ARBONNE – Green & Pure

Hi beautiful people, so sorry I’ve been a little inactive over the last few days, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying all of the bonfire festivities and of course the wine – I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. So after catching up on my parcels and products, I received last week a few samples from the lovely Alison who is an Arbonne Independent Consultant.

Arbonne is for you.

In my package I was sent RE9 Advanced 3&5 renewal serum, CALM cleanser, serum, moisturiser and eye gel. I was sent RE9 Advanced contouring eye cream, the Makeup Primer and the Perfecting liquid foundation.

Today i’ll go through the products for you and tell you everything you need to know!

Let’s get started shall we?

Waking up this morning I started with the CALM face prep collection; I used the Cleanser first which retails at £20.00. I found this cleanser washed away any left over makeup which I had missed taking off the night before. It cleaned my skin thoroughly without drying it out; it didn’t feel harsh at all. The benefits of this gentle cleanser are..

  1. Gently washes away makeup, dirt and oil without over drying or irritating skin.
  2. Extra gentle formula helps soothe easily irritated, sensitive skin by providing hydrating relief while cleansing.
  3. Allergy and dermatologist tested.
  4. Fragrance and colourant free.
  5. Formulated without gluten.

Following the cleanser, I used the Soothing Facial Serum which retails at £41.00. The serum instantly made my skin feel softer and smoother. I suffer from sensitive skin so I found this serum incredibly gentle and hydrating. It really helped prevent loss of moisture and tacked any rough and dry skin problem areas. Benefits of the Serum are…

  1. Lightweight serum absorbs quickly, locking in moisture to leave skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.
  2. Extra gentle formula helps soothe easily irritated, sensitive skin.
  3. Allergy and dermatologist tested.
  4. Fragrance and colourant free.
  5. Formulated without gluten.

Next up was the Gentle Daily Moisturiser which was so weightless and light on my face. What I loved about this product is it absorbed quickly into my skin, it didn’t leave my face feeling or looking greasy but instead, left it hydrated and glowing. This miracle moisturiser retails at £30.00 but trust me, it works! The benefits are..

  • .Lightweight, fast absorbing formula soothes and moisturises skin, leaving it feeling soft and refreshed
  • Provides hydrating relief from tightness and discomfort caused by dry skin
  • Allergy and dermatologist tested.
  • Fragrance and colourant free.
  • Formulated without gluten.

Finally in my CALM regime, I used the Soothing Eye Gel. This is a rollerball product which brightens your eyes instantly. The ball itself helps reduce any puffiness and eye bags along with hydrating your under eye area. I found that this product revitalised and cooled my eyes which gave them a more well rested appearance. The eye gel retails at £26.00 however you can purchase the CALM collection for £105.00 saving you £12.00.

After cleansing and moisturising my face with the CALM collection, I tried the Makeup Primer which retails at £32.00. I suffer with visibly large pores around my nose and cheek area; this primer diminished and shrank those immediately. Using your fingertips or a priming brush, smooth on a layer of the primer after using your moisturiser. It primes your skin creating a soft, balanced base for your foundation application.

Once my face was prepped and primed, I used the Perfecting Liquid Foundation in shade Buff. This satin textured foundation glides onto the skin effortlessly creating a look of tightened skin and minimised fine lines. If you’re wanting medium to full coverage and a foundation which has SPF15  but still gives you a naturally radiant complexion – you need to invest £37.00 into this gorgeous product.

Finally I want to tell you all about the RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum and Restorative Day Cream. Now the Renewal Serum retails at £52.00 for 30ml but this advanced formula WILL reduce your fine lines, lock in moisture, tighten your skin, minimise wrinkles, enhance smoothness, help elasticity, restore a natural and youthful glow and replenish your skins moisture. The benefits of this serum are..

  1. Antioxidants, essential botanicals and peptides work synergistically with the formula to protect the skin’s surface from future signs of ageing.
  2. Concentrated formula reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving skin a more lifted, firm appearance.
  3. Consistent use along with the Arbonne Intelligence® Genius Ultra, as part of a daily skincare regime helps skin appear radiant, even toned, smooth and firm with a significantly reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. Suitable for all skin type.
  5. Allergy tested and Gluten Free.

The Restorative Day Cream is £55.00 but is a great moisture lock in for dried out, damaged, sensitive skin. It moisturises your skins outer layer which enhances brightness and evens tone. Of course it also helps in reducing your pores, wrinkles and little fine lines also. Using this product, you need to apply generously to your face and neck.


Verdict

I was so impressed with these products, all natural based ingredients, I was slightly sceptical considering the promised results but I was proven wrong. I felt and noticed improvements and results immediately.

Another thing I love about Arbonne is that their packaging is beautiful, its so aesthetically pleasing to the eye, it’s gorgeous –  they would look great up on your shelf or vanity. Yes the products are slightly pricey however if you become a Preferred Client (you can sign up for this online), you get 20% off all products and you will receive special offers, products and discounts. Also, you get what you pay for with Arbonne; amazing and beneficial products and results.

Usually I put the products up over on my Products page for you to browse and shop but today, if you have ANY questions, want to join the Arbonne business or purchase any of their goods, please go and follow/DM veganproductsuk and Alison will be more than happy to help you!

That’s all for today guys, thanks so much for reading.
All my love, Levi-Maria.
