Herbal Face Food is the worlds first completely edible, 100% plants only skin serum. An ORAC antioxidant rating of over 10 million cause healing of skin, making it the most potent and powerful anti-aging product on the market. Herbal Face Food serum is made from plants that contain antioxidants and enzymes, from all around the globe.

I was sent a 0.5oz dropper bottle of the Herbal Face Food serum by the company and I have been using it for weeks now! Almost a month and the bottle is still almost full – incredible! The 2 oz full sized version will probably last you forever.

IMG_1855
This comes in a liquid consistency and I only use about 4-5 drops of it and it covers my entire face!(I tend to apply slightly more since I don’t use it everyday) I use this every other night as personally, for my teenage skin, I feel that this is like a treatment instead of a serum.
Upon application, there’s a tingly sensation around my cheeks area and sometimes even my entire face! To some people, it might be slightly uncomfortable. However, that’s when you know that the serum is actually doing its job! On top of that, it will only last for about 1-2minutes. πŸ™‚

(This amount on my hand is actually only one drop. As you can see, a little goes a really long way!)
The next morning when I wake up, my face definitely got brighter and I’m not sure if I’m seeing things, but my pigmentations actually got lighter as well! It’s insanity and basically heaven in a bottle. I’m not sure what I’d do without this product!

Moving on to the most exciting part – the verdict
YES YES YES! I would most definitely repurchase this. It’s a little more pricey than other serums but it’s so worth it! It will last me a very long time. This retails for USD99.97 for the 2oz bottle.

Organic Herbal Face Food also offer a stronger version of the original herbal face food, the Organic Super Face Food! How exciting. However, I would advise you to try the original version first to see if it is enough for your skin. If it isn’t, super it is!
The company also launched their Herbal Body Food which I’m sure is equally amazing.
They currently have different bundles, some at discounted prices which you can check out at WWW.THEHERBALFACEFOOD.COM πŸ™‚

Transformational, Organic and All Natural foods? YES YES AND YES!

Today, I’m going to be doing a review of 3 amazing products by Sun Potion. Firstly, I would like to thank the lovely Scott and Nitsa for the great customer service and sending me these products to review!

So What is Sun Potion?

We work with suppliers who can meet our stringent quality standards and commitment to purity.

After reading about them, I honestly wouldn’t mind consuming their products for the rest of my life. After all, it can only do my body good!

Moving on to the review, the first product is Ashitaba.

It is a Raw Vegan Blood Tonic and a Traditional Japanese Healing food, consumed for Beauty & Longevity.
It is a Rich Source of Vitamin B12 which helps with the Skin and Digestive system! It contains Chalcones and Shen- Spirit Tonic. This is my favourite product out of the 3! Actually, I can’t really say that because all of them works wonders for me! This product, in particular is a miracle. It cleared my skin about 1-2weeks after adding 1/2 teaspoon(2g) of this heaven sent powder into my chamomile tea, every other day. I cannot say how thankful I am to Sun Potion for producing this product!

It is a light green coloured powder. To me, it smells sweet and maybe a little bit like green tea powder. This comes in a 80g jar, and retails for USD$49.99.

The next product would be Ashwagandha.

“Ashwagandha is a vital herb in Ayurvedic Medicine with a long history of therapeutic use and is sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng” . The plant contains a full spectrum of healing properties in its roots, flowers, leaves, and fruit and it flourishes in dry regions in India, northern Africa, and the Middle East (though some farmers have had recent success cultivating it in the US). We source from small organic farms in Northern India offer an organic cold-water extract of the Ashwagandha Root, which is reputed to be the most potent part of the plant”
This product is suppose to tonify the immune system, inspire vigour and strength, increase the bodys’ levels of super oxide dismutase, harmonise mind, body & spirit and last but not least, Reduce the effects of mental, emotional, and physical stress.

Everyone around me was getting sick and unfortunately, the virus was passed on to me and I had a really bad fever and flu after. When I get sick, it’s really a torture. I usually wouldn’t fully recover till about a month later. However, with the consumption of Ashwagandha, I fully recovered in 2 weeks! Also, exams, tests and projects were never ending but with this, I felt more positivity in me and planned my time well, calming me down, making sure I make the right decisions! I LOVE the smell of this powder! It smells very herbal to me, probably due to the Indian Ginseng. Same as Ashitaba, I add 1/2 a teaspoon into my chamomile tea every other day. I alternate between Ashitaba and Ashwagandha. This comes in a 111g Jar and retails for USD$36.99.

Last but not least, Shea Butter(Wildcrafted).
image5
Sun Potions’ Shea Butter is a 100% Wildcrafted and unrefined skin food. It balances skin PH, contains minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids. It also opens cells to draw moisture in, retain the hydration and allow skin to breathe!
Use of Shea butter may reduce fine wrinkles & assist in healing conditions such as: sun damage, blemishes, psoriasis, eczema, acne, severe skin dryness, chapping, scrapes, burns, skin allergies, fungal infections & more.

This shea butter is really moisturising. I use it as a body moisturiser and a leave in cream for my hair. I find that it works really well in keeping my hair soft and it also reduces split ends, making my hair feel and look healthier. I initially thought that it might be too oily for my skin in this humid weather in Singapore. Fortunately, it soaks into my skin like a dream and does not leave an oily film/layer on top! Shea Butter actually hardens in colder temperature and melts in the warmth of my hands. It also has a slight nutty scent. This comes in a pretty huge 222g Jar and retails for USD$24.99.

In conclusion, I really LOVE Sun Potions’ products as they are organic and 100% Natural. These products are probably going to last me a long time and I hope I will never run out of it!

Step #1:
MORNING BOOST
photo-3
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™‚

They have 14 day and 28 day teatox programmes.
IMG_6647.JPG
The 14 day teatox is priced at USD 29.90 (SGD 37.46) and the 28 day teatox is priced at USD 54.90 (SGD 68.79).
Not forgetting, theres FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING VIA COURIERS as well!! πŸ™‚
My tea was delivered very efficiently – Only a day after they emailed me asking for my address!
If you’re a starter and would just like to try it out first, you could get the 14 day teatox! However, I would recommend the 28 day teatox for maximum effects!

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.”
