“Healthy is Gorgeous” is the SkinnyFit philosophy, and this American supplement brand is aimed at women who want to look and feel better. The Skinny Fit range is on sale solely online from the official website and via Amazon.
SkinnyFit Detox is a tea blend that you drink over 28 days in order to reduce bloating, appetite, and to improve health and weight loss. Although it does not contain the powerful laxative Senna, it does contain Milk Thistle which is known for its laxative effect, as well as nettle and dandelion which are well-known diuretics. Taking this mix may help some people lose “water weight” but doing this comes with a risk to health, and will not lead to weight loss or improved health and vitality. SkinnyFit Detox is overpriced and is certainly not worth the over-inflated price tag.
SkinnyFit Detox may cause side effects. The most troublesome ingredient is Milk Thistle that may cause stomach cramps, diarrhoea, nausea, and increased bowel movements. Milk Thistle acts like a natural oestrogen so if you have or have had a hormonally related medical condition such as breast cancer you should probably avoid.
The supplement contains diuretics which will cause increased urination and raise the risk of dehydration. The symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dry mouth, dizziness, confusion, inability to sweat or urinate, and heart palpitations.
SkinnyFit Detox is very expensive and many customers have complained about the price.
Buy from the SkinnyFit website and 1 x box of 28 teabags (1 month’s supply) costs a whopping $69.95
You are encouraged to make savings by signing up to auto ship and having fresh supplies delivered each month for $59.95, however we do not advise you to do this. Do you really want to take a detox supplement every month? In addition, these types of agreement can be difficult to cancel.
You can also buy 28 teabags of SkinnyFit Detox via Amazon for $69.95.
We do not rate SkinnyFit Detox very highly. This whole area of teatox supplements is nothing but a rip off to customers, touting some invented health benefits without any basis in fact. Detoxing does nothing for health apart from increasing the risk of dehydration and other side effects and although it is popular, the whole concept of detoxing is mainly made up by the supplement companies looking to sell products.
The one good point about SkinnyFit Detox is that it does not contain Senna as a laxative. The downside is that it will still work as a laxative in most people thanks to the Milk Thistle and of course the two diuretic ingredients will cause you to urinate more. Either way, more bathroom time is likely.
There really is nothing about this tea blend to justify paying $70 for just 28 teabags. For this money, you could splash out on some great quality tea which will be good for your health without any of the nasty potential side effects.
This supplement is overpriced and ineffective, and we do not recommend SkinnyFit Detox to the Watchdog readers.

SkinnyFit Detox is a tea that you are supposed to drink over 28 days in order to detox and according to the advertising, it reduces appetite, removes bloating, and gives you a flat stomach. It does contain caffeine but at just 17.98mg per serving (coffee contains around 95mg per cup), this is unlikely to be an issue for most users.
Detox teas like this usually contain strong laxatives. All those bowel movements are supposed to help you lose weight and remove so-called toxins from your colon, and many people think that a good purge is like a spring clean for your digestive system. It is not actually good for you and recently there has been an outcry at the fact that so many detox supplements contain Senna, a powerful laxative that can cause bad side effects.
In line with current trends, SkinnyFit Detox does not contain Senna. However, it does contain Milk Thistle which is also a laxative and although is not as strong as Senna, does still increase bowel movements and can cause diarrhoea.
In addition, the tea combines a blend of different teas such as Sencha, Matcha, and Oolong with some herbal ingredients. Some of these are known to cause a diuretic effect i.e. makes you pee more, especially nettle leaf and dandelion leaf. This means that it may cause you to lose “water weight” and therefore remove bloating, as well as show up temporarily lighter on the scales.
Other ingredients are assorted herbs such as Guarana, Yerba Mate, and Ginseng. Take a look at the ingredients tab to find out more.
Detox supplements are big business. It is fashionable to drink detox tea and although there is no reason at all why you should, these types of products remain very popular on the market. The basic idea seems to be that modern lifestyles are essentially unclean, and a detox is a way to give your health a quick boost and purify your internal organs such as the colon. There is zero medical evidence that this is necessary or healthy.
