If you remember back in April I posted all about Beauty & Go and their bioactive beauty drinks, in which during that post I mentioned that I would be trying out the detox drink for one month in order to see how I got on. Well fast forward eight exams later and a little bit of a delayed blog post and here I am with my overall thoughts on the process.
Back when I wrote my original post you may remember that out of all four flavours available it was the detox drink that in my opinion tasted the worst; in fact I actually liked the other three quite a bit so as I began this little experiment I found that I was already off to a bumpy start. Originally I started off with drinking two of these each day however I soon began to really struggle and had to drop down to just one. I am not the sort of person to readily admit defeat so soon yet I honestly found this drink to be really hard to stomach; it quickly developed into something that I would put off until the very last minute of the day.
The detox drink as the name suggests aims to detox and purify the skin as it consists of macro Antioxidants from pomegranate and lemons. It also contains collagen, hyaluronic acid, artichoke, broccoli, orange fibre, cucumber, spirulina algae, dandelion, spinach, mint and nettle, citrulline, natural olive fruit extract, resveratrol, zinc and vitamin C. It is needless to say that this list is full of good stuff. I wanted to love it, I truly did, yet the after taste that this left in my mouth was one I never quite got used to, even after drinking one a day for a whole month.
In regards to any physical improvements I saw I will be honest and say that they were very subtle, I did notice that a few weeks into my challenge that my skin was clearer and that it did indeed look brighter although I am yet to be fully convinced that the detox juice was the reason behind that. I honestly think that things like this ride on so many factors, for example your diet, your stress levels and sleep pattern and indeed whether you exercise or not. Whilst I do think they can be helpful to a certain extent I also think that you need to be putting in effort in every area of your life and not just hoping for a miracle in a bottle as it were.
Despite the fact that I personally did not like the taste of this particular drink I know that others did so it really is one that you need to sample for yourself. Beauty & Go drinks are sold in Selfridges and now Tesco so they should be relatively easy to get hold of if you’re curious about them. On a side note I’d like to add that aside from the detox drink that the other three were really quite lovely, I would have had no trouble drinking those twice a day for a month at all. Overall I am really glad I got to try something like this as I will admit I have always been incredibly curious.
