Ive been looking into getting these body wraps by It Works! and apparently they work wonders.  After looking at all the results from other people I must say that Im convinced they work.. But before buying them I would love to know if any of you moms have used them yourselves or know anyone personally who has used them, what did you/they think?

What results are you looking for?

If you're overweight, they are not going to do anything for you.

You can do some DIY wraps for less but really the results done last. So I would do one if I was going to and event like a wedding and wanted to take an inch off for the night. It's water weight it will come back.

It's not a permanent thing. It maybe lasts a day or two.

One of my sisters sells them, and most people buy them to use before weddings etc. when they want to lose some of that 'bloat' to look good in a dress.

If you're talking about loose skin, it won't last. There isn't much you can do about stretchmarks etc. other than surgery.

Do you have any coconut oil? That can help with your skin a bit. I use coconut or pomegranate oil. My 4th is 3 months old, and my tummy is back to normal now. I moisturize in the morning, after every shower or bath, and before bed.

ive been reading lots of reviews about it and there are mixed feelings, but most people say it was worth it even if the results werent amazing.  im going to try it, i guess you can never know until you try right!    i have heard about the coconut oil helping with weight loss but never rubbing it on your belly to smooth out the skin. does that really work? how long do you leave it on for?

It's a very good moisturizer. You just rub it in, it's not really greasy and there is no need to wash it off etc. it will come off when you have a shower next.

 I have a question about coconut oil.  I bought 2 different kinds, one in a jar and one in a bottle.  I was surprised to find they are both solid.  It's hard to get them out.  I don't get how an oil can be so solid.  Is yours this way?
