The Skinnyteatox took a little while to arrive, but since I was already in the midst of doing the Tinyteatox I didn’t mind. Emma, the girl who sent me the sample also let me know that sometimes the post office can take awhile to deliver since the packaging contains organic products. Different than the Tinyteatox it came in a box with everything inside. The packaging resembles Teavana a bit with the fact being that these teas are looseleaf. The only tea that is in a tea bag is the nighttime tea that you take every other day. I was also gifted with a cute loose tea leaf steeper that I love and will keep forever!
For this review I did weight myself before because I knew I’d be working out and eating better, so I could get a more reasonable idea of how this tea has been helping me!
Weight Before: 115lbs
How Skinnyteatox is Different
Skinnyteatox tea, like most other detox teas, has a loose leaf daytime tea and a nighttime tea that comes in a tea bag. This is the tea that contains senna leaf and causes laxative-like affects. The daytime tea you drink every day while the nighttime tea is every other day.
Day 1: Day 1 was pretty easy, I took some loose leaf day tea, which I really like the taste of. It has a green tea fruity taste to it. Pretty nice. I didn’t do the nighttime tea today, I will do that one tomorrow and then every other day after that. I was also given a chocolate fat free tea, so I tried a cup of that in the afternoon. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it because I’ve tried teavana teas that were chocolately and wasn’t a fan, but I really liked this one! Interesting taste.
Day 7: Halfway through and I’m feeling great! The after affects of the nighttime tea is unpleasant, but it passes within a few hours of waking up. Skinnyteatox suggests drinking the tea before going to bed so your body has a chance to digest. This was a great idea! I don’t recommend taking the tea the night before you have something to do early in the morning, because I personally was headed to the bathroom frequently during my English Final.
Day 14: Day 14 is here and I am happy with my results. During this teatox I made sure to eat healthy and exercise, so my results were pretty good. Similar to the TinyTea teatox I did before this one, my bloating is gone! I feel like the Skinnyteatox was nice to get a good detox out of due to it’s laxative affects, but I don’t think it would be good to use it frequently. Studies show that Senna root (the main ingredient in the nighttime detox tea) can have adverse affects over a long period of time. But that’s why this 14 – Day teatox is perfect if you need a quick metabolism boost or if you’re feeling bloated or clogged.
Packaging: The packaging is cute and simple. It resembles Teavana in the way that the loose leaf are in small silver packets with Skinnyteatox tea’s logo on the front.
Taste: I really like the taste of the daytime tea! It’s fresh and
Quality: The quality of the tea seems to be very good.
Pros from other customers: I am finished with the teatox and feeling great! I lost 1-2lbs off of my mid-section and feel totally bikini ready! I will certainly do another Skinny Teatox again in the future.
Packaging: No cons on the packaging.
Taste: I don’t really like the taste of the nighttime tea, but a little honey and lemon makes it a lot better.
Cons from other customers: “Senna has a strong laxative effect and it can cause headaches, diarrhoea, vomiting and dehydration,” Leonard-Stainton.

Results: So after 2 weeks of using the SkinnyTea detox program, I lost 5 lbs! I have been eating very healthy and still have a high energy level. I do not really enjoy the nighttime tea however, the stomach cramps and diarrhea associated with it are rather unpleasant. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and keeping hydrated so you don’t get sick while taking the senna root tea. As long as you are properly hydrated, you shouldn’t have any issues! Thank you SkinnyTeatox!
