Revel Juice Juice Cleanse
I was sent an one day juice cleanse from Revel that is customize specially for my lifestyle. I wanted something that would support a day of work followed by an intense work out. Revel Juice juice cleanse offers three levels catered to your body weight to ensure your body receives all the necessary essentials without overwhelming your system with sugar.
The Level One cleanse: Weighing less than 150 pounds and contains approximately 1500 calories, 55 grams of protein, 18 mg iron, 30 grams of fibre and more than 100% of your daily potassium, vitamin A and C needs.

The one day juice cleanse went very smooth. I did not feel hungry and no sudden crash. I picked level two thinking I would need the extra calories to sustain a run at lunch and megaformer workout at night. But I was quite full come evening when I was trying to finish my Cashew Bliss. Needless to say, I slept like a baby.
You can also optimize your juice cleanse by selecting 3 juice options. I went with Easy Green for its detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, and digestive aid functions. Eternity fir uts rejuvenating, hydrating, and anti-inflammatory properties. The Scavenger for its anti-bacterial, cardiovascular health, and kidney Support cleansing functions. Clearly, I wanted to detoxify my system. It was perfect after a heavy week of media tastings and late nights!

- 2. Late-morning: Protein Power
- 3. Lunch time: Root Remedy or Eternity

Canteen PDX is a trendy healthy restaurant and juice bar in the heart of SE Portland. It is a fresh take on eating healthy and drinking more nutrient filled beverages. I love how Portland offers tons of fresh local, organic salad bowls made with wholesome ingredients. …
The Juice Box is a 100% organic cold press juicery in Vancouver. I have tried their juices before but never as part of a three day juice cleanse. I love incorporating fresh fruit and vegetable juices into my diet – often times I need that extra boast of essential vitamins, minerals, and acids in my body when I feel most sluggish. We just came off from a mini-vacation to Portland, I was really excited to get an invite to try a 3 days juice cleanse from The Juice Box!

I love juicing and have tried many juiceries local and aboard – The Juice Truck, The Juicery & Co, Glory Juice Co, The Juice Shop – just to name a few. I would often make my own juices at home with a trusty Two Speed Juice Fountain. Juicing is a fast way to bank as much nutrients in your body and is helpful to catalyze and spring cleanse your internal organs. Flush out the toxins and detox unnatural substances.
What I like about The Juice Box:
Glass bottles vs plastic bottles. Glass bottles better maintain the nutritional integrity of the ingredients albeit a little heavy to carry a day’s worth of cleanse to and from work!
Variety of flavors that are great for everyday drinking and also part of a cleanse. My favorite right now is their Lavender Almond.
Three different juice cleanse options available dependent on your body weight and lifestyle
- The Chief Cleanse – the Original Juice Box Cleanse for a balance and efficient cleanse
- The Grind Cleanse – most advanced cleanse offering. It is a no fuss, straight up intense deep clean that will leave you feeling detoxed and energized.
- The Seawall Cleanse – easy stroll great for beginners. It is packed with 6 amazing tasting juices and one delicious Nut Milk.
I did the Chief Cleanse but individualized it by switching out Apple Lemon Ginger juice for the Almond Milk. I choose to do this because I actively workout with ClassPass (Get $25 off first month’s membership with this LINK).
I know I need the extra calories after an intense sweat session! When doing a juice cleanse (or any time of cleanse for that matter) is knowing your body, what it needs and how to compliment/enhance your lifestyle!
During my 3 day juice cleanse with The Juice Box, I had was full and had enough energy to go to work and also pack in a spin class and a run! I have to admit, I miss chewing on food. The first 2 days are always the hardest. The third day I felt renewed.
- 1 Day Cleanse 59.99
- 3 Day Cleanse 179.99
- 5 Day Cleanse 299.99

Glory Juice Co Vancouver opened their newest location near Olympic Village on Quebec and West 2nd Avenue. It is just around the corner from Earnest Ice Cream. I am so glad to have Glory Juice Olympic Village opened since it is on the way from from spin classes. The original 4027 MacDonald Street shop was simply too far!
I love the space inside. It has high ceilings with a bright airy space. The wooden benches are so comfortable with an angled back.
There are a lot of fresh organic cold press juices and organic nut milk beverages available. I like that they have samples for tasting and also smaller baby bottles. Glory Juice has a lot wide range of flavors from the green’s green, bright citrus tasting ones to sweeter fruity juices.
#17 Beet Apple Burdock 10.95: a bright and sweet cold press juice. It is a great starter juice if you’ve never tried cold press juices or juice cleanses before. Although it is a little expensive. It is worth every penny.

Local Lift Juice Bar in North Vancouver recently had a 3 day juice cleanse deal for $79 for 18 bottles of fresh pressed juice, herbal teas. $20 bottle deposit was requested afterwards because I wasn’t picking up the juices daily. I have always loved detoxing and resetting my body for a healthy start.
Local Lift Juice Bar 3 Day Juice Cleanse Consists of:
- 18 jars of fresh juices in mason jars
- 3 lemons (1 for each day)
- 3 cups of master cleanse mixture (12 oz cup each)
- a bunch of spirulina tablets (2500 mg)
- herbal tea bags
I have done a few juice cleanses. Comparing the prices and quality of the juice cleanses itself, I have to say my favorite is still The Juice Truck and The Juicery Co.. I will pay $195 no problem.
I did not enjoy this juice cleanse form Local Lift Juice Bar at all. Let my tell you why.
- Inconsistency and quality of each bottle
- No instructions for the juice cleanse
- No labels of ingredients
- Packaging (or lack thereof)
- Healthy and safety concerns
The problem with this juice cleanse is that it comes with no instructions. There are no description that comes with any of the juice bottles. No ingredients labeled.
I am not interested to visit their website and research what I am drinking in a “liquid facial” juice. That is silly.
I asked if there was “a specific order I should consume this cleanse?” The answer was “it doesn’t matter. Or if you must, drink the greener juices in during the day.” Puzzling.
There is no protein like shake, an almond milk or nut mylk mixture. I later found out there are spirulina tablets which acts as a protein replacement.
What bothered me the most was the inconsistency of each bottle of juice. The lackluster commitment to produce the best juice cleanse for the consumer.
- The juices are not filled to the brim and sealed.
- Oxygen promotes oxidization. See above photo.
- Some juices had more volume than others.
- By day 2, some juices were browning.
Master cleanse drinks were packaged in to go paper coffee cups. By the time it arrived home, the cups were mangled inside the red plastic trays.
The spirulina tablets were loosely packaged in pastry take out bags. Some were crushed and broken. I simply did not feel very safe taking these pills. There were again no instructions as to how many or how frequently I should be taking there spirulina tablets. I may know what spirulina tablets are. But does an average consumer? Again, there were no instructions or descriptions what these pills are.
If you are wondering. Spirulina tablets are blue green algae, 100% natural highly nutritious micro salt water plant. Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein. Spirulina health benefits include a boost to the immune system, improved digestion, controls appetite and contains a wide range of minerals.
I could not complete the juice cleanse from The Local Lift Juice Bar simply because I did not feel that it was a cleanse. I simply drank the juice as a orange juice drink, beet juice drink or whatnot.
Other facts about The Local Lift Juice Bar juice cleanse:
- The juice cleanse does not come with any packaging.
- The bottles were provided in plastic trays.
- $20 bottle deposit required for the 3 day juice cleanse.
- Pick up only. No delivery available.
I do not recommend this as juice cleanse or meal replacement. However, it may be a deal if you are looking for some fresh juices for normal consumption.
