Genie Concepts is situated at the heart of Sheung Wan in New Street, this newly developed 
area is surrounded by hip cafes and restaurants, art galleries and more! Amongst the ex pats 
and fashion forward community, this area is the perfect home for a new concept store! When 
you take a stroll down New st, Genie concepts is clearly a standout! With a large window display, 
an eye catching garden wall of leaves and a porch full of plants, this little store takes me back to 
my own Aussie garden and just takes me out of Hong Kong for a brief moment! 
There is also a nice daily specials blackboard covered with new smoothies and new yummy treats, 
which also gives you the homey customised feel!
I love a cafe or restaurant that is not afraid to show you everything inside the kitchen and Genie is
 one of them. Through the glass and open kitchen design, anyone can see how the juice is made or 
how the food is put together. Genie is truly a clean mean well oiled machine! From friendly staff 
assistance to watching them put together your fresh smoothie as they dance to music, genie is a fun 
warm environment for every customer! 
CHARITY
Genie is not just a juice detox store, they are also very involved in helping charities around the world. 
Switching every few weeks, Genie donates a portion of their profits to their charity of the month.
If you represent a charity, feel free to approach Genie to be their next charity of the month!



MY FAVOURITE PART OF GENIE
THE PACKAGING



My favourite part of genie is the gorgeous colourful cheerful packaging. 
When you first receive your detox, you will notice the personalised message, 
then the lovely genie branded cooler bag! 
The price of the detox maybe a bit pricey but once you see what you get for your money, 
it's all worth it! Inside the raw detox diet, the cooler bag is jam packed with goodies,
 who knew a bag that small can fit 7 items! Each individually packaged in air tight 
containers and all labelled with Genie!

My favourite is the juice detox, the size and shape of the bottles are perfect, as a 
customer I feel that they are giving a generous portion and also feeling less fearful 
of being hungry during the day. 


DAY 1 RAW FOOD DETOX
1 SALAD + 1 PACKET OF WRAPS + 1 PASTA +
2 PACKETS OF PROTEIN BALLS + 2 BOTTLE OF JUICE
COLLARD WRAPS FILLED WITH DELICIOUS CASHEW BUTTER
MY FAVOURITE! 
Who knew that cashew butter can taste like protein! 
KALE SALAD - also one of my favourites! 
This fresh crunchy salad has such a yummy dressing I can devour 10 bowls of these! 
KELP PASTA  - this is definitely acquired taste, it's a little sour
 and has a squishy texture, however I know it's healthy for me, 
and helped to fill me right up during my detox! 
PROTEIN BALLS + COCONUT MACAROONS
What I think : Super yummy treats, I can taste all the coconut,
 nuts and ingredients clearly!
I looked forward to these all day and was snacking on them! 
They saved me when I was craving for sugar. 
Genie gives you such a generous portion, I actually couldn't 
finish all of them and saved some for the next day! 

SMOOTH OPERATOR JUICE + FOUR LEAF CLOVER
What I think: These two juices are my favourite juice out of all the juices! 
The smoothie fills me up and is perfect for breakfast. The 2nd juice is 
the four leaf clover, it's cleansing, and fresh and lifts me up midday! 

DAY 2 JUICE CLEANSE

 1 - 6 labelled clearly starting from smoothie to fresh juices to a nice dessert smoothie for night time! 


1. Smooth Operator 2. Garden Gnome  3. Hawaii H20 4.Four leaf Clover 5. Summer Soup  6. Sweet dreams

How Did it feel? 
TIP: Do not start your juice detox on a day your friends drag you out to socialise
 in an italian restaurant and your left as the only one not eating and drinking juices! 
Once I recieved this delivery I was so excited to try this detox. My day started off with
 the breakfast smoothie "Smooth Operator" I'm not much of a breakfast person, but this
smoothie was not only delicious but super filling which is exactly what I needed to 
start my day off.

As the day progressed I had the Garden Gnome, Hawaii H20 and Four leaf clover,
these juices are light and refreshing and they help to keep my energy levels up.
 By the time I drank four leaf clover I was definitely not thirsty anymore, and was really 
wanting to chew on something or taste protein. 

I had Summer soup at around 7pm, this was a very interesting juice, I feel its an acquired 
taste as it's quite savoury, not something I would expect in a juice, it's very thick so I 
could only have half of it. 

I had put chia seeds early on in the day in "sweet dreams" so it will soak up and become 
sago texture. So with this in mind I was super excited to have my treat of the day! 
"Sweet Dreams" was less sweet then I envisioned but it was tasty and help to fight
 my sugar dessert cravings and the chia seeds filled me right up! 



Would I do it again? 
YES
But next time I would do a 1 day juice detox and 3 day raw food, as the raw
 food was just so good!!!
I'm craving the kale salad and collard wraps as I type! 
I can't wait to eat that again!
What is the best part of Genie?
I love how everything is made for me, and packaged clearly on 
what to do and which to eat. For those people with busy lives, 
Genie detox is awesome !
