Katy Lowry, Felt more refreshed and awake when drinking Skinny Boo Detox Tea.
I’ve just tried the new detox tea called Skinny Boo daytime detox tea which helps you lose weight. You get 30 tea bags for 15 days, 2 cups a day morning and night. The ingredients are oolong tea, mate green, cinnamon, lemon myrtle, nettle leaves and ginger.
When my parcel arrived I was so happy couldn't wait to try it, I liked the packaging, it is silver and pink which goes well together and looks trendy and it’s also resealable which is a bonus so the tea bags stay fresh, the tea bags inside was triangular shape and had all the leaves from the healthy ingredients. The only problem I had was when pouring the hot water my string fell in a couple of times because it was too light, I also was a bit worried that I wouldn't like the taste because I'm not a big fan of lemon but the taste was really nice it wasn't too sweet or strong which I thought it would have been.
You drink the tea two times in the day one in morning and one in evening. Before I tried this tea I have had problems with my energy and I was feeling tired all of the time but I noticed that while drinking this tea I had my energy back, which I was so happy about I felt really refreshed.
As for the weight loss which it's supposed to be for it had no difference for me, it probably will work if you exercise regularly and eat healthy then you may see a difference then, but it's not a miracle product that by taking the tea you will lose weight.
I would recommend because it does make you feel refreshed and awake and you definitely will feel a difference and I loved the taste which I am sure you will. I will definitely be buying again in the future.
Sarah Bousfield, Overall I was happy, 'I enjoyed drinking it and have told all my friends, colleagues and family about it.'
"Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Skinny Boo Daytime Detox Tea for weight loss, I have been trying to lose weight since May and attending Weight Watchers every week so I began testing the day after my weigh in so I knew exactly how much weight I had lost.
When I first saw the Daytime Detox Tea I could see that this was a high quality product from the packaging, the silver metallic packet with the Skinny Boo logo makes it look very classy and expensive. The packaging can be re-sealed which is a great feature as it keeps the tea bags fresh. It states that the product is 100% Natural on the front of the packet and after looking at the ingredients on the back it is confirmed as it only contains Oolang Tea, Mate Green, Cinnamon, Lemon myrtle, Nettle leaves and Ginger. I was expecting lots of chemicals and additives so was pleasantly surprised at the few natural ingredients.
There are 30 tea bags which last 15 days as you have 2 cups a day, every morning and evening although it states that 'if you forget just have a cup when you get a chance'.
The tea bags were the best quality tea bags that I have ever seen, all tea bags should be like this. They were pretty much indestructible and no amount of squeezing or pushing against the side of the cup made any ingredients leak out of them.
I wasn't keen on the smell as my first cup was brewing as the smell of ginger was very strong. I was sure I would be able to smell the cinnamon but throughout the whole testing period I didn't smell or taste cinnamon at all. I left to brew for 5 minutes as advised on the packaging and I really wasn't keen on the taste at first but drank the whole cup.
I sampled my second cup on the evening and still wasn't keen on the taste but was determined to keep testing.
Two days into the trial I added a sweetener to my tea and wish I did this from day one. I also left my tea bag in the cup instead of taking it out after 5 minutes so it tasted a lot stronger. I actually really enjoyed it once I started adding sweetener and leaving the bag in the cup. It does say you can add a spoonful of honey to taste too but I'm not a fan of honey.
Three days into the trial I noticed that I had a massive energy boost so used this to clean my whole house and windows. This energy boost carried on throughout the trial but there was no anxiety or caffeine rush as I sometimes get with coffee.
Six days into the trial I was actually looking forward to having my tea every morning, it had already become part of my routine and I was taking my tea into work to show it off. I went to my weekly weigh in and lost 2.5lbs which I was very pleased with.
For the whole second week of my trial I was full of cold and had a sore throat, I found that the tea helped to sooth my throat but because I felt poorly I wasn't eating as healthily as I usually do, I was dreading getting weighed but hoping that the tea had helped my weight loss so I was quite surprised that I managed to lose half a pound."
Heather Mills, 'I just felt good in general'
"I've recently had a baby and have been struggling to shift my post-baby podge, so I was very keen to give this a try!
First impressions of the packet of Skinny Boo... I like the silver and pink, very eye catching and classy. It felt like it was of good quality. The packet is resealable which is great. I knew the tea bags would remain fresh. As soon as I started to open the packet a lovely aroma was released. Straight away I could tell there was ginger and lemon in there, and then I could smell the cinnamon. It was a lovely, refreshing smell.
