It Works Product Reviews
In my last post I shared that I was sampling two of the products from It Works. My first experience was with the body applicator "wrap". I have "wings" or "dog ears" left over from my last reconstruction that poke out near my hips. They are unsightly and a constant reminder of my body's betrayal. I applied the body applicator wrap around my back covering each 'wing'. I left it on for longer than the recommended 45 minutes because I'm a hard-headed-determined-to-use-up-every-drop-of-product kind of gal (cheap). Here is my before photo and the after photo with hand-y pointers showing my 'wings' in both photos.
The second product I tried was the Lip and Eye Gel I've been looking so forward to using. I have dark circles under my eyes regardless of amount of sleep I get at night. They're genetic - practically everyone in my family has them. My husband, in his loving way, calls them my raccoon eyes. I've tried all kinds of different products to at least minimize them: concealers, foundation, under eye creams from various brands, essential oils, etc. Never any real results came from repeated applications. This herbal-based gel was applied over a mineral powder in the parking lot after a meeting in town. It took me about 30 minutes to drive home and get my husband to take an after photo. That's it! Below you'll see the that eye on the left is the before and the one on the right is the after. Again, I used my hand-y pointers to show my problem areas.
These are seriously my before and after photos. Each photo was taken at a different time and with the eye photos in a different location. The only altering was the color balance and cropping to show only the applicable area. No smoothing, no cloning, nothing was done to alter the appearance of the photos. These are really photos taken using either an iPhone or my iPad and any balancing or cropping was done on my iPad. Genuine change brought about in a ridiculously short time - nothing else!
