loyal to my brand – and a giveaway!

i’ve been wanting to talk about my favorite skin care brand on the blog for a while, but i kept forgetting as i sat down to write my posts. today is finally the day!

up until about 2 years ago, i didn’t have a go-to skin care product or brand. i usually picked up whatever face wash and moisturizer were cheapest at target or walgreens and went with it. my skin was never terrible, but it was never good either. i wore a lot of concealer and NEVER went in public without wearing makeup. i was hoping that as i got older, my skin would settle down and the breakouts would stop, but they didn’t. 😦 i still didn’t change my routine, though.

that is, until i attended an arbonne party that my friend erin invited me to. i tried the products, and liked them. but didn’t order anything that day. instead, i took home a sample pack and agreed to host a party a couple weeks later.

at my party, i was talked into ordering the anti-aging skin care line. i liked the sample that i tried and i figured that since my cheap-o products hadn’t been working for me, what would be the harm in trying these better products. well, my products arrived and i have never looked back! 🙂 my skin is much healthier than it every was and i only very rarely get pimples anymore *knock on wood*!

now, after exploring all of their other personal care products and cosmetics, i am 100% an arbonne junkie. don’t believe me? check out my medicine cabinet.

and my shower shelf:

almost everything is arbonne!

these products are high quality, contain no animal products or byproducts, and are free of many ingredients that you often find in skin care products that aren’t so good for you (paba, mineral oil). yes, they are a bit pricey. but, i think they are so worth it. i am on seriously, the tightest budget ever, and i make it work for these products and i signed up as a preferred client so i get a 35% discount on all of my orders.

*i just realized it sounds like i am advertising for the products – nope, i just love them that much!*

so, do you want to try some of these amazing products yourself? well thank your lucky stars! one winner will get all of the following:

sample packs of the seasource detox sea salts (amazing for soaking in after a tough workout – it really helps ease sore muscles), the fortifying hair mask (makes your hair feel like silk!), and the makeup primer (i use this every day – it’s a great base for makeup, or just gets rid of shine if you want to skip makeup), and the re9 advanced line (has a face wash, toner, serum, eye cream, day cream with spf, and night cream).

plus full sizes of:

the night cream (seriously, the silkiest moisturizer i have ever used – and this will last your forever because you only need a tiny bit each night!) and the transforming lift gelee (i don’t use this product that often, but it is supposed to tighten and firm your skin – usually recommended for cheekbones and foreheads).

and a full set of makeup brushes! i love these brushes – i use my set every single day! 🙂

so, that’s a lot of stuff, huh? and it’s all amazing!

    This is GREAT! I went to a friends Arbonne party (to be a good friend, bc i am anything but someone to buy or go to one of these parties) I ended up signing up for one myself-bought a crap ton of stuff and am obsessed with the RE9 collection:)

    I am cheap with some skin care, but I can’t live without Clean + Clear’s benzoyl peroxide acne cream. I used to have prescription acne creams, but this works BETTER than those ever did. I also love their grapefruit facial scrub. But, I have been looking for a great anti-aging product for some time now, so the Argonne stuff sounds fabulous!

  7. I’ve heard a lot about arbonne but have never tried it since I’m on like a bajillion different washes, creams, and meds from the dermatologist. Do they have makeup, too?

    ooh, awesome! I’ve heard such great things about arbonne, but I’ve never tried it for myself. and my skin is somewhere in the inbetween teenage years/early twenties/heading into my 30s stage and it’s been so hard to find products that I like!

    lately, my favorite has been a coconut facewash from Alba and green tea moisturizer from them, too.
