Sephora gift cards up for grabs!

In my previous post, I mentioned that I was offered FREE samples of Slim-Fast in exchange for my review on the blog. I was happy to agree, because I have used Slim-Fast a lot in my weight loss journey... I have always liked the taste (even when it was a powder that you mixed with milk.. remember that?).

This is what a representative from Slim-Fast sent me about the NEW and IMPROVED Slim-Fast...


Did you know one in four people considering a diet are focused on looking at a specific event or occasion?

With the Holidays right around the corner and juggling family life, thinking about losing those last 5-15 pounds for any special occasion, such as a high school reunion or wedding, can seem difficult. But with Slim·Fast’s new on-the-go shakes you can throw the re-closeable bottle in your purse or gym bag.

Slim·Fast is shedding the can to introduce its new, best-tasting shake ever – all inside a convenient, on-the-go bottle. The new shakes are creamy, rich and feature 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals, making it easier – and tastier – than ever to go from now to “wow”. 

Slim-Fast is an equally convenient, great-tasting way to stay fit and filled for those looking to lose weight or just looking to maintain. Flavors include Creamy Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla, Rich Chocolate Royale, Cappuccino Delight and Strawberries N’ Cream.

This person was also nice enough to send me FIVE gift cards for Sephora that are worth $25 each. Honestly, I didn't know about Sephora until now, but I am VERY excited to try some of their products!

I am giving away THREE of these gift cards on the blog, and the other two on my Facebook page. All you have to do to get your name thrown in the hat is leave a comment on this blog post about how much you love (or don't love) Slim Fast, and you can also go to my Facebook page and leave a comment on the post that is there about the give-a-way. It's that easy! I will choose a winner randomly on November 1.


FTC Disclaimer: I was offered free Slim-Fast for my honest review, which I provided. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...

When I was a kid my friend's mom used to have Slim Fast in the house all the time, and we used to make ourselves little shakes. It was chocolate so we thought it was yummy. The idea of using it for weight loss had not occurred to us!

I have used slim fast off and on over the years. My grandma and I used to put the powder, some splenda, ice cubes and milk in the blender and yum that was good. so good that we drank them TOO much LOL :)

Mrs.Carty said...

I would love one of the cards :)and I Just wanted to say slim fast does work I have used it in the past. But at this point in my weight loss I am just heading another way.

Suzanne said...

Ooh, I'm first! I have used slimfast in the past, as has my husband. We both liked it. I stopped using it a long time ago because it's got a lot of sugar in it. I know that sugar is way better than some of its substitutes, but I'm avidly against sugar. Not that I don't like it (obviously, that's why I'm fat), but when I decide to allow myself to have sugar, it's going to be for the good stuff. (And very rarely, LOL).

My husband still uses slimfast occasionally, though. He's in the Army and has those weigh ins twice a year. =)

To be honest this is my first day reading your blog but I am very excited to follow along with you and start my own weight loss blog!

Chocolate Slim Fast!!! Actually pretty good. :)

Rain Of Stars said...

To be 100% honest I used slim fast and it just didnt work for me. I would do everything by the book and still ended up gaining weight which was totally not what i was looking for. but that was many years ago maybe the new improved formula is better :-) good luck on your journey

runnin4fun said...

I have never tried Slimfast. It looks good-like the 10 grams of protein! I would love a Sephora gift card!

Jade Angel said...

Hey :)
...ok so I don't love Slim Fast shakes but there are a couple snack bars that are really yummy. On the other hand I LOVE Sephora!! One of my favorite places to shop. If you have not been to one find one near you and go!

Christie said...

I'm a follower Holli and I would love to try it out!! It's worth a try.

Sarah said...

I havent had slim fast in years, but i do love sephora! Sarah.currence at gmail dot com

gourmetorgohome said...

I actually don't think I've ever had a Slimfast, but I've gotten more into premade protein shakes recently, for convenience's sake and I would certainly try it! I also love Sephora!

Sarah said...

I think Slim Fast is an awesome option for days when I need to grab something on the go.

Cicely C. said...

I recently got back into the Slim Fast groove after taking about 5 years away from it b/c of the "new, improved" and equally disgusting Optima formula they added. I decided to go back to it last week and try it in the powdered form to make fruit smoothies...needless to say much easier to go down and I am in LOVE with the taste :)

I really like the chocolate Slimfast. It's yummy and best of all filling. Thanks for the chance to win!

Rusti said...

