Step #1:
MORNING BOOST

Personally, I really love the taste of this! You must be wondering, it’s just tea, how good can it taste right?
Well, it’s not just any ordinary tea. It contains Green Tea, Yerba Mate, Nettle leaves, Dandelion, Guarana fruit, Grapefruit leaves, Strawberry and Pineapple. Hence, it tastes really fruity and smells really good!!
Green tea and Yerba Mate contains caffeine, Guarana and Grapefruit leaves contains natural energizers giving you that boost of energy that you need every morning when you’re waking up for school/work.
Dandelion and Nettle leaves contain purifying agents & Strawberry and Pineapple contain Vitamins.
In conclusion, the Morning Boost increases energy, reduces appetite, burns fat and contain antioxidants!

How To Use?
Put 1 tea bag in nearly boiling water for 4-5mins and drink before/after breakfast, then whenever you want during the day to keep energy levels up. Avoid after 5pm, as it contains caffeine.
Enjoy cold with ice, lime & orange slices and fresh mint for a cool alternative.
*Morning boost tea bags can be reused throughout the day! Make full use out of every tea bag so as to not waste any remaining goodies in it. πŸ™‚

When to take it?
Every morning when you wake up! If you forget, fret not! Just take it anytime before 5pm.

STEP #2:
NIGHT CLEANSE
This tea tastes like medicinal teas(in a good way). It smells and tastes really herbal, but as you are drinking it, you can literally taste the detoxifying effect that the tea is giving to your body.
It comprises of the following ingredients:
Ginger Root (Anti-bloating, Detoxifying)
Orange leaves (Improves digestion, Promotes good sleep)
Lemon Grass (Anti-microbial, Anti-bacterial, Enhances complexion)
Senna Leaves (Natural laxative, Anti-bloating, reduces appetite)
Peppermint (Soothes, Stimulates digestion)
Licorice root (Relieves from cramps and constipation)
Hawthorn Berries (Natural Diuretic, Anti-anxiety)
Psyllium Husk (Natural Laxative, lowers cholestrol, boost’s colon’s health)

All in all, Night cleanse detoxifies, reduce bloating, boosts immunity and improves digestion.

HOW TO USE?
Put 1 teabag in nearly boiling water for 2-3 mins before bed. The laxative effect will occur between 6-8 hours depending on your body. Infuse longer to increase the effect.

WHEN SHOULD YOU TAKE IT?
Every 2nd night before bed starting Day 1 for the duration of the Teatox.

Now that I have filled you in with all the details of SkinnyMint, here are my thoughts:

Morning boost: I think that it indeed helps with boosting my metabolism, because throughout the day when I’m constantly drinking the tea, I felt a sense of hunger in my tummy. However, that doesn’t mean more meal intakes a day! When I’m hungry, I will consume fruits and other healthy snacks to combat hunger: Not only will it make me feel less hungry, it will also be very healthy for my body.
Apart from boosting my metabolism, it also gives me that surge of energy that I need every morning! When I first started my teatox, I had a paper to take later in the day. I felt like I had the energy I needed for my paper. It not only makes me energized, it also helps to make my brain work better! Sounds insane, but it’s true! Tried and tested. πŸ˜‰

Night Cleanse: It took me awhile to get used to the chinese medicinal taste and scent that this tea brings, but I did eventually. All I can say is, the laxatives took effect on me for sure! Hence, I felt like my body was really detoxified!

With all that being said, I will recommend anyone who would like to embrace a healthier lifestyle to give Skinny Mint a try! There is no harm trying really, all it will do is GOOD. πŸ™‚

β€œI’ve always liked the famous Latin quotation: “Mens sana in corpore sano” often translated as “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. Without those two balanced, we can’t reach optimal health. So what I do is to get your mind inspired, get to use all your senses again, feel, breathe, smell, taste and touch. This what I want. You have to be inspired and fired up inside to take steps to change your habits and lifestyle in another direction.”
