What is Arbonne? The Story Behind Arbonne.

The modest beginnings of Arbonne began in Switzerland in 1975. Founder, Petter Morck sought to create a beauty company that didn’t sacrifice the safety of the consumer or the plant for effectiveness. Building a team of chemists and herbalists, the Arbonne company was born.

With the decision to take the route of many well known direct selling beauty companies, Arbonne was able to rapidly expand with the Arbonne skin care products selling across the world through Arbonne consultants. It was that growth that propelled Arbonne to expand into other areas of the beauty and health space, to the company you see today offering Arbonne skincare, bath and body, supplements, hair care, and makeup.

Through continuing to expand and grow, Arbonne has been able to stand by its original mission and philosophies to make sustainable beauty products that really work. With the Arbonne products vegan formulations, recyclable packaging, and renewable resources, this is a brand that has been leading the way in this space.

Arbonne Skincare Products 

Since its launch, Arbonne has grown into quite a large MLM company with countless products across the beauty and health industry. However, it’s the Arbonne skin care products that the brand is known for the most. Arbonne skin care products are available by collection or by skin concern with everything from anti-aging products, Arbonne products tailored for people with sensitive skin, and those with acne prone skin. Everyday Arbonne skin care products to cover your essential needs, as well as targeted Arbonne solutions to treat specific skin issues or concerns. While Arbonne has a number of anti-aging products within its sustainable beauty collection, the RE9 line is definitively the companies most popular and celebrated.

The Arbonne RE9 Advanced line consists of Arbonne core anti-aging products that promise to restore youth and vitality to the skin. As it name indicates, this Arbonne anti-aging collection utilizes nine key ingredients that help to transform the appearance of the skin within days of use. These Arbonne formulations are packed with ingredients like antioxidant vitamin C, algae extract, and many of the proprietary Arbonne blends. These ingredients allow the Arbonne RE9 Advanced products to support collagen production which helps improve the strength, firmness, and elasticity of the skin while working to diminish the signs of age like smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and evening the complexion.

Each of the products inside the Arbonne RE9 Advanced line consists of scientifically advanced formulations that have been clinically tested and packed with potent botanicals and extracts. These Arbonne products include your typical anti-aging products like a facial cleanser, toner, neck cream, eye creams, and moisturizers. This Arbonne line also includes a number of advanced anti-aging products like the Arbonne Cellular Renewal Mask, the Arbonne Intensive Renewal Serum, and the Arbonne Advanced Night Repair Cream. Arbonne has also added an element of health to the RE9 Advanced line with the addition of dietary Supplements which helps to combat age from the inside out.

Arbonne Ingredients

While sustainability plays a key role in Arbonne, a big aspect of that is ingredient sourcing. Arbonne prides itself on its meticulous ingredient curation process in which only the most high quality, natural ingredients are infused within the Arbonne products.

While the products sold by Arbonne contain a wide array of ingredients, some of the ingredients tend to show up over and over in this line.

Dimethicone – A commonly used silicone Also used in hair conditioners. Makes the product feel nice. No long term benefits. 

Cyclopentasiloxane – A silicone that enhances the texture of products. Used in skin and hair products. Makes products feel like silk when applied to the skin. No long term benefits. 

Polymethyl Methacrylate – It’s a plastic component used as a shatterproof replacement for glass. It gives products a cushiony feel.

Avoid products with high amounts of silicones. They merely make products feel nice and silky.

Arbonne Reviews

Overall, the Arbonne brand seems to be one that is pretty dependable for those looking for quality anti-aging skin care. When it comes to the Arbonne reviews, users tend to fall into two groups, those who feel indifferent and those who are genuinely impressed.

The Arbonne reviews from people who feel the Arbonne products perform average typically come from those with normal skin and don’t necessarily need to focus on anti-aging skincare. These Arbonne reviews note the products work well enough, is gentle on the skin, and do not cause breakouts or irritation. People in this same camp also share Arbonne reviews that comment they have not experienced any particularly significant improvements in the appearance of their skin so for them, the brand’s steep price tag.

In the other group, the Arbonne reviews tend to be more celebratory with users experiencing improvements in the appearance and feel of skin. These Arbonne reviews are typically from people with more mature skin or those who deal with some of the more common skin issues. Frequent Arbonne reviews note that the Arbonne products are great for sensitive skin, results are noticeable almost immediately, and there is a significant improvement in the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Other key Arbonne reviews applaud the brand for its dedication to sustainability and safe beauty products. There are many Arbonne reviews that appreciate the vegan, cruelty-free, and naturally based formulations that they can trust.

Reviews

  1. SK Davies

    DONT USE IT – Arbonne gave me and has given MANY MANY OTHERS a horrible allergic reaction – the skin around my eyes is puffy red and horribly swollen – the anti-aging RE9 advanced made me look older and feel terrible.

  2. Dee

    Are you getting paid to promote Advanced Dermatology? Even after all these positive comments, you keep suggesting AD… As mentioned above, there are unscrupulous people in any business. Just like some people to bash others. If it doesn’t work for you, go find something else! I used to use R&F for years until I came across Arbonne. I switched 4 years ago and wouldn’t use anything else.!! It has worked miracles on my family and it the BEST product out there as far as I’m concerned.

  3. John

    The only reason why I buy from Arbonne is for my workouts.

    They are amazing and healthy and it gave me great results.

    The only thing I don’t like from this company is ordering online.

  4. Elizabeth

    Arbonne is now using stem cells from oranges and their products continue to be AMAZING! Some Arbonne consultants don’t want to talk about all that they know about Arbonne because it is a lot to take in and understand. Consultants should have proper paperwork to educate you or be able to find it to answer your questions- I am sorry if anyone had a bad experience.

    • Michelle

      Hi Elizabeth I am going to an arbonne party to support a friend who is selling it. It’s quite pricey and what I would like to know is this: can you recommend 3 products that, in your opinion, are the essentials? In other words, I don’t want to waste money on an arbonne product that is average or comparable to something I could get somewhere else for cheaper. What are the 3 superstars in terms of anti-aging/moisturizing/ regenerating? Please exclude sun protection and cleansing products. Thanks!

  5. Wendy

    I recently became a consultant to help a friend that was starting her Arbonne business, I do not sell the products but only buy what I use mostly the nutrition line, I like the firming body cream and have tired the RE9 line, I do find the products to be very high in cost and even with the 35% discount its a lot of money and being on social security and a fixed income, it’s hard to choose which product to buy once a month…..also very hard to find samples of the product to try before you buy, I also sell Avon and have for 30 years, it’s a whole lot easier to get a samples from them then from Arbonne…..

  6. 34 female

    Just left a “spa party”. Consultant was poorly trained as she couldn’t answer any questions about product ingredients but instead kept saying to check the website. As a matter of fact, she didn’t seem to know much at all about the product even though she’s been a consultant for 5 years and only works 10-15 hours a week and drives a Mecades that the company provided to her. We should expect to be making $7,000 within 6 months to a year of starting as a consultant. 🙄 she did say that Arbonne bans 1,300 chemicals but could only specifically name ”mineral oil’. Of the products she put on us, 3 burned my skin and the rest did almost nothing at all. My entire face was cranberry red by the end of it but I only noticed after she finished when I saw myself in the mirror. My eyes still burn.

    • Jojo

      Whether they work or not it is very disappointing to find that the bottles are so partially filled that they fall over constantly from being top-heavy. I just hacked the serum bottle in two and there was not even an inch of serum in the top. That means their was over 4 inches of empty space in the bottle!

  7. Bales

    I agree… this line has saved my skin. Im 32 and have suffered my acne ever since I can remember (probably around 12). And this is the only skincare line that has not only gotten rid of my acne but my skin looks amazing. I have been using it for 4 weeks now… i will NEVER EVER buy another skincare line. E.V.E.R.

