636-299-7549

April said...

That's 636-299-7540!!

bobinog said...

One thing that everyone needs to be aware of - I called the company and said none of their products carry any warranty. I purchased a face cream that made spots on my face slightly peel and I'm just out of luck. Unbelievable!

Well-Read Reviews said...

With all due respect, there is no miracle product that will work for EVERYONE. Otherwise, we'd all be skinny, you know?

I have heard from multiple people, though, that this works incredibly well including from a chemist. The important thing is to understand how it works. It enters the pores and helps break up fatty tissue and flush it through the lymphatic system. If you're not drinking enough water, you won't flush that fat out. Your body is trying to expel a lot of toxins that you have put into your body due to the lifestyle you have chosen of not eating fresh whole foods, drinking plenty of water, and exercising.

Also, there is something called toxic bloat -- when someone has so many toxins in their body (from processed foods, junk foods, sugar, alcohol, cigarettes, etc.) that their skin is trying to expel it and it causes a bloat because it gets trapped. It is recommended that the clients, in that case, continue drinking their water, watch their intake of toxins (to a zero if possible) and try the wrap again in 72 hours. The directions must be followed.

The person above even admitted they ate a lot of cake, and I am pretty sure it wasn't the only toxins she wasn't putting in her body due to the wedding.

The "It Works" is not called "Miracle Wrap" that lets you do whatever you want and still get results. It HELPS you get the results you want but you must understand how it works to utilize it properly.

Balliet said...

I have been using the wraps for a month or so every suday I put one on. I have also been using the Fat Fighters and the Thermofit, I have lost 4 inch off my waist. It is not a ment to do all the work for you. People need to be relistic about products it takes work to accomplish any goal. I feel really good about this product and have no complaint.

Linda said...

This product is to tighten, tone and firm the skin...
It helps in detoxifying fat cells. A side benefit, is USUALLY inch loss and it doesn't occur for everyone, everytime.
I was a skeptic when I tried it. I did not measure, however, I noticed a difference in the c-sec "pooch" within a couple of days. I don't use the wrap often, maybe about 2 times a month. I have lost a pant size or more. It also works great on the neck/chin area.
So, if you're looking for a miracle, good luck, but if you're looking for something that really does give results...this could be something for you to try.
Yes, I am now a distributor, but only because I SAW results and can be honest about the products I represent.

tammy said...

It totally DOES NOT WORK! Then they just say you must've done something wrong or "you're too toxic." REALLY? It's just another expensive gimmick. And before another person blames it on me, I eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water and followed ALL of the instructions. They won't give you your $ back either. Stick to the gym girlfriend's!

christinesmith said...

ya i had signed up and nothing was working either i noticed some ladies i was wrapping were eating well they had their wraps on and not drinking water it does state you CAN loose inches not that you WILL my name is christine smith i was the same as all of you now i have been doing parties and relized sometimes if you try and do them before the 72 hours is up thats a no no only every 72 hours and as well as it usually takes 6-8 of these to get to your goal inch loss some woman are diffrent and it just takes longer really now im back on it and looseing like crazy as well as my costomers

Jenna Wohlers said...

First off for all of you that think this is a scam its not. I've done two wraps so.far this month an have lost a total of 9 inches off my stomach area. it clearly states that resualts will vary an that is because everyone is different ! needless to say drinking as much water as you can is the best way to get the toxins out of your system. Take your weight divide it in half an that is about how many ounces you should be drinking in water in a 24 hr period. now when I measure I take pics of before and after and also when doing the measuring I also use permament marker an draw lines for all three measurements that way I know Im getting the most accurate results I used cling wrap on one an then my second wrap wore a buckle tank that fit tight an that worked as well. now another thing I leave my wrap on for 12 hours rather then taking it off after 45 min. I have seen people bloat a little then loose an I have seen somone not loose any inches till they did the 4th wrap an they sell them in a pack of 4 for a reason I've personally seen about 12 girls loose inches so say what you wantt about it being a scam but know that maybe it didn't work for you for a reason. an also the flushing of toxins makes total sense if you have ever had a full body massage you know that you need to drink water b4 an after your massage because of the toxins needing to b flushed n is about the same minus the massage add the natural ingredients an they do give refunds
Only for products not used

Dingo Warrior said...

Detoxifying products are scams. There's no science behind it. They just want your money. I tried this wrap today. I like the way it makes my skin feel afterwards; however, it stank, it hurt when I used water to wipe off excess lotion, and I feel sick! Do your research on detox before buying into these scams. Luckily, I'm doing my research now after only having spent $25 for a single wrap.

