A while ago i was invited to an opening event of a new children's hairdresser's and boutique called Pikku in Gosforth which looks amazing but i sadly could not attend. However the lovely woman who invited me Victoria asked if i would like to try out some skincare and baby products from Arbonne whom she is a consultant for. Having heard of how good Arbonne products were meant to be i was eager to find out if they were actually as good as everyone said.
Arbonne was developed in Switzerland and has been around for 35 years so it is a product that has stood the test of time. Arbonne specialise's in pure, safe and beneficial products. All products are 100 % vegan and are made with botanical ingredients and contain no harmful chemicals making them kinder on your skin.
The packaging on all the products is gorgeous and has a rather luxurious feel to it and you can tell that they are high quality products. I think the fact that you can not buy any Arbonne products in the shops also makes them feel a bit more exclusive and luxurious too as you have to buy them from a special Arbonne consultant who is on hand to offer you advice and ensure you buy the correct products for your needs, and who also know the products inside and out and are so passionate about the products they sell.
I was offered a range of different products to test out which were some skincare products, body care products and some baby skincare products and this is what i thought of them.
I was sent two skincare products the Hydrating Body Lotion and the Reactivating Body Serum. As i mentioned the packaging on the products is really nice, they were so easy to use and had a pump on the top to dispense the lotions so they were super easy to use. They smelt lovely a nice, citrus, fresh and clean scent.
I found that i only needed a tiny amount of these products as they really do go a long way, so they will last you ages. The body lotion was a white cream and it just soaked into my skin straight away there was no greasiness's like you can get with some cheaper creams, it left my skin feeling super soft and hydrated all day long. And the Reactivating Serum left my skin feeling fresh and radiating.
I was also sent some skincare products which were Exfoliating New Cell Scrub, Hydrating Cleanser And Freshener, Nurturing Day Lotion with SPF 20, Moisturising Night Cream and a Hydrating Eye Cream. Again all these products were in nice packaging and had a nice fresh citrus scent to them.
I used them daily for a week and the results were amazing, after just one day of use my skin felt so soft and smooth and even my partner commented on how nice my skin looked and said it was glowing. The Exfoliating New Cell Scrub was amazing , it left my skin feeling really refreshed and smooth even after the first use.
The Hydrating Cleanser and Freshener really did leave my skin feeling hydrated and fresh. And the Nurturing Day Lotion has a built in SPF of 20 to protect skin from harmful rays and sun damage. It is a really nice cream that soaks into you skin straight away and you only need a tiny amount and left my skin feeling super soft.
The Moisturising Night Cream was really luxurious and again i only needed a tiny amount and it soaked into my skin leaving it feeling super soft and hydrated. The Hydrating Eye Cream left my eye area feeling firmer and softer. My skin felt amazing and as you only need a tiny amount of each product as they are so nourishing they will last you ages.
I was also sent some Arbonne baby skincare products to try out which included Hair and Body Wash, Body Lotion, Nappy Cream and Sunscreen with SPF 30. I did not try the Sunscreen as it is too cold for that at the moment and i did not use the Nappy cream either as neither of my babies have had nappy rash yet.
I did try the Hair and Body Wash and the Body Lotion though on both Sophia aged one and Jacob aged seven months. The Hair and Body wash had a lovely fresh scent to it and a small amount lathers up well in the bath. I was a bit unsure about using this on Sophia as she has really sensitive skin and eczema but as it is made with all natural products and contains no nasty chemicals like so many other baby products do i thought i would give it a go. And she was fine with it and had no itching, she smelt amazing after her bath too nice and fresh and it was a nice change to her normal bath products.
The Body Lotion was amazing on her eczema prone skin as the redness and itching seemed to disappear a bit when i used this on her. This left both of my babies skin feeling very soft, nourished and fresh smelling.
Overall i was very impressed with all of the Arbonne products that i tried out. The packaging is fab , the products are fab and you really do only need a tiny amount of each product as a little goes a long way. My skin was the softest and nicest that it has ever been after just one day of using these products and i now know why they are so recommend. Arbonne products are a little more expensive then some skincare products but they are made with all natural ingredients and they will last you ages and in my opinion are worth the money you pay for them.
If you would like to know about Arbonne products then you can contact Victoria the lovely consultant i met as she knows everything there is to know about these products and she can be found on Facebook if you have any enquiries or would like to know about sampling any products yourself to see how amazing they are. Or if you would like to buy some of the products i tried then you can buy them on the website http://www.arbonne.com/pws/victoriaanderson/tabs/home.aspx but you need Victoria's ID code which is 441208159.
* Disclosure : I was sent some Arbonne products for the purpose of this review, however all words and opinions are my own honest account of the products i received.
