Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice
Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice is a powdered drink supplement that the advertising claims is scientifically proven to help weight loss. A scientifically proven raspberry mojito drink sounds like it should make weight loss easy and fun, but does it live up to the claims? We take a look.

Cute Nutrition is a British brand aimed at young women. Big on Instagram and other social media sites, it delivers plenty of cute fluffiness but provides very little detail about the supplements and how they work.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Overview

What you need to know about Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice is a powdered supplement that you add to water in order to make a raspberry mojito flavoured drink. The principle ingredient is a citrus formula called Sinetrol, and there has been some clinical testing that suggests it may help weight loss if you take it over three months. Each pot of Skinny Juice contains 240g of powder which is enough for 15 to 30 days supply. Cute Nutrition is on sale via Amazon in the UK, and across the various Amazon sites in Europe. You can also buy directly from the Cute Nutrition website where you receive a free plastic bottle with each purchase.

What are the side effects of Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice?

Skinny Juice contains grapefruit extracts, so may cause drug interactions. If you are taking medication or have been told to avoid grapefruit, you should avoid Skinny Juice.

Other side effects to citrus flavonoids may include dizziness, cough, flushing sensation, palpitations, and headaches.

Although the ingredients list states that the supplement contains 24mg of natural caffeine, it is unclear whether this is added caffeine or is the sum content of the ingredients which contain caffeine i.e. yerba mate, green tea, and guarana. This means that the caffeine content could be higher than it appears so may cause side effects including insomnia, increased heart rate/blood pressure, jitteriness, anxiety, and restlessness.

Dandelion root is a diuretic so causes increased urination. It is important to state hydrated while using or it could lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dry mouth, fatigue, and palpitations.

How much does Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice cost?

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice is quite expensive. Buy from the Cute Nutrition website and it costs £29.99 for one 240g tub which is sufficient for 30 servings (15 – 30 days supply). Shipping is calculated at the point of sale with UK shipping costing £4.99, EU shipping €8.21 and US shipping $9.97. Canada costs $11.71. Shipping is free on orders over £50.00.

Skinny Juice is slightly cheaper on Amazon UK where it costs £26.99. Other Amazon prices are comparable.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Key Features

Skinny Juice is a powdered supplement that you add to water in order to make a raspberry mojito flavoured drink and according to the advertising, it contains a blend of ingredients to help you lose weight, detox, and reduce bloating. It is called Skinny Juice but on Amazon, it is also referred to as Cleansing juice so it looks like it is going to have a laxative/diuretic effect.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Key Points

  • Raspberry Mojito flavour
  • Each 240g tub is sufficient for 30 servings (15 – 30 days supply)
  • Cute Nutrition contact phone number: 01753 969077

Looking at the ingredients list, Skinny Juice does contain dandelion root which is a diuretic. However, the principle component is a branded product called Sinetrol XPUR which is based on Mediterranean citrus extracts, and which may help the body reduce fat cells.

There are also some weight loss favourites including Yerba Mate, Green Tea extract, and a small amount of caffeine. The final component is L Carnitine L Tartrate – a compound based on the amino acid Carnitine, which may help improve energy levels and endurance.

How to Take Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice

  • Mix 1 scoop (8g) with 500ml of water
  • Use 1-2 times daily

Overall, the formula for Skinny Juice looks reasonable enough and we were pleasantly surprised to find that it did not contain the powerful laxatives that the name suggested. Not so good is that Skinny Juice does contain a lot of sugars and flavourings.

We have covered many Cute Nutrition supplements in previous reviews including Cute Nutrition TeatoxCute Nutrition Garcinia Complex, and Cute Nutrition Weight Loss Shake.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Concerns

  • There should have been a warning about the grapefruit content
  • Dehydration could be a side effect
  • Expensive if you use twice a day

Cute Nutrition supplements, in general, are fairly inexpensive and they will appeal to younger women but are generally not very good quality. What Cute Nutrition seem very good at is marketing and social media, and creating the right popular look!

The company is based in Slough UK, although the listed address is the more upmarket Covent Garden London, and you can contact them by phone on 01753 969077.

Cute Nutrition sells via the official website, and also from third-party sites including Amazon.

What does Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice claim to do?

According to the official product page, the key features are:

  • Proven Results & Clinically Tested
  • Formulated for Weight Loss & Fat Loss
  • Made in the UK Formulated to the Highest Quality
  • Detox, Cleanse & Reduce Your Bloating
  • Best used alongside a healthy balanced diet

Buy directly from the Cute Nutrition site, and all purchases come with a free pink and white plastic bottle.

The key ingredient is Sinetrol XPUR and according to the product information,

“Sinetrol promotes the body in reducing excess body fat to help reach and maintain a healthy body composition. Its synergistic action reduces oxidative stress and lowers the risk of metabolic disturbances associated with overweight and obesity.”

Does Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice work?

It might work a bit, but don’t expect fast or dramatic results.

The principle ingredient is Sinetrol XPUR and according to Fytexia the developers of this supplement, it does work although none of the clinical trials have been carried out on a large scale. And of course, it important to bear in mind that the only research into this product has been carried out by the company selling this supplement!

