I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to try the products by Kristin, an Arbonne representative in Jersey. They don’t do things by halves either! Whereas many companies send you teeny tiny samples to test, Arbonne go all out and give you the full sized products to use to your hearts contact. Which suited me just fine!
I’ve been on the look out for a new product range for my morning and evening routine, so the invitation to trial Arbonne’s couldn’t have come at a better time.
Arbonne was developed in Switzerland in 1975 and is the brainchild of Petter Mørck, a group of leading bio-chemists, biologists and herbalists, who worked tirelessly in conjunction with natures finest ingredients to develop the range. Arbonne’s skin care products are based on botanical principles and hit the US market in 1980 and have expanded their reach ever since, now being shared throughout the world.
These two golden packages were delivered to me last week, with instruction to use them over the coming week and see what I thought, so of course, I got stuck straight in!
Firstly, I sampled the facial cleansing range, RE9 Advanced. This 5 step range included a Smoothing Facial Cleanser, Regenerating Toner, Intensive Renewal Serum, Corrective Eye Creme and a Restorative Day Creme or Night Repair Creme depending on the time of day of course.
I love the packaging of all the products, the style is simple, clean and the vibrant colours give the impression of being restorative and invigorating. Even better than this, 90% of Arbonne’s packaging is recyclable, which means they’re doing their bit for the environment too.
So, as I said, I got stuck in to using the products, and I’m so glad I did! I followed the facial product instructions in the catalogue and enjoyed every minute. First you use the cleansing wash, followed by toner, then intensive lift serum if you want to, although this shouldn’t be used daily only occasionally. It does give you the feeling of an instant great lift to your skin though!
Following this, use the intensive renewal serum. This is a truly great step in the process. All the products smell truly amazing, natural and very good for you, but this serum feels like it’s working from the minute you put it on your skin! Just a word of warning, due to the richness and natural products in these wonderful products, make sure you avoid your eyes unless it’s an eye specific treatment, or else it will hurt!
The eye corrective creme is great, it really does wake you up in the morning and relaxes your eyes after a hard days work in the evening.
At the end of the whole trial, my skin felt amazing. Quite frankly, I’d already decided on what I was ordering after 2 days of using the products, they’re great! My skin felt softer, fresher and looked generally more healthy and alive! I am sold!
I also used the amazing hair products they provided. I normally have to switch hair products every few days, as my hair seems to get used to my shampoo and conditioner and becomes heavy and greasy; however, I used Arbonne day after day and not once did it make my hair heavy! (RESULT!) I am so pleased with it, it somehow completely nourished my hair, whilst not over doing it and making it heavy, a great result which I’ve been seeking out for a long time!
Thank you Arbonne for my trial, my order is already on it’s way … I am converted!
