I love Arbonne, as in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I was introduced to their products a few years ago when an old co-worker of mine hosted an Arbonne party at work. I was instantly hooked, as we got to try out everything, which was so much fun. What I loved most about Arbonne was that their products were made from high quality ingredients. In fact, Arbonne products are made from natural herbal and botanical ingredients. I hate putting anything harsh or artificial on my face, as I have an auto-immune skin disease called Rosacea, which causes extreme redness, and I have Blepheritis, which causes my eyelids to be chronically inflamed and causes my eyelashes to fall out. Plus, I have a connective tissue disease that causes a loss of collagen in my skin. My skin is very sensitive, and of all the products I’ve ever tested on it, Arbonne truly works the best. I’ve bought everything from their entire RE9 skin care line, various other lotions, sugar scrub, Intelligence exfoliating masque, and their plumping lip gloss. When I found out that an Arbonne consultant was willing to send me Arbonne’s Makeup Primer to review for this blog, I was thrilled. Not only have I not tried out this product yet, but I haven’t been able to purchase any Arboone products for the past since, since I am unemployed and feel guilty whenever I spend any money. So, needless to say, I was very grateful for the opportunity.
This primer is applied before you put on your make up, in order to smooth the appearance of your skin. It is supposed to create a flawless canvas that holds your makeup in place all day. After my first use, I instantly noticed that my skin felt like silk. Not only did it go on smooth, but it doesn’t have any scent, which I love, as I currently use another high-end primer and it stinks. I absolutely love how Arbonne’s primer glides on my skin. I don’t use liquid makeup, just powder, and I can honestly tell you that this primer really does diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pores and other imperfections. I even took a picture of my bare face that first day, while wearing the primer (and no makeup, yikes!) on the right side only. If you look at my left side, where I’ve circled my wrinkles, you can tell an instant difference when you compare it to the right side of my face. Had I thought to take a picture in full makeup, you would have been amazed at the transformation of my skin.
At age 40, I need all the extra help I can get to stay looking younger than I am. For the past few weeks, I have been using this primer before I apply my makeup. This vitamin-rich makeup primer left my skin smooth, clean and blemish free. It didn’t irritate my eyes or skin one bit, as I knew it wouldn’t. Arbonne’s makeup primer is hands down the best primer I have ever used. I am throwing out my other stinky primer and will cry the day my Arbonne primer runs out. Hopefully, I will have a job by then, and can become a preferred client again.
Arbonne was born in 1980 and it began with a simple formula: Develop and distribute skin care products that are pure, safe, beneficial and effective. Now, 30 years later, Arbonne International has grown from a skin care line – to include color, aromatherapy, nutrition and weight loss products – and continues the tradition of producing products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results. The wonderful thing about Arbonne is that it’s not just about great products; it’s also about great people.
Arbonne’s proprietary formulas are formulated in Switzerland, and made in the United States. All of Arbonne’s products are:
- Botanically Based
- pH Correct
- Dermatoligist Tested
- Never Tested on Animals
- Formulated without animal products or by products
- Formulated without mineral oil
- Formulated without dyes of chemical fragrances
Ashely also sent me a RE9 Advanced Sample pack. I’ve never used the RE9 Advanced products, just the old RE line, which I dearly loved using. I noticed a difference in the new and improved RE9 line, and saw visible effects in my skin as well. My skin has never looked more clear or brighter! I have good news if you are interested in this product, as she is offering her customers $100 off complete Arbonne RE9 Advanced Anti-Aging Skin Care Sets right now. This $100 off offer ends April 15th.
