For my blog I got the chance to test The Ultimate Body Applicator aka “That Crazy Wrap Thing” from It works – Kim’s Crazy Wrap! Well, I had already seen posts on Instagram about the body wrap, but nobody in my environment had ever tried it. Time to see for myself, does the body wrap really work?
What is the body wrap?
The Body Wrap is a body applicator, a non-woven cloth wrap with a lotion that only contains natural ingredients. I really liked that! You can apply the wrap on every area on your body. For example on your legs (then use one on each leg, for an even result) or your stomach or arms. Where-ever you need them most! Then you let it work for at least 45 minutes, and then you remove the wrap and you massage the lotion from the wrap into your skin. The next 72 hours the lotion tightens, tones and firms your skin! It’s perfect for cellulite or skin that has lost elasticity. You can have results immediately, but for some people the lotion will work in the next 72 hours.
How did I experience the body wrap?
Because it was the first time I wore a body wrap and I didn’t know how my body would react to the ingredients, you can only wear it for 45 minutes. And it’s the best that you put it on after showering, because then all your pores are wide open!
The first time I tried the body wrap it actually felt really funny! I tried it on my stomach and once I applied the wrap, I felt a tingling feeling in my legs and on my skin! It was not annoying or anything, just very different and you notice immediately that the lotion is doing its job! An other thing I liked was the smell of all the natural ingredients, you could tell there was eucalypthusin the lotion! I looooooved it! It kind of gives you the feeling of a spa treatment, but then at home.
Water is the key!
It’s very important that you drink lots of water (half of your body weight in fluid ounces), because it’s the key to see maximum results. Not only when you’re wearing the body wrap but also during the next 72 hours! That’s a bit challenging for me, because I often forget to drink water. But if you start right away with drinking water and you just keep a bottle of water with you all day long, it’s a lot easier!
During the 45 minutes I was kind of obsessed to check if the applicator would stay in place. I wore a tight t-shirt, so the applicator didn’t move at all. A big plus! But if you want to sleep with the body wrap, I recommend that you also get Fab Wrap or another kind of wrap to make sure the applicator doesn’t move.
After 45 minutes I removed the applicator and rubbed the lotion into my skin. I honestly have to say that I didn’t see immediate results. But that’s fine, because for some people the results will show up later. But my skin looked very healthy and smooth! So I kept on drinking water for the next 72 hours, and then measured again…So what happened?
You know that feeling when you wake up and your stomach is really flat? That’s the feeling I kept on heaving the next 72 hours. I really liked that! My skin really looked more toned, smooth and tightened!
For who is the Body Wrap?
If you have a photo shoot or a wedding or you just want to look good at a holiday, I think the body wrap could be a perfect solution! But, you have to remember that it is really important to drink a lot of water and exercise regularly! By eating poorly and not exercising you counteract the results.
Would you recommend the body wrap?
I have worked since I was sixteen in clothing store’s, so I know how many women have problems with their body and not feeling comfortable. I think the Body Wrap really is a good solution to look and feel better in your own skin! At this point I’m also very curious about the stretch mark gel, well maybe in the future I will be able to try it out! It Works! is a very promising brand and affordable too, so I’d say give it a try!
