Absolutely vile

I only purchased these because there was no Optifast. They have a disgusting chemical taste. I have to pinch my nose to drink it. I do not recommend. At. All. Show details

So far, so good!

Have tried chocolate, banana and strawberry in the past month. The choc and banana were both nice, but the strawberry is my least liked.
Results are good, lost 6.8kg in 4weeks Show details

These shakes are absolutely AMAZING!!

I started Optislim 3 days ago. I am having a shake in the morning a Optislim snack for morning tea than a shake or bar for lunch than another Optislim snack for afternoon tea than a dinner than a decafe coffee . I’ve already lost two kilos. I’ve tried other shakes in the past but I never stuck to them. But with Optislim I have been sticking to it I brought the snack bundle and i am so happy to be down to my goal weight everyone needs to try these shakes. Show details

Worst tasting product

Worst tasting product I've ever tried. Dont expect any interest from the company either, was told to add some instant coffee powder to make it taste better and point blank refuse to give refunds. Buy another brand. Any other brand. Show details

It tastes more like gravy than coffee

Just moved home to Oz and wanted to shed a few move-stress kgs. Have used modifast (5/5 for taste but can't find it here). At least I won't snack now given how sick I feel. Show details

Yummy and filling

I have tried a few diets, celebrity slim, the cookie diet, just ordering youfoodz. But none left me as full as optislim its been 14 days and I've lost 6 kgs. With the veggies in-between the shakes I'm really enjoying the program I am full and have no cravings. Show details

No, just....no

The nutritional content of these shakes or their efficacy is, frankly, irrelevant.

I had been losing weight with other Vanilla VLCD Shakes & tried Optislim
(FYI Optifast 4/5 for taste Aldi 5/5 for taste)

Who tasted this and decided it would sell? Who tasted this and decided to label it vanilla? On what basis? The colour? To say it tastes of salt be a unfair to salt. It tastes like how one would imagine palliative robot sweat to taste - chemically, salty and sickening.
Avoid.
There are more enjoyable ways to lose weight. Optifast. Boot camp. Chemotherapy. Show details

Optislim, the perfect recipe

I buy the Vanilla shakes and use Vitasoy UNSWEETENED Almond Milk and Nutribullet to blend. When I feel like chocolate, I add 1 tablespoon of Nature's Way CACAO Organic Powder (available at all supermarkets). Just make sure you get unsweetened almond milk and cacao powder to counteract the sweetness of the optislim shake and use a blender such as Nutribullet and bingo, delicious! Show details

Best meal replacement shakes by far

So over the many years of trying diffrent shakes, my problem always came down to taste. So many day we horrible or leave an aftertaste. So many times I found myself holding my nose trying not to gag day 3 of shakes.
Then I did research, read reviews on places like this (now I know not to read reviews on the company's websites as they all say they tatse good)
So I brought optislim classic , a box of chocolate and a box of strawberry. Not only are they filing and I don't feel like I'm missing out, they actually taste good and NO AFTER TATSE!!! I will be buying more of these for sure and recommending them. Good luck on your health journey everyone Show details

Absolutely awful. A huge struggle to keep the first mouthful down

My Dr gave me a sample pack of chocolate flavour. The first mouthful nearly made me vomit almost tasted off. YUCK!!
I'm going to try The lady shake and then optifast because I simply cannot drink another Optislim. Show details

Espresso and vanilla

Bought both flavours on special, felt the were a bit odd tasting, too thin, so I added frozen banana Nd half a tea of peanut butter, in the blender, soo much better

The taste just gets worse for each shake

I bought the espresso and the chocolate together for the low price deal at chemist warehouse. Both horrible in taste. Have tried to continue with the espresso to finish them so I don't waste money but I can't anymore. It smells like coffee but tastes like a chemicals and is hard to finish it off. Makes it hard for weight loss as it's a horrible experience having these shakes as a meal. Show details

Optislim Vanilla shake doesn’t take like vanilla!

Price wise the optislim is good & affordable!
It doesn’t taste like vanilla so I’m disappointed also I don’t find it very feeling compared to optifast!
When I prep my shake the night before I shake it for like 40-50 seconds and put it in the fridge and its thick and smooth to drink!