According to clinical research, Sinetrol breaks down fat cells, which leads to the breakdown of triglycerides stored in fat cells (adipocytes) and the release of free fatty acids (FFAs) and glycerol. According to the clinical information, these results suggest that the lipolytic effect is made possible by inhibiting cAMP-PDE (the messengers in the body that regulate sugar and lipid metabolism).

There have been three clinical tests at the time of writing. All tests were carried out over three month’s duration and all participants reported weight loss – although whether results would have been as favourable had the clinical studies been carried out by independent researchers, we can only guess.

The other ingredients look OK, although the ingredient quantities are low so are possibly ineffective. However, we are concerned about the diuretic effect of the dandelion root because this could lead to dehydration.

We would be concerned about long term use of a diuretic but because Sinetrol seems to take 3 months to work (if it does actually work), you could be in for the long haul if you want to see any benefits from this supplement.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Ingredients

Each serving contains 8g of powder (1 scoop) added to water.

  • Sinetrol XPUR (700mg): Sinetrol XPUR is a branded formula available only to the supplements industry, and made by French company Fytexia based in the South of France. It is formulated from a blend of citrus fruits – blood orange, sweet orange, and grapefruit, and is enhanced by guarana – a natural bean that contains caffeine. The company have carried out 3 clinical tests and according to results, it breaks down fat cells and releases free fatty acids, leading to reduced abdominal fat and a reduction of hip and waist size. Source
  • Dandelion Root Powder (225mg): Well known garden weed that may have numerous possibilities as a herbal supplement with many health benefits. However, its best-known function is as a diuretic and it has long been known to increase urination. An old English folk name for Dandelion is “wet the bed” and that is a fair description of its principle effect.
  • Yerba Mate Leaf Extract (150mg): Plant extract used as a tea in South America. It contains a cocktail of xanthines (like caffeine), plus other phytochemicals. When tested on overfed rats, it seemed to reduce Leptin signalling in the brain, the hormone that signals hunger. A usual supplement serving size of dried leaf is around 1000mg daily, so may not be enough to be effective here. Source
  • L Carnitine L Tartrate (150mg): Carnitine Tartrate is a supplement form of Carnitine, an amino acid made by the body and also available in diet. It plays many roles, and one of these is to help the body use fatty acids to produce energy. Some research suggests that Carnitine supplements can improve exercise performance by reducing muscle glycogen usage and lactate – an enzyme that accumulates during exercise and leads to fatigue. It seems to be good for heart health too. Serving size here is fairly low because the typical effective serving is between 1000mg and 3000mg per day. Source
  • Green Tea Extract (125mg): Green tea is high in antioxidants, and some research suggests that it can increase the metabolic rate helping you burn off fat more easily. It works best with additional caffeine. Other research suggests that when used with a training regime green tea may enhance results.
  • Naturally occurring caffeine (24mg): This probably refers to the caffeine content of the green tea, yerba mate, and possibly the guarana content of the Sinetrol. The average cup of coffee contains around 100mg, so this low serving size is unlikely to cause side effects for most users.
  • Flavanones (6.5%): Flavanones are colourless ketones derived from some plant chemicals such as Naringin, which is present in grapefruit.
  • Other ingredients: Raspberry Mojito Flavour Proprietary Blend, Fibre, Acidity Regulator, Flavouring, Natural Colour, Sweetener.

There is not much customer feedback for this supplement so we cannot provide any true life experiences, however, there may be side effects.

Although the ingredients list states that the supplement contains 24mg of natural caffeine, it is unclear whether this is added caffeine or is the sum content of the ingredients which contain caffeine i.e. yerba mate, green tea, and guarana.

Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice Customer Feedback

There is very little customer feedback for this supplement. There are a couple of positive comments on the Cute Nutrition website, such as:

GREAT TASTE! I have tried so many things that I just can’t get along with but the cute skinny juice tastes amazing and I can’t wait to see the results! I will definitely be sticking with it!

There are a couple of similarly favourable comments on Amazon too,

Great fat burner and energy blast, nice sprinkled on porridge too

However, we did notice that one customer responded to questions on Amazon less favourably. In response to a question about sweeteners, she wrote,

Don’t know but doesn’t taste as if there is any. It is foul stuff.

Where To Buy Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice

Watchdog Verdict

We are not overly impressed by Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice. This supplement is not going to offer much support to weight loss and unless you like the taste, there seems to be little reason to take it. Although Sinetrol may have a mild weight loss effect, it does contain grapefruit so will be unsuitable for many people who may be taking prescription medication. You do need to check this with your doctor, yet this point is never mentioned in the product information

In addition, many of the other ingredients are in very low quantities and we have added concerns about the dandelion content. Dandelion is a diuretic so it will make you urinate more, and there seems to be little point to it. A diuretic may temporarily make you look and feel thinner, but is not a lasting effect and can lead to dehydration.

Overall, we do not recommend Cute Nutrition Skinny Juice to the Watchdog readers.
