But not so: according to the website those two bottles should only last for sixty days, and we wondered what we should be doing with those leftover capsules, and whether or not that was just a little mathematical glitch. Like the one that made us think the product really works in just five days. So we looked a little deeper into Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules, and this is what we found.
Flawlessbeautyandskin.com tells us that Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules work by reducing appetite and increasing lipolysis with the “most advanced fat burning formula possible”, using 5 distinct metabolic processes to reduce both fat and cellulite deposits and maximize healthy fat loss. The company also tells us that the product “helps lighten and soften skin”, too, which may or may not be such good news for people looking to shed a few surplus pounds.
We found many side effects for the individual ingredients, ranging from digestive problems such as nausea, stomach ache and diarrhea … to drowsiness … jitters … insomnia … “unexpected weight gain” … muscle problems … liver problems … sexual problems and one study even included death.
You can get 2 bottles each containing 90 capsules – supposedly a total of 60 days’ supply – from flawlessbeautyandskin.com for $28.95. However, if you’re a little dubious about the product because of the dubious math, you could always order a free sample of Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules just to try them out first.
We were quite impressed (but for all the wrong reasons) by this statement on the company’s guarantee page: “Our products are made using high-quality all-natural ingredients, so results become apparent at a slow, healthy rate”. Talk about playing it safe. And that’s why we couldn’t find any kind of indication of just how slowly those results appear. Five days? Out of the question.
Maybe this was why bottles of Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules were being sold in pairs, just to give them time to work and users to discover how long it took those results to became apparent.
So it seems those magic “5 days” in the Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules’ name has nothing to do with how fast the product works.
We looked at the ingredient list, and found another little mathematical anomaly: one part of the website says capsules contain 150mg of griffonia simplicifolia seed extract, while another part says they only contain 100mg … and on the ingredient list on the free sample packet they tell us we’re only getting 50mg. Not impressed. And we’re not too sure what to make of that plant being on the FDA’s poisonous plant database in the first place.
Some authorities recommend not taking another ingredient – bitter orange powder – with any herbs or supplements that speed up the heart rate, which doesn’t bode well if two of the major ingredients just happen to be caffeine-laden extracts of green coffee and green tea.
All in all, Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules either add up to too much in terms of caffeine and increased heart rate, or don’t add up at all in terms of those five misplaced days or the differing amounts of griffonia simplicifolia seed extract, so we’re going to reject it. Which we would have done anyway, even if they had spelled one particular ingredient correctly.
It only had four letters.
But they didn’t.

Question: if we’re only supposed to take two capsules a day, how come we’re told that each bottle contains 90 capsules … and those 90 capsules work out to being a 30-day supply? Someone, somewhere, needs to change the batteries in their calculator – and fast.
There are too many discrepancies in the amount of griffonia simplicifolia contained in Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules dotted around the company’s website. And it’s a bit scary when a company can’t get a four-letter acronym right when it’s one of the ingredients here: a constituent of green tea extract is referred to as “EFCG”, which should read “EGCG”. It’s only four letters. They should have got that right.
The company’s additional claim that Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules also lighten and soften skin is a bit strange, considering they’re being marketed as a weightloss product.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule twice a day. Which if you have a bottle of 90 capsules that’s supposed to be a 30-day supply, doesn’t make that much sense.
We’re told one of the ingredients – bitter orange – shouldn’t be mixed with herbs or supplements that speed up the heart rate. This could worry some people who are totally hooked on their daily coffee fix, and that’s maybe why the company advise users not to take any additional caffeine.
Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules also contain maltodextrin, which in too many cases is derived from GMO corn these days. The company doesn’t say how much maltodextrin is in each capsule, because it’s carefully listed under the heading of “Other ingredients” and that’s all they’re saying about it. And that’s disturbing, considering this is a weightloss product and one of the side effects of maltodextrin can be “unexplained weight gain”.
Oh, and as far as we’ve managed to find out, there’s been no scientific studies where raspberry ketone have been tested on humans.
Tested on rats, yes, but on humans – no.
Well, this is what the company says they do, and we quote:
- It works by Reducing Appetite and Increasing Lipolysis
- Most advanced botanical fat burning formula available
- Uses 5 distinct metabolic processes to maximize healthy fat loss
- Reduced fat & cellulite deposits
- Helps lighten and soften skin.
Well, we weren’t too happy about the varying amounts of griffonia simplicifolia seed extract each Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsule supposedly contains – especially since it’s on the FDA’s poisonous plant database.
So we took a look at the other ingredients individually and found that yes, there’s a good possibility that each of them would work quite well all by itself.
For example, the caffeine in green coffee extract is going to help you burn off existing calories faster, while green tea extract raises the body’s metabolism and curbs the appetite.
Garcina cambogia also boosts the body’s fat-burning ability, as well as blocking signals to store calories as fat and raising serotonin levels to keep you stress free – meaning, presumably, reduced stress-related fat accumulation and storage and possibly a lot less need for comfort eating. Or is it just to reduce those caffeine-induced jitters?
The structure of raspberry ketone is close to those of capsaicin, the substance which puts the “hot” into hot peppers and boosts the rate at which the body burns fat … and it’s also close to that of synephrine, otherwise known as bitter orange. And that’s already one of the ingredients of Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules.
So it’s a fair guess to say that the ingredients have been shown to work by themselves, but we get the feeling that when they’re all mixed up like this, it can be too much of a good thing, and we’re more biased towards “enough is enough”.
Halal, Kosher, Vegan and cGMP Certified.
We checked out individual ingredients to see what potential side effects they might have, and it was an eye-opener, to say the least.
OK, so the caffeine in the green coffee bean extract causes the same kind of side effects as too many cups of joe too close together, as in headaches, upset stomach, jitters and an abnormal heart rhythm – the same way raspberry ketone can affect a person.
Green tea extract can cause side effects like nausea, bloating, gas and diarrhea, with the addition of dizziness, agitation and insomnia.
The stakes got higher when we looked at the potential side effects of garcinia cambogia. Again, there’s the possibility of digestion problems, and dizziness, but as well as those you could find yourself suffering from a dry mouth or a headache.
However, back in 2009 the FDA warned people to stop using one particular weightloss product which contained garcinia cambogia because some users developed serious liver problems.
Whether that had to do with the garcinia cambogia or some other ingredient – or even a mix of the two – nobody’s still quite certain. Some researchers say it’s not going to harm your liver, while others say it could.
Griffonia simplicifolia is on the FDA’s poisonous plant database, which doesn’t exactly inspire much confidence to start with, but with potential side effects such as heartburn, digestion problems, drowsiness, muscle problems and what researchers coyly call “sexual problems” we think there’s an awful lot of risk involved here.
And as for bitter orange powder, it’s recommended that you shouldn’t take it with any herbs or supplements that speed up the heart rate. Well, that’s really helpful when there’s so much caffeine in Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules already – especially when the powder’s listed side-effect risks include stroke, irregular heartbeat, heart attack and, er …death.
On a lighter note – if that’s possible – it would help to know just how much maltodextrin Body Beauty Plus 5 Days Slimming Coffee Capsules contain, and not just because almost all the maltodextrin used in supplements these days comes from genetically modified corn. There’s also the possibility of it causing allergic reactions such as rashes, asthma, itching, breathing difficulties and, ironically, unexplained weight gain.

Of course there are glowing reviews on the website. All of them give the product 5 stars – who’d expect anything different? So we looked elsewhere for reviews that might be just a little less biased, and couldn’t find any, anywhere. And that not only surprised us because normally we’re good at tracking down customer reviews, but it also made us more than just a little bit suspicious
