For the past one month or so, there was an advert on my Facebook timeline that keep on appearing out of no where. I click on it and I was directed to SkinnyMint Facebook page. I don’t know how or why but SkinnyMint is kinda taking the female world by flash. Who doesn’t want to lose weight by just drinking tea right? So I decided to get the 14 Day Starter Teatox Pack to try. Initially I wanted to go ahead with 28 Day Ultimate Teatox and my friend Cynthia told me to get the 14 Day Teatox instead just in case I don’t like.
Yesterday was my 10th day of the 14 Day Teatox program so I thought I could quickly tell you what I think about spending RM98.35 on the tea before I ran out of tea bags for photo lol.
SkinnyMint is a new Teatox program that helps you to detoxify and lose weight at the same time. But it’s not as easy as brewing a cup of SkinnyMint tea and you’ll lose weight magically. It is recommended to implement some exercise routine together with the program and then change the type of food intake so that Teatox will work even more better.
Prior before ordering, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on SkinnyMint. Almost all sponsored blogger said it works on them and some just review it on the base without any proper review or before and after comparison. One thing for sure is that all of them commented saying the taste for Morning Boost is actually yummylicious. The Morning Boost tea taste fruity to me. It does taste just like normal tea, except that it is more fragrant. I usually infused the tea bag up to four times because it is one hell of a costly tea to begin with so I’m sure no one would infuse it once and throw it away. You can infuse the tea bag until the color and taste turns bland. I don’t go for more than four cups because the tea makes me pee the whole morning, almost once every 10 minutes. It’s insane! I also learnt that the tea contain 70% of caffeine. I sacrificed my morning coffee intake with Morning Boost as it has to be taken before or during breakfast. Maybe because of the four cups of tea that I take every morning, I didn’t feel sleepy but instead super energized. I was up and running the whole day without stopping. What I don’t like is that the tea makes me half asleep and half awake at night. I couldn’t get into deep sleep like before.
What I found out about the Morning Boost tea from their website is that it suppress the appetite naturally and this resulted in reducing hunger pangs. I would say it’s true to a certain point. It really depends on whether I took heavy breakfast or not in the morning. By heavy I don’t mean nasi lemak or any of those food. I meant larger quantity of food. To begin with, I wasn’t a big eater at all. I’m not a fan of food and I’m not a foodie. My breakfast, lunch and dinner is at a moderate amount. I would spend my money on better breakfast but for lunch I eat less unless I didn’t have any breakfast then you will see me eating more than usual for lunch. As for dinner, I sometimes skip it. When I don’t, I take just half a cup of rice. Ever since I started the program, I changed my lunch to a full salad meal. I notice how some people can eat a whole big salad bowl for lunch but I take probably 1/4 of the amount. Dinner is where I let loose a little bit. I took just a few spoonful of rice with some dish to go with it. In conclusion, I eat even less than before. Probably more than half less. I also did a bit of exercise as well.
Night Cleanse is the part of the program that prevent me from getting SkinnyMint earlier. I just don’t like the diarrhoea effect from detox. I also read that it taste quite bad. It has a laxative scent to the tea because it contain lemongrass, ginger and lemon. I also taste mint in the tea. I don’t quite like the taste as well so I add in some honey to improvise the taste. Night Cleanse tea is to be taken on alternate days, right before bed time. The laxative will only work 6-8 hours after that. I’ve read that some people go to the toilet up to six times a day for the first few days. On me, it doesn’t work anything like that. Not even near. I had minor tummy ache the next morning and it was just a normal toilet visit for me. No major detoxifying or diarrhoea for me. What I don’t like about this Night Cleanse is how it gave me stomachache and cramps every day the whole day. And the best part is, I didn’t have any bowel urge ever since I’m on salad and ever since I eat less. Nothing to cleanse perhaps?
The question is why does some users lose weight but I don’t? Before SkinnyMint 14 Day Teatox, I had a very normal and smooth bowel movement every day. I don’t suffer from constipation like all other SkinnyMint user. They said it cleared their constipation issue but it was the other way round for me. My bowel movement stopped after the second Night Cleanse. It stress the heck of me. When I reached Day 7, my tummy was less bloated but since my bowel movement stopped, my tummy is bloated and bigger than before I started the program. Now that I’m left with 4 days worth of tea, I’m not expecting anything anymore from the tea. I just want to finish the program the soonest possible and that’s it.
Is it worth to try?
I say it depends on your body. For me it’s a total waste of money as it doesn’t work for me a bit. Some people that may suffer from bad bloating issue or constipation may experience a better result. I was very surprised to read from SkinnyMint Facebook and Instagram that most user have constipation issue. These are the people that may see result. I mean it’s pretty normal to see a “flatter stomach” when you managed to detox all the gunk out the intestines after so long right? I can’t say it’s not worth to try. Just because it doesn’t work on me doesn’t mean it will not work on you as well. I say if you have the budget to spend on, go ahead. This has been one of my most regretted purchase ever.
Has anyone tried SkinnyMint before? How does it fares on you? Would you spend near to RM100 for this if you haven’t?