InsaneMum said...

I've been considering trying these wraps but after reading this, I'm glad I didn't. I notice all the women here giving glowing reviews are actually reps for the company lol that's hardly an unbias view. What detoxifies is probably the 15L of water you have to drink a day not the wrap itself.

Krista said...

people..you don't need to buy detox products...if you have a liver that is. God was pretty smart when he made us..built in detox machine! This product is a total scam..if you want to loose weigh and tone...you might want to try a gym, drink water and eat better. Everyone is always looking at the easiest way to get skinny and look great...try some hard work and self control and it's amazing what will happen!

Rhonda said...

I have tried the wrap...Rachel put the wrap on me on Saturday March 24. So far 3 inches from three different areas of the abdomen, so 9 inches total are GONE!!! Guess what I am not a Rep but seriously thinking about becoming one...this product is great and people notice big time as my uniform now fits me proper. YAHOO!!!

Eli said...

My wife tried these wraps a couple of months ago. She is a gym rat, drinks 64 ounces of water a day and eats quite well. At first, she was doing these wraps without telling me and I noticed that she was skinnier around the middle. She had lost about 9 inches at this point. She told me about the company "It Works," and her desire to become a distributor. It made me giggle. The name alone is laughable. However, the results were there with her....and then her friends at work. Her sister even had results and she is someone that is more skeptical than any of you. It is not a magic pill, however has worked on everyone she has wrapped. I won't bad mouth anyone on here that has had a bad experience, however, trying it once and calling it a scam is hardly fair...especially when you need to try it more than once. These products are phenomenal. Give it a chance.

JessicaAnne912 said...

The pictures don't lie, I hadn't tried the wraps and I was rather skeptical myself when i was talked into joining, guess what I don't regret it, It was a great investment. I've now lost a total of 12 inches from my stomach, don't believe me? Look at my personal before and after pics www.facebook.com/jessica.itworks my personal before and afters along with some of my customers are there, so far all but one of my customers has been more than happy with their results, that one customer that wasn't happy is like most of you in this post and puts it down, she too only tried it once, her bestfriend did one the same time she did and loved her results so much that she bought another wrap and then decided to join my team as a distributor. If they didn't work for you the first time I understand not wanting to waste the money on them again but for some people it does take more than one wrap to get noticeable results.

DAR said...

It worked for me and I am not a distributor, a rep, nor any affiliation of ItWorks company in any way whatsoever!! I left mine on all day and lost 10.5 inches...yep..not 2 not 4 but 10.5. I will admit that the first night when I took the wrap off it sisnt feel like I had lost that much but by the 3rd day after...I definitely felt and saw the huge difference!! Everyone is different so I am not doubting that it may not have worked for some. I am simply stating that ItWorks is def not a "scam" lol and also...their facial wrap drastically reduced my lines on my forehead and tightened my pores within one application. So to each his own but it definitely is not a scam and I am definitely not a rep or distributor for the company...just someone who went to a wrap party and bought a wrap and got awesome results.

ZoZi said...

I was thinking of trying these wraps also..Glad I didn't. I did however go to the trouble of checking out one of the reps before and after pictures, Positive that it can't be the same person...Not because of the amazing quick results but because of the inconsistencies between the two bodies. Skin colour, piercings/non piercings, rings/no rings..Skinny arms/fat arms Just to clarify the one time use wrap was used on the stomach so why did her bracelet get tighter = her arms got fatter but stomach got flatter?? Weird haha. I dunno. Any ways thanks ladies glad I didn't waste my money. Guess we should all do it the proper way if were that bothered diet and exercise. :)

Moi said...

Total scam, didn't do a damn thing, did everything right, save your $!!!

Denise Walsh said...

We have been selling the wraps for several years, and they are not meant to be a 'miracle cure' by any means. In fact, they are simply meant to give you a boost, to help you start making better choices in your diet and lifestyle.

I have seen the wraps work, literally thousands of times! :)

Thanks!

Raven Prebe said...

I just want to say that they should of informed you of water bloat, I drink water all day long, that's all I drink. They told me at the wrap party if you tend to drink a lot of water your first measurements might be more, which mine were.
By the time I got home from the party, I was down 3 pounds. It is an amazing product and results do vary from person to person. I still uses the wraps and I'm now trying the New You 3.0 and that is also amazing.
Bottom line is there is no miracle weight loss cure, you have to eat right and exercise, the wraps are to help you detoxify and take the impurities out.