Take a look at our investigation into detox teas to find out more.
According to the advertising, SkinnyFit Detox causes the following benefits:
CLEANSE AND REDUCE BLOATING. SkinnyFit is a detox tea that works to reduce stomach bloating, suppress appetite, flush out toxins, and aid your digestion to help with weight loss and flattening the tummy!
FEEL GREAT EVERY DAY. Our special blend of all natural ingredients helps increase energy levels and boosts your metabolism to help burn fat faster and achieve your best results!
HEALTH THAT SHOWS. Cleansing your colon not only helps digestion but also promotes clear, glowing skin, and reduces acne and inflammation.
ONLY THE BEST INGREDIENTS. SkinnyFit contains 13 superfoods like, Matcha, Oolong, Sencha, and Milk Thistle, as well as natural herbs and berries. Our herbal tea has no artificial flavors or sweeteners, is non-GMO, 100% natural and laxative-free.
There is no evidence that any of this is true.
Let’s look at the claims!
First up, SkinnyFit Detox is supposed to cleanse and reduce bloating. Some of the ingredients will cause increase urination so as water retention can be a cause of bloating, it is possible that you may notice a difference here. That said you will need to ensure that you drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration but as most people do not drink enough water, this in itself may have a positive effect. Of course, you could just try upping your water consumption for the same results.
Feeling great every day with increased energy levels? This supplement does contain some great teas, and because teas are rich in antioxidants and a specific natural amino acid called L theanine which causes an energizing yet relaxing effect, you will probably notice the benefits of tea. In addition, there is some caffeine here so, like ordinary good quality tea, you will probably find that this does perk you up. Of course, this largely depends upon your own tolerance to caffeine and if you are a regular coffee or tea drinker, you may not even notice.
Health that shows? Unlikely. Cleansing your colon sounds suspiciously as if a laxative effect is expected and you do not need to cleanse your colon in this way. The best way to maintain digestive health and keep regular bowel movements is to eat fibre which is good for digestive health and helps nourish the probiotics in the gut. Taking a laxative on a regular basis is not good for health and can cause a range of side effects.
There is no connection AT ALL between the state of your colon and the state of your skin. Acne can be caused by a bad diet, it is true, but the reasons are complex and as yet have to be determined. Drinking a detox tea is highly unlikely to cure acne.
Serving is equal to one tea bag.
If SkinnyFit Detox does have any side effects, customers have either not noticed or mentioned them and compared to many teatox supplements, this one does seem more gentle than most.
However potential side effects may include:
The symptoms of dehydration include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have or have had any underlying medical issues or are taking prescription medication.
Milk thistle may cause drug interactions. In addition, it does contain a plant oestrogen so will not suit you if you have had or have a hormonally related medical condition such as breast cancer.
Yes, and there is a range of opinion. Some customers are satisfied with the tea such as these reviewers,
I can definitely tell a difference in my stomach. I will be reordering.
Wow! This stuff actually works. It actually reduced my hunger and I don’t feel as bloated as normally feel. I will definitely purchase this product again.
Some customers feel that it works a bit but that it is overhyped, such as this reviewer,
O.k. I gave this product a 3 because it does help you feel less bloated, however after drinking it daily for 1 month I haven’t lost a single pound and I also go to the gym 3 times a week. It is definitely hyped up so don’t believe people who say they have lost 15 pounds in a month….
Many customers have complained about the price
The tea tastes great and I feel it truly works, however there’s no way I’m spending 60 bucks for a few tea bags. I refuse. I’ll miss my daily teas but I can’t justify 60 bucks! Shame…
$70 for 28 tea bags? No thank you!
Some customers have found it ineffective,
After a week I’m really tired of the flavor. It’s hard to keep drinking it. Haven’t noticed any benefit after 3 weeks.
SkinnyFit Detox does not seem to be covered by a money-back guarantee.
You can buy SkinnyFit Detox via the official Skinny Fit website. It is also on sale from Amazon USA. It does not seem to be available to customers outside the USA.
