Have you heard of it? YourBeautyTonic is one of the newest food supplements to hit the market by storm and promises you “a sip closer to beautiful skin”. Created by Irish natural beauty entrepreneur Catherine Mulcahy who has worked 13 years in the natural health and beauty industry, she certainly knows a thing or two about rejuvenating skin from the inside out.
Thirty sachets per box, one per day to keep you going for a month, and all you have to do is empty the powder contents of the sachet into a glass! Add between 250ml and 350ml of water depending on how strong you like it, and stir to dissolve. It’s as simple as that. If you’re feeling extra creative you can always add it to your favourite smoothie – my personal favourite was mango, banana, almond milk, natural Greek yoghurt and porridge oats.
Now at first I was apprehensive at taking a food supplement having not done so before, but the thought of it containing four essential nutrients (vitamin A, zinc, vitamin B12 and vitamin B7) that contribute to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and normal energy levels, set my expectations high.
Firstly, I love the packaging it comes in – simple and elegant, which is exactly what I would go for. The box is white with black writing and the sachets match – not garish like some brands use to get your attention – and the only colour to catch your eye is a delicate blue butterfly. “Butterflies remind me there are all kinds of beautiful. It is never too late to be your own kind of beautiful,” – anonymous.
The way to describe YourBeautyTonic is a “Food Supplement with natural tropical fruit flavour and natural sweetener steviol glycosides” and that’s exactly what it tastes like, a tropical drink. You could even imagine yourself lying in a hammock on a beach in Bora Bora sipping on a cocktail, it tastes that good (a girl can dream right?). Admittedly the smell is quite strong but that adds to the illusion of living in paradise.
And what’s the best bit about this supplement you ask? It is GMO free and contains no artificial flavours, artificial colours, artificial sugars and preservatives. This added to the fact that for me, it worked. I noticeably saw a change in the appearance in of my skin; it appeared smoother and more radiant (without the need of a highlighter!) and will hopefully postpone the onset of wrinkles! Being the only change in my diet, I also feel it has helped reduce my tiredness, particularly in the mornings when I struggle to get up when it is cold and dark outside. I have already purchased another month supply to ensure I reap the rewards and happily would recommend it.
You can find YourBeautyTonic at www.yourtonic.com priced at £49.95 for a month supply, £91.60 for a two month supply or £133.35 for a three month supply, or it is also available from independent health stores and selected pharmacies. Results should be visible after one month.