Holli Yarrington said...

Preparation H and Saran wrap will give you the same results (my recruiter for the Army had me do it so I would pass my tapes when I enlisted).

zebramom said...

I signed up for the loyal customer program on May 30th. I ordered the Wraps also. I paid extra for express shipping. Nonetheless, 2 weeks later, still didn't arrive so I called. I was than informed that it was on back order. So I waited...and waited. And a month later, June 28th I noticed I was charged again. So I called the customer service and was informed that my first order had shipped that same day. I was upset at this point since they were suppose to changed the date of when they would be re-charging me. I was nice at this point and let it go anyways. Upon receiving the first shipment and using them, NOTHING!! My husband and I each used two, NOTHING!! Maybe because we already eat well, but these products did nothing. I called the company and they were terribly rude (maybe they know there product does NOT work). They will not allow for me to cancel or be refunded for the products that they still didn't ship. I highly recommend avoiding this scam of a company!!

snobuni08 said...

Has anyone done this on their arms. I've been working out like crazy, eating healthy and drinking lots of water. I have seen results from my hard work BUT I still HATE my upper arms. I can not seem to lose anything there. I just want a tricep, i know its there, its just covered by some padding. So will this product work on my arms???

Jessiebrody said...

Hi! I did my first wrap on Monday, ( its now wednesday)... Still waiting for results... I drink tons of water and green tea everyday.. Workout.. Walk .hike bike sweat, etc.... Have recently lost 20 lbs through hard work and a rigid diet, just want my small ( but still there!) muffin top to go away! A little bloated today no significant change in measurements yet I'm still waiting. I have also been using the sculpting gel for about a week or so ( faithfully, twice a day). I loved the feel and the smell of the wrap loved how my skin felt afterwards too. Kept it on for 45 min. I am going to give it a couple more days and then going to do it again ? I have been eating light and drinking tons of water, so it should do. Something? I want to give it a fair shot, so I will keep posting results to let you all know......

Jessiebrody said...

Well, after no real results from first wrap... I did my second one last night. Drank tons of water and kept wrap on overnight. Got up and took measurements. Very surprised and pleased to have lost an inch or 2 from each of the three measurement locations for a total of 5 inches lost!! Skin looks tighter and feels great ! Not sure if this is just temporary or not.. Will continue to measure over next few days!

Monica said...

I agree. This product does work and most of us distributors ARE distributors BECAUSE It Worked. I got one from a friend, tried it and I lost 3 inches in 10 hours. When I saw my before and after pics, I got excited and became a Distributor BECAUSE of the results. This isn't meant to be used as an alternative to exercising. You still do that, and eat healthy. It's a LIFESTYLE change. Not something you use while eating fatty foods, alcohol, etc.

Monica said...

And as with ANY DIET...if you start to eat poorly and sit on the couch and not move, you're going to gain it back. I don't understand how some people think they can slap on a wrap, not do anything and expect results. Maybe their reps didn't explain the process correctly, I don't know. Sometimes, people just don't listen and do what they want to do and then complain there were no results. Sigh...Sometimes people may have lost inches and they don't even know about it because they don't measure or takes pics either...

melissa said...

I dont see how wrapping body parts makes you lose weight. I dont see how you can have anything in the wrap that actually breaks anything down in your fat either. It just seems very bogus to me. Rather than trying these wraps, I decided to try Bee Pollen over a month ago. If you want something that works, then use the bee pollen. I started on July 19th weighing in at 141.2 and in a size 9 jean. As of today, August 25th I weighed in at 128.2 and in a size 5 jean. I unfortunately never measured myself in the beginning to know actual inches lost :( But I take the bee pollen in the morning, I take half my weight and drink that amount in oz of water, and try to eat atleast 1200 cal. And I havent really altered my eating habits, but I dont think I really ate that bad to begin with. I might have the occasional mcchicken and fry or little debbie cupcakes tho ;) Oh and the only exercise I do is my 5 day work schedule of being a waitress. Either way I am very pleased with the results that I have gotten from taking Bee Pollen. FAR less expensive than this It works product, and guess what..its only 1 product, not 5+ that you are required to take together to get the BEST results. If your curious, I bought my product from
www.Beepollenbyathena.com
Best of luck to everyone in their weight loss goals!!
-Melissa

Thank you for posting this, I have been searching high and low and so far the only reviews I have been seeing are from distributors. There comments are usually really defensive and swear by it, but I have yet to see a regular person have good results. I don't want to risk losing money for something that doesn't work for a company that I don't trust.
**** FOR ANY DISTRIBUTORS OUT THERE WHO WOULD LIKE TO PROVE ME WRONG, SEND ME YOUR PRODUCT AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO REVIEW IT, THAT IS IF IT WORKS LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO.

