    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit: First Impressions

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit: First Impressions

    Body wraps have been around for a while, offering a “quick fix” to losing inches on problem areas, making you skinnier in seconds. I’ve never been a true believer in them. They may shave the inches temporarily, but, in my opinion, the only real way to effectively lose weight permanently is maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and regular exercise.

    But, my theories were tested when Shrinking Violet sent me their home edition body wrap kitto review.

    The kit contains an oil to apply to ‘problem areas’, a measuring cup, tape measure, a sheet to record your measurements and the extremely trendy shrinky suit.

    Basically, you apply one cup of the oil to wherever you want to target, be it your legs stomach, arms etc, then you slip in to the shrinky suit and let it work it’s magic for one hour. You can either carry on with your day (I probably wouldn’t pop to the shops in it), or you can do a workout while wearing it.

    The shrinky suit helps raise the body temperature, which apparently helps the solution get to work breaking down fat cells and increasing sweat excretion (attractive).

    I have to say I was pretty warm wearing the shrinky suit and I just decided I’d wear it while watching celebrity big brother! Either the suit really does generate more body heat or Stevi Ritchie’s hip thrusting was really getting me hot under the collar. Let’s go with the shrinky suit works…

    Honestly, I didn’t feel like it was doing anything except making me a bit warm, so when I removed the suit after an hour, I was surprised to find a 1 inch loss around my stomach.

    The instructions say the oil will have soaked into your skin and will continue to work on breaking down fat cells over the next 24 hours so I was intrigued to see if I lost any more. But I didn’t. I have remained at 1 inch smaller though, which is a positive!

    You can use this kit every 7 days and I have a month’s supply, so I’m going to follow up this post with a final review after I’ve used the whole kit to see whether it really made a difference, but so far, so good!

    The Shrinking Violet Home Edition Body Wrap Kit is £129.

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

    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.
    Much love

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap - The Third Top Key Summer Treatment At The Sha Medical Weight Loss Clinic This Summer!

    5 Key Summer Treatments

    Summer is already here and we all want to feel and look our best. Whilst we’re advocates of following a healthy lifestyle throughout the year to avoid crash diets and last-minute fitness regimes, we do believe in stepping up our wellness game before summer to feel good in our skin.

    Aside from following a healthy diet and exercising regularly, the wellness experts at SHA Wellness Clinic recommend complementing a balanced and healthy lifestyle with specialised treatments that tighten the skin, as well as reduce cellulite, accumulated fat and target problem areas.

    Specialised treatments are especially recommended for women, as they frequently suffer from these issues, even when they eat healthily, exercise and take care of their skin. Because of their physiognomy, there is an increased tendency to suffer from cellulite, circulation problems, liquid retention and fat accumulation in the abdomen, thighs and glutes. As a solution, the expert’s advice solving these issues with highly effective specialized non-invasive treatments that target problem areas and provide instant results.

    The wellness clinic experts at SHA Wellness Clinic have shared the best treatments to improve circulation, eliminate liquid retention, remove cellulite, tighten the skin and eliminate fat in the body. These are the most effective treatments in the market that provide a noticeable difference from the first treatment.

    The best summer treatments:

    1. Electric lymphatic drainage: innovative method that combats the build-up of toxins in the body. The electrical pulses enhance the natural functions of the lymphatic system, speed up the metabolism to reduce volume, eliminate water retention, reduce cellulite and improve body sculpting.
    2. Pressotherapy: stimulates the circulatory system, enhances lymphatic drainage and helps eliminate liquids, fats and toxins that cause cellulite, oedemas, lymphedema and venous disorders such as varicose veins.
    3. Shrinking Violet Body Wrap: this method activates the lipolysis process, eliminating unwanted fat without effort or discomfort. It provides immediate and lasting slimming and body shape effects helping lose inches in problem areas such as the thighs, hips and stomach, among others.
    4. Indiba: non-invasive radio frequency treatment that shapes the silhouette, reduces cellulite, stretch marks and sagging, and firms the skin. Recommended sessions: 6
    5. Vela Shape III: contours, remodels, shapes and slims the body by improving cellulite and reducing circumference in as few as one treatment session. It provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
      Additionally, the fitness experts at SHA recommend complementing these treatments with Reformer Pilates and Yoga to strengthen and lengthen the muscles.

    How to Shrink inches as well as pounds in Spain

    How to Shrink inches as well as pounds in Spain

    I recently travelled to The Sha Wellness Clinic in Spain, to Shrink some inches as well as lose some pounds. Here goes! 


