It Works! Skinny Wraps Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

I decided I’d give “that crazy wrap thing” a try. I’d been seeing posts for it everywhere on social media and was intrigued by the results. Many of the before and after photos showed amazing results and I did a double take on many of them! When Sonya Scanlan, an It Works! Double Diamond Distributor, approached me and asked if I would like to try out a wrap, I said sure. I was open to the idea and curious to see how it would work for me.

My weight has been up and down over the past 15 years since my oldest daughter was born. I’ve been really skinny and then really overweight. Not fun. I’m working on maintaining a healthy lifestyle now, but also want to be able to indulge once in awhile too. I’m in my mid-30s now and I noticed that my metabolism is much slower than even 5 years ago.

My problem areas are my stomach and upper arms. I’m very self-conscious about both areas and they tend to be the parts of my body that gain weight first. Sonya sent me an It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator Body Contouring Wrap to try and I knew exactly where it would go: my stomach.

Before I get into the nitty gritty of my results, first let me give you the “skinny” on the It Works! wraps. They are a non-woven cloth wraps that are infused with botanicals. The wraps works on tightening, toning and firming the area where it’s placed. They also helps to minimize the appearance of cellulite and improve skin texture.

Place the Ultimate Body Applicator (aka Skinny Wrap) wherever you want to see results like your stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs or lower legs.

The Ultimate Body Applicator is not wrap that causes water loss. I always thought they were, but I was wrong. Instead the botanical ingredients work by deeply hydrating and nourishing your skin while reducing cellulite and redefining your body’s contours. They work in as little as 45 minutes! You could put one on and watch an episode of Grey’s Anatomy and take it off when it’s over.

The wraps also have progressive results and will continue to work over the 72 hours after you put use them. After 24 hours, I measured myself again and discovered I’d lost another ½ inch. It’s recommended you only use one Ultimate Body Applicator once every 72 hours. You also don’t re-use the wraps. Throw it away once you’ve used it.

The image below is Sonya’s results and as you can see, they are drastic! I couldn’t get over the difference. This image shows her before and after using 8 skinny wraps, ThermoFit, FatFighter and Defining Gel.


I had the one skinny wrap to try and I used it on my stomach area. Since it was my first time, I only kept it on for 45 minutes (the minimum time).  I have sensitive skin so I wanted to see how I would react to it. The maximum you can wear the wrap is 8 hours and Sonya says that most people wear it for 3 to 4 hours. If I were to use one again, I would go a bit longer since the wrap didn’t bother my skin at all.

The lotion side of the wrap goes on your skin and I smoothed it down and held it firmly in place by wearing a tighter fitting t-shirt. It stayed on fine for me and I didn’t feel it moving around. After about 20 minutes, I started feeling a cold tingling that reminded me a bit like a muscle rub feels. It wasn’t an unpleasant sensation at all- just different! I was hoping that meant the wrap was working for me.

At the 45 minute mark, I removed the wrap and rubbed the excess lotion into my skin. Then I looked in the mirror and was shocked. My stomach was visibly smaller. I wanted to make sure so I measured myself again and saw that I’d lost just over 1 inch. I would love to see what would happen if I was able to use the four wraps that come in the Ultimate Body Applicator pack. The results from just one skinny wrap were impressive to me.

I can’t believe I’m showing you this picture, but I wanted you to see my results.

I liked that the wraps were so easy to use, mess-free, and that I was able to see results with just one use.

It Works! Global offers more than just wraps. They also carry many other health, wellness and anti-aging products. They are also recognized as the world’s first naturally based body contouring line that delivers maximum tightening, toning and firming results in just 45 minutes and all without ever leaving your house! I also tried a sample of the their Greens Berry drink powder which was surprisingly good! It has 8+ servings of fruits and veggies + a blend of herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods. I wouldn’t mind drinking a glass of it everyday. It’s one of the better greens drinks that I’ve tried over the years.