I was expecting the tea bags themselves to be just like normal tea bags, but was pleasantly surprised when I removed one from the packet. They are actually made from a material that looks and feels like chiffon or gossamer. I was amazed by the quality. Perhaps one criticism would be the label on the end of the string, it doesn't weigh a thing and gets pulled into the cup as you pour the water in; I soon got into the habit of holding it whilst I filled the cup with water though.
I found the taste of the tea to be very pleasant and refreshing. They do suggest adding a bit of honey to sweeten it if required but I didn't find this necessary. The tea smells a lot stronger than it tastes and I quite liked how it tasted. I enjoyed every cup!
Within a couple of days I didn't feel as tired during the day and I just felt 'good' in general. I definitely felt as though my appetite was suppressed... the urge to snack was barely there most days! I did restrict my diet and ate a lot of fresh fruit and salad. By the end of the first week I felt like I had a lot more energy and was doing a lot of walking every day. At the end of the two weeks I was very happy to see that the scales showed me as being 4lb lighter! Not a huge loss but I had been out for a meal and got given a big cake for my birthday during the two week trial. I was worried this would affect results... so I'm very pleased!"
"I received a package last week from the lovely people at Skinny Boo. I saw a tweet from Skinny Boo and read that they sell what they call 'skinny tea' - I was of course intrigued.
The tea is packaged in a resealable pouch holding 30 pyramids of detox tea. The idea is to drink two a day for 15 days to cleanse your digestive system and aid weight loss (as part of a calorie controlled diet of course, we aren't working miracles here ladies). The tea claims to make you feel energised and motivated to reach your goals - which makes sense if you're swapping your usual milky morning cuppa for...well... a cuppa without milk.
The bags contain oolong tea which increases your metabolism and promotes the burning of fats for energy, cinnamon which calms indigestion and improves energy levels, lemon myrtle (I know this sounds like a character from Harry Potter) which is high in antioxidants, boosting the immune system, mate green, also rich in antioxidants, and ginger, which aids gastrointestinal distress.
I've been drinking the tea twice a day for 6 days now and I must say I feel great. I feel lighter and definitely more determined to make wise choices throughout the day in terms of food/drink." To read more click here
Lois Hidson, ‘I love the Daytime Detox Tea from Skinnyboo'
"I have been drinking this tea for the past two weeks mid-morning and in the evening before bed and I have noticed a big difference to my overall feeling of well-being. The tea has a lovely flavour and I feel better after every cup. In particular I have noticed that the blemishes have cleared up on my face and I have been pleased to feel my clothes fit more comfortably. I would definitely recommend this to a friend."
Aimee Risdon, "I did feel healthier & Lost 5lb"
"So I was lucky enough to be chosen to review the Skinny Boo Detox Tea. When the tea arrived I was very impressed with the packaging, it looks smart and trendy and the silver and pink goes well together, I like that the package has a seal along the top to keep the tea bags fresh as well. So I had a baby 2 months ago and wanted to lose the baby weight along with getting a bit healthy, I read the instructions and you have two cups a day and then I ate dinner of an evening, or you can change it around. I was impressed with the look of the tea bags but the only let down is the string part with the tag isn't weighty enough so a few times it's fallen in my tea. You simmer it for a few minutes before drinking it. It tasted better than I thought but took some getting used to as I'm not a herbal tea drinker. The first few days were the hardest as I was still quite hungry after the tea. But that then goes. It took id say about 5-6 days before I started feeling better and felt like it had started to do something. If I went out anywhere then I could just take one with me. Maybe worth skinny boo looking into a travel pot/bag for them so they don't lose their freshness. After the 15 days were up I did feel healthier and had lost 5lbs. I was over the moon with this. Losing weight and having a detox at the same time is a brilliant idea. As long as you eat healthy with it you will definitely get results. I didn't really do much exercise whilst on the 15 day trial so just goes to show you don't have to hit the gym every day. It would be a product that I would purchase again. Thanks again for choosing me! Aimee."
Stacey Auty, felt cleansed on the inside.
"After having my baby just over 9 months ago I've been trying to lose my remaining baby weight! When I received the tea they were enclosed in a silver packet which was re-sealable to keep the tea fresh which was good.
The ingredients were 100% natural so I knew I wouldn't be drinking anything dodgy which I was pleased about. It says to have two cups of tea a day; one in the morning and one in the evening. Upon tasting the tea for the first time I was pleasantly surprised at how refreshing it was. You were also able to add honey to taste if required but I didn't feel the need I enjoyed the taste. The teabags were a pyramid shape and you could see what was inside the tea bag also with some teabags you get bits at the bottom but with Skinny Boo you don’t which was great! After a few days I felt as if I had more energy even my partner noticed which to me was a good sign I also felt cleansed on the inside I weighed myself before and after and have lost a little weight which I am pleased about. I would recommend the tea to people who are willing to put in time to exercise as I only did walking and skipping but i am still pleased with my results."
