The Irenew Bracelet

Updated on May 7, 2011
Made of stainless steel and silicone, the iRenew is really very attractive.

No, I do NOT believe it is magic.

I will start off with this statement.  The iRenew is not a magic bracelet with powers of health restoration or an energy boost.  At least I do not believe it.  It is, however, a pleasant looking piece of jewelry that is easy to adjust, easy to wear, and inoffensive to allergies.  The stainless steel clasp and silicone band are smooth and gentle against the wrist, and I found it possible to sleep with it on.  It is waterproof, so there is no worry that you will ruin it accidentally when washing hands.

Still a value.

At $20, the iRenew is still a good value.  If you look at the price of most cosmetic jewelry, you are going to pay between five and eighteen dollars for any regular fashion bracelets on the market.  Of course they will be much more if they contain silver, gold, or genuine stones.  Having worked as a direct seller for a cosmetics company, I can verify that the cost of the iRenew is on the higher end of a rather average market retail price.  And having worked for that same company, and after throwing several earrings and necklaces away because they corroded and reacted with my skin, I can appreciate the fact that the iRenew is noncorrosive and nonirritating.

How It Works

The clasp is very similar to the one on my favorite watch.  It folds to lock in place, and comes open with the press of a little tab.  You can adjust it, but be careful not to trim too much off it at once--you can always clip a little more, but you can't clip less once it's been cut.  Use a paper clip--bend one piece of it out straight--and pry open the part where the metal clamps onto the silicone.  This can be done on both sides, so that the emblem remains in the middle when you're done.

Voila! You're done!

When it's been fully adjusted, slip it on.  They come in black or white, but I prefer black--it goes with more outfits, and as a general rule black resists staining.  I left mine a bit loose, not a snug fit, but more like a bangle.  I cannot emphasize enough what a comfortable bracelet it is--I forget I even have it on!

No, I don't work for them!

I thought it would be interesting to write about it because I had been curious about them for a long time, and I am a bit of a sucker for things I see on TV.  I just got one for Christmas, and even before I got it I didn't really believe they were magic or scientific or anything.  It might be nice if they'd pay me to say nice things about it, though.  Hmm...  Should I contact them and ask?  No, I guess not, because they are still trying to get us to believe it can reset your energy fields, or block harmful radical rays, or something or other.

Update: It works!

I will state this again: I do not work for Irenew, nor am I being compensated in any way for my opinion.

I wore the bracelet for about two months, then took it off and left it on my dresser for about two months, then put it on again.  I did notice a difference in my strength and balance.  I was not trying to make it work.  In fact, I was trying to disprove it.

Why does it work?  I still do not believe it can reset mystic energy fields.  I think the effect may be psychological, something to do with the black color being noticed out of the corner of my eye and causing my brain to relocate my sense of orientation.  Or it may be that I am holding my arm lower when I wear bracelets, and this could include any kind of bracelet.  Or it may be that the lightweight, comfortable band is neurologically soothing, and this reflects in my nervous system's sense of balance and connection.  Whatever it is, don't rush out and buy it because of what they say on TV.  Buy one if you want one, not because it can magically make you hyper-strong or super-balanced.  Just because it works for me doesn't mean it will work for everyone!

      Humm...I never heard of this bracelet. I have heard of those bracelets that claim to help people with arthritis.

      I do like the way the irenew bracelet looks and might buy or order one if I ever come across one.
