Ok so I wanted to know if anybody has heard of this wrap and tried it and if it actually worked. What you do is mix Vicks with rubbing alcohol and put it on your stomach. Then you wrap your stomach with Saran Wrap and sleep with it. Now I tried it, it burns a little and a messy and stains your clothes, also it's uncomfortable bc I have to sleep on my back or stomach. And in the middle of the night I wake up and it moved, half of my stomach is coming out. Lol. So just wanted to know if it's worth still doing it. Thanks

I've never tried it. Is it supposed to help lose weight? If it is, i'd do it. Anything to help lose a few pounds!

It's for water weight and it probably helps with bloating. You can get real ones at sports stores for when you exercise.


Is it worth it?

I think it's suppose to shape your body and I guess the Vicks and rubbing alcohol is suppose to make you you sweat off the belly fat? I'm not to sure

"According to the FDA, the resulting weight loss is completely temporary. The fluids and fats will come rushing back as one eats the next meal or drinks the next cups of liquid. FDA straightforwardly explains that even the best body wraps “have no effect on fat deposits and will not dissolve fat, even temporarily. Fat is not broken down by perspiration…”

Now on the other hand it is a quick fix to lose inches for a few days. So if you're needing to fit into a super sexy outfit for a party this would be a good suggestion. Keep in mind it's just water weight and the results are only temporary.

 

Here is a good website that has some body wraps you can buy to do at home, they're a little pricey but I go to a spa and it costs less than what it would cost there for far less treatments!

Hope this helps <3
