The lovely team at Shrinking Violet were kind enough to let me try out and review for myself their new product, which I think is on its way to revolutionising the weight loss world! Before I get into what the body wrap does lets talk about the packaging! I must say I am a sucker for pretty packaging which looks clean and crisp and not too OTT. When I got this out of the box it came in I was so delighted with the look and feel of it ♥ Purple is such a pretty colour and the box cover felt so smooth and looked so neat, it did have a ribbon with tape measure detail on it but I was so excited I opened it before the photos 🙂
What is it?
The shrinking violet wrap is basically what it says! It is a wrap, well in this case a suit that you put on with the solution included which helps you to loose weight and get rid of bad toxins! It is that easy right!? Yes indeed it is, you simply rub on the solution given to any areas that you think are a problem to you, pop on the suit and wait! You leave it on for up to an hour and can sit still, exercise and go about your daily business…..just remember to put the suit on AFTER the postman comes otherwise you may get some strange looks haha
The suit helps to increase your body temperature which in turn helps you to sweat out the toxins and in effect lose weight a little at a time. The box includes a tape measure and measurement cards, so before you start do measure yourself and keep note to record how much you have lost! After my first time I saw immediate results and lost 3cm in some areas and 1cm in others! You also leave the solution on for 72 hours after rubbing it in your skin to see even further results!
All the information is included in the booklet, with questions and answers. The solution smells so wonderful, a strong lavender smell which reminds me of relaxing!
Does it work?
The thing with all weight loss products that you must remember everyone is different so what works for one person may not work for another. Also it isnt' a thing where you can sit in the shrinky suit and eat burgers and fries and expect to lose weight. With anything it takes mental dedication in wanting to improve yourself but I think what is great about this is it helps to cleanse your body in a healthy way with you doing as little or as much as you want. Keeping hydrated is always important and using this product is a great way to keep on top of this as you are losing sweat and need to keep hydrated.
For me it did work with immediate results, even it was only a little decrease in weight! For the best results it is recommended you take the 90 day challenge which I am looking to do and see what results I get then!
I have read it can take up to 6 inches off your body!
If you are really serious about weight loss and the health of your body I would really recommend this. Even if you are on a shake diet or reducing your meals I think this could be the next step.
