The oil contains phospholipid, which is also the key ingredient in fat-dissolving injections. This triggers lipolysis (the process of breaking down fat cells so they can be excreted by the body) and once this fat is gone, it’s gone for good (as long as you stay away from the cupcakes!)
Three times more powerful than any other wrap on the market (it contains 20 per cent phospholipid), it works on problem areas targeting the actual fat cells. The ingredients continue to work on your fat deposits for over 72 hours. My therapist said you can expect to lose between four to 15 inches per session. You’ll see visible changes after just one session, but for maximum benefit two sessions are recommended.
After a consultation with Sarah at Sisters (the Shrinking Violet Wrap pro) the treatment began with a quick all-over body brush. This really gets your circulation going, brings blood to the surface of the skin, and opens the pores, helping the magic ingredient – The Shrinking Violet Oil – to be absorbed. The oil was applied all over from the neck down, and I was amazed to find it smelt wonderful. Containing essential oils of juniper, lavender and cypress, it’s nourishing as well as being a serious fat fighter.
Once the oil is on, you’re wrapped up in what is essentially industrial strength cling film before you lie on the bed for an hour under lots of cosy warm towels – it’s the heat that activates the clever phospholipid. Although you feel like a marinated chicken waiting to be cooked, it’s not uncomfortable or claustrophobic, and you can move your arms fairly freely. You’re then unwrapped, the remainder of the oil is massaged in, and you’re good to go. You’re encouraged to eat light, fresh foods and drink lots of water to help your body rid itself of all those nasty toxins.
I am always sceptical when it comes to anything that promises instant inch loss. But I have to admit defeat with this one. Thorough before and after measurements were taken, and I was amazed to discover that I’d lost a total of seven inches, in just one treatment, with some areas seeing a loss of half an inch. My skin felt wonderfully smooth and everything felt that bit tighter. Not bad for an hour in bed! It’s the perfect quick-fix if that LBD has gotten a little tight, or if you want to kick-start your weight-loss regime. That, ladies, is a wrap!
