WHAT’S THE CRAIC WITH ARBONNE?

Arbonne skincare review

 

Hi everyone!

Today I’m bringing you a skincare review…except this is a very exciting one as I have tried and tested five products from the Arbonne range. I was contacted by the lovely Maimie Yelland an Arbonne consultant to try out one of their skincare ranges for myself. I told her I have fair and dry skin and that I wouldn’t necessarily say my skin is sensitive to many products. Maimie recommended I try out the FC5 Moisture Fresh Complex range.

THE BRAND

Arbonne is a Swiss ultra-premium brand and the products are botanically based, Vegan Certified, pH correct, Hypoallergenic, Dermatologist Tested, Certified Gluten-Free, Kosher Certified, Drug Free and Cruelty-Free. They claim to have no hidden nasties! Sounds good right? So I delved in to try these products out for myself.

Arbonne Review

Arbonne Cleanser Review

FC5 HYDRATING CLEANSER FRESHNER 
For a Cleanser I usually use the Soap & Glory – peaches and cream. I’ve been using this for a good three months now so to break away from my usual routine – I was a little bit apprehensive to say the least! Nevertheless, I gave it a go. After taking my make-up off at night I took a small amount of the hydrating cleanser and I massaged it into my face in circular motion, ensuring my whole face was covered. I then left the cleanser on my face for a couple of minutes before heating up a clean flannel in a bowl of steamy hot water. I then placed the flannel over the top of my face and pressed gently to remove the cleanser. Once I had done this my face felt refreshed and rejuvenated. The consistency feels quite thick and feels extremely moisturising on the skin. I like to apply my cleanser in this way as it gives you a more intensified feeling of cleanliness after a day of heavy makeup. I have no idea why I was apprehensive because I genuinely feel like this could be my next full time cleanser! I rate it a 9/10 and recommend it especially for dry skin types.

Arbonne Day Lotion Review

Next up is the NURTURING DAY LOTION DAY WITH SPF 20. I have tried a number of different day creams and I tend to prefer a creamy consistency to moisturise the skin. I have a lot of dry areas that need constant rehydration. For me, this day cream was very thick, moisturising and can easily be used before priming your skin. This product is SPF 20 which is great to protect you on an everyday basis. I give this a 7/10.

Makeup Primer Review - Arbonne

ARBONNE MAKEUP PRIMER

I also tried the ARBONNE PRIMER which funnily enough reminded me of the Benefit the PoorFessional Pro balm primer, although I loved the ARBONNE primer more than the Benefit one. For me the Benefit primer becomes quite bitty in texture and separates as you apply it, leaving an ugly residue which isn’t a good base before you apply foundation. This was different, it was easy to apply to the skin and left a smooth, soft, silky base ready to apply a full face of makeup. I also noticed that the primer made my foundation stay on slightly longer than it normally would without the primer. Because of its thick consistency it smoothed over fine lines, blemishes and spots nicely. Overall I give this Primer at a whopping 9/10.

Arbonne Hydrating Eye Cream Review

HYDRATING EYE CREAM – I am quite naughty when it comes to eye cream and I don’t usually include an eye cream in my skincare routine. I know, I know its bad please don’t shout at me 😄 I just don’t have the time to be putting three or four products on my face before I go to bed! Busy lifestyle and all that. It will probably catch up with me! Having said that this eye cream was a great consistency. It was thick, creamy and nourishing for those pesky under eye areas. The next day after prepping my eyes with this product : it reduced my tired looking eyes and my skin felt hydrated. I give this product a 7/10!

Arbonne Night Cream Review

Finally the MOISTURISING NIGHT CREAM. This, again had a very thick consistency (I’m guessing because this range is particularly good for dry skin the formulas are thick and creamy bases). I love an extra creamy night time product, you’re asleep for around 8 hours and those 8 hours are vital for rejuvenating your skin to prepare you for the next day ahead.  I give the night cream a 9/10.

Thanks for reading my Arbonne review. I haven’t tried these products before but I will be making future purchases. I love that the brand are vegan certified using only beneficial healthy ingredients it’s definitely one you should try too!
