In today’s post, I will proivde a review of the top 20 It Works! products…
The tagline says: Have You Tried That Crazy Wrap Thing? It seems that many people have been quite happy to try that crazy wrap thing, because It Works! has grown into a very successful MLM company.
In today’s post, I am going to give you my review of It Works! I will tell you all I can about the company and its leadership team. I will share what I can about the company’s compensation plan. Last but not least, I will share the top 20 It Works! products.
Please know that neither I nor Online MLM Community is affiliated in any way with It Works! This information is given to help you decide if you would like to use the products or become an It Works! independent representative.
The History Of It Works!
Mark Pentecost was a struggling teacher in Michigan. While he loved teaching High School and coaching basketball, Mark also realized that paying the monthly bills was difficult.
Mark’s wife Cindy was a homemaker taking care of 3 children. With debts attacking from all sides, Mark discussed an idea he had with Cindy in which he predicted he could make an extra $500 per month.
He would start a home based business in telecommunications.
Cindy agreed and before they knew it, Mark was bringing in much more than $500 per month because he was a top representative with Excel Communications.
As Mark developed his understanding of multilevel marketing, he began to dream of one day owning a MLM company himself. He told Cindy and the dream was planted in her heart, too.
Mark came across a product one day and took it home for Cindy to try. When she put the body wrap on, Cindy called her girlfriend to tell her about it, and she proceeded to tell Cindy she wanted to try it.
The wheels were set in motion and in 2001, It Works! was founded in Michigan. Just a few years ago, It Works! moved their headquarters to Bradenton, Florida.
To become a representative, or what is known as a Wrapreneur, you will have to pay a fee of $99 for a starter kit. To qualify for commissions, you must have $80 of product auto-shipped each month for resale or personal use.
The It Works! Compensation Plan
The It Works! compensation plan is one of the better plans in the industry. If you cannot make money with their plan, you are not working the program.
There are many ways to earn:
- If you can acquire 4 loyal customers in the first month, you get $120 worth of free products that you can sell for a profit.
- Every 2 customers who order through you earns you a box of wraps for $25, and you can sell them for $25 each making you $75 profit.
- It Works! has many bonus structures for Wrapreneurs.
- Depending on your level, the commissions are quite lucrative.

It Works! Blitzing
One of the marketing methods taught at It Works! is the process of Blitzing. Many people are apprehensive to just step up and talk to strangers about That Crazy Wrap Thing, but when you use the blitzing process, it becomes fun and not scary.
Simply put, blitzing is handing strangers your business card that doubles as a coupon. But Blitzing cards are not the same size as a business card.
Most people just stash business cards in their billfold or purse and never look at them again until they are throwing them in a trash can.
Blitz cards are closer in size to postcards and offer a coupon, before and after pictures and they are colorful and printed on both sides.
It will be difficult for people to not read the card and when they see they can get a discount, you are attacking their emotional buying signals.
Even if they are not interested, they are apt to show the card to friends and family members.
The fact is: Blitzing works, and I am quite surprised more MLM companies have not copied this It Works! marketing method.
I do suggest that even if you are affiliated with a different MLM company, you learn the It Works! blitzing method.
You could probably develop your own Blitz cards and use the system.
What Others Are Saying About It Works!
When I read the many reviews, I find a mix of both positive and negative. The Better Business Bureau has given It Works! a B+ rating because of some negative reviews.
It is my personal opinion that many of these negative reviews come from former reps, or distributors in other companies. I suggest that if you do become an independent representative with It Works!, that you find a successful Wrapreneur to be a mentor for you.
I want to share one negative and one positive review to help you see both sides:
From Alberta, Canada: Tried the product for just about 2 months. Didn’t really see any change. The wraps seem to just get rid of water weight so it’s not permanent. Also one thing is the pills you take taste absolutely disgusting. I know this will obviously vary in each person, but the smell alone would make me gag and when I was taking them I had to down a gallon of water just to get rid of the taste. Also one more concerning thing is that I still can’t find their clinical research which probably means there isn’t any.
From Crestview, Florida: I am just blown away! The products helped me lose 70 pounds this year! I feel so much better! Amazing, Fantastic, and Excellent doesn’t describe. I have started using almost all of their products. Their skin care! Out of this world. Those wraps AMAZING! Seriously top of the line company!
Top 20 It Works! Products
It Works! started with the basic wraps to contour and shape figures, but since that time, the It Works! executives have added a huge line of products.
Distributors have smiles as they have a complete line of products that they can offer that can help people lose weight, stay healthy and enjoy all aspects of life.
I am putting what I believe to be the top 20, but your opinion may differ, and also there are many other products, so be sure and check them all out.
If you agree or disagree with my findings, feel free to tell us about it in the comments area at the end of this post.

6: Ultimate ProFIT® – Rich Chocolate

It only takes 2 days of use, and you will clean your body of the toxins and junk that holds you back. The Cleanse is a huge selling item and favored by many.

3: Defining Gel™
This gel uses a softening and hydration that also tones and firms problem areas on your body. Many customers use it in conjunction with that wrap thing.
2: Ultimate Body Applicator™
Yes, this is that crazy wrap thing. It is the original product that It Works started with and is a huge favorite. Wrap parties are held all the time, and you can notice extreme differences after using the wrap.
This product comes with 4 applications to help you zone in on those body problem areas. This item came close to being #1, but I find the sales figures to be slightly lacking in comparison to the #1 product.
1: Greens on the Go™ Blend Orange
This by far is the best It Works product. Filling your body with all the nutrients you need from your greens, this product comes with 30 single serve packets.
Just mix with water and get your nutritional needs. The orange flavor is delightful.
What the Products Don’t Do
It Works! products are not intended to prevent, cure or treat any diseases. None of these statements have been evaluated by the FDA.
It Works! Success Stories
Many people have discovered that their dreams and desires can come true by being Wrapreneurs.
It Works! has helped normal, everyday people grow into huge financial success stories, and It Works! has also helped people who were disgusted looking in the mirror to have a huge change and are now not only happy to look in the mirror, they are proud wearing a bikini, shorts and other clothing they would have never wore before.
Check out some of these success stories.
Remember The It Works! Gives Back Foundation
Another great thing about It Works! is the fact that they give back. In 2014, the It Works! Gives Back Foundation was formed to help support causes they believe in.
Every year, It Works! has a Gives Back week where teams are encouraged to support local charities. Throughout the year, the Gives Back Foundation’s Board of Directors decide which causes to help.
Current help is given to:
- The Payton Wright Foundation that helps support families who are in a battle against pediatric brain cancer.
- Samaritan’s Purse helps people around the world suffering from natural disasters or humanitarian crisis.
- The V Foundation supports cancer research.
- Selah Freedom that is in a war against human trafficking.
- Children’s Cup is on a mission to inspire children everywhere.
So not only is It Works! in the MLM business to make profits, they are here to help the world too.
Personally, I believe It Works! will continue to climb in popularity. While there are naysayers, many people have shown a huge improvement in their lives by using the products.