Crystal Morris said...

The reason it probably didnt work for you guys is because you didnt drink enough water. make sure your skin is clean! try a hot shower first and the wipe the area with witch hazel. it works better than alcohol. ive done three wraps, theyve worked every time, so i decided to become a distributor. they have worked for everyone ive wrapped so far because they followed my instructions! These instructions are given for a reason! :)

Giselle Benites said...

@Melissa, fyi, I just looked up bee pollen by Athena and they have recalled the supplement it seems.

Nicole L said...

As I am sitting her with a wrap currently on my stomach I decided to look up some reviews about these wraps. I know many friends who are distributors and I refuse to purchase $100 worth of 4 wraps so I did purchase them from ebay whether distributors or the company apporove of that or not...I got 4 wraps for $49.00 so I am hoping I get some sort of result...let you all know in a few days!

Teri Baxter said...

It's called nutrition. Those of you who drank half-your body weight in oz... that is the recommended anyway to help rid your body of toxins the natural way! I work for a different health and wellness company focused on nutritional cleansing from the inside and know that our health, fat, and fitness is a result of what the chain reaction we create when we put something in our mouths. Even elite athletes know that they can't eat junk and expect peak performance in their bodies. There are better programs out there that at least give you a guarantee if they don't work for you. I appreciate the reviews here... I won't be wasting my money.

Joe Orton said...

It is kind of hard to guarantee a product when people don't use it correctly. You can't put a wrap on, while your at the drive thru at burger king ordering a double whopper meal and expect it to work. Everything that is made to lose weight or aid in losing weight has other things you have to do with it. I do not use the wraps because I'm not fat or need to lose weight, but they have a bunch of other products that I can say work. For example; the greens, I take them everyday because I am not a huge fan of Vegetables, but it gives me my 8 servings of fruits and vegetables that I need daily. I also use the Ultimate Profit, not chocolate because it tastes horrible, but would recommend the Vanilla because you can mix that with anything. If your going to eat healthy and sit around all day ur gonna stay fat! Get to the gym and lose weight is your best bet!

sammi Roberts said...

You all of you skeptics! One year ago I tried theses wraps and saw no results! I was furious at the company, the distributor and wanted to never see or hear of the company again? I recently met a friend who sells it works and she asked if I would have a party for her. I said sure because I had EVERY intention of having my friends see how these wraps are crap!

My friend came over, she took before pictures, measured then wrapped me i wrapped for 45 mins, then she measured me again and took after pictures. I am a visual person so if I can not actually see the change I will believe your product is crap! So after wrapping and before and after pictures I saw a change? These wraps aren't going to make your muffint disappear just like one trip to the gym is going to make you have a rockin body after one time! These wraps have done something for me after 12 weeks of working out eating healthier and not drinking soda I was at a plateau weight. I am currently wrapping 2 times awake, working out every day and in 3 weeks I lost 10lbs. My 5 yr old doesn't tell me I have a fat belly anymore and I will be in a bikini soon!

You don't have robe a believer but you can go to Facebook.com/wrapyourconfidence and check out my own personal results? My suggestion give it a second try and find a distributor who has taken the time, done the research and can help you with questionsand that that distributor is actually wanting to help you!

Jessica Ryan said...

How do you find a distributor?

KA XIONG said...

I bought one wrap ($25) from my distributor, and I loved it! I'm not a distributor and do not think I will be going that route due to the many life projects I have going on.

I only bought the one to sample. I left the wrap on for 8hours and lost about 4inches all around from it. I was suppose to drink 75oz of water but it was getting late that night so I was only able to take in 48oz before I knocked out.

The morning after, I noticed that my bulgy stomach was not fighting with my jeans, I was able to slip it on comfortably. Yay me! :)I was able to do more effective crunches to really beat that belly fat because my stomach was much flatter than usual.

This product, like any other diet pills, shake, exercise machine is only an aid. Like a GPS that can locate where and how you can get to your destination but YOU will have to drive to get there. Good luck to everyone on their weight loss journey!