  8. Flavia Castro

    I see and feel so many advantages on be using the products of Arbonne. And as a business model also I find so smart. Very supportive of Network Marketing – That is the future, the system is so broke and wrong….

  9. Liz

    I’m shocked at some of bad reviews on here! I’ve been using Arbonne products for about 6 months now and am astound by the difference in my skin. Arbonne has not only helped me get rid of my acne but significantly reduce the acne scars and brown spots left over! You’re missing out on an amazing skin care line you believe these BS comments!!

    • Laurie

      Liz, which products have you been using to help the acne & scars? I’m ordering Arbonne for the 1st time & was planning on getting stuff from the anti-aging line. I’m hoping it’ll help my acne issues too.

    • Lisa

      I am 54 years old and have been using Arbonne for 8 years. I love the products. I get many compliments on my skin and have never had any issues with the products. I love the way my skin feels and looks. I have periodically tried other products just to compare, especially because skin changes as you age. But, always, always come back to and stay with Arbonne.

  10. Jessica

    I have been using Arbonne Clear Future for 6 weeks now. I have been seeing results but its taking longer than exspected for the redness and pimples to go and I’m on Youth allowance. So i can’t afford purchasing products everytime they run out. I’m 19 years old and im very insecure about my acne, however my skin feels amazing everyday as i use clear future.

    • Cindy Mendelzon

      Jessica, you should start selling Arbonne! Big discount for consultants and the younger you start, the more you’ll make as you get older! You already have the skincare line, the start of your own business!

  11. Anonymous

    I am an Arbonne consultant and have been for many years. I totally love the products, the only fault I have is with the so called support network and pure hatred of some people. I was attacked by my sponsor after asking for support, the attack was aimed at me personally/professionally, this left me feeling bullied, isolated and depressed. One of my consultants was also treated badly when she was told that if I gained support from others she would stop supporting/training her, that constitutes blackmail I believe. I desperately wanted to restart my business therefore I contacted Arbonne to ask if it would be possible to find another source of support from my up line, the response was not clear and my business has depleted.
    I thought Arbonne was all about support/kindness/paying good forward etc. In my case my sponser was a very bitter twisted nasty piece of work who will stomp on anyone to get where she wants to be. I really hope she finds what she deserves

    • JODI

      I am so sorry you had an awful experience with your upline. The Nation I belong to and the women who have now become like sisters has absolutely transformed my life. I hope you have found a way to continue to grow your business ❤

    • Jacquie

      I’m really sorry to read about your experience with your sponsor. The support I’ve received from my sponsor and everyone I’ve come in contact with has been nothing short of extraordinarily kind and helpful. I hope you are able to move forward from your experience and show your team what true Arbonne values are about. Dylan’s comment about being inactive for 12 months before beginning again is accurate. I truly hope you’ll begin again with a new sponsor and build your business like I know you can.

    • Ashley

      I believe you can sign up under another consultant but there are some stipulations to prevent any unethic behaviour from occurring (like poaching consultants). I can chat to you more about it if you would like to know more. My instagram is ashley47_

    • Fiona

      Hello Anonymous: I am sorry to see your review about your consultant experience. I am a consultant and my team is incredibly supportive – and our sidelines our supportive of each other too. I’ve only had good experience. Please get in touch with me and I will be happy to help you.

    • dylan

      I am so sorry to hear something like that with Arbonne. I am a proud consultant from Australia and I am sorry that this has happened not only to you but also to someone who you know. My experience here is one that is so very helpful and friendly no matter who the upline or sideline is. As best as my knowledge if you want to start with another up line you have to be in active for 12 months (dont quote me on that). I can only say that thankfully not every one is like your sponsor and I have only seen caring, helpful and happy people.

    • Katie

      Hello!

      I just became an Arbonne consultant; after first refusing to partake in a network marking style business. I simply couldn’t resist, being that my personal business aspirations alined so wholly with that of Arbonne, also because I fell head over heels for all of their products (and I mean ALL of their products)! If you feel the same about any of these things please reach out to me!! I am a graduating business student and I would love to help you replenish your business!!

      -Not a robot… or bully! 🙂

    • Stephanie

      Hi Anonymous, I’m truly shocked and sorry to hear that you had such a negative experience with your sponsor. I personally have had the complete opposite experience, unlimited love and support, our team is like our family and closest friends. When you start this business I believe it’s important to connect or meet some of the team members because you do spend a lot of time together and the connection has to be right. As all consultants are different so are leaders in this business, if you loved the business and products don’t let one person take that away from you X there are so many amazing people out there to guide and support you. Best wishes X

    • Kimmie Gonzalez

      Sorry to hear about your experience. I hope you found a new sponsor/support system. Every company has its bad apples and uts definitely an individual issue and not how Arbonne itself works! I kbow several awesome support systems..my team is anazing as well as our sideline nations. Hope you are still enjoying your products and your business. Look past the negative ppl and push through for what your WHY is!

      God Bless!

  12. Michele

    2 years ago I started using Arbonne, I have never used a product that made such a difference to my skin. I am 50 and I am told by younger people that my skin is beautiful and these comments have only come about in the last 2 years. I would not use anything else and the makeup is the only makeup I have continually warn every other day in my life. I would only wear makeup for a special event as I never liked the feel of it. I am giving 5 stars to Arbonne

    • Michelle

      Hi Michele I am going to an arbonne party to support a friend who is selling it. It’s quite pricey and what I would like to know is this: can you recommend 3 products that, in your opinion, are the essentials? In other words, I don’t want to waste money on an arbonne product that is average or comparable to something I could get somewhere else for cheaper. What are the 3 superstars in terms of anti-aging/moisturizing/ regenerating? Please exclude sun protection and cleansing products. Thanks!

  13. Helen

    Hello all,

    I can’t believe how terrible this is. I have spent all my life on good facial care and have good skin. Until I made the mistake of buying this rubbish.

    I have never experienced such terrible skin. I have even been to a dermatologist to get some help.

    The products are expensive for giving you bad skin.

    For the love of God people, DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH.

    Hope I can help innocent people out there before they fall into the trap the consultants lay before you. Oh and also, if you try and tell them you don’t like it, there will be another range to waste your money on.

    These consultants are just after the white Merc they get a bonus towards…….I would never con people for a car, I just work harder and buy cars from honest living, not by taking money from people and leaving them with bad skin.

    • Simone

      There is a 6 week full money back guarantee, even if you have used most of the product. You should have done that if you are not happy. Like everything, there are bad people representing good companies. Sorry you came across one. Be mindful that not all products suit every person. I had a bad case with Shiseido and they wouldn’t except that i was sold the wrong product for my skin, hence no refund. Lessons learned.

    • Molly

      Arbonne products are amazing, my skin is beautiful.
      Helen I think you have a big problem with your skin and arbonne products was not for you at this present time, but you don’t have to slag the products off the way you did just because it didn’t work for you, !!! Maybe you didn’t get the right products. Hope you get the help at the hospital.🤑

      Hi!

      Friendly outreach coming,

      I just signed up to be an Arbonne consultant and I’m pretty sure I love their products; but because I like to think i’m not a fool, I definitely want to hear from people just like yourself ma’am. Would you possibly be willing to elaborate a little more on your experience with Arbonne and the products you used?

