Ok, sometimes I agree to review an item just because I want to see if it might actually work. I know logically that it won't but I want to try it anyways. The Thin Botanicals Body Wraps are one such item. I know they aren't going to work, but I still wanted to see anyways. Because that's what I do sometimes. Let's get down to business (to defeat the huns! Like I wasn't going to finish that line, come on guys.)
These, like the million other similar wraps on the market, are suppose to immediately slim your stomach down and detox your body. This particular one claimed an immediate long term inch loss, which is quite the hefty claim. And for almost $32 for 5 on them, you really want them to work. But they don't, sorry guys. As any Doctor, fitness expert, or Nutritionist will tell you, the only way to lose weight is through diet and exercise. These didn't even help with bloating, which was a major let down. I thought they'd at least slim down the bloated belly I'd been battling that week thanks so some specific food choices.
The wraps themselves are essentially a giant bandaid with a whole cut out for your belly button. You wear them for 6-8 hours and are suppose to wake up to a slimmer midsection all ready for the bikini of your dreams. I've done two of the five wraps and the only thing I've lost is some peach fuzz off my tummy. These are just another gimmick in the endless line of get slim quick items that have permiated the markets lately. You want a slim stomach? Eat right and exercise. Sit ups and veggies will get you there quicker than all the expensive wraps you see. And before you flood my inbox with "well MY wraps work" emails, know that I will instantly delete them and block you, so save us both some trouble please and keep your snake oil to yourself.
