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.

Christina is having a great year, a new single and a baby on the way. Its no surprise the Diva herself loves EOS lip balm. Its one of my favorites, the scents are amazing and they feel great on. I love the shape of the balm it makes it easy to find, even in the most cluttered handbag. Looks like Christina is using Summer Fruit, the perfect choice for the coming months.

New! Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab

Not sure what happened but my cuticles have been crazy dry lately. Is there anything more annoying or ugly than a hang nail?

Luckily I had a tube of Sally Hansen’s new Cuticle Rehab and it was the perfect time to review. The product is a thick clear gel and the applicator is a really easy to use brush tip. It has a subtle but yummy scent and is really easy to apply.

I like how quickly it absorbs into my skin and it feels great on dry, damaged skin. My cuticles were looking pretty rough but within just a few days use the hangnails were gone and the skin was looking better.

Such an excellent product, I will definitely be using this regularly to keep my nails and cuticles looking good.

Ultimate Moisture with Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask

20140513_102731

My hair has been a bit dull and sad lately. Then I noticed this tub of Monoi Repairing Mask I needed to review still.  I scooped up a dollop and worked through my hair concentrating on the ends. Then I twisted my hair under a shower cap and hopped in a bubble bath.  After a nice 30 minute soak I rinsed my hair and was amazed how smooth it felt, it was untangling just as I rinsed the product out. I let my hair air dry and it is the softest it has been in a very long time. And not only it is soft and smooth but it has bounce again, the mask was able to deep condition my curls without weighing them down. The mask smells absolutely beautiful and leaves my hair smelling amazing.

If you are searching for a hair mask, look no further. This is one of my all time favorites and I only need a small amount to condition all my hair. You might chuckle when you read online reviews about this mask saying “It’s as if Jesus made it himself” but trust me once you try it, you will understand!