    Sometimes willpower alone won’t do when it comes to slimming down. Jemila called in the big guns at SHA Wellness Clinic with treatments from British company Tibby Olivier - Shrinking Violet Inch Loss Treatments.

    After hearing of Champneys success with Tibby Olivier’s Shrinking Violet Inch Loss Treatments. I was intrigued to try the treatments at a medical weight loss centre, and see how they are used to their full maximum capability. I already use the Home care as a daily maintenance and contour control try


    I really recommend it.

    After Landing at Alicante airport, I take the Autopista AP-7 up Spain’s Costa Blanca: defiantly no week in Benidorm here, I took a left turn then to a rather different holiday.

    At the seaside town of Albir is SHA Wellness Clinic. Help coffee is off the menu, not much alcohol gulp! No meat, no dairy that’s my cheese habit busted, no sugar but dairy milk is my friend! Instead lots and lots of tea. But the most rugged coastline, luxurious rooms – each commanding views of the coast and nearby mountains and probably the healthiest place in the world.

    You can book into to SHA : to detox, ease stress, give up smoking or, in my case, lose weight and Shrink some inches!

    The next morning 7 am!!! blood pressure checked and weighed in. Sticking to a healthy diet and exercise routine (being naturally lazy I prefer to gently walk in the beautiful Lake District), is hard and I admit weekends are long in The Cake District! But putting me somewhere out of reach of temptation, but luxurious enough to make up for the absence of Rose wine and dairy milk, could this work!

    The spa and clinic are state of the art, an army of beautiful staff in spotless uniforms catering apparently to every complaint known to man and woman.

    I now begin a week on the Biolight Menu (1,000 calories a day).the Kushi diet became my regime for the the stay. I enjoyed it immensely I have to admit and even the teas you are given to constantly drink. I now love Roobios fat burning Tea who knew!

    If someone prepared all my meals at home I would stick to it! it’s just I don’t earn enough for a personal chef yet! Otherwise I am sure I would be thin!

    It’s the treatments at the Sha I love, daily I am bathed in a Shrinking Violet Slimming Solution, such a wonderful start to any treatment regime a slimming bath, Tibby Olivier sell this too Slim Bathe who wouldn’t want to bathe and slim!


    I am buying this the minute I get home, dark cold winter nights are transformed into candles and hot baths, with memories of The Sha to keep me warm!

    Then I am massaged with Shrinking Violet Slimming Solution, an intense lymphatic draining massage, wonderful Shrinking Sheer Bliss! an inch loss body ritual treatment designed to relax and de stress, stimulating and de-congesting the lymphatic system along with real inch loss! I am in heaven and followed by a Shrinking Violet Body Wrap, the revolutionary clinically proven inch loss body wrap, a treatment so powerfully fat busting, that one 90 minute application can result in a reduction of up to one whole dress size. Clinically proven for up to 2.5% fat reduction per application. Its active ingredients penetrate cells and fat busting formula acts as an ideal slimming solution. I am amazed by the results which I can see and feel instantly the treatment is over!

    Apparently the combination of these treatments is named Shrinking Extreme Boosting, it most certainly is the Inch Loss Leader as far as I am concerned! Boosting my body confidence by helping to reduce fat, detoxifying, improving cellulite and fluid retention. Shrinking those inches in a haze of lavender heavenly bliss whilst I drift away! Sleep and Shrink it should be named! Targeting all problem areas and leaving my skin firmer, smoother and more toned, a lot cheaper than liposuction and non surgical!

    Unequal-able in powerful fat reduction and body sculpting in my opinion. I am simply blown away, I know now why it is on the treatment menu here in a medical weight loss clinic. Further research on my return shows me Shrinking Violet Inch Loss treatments are available worldwide in Champneys Spas, Resense and Kempinski Spas Worldwide and The Maldives, Seychelles, Bermuda, Barbados and throughout the whole of Dubai and the UAE and the Gulf states too. I am not surprised it’s on every too spa menu list, I have never had a treatment with such long lasting results.

    I believe my stay at The Sha was made complete by these treatments and I would happily return to live there! I am planning my next escape as we speak!

    The British company whom make these treatments is Tibby Olivier

    I am planning on testing the much acclaimed Faith Lift Mask next, I love the name already, a face lifting mask named Faith Lift!