      I would greatly appreciate any input you have on the company or its products, at your convenience 🙂

      Kindly,

      KD

      My two cents! I actually enjoy my arbonne skincare. They are NOT crappy products, and because they are botanically based, inevitably some people’s skin will not agree with the products. Not everyone involved in a MLM is out to rip people off and shove skin care down people’s throats, just so they can make commission and drive a white Benz. I used to be with Mary Kay, but then got too busy with my other career and it fizzled out. Arbonne has way better formulas in my opinion. I have a few friends and a sister in Arbonne, who are doing quite well. It’s not because they are out to mess with people, it is because for the most part, the skin care works well, and the makeup, body products, etc, contain less harmful ingredients and are effective. I found the calm line really amazing on my skin, and I tried the re9. It was really quite nice however a little too pricey for me. If I had more money I would likely stay on the re9 line. The mineral foundation is awesome, and the bath and body products, particularly the fc5 shower gel and moisturizer, is affordable, smells delicious, and goes a long way. I love the genius pads (they have aha in them) and when I use these nightly I have less breakouts and clearer skin. That product really is amazing. Try it out, honestly it is so great. All in all, Arbonne sells quality skincare and makeup, and it is definitely worth a try. I’m sure you will fall in love with the smell and results of quite a few things they offer. They have a good return policy also, as all reputable companies do. I suppose there is a reason my sister has moved up so high in the company and now drives a Benz! The products really do speak for themselves. May as well try them out and see if they work for you. It is an ethical company with many quality skin care options, depending on your needs. Give it a try!

    • Can't believe what I am reading......

      I absolutely love the products. My sister is a consultant and I buy all of my products as well as my families products from her. Maybe you had a bad experience and thats unfortunate. All I can say is that I have heard the business opportunity and no way in hell are the consultants only out to get your money and the car. No one is trying to trick anyone. It is a network marketing company, and if you knew anything about business and what is going on in the world today, MLM is the business of the 21st century. I choose to use a healthier product and sorry but those Arbonne consultants who are apparently deceiving people work harder than anyone I know. They are just working smarter. This company helps so many people around the world. My sister goes to 3rd world countries and helps children, families and builds schools and homes for them. And she is able to do this because of Arbonne. So next time you decided to shit on something, get your facts straight! Thank god your not a consultant, cause they don’t have room for people like you.

      • Kristin S.

        Agreed! Who’s to say they weren’t paid by advanced dermatology to say those things. This site discloses that they are not facts and they openly give lower ratings to Arbonne to out-sell them! People need to read the bold lettering at the bottom of this SITE~@

    • Amanda

      Arbonne Consultants aren’t all out for the White merc!!! Some are just wanting that little extra $$$ and to help people who may not understand this sort of thing. Just because Arbonne didn’t work for you doesn’t mean it’s a terrible product or harmful etc. it just means it didn’t work for YOU!! Please remember that and while having our own opinion is fine remember not everyone is in it for reasons you may think

    • Editor

      We don’t endorse multi level marketing brands. Sorry.

      Instead, take a look at our top recommendations. You can purchase their products online and they usually ship within a few days.

      Please take a look at Advanced Dermatology. Purchase the product directly from their website. They offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

  14. Ann

    I tired arbonne RE9 tester for two weeks on my face and my face felt great. I found it alittle heavy so i bought the calm line. The first night i used it my dryness went away. Then in the morning i used it and thought i could see a white patch under my eye but decided to use it before i went to bed. But when i woke up i had huge white patches under my eye. Very strange. So to give me moisture i just made my own scrub with olive oil brown sugar and coconut oil. It makes it so soft but alittle oily. Ahh skin care products are so frustrating with sensitive skin. Oh well but i hope my reversed black eye goes back to normal. 🙁

  15. Janice

    I went to an Arbonne party and the person doing it cut off friendship with me because I told her outright I didn’t want to buy any products and I also was the only one there who had heard of Arbonne and I described it as a “selling-driven company based on recruitment”. This person now spams Facebook all the time with these crazy Arbonne posts. She is openly derogatory of people who go to work to make a living, saying we are working for “the man” and are not seeing our family enough. Now when I encounter a new Arbonne person, I notice they all use EXACTLY the same language, speak exactly the same. The whole point of Arbonne is that to sell you have to have cult like faith in the products (which are not much better than others, and use vague terms like “botanically based” and pseudoscience like “detoxing” and “PH balancing” to describe their supplements) and then only befriend you to sell the blasted product. I find this so lacking in genuineness!

    • Mikalea

      Janice a good friend of mine has done the same thing to us. Weird and a bizarre approach to business. Since becoming a consultant with Arbonne she has become so fake. Many of them do speak the same and seem to become robots selling the products. So sad.

  16. Jennifer

    I have used Arbonne products for several years. I have pretty much loved everything I’ve tried. My hands would crack and bleed every winter. Nothing I tried, not even dermatologist recommended, worked until I tried the Body Moisture and Hand Creams from Arbonne. I can’t even believe that my winter skin is gone. I’ve also had many sensitivities to different make-up brands – even expensive ones, but I love the way my face looks and feels with my Arbonne Mineral Powder and RE9 face line. I love the products so much that I signed up to be a consultant – really only for the discount. I have no intention of building this as a business but I know a fantastic woman who is getting ready to quit her job and do Arbonne full time. She works hard, is a great salesperson, and her customer service support is fantastic. I wish this site was only evaluating people’s experiences with the product and not as a consultant because I believe these products are the best for my skin.

  17. Sara

    I am utterly astounded by some of the comments on here in which individuals pick on other individuals just trying to make a living, Its rude, ignorant and quite frankly abhorrent human behaviour. I came on this site looking at reviews and then reading the comments below found a torrent of a abuse about all manor of things. Independent Consultants in Multilevel marketing are usually ordinary people trying to make a little extra cash or substitute their often strugglingly small incomes and 9-5 existences for something that allows them to be flexible and give them ownership over their own lives. The idea the people without extensive education etc can’t make a living is the exact kind of elitist attitude that created the current poor economy.

    As far as I can see Arbonne products work really well for some, less for others but at the end of the day they aren’t making any bold claims and as well as the products the company offers the opportunity to start a lifestyle business, which by the way isn’t a get rich quick scheme but an actual business, which you can chose to do or not but like any job or business, takes time and energy. At the end of the day we can all say people told us to do this or that but this is skincare, we all have to be responsible for the decisions we make, and if there are dodgy consultants out there (which no doubt there are) the company should be informed.

    Personally when I have used Arbonne I have found some lines great and others not so great, I don’t find it overpriced because I value what I put on my skin as it is the biggest organ on the human body and I believe you should take care of it, even on my small income. I have found the products to last a lot longer compared to other cheaper brands and when I first heard of Arbonne, I was given the opportunity to do a home trial for a few days before I bought anything. The consultant who told me about it is a trusted friend of mine so I had no problems hearing what she had to say and there are also a lot of men in her business, so the idea that Arbonne preys on females is I think a sweeping generalisation. It is important to note that no one should feel pressured into anything and if you feel a person is hassling you, then make sure you make your own decision. This doesn’t necessarily mean the company or products are bad, just the approach of that individual. Always do the right research when it comes to products and get educated. I wish you all the best.

    • Rebecca

      Sara, thank you for your very well informative comment. I’m at the beginning stages of exploring the opportunity and trying to make a decision. As you said it works great for some; for me a couple of days with trial was not enough to see real results from my total engagement but I do believe it is s high quality product. I was surprised & disturbed disturbed with the 60% rating.
      Unfortunately for me I may not have the right rep to engage me (too pushy). Wish I could find another partner.

  18. Sue Harvey

    I would like to specifically know which GMO products are in the Arbonne lines of products. The GMO stuff is something I am only beginning to research and its confusing. Can someone please be specific when they say these products contain GMO items. Thank you!

    Sue

    • Amber Roper

      Hi Sue,

      in the interests of transparency I will say from the start that I am proud to be an Arbonne independent consultant …

      I am more than happy to answer these questions for you (and any other questions you and others may have)

      Arbonne do not have any independents that are GMO sourced, it is all part of them being naturally derived … please note that Arbonne do not claim to store natural products – we all know that popping some mud from a lake (natural product) is not always a good thing ! They do however strive to take the best from nature and the best of science to product a botanically based product line.

      I can send you more information on the ingredient policy and (as part of my role) offer you advice as to which products should work best for you – should you choose to try them. I don’t do high pressure sales or keep messaging you to buy – I don’t like it being done to me, so I don’t do it to others.

