Ever since first hearing about juice cleanses (in particular Sana Cleanse) in the earlier part of this year through Honeycombers, I’ve always wanted to try a proper juice cleanse, but have been so put off by the cost (more than $300!) that I've just shelved the notion to the back of my head. Also, aside from cost, the idea of being deprived of solid food/things to chew on for 3 entire days scares me- I’m really worried that I would not be able to keep it up, lapsing by day 2, or just launch into massive rounds of binge eating once the cleanse is over....

Sana cleanse had a special package to commemorate St Patrick’s day this year, called the St Pat’s Six, which was a twist on their usual Sana six pack – pack of 6 juices; 2 types each of Green Smoothie, and Green Lemon. It was going for a special price at $75 excluding delivery (self-collection available), which I considered was still a reasonable deal, and also a good way for me to test waters.

From confirming my orders via email, to picking up the packs at their ‘store’, everything was a breeze. The staff were friendly and very cheerful. I also really liked that they send you emails prior to the ‘cleanse’, providing tidbits on how to maximize your cleanse etc.

Also during the period I purchased my first pack of six, they had a promotion – if you liked them on facebook and posted a status regarding it they would give you a free box of pukka organic tea along with your cleanse/six pack. The tea i received was lemongrass and ginger, which was a bit to zesty for my taste (think very strong ginger taste), but still a gesture from Sana cleanse.

Regarding the juices themselves…
I found the green smoothie really tasty and not difficult at all to stomach. It has a very full taste, and is thicker in texture, with a slight tinge of sweetness from what must have been… (don’t take my word for it but, maybe mango? And banana? And other healthy green stuff.

Green lemon however was much more liquid-like, with a suspension-like appearance – there are green bits that tend to settle to the bottom of the bottle after some time. The taste of the juice is really tangy, with lemon, and maybe ginger? I found 3 bottles of that stuff really tough to stomach, but managed to finish it somehow.

Currently I’m still contemplating going on an official juice cleanse, having had a mixed experience after my Sana six St Patrick’s juices…
