Review | Skinnymint 28 Day Teatox

Yayyyyy! I've finally finished my Skinnymint teatox!

So today is the day where there were tears of joy rolling down my cheeks after glancing in my morning boost and night cleanse packet and seeing that they were both empty. (Well there weren't really tears...I just felt incredibly relieved that my program had finally came to an end haha.)


My empty Skinnymint 28 day teatox programme and my final 'Morning Boost' teabag.

As I had started my Skinnymint teatox before I was planning to create this blog, there are no before and after pictures that I can show you. Yesssss I know it's annoying because when I read reviews, I would normally look for blog posts that feature before and after photos so I totally understand how you're probably huffing and puffing right now. However, to make up for it (if you haven't crossed me off your browser already), I'm going to do a thorough detailed review for you guys and be 100% completely honest :)

As I'm sure you lovely people have already done a bit of research on Skinnymint, I'm not going to bore you with the science and technology of how this teatox works. I'm going to get down to the nitty-gritty stuff, so sit back and read with a nice cup of tea because trust me, you'll eventually realise throughout the teatox how good a cup of the ol' tea taste like.

Last Morning Boost tea!

HERE WE GO!

Delivery: 2/5 ✮✮☆☆☆

Oh my god. The delivery for my Skinnymint to reach my doorstep was totally ridiculous. On Skinnymint's website, it stated that it would roughly take around 4-5 business days for it to be delivered to the UK for FREE. So when the first week passed and there were no sign of my teatox, I started to get a bit agitated. After doing a bit of research, I'd found that there were actually quite a lot of complaints with their delivery, so it was a slight relief to know that it wasn't just me experiencing it. Also, what was annoying was that Skinnymint gave me a tracking number to track where my parcel was with their courier and after it updating a couple of times, it literally stopped at 'At Singapore depot' or something like that. So after religiously checking the tracker every day and there were still no update, I gave up counting the days and literally forgot about even ordering it.

THEN...out of nowhere, after nearly THREE weeks...it came. So yeah, I have to give them 2 stars for delivery because they did give false information on the website. If it was just me experiencing this, then I could totally understand that it could've been a one-off thing. But as it's been reported that many people have been experiencing this issue as well as myself, Skinnymint really do need to spruce up their game with their delivery and update their delivery information on their website to stop giving the customer false hopes.

Price: 3/5 ✮✮✮☆☆

I wanted to do the Skinnymint 28 day teatox program rather than the 14 days because I knew I wanted to go into this hardcore and shred off those extra few pounds that my dissertation caused before getting into my bikini for my upcoming US trip.

I got the 'Besties Value Teatox (2x28)' for me and my sister-in-law. This is the best value for you and a friend because it works out to be £26.45 each for the teatox, which is way cheaper than the full price of £32.90 for a standard single pack of the 28 day teatox. For the price, I rated it 3 stars because I thought £26.45 was reasonable. However, I do think that the original price of £32.90 for a single pack is a bit steep and to be honest I wouldn't have paid for it if the full priced pack was the only option. So guys, I really do recommend you to find a family member or a friend who wants to do the program as well as you before buying, as it is a lot more value for money if you both buy the 'Besties Value' pack.

Taste: 3/5 ✮✮✮☆☆

For the taste, I rated it 3 stars. Being a serious English tea and Green tea addict, I thought that I would really like the taste of Skinnymint...but I didn't. The first couple of days, I was okay with the taste. I have to be honest though, the 'Morning Boost' didn't taste like strawberries at all, nor was it 'Yummy' as many people claimed. You could smell a hint of fruit but it definitely does not taste like what it smelt. Don't get me started on the 'Night Cleanse' taste though. That one was not very nice at all. It had a slight tingling feeling to the back of my throat and left a bad aftertaste afterwards. It was tolerable but scoring it on taste only, I didn't find it pleasant to drink at all. What I had found myself doing throughout the whole course of the teatox program was that I was literally downing the drinks as soon as they have cooled down because I started getting sick of the taste. Please do take into consideration that I don't like drinking fruit tea in general, which is why I probably found the teatox hard to drink. If you do like drinking fruit tea normally, you probably would like the taste or would find it easier to drink the tea than I did. However, if you don't then I would recommend you to use my trick of downing it like a true warrior haha. Seriously though, Skinnymint's taste is tolerable, much more tolerable than rival teatox brand Bootea. My mum did Bootea last year and I had a sip of her daytime and night time tea and eughhhhh...it was absolutely vile, which is why I gave Skinnymint 3 stars and not 2 stars.

Results: 4/5 ✮✮✮✮☆

So...the bit that you've been wanting to know...did I lose weight with Skinnymint? HELL YEAH I DID! ;) I'm going to be completely honest with you lot, from the day I had started my teatox, I weighed in at 58kg (9.1st) and today when I'd checked after completing my program...

My weight after completing the Skinnymint 28 day teatox program '53.9kg.'

YES! YOU READ RIGHT! 53.9kg (8.4st)! To be honest, I couldn't believe it because I was initially pretty skeptical with the whole concept of teatoxing. This is what I had found:

  • I lost an overall 4.1kgs (9lb) by doing absolutely NOTHING.

  • I stopped snacking throughout the day and night. Not too sure if that was because of the Skinnymint tea or because I started drinking 2 litres of water a day regularly.

  • A huge increase in energy. This was no joke, normally I'd always get that straining headache feeling on the side of my head in the morning due to lack of energy but whilst doing this detox, the 'Morning Boost' really did keep me energised and feeling awake throughout the whole day.

  • With bloating, there wasn't much significant difference because I don't really get bloated normally...Unless I ate like a horse.

So there you have it! I hope this review was insightful and helpful to you. I really wish I had before and after pictures to show you but I hope that my detailed review made up for it. I really do recommend Skinnymint due to the results it gave me and there is really no harm in trying! Make sure you stick to it though and be disciplined with the teatox to achieve the best results. There were so many times when I wanted to give up because I found it such a chore haha. But yeah, if I can do it, you can too!

Let me know how you're getting on! If you've already done the program, let me know how you found it :)

  1. This is the first I've heard about this specific brand of teatox - your results were amazing! I'm just a green tea lover too but I've yet to try one of these types of detox's, I might try this one so thanks for the heads up about the delivery! X

  2. Thank you! You should definitely try it! It's only a program so it's only short term. If you don't know if you'll like it, SkinnyMint offers a 14 day teatox instead of the full 28 day one. So definitely look in to that and match it with what you're looking to gain from it :) x
