I love the professional clean feeling that I get by using Mouthwatchers, and use this toothbrush as my “go to” between dentist visits. So “What makes this toothbrush so special” you ask? Well here is what the hype is all about!

Invented by a Dentist

Dr. Ronald Plotka developed the Mouthwatchers toothbrushes as part of his 40+ year dental practice. Who would know the best approach to maximum dental health and hygiene then someone who devotes their career to making smiles brighter, right?!?! He is so confident that you will love the benefits of the Mouthwatchers toothbrush that he backs the product by a 100% satisfaction guarantee! So go ahead, give it a try!

Antimicrobial Bristles for Better Health

The bristles of Mouthwatchers toothbrushes are infused with silver to naturally eliminate 99.9% bacteria. This helps inhibit bacteria growth on the bristles in between uses, so that your toothbrush is clean and ready for the next use. I don’t know about you, but I find it comforting to know that I am not introducing bacteria back into my mouth on my toothbrush. Score!

Flossing Bristles for a Better Clean

Dr. Plotka’s Mouthwatchers toothbrushes have dual layered bristles. The thinner out bristles help gently brush away plaque and food particles that other brushes miss. The coarser, inner bristles ensure a deeper clean of teeth and gums. Not to mention, the polyester bristles will outlast the traditional nylon bristles of other toothbrushes.

Besides, with Dr. Plotka’s product guarantee, what do you have to lose, right?!?!? Aside from the adult Mouthwatchers toothbrush, Youth, Powered and Travel versions are also available. Something for everyone. I love the amazing clean feeling I get from Mouthwatchers. Thank you Dr. Plotka!

FabFitFun Winter Box 2017: What’s the Hype?

Hey all! I am sure you have seen either TV or online ads for the FabFitFun home delivery system. I must admit that I am all-in when it comes to trying new things that come to my door, that contain products that I would actually use, and that are offered at awesome prices. When I saw the FabFitFun ad online, I just HAD to give it a whirl to see what the hype was all about. Here is my review of the most recent box — the Winter Box 2017.

So, What is FabFitFun, Anyway?

First, a little overview on what FabFitFun actually is. This home delivery program comes as a paid subscription, which can be annually or seasonally. I opted for the annual membership, which gets four boxes per year on your doorstep (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter). A seasonal membership is just that, one box depending on what season you choose. Of course, as with most subscriptions, there is a savings/discount when you enroll in the annual versus seasonal memberships.

Furthermore, the delivery boxes contain full-size premium beauty and fashion products. I must admit, I have found the amount of product delivered to be generous! You also have the opportunity to customize your shipments to products that are geared toward your personal interests and style. This customization is all done through a personal website portal that you can log in and update anytime you want.

So, What Did I Get in My Winter 2017 FabFitFun Box?

I must admit, each time I get one of these boxes delivered to my door, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! The anticipation of opening the box to see what goodies are inside is awesome, for lack of a better word 😉 I was pleasantly surprised with my 2017 Winter Box selections, as they are items that I would actually use. Here is what I received in FULL SIZE product (with my own thoughts and categories for each):

Ok, So What IS the Hype of FabFitFun?

I personally enjoy receiving my FabFitFun boxes each season, and based on the products that I receive can see the value in the subscription membership. I have received a few items in previous boxes here and there that I didn’t absolutely LOVE, but I re-gifted to those that I knew would. Overall, I find that FabFitFun truly delivers! They deliver premium products and have a great “sense” of what fits my personal style. Here’s to my next box, arriving Spring 2018!

Product Review: MyGNC Rewards Pro Box

During my last visit to a local GNC store, the store clerk had asked me if I was interested in enrolling in the myGNC Pro Access Membership. I was hesitant at first, because I had to see for myself the cost versus benefit for the program. The membership comes with a nominal yearly fee, which honestly more than pays for itself in savings if you shop a few times a year and gather purchase points.

Some of the perks included in the myGNC Pro Access Membership include quarterly pick-your-day sale days, and free shipping for online GNC purchases for one year. Additionally, the membership includes pro access insider line, and customized Pro Boxes that are delivered to your door three times per year. I enrolled in the program because I saw the value as a win-win. I wanted to share with you my personal review of the Pro Box that I recently received.

MyGNC Pro Box Customization Process

When I first enrolled in the myGNC Pro Access Membership, I was prompted to log in to the Pro Access website and customize my experience. This customization process promotes the Pro Boxes to be geared toward my personal goals and health and wellness characteristics. The overall customization process was fairly easy and was done through a series of survey-style questions. I am able to log back in to my Pro Access Membership site at any time and update my answers as needed.

Items Included in MyGNC Pro Box

Though the Box contents vary with each shipment, one common inclusion is a product information card. The card provides a brief description of each item contained in the Box. According to the card contained in my Box (October 2017), here are the sample-sized items that I received:

  1. Beyond Raw LIT: this is a pre-workout flavored drink mix that you combine with water and consume prior to working out for an energy boost.
  2. Enlightened Crispy Marshmallow Treat: this is my favorite item in the box. The apple cinnamon flavor is bold but not over-bearing. The texture is a little more dense than your “normal” rice crispy treat, but there is no grit after taste. The high fiber, gluten/peanut/GMO free treat is packed with 15 grams of protein. The treat was also a generous size (possibly full-sized) product.
  3. ResVitale Collagen Renew: a flavorless collagen powder that can be mixed with your favorite drink or food item. This gives your skin a collagen boost for healthy elasticity. There is also a discount coupon included for ResVitale products.
  4. Dymatize ISO100 Whey Protein Powder: 1 serving size of this chocolate coconut flavored powder. Mix as desired and add to your daily health and wellness regime to crush cravings.
  5. FITJOY Protein Bar: this lemon-flavored square is packed with protein and is ideal for a quick pick-me-up during the day.
  6. Beyond Raw Precision BCAA: this is a post-workout flavored drink mix that you combine with water. Consume after workouts as a great recovery blend.
  7. Buy One Get One Free coupon code valid in-store or online for Enlightened products.

My Overall Experience with the myGNC Pro Box

Overall, I am very satisfied with the myGNC Pro Boxes that I have received so far. The sample sizes are generous and well-thought. Personally, I think the best aspect is that the Boxes are included in the membership fee. Unlike many other home delivery services, GNC doesn’t charge extra to receive the boxes as they are a perk included in the myGNC Pro Access Membership.
