It Works is the company that launched in 2001 and is currently based in Florida, USA. They have expanded in different countries of the world including Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, France, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, Germany, UK, Canada and New Zealand. Their products range from Weight Loss Formulas and Fat Burners to Body Gel and Probiotics. The company started its business by selling body wraps but today it is considered an MLM focusing on Direct Sales. It Works belongs to 15 most profitable Direct Sale companies in North America. It has earned over half a billion dollars with a lot of competition for wellness and health products. What I am concerned about is that the founders do not disclose information so freely on the official website. The list of their products is really long, so they have divided them into seven categories.
Body includes Defining Gel, Ultimate Body Applicator and Fab Wrap. Skin involves Facial, It Works! WOW, Toner, Repairage, Cleanser, Stretch Mark, Hair Skin Nails, Preventage, Exploiting Peel, Lip & Eye. Greens section includes many products including Greens Blend Orange, Greens On The Go Blend Orange, Greens Blend Value Size Orange and Greens Blend Berry. Lifestyle involves It Works! Cleanse, It Works! Probiotic, Energy 12- Pack, Confianza, Advanced Formula Fat Fighter and It's Vital Minerals.

As you can see, the company manufactures a lot of products with different properties and goals. In this part of this review we will focus on one of the most popular products. It is Defining Gel, an intensive skin care gel that hydrates the skin while firming such vital areas as the back, abdomen, upper arms, and legs. It promises to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, and varicose veins. When used regularly it is claimed to noticeably flatten and tighten the skin. It can be even used on your face as a moisturizer. You can use this product before going to bed to wake up in the morning with the skin that is tighter and more youthful looking. It Works Defining Gel also promises to reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve skin texture, diminish appearance of varicose veins and stretch marks, as well as hydrate and soften the skin.
According to the manufacturer, It Works Defining Gel is made with all natural ingredients namely: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) Distillate, Alcohol Denat., Urea, Aesculum hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract, Fucus vesiculosus (Seaweed) Extract, Hedera helix (Ivy) Extract, Centella asi?tica (Hydrocotil) Extract, Ruscus aculeatus (Butchers Broom) Extract, Camellia sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Paullinia cupana (Guarana Seed) Extract, Dimethicone Copolyol, Triethanola-mine, PEG 7 Glyceril Cocoate, Carbomer, Methylsilanol Mannuronate, TEA-Hydroiodide, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Rosmarinus of-ficinalis (Rosemary) Oil, Linalool, Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil. Limonene. I cannot say that all of these ingredients are natural. It Works Defining Gel should be used twice a day. Apply a small amount of gel to targeted areas with circular massage until it is absorbed. Additional massaging will maximize the results.
Even though the company says absolutely nothing about possible side effects of their product, there is high risk of experiencing them. The reasons are that the formulas contain many chemicals which can be potentially harmful for human health. The most common side effects usually include skin reactions such as irritation, burning, itching, redness, peeling, etc.
There are many reviews about It Works products over there most of which are done by affiliates of the company. You never really know what is going on with the company. We have encountered a lot of biased reviews, which is a real problem. The truth is quite different. The company offers a business opportunity to earn money but before getting involved you want to make sure that it is a legit company. You can make the right decision by looking at the real users of their products and members of the company. Many of them claim that the products from this company do not work, including Fat Fighters, Cleanse drinks, and Keto Creamer.one client reports that they still pulled money and shipped their products when she shut her auto shipment off. That woman called them to return the products and explain that shipment was cancelled, they still charged the return shipment which was meant to be free. This company seems to be a scam, and its staff are all money hungry. The woman also had to deal with a consultant, who was very aggressive with her. She is disgusted with this company and everything it has to offer, including their products and customer service. Let us take a look at the actual customers' testimonials found online.
"I am negatively impressed with the It Works company. The hair, nails and skin pills made me lose hair and suffer from stomachaches. This company is shady. After I signed an agreement I called their customer service. They told me to get a doctor's note in order to get out of the agreement. That appointment would cost $100. I just chose their second option, in which I had to buy their wrinkle cream for $40 (I do not have wrinkles). They promised I can cancel end of January. I read the reviews about this company after I agreed with them and they are not good."
"It Works company is just terrible! Its distributors lie about how much they earn. They will teach you how to lie to your friends on Facebook and how to cold message. When I resigned the girls that were above me, they blocked me. The products are all ineffective. The company says they are completely natural but they are not! It's all about money! I would not recommend this company to anyone!"
"Don't waste your money on It Works! I tried their cleanse for three months. I was told it would automatically stop payments after this period of time, but it did not. I felt totally deceived. I sent them multiple messages but in vain. The cleanse itself did not work and tasted like crap. Its price was too high. I would recommend neither this product nor this company."
As it was already mentioned, the company offers a wide variety of products which vary in price significantly. Let's just take a look at some of them. Ultimate Body Applicator costs $59, It Works! WOW is priced at $46, Toner can be bought for $33, Repairage costs $29, Hair Skin Nails can be purchased for $33, Exploiting Peel is priced at $36, Greens Blend Value Size Orange can be ordered for $79, It Works! Probiotic costs $31, Advanced Formula Fat Fighter can be bought for $23, It's Vital Minerals is priced at $23, Lavender Essential Oil costs $23. All product can be bought from the company directly. As you can see, they are very expensive.
Taking into account everything we have learnt about It Works, this company seems to be very shady and unreliable. Even though, it has been around for more than twenty years, it is not very popular or reputable in the country. A lot of customers consider it to be a scam. It tries to attract people into their "get rich quick" business plan, which is dishonest and deceiving. Many clients complain that the company continues shipping their products and charging people's cards for the products they never ordered. The latter have low quality and are not all natural, as promised. Some users have experienced side effects when using their products, which are also very expensive. $30 is too much for a cream or multi vitamins. With these pros and cons in mind, I cannot recommend It Works. Stay away from this company.
