SkinnyMint Inspired Makeup Look + First Impression!

Hello beauty babes and welcome! I am thrilled you popped in today because I have something kind of fun to share with you. I recently started the SkinnyMint 28 day teatox program. This product was sent to me for review, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my first impression on it so far. Then I will follow up with any results I might have once I have completed the program! 

As of writing this, I am just under 2 weeks into the program. SO I do have a bit of info to share for my first impression, but I will get to that in a moment. I also thought it would be fun to incorporate a makeup look inspired by the adorable SkinnyMint packaging! ♥ Many of you may already know I am a sucker for packaging as well as hearts. So I just couldn't resist. Keep reading for all the details.  
A little bit about SkinnyMint 28 Day Teatox Program from their website: 
This program works to detox your body to help you to reach your health goals. It is expertly formulated with all natural high-performing ingredients. The program contains 2 steps, Morning Boost Tea and the Night Cleanse Tea.

Morning Boost
DRINK EVERY MORNING
A special formulation of guarana, Green Tea & Yerba Mate to create a fruity and fresh tea blend.
Expertly created to maximize naturally occurring vitality boosting ingredients.

Night Cleanse
DRINK EVERY 2ND NIGHT
A special Night Time formulation of Ginger root, Lemongrass, Senna leaves, and Psyllium husk, combined to purify and detox the body.
I was instantly intrigued and excited to try this teatox program, as I have never done one before. Plus its always nice to discover something that could help me in my health, fitness and weight-loss goals. Now, even though I have read some reviews saying this product helped people lose weight, as far as I know there are not any claims from the company promising weight loss specifically. But here is some info via their FAQ "Teatoxing helps you to boost your metabolism, flush out toxins, reduce bloating and burn fat." So with that in mind I was excited to see what happens when I incorporate this program into my typical fitness routine. Which for me is typically working out at the gym 2 hours a day, 3 days a week.

Unfortunately for me though that ended up not being able to happen.... If you happen to follow me on snapchat or my personal instagram page, you might have seen that I injured my leg. I tore a muscle in my calf, to be more specific, and I have not been able to really use that leg. :( Super huge bummer for me. This ended up happening the day after I received my SkinnyMint package in the mail. So, without being able to get any full on cardio workouts in (I've still been trying to do some arm workouts at home) this gave me a new opportunity. The chance to see what the SkinnyMint Teatox could do for me on its own, in a way. 

I say "in a way" because I decided to be doing my best to eat right and make healthy food choices as well as portion sizes. Of course I am always trying my best to eat "right". However I tend to be a little more lax when I am keeping up with regular exercise. If you are familiar with me and my weight-loss journey at all, you know that I have admitted to having a food addiction. And its something I still struggle with now and then. So whats great right now about not being able to exercise (always try to find the brighter side) is that I can focus more on making healthier food choices. Drinking the SkinnyMint tea is a very nice reminder of that as well.
Alrighty, enough with the back story... Lets move on to my first impressions! ;)

The Morning Boost is delicious with a subtly sweet fruity taste. I am not big on drinking tea, I typically prefer my (very sweetened) cup of coffee in the morning. However I can drink the morning boost all on its own and still enjoy it. Though some days I will add a little honey if I am craving a little more sweetness. I'll admit, a few days I still craved my coffee... So I had both my tea & coffee in the morning. Yikes! haha Though, what I can say for the days I just had the tea - it was definitely enough for a boost of energy in the morning. It does have caffeine in it. :) I also definitely have noticed a suppressed appetite.

The Night Cleanse has a much stronger spicy kind of flavor, which I honestly do not enjoy on its own. But good spoonful of honey really helps the taste for me. Another idea to help the taste is maybe adding a slice of lemon or other fruit to sweeten it up. The night cleanse contains natural ingredients that "may have a mild laxative effect". Which it did have that effect on me, nothing extreme, just very helpful. 

Over all first impressions are great! And surprise surprise - with just under 2 weeks into it, I have actually lost 2 pounds... Which really did surprise me to no end, considering I have not been to the gym in all that time. So I am excited and hopeful to discover the full results once this program is complete. ♥
Last but not least, let me give you the details on this makeup look! I used all MBA Cosmetics Products and as usual you can use my code AGAPELOVE15 if you'd like to make a purchase and save a little cash. 

Pressed Shadows: Dewdrops, Afterparty, Rumors and Halo.
Loose Shadows: Blushy
Glitter: Obsession + Glitz Fix to create the heart!
False Lashes: Babydoll
HD Lip Paint: Strawberry Ice
Alright beauty babes, I hope you enjoyed this post and found it fun and helpful! I'd love to know if you have ever tried a teatox before, and how it worked for you. ♥ And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
