I’m not That Girl! I go to the Mary Kay parties, the Creative Memories parties, the Origami Owl parties, the Tupperware parties… and those candle and potpourri-thingy parties. I like the stuff. I buy the stuff (except the candles… those things make my eyes itch). But I don’t sell the stuff. I never sell the stuff! I’m not the girl who can convince you to buy something, and I don’t want to. As soon as someone tries to sign me up as a rep, a team member, a consultant, a whatever… I run! Fast. Far. Away. (After all, running is my thing). I’m not that girl. I am terrible at sales. I don’t want to convince you to buy anything. That’s just not me. Until now. (Kind of).
As you may know, I am going to Florida College of Natural Health to become an LMT. I love it! I’m super excited about it! I love giving massage, receiving massage, learning about massage. Yep, I totally LOVE it! I love being able to help people relax, rejuvenate and feel better! Love, love, love! This term, in my hydrotherapy class, the instructor mentioned that if we are going to work in a spa, we really need to learn to sell the retail. And if we plan on working for ourselves, same thing. We should offer our clients something to take home. Oh no! I want to massage people. I want to make them feel great. I don’t want to sell stuff! Didn’t I just say I don’t sell the stuff? But here’s the thing… That stuff can actually help my clients feel great too. Most people can’t get a massage every day (if you can, I want your life) but they could bring a little spa home with them. The instructor went on to mention essential oils and wraps. It Works wraps… Hey, I’ve tried those!
They smell like the spa. They tighten, firm and tone the skin. I used them on stretch marks (yeah, when you gain 50% of your body weight in 9 months, things can stretch… it happens) and cellulite on my thighs. Up until now I have kept it a secret that I have used these, because I am all about doing it right. No short cuts! You get a good body by working out, and eating right, and taking care of yourself, right? Right! Wait. What? Taking care of yourself. Couldn’t a nice at-home spa style body treatment fall under that category? I think so. Stretch marks and cellulite are not signs of laziness or over-eating or not “doing it right” (what does that even mean?). They happen… even to the most health conscious. There is nothing medically wrong with them, but we all hate having them, don’t we? So if you could easily and affordably reduce or eliminate them, you would, wouldn’t you?
I love It Works because for less money than you’d spend on a spa treatment, and in the comfort of your own home, you can have amazing results. At first, I was totally skeptical. I decided to give the wraps a try anyway because they are affordable, and people I know and trust were getting some pretty incredible results. I like what they did for me, and I’ve seen absolutely amazing effects on other people too. Although for me, it was pretty much just about cellulite and stretch marks, I have seen people lose inches from their waists, thighs, and other parts of their bodies… yes actual inches. In fact that was the part that had me skeptical. You have to work out for that kind of transformation! Well, yes. Of course you should take care of yourself. However, when your body looks great, you feel great, and that gives you extra confidence. Confidence can be a huge motivator to work out and eat right. I feel like these wraps are an excellent beginning to a healthy new lifestyle or added boost the one you already have.
So if it worked for me, it could work for you! It can work for anyone! Because…well… It Works (sorry I had to) This isn’t just water loss we’re talking about. Yes, it is nice to get rid of water retention (add a little lemon to your water, Darling), but those results quickly diminish. They are best within the first 24 hours, then they start to decline. Not these wraps! The results actually increase over time! Then with a healthy lifestyle, they continue. Yes, that healthy lifestyle is still the key. This is not some kind of magic skinny pill. There is no magic skinny pill! Think of it as a jump start to the body you want… a little help with the things that working out can’t help (loose skin, dimply bumps, unsightly stretch marks) and yes… even those extra inches! Plenty of people have lost inches off their waistlines, hips, thighs… wherever…inches that have stayed off with a healthy lifestyle. It is truly amazing!
Want proof? Okay, I’m going to wrap my thighs, and I’ll share my results as I go. But for now, I’ll show you what happened when I tried one facial wrap. When you buy a box, you get four wraps. One is a treat, four is a treatment. Remember that, as you watch what happens. You may some something incredible right away or you may have to do all four to get your results. Results vary. Many people are pleasantly surprised by just one wrap… one. I tried my facial wrap, and this is what I got after just a single wrap.
No, my skin didn’t get lighter (although I think maybe that age spot did), the natural lighting just changed. Look at those three laugh lines (crow’s feet sounds too ugly) by my eye. I used the facial wrap then waited an hour and took another picture. And now after a few days, it looks even better! I am amazed. It Works! It really does. I plan on finishing the treatment, and I will show you what happens as I do.
Want to join me? I would be happy to wrap you (I will be offering some fun specials on my Facebook to local people interested in getting wrapped). I would love to help any and every woman feel great about her body. Especially you mamas, being pregnant and giving birth may have left you uncomfortable with your body. I know it happened to me! If you’ll let me, I would be so happy to help with that! Please message me, if you would like to try these amazing wraps or have any questions. I would be delighted to talk to you about these, and other incredible products from It Works!
So get ready for some of those ever-so-cute before and after photos.
Fine Print: Results not typical. It Works does not work in transforming an adorably wrinkly puppy into and even more adorable baby Aliana. Do not attempt this at home (or anywhere else). Please do not use It Works products on animals (You won’t want to share with your pets anyway… more for you!) Leave the wrinkles on the puppy where they look all cute and kissable and get the smooth gorgeous skin for yourself. Wrap yourself, not your puppy.
Okay, Okay, my befores won’t be this adorable. I’ll be showing some parts of my body that I normally prefer to hide from pictures… because, you know, I’m so perfect and all… with my working out, and my healthy eating, and my runner’s body… (and my careful flaw-concealing photography).
It Works has all kinds of other health and wellness products (and energy drinks! I want the energy drinks!) that I am excited to try. Join me if you like. Or sit back and watch and see what happens. When you see something you like or you’re interested in knowing more about, just ask. Or try it out and see for yourself. Maybe you’re skeptically curious like I was. You’ll never know unless you try. As Isla says, “It’s good to try new things.” I’ll leave you that that piece of wisdom from a 5 year old.
Have you tried these wraps or anything from It Works?
Is there anything you’d like to know more about?
