Arbonne.....My Newest Love....Annnnnnd A Giveaway!!

A few weeks ago I was asked to review some products from Arbonne for a friend who sells it. I've tried a few of their products before and loved it, so I jumped at the chance!! It's hard to find products that agree with my skin, and it's even harder to find some that are safe, natural and aren't tested on animals. Arbonne is all of that and more. You can read all about their products and ingredients here. Andrea gave me some of their RE9 anti-aging face products to try out and I have got to say that I was so happy. Being a Mom who is going all day and even some nights, I look and feel tired. The first morning I started using their products I took a picture of myself.......with no makeup on. Scary. My face was puffy, oily looking and you could see some fine lines around my eyes and forehead. Not happy about that. I started with RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser. It's smooth, light and smells very nice. More importantly though, my face was clean. Coming from someone who usually only washes her face with soap, that says a lot. Next came the RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner. I don't think I've ever used a toner in my entire life. I liked it! Made my face feel even cleaner and very smooth. Lovely. I was very excited to try the next product......RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Crème. Ohhhh yesss!!!!!!! Bye bye puffy eyes!!! I can not stress enough how great it worked. Every Mom needs to have this on hand. Now, as much as I loved the eye cream this next product was just as amazing...........RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel. You apply it, let it sit for a few minutes before putting your day lotion on. I already have pretty nice skin and very few wrinkles, but after using this gel my skin looked sooooooo good, and it felt so smooth. I know that this all sounds like a lot of lotion on your face, but believe me, it's lightweight, not oily and is absorbed very quickly. I was actually thinking of not using this next product because I was afraid it would be too much, too oily, but I used it anyways. The RE9 Advanced Restorative Day Crème SPF 20. But a girl has gotta have some SPF!! It was smooth and, like I said, lightweight. For the first time in months I left the house with no makeup on. Brave, I know. :) At night I used RE9 Advanced Night Repair Crème and RE9 Advanced Age-Defying Neck Cream. Not that my neck needed it, but hey, doesn't hurt to prevent some sagging!! LOL!! Here are some pictures of before and after. You can't tell much of a difference, but I sure can.....

I can't believe I just posted those. LOL!!!

She also gave me Arbonne Aromassentials Awaken Sea Salt Scrub to just enjoy, and boy did I ever!! My skin was so soft and smooth. I didn't need to use my lotion afterwards either. Needless to say, I absolutely loved Arbonne. It's a bit pricey, but you don't have to use much of it, so it can last for quite a while. Well worth the money. Andrea was also kind enough to give me something to giveaway!! YAY!! My very first one! It's the FC5 Invigorating Body Cleanser. It retails for $23, but one of you will get it for FREEE!!!!! All you have to do is post a comment here and I will randomly choose a winner. I will not except anonymous comments, you must have a valid website/blog and email. Sorry. I'd like to know who I'm giving this to. I'll close the giveaway in a week. Plenty of time to get  enough people to comment. If you're reading this on you have to go directly to my blog and leave a comment there, I won't count any comments made on JM. Sorry. :)

Good luck!!

This girl could definitely use some new skin care! My Aveeno just isn't cutting it anymore.

Wow....I"m totally resisting the urge to say "you missed a spot!!" LOL. I've prolly never entered a contest like this before. First time for everything. Really want to try that Instant Lift stuff (not on my face though).

Sounds like a great line! What girl doesn't love free beauty products? (And body wash is my weakness, as sad as that might sound.)