      As with everything – some people will not like the products, others will. Thankfully as a company we also offer your money back if you are part of the 1st group.

  19. Kate

    Ok so I don’t usually post reviews and am usually critical of many products that charge so much. My mum (what I believed) got suckered in to arbonne just like she did enjo, and all the other natural, independent, at home sales business….

    Now, I am 29 years old and have always suffered with breakouts and blackheads, usually relating to my menstrual cycle (I’d get big blind pimples). For the past three months I had been getting, not my usual one zit, but 2-3-4 of them and I had had enough!

    Mum gave me her cleanser, toner and re-surfacing pads (she got over the fad), as I thought I’d try something “natural” (I had been using st ives apricot scrub for over a year and seemed to be working well until recently).

    I was hesitant about the re-surfacing pads as I already had oily skin and they seemed to be oil based product that you wipe our face with before bed (never a good thing for breakouts).. and the cleanser was smooth, no “scrub bits” which I thought needed due to blackheads and patches of dry skin…

    WELL!!! I am pleasantly surprised! I don’t wake up with zits, my monthly blind pimples hardly exist and I have hardly any blackheads! So I wil keep using it, pretty good for something that was a last resort.

    • Editor

      We’re sorry to see you didn’t see any results. Please take a look at Advanced Dermatology. It is our #1 recommendation on the site. Read the review but don’t expect fancy packaging or pleasant fragrances. These are dermatological skin care products. Not luxury products.

      I had the same thing happen to me, mom gave me RE9 and resurfacing pads and overnight my dark circles from 4 kids were gone, just gone….my skin had colour and I continue to look amazing. I was using higher end products like Yonka, Collins and Clinque and NOTHING has ever made me look this good! 40 and life long Arbonne Client!

      Your blind pimples are likely a result of what is known as cystic or hormonal acne, and the fact that they are more prevalent during your menstrual cycle makes sense. Oily skin is not reflective of hydration but rather a reaction to a lack of it. When your skin is dry, the body produces sebum to hydrate it. It’s that sebum that’s the enemy. So, if you keep your skin well hydrated you’ll shut down that sebum production and that’s why your product is working. Also, I don’t think it’s fair to say your mom got “suckered” into Arbonne. Network Marketing is on the rise and is the new Professional Age. It will only continue to grow as people look for jobs because there is so much unemployment, as students graduate with no jobs to go to, and as people look for more freedom and opportunity. Being an entrepreneur costs a lot of money, so Network Marketing or Direct Sales companies offer a job with income and potential freedom without the huge investment. Network Marketing works, but people don’t. If you don’t work that business you won’t reap any of the rewards. You must work your business and grow it like any other business out there, but most give up because they joined for the wrong reasons. It’s not quick money or a get rich quick scheme, you have to work and work hard in the beginning so you work less in the end. In addition, we as humans buy things based on emotion and then justify with logic. Often when that emotion subsides and the reality of what we have purchased sets in, we become disillusioned with our purchase and displeasure sets in. So, your mom didn’t get suckered into Arbonne. She joined based on what she was feeling at the time and then later became disillusioned. Network Marketers don’t “sucker” people into things (unless of course they are overselling their business). They are sharing their business and looking for business partners and if your mom or anyone else joins because they are feeding off the excitement or enthusiasm of the consultant that is neither the consultant’s nor new business partner’s (like your mom) fault. We all buy products, visit places, buy clothes, go to restaurants based on the recommendations and enthusiasm of others. We do it everyday. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t and Network Marketing is no different.

    I’m with the person who called this a pyramid scheme.
    And I don’t really care if you disagree with me. Before I even tried the product it was suggested that the business would be good for me.
    The Arbonne party I attended was 80% about becoming a consultant and 20% about the actual product!
    Unfortunately I actually liked the product. I say unfortunately, because there is so much about the way this stuff is sold that rubs me the wrong way.

    • Rae

      I am an Arbonne consultant and accidentally sold one product in about 5 years :). In fact I lost the commission check. I say this to say not all consultants are pushy and only in it for the money. I am only a consultant to get the 30% discount, since I use the make up and RE-9 cleanser line. The first person I met affiliated with Arbonne was also not pushy. She is my consultant. I am sure there are some pushy ones out there, though. If you like it, just become a consultant for yourself!

    • Kanissa

      It’s unfortunate that you were exposed to Arbonne in that way. It stems from the philosophy of leading with the business because the business is the best product. Unfortunately, while this approach motivates some it turns off others. You are right. It should not be about the business opportunity. Network Marketing is supposed to be about building relationships and being genuine, honest, and transparent. You have to truly care about people to be in this business. All I can say is that if you like the product, align yourself with another consultant who does not lead with the business and who is interested in building a relationship based on trust and transparency.

    I have been using Arbonne for a little while now and absolutely love it. While everyone’s skin is different and may react differently to different fruits and extracts it is by far the best that I have tried. I have eczema on my eyelids — yes my eyelids and cannot put steroid cream on my eyes. Everything I used and tried would make it flare up and become really super itchy. When I tried the Arbonne RE9 line, I was pleasantly surprised that to see the itch was subsiding but I couldn’t understand why it was going away. My mother finally suggested to get rid of my old pharmacy/Walmart make up and try Arbonne makeup… She said you can’t just do half of it you have to do all of it. Well she was right, since changing all my face products and using only Arbonne, I no longer have any eczema. NOW, I’m not saying this would work for everyone however it did work for me. The products are all amazing and wonderful!

    The one thing that I wanted to mention on this is that this is supposed to be a review on the products on your skin and not the business. Many people join Arbonne and realize that it is lots of work and when it doesn’t work out they bash the company. Because this site is supposed to be a review of the products and not the company therfore, in my opinion, makes the Arbonne rating here not an effective rating system. It should be on the products for your skin… hence the name Derm Reviews!!!! If you want to post business reviews you should be finding another site.

    I give Arbonne 5 Stars because THEIR PRODUCTS are simply amazing!!!!

    I took my doggie to the vet. I am now using a serum in between the should blades of my dog to fight: Pin worms/Heart worms and Fleas – If this can be absorbed by my dogs skin to kill intestinal worms then its time to make a change as to what products I put on my body. Therefore, I have atttended an Arbonne party and I have decided to become a Consultant. I am really fed up with the GMO’s and all the bad things we do – Then we wonder why so many Americans are getting Cancer? Hello – Really? We cannot continue to put chemicals on our bodies – even in deodorants – I’m excited about offering Arbonne – I been using the products myself as I feel like you cannot sell something that you do not believe in! I’m Excited! More people need to use products suck as Arbonne!

      I also read Megan Teplan’s blog, and I discovered that the brand, Arbonne, doesn’t actually claim to never use GMOs; if fact, the brand does use GMOs and isn’t as natural as they’d like you to think.

      • GMO and GLUTEN FREE is TRUE!!!

        Arbonne is 100% Gluten Free and GMO non detect!! That is higher than almost any brand on the market!! That lady that gave that awful review was discredited because her facts where actually false. We are not here to convince you, that is not what I do for a living. However, bashing our brand when the claim of us being false is unfounded. I started out as a skeptic buying some products. I became a consultant only for the discount for the nutritional products. Then after using many “high end” products my skin started to freak out. Here I had samples of the Re9 anti aging sitting in a box for over a month before I was told by a good friend to try them. WIthin THREE DAYS my skin not only looked much better, but felt better as well. Don’t knock it until you try and truly compare it with a product(s) of the same high end quality. The only thing you may regret is not ordering it sooner.

      Dear Anonymous

      I was suckered into buying it by my FORMER hairdresser. Way too expensive also didn’t work. I was told high cost was for quality of the product but that is blatantly false- the cost is to cover commissions for all the folks upline and product has GMOS in it per blog I read online -Megan Teplan’s blog. How can anyone in good conscience take money like this from anyone especially friends. My “consultant” (what a joke that title is- anyone with no formal qualifications or training does it – very sleezy. Why not just be honest and tell people you want them to give you money for doing nothing-at least that would be honest- how can you sleep at night!

