This is a sponsored post where I was given product in exchange for a review. As always, all opinions are my own, and I’ll always deliver them with honesty, because that’s how I roll. You can learn more by visiting my disclosure tab.
My friend Trista is an It Works! gal. She’s making an income and having days full of fun at home (and on the go) with her girls, all while she runs her business mostly from her phone. I love that she’s doing something she loves and helping people to gain better nutrition and health!
At our last MOPS meeting she asked me if I’d like to try some products, and of course I jumped on the chance!
The products were the Greens Chew, the It Works! WOW, and the GREENS ON THE GO.
I’ll give you a quick break down and my thoughts on each one.
The Greens Chew was probably my favorite. I’d describe it as a little chewy block. It reminded me of a fresh starburst (soft and chewy, not the kind you get at a parade and leave in a bag for 2 months before trying to chomp into it- not that we ever do that here or anything).
It wasn’t too firm, or hard to chew at all. It didn’t stick to my teeth, and it didn’t have a nasty aftertaste. So those were all good things! The flavor was also pleasant. I’m a keen taster and I was able to taste a hint of “healthy”, but not in a bad way. The Berry flavor wasn’t overbearing.
In the words of Goldilocks it was “just right”.
I did a little research on these bad boys and they are like a little super hero! They’re packed full of fruits and veggies and prebiotic fiber. I don’t know if it’s related, but I ate one of these and sampled the Greens on the Go a few hours before I consumed bread and pasta, which I’ve been avoiding for 6 months. I didn’t get the gut wrenching stomach ache that I normally do after eating that way. It could’ve been a coincidence, but I’m thinking it’s actually the magic of the chew. If it is, that’s pretty amazing! I think these are a smart and simple way to add a little extra nutrition into your diet with basically zero effort.
Next up, is the WOW. Okay, I have been seeing pictures floating around Facebook of WOW before and afters, and I’ve been impressed. Plenty skeptical (because they say you see results in a minute), but also impressed (because the results are right there in the pictures). Maybe you’ve seen these pictures and wondered if it was for real?
I tried it. I’ll be honest; I wasn’t totally sold on it at first. This is mostly because I’m not terribly concerned with my wrinkles yet. The more I looked at my before, I realized how ridiculous my forehead wrinkles were and it drove me crazy.
So I tried this so-called miracle stuff & waited about 2 minutes like it says to do. I snapped another picture, and I didn’t notice much difference if any. Then I sat down to do a little work on the computer and wondered if it had done anything yet. I could feel it doing something but I didn’t know if it was visible. Being too lazy to get up and go look in a mirror, I grabbed my phone and snapped another selfie. um. WOW! That actually DID do something, didn’t it? I suppose that’s where it gets its name! Note: I applied this over my makeup, but it can also be done under. Yep, It Works!
Greens On The Go. This was good! I hate to sound cliché, but the best way to describe it is “yummy”. It’s a little packet of powder that you mix into 8oz of water. Fun fact: The majority of the drinking glasses in this house are exactly 8 ounces, leaving no room to pour and stir. After trying 3 different glasses, I found a 12 oz mason jar that worked perfectly!
The powder had a strong berry aroma that my children could smell from across the kitchen. I was quickly bombarded with the “What are you making?” and “Can I have some of that?” questions.
It was easy to stir into the water using a spoon. I suppose I also could’ve just screwed a lid on and shook it up good. The powder turns into a gorgeous deep green color when it gets wet.
The flavor was not nearly as strong as the smell. It was delightfully mild. My oldest daughter tasted a sip and said it tasted like flavored water. Thumbs up! That’s a good thing because it meant it wasn’t overpowering, and it wasn’t sweet and addicting leaving you wanting more, more, more like an off brand sugary drink in a similar little packet would do. This flavor was was again “just right”, and like the little chew, it was also packed full of nutrition! 8oz goes down quickly! Trista told me it’s better if you drink it fast. So don’t make this one a sipper! I really couldn’t have sipped it if I wanted to, it was good, and gone before I knew it!
So my first question when I heard of this company called, It Works! was, probably the same as yours, DOES IT REALLY WORK?
After trying the products I can tell you, YES, it DOES really work!
I was pleasantly surprised that I had absolutely no bad side-effects from any of the products I tried. I’ve sampled other supplements on the market and usually end up feeling jittery or dealing with a mild stomach ache. IT Works! didn’t give me either of those symptoms, and actually left me feeling energized!
