Trying it out: Arbonne – life+running

Trying it out: Arbonne

A little while back when I was between face care products, my friend Amanda convinced me to try out some Arbonne products. I’d heard of Arbonne before, and I actually have been using their mascara and makeup primer for years. I borrowed Amanda’s RE9 Advanced Extra Moisture kit for a week to see if it would be a good fit for me. I fell in love with the day cream, the toner, and the night repair cream. But those were products that I still had plenty of what I was currently using, so I haven’t ordered them — yet. I’ve been experimenting with oil pulling, and I’ll be blogging about that soon, but if that doesn’t work out for me, I’ll be getting this kit. What sold me on Arbonne wasn’t just the quality, but the types of ingredients that they use in their products.

Here’s Amanda’s speil:

Arbonne is an awesome company, and I don’t say that lightly. I am a full time artist, and I’ve never been a super girly-girl that needs a lot of products or maintenance. Most of the time I spend alone in the studio so who cares if I do my makeup?! Then a friend of mine started selling Arbonne, and I got “roped into” attending a free facial party. Ugh. Not my thing. I was incredibly surprised when I left having scheduled to host my own party and planning to purchase tons of products. What? Who am I

Thing is, Arbonne is all about education, being environmentally friendly, and being HEALTHY. I pay attention to the awful things I put IN my body, but I’d never thought about what I put ON it. I don’t eat high fructose corn syrup, tons of soy, over-processed crap; but I was buying all my skincare products for cheap at Target. Do you know what animal by-products are? Google it only if you’re really dedicated. While I’m not vegan, I love that Arbonne is. They’re also not simply a skincare/makeup company — I own skincare, hair care, and nutrition products. My personal Arbonne success has been nutrition: I started drinking the protein shakes (and having the occasional fit-chews to combat snacking) and have lost more than 15 lbs in the past two months.

So, to end my spiel:

Arbonne personal care products are formulated without:

  • Animal products or animal by-products

What’s your favorite skincare regime? Have you ever tried Arbonne? 
Side note — I’m not ever going back to my old mascara. This stuff stays on even after the gym, and it comes off with WATER. I don’t know how they do it, but I love it!
