The Bottom Line
I did one body wrap. I lost 6 inches in the process. I did not lose any weight. I only tried it once, and I am told that repeated use, twice per week for six weeks, is preferable.
- Clear instructions and visuals
- No contracts
- Compacts fat
- Compacts fat, but doesn't get rid of it.
- Did not see ability to purchase just solution when initial supply runs out.
- Slimmer Silhouette is an Arizona company that offers a home body wrap that is supposed to eliminate inches by compacting fat.
- Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use the body wrap kit.
- Avoid alcoholic beverages before, during and immediately after a treatment. Limit salt and caffeine.
Guide Review - Slimmer Silhouette Home Body Wrap
About the suppliesYou are told that aside from what's in the kit you need: a large slow cooker, electric roaster or large pot; a cooking thermometer; 1 gallon purified water (I don't keep this on hand), a timer; a pen; a towel; a bathmat. I would add to this list: a small measuring cup (for getting the water into the rehydrating bottle when there's not much left in the pot).
Here's what I liked about the Slimmer Silhouette Home Body Wrap program
- the booklet and DVD make it clear how to use the product and what is supposed to happen
- you can do the body wrap in the privacy of your own home
- nothing intrusive (no cutting, injections, tubes, etc.) about the process
Here's what I disliked/didn't understand about the Slimmer Silhouette program
- I don't have a large slow cooker, so I used a large pot which still wasn't large enough to completely submerge all 12 wraps. Because my bathroom is the farthest point from the kitchen, the process of keeping water solution warm for rehydrating was complicated!
- Doing the aerobics was a challenge. I thought dancing would work, but anything more than shuffling made the wraps come undone.
- My skin was not noticeably smoother, and I didn't discern any toning or tightening of skin.
- I didn't feel less stressed (maybe more!)
- The wraps come with clips, but the instructions say to tuck the ends instead of using the clips. I kept thinking clips would be easier.
- The wrapping instructions were clear, but since I was alone I found that there's a science (which I didn't fully master) to knowing where to start a wrap so that it doesn't end up on your back where you can't reach it to tuck the end under!
- The solution seemed to leave a white residue on everything. I was careful to completely wash down the pots, the counters, the bath mat and towels, in addition to following the instructions for cleaning the bandages. When considering how long a wrap takes, include cleanup time.
If you try the Slimmer Silhouette Home Body Wrap take these points into consideration:
- I don't know of any way to determine if any detoxification took place, or if any harmful toxins were removed.
- If you are a large person, you probably won't be able to cover your entire body with one set of wraps. You'll probably have to do two partials.
- Instructions don't cover how much treatment formula to use if it isn't a full wrap. Is it half a bag for 6 wraps? Half the water? I don't know.
- The video mentions and shows a duffle bag for storage, but it doesn't come with the kit. After finishing my wrap, I wished I had something other than the original box, which is large, in which to store the supplies.
- Consult your physician before using the products, especially if you have high blood pressure, low blood pressure, any heart condition, varicose veins, diabetes, or digestive problems.
