mrsFABreviews: Will Shakeology pass myFABtest?

  
For the past few months I have had representatives from various companies to ask me to try this, that, and the other. I have reviewed many types of products in the past and with so many offers, why not start again? 

Starting this month, I will test a product (every other month, possibly sooner) and post a review here on theFABexperience.com. The length of the test period will depend on the type of product. All products reviewed will be donated by the companies who ask me to review them (or that I bug to allow me to review them😳). 

This month I will be testing vanilla Shakeology  protein powder whose slogan is, “The healthiest meal of the day.” Now I must disclaim that my sis, NurseFAB, is a Beachbody coach and I have several friends who are also coaches. That will NOT have a bearing on my final review. I don’t sell Shakeology and will give a clear, unbiased, and honest review. 

You may be wondering just how I will be testing this product? I plan to drink one shake for lunch or snack every day for 30 days starting today. I want to see how this shake makes me feel. Will it perk me up? Will it give me an energy boost? Will it be beneficial to my workouts? Nutrition wise, how does it compare to other brands that I have tried? What’s in it?  Will it curb my sugar cravings? That last one is HUGE for me, as I am a sweet-a-holic! I definitely inherited my dad’s sweet tooth. 

If you (or your company) have a product that you would like for me to test and review, email me at mrsFAB@theFABexperience.com. Results from this product test will be posted here next month! 

Get Your Cooking On With Wolfgang Puck and HSN!

The Today’s Special on HSN is one of my FABfaves! It’s Wolfgang Puck’s 10 piece set of colorful nonstick chef’s knives. This is the perfect Christmas gift for the chef in your life!

I have last year’s set. They came in a really nice gift box that displayed beautifully when opened. They are very sharp and of good quality for an economically priced set. I fell in love with them right away.

This year’s set is slightly different from the last set. This set has a long slicing knife where as my set included a serrated bread knife. Also the large chef’s knife has the hollow holes. My set had a smooth surface. I’m very tempted to order this set just to pick out the knives that I want and I can gift the rest. Hmmmmmmm??? 🙂

Please don’t hesitate to order this set of kitchen knives. And if you gift them, the recipient is going to LOVE you! To order, *click here.*

20130906-095340.jpg

I am so the foodie, which is not the best thing when trying to drop a few pounds. Who am I kidding… lots of pounds. But when I saw the presentation of Wolfgang Puck’s automatic rapid pressure last year, I had to give it a try!

I bought it from HSN (Home Shopping Network) as a Today’s Special for $89 with free shipping. As of posting deadline today, it is on sale (regular 129.95) for $99.95 with $12.95 UPS shipping and a two payment flex pay option (2 x $49.98, 3 with HSN card).

mrsFAB reviews: Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara **UPDATED**

20130804-092902.jpg

FABulous ones, get into this! Mary Kay has a mascara that I absolutely love. It’s their Lash Love mascara. I’ve been using this for just over a year and it’s one of the best mascaras that I’ve ever tried.

I am normally not a user of Mary Kay products. I actually got turned on to this product via online shopping. I ordered something (God knows what) and a full size tube of this mascara was sent with my order as a sample. I simply threw it in my makeup drawer with the tons of other samples that I get.

Months later I tried the sample. This mascara was amazing! It lengthened and separated my lashes with ONE coat. The second coat that I applied was icing on the cake. It immediately became my FABfave mascara, and a beauty essential in my makeup arsenal.

This mascara is not all clumpy after applying multiple coats, which are actually not needed if you have at least medium length lashes. I use the regular formula and I don’t have any issues with it running or smudging if I sweat or cry. They do have a waterproof formula and both formulas come in “I love black” and “I love brown.” I use the black.

20130804-094932.jpg

That picture is one I took after rushing and slapping on a coat. Not the best picture, but I wanted to show the kind of lash length that you can achieve with one coat. And to be honest, I think there may have been some mascara residue on my lashes from the day before. That’s why the lashes don’t look as smooth as they normally do. Oh well…

Ladies, this mascara is definitely worth trying. It is reasonably priced at $15 per tube. To order your tube of my FABfave, click here.

UPDATE:

Mary Kay now has the Lash Love mascara in a lengthening formula! I just texted my girl to get me a tube and I will update this post with my findings. The regular formula already lengthens. I can only imagine what this new formula will do. I can’t wait to try it. Smooches! 🙂

UPDATE II: Let the lengthening begin!

20130812-190220.jpg

I got the lengthening formula a few days ago and I love it! I actually think that my lashes are a bit longer with this formula versus the original.

The first thing that I noticed was the curved shape brush. The original formula has a straight brush. This brush holds the product perfectly… not too little and not too much.

Here is a picture of my lashes with this latest formula. I tried to get a side angle. Excuse my huge eyeball! LOL

20130812-191524.jpg

I like the lengthening formula, but I think you can’t go wrong with either of them. The end result will be long, full, FABulous lashes! This product gets 5 out of 5 stars on the FABness scale. Get yours today.

mrsFAB reviews: It Works! Body Wraps *Mid-point Review* UPDATED!!

20130610-101026.jpg

It has been over a week since I applied my first wrap. I was so excited because after seeing so many great before and after pictures on the Internet and after starting my own personal journey to get back my body from a few years ago (#thecomeback), I thought getting similar results would motivate me. So here goes…

The Product: It Works! Body Wraps

This product claims to be “as close to magic as it gets” according to their website. The wraps are supposed to tighten, tone, and firm whatever area you apply it to, in as little as 45 minutes with the “Ultimate Body Applicator” (the official name of the wrap). Here are some suggested places to apply the wrap:

How I Got Mine

I met a distributor, Lynette Reeves, a few weeks ago at the DFW Women’s Expo in Fort Worth, TX. I had been wanting to test the product for a while and the opportunity presented itself at the event.

Lynette and I discussed the product and I agreed to sign up as a “loyal customer.” That is when you agree to auto delivery every month and in return you get the 4-pack of wraps for $59 instead of the wholesale price of $99. She even gave me a free wrap on the spot! To visit Lynette’s site click here. To watch Lynette’s video on how to apply a wrap click here.
