Healthy, Beautiful Skin isn’t an accident — it’s a result of understanding your skin type and creating a skincare regimen to meet your needs. Here, I can help you personalize a regimen for healthy looking, beautiful skin and overall wellness.

What type of products do you put on your skin? Because our skin is very thin, it takes up to 30 seconds for skin care products to be absorbed into our bloodstream and then to the liver. Many products actually clog pores instead of helping them and more than few of the chemicals are considered carcinogenic (potential to cause cancer). Finding skin care products that are free of such toxins, will help with your overall health and wellbeing.

My personal favorite skin care brand is Arbonne. I use it everyday and recommend to everyone. One of the most important reasons why, is that Arbonne has a very strict ingredient policy Pure, Safe, Beneficial™
It’s not just what’s in their products, but what’s not in them.

PURE because Arbonne personal care products are formulated without:
» Animal products or by-products (vegan certified)
» Parabens
» Formaldehyde-donating preservatives
» PABA
» Synthetic dyes
» Triclosan
» Hydroquinone
» Gluten
» These petroleum-based ingredients: benzene, mineral oil, petrolatum or petroleum jelly, phthalates, and toluene.

My second most important reason is because Arbonne is SAFE and dedicated to uncompromising safety, they develop product formulas based on the most objective, conclusive and scientifically supported sources available.

  • Following stringent internal safety policy, abide by the standards set by:
    » Health Canada
    » U.S. government agencies: Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
    » Government agencies abroad, including the Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and UK      Food Standards Agency
    » The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS)
    » The Personal Care Products Council (formerly the CTFA)
    » The International Fragrance Association (IFRA)
  • And by the standards of cosmetic safety set by the:
    » European Commission Cosmetics Directive
    » European Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals agency (REACH)
    » Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR)
    » European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS)

And if that wasn’t enough for you, here is my third reason for loving and trusting Arbonne so much… it’s truly BENEFICIAL specially formulated to deliver targeted results and a sensorial experience. Best-in-class formulation benefits from the latest advances in research, consumer opinion, and input from their distinguished Scientific Advisory Board. By understanding the biology of the skin and hair, human  anatomy, physiology, and other health sciences, Arbonne develops botanically based formulas that carefully and honestly deliver on their promise to you. To ensure reliable results, the highest-performing ingredients and plant-derived complexes available are selected, using ingredients of standardized quality. From traditional medicinal plants to high-tech extracts, Arbonne harnesses nature at its best for products that promote beauty, wellness and vitality.

Arbonne products are differentiated by:
» Novel ingredients
» Proprietary blends
» Sophisticated ingredient delivery systems
» Sensorial and aesthetic body-mind-spirit experience
» In-house and independent clinical results
» Consistent, measurable efficacy

  1. Agnes,

    This is an excellent, honest review that’s really needed in my view.

    Most people aren’t aware the vast majority of skin and cosmetic companies use very abrasive and sometimes even toxic chemicals in their products to give them the color, smell and marketability.

    It’s so refreshing to know Arbonne only uses the purest ingredients and have the awareness and social responsibility not to test on animals – great for both humans and animals!

    I would support a company like this every day of the week over one that is all about profit over anything else.

    Keep up the great work and I hope this company takes over the world! 🙂

    1. Hello Sam, and thank you.

      I’m glad you agree, and that is excatly why I support and am grateful for Arbonne. It’s a quality product, with consumer health and safety as priority… and results! 

      Cheers

  2. Hi there,

    As I understand this product is not a “miracle product”. You emphasize at the beginning the importance of understanding the skin type and in my personal case, I have tried a lot of products that do not work in the long-term. How would Arbonne be different? I want to know if this product works for men too.

    Note: I read this blog post by accident, ’cause my wife was reading it 🙂

    Thanks a lot.

