Price: From $50.00 AUD
Where to Buy: Arbonne
I was recently contacted by an Arbonne consultant who kindly offered to send me some samples to try. Amongst some make up samples, I was sent a sample pack containing skincare products from the Arbonne RE9 Advanced and SeaSource ranges. I was firstly struck by the quality of the catalogue, I found myself reading it on a regular basis, picking out products that I might want to buy.
To become a Preferred Client, you pay a $45 fee however from this point you get 20% off the RRP of all products! In addition to this, if you spend over $385 RRP in one order, you get to pick a further $145 worth of products for only $29! Sounds too good to be true, right? I thought this as well but decided to sign up and got a whole stack of stuff that normally would have cost much more, you also get a free product with your first order!
Arbonne’s products are completely vegan; never tested on animals and contain no animal-derived ingredients or by-products. They are also free of formaldehyde-donating preservatives, petroleum-based ingredients such as benzene and mineral oil.
RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser – $60.00 AUD
Formulated with algae extract and sea buckthorn oil, this Smoothing Facial Cleanser does just what it says. After using, my skin (and hands) felt softer and smoother. It is the perfect start to the RE9 Advanced skincare regime and successfully removes any dirt or makeup you may have left on your face from the night before too!
RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner – $52.00 AUD
This antioxidant rich toner comes in a misting bottle to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. When applied to the face your skin immediately feels fresh, cool and dewy.
RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum – $79.00 AUD
The Intensive Renewal Serum contains kudzu, stabilised vitamin C, marine lavender and beech tree which actively support collagen to diminish fine lines and firm skin. When applied it has a cooling effect, and although very wet at first, is absorbed by skin quickly.
RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Créme – $75.00 AUD
When gently dabbed around the eyes, the Corrective Eye Cream also supports collagen to lift the skin as well as diminish dark circles. You can feel the skin tingle when applied and when the feeling stops, the eye area feels smooth and tight.
RE9 Restorative Day Créme – $70.00 AUD
The Restorative Day Créme leaves the skin beautifully soft and taut. The SPF 15 factor helps too, preparing the skin perfectly for whatever the day has to throw at it!
RE9 Night Repair Créme – $119.00 AUD
This Night Repair Créme is SO THICK and you think it’s maybe too thick but when you apply it to the skin it all makes sense. It has a balm like quality to it and it sinks into the skin with no trouble at all. If winter is starting to dry out your skin, this is definitely the product to rescue it!
The Purifying Sea Soak’s active ingredient is Atoligomer®, a sodium-free, spray-dryed seawater which re-minerlises and vitalises. Perfect for relaxing in the bath and having your very own spa treatment at home .
Renewing Body Gelée – $67.00 AUD
This Renewing Body Gelée uses sea and botanical extracts to lock in skin renewal. Unlike some moisturisers, it isn’t greasy, just liquid goodness that is quickly absorbed by the skin!
Detoxifying Rescue Wash – $55.50 AUD
This stuff is nice, you sometimes come across a product that you know is really doing something good for your skin and this Detoxifying Rescue Wash is one of them. It contains Sea algae extract acts as an antioxidant, impurities are lifted away and moisture is locked in tight.
Makeup Primer – $50.00 AUD
This Makeup Primer is PHENOMENAL! I was sent a sample initially and fell in love so I bought the full sized bottle without any hesitation. It creates a layer over the skin that leaves you with a perfect canvas for flawless makeup!
Perfecting Liquid Foundation – $55.00 AUD
Another wonderful cosmetic product, this foundation rules! It’s more expensive than what I would usually pay for makeup but with the 20% discount it was sure worth it. Most importantly it creates an even finish on the skin, as well as sun protection plus it’s long lasting!
Although more pricey than what I would usually pay for skincare and cosmetics, the Arbonne range is fantastic. I will definitely be making more purchases in the future and would urge you to give it a try if you’re after something new! The packaging is so expensive looking and the products themselves don’t disappoint either.