Keri Lahaye said...

distributors are really easy to find. alot of us have tried the products and that's why we became distributors. trust me, if it was a scam I wouldn't spend every cent of free money I have re-upping my own personal supplies, let alone the ones for my distribution.

kerianne.myitworks.com

i saw my clearly visable results after my 3rd wrap, i'm totally in love with the products. especially given the fact I have physical limitations due to a difficult child birth of my daughter.

Tiffany Krueger said...

I wanted to try it so bad and just happened to have enough for the 4pack. I was disappointed after not losing any inches my first wrap, but I figured I had already bought the others so I might as well finish using them. By my the end of my forth wrap I lost a total of 10inches and my stretch marks from having 2 boys are almost completely gone. During the 2 week period of doing all this I drank nothing but water. And worked out 1hour every other day (like I had been for close to 3months and had never saw actual results until after the wraps) I am very happy with the wraps and have become a loyal customer and will try more of the other products when I get some extra spending money!!!

Cynthia Temple said...

I am on my 3rd wrap and I have barely seen a difference. I have always drank plenty of water and YES I did drink half my body weight. I am eating normally which is healthy. I have one more wrap to go. I am not a heavyset person, but I do have a gut. Maybe it takes longer on people with bigger stomachs? Don't know. All I know is after this I am cancelling my card and getting a new one so they can't charge me for any more shipments else especially that cancellation fee.

eve purpura said...

I too was a skeptic evenhosted a party, lost 2 inches and saw drastic results from my sisters before and after shots from this party and yep, still a skeptic. Until I received my order... Love the Greens, love the defining gel and did a full wrap cycle and now became a part of this crazy wrap-Kool aid drinking clique and LOVE IT!! This product workes for me and I am proud to sell it! You can order at http//evepurpura.myitworks.com.

Marianne Weber said...

I would like to start off with "I am not a rep for this company."

These wraps are not over the night miracle workers. There are a number of things that determine how they will work for you.

First of all, your water intake. We are supposed to drink half our weight in ounces every day. When you do these wraps, it is imperative that we drink the proper amount of water, or they will not work. Why? Because the wraps help target areas detox. When you detox, you have to FLUSH out the toxins and you do this by drinking lots of water.

Secondly, a full treatment is four wraps, or for good measure, a full month, once a week. It takes time to detox, depending on how you eat, how much you work out, and how much water you drink.

Thirdly, if you are doing this so you don't have to be healthy, it will not work. This is a supplemental approach to helping you lose weight.

You can work out for two years and drink ok amounts of water and see little results. Why? Because toxins get caught up in your fatty cells and lock in place. By detoxing, you are sinking your cells, releasing toxins, and flushing them out. This means, working out can actually target your fatty cells!

When you match effort with these wraps, they work.

frances888 said...

I think we found the miracle... drum roll.... its WATER! Its kind of common sence. The trick isn't the wraps its to drink lots of water. We often don't drink enough but when we spend hard earned chunks of our money and the instructions say drink water better believe were gonna drink water in hopes we didn't waist money. You will even see improvements in skin bc water detoxifies and your skin is a reflection of your inside. So if you treat your inside body well it shows on the out. Don't get caught up in the result. Notice how the results in the comments are 9 10 or 12 and then they say go buy my product or checkout my fb. Its nothing more than brainwashing and karma has a plan for those who prey on insecure women. The gym and tanning oh yeah and lots of water will give u those result in the photos. Not some wrap. Just like the rep said "its a boost" to get you to make healthier choices. So its not the wrap its your choices. Get it?

Samantha said...

I am in no way a rep, I just want to try these and see if they work (: I budgeted out $50 to try these and found I could purchase 3 on eBay for $51, so I went for it.

I currently am not overweight, but I have a little muffin top/belly bulge that I would like to trim down. I already drink over 80oz of water a day, been working out a few times a week, and eating healthy as well. I'm starting my wrap today and will update you later on and again right before I do my next wrap 72 hours from the end of this one.

I have friends that it worked for (they're not reps either) and that it didn't work for, so I know it all depends on the person. I'm skeptical, but will have no problem backing something if it works for me.

Samantha said...

I left it on for two hours and have lost about 2 inches all around so far. Not too bad but I hope it keeps tightening skin and shrinking me lol

Atonja Scott said...