    • TwistBarbie

      You can’t continue to put chemicals in your body? You do realize every single thing you consume is a chemical, right? I’m not going to go into the rest of the silly things you said but I will state that I’ve bought several Arbonne products to grudgingly help a friend who sells it and aside from the brushes the products were either terrible or equal to a product I could buy for 1/4 of the price. I don’t care how “pure” or “natural” a product is, if it can’t perform it’s not worth my money.

    • Nate

      I am interested in knowing if Arbonne makes any claims to not using GMO’s in their products. So far I’ve not had any luck in finding out anything. Could you tell me where to find this information? Thanks!

      • Janine

        There’s absolutely zero wrong with GMOs. It’s been inculcated into people that they are harmful & that is a complete falsehood. Even our overly cautious government has conducted study after study and found the procedure very beneficial. Basically, plants and fruits and vegetables that had weaknesses that caused them to die of disease or infestation scientists were able to get rid of. Many GMO fruits & veggies need less pesticides because they are stronger and more resistant. Crops grow stronger and higher yields allow more people to be fed. My son attended a conference filled with gov’t officials who all acknowledged that the anti-GMO hucksters have completely and ingenuously vilified a Godsend scientific advancement. It”s like villfying scientists who invent procedures to genetically remove cancer-susceptible cells from the human body. Are those genetically modified people better off or worse off as a whole? More healthy or less healthy?

        Hi Nate! Arbonne actually regularly audits their raw ingredient sourcing to ensure they are GMO free! They are currently pursuing I would be happy to provide you with more information. 🙂 just let me know

    I’ve been a loyal customer for 4 years, love their products! I am not a fan of the acne (pimple) care line as 4 years ago my sister bought it and it made her break out more! We sent it back and decided to get her the FC5 line which has worked wonderful for her! Myself and my recently passed mom have been RE9 users and love it! Firming cream that makes cellulite dissapear?! Yes! I love the company and recently (after four years) went to my sisters Mercedes car presentation! Every women that was receiving one had a masters degree and now make more money with Arbonne than in their teaching professions. I own two businesses which is why I never thought of using it as an income just bought the products (and was never pressured to buy them ever lol) as of June I’ll be conslutant, getting to share what I already was sharing with people!

    Guys, this is a pyramid scheme. If you are a consultant, shame on you for trying to make money off of your friends and family this way. It is only a matter of time before the company collapses, and their employees are left with the debt.
    Also, unlike what a consultant said about the ingredients of the products, they are incredibly hard- near impossible – to find.

    • Angela

      36 Years and going strong, they blow all others out of the market with the quality and the way it works! nothing Ive paid much more money on has ever worked this good, I love arbonne and only wish I had known about it earlier and put it on my four kids as babies instead of the toxic stuff they sell at shoppers and Walmart…shame on those big corporations for stealing our money through fake marketing and poisioning us, Arbonne reps give amazing customer service and Care about our health and wellbeing because they are friends and family!!! I trust them and would help make them successful over some CEO somewhere whos products are literally garbage ON OUR LARGEST ORGAN.

    • LAC

      Lol! 36 years in business-I’d say that’s a fairly stein company. Look up the definition of Pyramid schemes. Those are illegal.

      Business run by brick and mortar old school styles are just not the way to go anymore. I reviewed the company and used the products.

      Loved the products, but more than that, I was pleasantly surprised by the high integrity of the company.

    • Bobbi

      LOL! You are very uneducated about network marketing, Erin. The company is 36 years old, probably older than you. With it’s extreme growth and global expansion, I don’t see a collapse. A pyramid scheme is probably what you do – work for someone with no chance at getting to the top position. With Arbonne, we can grow as little or big as we want. Ingredients are SO simple to find. Listed on every item’s box and detailed list online as well.

    • CJ

      Hi Erin, and just an fyi to the other response… the Network Marketing Industry has created more millionaires than any other industry in the world – some of the richest men in the world own them and know their value… It’s simply a different business model – cutting out all the expensive middle-men (advertising, marketing, distribution, etc.) and providing some of that to independent brand representatives who share about the products. The rest of the money they save, they are able to invest more in research and development – to create a better product for the money.

    • Laura

      This is NOT a pyramid scheme, It is Multilevel Marketing. A pyramid scheme asks for money but does not actually offer products and is illegal. Consultants get commission on what they sell and a portion of those above them. And you can make money on just selling and not recruiting, you just make more if you recruit others. Your comment is ignorant. Educate yourself before making such comments.

    • laura

      To Erin and others who bash Network Marketing. They are NOT pyramid schemes. Pyramids are illegal. Network marketing only takes out the middle-man. The store front. The commercials/advertising. Arbonne consultants recommend products. And if someone needs more information, most are more than willing to find it for their customers. They are service-minded and caring. Not trying to get rich off friends, etc. Arbonne consultants are offered more training with their website and conferences and meetings than the lady at the clinique counter or a walmart aisle. Arbonne consultants do NOT carry an inventory. There is no huge investment. Arbonne has been around for 35 years. I don’t think it’s going to collapse. And on Arbonne’s website you find each product’s ingredient. There is an ingredient policy right on the site. Negativity breeds misery. My Arbonne friends are the most joyful, kind, positive people I’ve ever met.

    • Normi

      Erin, I would advice you to research what is a PYRAMID scheme to have an understanding about it. A pyramid scheme only the very top makes the money. They make money by collecting membership fee from the recruits, but do not offer products or services. A Pyramid scheme anyway is illegal in several countries including USA. If a company like Arbonne, Avon, MaryKay and others that recruits independent sales representative to bring products to target users are in pyramid scheme, they would have been in jail along with the company’s owner’s and CEO’s. What Arbonne, Avon, MaryKay and others are doing is called Networking or Direct Selling.

      Erin this is an extremely ignorant comment Arbonne isnot a pyramid scheme it is a MLM Company (look up the difference) if im a hairdresser, builder, or shop owner should I not sell tofriends or family? What evidence is there this company will collapse or the consultants will be left with debt??? these comments are unfounded and every single product and its ingredients plus source are on their webpage.I would love to know your agender?

      Not true! “Pyramid Schemes” by law are illegal and the U.S. Government if it really was an issue, wouldv’e shut the supposed scheme down a long time ago.

      Multi level marketing is already something you do everyday. You refer people everyday to restaurants, to your favorite store and favorite products and don’t get paid for your referral. Uber rewards drivers for referring other drivers, IIN rewards its ambassadors for bringing on new people to the school, Arbonne rewards you for your referrals every time they buy. No difference.

      Here’s another scenario. The new apple watch that just came out I am sure is being promoted by those who bought the watch, b/c they want to show it off. With that being said they are going to “ENROLL” their friends into spending the money to get that watch just by showing off its features and Apple is going to pay them not a cent for that business.

      MLM reps get paid from their referrals. As they should. If it wasnt for me my friend or family member wouldn’t be buying that companies stuff to begin with.

      We also are offering a much better deal than say a Target or a Macys. When you go to Target and spend 18 dollars for detergent you are paying for all the middle men to produce that bottle of detergent and that’s why it’s so expensive. When you shop from someone who has a MLM you buy products at wholesale and you save. Very simple.

      Marketing companies and production agencies have a smiliar set up. For example a corporation may come to an agency to produce an event. The agency has access to talent as well through another agency and will charge a percentage to the corporation for using the talent agency through them. Each time a corporation hires an agency the agency is charging the corporation for utilizing their resources. Thus they ALWAYS get paid additional or a “Residual” for utilizing their services. Even in their contracts it says you can’t hire any of our resources for up to 1-2 after the contract ends with said agency or corporation.

