Review and Giveaway: Wrap from Holly’s Skinny Wraps

Congratulations to BARBARA J! You have won a free wrap! Please reply to the email with your address so Holly can send your wrap or meet with you!

 

Since March, I’ve lost 20 pounds. I’m excited to wear a single digit clothing size again, feel healthier, and look like I did in my early twenties. . .well, with a twist.

My twenty-something stomach was flat and bikini ready at a moment’s notice. My post-baby belly is not.

Be nice. . .this post contains pictures of my tummy. You’ve been warned.

Before I scare you away, stick around to hear about a product I was promised would refine my trouble spots. Have you heard of that “Crazy Wrap Thing”? I did, and I was skeptical. When Holly from Holly’s Skinny Wraps (a distributor for “It Works!”) contacted me about getting “wrapped”, I finally gave in. What did I have to lose? (Hopefully, some loose skin!)

MYTHS: Many people have misconceptions about this “wrap thing”. I truly thought Holly would rub some gel on my skin, and then put Saran Wrap around me. (She does use Saran Wrap to keep the body applicator in place, but that’s the only thing it’s used for. The applicator is not made of cling wrap!) I also thought the wrap would possibly work because of water loss. Nope! As you will find out, drinking tons of water (always) is key to the wrap working!

Here’s what it IS. . .

The wrap is a non-woven cloth that is infused with a great smelling gel substance designed to tighten, tone, and firm skin. The scent (and tingle) reminded me of a mild Vick’s Vapor Rub. The wrap is designed break up toxins and flush them out of your body.

TIP #1: Before wrapping, it’s important to have showered, have clean skin, and not use lotion for best results. Drinking a lot of water is always good for your health but especially 48 hours before and the first 72 hours after your wrap.

TIP #2: Take before pictures, as painful as it may be. Also, take your measurements! I completely forgot to measure my stomach area. I wish I would have to know more accurate results.

Applying the wrap is really simple. Holly applied mine to my stomach for me, but it can easily be done yourself. The applicator will stay on, but using Saran Wrap is helpful to keep it securely in place so you can go about your day. I was able to take care of my daughter and pick up the house while wearing the applicator.

“It Works!” states that you can see results in as little as 45 minutes with more drastic results after 72 hours. You can leave the wrap on for up to eight hours (even overnight). I left mine on for about two and a half hours.

When I took off the wrap, I did as Holly recommended and rubbed in the remaining gel. I waited to shower until that evening so the rest of the gel could do its job.

Here are my results after I took off the applicator (that evening).

Warning. . .here come the belly pictures. . .

Not too bad. I wasn’t expecting a six pack, of course! I did see a little toning in the front view of my stomach. (Excuse the different angles/cameras. Holly took the first photos; my husband took the later pics.)

Seventy two hours later, I took another set of pictures. These show before the applicator and the three days post applicator.

I did see some difference for just ONE wrap! I have to say, despite being skeptical, I am glad I took a chance with “It Works”! I know wrapping is no substitute for diet and exercise. In fact, customers are advised to eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water. In order for the wrap to work effectively, you should drink half your body weight in ounces per day. (For example, say I weigh 100 lbs.- ha,ha- I should drink 50 oz. of water a day for the next three days.)

I drank a good amount of water (maybe not quite my amount) over the next few days, but may have had a little ice cream as well. . .it still worked. For best results, do as your distributor tells you. They know what they are talking about! I still see the results, and my wrap was almost two weeks ago!

    I’ve always heard that the results gained from this are only temporary. Did you notice this? Just curious…I don’t know anyone that has actually used it.

      Here is the answer from “ItWorks!” (Source: hollyskinnywraps.com)

      How long do the results last from the Ultimate Body Applicator?
      The results you see from the Ultimate Body Applicator are not temporary, as you may have experienced or heard about with many body wraps that simply cause water loss. The Ultimate Body Applicator helps tighten, tone, and firm in a manner that produces lasting results—without water loss.

      As is true with any weight loss or body slimming, you can reverse the results you see from the Ultimate Body Applicator with poor eating habits and lack of exercise. This is why we say, depending on your eating habits and level of daily activity, you can expect your results to last approximately anywhere from 2 – 6 months.

    The wrap looks interesting! Mostly I want to say congrats on losing 20 pounds! That’s awesome! And yes, post-baby bellies are not quite the same 🙂 But truly they’re better. My 7yo pats my belly and I say, you gave me that kiddo!

    I am entering though I’m not going to use it until after baby if I win it. In fact, I may wait on it until after I lose some significant wait. And your belly pics weren’t scary. Mine would be, yours aren’t. Maybe it’s just cuz you’re my sister though lol 🙂

      Yes! It’s not recommended for pregnant woman anyway. Regardless of whether or not you win, you could definitely have a party or meet up with Holly post-baby! She is great! Good luck!
