How to lose the baby weight with Slendertoxtea

How to lose the baby weight with Slendertoxtea

It’s now almost a year since I gave birth to my fantastic baby daughter (where does that time go?) and despite my best intentions to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight as quickly as possible it got to the Summer and I was still a good few pounds above where I wanted to be. I had put on about two stone whilst I was pregnant and about half of that disappeared when I gave birth. I continued to drop another few pounds in the first few weeks of motherhood – partly from breastfeeding and partly from a nasty kidney infection which floored me for a couple of weeks – but then came Christmas and I couldn’t resist indulging, particularly in alcohol which I’d been avoiding for nine months! So a few pounds crept back on and then despite a few attempts in 2016 to eat healthily I hovered around the same weight, feeling stuck. I needed something to give me a bit of a push in the right direction...

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Discovery Kit

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Discovery Kit

Earlier this year I reviewed the fabulous Carrot Scrub Detox from Docteur Renaud here on Beauty Best Friend blog. Docteur Renaud is a French natural cosmetology brand founded in 1947 and is now part of the Nuxe Group. The products all contain active ingredients taken from fruits, vegetables and flowers – some of which include raspberries, apricots, coconut and carrots. As I loved it so much I was recently sent this cute Carrot Discovery Kit* to try out as it contains two carrot moisturisers as well as the Carrot Scrub Detox. The kit, called ‘My Glowing Complexion Programme’, contains a 20ml tube of the Carrot Scrub Detox and mini 5ml samples of both Carrot Radiance Boost Day Cream and Carrot Renewing Night Cream, all nestled together inside a cardboard box decorated with carrots! I won’t go into full detail again about the Carrot Scrub Detox as you can read my full review here. I do have to say though that it’s a great exfoliator and it feels quite luxurious...

Lose weight by drinking tea!

Lose weight by drinking tea!

Unless you’ve been living on the moon you’ve probably heard about the new tea weight loss plans that are currently on the market, whereby you drink a set amount of a specific tea each day and it helps detox your system and aids you in shedding pounds. I have recently been trying out the 14 Day Teatox* from Slendertoxtea, a 100% natural, organic herbal tea which aims to give you increased energy, increased metabolism, less bloating and weight loss. There are 2 parts to the Slendertoxtea Teatox – a Daytox and a Sleeptox. You have one cup of the Daytox tea in the morning, as soon after getting out of bed as possible, using 1 teabag, then you have one cup of the Sleeptox tea every other night using 1 teabag. The Sleeptox gently flushes out your system while you sleep, it’s basically a gentle laxative which sounds a bit scary but it’s all done in a natural way using herbs and ingredients that naturally stimulate the digestive system. I did get a...

Lose weight with Slendertoxtea in just 14 Days

Lose weight with Slendertoxtea in just 14 Days

If you’ve not heard of a Teatox before it’s a detox programme that you undertake just by drinking tea. I was asked to try out the 14 Day Teatox* from Slendertoxtea, and New Year was a perfect time to try it to help rid my body of the excesses of Christmas. The Slendertoxtea Teatox is a 100% natural, herbal tea which aims to give you increased energy, increased metabolism, less bloating and weight loss. There are 2 parts to the Slendertoxtea Teatox, a Daytox and a Sleeptox. You have one cup of the Daytox tea in the morning using 1 teabag, then you have one cup of the Sleeptox tea every other night using 1 teabag. The Sleeptox gently flushes out your system while you sleep. The ingredients of the 2 teas are as follows: Detox – Hawthorn Grain, Red Bean, Sterling Bean, Radish Leaf, Camellia Seed, Camellia Flower, Green Tea, Fennel Seeds Sleeptox – Valerian Root, Large Hawthorn, Red Bean, Sterling Bean, Green Tea, Radish Leaf, Camellia Seed, Fennel Seeds,...

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Scrub Detox

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Scrub Detox

Docteur Renaud is a French natural cosmetology brand founded in 1947, it is now part of the Nuxe Group. The products all contain active ingredients taken from fruits, vegetables and flowers – some of which include raspberries, apricots, coconut and carrots. This New Year I’ve been concentrating on my skincare and the product that I have been trying out is Carrot Detox Scrub*, a paraben-free exfoliating cream that harnesses the power of fresh carrot cells which help to revive the radiance of the complexion. Other ingredients include white clay, jojoba beads and bamboo powder. Anything with ‘detox’ in its name has to be good for New Year, right? I have been using Carrot Scrub Detox once a week. I had imagined the product would be orange in colour given that one of the main ingredients is carrot, but it’s actually white with tiny orange exfoliating grains in it and it has a pleasant sweet vegetable-y scent. It’s quite creamy and soft but the grains do feel quite abrasive on the...

Tiny Tea Teatox

Tiny Tea Teatox

Tea detoxes seem to be all the rage at the moment, so back in July I treated myself to a 28 day Tiny Tea Teatox from Your Tea. The idea of the Teatox is that the balanced herbal blend of tea will nourish and cleanse the digestive system, allowing it to replenish and restore back to its natural state. The cleanse can assist with reducing weight, easing bloating, increasing digestion functionality, improving skin clarity, increasing energy levels and alleviate issues associated with food intolerances – all problems that I’ve had at some point or another. The tea formula is based on Chinese medicinal principles, and Tiny Tea is the only herbal cleanse on the market that does not produce a laxative effect. So how does it work – well, the box contains 84 individually wrapped teabags and you drink 3 per day, 30 minutes before or after meals but not in an evening. I got into a routine with my Teatox, drinking one cup as soon as I got...

Timeless Truth – Face Masks

Timeless Truth – Face Masks

I was actually sent these sheet face masks ages ago but it’s taken me until now to get round to reviewing them. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long, I love face masks and use one every week, but I think I was maybe put off by the fact that these are sheet masks and I thought they might be a bit fiddly to use. The three facial sheet masks that I have here are all from Timeless Truth: Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask, Organic Silk Fibre Elixir Mask and Green Tea Phenol Soothing Mask. If you’re new to sheet masks the idea is this – it’s a piece of fabric that has been soaked in the face mask product (this could be a liquid, gel or cream) and you simple peel off the backing sheet and place it over your face. There are holes for the eyes, nose and mouth so you can still see and breathe. They’re probably a little bit quicker to apply than a...