      All companies do this format in some way. As a MLM rep everyone is responsible for their own success. Many aren’t successful because the either a) haven’t done their research and or b) haven’t found a good enough why that moves, touches and inspires people to want to buy from them.

    Ok I just signed up as a Arbonne Consultant in Feb. 2015. I have been NAGGED by the uplines. They want you so involved with everthing, meetings calls etc. They do their promotions every quarter, so in March…Im still the new girl, my upline signs in as me and orders something with my name on it but a different address. I sent her an email about it and she said she had done it to get her promotion. At the time I didn’t care because I didn’t pay for it. Then today I get an email saying my request was approved to send the item back, I never requested that either. So its a NO Brainer, my upline has signed in under my name, order things to get her promotion and then sends the product back because she didn’t need the product she needed the MONEY to help her get promoted. I like the products, I think they are too expensive but I like the product, However the Business part is Bull Shit. These ladies are in it for themselves and how they can make their promotion, they will even hack your account to do so. You can order off Amazon or Ebay and still get it cheaper than what I can get it at my discount!

    • Rebecca

      Thank you very much for your comment. It is this information that draws on the ugly reality of “network marketing”.

      I had an Arbonne VP invite me twice out for coffee. I was able to see through the feigned caring nature to the pushy agenda she intended when I declined on a drinks night which would have been all the hideous Consultants glaring off each other. No thanks.

      I have a family member who is a Consultant who will beg my husband to buy the RE9 set as I politely declined on buying after trialling all 6 or so samples, just to “get her over the line”.
      So desperate to cut a sale that they don’t even realise they are crossing over the line! (Husband later says he just did to get her off his back and said the products were rubbish on his skin).

      I will never endorse Arbonne. As a make-up artist and skincare nut, it is all word of mouth……the quality of products and what works. You don’t need 3-7 steps to achieve good skin. All you need is a quality Moisturiser and Sunscreen worn daily and a strict regime of removing make-up and debris off your face at night. It’s water hydration, eating well and sleeping during the “golden hours 10pm – 2am” that gives you youthful glowing skin.

      Sorry about your experience but it is unfair to generalise on this one awful woman. I am a consultant and this certainly hasn’t happened to me or anyone I know. Even if you agree no longer with Arbonne, PLEASE tell them about this as it is against the policies and is cheating the system!! Stop it happening to someone else!

      came on the net to find Clinical study research on Arbornne and can not find it. I can find pictures but no real evidence. Think that just answered my own question. Have a great day

      If you don’t want to be involved then you should have not signed up. Arbonne is a business. If you want to make money, you have to understand the business, learn how to speak about it and attend. It’s the same with any other job.

      • Anonymous

        I agree as well.. If you didn’t want to be part of the business aspect, then why join. And honestly I have been with Arbonne for 3 years and NEVER ONCE had any of my uplines do something like that. To each is own and something like that could happen to ANY business!!

    • Katrina

      Yep, the consultant that signed me on did some shady stuff, too. I told her I didn’t want to build a team, just sell for a bit of commission on the side, and they way she told me to place the order didn’t seem right. The way she told me to sell and charge everyone in the state the highest tax rate means she gets a free dollar here and there, it is totally manipulating the system. She had me place my first order for my first party (which I sold $1000 worth of product) as a consultant order, which means I get no commission and it benefits HER because she is my direct upline and placing an order as a consultant records as her sale. I was so upset. And all I get is the “remember your why!” which is ridiculous. I’ve owned my own business for 15 years and wanted this as a side gig and it is obvious that the company just lets rouge consultants do whatever they want. I love the product, and think if you find a good upline, the business is great. But when consultants are preying on those signed up below them, there is no accountability. It isn’t a pyramid scheme, but if your upline is shady, then it can be a total rip off.

    • Stephanie

      Hi Amanda,
      I am also an Independent Consultant and I’m sorry you have had a negative experience with your upline, not all teams and uplines are like that. I happen to have an amazing upline and team who are super supportive and would never attempt such a thing. I also believe once they return items it effects their commission and QV and promotions so it wouldn’t make sense to go through all that trouble as an upline. In terms of ‘nagging’ you, that is unfortunate also, when it comes to meetings, events, call etc those are up to you to attended, it is your choice and they shouldn’t be ‘nagging’ at you. It’s your business not theirs that is effected if you show or not, they should just be there to support you and guide you. Also the issue with Amazon and Ebay is their is no guarantee to the quality and authenticity to the products there is no way to indicate if they are Arbonne products or just anything put into and Arbonne container as oppose to receiving it right from Arbonne.
      Hope you choose to stay with Arbonne!

    I have used Arbonne and I liked what it did for my skin. I love the cleanser. It took all of my makeup off including mascara. What I don’t like is customer service and they could lower their prices or give more breaks with package deals. If you spend so much you get a discount for your next order but only if you spend $150! If your going to give me a break give me one! My daughter, because of their web sight, got jipped out of a product she was to get free because “she ordered it wrong”. They wanted her to mail back all the products she ordered and was using, paying for packing and shipping herself, then they will resend it all back out to her along with the free product. Of course now she doesn’t have her product to use while all this is going on. She went through several people with the same outcome. Well she told them to keep their free product and they also lost a customer and so did the consultant! When they saw she did what she was suppose to do for the free product why couldn’t they just drop it in the mail and make a customer happy! They also don’t have good training for new consultants. I’m on the edge of weather I want to continue to purchase products from a company that cares more about $$$ than people regardless of how good it is. We need to get back to good customer service people!

      You receive 20 percent off as a prefferred client. If you spend 150 you get 10.00 off. So you get a discount plus the 10.00 off. Department stores don’t do this so it’s pretty good. If you look at the prices with the discount, they’re cheaper than a lot of the big brands. If you need help go to the person who signed you up and they will process the order for you.

        I just became a preferred client today and ordered my first products from arbonne (trying arbonne products for the first time) and I mentioned to my consultant that I wanted the total price to be around $175 with taxes, fees, and the preferred client cost and she said it was do-able since my total product cost was going to be $150 and the preferred client cost is $20. When we actually put the order in and she told me the total it was $200 and the sales tax was $15+ and the shipping was $5, and unless Arizona’s state tax changed to 10% and I never heard about it, then I was charged the wrong tax. The consultant acted weird when i brought it up to her and now im reading reviews and comments about consultants charging the highest sales tax to make money off clients…. Is this true? How do I dispute this? I know its only a couple dollars but its almost double what I should be charged for my sales tax.

    • Shannon

      Pat,
      I am sorry that happened! I know exactly how frustrating that can be. I am a fairly new consultant and know that Arbonne is or has been going through some website changes and it has been a headache. For consultants and clients alike. I think things are finally getting settled. So I hope you will continue to use your product. I would hate for you to have to stop using something that works. Also maybe have a little discussion with your consultant. Just let her know your dissatisfaction. We are here for you and ultimately you are her priority or should be. I know that I also had issues in the beginning due to the site headaches and they charged my card but for some reason my order wouldn’t show so they wanted to re charge me. Since I saw the amount on my bank account my consultant (now my sponsor) did not want me to be billed 2x. So she used her credit card. Then when the original charge dropped off my account I wrote her a check to reimburse her. So I felt very taken care of. That is the kind of thing I think we should be doing for our customers. So Pat, I am sorry this happened and you and your daughter were displeased and felt neglected. But give it another chance. 🙂

    Received sample line of the anti-aging from a friend. Loved how the products made my skin feel – initially. However, after several days of use noticed a rash which became markedly worse over the next three days – masses of tiny itchy pimples, some with pus heads. I have NEVER had acne not even as a teen. I am in my fifties. I react that way to some sunscreens. Even though these products don’t contain PABA or petrolatum there is something in probably the moisturizer that causes this on my skin which admittedly is sensitive. Sadly had to discontinue after a week and a half of use. I work in a professional office and cannot present an appearance of “old lady with pimples”, sorry!

