However, in terms of shedding excess water weight, this product exceeded our expectations.

We don’t think that Sunday Riley Liquid diet should be used daily, nor should it take the place of an ‘actual’ healthy diet. But we found that from shimmying into that perfect pair of jeans, to getting ready for a walk down