Tracey Knight, Skinny Boo Helped me to lose 6lb!
“Here is my write up.
I was a little apprehensive trying Skinny Boo Tea, I have been dieting for a while now and although I have lost 5 stone for the past year my weight has stabilised. The tea is great, it tastes just like a mild flavoured herbal tea.
The packaging is great, eye catching and easy to reseal which kept the tea fresh.
Drinking the tea in the morning and before bed for 2 weeks with a slow calorie diet helped me to lose 6lb which I am really pleased about.
I enjoyed the tea so much I would be happy to continue drinking Skinny Boo Detox Tea every day.”
Maria Paton, felt much more awake and energized all day!
"First of all I would like to thank Product Testing for the opportunity to test and review the Skinny Boo Detox Tea. It’s a current goal of mine to lose weight so I was over the moon when I got picked to test out this product. When Skinny Boo arrived in the post, the Skinny Boo Detox Tea bags were enclosed in a silver packet.
The great thing about the package was that it had a re-sealable top, which ensured that the teabags were kept fresh inside the packet. On reading the information on the front of the packet, it says “100% Natural”. This assured me that all the ingredients were genuinely good for me without any hidden ingredients, so my hopes were set high for this product.
On tasting the Skinny Boo tea for the first time, I came to find it to be a bland taste but could sense the subtle hint of the lemon myrtle and a slight ginger taste. I find lemon very refreshing so it was a pleasant taste for me. However, after a few days the bland taste did get boring, so I added half a teaspoon of honey to the tea (this was suggested on the back of the Skinny Boo packet) to sweeten the taste. This did work, so I altered having one with the added honey and one without through the process of my testing.
The packet consisted of 30 tea bags. The instructions on the packet were to have 2 cups of Skinny Boo tea a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, so the packet lasted me 15 days.
The teabags are pyramid-shaped, made from bio-degradable material, in which you can see the loose leaf tea blended with the other ingredients. One thing I hate with normal teabags is that they are so fragile that they can rip very easily, however this problem has not occurred with Skinny Boo which must show the quality of the teabags.
It was only after about a week of drinking the tea that I felt a slight difference. I felt much more awake and energized all day. I didn't really notice a difference in my weight, however I felt detoxed on the inside, like my insides felt very healthy, which made me feel slimmer in myself. It states on the packet that this tea must be drunk as part of a healthy diet.
During the process of testing this product, I cut back on my portion sizes, I cut out fizzy drinks and sugary snacks and apart from the 2 cups of Skinny Boo tea a day, I would drink water, and I also ate a lot of fruit each day instead of my usual chocolate biscuits. I also made sure I did some light exercise a day.
Overall, I am so glad I got the chance to try this Skinny Boo tea. Even though I was expecting to lose a lot of weight, I was still pleasantly surprised that the tea made me feel a lot more energized, and gave me the cleanest, detoxed feeling inside.
I would recommend Skinny Boo Tea, but only if someone is truly dedicated to maintaining a healthy diet while drinking the tea."
Sarah Graham, Hull lost an amazing 5 stone over 11 months!
“Within the first few days of drinking Skinny Boo I knew it was doing something, I felt like I had more energy and my metabolism was increasing!
Before I lost the weight, when I went out I always wore large oversized clothes to cover myself up because I was so self-conscious of my weight, all of my friends could fit into amazing dresses when going on nights out and it made me feel down and depressed. Now I can’t wait to slip into a tightly fitting dress and I feel amazing!
As soon as I found Skinny Boo Detox Tea I thought this has got to be too good to be true, a weight loss tea that can help you to lose weight without going on a strict diet! But the teatox has been so effective for me, I can still treat myself to the odd snack and not feel guilty about it. I do eat smaller portions of food and tend to eat little and often, I now walk to the train station every morning and evening and I like to complete the ab challenges which Skinny Boo advise to do to keep you toned and in shape, I find this is a lot better than having to go to the gym every week.
My friends now ask to borrow my clothes and people who I haven’t seen in ages can’t believe it’s me! I’d definitely keep drinking Skinny Boo Detox Tea and would recommend to anyone who wants to go on a teatox lifestyle change, Skinny Boo has changed my life for the better and I love keeping up to date with their tips and challenges."
