Review: It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator

ultimate-body-appplicator-wrap-it-works

I recently had the chance to review the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator. After all the buzz I have heard, I was interested to see if it was all hype. Now if you are hoping for some before and afters, I am sorry you are out of luck. After 3 kids the only way I am getting half naked in front of a camera is if you have a margarita water fountain. But I will share with you my personal thoughts. And if you want to see the reults, well bring me a few margaritas.

I received the Ultimate Body Applicator pack with 4 one time use wraps. The wrap is set up for you to choose from multiple areas to firm and tighten. It comes in a sealed pouch and when you open it one side is covered with the special formula. The product itself has a nice herbal smell to it, I found it very refreshing. I chose to work on my stomach and I applied it threw my shirt on and went back to work. Once I applied the wrap I found the product kept it in place pretty well. Granted I work from a home office, so if you are a gymnastics coach maybe you do it in the evening.

After 45 minutes I removed the wrap and rubbed the remaining product into my skin. My skin felt good but I didn’t see any huge changes. I followed with another wrap every 72 hours per the instructions and by wrap three I could definitely see a difference. My skin of my stomach felt much firmer and smoother and it really started to diminish the appearance of my stretch marks. By the time the fourth and final wrap was done I was really happy with the results. My skin on my stomach felt much tighter, no more Santa laugh belly here.

Overall I think this is a great product, it really did help firm and tone my skin. Now this isn’t a miracle product, it won’t turn a beer belly into a six pack in 4 sessions. But if you are working on diet and exercise this is an excellent companion product to help you see the best results from your hard work. With summer swimsuit season coming this is a great product to help make sure you are looking and feeling your best as we start baring more skin.

Bestselling author Emily Liebert writes absorbing novels about the real-life concerns and complexities of women. IT Cosmetics creates game-changing beauty products for confident, independent women. Together, Liebert and IT have collaborated on an exclusive set of products tied to her new book.

 THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP (June 2, 2015)
Three women. Three lives. Three secrets.

On the surface, Sloane has the perfect life—an adoring husband, a precocious daughter, and enough financial security to be a stay-at-home mom. Still, she can’t help but feel as though something—or someone—is missing….

Hillary has a successful career and a solid marriage. The only problem is her inability to conceive. And there’s a very specific reason why….

As the wild-child daughter of old family money, Georgina has never had to accept responsibility for anything. So when she realizes an unexpected life change could tie her down forever, she does exactly what she’s always done: escape.

When these three women unite for a three-week-long summer vacation in beautiful Lake George, New York, even with the idyllic location as their backdrop, the tensions begin to mount. And they quickly discover that no secret can be kept forever….

The products: Mini Hello Lashes (clinically proven 5-in-1 mascara), Mini No Tug Black (waterproof gel eyeliner), and Mini Brow Power (universal eyebrow pencil), are essential eyewear for your summer getaway and they come in a chic black make-up bag. The novel, THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP, is the must-read page-turner of the season. Together, every woman’s tote will be complete for summer.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with ITCosmetics on a set of products tied to the launch of THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP. I’ve had nice success in the past collaborating with brands that organically complement my novels. IT is the perfect partner for this new book because their products are a woman’s best kept beauty secret and my book is all about the secrets women keep.”

A great read and a great beauty collection, what more can a girl ask for? A wonderful collection with everything you need to create your eye look. You can see below the before with no makeup and below after using the liner, mascara and brow pencil. So easy and yet such a dramatic change.

The gel liner is fantastic. This is one swipe below, the color is rich and no tugging to apply. Best part is this liner stays all day. No smudging or fading until I remove it. The mascara wand is great, with the wider tip its easy to grab all the tiny lashes that usually get missed.

Last but not least the brow pencil. The pencil is soft and easy to apply without being too dark. The other end of the pencil has a brush that helps comb your brows and keep them in place.