Good price and tasted okay

I have tried the banana and strawberry shakes and okay with them. They are so much cheaper than other brands and offer great value. Not doing the small bowl of vegetables tho as I prefer to have a small portion low calorie meal instead  Show details

Market Research Fail

Great tasting, I don't think so! Before they changed the packaging and formula it did taste nice. NOW IT TASTES HORRIBLE! I have tried Optislim Platinum, creamy coffee and Optislim Strawberry, both after New packaging and formula. It is hard enough to diet, now I have to force myself to drink them.  Show details

It's good, just make it right!

I have only tried the chocolate. I blended (using my little Blitz2Go blender) a couple of blocks of ice with the chocolate shake and chilled water and it tasted good.  Show details

Horrible shakes

We have been using Optifast but with the supply issues right now thought we'd give the Optislim banana and strawberry shakes a go. Afterall their bars aren't bad and how much different can they be, right? We are going to struggle to finish the box, they are too salty and don't combine well. Back to Optifast we run!  Show details

TOO SWEET, gross

From the first mouthful this stuff is just horrible.. it is so sickly sweet (I’m guessing to hide the saltiness of it) that it’s almost undrinkable, and it has a weird grainy curdled texture that is really unappealing. Tastes the opposite of healthy. Gross. Waste of money. Show details

Awful, wish i read reviews before purchasing

I tried the banana flavor and the taste was disgusting, completely undrinkable.
I felt very sick like i was about to throw up right after trying it and would never try it again.
0/10 definitely do not recommend.  Show details

Tastes revolting!

I usually buy Optifast, and switched to Optislim this week due to the cheaper price. The taste is revolting, I can barely drink it without gagging. The taste is so bad I checked the use by date, sure they must be off, but they are still in date to 2022. I've tried many other diet shakes in the past and enjoyed the flavour, but Optislim is just awful. It's also very watery and doesn't fully dissolve. I'm sure it works as well as other shake brands, but the taste is so disgusting I would not recommend it to anyone. Show details

BETTER THEN OPTIFAST

I've tried both OPTIFAST and OPTISLIM, chocolate, strawberry and chocolate mint.
I can't honestly fault optiSLIM, I was sceptical at first because of the difference in price between them both, but after trying optiSLIM I'll never go back to optiFAST. OptiSLIM manages my hunger for a good 2-3hrs and it actually tastes just like a real milkshake. Definitely recommend OPTISLIM!

If I could Zero Star it I would

I tried Vanilla and it made me feel very nauseated, and physically unwell. The taste was definatly "NOT GREAT" despite what the advertising said. There is absolutly no comparrison to the Aldi brand which i absoutly enjoyed. I would not reccomend this product. Show details

Mix it with a nutribullet not to bad

I have tried all the flavours only like the choc and vanilla but what i do is mix them in a nutri bullet with ice some fruit, nuts and protein power with water or almond milk.. not to shabby tastes pretty good then and goes a bit further in a nutribullet than without, otherwise they aren't very nice. Show details

Hate the taste - bitter

I've only tried the espresso which I tried to dissolve in water however no matter how much I shake, whisk or stir there are solids which don't dissolve. I'm going to complete the course for this one box to test its effectiveness in weight reduction but will then move onto another brand that doesn't smell, look or taste as bad. Show details

Tastes awful. Try optifast instead

I have tried vanilla and chocolate and both are undrinkable. I have successfully lost weight with celebrity slim in the past but was looking for an alternative this time. Initially wanted to go with optifast as I tried their coffee shake and it was tasty. Chose optislim as it was $55 for 42 sachets rather than $59 for 18 at chemist warehouse.
The taste of optislim is that bad I wish I had forked out the extra for the optifast...  Show details

Chocolate shake had unremarkable taste and consistency. I experienced upset stomach, headache & anxiety each time after only having one shake on two separate occasions. EXTREMELY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE from Optislim Show details

Absolutely disgusting taste

Disgusting taste.

Wrote to company after purchasing a 21 pack as it's completely undrinkable and they would not provide a refund.

Do not even chance this product as it's a waste of money.

Optifast is a much better product.
