Icy Hot + Saran Wrap

So, this story starts off weird and just gets worse.. bear with me.

I was at a local consignment shop and got to talking with the owner about body wraps. I don’t even know how or why it went there , but whatever. She said she had ordered these wraps that were from Australia or somewhere like that {as in far away lol} and that they had these natural herbs and oils and stuff in them and when you wrap yourself with them you lose inches. She did it and lost like 10 lbs and 6 inches off her waist and thighs. No joke, she really did. She was saying that she was doing it because she had a wedding to go to and wanted to look a little more slender.

Out of the blue this random man says “You know, in the military there are men who use icy hot and saran wrap to lose weight…” We were both like “HUH?!” He went on to say that yes, it is even on their forums and that it’s safe to do.

Of course, I went home and started my frantic Google quest to prove to myself that it has to be this total hidden secret online that no one is talking about because it’s TOP SECRET and only the cool people know about it. So, come to find out– it’s all over the ‘net and lots of people know about it and have tried it. There is a mix of good and bad reviews on the wraps themselves and the ghetto version.

Basically the Icy Hot makes you sweat and the Saran Wrap holds the warmth effect in which makes you sweat more. There were also people who used Prepharation-H and Saran Wrap {which I WILL try next!} If you workout then it will intensify the affects even more. Some people even sleep with the stuff on overnight!

This was weeks ago that I heard about it and everytime I went to the store I forgot to buy Icy Hot. Finally, the other night I remembered to buy it and yesterday I tried it.

It was nothing like the picture above, but I thought it was funny ;) hee hee

OK so it burned like crazy!!! I left it on for 3 hours despite the 1st HOUR it burned. My skin was red…I was sweating in that area a lot even when sitting still. When I unwrapped myself from it I literally was red like a sunburn. It didn’t hurt at all but it was bright red. After I showered it all off I was sure nothing had happened.

Well, I am here to tell you that it DID do something! I lost 1.6 lbs and 1/2 an inch from my waist in 3 hrs. Of course, it was water weight so it won’t last HOWEVER– if you are in desperate need of fitting into a dress for a special occasion I would say it was worth the discomfort. I do have a high pain tolerance soit may have made it easier to do for me. I am going to try the other method and I am going to try it overnight and just wrap my thighs.

I’ll make sure to let you know how it goes!

***** {UPDATE} *****

The weight and the inches stayed off for 2 weeks! I recently did this again and again, same results!


************* Another Update *****************


I recently started using It Works wraps and have lost a total of 4 inches and 3 lbs. in 2 weeks! It is staying off… there are other supplements to the wraps like pills and this powder you can add into your water or juice but I haven’t been faithful with those aspects, just did the wraps. I am still watching how it is working over time and will be posting a  full review soon! You can see my 1st wrap pics HERE and my 2nd wrap pics HERE and HERE is what I looked like 2 days after the 1st wrap which was a total WOW moment for me.