I love(d) using Slim Fast Optima Carb Control when I was preggers with my son. The dr's suggested to drink one every night before bed to keep my protein up. I have adopted the tradition in my normal everyday life with regular slim fast!
Thanks for the chance at the gift cards.

I had decent success with Slim Fast years ago after the birth of my second daughter. I've thought about trying it again.

Miss T said...

I love the cappucino slim-fast. The flavor is great!

Julia Writer said...

I love Slim Fast. I'm not using them everyday but I always keep a few cans in the car, they are just great to grab and go when you are in a hurry.

Katie J ♥ said...

Slim Fast has really improved their flavors over the years and it is a great way to get in some nourishment when you are in a hurry.

I personally don't like slim fast because it has alot of sugar in it but it works for alot of people. I like gnc's weight loss powder it tastes great and has low sugar and high fiber. I so would love to win a sephora gift card to give to my daughter for xmas, I hope I win. ;)

I have tried slim fast in the past, but haven't tried the new flavors. I am an eater ... and though my brain tells me that there is plenty of nutrition in slim fast for it to be plenty to hold me over lunch, I just can't get my stomach and teeto to agree to drinking any meal!

Jennneil said...

I like the taste of Slim Fast but really miss the sensation of chewing when I have it as a meal. I'd like Slim Fast as a snack but I would be afraid I'd MISuse it and gain!
You are such an inspiration!

SkinnyNurseB said...

I've never tried Slim Fast before, but I'm thinking about trying it now. I <3 Sephora :-)

Karla said...

I havent used slim fast in forever... But now those cards, now that I would use :p

I've never tried Slim-fast- BUT, I love Sephora!

simi menon said...

I am a chocoholic and when I began my journey to weight loss (still on it) I could not control my pangs for a chocolate (it was not a sweet craving but i wanted the real thing). I tried nesqucik mix but without the chocolate flavor I was kinda never too happy ! Gym and diet became a chore ! so happy to get slimfast ! the flavor helps so much !

Leigh said...

Slim Fast is my go to, when I'm getting to snug in my jeans :) And yes I can recall the powder Slim Fast! WOW getting way to old. Can't wait to try the 'new' stuff!

ju said...

I used to drink Slim Fast. It was so convenient!

amg_1508 said...

I was actually googling weight loss blogs and found your page. I have spent the last few days reading every post and I just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you are to me. Thank you for sharing and continuing to share your journey. I have never tried Slim Fast but have always been intrigued, I might have to try these :)

Chelle-Belle said...

Slim Fast is great when you're on the run! My favorite is chocolate! I use it as an mid-afternoon meal when I'm on the go!

Amy said...

I grew up around slim fast. My mom was always trying to eat healthier, and I used to think that meant you were always on a diet. Well... you are sort of... and I realized a diet just is what you eat! If I chose to eat healthy then it was a good diet, and if I chose to eat bad food, it wasn't a healthy diet. Slim fast just makes eating healthy easier! I get vitamins, I get protein, I get something that tastes like a snack :) it's awesome.

aaron john said...

Its good too loss weight by using slim fast.One of my friend told me about this but before that i am using sensalim spray and it really works.I am quite happy and comfortable in using it as you are by using slim fast

I am just a wife and mom. said...

Hello Hollie, I haven't tried slim fast in a long time, but it sounds like they have really improved on their taste so I think I might give it a try again. November 1st is my starting date, that will give me time in the next few days to get a menu and a workout scheduled and I am going to start a blog myself planned and I hope to find more inspiring blogs like yours to follow, I think I will add trying slimfast to my list to see how it does.

Kandra said...

I actually like slimfast, but it's got way too much sugar in it for me to use it on a regular basis.

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Gayle said...

I like Slimfast because it's easy and I can take it on the run. It's something I use to help maintain weight. I like to add ice cubes and half a small banana, I also add a li

I have tried Slim Fast on and off and I have to say i love it. I enjoy drinking canned protein shake especially the one that can be used as meal replacements. They are fast, quick and portable. I have not drank Slim Fast in about a year and I am excited to try the new one :).

The sudden death of my wife of 37 years prompted a lifestyle change that has led to a weight loss of 143 pounds in the last 20 months. After researching diet and nutrition. I've adopted a low carb/Paleo lifestyle.

Low carb, high fat, high protein. I've cut out all sugars, grains like wheat. No processed foods or fast foods.

I tell my story on my blog at: http://danmoffett.blogspot.com/

Losing weight is easy once you cut out the sugar and wheat.

Read the book "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis.