I've used the wraps as a skeptic on myself and when I saw the results I then used the wrap on my son I lost a total so far of 6 1/2 inches and he lost 4 so yes it works and because of that I wanted to help out others in need. I've even given a few away to help out people in need. I became a distributor to be apart of a great product line that helps people acheive goals of weight loss and I love seeing and hearing the stores of those I helped with this product and yes I stand by it because it works. If I can help others feel better about themselves it makes me feel like I'm doing something life changing in the best way and it fills my heart.

I lost 1 inch off my waist and 1 inch off my love handles when I did my 1st wrap. I left it on for 24 hrs.

I lost almost 1 inch off each of my inner thighs when I cut the wrap in half and applied it to both sides, and it hasn't even been 2 days since I took the wraps off! I'd be thrilled if I lost a full inch off of each inner thigh by the 72 hrs! I will keep you updated on the results as I try more spots.

Sorry, I meant that I lost almost an inch off of each thigh when I applied half a wrap on each of my inner thighs. I was careful to measure at the same height on my thighs so that "results" aren't from me measuring a lower area that is already thinner. I should also mention that I'm not a consultant.

I don't believe that it's just drinking more water that flushes the fat out because fat cells don't naturally flush out like that when you drink a lot of water... Fat is stored in fat cells as a secondary energy resource until you have a need to use it, such as when your primary energy reservoirs (carbs) have been used, and your body needs to burn something else (ie. fat) in order to keep you going. There is no other reason for your fat cells to 'open' and be flushed out (without outside assistance by, say, an It Works wrap?)

I dont know how old this forum is, but I'm going to post anyways..

I've tried it works products for 6 months.. I've used,5 boxes of wraps, thermofit, fat fighters, stretch mark cream, defining gel, new you, and it's vital and let me tell it it was the BIGGEST waste of money ever..
I didn't lose inches, my stretch marks were faint for the first 2 months, but have since then turned back to their purply color. I drink close to 5 litres of water a day, so there was no shortage of water intake, I cleaned up my eating habits and even started working out BUT still had nooooo results. I was pissed that I had spent so much money , hoping that any porduct, even just one of the many that I tried would work.. nothing did.. I have since then canceled my auto ship BUT i will not bad mouth the company, I have a friend who just had a baby andafter her 6 weeks waiting she wrapped for the first time.... her results were absolutely amazing, I was kinda jealous that after one wrap she lost so many inches when i used 20 wraps and lost nothing!!! I've wrapped my legs, belly, muffin tops, and nothing... but just because it didnt work for me doesnt mean it doesnt work for others... as I have seen just by her results alone..
dont say its a scam because they are real people with real results, but I wont be purchasing anymore itworks products, and when people ask I will always tell them that it didnt work for me, but I will also tell them that it did work for my friend...

Terrell Bones said...

Well I only tried it to support my friend that supports my business I didn't measure and slept in it ..didn't drank the correct amt of water no did I completely eat right ..I figured it was a scam..after the 48 hour mark there appeared.to be a difference.but I wasn't sure bc I didn't measure but when I woke up at the 72 hour mark ...I was amazed I actually saw a difference and was very pleased w the result ...I didn't even have to wear my spank w my outfit to hold my stomach in..So do t let the negativity that others have discourage U ..everyone has to find what works for them...I'm not a distributor but I'm definitely thinkin about it ...I don't bash anything I let people find out for themselves ..wat works for me may not work for U but I'm not honna bash and down grade a product or try to destroy someones businesa bc It may not have been for me !!!!

Hi, I was very skeptical over this! But I did my first wrap and I didn't leave it for 45 min I left it for 3 hrs lol, just to be sure I had absorved most of the cream. Anyways, I lost 6 inches! Yay! I was super excited .....I loved how everyone was just talking about it and 2 months later I decided to be part of the team and become a distributor myself* now I feel like I'm not so much doing it for the $ but I'm doing it to help out the people,and I love it when I get calls back or text messages and they are super happy telling me that this does work! Hahahaha if you want more info you can reach me I'm in Texas (915)258-8835 but I can still answer any quesions you might have*:)(915)258-8835

Have people thought that the reason the ones pushing to try the product are NOW reps because they liked it so much they decided to invest more time into it and help others? That's what I did! I also tell the people I sign that if they don't truly believe it's helping I will buy their remaining product myself so I can sell to others. I have not had one person that didn't love their results. It's the quickest easiest product out there and I back it 100%. My name is andrea bauer from South Dakota.

