Are you the sort of person who appreciates time-tested skin care products that are gentle on the skin and the environment? Arbonne is a classic, natural skin-care line that has existed for 38 years. Though we first became aware of the pioneering company in 1995, it was founded in 1980 to promote vegan, botanical, cruelty-free cosmetics. The company offers products that appeal to every age and/or skin type. It boasts recyclable packaging, including shipping boxes, uses soy inks, and utilizes 67 percent less water than it did five years ago.
The website at www.arbonne.com is basic but user-friendly. It showcases a dizzying array of temptations. One of our favorite offerings is the Calm Soothing Facial Serum. This product retails at $49.00 and is worth every penny. The tiny bottle packs a wallop. You only need a few drops of this elixir to cover your entire face with soothing bliss. Just squeeze the eyedropper into your hand and apply directly to your cheeks, chin and forehead. The serum soaks right into your skin, without leaving a sticky residue.
Follow the facial serum with a generous dab of Arbonne’s Daily Moisturizer. For $44.00, this is a high-quality product you can use every day. It lasts for weeks! The product has a sweet but delicate note, and your skin will glow after you apply it. You can use the moisturizer any time of day. We like to swirl into onto our faces in the morning after a shower, yet have been known to apply it right before bed.
The Calm Gentle Facial Cleanser ($30.00) is also mild enough for daily use. Its gentle foaming action washes away grit and other impurities. If you get some in your eyes, don’t fret—they won’t sting a bit. Your cheeks will feel cleansed, but never sticky or tacky. You can follow this cleanser with an exfoliating product, but it’s really not necessary, since the cleanser does such an excellent job.
Last, give your eyes a treat with Calm Soothing Eye Gel ($33.00). This product is great to tame baggy or puffy eyes. It’s packaged in a long, narrow tube which features a smooth roller for easy application to your trouble spots. Afterwards, the gel effortlessly hydrates tired areas underneath your eyes and gives you a perkier, more awake appearance. And hey—we can all use some of that, right?
Arbonne is a fabulous product that has stood the test of time. It’s a bit spendy, but we’re certain you’re worth the investment. Buy several boxes and give your skin a treat!