    1. Hi Frank, thank you for taking the time to read my page. Knowing your skin type and what you want to achieve is important to choose the right products in order to obtain best results from any brand. I have tried many products as well in my past and most of them simply did nothing for me. As a Makeup Artist its my job to be familiar with all kinds of skin care brands out there, and not to mention I deal with different people and different skin types all the time… even those of a problem nature such as eczema, acne or rosacea. I have to know which brand/product to use on which client… having said that I obviously done my research and long story short Arbonne is by far the best in my opinion for 2 reasons.

      1. They are botanically based, they are 100% vegan, cruelty-free and formulated without gluten, mineral oil and other harmful toxic chemicals. Im not sure about you, but to me that means a lot. Arbonne follows European Standards when it comes to ingredient policy, which means no toxic ingredients and much less allergic reactions from users reported in comparison to department store brands. I’d love for you to read my post I wrote on that. 

      2. I saw results in my 1st week. Again, that is huge… everyone wants to see results and with Arbonne you will. 

      I am spending money on safer products, and I get results… and yes Arbonne does have an Anti-aging Mens line.

      I truly hope this helps Frank,

      Cheers

  3. Hey there! I found your article very interesting and informative. I used to have a lot of acne when I was in high school and I used a lot of product too. Now all of it are gone but it left scars on my face. I read your review about arbonne. Do you think that it is effective to remove acne scars?

    1. Hi John

      Thank you for your comment, I have many friends who had or have
      the same problem. And there is this one product that I recommend for this
      reason.  Arbonne Intelligence®
      Genius Nightly Resurfacing Pads and Resurfacing Solution
       I use
      this to gain elasticity and firmness, reduce the look of dark spots and fine
      lines for skin that feels smooth. This treatment will remove the dead,
      rough layer of skin to help the appearance of a smooth & toned skin. It
      will take some time but if used regularly (however, no more than 3 times a
      week) you will see overall improvement
      with scars, brown spots and wrinkles
      . I swear by this product. It;s like getting a mini Microdermabrasion.

      Your other
      option for your scars would be the much more expansive one, which would be a Microdermabrasion Treatment that can only be done by a professional esthetician and can cost
      anywhere from $200 per session. And it would take at least 10 sessions
      depending on the severity of the condition of the skin. You can google Microdermabrasion services in your area and obtain a quote.

      I hope I was helpful John, there are solutions out there for
      you 🙂

  4. Agnes, this article was probably the most informative that I have read in a while. I actually use a couple of the products that you went into great detail above. My wife usually buys me RE9 for men, because she recommends this product to her male clients at the nail salon and spa she owns.
    I look around on Facebook and see my old friends that I went to school with and the majority of them look a lot older than me, this is probably because I use a couple of products such as the RE9 Advanced anti-aging moisturizer, the shave cream, and the eye repair. So I know first hand how beneficial the products are!

  5. Hi Matthew

    I appreciate your honest feedback from your own experience.
    Im happy to hear that you are familiar with Arbonne RE9 Men’s skincare and seeing results. My husband is using it too … Haha, I obviously want him to use best products.

    Cheers
    Agnes

  6. Hi, I have tried many products to help even out my skin tone. I have dark patches on my face mostly around my chin area. I am interested in Genius Nightly Resurfacing Pads & Solution but they are costly. Do you have a smaller option available to see if it works first before I spend so much money?

    I love your site. It’s informative and easy to follow.

    Katherine

    1. Hello Katherine

      Thank you for visiting.
      Genius Resurfacing Pads would surely be the right choice to target this issue. They seem costly yes, but there are 60 pads included + the solution which will last you most likely for 6 months. I guess when I do the math it doesn’t sound costly at all. But I do understand where you’re coming from since you have never tried the product. Arbonne does not provide us with a smaller qty for purchase. All I can suggest for you is to research all the great reviews on this product and success stories on internet. I hope this helps Katherine 🙂

  7. Hi, Agnes,

    Arbonne products sound really intriguing! I pick very diligently what cosmetics to use, in terms of safety and quality of the ingredients.
    But Arbonne seems to be a supreme quality and no wonder it has so many certificates!
    Really impressive and I will try this brand!