I tried the wrap on my belly and my chin for the first time. I lost 4 1/2 inches in total and I immediately signed up as a Distributor that night so I can have 24/7 access to these products. Hell yes I can afford $99.00 and the company sent me a box of (4) which I sold so basically I came into the company for FREE!! So since Jan 2013 at 197lbs, Im now 165, NO GYM but I walk, portion control, use ALL their weight loss products and in 4 months Im making $2000.00 extra a month, havent quit my job and Im NOT losing family time. I don't care what anyone says about the wraps!! There are different results for different people. BUT I work with the wrap not against it and as far as Im concerned I know IT WORKS is not the answer but part of it. So I stay on my healthy grind AS WITH ANY WEIGHT LOSS COMPANY!! People LOVE trashing the company but what I'd like to know is why are so many people coming out with great results? BECAUSE THEY ARE WORKING OUT, EATING RIGHT and if Im not mistaken isnt that what ANY weight loss (WW, Paleo, Adkins etc preaches?) THERE IS NO MIRACLE DRUG or SUPPLEMENT. If people would stop thinking that they are going to WAKE-UP SKINNY, then they can see that with continuous use RESULTS LAST!!!...p.s. LOVIN MY SIZE 10's!!!

I was also conned into buying some products. The Wraps, the Greens and Ultimate Thermofit. Did exactly as directed and a month later. Not one inch lost and not one pound lost. It is a SCAM

Ivette Valentin said...

I saw that a lot of people were saying that the people posting about positive results are all distributors, well I'm not a distributor and want to say that I have actually gone from a size 13 to a 9 from May 7th 2013 to today September 15 2013. I actually won my first wrap on facebook. Soon as I got it in the mail, I read the instructions the distributor sent me along with the wrap and did my first wrap that night. I took the before and after pics just like she told me to, and honestly I didn't see a difference, but my family and friends did. I went ahead and ordered the Skinny Pack which comes with 4 wraps, defining gel, and fat fighters. I started going back to the gym and cut out all sweets and sugary drinks. I was drinking only water at this point. My honey is actually the one that showed me the huge difference when I put on a dress for my cousins wedding. I had worn this dress to another event and when I saw how huge I looked in the pictures from the prior event compared to the wedding pictures I honestly couldn't believe it. I am still working out, eating clean and wrapping. I know some people bought their first wrap expecting to see a huge difference, but people also need to remember that all our bodies are different and we all won't have the same results. My best friend went to a wrap party and lost 10 inches with her first wrap, meanwhile I only lost 3. All I'm saying is give it a shot, before screaming that its a scam. To this day I have nothing negative to say about this company.

Angela said...

I was a huge skeptic of this product, I tried a wrap for $25.00 and didn't see any results. I was still curious after the first wrap and decided to place an order for a box of four! I tried another wrap and lost an inch off my back fat and was sold on the product, I finished a full treatment and lost a pant size! I couldn't have been any happier so I decided to sign up to become a distributor! https://skinnygirls4.myitworks.com/Home

Let me tell ya ladies something...I consider myself to be a pretty smart woman with almost a 4.0 in college and use to be a nurse. I am the skepticle QUEEN. I laughed at my sister and mom when they started buying this stuff.....until I saw their results after 2-3 months. None of them changed their diet or started exercising. Well they started eating healthy and drinking more water anyway. Maybe that might of contributed and maybe everyone does get different results, but i gotta tell ya....these products might have something. I started by buying their Confianza supplement for stress relief. They dont call it "ItWorks" for no reason. Atleast not for me anyway. Anywho, went from that to buying the Greens (They definitely curbed my appetite and I was eating less). Just did these two every morning for about a month. DRINK PLENTY O WATER!!! THEN I finally gave in to those stupid wraps (or so I thought.) Let me tell you there is nothing stupid about them....please keep in mind, these are not gonna make you look like you lost 30 lbs overnight. I did my 4 wraps 1 every 72 hours last month and I literally lost 5 lbs maybe even 3 inches off my stomach. HUGE difference and even my husband wants to use it bc he saw it worked on me. He has a case of the "Man Boobs" and seriously wants to try it. Im not even joking this stuff is awesome if you just want to tone your body and just physically "feel" better. Take it from me ladies, this is the real deal.

