Beverages are a slippery slope – and we’re not talking about the alcoholic variety. We’re talking to you, “healthy” juices, teas, and kombuchas – all mechanisms for empty calories and unfulfilled promises. To that, we say, gimmicks be damned!
But we recently ran into a friend with a chaotic life schedule that puts ours to shame, and she was looking so dewy, rested, and gorgeous that we asked if she had a secret. She couldn’t stop talking about her obsession with Dirty Lemon, a line of drink supplements.
There are currently 4 options:
Detox: filtered water, lemon juice, herbal extracts, and activated charcoal. It has 10 calories a bottle and could feel the bloat disappearing (and no incessant 💩 ing).
Energy: filtered water, lemon and lime juice, green tea, and adaptogenic herbs. It’s 10 calories and legitimately gave us enough energy to do it on a weeknight (that’s saying a lot).
Skin + Hair: filtered water, lemon juice, cayenne, and marine collagen. 20 calories is a small price to pay for noticeably improved locks and skin.
Sleep: filtered water, lemon juice, rose water, herbal extracts, and magnesium glycinate. 10 calories to a glorious night of 💤 .
Every single one of them worked for us – like made a recognizable difference in how we slept, looked, and felt. We can’t say for certain whether it was the magical concoctions or the placebo effect, but either way, we’ll take it.