      These products are so full of chemicals ! They use Palm oil, Polysorbate 20 and Butylene Glycol. I feel totally ripped off and have been mislead completely. The CC cream looks good for an hour then totally slips off the face, yes, I even used their powder and primer. I looked 10 years older. I’ve also broken out from the RE9 which I’ve been using now for nearly a month. Be warned, these are very far from natural and pure.

      • Reply to anonymous

        Dear Anon. My cousin introduced me to the Arbonne products over a year ago. As I don’t get involved with many companies, I was hesitant to sign on with Arbonne. However, I have had problem skin my entire life. As a youth I had extreme acne which left some scarring. I also have large pores which made it very easy to get blackheads. This was a constant struggle for me. However, after using my cousin’s products for two weeks straight, I noticed such a change in my skin that I also bought some of the skin care and began using her CC cream. I must say what you described above is not my experience at all. The CC cream when applied properly and on clean skin and over Oil Absorbing Day Lotion does not “slide off the face” as you described at all. I recommend you contact whoever introduced you to the products and find out what you are doing wrong.

      • Tam

        Arbonne has never claimed to be natural, and natural isn’t always good. Poop is natural. Also, you’re entire body is made up of chemicals. Everything you eat and drink is made up of chemicals. Chemicals aren’t all bad. They use chemicals approved by the EU only. The EU has a list of 30 something banned chemicals vs. the US which had about 9. That’s way better than most stuff you’d find on the shelf. Plus they’re vegan certified, have never tested on animals, are gmo free, and are carbon neutral. I don’t know why so many people bash the company. The product may not work for everyone, but just because they cut out all the middle men by going the network marketing route doesn’t mean they’re evil. They’re actually trying to do good for the environment. Don’t let a bad rep ruin the product for you.

      I had a similar reaction, but it’s totally normal. I stopped using the products for a day or two and my red inflamed skin went away. I really trusted what my Arbonne Consultant said about how sometimes the skin can do through a detox period and wanted to give the RE9 products a second try because they really are pure, safe, and beneficial. I started out again by only using the cleanser and the night cream at night and day cream during the day, and then gradually added the toner, serum, eye cream. My results have been amazing. No breakouts, fine lines are disappearing and thank god I’m no longer using the dangerous chemical filled products I used to use. I’ve even added the Arbonne Intelligence Genius, which is a Retinoid and it’s helping so much with discoloration, dark spots, and lines.

        you can so tell you’re a consultant, you’re using all the key words and phrases…just be honest. Some people don’t react well to the products…skin detox is a greenwashing phrase…and even if your skin DOES detox, the result wouldn’t be what Sarah experienced.

        • Anonymous

          Actually that describes my reaction as well, and I’m not a consultant. I love Arbonne, but as much as I love it, I won’t be buying anymore because it’s simply too expensive

    I started using Arbonne two years ago because I was suffering from adult acne. One of my daugters also had acne and sensitive and the other daughter has always had eczema. Within a few weeks of using the products, all of our faces have cleared up and my daughters eczema is totally gone. My face is smoother, more even toned and even black circles under my eyes have been reduced. From using the shower gels, my skin is more moisturized, less dry and has even got rid of any cellulite that I had.
    I will be a consultant for life.!! I would never go back to the old products. I absolutely LOVE these products.!!! And I beg to differ that that are expensive. With our discount, money back and the length of time they last due to being so pure, they actually work out cheaper then the products I was buying before.

  29. Lauren G

    I have been using Arbonne products mow for quite some time. Love them and the way they feel. Sunscreen is great. I can also give people information about the products if you need assistance.

    I for one have been using the Arbonne RE 9 Anti Aging skincare line for a year now and I have to say, this is one of the best products out there. it cleared up my uneven skin tone, made my skin feel silky smooth and yup.. I believe it’s taken a couple of years off my age.. this product is wonderful. I believed in this product so much, I decided to become an Independent Consultant for Arbonne and I’m not looking back. To those who didn’t like it, everyone is different. Everyone’s skin is different. But I’ve used all the products on my face (I read the directions!)… and it’s never felt or looked better! Thank you! 🙂

  31. Cheryl

    I spent way too much money on Arbonne products and never saw results. Tried the baby line on my daughter and she broke out in horrible rashes. Then I found Rodan+Fields, created by the dermatologists that create ProActiv. My skin has never looked better, and price point is in line with Clinique and Estee Lauder. Clinically proven, medical grade products that WORK.

  32. Alexa

    The whole organ known as “skin” is called the epidermis-not just the outer layer or whatever that person called it. Furthermore- stem cells? Really? Please look up liquid bandaid.

  33. Cathy

    I was given some free RE9 Advanced Arbonne samples to try from a distributor of a friend several months ago. I never really put anything on my face as a daily ritual, such as moisturizers, etc. I have never had a problem in past with using Noxema or St Ives products, etc. At age 46 on Christmas Day – everything changed when the day before, Christmas Eve, I thought I would treat myself to one of the free samples, thinking it was a moisturizer. Only after I applied some to my face did I read the label…RE9 Advanced antiwrinkling cream – put on before sun exposure. Well, we drove from CA to CO and while in Denver at my dad’s on Christmas Day, I woke up to a face I didn’t recognize! At first I thought maybe I had slept on a crease on my pillow case and had left marks on my upper cheek. As the morning progressed my face literally hurt! It puffed up and I felt like the Elephant Man! One side had swollen to the point of looking like it had retained fluid under my eye. My eyes felt swollen. Talk about miserable Christmas pictures that day!! Today I saw our dermatologist and he prescribed cortizone steroid as well as another cream to get my face back to normal. Mind you when he walked in door he asked me point blank “What did you do to your face?” As I read other comments here about how great the product is – you can imagine my confusion as to what could be in that product that made my face look so horrible – and wrinkly even! I hope my feedback helps here because I wouldn’t want anyone else to experience what I did – especially on Christmas Day!

    • Esthetician

      I truly hate Arbonne, but this review is ridiculius. No matter what anti aging product you use, you should never EVER expose your skin to sunlight afterward. I would be willing to bet good money that the product states not to do so, either.

  34. Tracy

    I recently purchased Arbonne Calm Moisturizer. The consultant advised me that if I see a few pimples then to continue using it until my skin gets use to it. I’ve used it for approximately 5 days now and notice my forehead getting a rash-like pimple pattern. I’m hoping this clears itself up as I’ve heard great things about Arbonne. Anyone have any insight of experience with this?

    • Alexandria

      Hi Tracey,
      Yes same thing happened to me. Are you using calm because you have sensitive skin? I am a consultant and found the perfect skin I was looking for with the Fc5 oil absorbing products 🙂

  35. Francis

    I see lots of comments from people having tried cosmetics for one or two weeks only. That is not long enough. Simply because the stems cells of the skin takes an average of 28 days to reproduce and to travel its way up to the epidermis (surface of the skin).

    I also find that clients often “over use” the products at the beginning. You need give your skin some time off so it can absorb the active ingredients and adapt to the new treatment.

    • Katrina

      what kind of pseudo science is THAT?!?!?! stop repeating the marketing phrases you were told to say and just be real. All cosmetics can have something in them that reacts poorly to a specific person’s ph balance and skin type. It is why in general (like finding a good pair of jeans) you have to try many options before finding the one that works for you.

  36. Francis

    I used to work for one of the best known and most expensive company of cosmetics in the world. As I was getting ready to open my beauty studio, I searched, researched and tried dozens of brands that I could use every day.

    My expectations were at the highest for quality, effectiveness and efficiency. But neither I, nor my clients could afford the brand I used to work for.

    And I discovered Arbonne. I ordered and tried a few products from every line of their products and I was amazed by the instant results with each of them. I ordered bigger quantities and I now use it all the time.