I recently tried this wraps and I love them. I didn't measure before or after, I strictly went on pictures. At first I will admit I was disappointed after I took my first wrap off because while I noticed a small difference I expected more. However the disappointment faded rather quickly the next morning when I took my third picture for comparison. The difference was amazing!!! While these are not a replacement for clean eating and busting your butt at the gym they do give you a little bit of motivation when you can immediately see how great you can look. I plan on buying another set of 4 wraps right before my wedding for that little extra confidence boost. However after my results I will def remain a loyal customer. My second order ships tomorrow. So excited to try the defining gel. Thinking or trying Thermofit to boost my workout for my third shipment.

Leah Krutka said...

These products really do work. I does sometimes take a little longer for some people and they are not a solution to losing weight. The wraps are meant to ton, tighten and firm skin and says right on the package can take about 3 days to take full effect. Also, there are 4 wraps in a box for a reason. Some people react differently than others. It is possible that it will take up to 4 wraps to see the results you desire. I personally have done 4 wraps and my dark purple stretch marks from having my child 2 months ago are all but gone! I also have lost 17lbs in one month using the other products that It Works! offers. These products are legit if you choose to use them correctly with diet and moderate exercise like any diet.

ramblingsofalosergirl said...

ok so hi? haha I know people say the wraps didn't work , but I have faith in them , I know its insisted that you should use their defining gel to , so I definitely want to purchase the skinny pack, what I really want to use the wraps for is my upper back? I've lost some weight and now there's just flab.. there and it wont go away? so will this work and can someone give me an email who's a distributor in Illinois? thanks,

Tasha Leclair said...

Well, I found this site because I googled "it works scam". I had utmost confidence that this would work. How could it not with all these great results everyone was having. I signed up as a loyal customer right away to get the discount. I have used 4 wraps in about a month and I'm sad to say no results. I have not been drinking the water that it suggests and I guess that's really important andi understand why. It makes sense that if in order for the toxins to be flushed from your system you must drink plenty of water. I do believe this product can work tho. Maybe it doesn't work for everyone. I'm going to keep at it because I just received my second shipment. I'm going to try it in a different area this time and make sure I drink plenty of water.

Brandy Duke said...

I've done 2 wraps in the past two weeks, the first time i lost 2.5 inches ( alittle disappointing), but decided to go ahead and try again, and lost 5 inches!! the more water you drink the more you lose! (the first time i drank a 16 oz bottle and the second i drank 2 16 oz bottles) those measurements were immediately after the 45 minutes.

Ninalex said...

I wish I could post the before and after photos I found on two distributor's sites...my job requires me to look at images for the tiniest of details, so when I saw these images the differences immediately jumped out at me! Look closely at the "before and after" the way they are standing, lines in the belly, a tattoo is placed, head is shifted or that the tattoos clearly aren't the same. It's all in the details....nothing is better than the gym, eating clean and drinkig tons if water!

Tessa Rochemont said...

With all due respect, the wraps are sold in a box of 4 for a reason - some people can take up to 4 applications before they see a result. So yes, it is great that you can try one out at a wrap party, etc. but to really get the full results, you do need to do 4 wraps AND drink AT LEAST 8 glasses of water a day.. The product does work!

Okay.
So I'm 20 years old
I take multi vitamins daily, and drink plenty of water.
I never drink soda, only sparkling juice. I usually detox by drinking lemon water, plus I get massages at least 3 times a week.
I was really excited when I saw this product.. especially the before and after and videos I've seen. I'd watch tons on YouTube so I finally decided to get one. Keep in mind I'm already pretty health. I'm slim and look like I have flat stomach, but its jiggly-like. I have some fat/flab and I just wanted it toned up, which is why I bought the wrap. I heard it takes out toxins which is nice, but made me wonder if i'd see results since I already do stuff to detox. My mom kept saying that it wouldn't work on me because I'm already "skinny" or "slim".
Bought it anyways and tried it yesterday. They say to only leave it on for 45 minutes your first time, but I left it for about 8 hours. I put it on after I showered with bar soap. I drank plenty of water and went to the bathroom 4 times. It felt really cool when it was on, I was excited/hopeful, but also a bit doubtful. I finally took it off and I don't see any results. I took pictures and videos of myself to make sure, and I still see no difference. I wanted those "Awesome results in 45 minutes!" that you see in the pictures and videos. But it's only been a total of 12 hours now. I'm going to continue to drink water and see if notice any results. Also I am eating. I read somewhere where a guy distributor said that I can't eat and had to only drink water for 72 hours?? Which is ridiculous if that's true. I hope it's not. I just munched on some turkey jerky. It's all natural, but still. If we aren't allowed to eat then that's terrible.

28 hours still no results...