    Back to the highlight of the SHA is a vast terrace comprising of a pool, sunbathing and Shamadi restaurant, where you can eat inside or out and take in the awesome view!

    The daily cookery courses are fun and a great way of indoctrinating the macrobiotic way into your diet when you’re back home. There’s yoga, meditation, pilates, tai chi and many more activities besides. Daily walks either to the beach or around the mountain to the lighthouse with its spectacular views along the coast. Take me back please...

    And the results? Well, you get a running commentary with weigh-ins every other day using a machine that gives you the most detailed fat distribution read-out imaginable. Plus a blood test at the start and finish of your stay to see how much your condition has improved. At the end of the fortnight I’ve lost 12kg and dropped two dress sizes.

    Thirty Inches Lost In 2 Hours!

    Thirty Inches Lost In 2 Hours!

    Lose inches without breaking a sweat! Yes please, sign me up! Losing pounds and saving pounds both appeal to me in equal measures, so when I saw a Shrinking Violet Body Wrap with an epic discount advertised on Groupon, I didn’t hesitate. These wraps full price are around £50-£70 each, the saver deal was 2 wraps for £39. Absolute bargain!

    Inches lost – 30.5″
    (16.5″ then 14″ over 2 treatments 3 months apart)
    Price – £39
    Effort – Zero
    Sleep – 2 hours
    Pro – All of the above
    Con – I can’t do it weekly

    My treatment was with the lovely Chelsie at Mirror Mirror in the Polwarth area of Edinburgh, Chelsie is so friendly and quite happily chats away without being too intrusive, or worse, being totally fake and uninterested in what she’s talking about (happens a lot). The treatment room is downstairs and is calm and inviting with relaxing music and a cosy, warm atmosphere with a nicely fluffed pillow and velvet blanket on the bed.

    First stage of the wrap is to unwrap. Yes, I may have felt a little silly/embarrassed standing there starkers but for my pants, but I figured like a Dr, a beautician has seen it all before and couldn’t give two hoots. I was right. Chelsie took a note of all my measurements from my calves up. Knees, thighs, waist, belly, hips, upper arms. Measured and recorded.

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap, 1st session. 16.5″ lost.

    I was then body brushed. This helps with blood circulation, shedding dead skin cells and promotes a smoother and brighter skin. After this the Shrinking Violet oil was applied and rubbed in. Then comes the bit where you feel a right eejit. It’s not cling film but looks very like it, the film is a lot stronger and I was very carefully wrapped up, essentially mummified but thankfully able to move (just).

    My legs were individually wrapped as were my arms, free to move if I wanted, I had visions of my arms being stuck to my body so was relieved I would be able to attempt an itch scratch if I needed. I was also a little anxious about being trapped, so was thankful in the unlikely event a fire alarm did go off I’d be able to walk out, not attempt to bunny hop up the stairs to freedom.

    Once I was fully wrapped, I carefully and oh so ungracefully hopped/flopped onto the bed to relax for an hour. In the cosy room and wrapped up in a velvet blanket I relaxed easily and promptly fell fast asleep. While I snoozed, the oil and cling film got to work and after some much appreciated shuteye Chelsie woke me up and all my measurements were taken again. I was also told to drink lots and lots of water as the oil keeps on working for a good few hours once you have been unwrapped.

    Shrinking Violet works best with a course of treatments, it’s usually around 6 are recommended for maximum impact. However if you’re short of time and for a last minute fix I’d totally recommend this and as you can see from my results even a solitary session can make a significant difference. I’ve had 4 now, have loved them all and have felt an immediate difference. After my most recent one I had to shuffle for the bus home, hands in pockets holding everything up, after not bringing a belt and my waist disappearing so rapidly.

    Shrinking Violet Body Wrap.  3 months after my 1st wrap. 14″ lost.

    Keeping the inches off is a different matter. Like any weight loss treatment, obviously if you neck all the gin and eat all the cake those inches are gonna find you again. Immediate inch loss sorted. Keeping it off, that’s the bit I need to work on.


    Obviously I looked just as good as this (but without white underwear).

    The Science bit. Shrinking Violet works through lyposis, totally pain and effort free. While you lie and relax, the heat (thanks to the wrap, oils and blanket) builds causing the active ingredients to penetrate your skin. The heat works on a fatty subcutaneous layer below your skin and the fat is transformed from a triglyceride (within the fat cell) to a free fatty acid. Free fatty acids can be more easily removed from your body and are simply excreted in tissue fluid into the wrap.
