SKINNYMINT TEA*


Teatox's have been the absolute rage recently and today I have a review of one of them, for you! I was very kindly contacted by a brand called SkinnyMint who sent out some of their tea's for me and my mum to try. We received the 28 day Teatox which consists of a Morning Boost and Night Cleanse.


When I was contacted by this brand, I was over the moon! I personally had already heard of them and knew some of my favourite celebrities, youtubers and models were using it, ranging from Griffin Arnlund to Yovanna Ventura and even Kylie Jenner! I'm always overly cautious when it comes to things like detox tea's, but I did loads of research and heard nothing but good reviews, so I was super eager to try it!


The first thing I want to talk about is the packaging which I adore. It comes in this waterproof, resealable packet, which is really cute! The Night Cleanse is smaller than the Morning Boost as you use it every other day, instead of every day, and has a blue colour scheme unlike the Morning Boost which has a pink one. I also love the texture of the actual tea bags too. They're a mesh material and just feel very good quality in general.


Something not really related to the tea, that I still want to mention, is the customer service. It is honestly amazing! Their website is really easy to use and they have a live online chat where you can fire away any questions you have. Every time I used this, I would get an instant reply, which, let's be real, everyone wants! You can just tell they're genuinely happy to help.


So now I'm going to talk about the taste of the teas. Initially, I really struggled to drink the Morning Boost (which is more fruity) but preferred the Night Cleanse (which is more herbally), however, a few days after using the tea's, the tables had turned and I actually preferred the Morning Boost! Personally, I liked adding some lemon to my Morning Boost tea as it just makes the flavour more subtle. My mum loved the Morning Boost though and didn't need to add anything else to it. I'd recommend drinking the tea after you've eaten your breakfast.


The Morning Boost contains Green Tea, Yerba Mate, Nettle Leaves, Dandelion, Guarana Fruit, Grapefruit Leaves, Strawberries and Pineapple. You can see why each ingredient is used on their website. This tea is designed to give you a 'boost' throughout the day and naturally reduces the appetite. Me and my mum both felt more energized when using this, but it wasn't a drastic change. We just felt more lively throughout the day. I would 100% agree with the fact that it naturally reduces the appetite. After college and work, we tend to come home and snack, but this tea allowed us to just stick with our 3 main meals, and we'd have a healthier alternative if we did get hungry. I also found that this tea reduced the amount of sugar I felt like. I'm a huge fan of the Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte. Usually, I'd be able to finish it all off, but after using this tea, I just didn't need as much of it to get the fix I needed.


Then there's the Night Cleanse which you drink every other night. I really loved the effects of this tea, just as much as the morning one. This tea contains Ginger Root, Lemongrass, Senna Leaves and Psyllium Husk... (again you can see their website for more information on these ingredients). As the same suggests, this tea really does cleanse your body. I honestly felt so much lighter and less slugish after using this. It gave me an amazing night's sleep after using it, too! This tea is the one that does the detoxing (if you know what I mean)... You do tend to have a slight increase in flushing which is normal of this product. Sorry, if this is TMI, haha... Can't leave out any important details!



Both me and my mum loved this tea! I definitely think it does everything it says but you will get much better results if you're eating healthy and exercising along side it!

I want to say a huge thank you to the lovely people at SkinnyMint who sent this out to me. I was super intrigued to try it and now I have! I'm actually super upset that the 28 day cycle has ended now, but I feel great after it! Thanks for reading guys, I hope this post interested you! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I'll get back to you asap!

  5. I have wanted to try these teas but have thought that it was just another form of "weight loss" that doesn't actually work. after ready your blog and other reviews, I know think that it is legit and worth a try. :)
