I am finally getting around to posting my review on my experience with the Project It Body Wrap that Jerilee sent me to try. Let me start off by explaining these wraps. These body contouring applicators as they are called, offer a natural solution to tighten, tone, and firm the desired area; helping reduce the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening. With the continued use of more wraps, diet and exercise, you can see results that are reflective of weight loss (inches lost), or body contouring. They are non-woven, cloth wraps that are infused with a natural, powerful, botanically based formula (full list of ingredients are printed in the brochure and wrap packaging).
You can use these body wraps anywhere, anytime. Some areas for suggested use: chin & neck, tummy, upper legs, sides, back, and arms. The wrap itself once applied, feels like a tingling, cool sensation (similar to an icy hot but without the warmth) which lets you know that it is working.
How often can you use these wraps? Applicators can be applied once every 72 hours. The ingredients continue to work for 72 hours after application, so you may see progressive results over this time period. Each applicator is only to be used once.
How long should you wear the wrap? Each wrap should be worn for at least 45 minutes. Because it’s a naturally based product, it is relatively safe to wear longer than 45 minutes if desired. If it’s your first time using the body wrap, they suggest that you only leave it for the recommended 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the wrap’s ingredients. You also need to drink LOTS OF WATER! Half of your body weight in ounces.
My experience: I unfortunately had a severe allergic reaction using the wrap, in all fairness my skin in general is very sensitive and reacts to lots of things which should not be indicative of how the wrap performs for everyone. I checked on the wrap and my skin after the suggested 45 minutes however didn’t notice or feel anything that was off-putting, however I had a delayed reaction and hours later my entire stomach was bright red and itchy and the redness was the outline of where the wrap was.
Because of my allergic reaction, I had to wait about a week before I could take any after pictures and unfortunately didn’t take any pics right after the wrap was removed. In the pictures below, I wore the same clothes to deter any skewed results or illusions of the wrap. What I IMMEDIATELY noticed upon removal of the wrap however, was that my skin looked smoother and firmer, however I did not notice any significant “weight loss” but then again I only was sent one wrap to try, and many women see noticeable results after using 4 or more wraps. My inches around my waist was 29.5″ before and after. I think the after pic looks a bit slimmer and firmer because I also lot the water weight.
CONCLUSION: With ANY body contouring system, wrap, pills, diet regimens, etc. please proceed with caution. Despite my allergic reaction to this product, I still suggest you give body wraps/contouring a try as my personal experience was just my own and products work differently for everyone.