  37. Francis

    My recommendations:

    1. READ THE LABEL and USER’S GUIDE.
    2. Spread the use of the new treatment to half the suggested frequency.
    3. Give your skin a break once or twice a week. Don’t use any products at all on these days. Simply use clear water and let the natural bio-chemistry of your magnificent body happen on its own.
    4. Feed your skin from inside out with balance nutrition and by drinking lots of water.
    5. Quantity: LESS IS MORE. For most facial products, a few drops for gel and liquid, or a bead the size of a pearl for cream is enough to cover the entire face, neck and décolleté.
    6. Avoid cross contamination.
    When using cream in a pot, pick it up with a freshly sanitized (90% alcohol) plastic spatula or a coffee wooden stick. NO DOUBLE DIPPING.
    If using pump or spray, wipe the tip clean so the product doesn’t dry off. You should sanitize the tip of the bottle before and after every use to avoid bacteria culture.
    DO NOT SHARE your products and your cosmetics instruments. Clean, sterilize and sanitize your implements on a regular basis.
    7. Lower your expectations. There is only so much we can do against the natural aging process. Even plastic surgery doesn’t last for ever…

    When in doubts ask a certified professional esthetician or cosmetician, your doctor or your dermatologist. They are regulated by their State. In Canada, we are regulated by the Ministry of Health and by our specific field’s professional order or board in every province and territory.

    I hope this is helpful to you all.

      I’ve been using Arbonne for over 6 months now and love it, I was just wondering if the CC cream was oil free at all?

      thanks 🙂

        Hi my name is Angie and I am also an independent consultant for Arbonne. To answer your question..there are absolutely NO mineral oils in any of our products. Every product..every ingredient comes from a plant or a natural mineral. If you would like the ingredient list for cc cream or any other products email me and I will reply to your email with this info. Also..starting today we are launching an entirely new system where u can go to our websites and connect with us through there. Today, march 2 2015, I have not added my info on my site but within a few days will have it up. My personal website is angelastauter.arbonne.com. Looking forward to hear from you!

        • Katrina

          please read the ingredients, they certainly aren’t all from a plant or natural mineral…and that is FINE, because the products work, but stop spreading the falsehood that it is all natural. It isn’t. Arbonne products use palm oil, Polysorbate 20 and Butylene Glycol

    I used Arbonne just for a few weeks. My skin was not perfect but not too bad. I have pimples once in a while. The first week I used Arbonne, some pimples showed up. The lady I bought Arbonne from said the pimples might represent impurities and told me to keep using it. I bought the pimple supplements and hoped it would help clear my skin. The longer I used the products, the more pimples I had. I finally stopped using Arbonne. Even the supplements did not help my skin. Unfortunately I could not return the products since I had them more 30 days. I don’t see anybody using Arbonne has improved skin quality, except the ladies that I bought the products from and that was what they said. I did not see their skins before they used the products.

  42. Susan

    I have two friends, one started to sell Arbone around the same time my other friend’s daughter started to sell Mary Kay, we got together for lunch (I had not seen either one in almost a year). The one who sold and used Arbone looked like she had aged a lot, the other who used Mary Kay looked absolutely fabulous. I decided to use Mary Kay. I did go to an Arbone demonstration, they put a cracker in water and a cracker in oil and showed how the cracker dissolved in water not oil touting how your skin is the same, it will respond to water based products…. really? because my skin is so much like a cracker??? really stupid demonstration, they had a lot of flaws in their logic. Products are over priced, it is pyramid marketing of a poor product if you want my opinion. I was also pressured A LOT to sell the product to get it cheaper.

    • Kari

      Mary Kay products contain mineral oil – a toxic material that severely ages the skin. Also, they get some of their products from China where mandatory animal testing takes place. Mary Kay over Arbonne? Hell no. No skin care company out there can even touch Arbonne’s Swiss standard AND vegan certification.

    • Anonymous

      If you did any research about the company you would realize you’re sadly mistaken in thinking it is a pyramid scam. People might have pressured you (which isnt right) because they simply found so much joy in what they are doing. Too many people nowadays hear enthusiasm and receive it negatively. There are so many lines of Arbonne and who knows what that woman’s skin has gone through before she started the product. However if you found happiness with MaryKay thats great for you. Arbonne is not a poor product and you admitted to never even going with it so you cannot say that. Please check your facts before bashing a company.

      Your skin is actually similar to a graham cracker in that it is porous. If you put water on your skin, it will absorb into your pores leaving your skin hydrated, sort of like when you ingest it as well. Just like the graham cracker did, it absorbs the water, becoming very saturated, and starts to fall apart. If you put baby oil on your skin it stays on the outside of pores and actually blocks anything good from getting in. I think the experiment is pretty legitimate and it surely does prove a point, that products containing mineral oils and chemicals are not good for your skin. It’s common sense, really.

  43. Mark

    I really do like the arbonne protein line, I have lost 10lbs so far in the past 2 months by substituting one of my meals for there shakes.

    I am an arbonne consultant but I started using their products way before that. And I like helping people out when it comes to using natural products.

    So if you have any questions about Arbonne you can email me, or if you would like to save additional % off I can help with that as well.

  44. Mary

    I have not tried this line yet but, I’m a skincare fanatic and therefore, wanted to share my thoughts.
    I’ve used everything from drugstore products to make-up companies for skin care (Channel, Lancome, etc…). For some time now, I’ve moved to using dermatologist developed lines and natural products only. So, I can tell you from long-term personal experience and research that there is not one product in this world that will cause positive results for everyone. We are all allergic to different things and have different skin tones, etc… I’d encourage you to remember that just because you are using an organic product, does not mean you will escape an allergic reaction. All skin products are derived from some of the same ingredients, even the ones at the drugstore. For example, I used “nettle” and “eyebright” in it’s purest form from Whole Foods and became very sick with a fever. These are 100% natural herbs derived from plants. I recently started using hip rose oil (which has done wonders for clearing up and smoothing my friend’s skin) and it’s only made my breakouts worse. It’s the same concept as being allergic to molds, weeds, etc… Unfortunately, it’s a trial by error scenario and you won’t know unless you try.

    • Rose

      Mary, I thought your response was very insightful and really put things into perspective. I just ordered Arbonne’s Acne line and will keep my mind open while using it. You are completely right, we all have different skin and react differently. Thank you!

    Arbonne provides a prestigious formulation and rewards it’s clients by purchasing in bulk (average of 8 products). Packages are available exclusively through independent consultants such as myself, where you have the opportunity to purchase packages that provide 20%, 50% or 80% off.

    Since 1st hearing that Arbonne was a friends favorite product, who happens to be a Vegetarian (nearly Vegan) and has beautiful skin in her 60’s with no sign of cosmetic surgery; I had tried another product. The Sea Source Gelee given as a gift too soothe aching joints worked wonders. I have DJD. It smells like key lime pie, yet soothes, reduces swelling and bruises are cleared up almost instantly. I am 53 and noticed lines around my mouth and chin so decided to try the RE9 night face cream and day cream with spectrum 20 that my friend mentioned recommended. My Mom or my friends did not I was using them. I had dropped hints to my husband for Mothers day and got the 2 products. Soon after, in the car taking my Mom to the Doctor, while the natural light shows every line, my Mom out of the blue. said “I don’t see those lines at all, whatever you are using on your face is working!”. I told her it was the same company as the Gelee we shared. Now she is hooked. I know at the very bottom, after a long list of Vegan ingredients there is one that i have read is not natural, but it is the last of many incredible tropical ingredients only added for preservation. Nothing I have tried from a drug store even comes close to these 3 products. The gelee is a lifeaver for Joint disease, cooling lime for Hot sweats, and extracting fluid and toxins in bruising. I can’t imagine using anything else. So try it before judging it. Look in a mirror in a sunlit area, then look 3 weeks later. God Bless, J-Marie

  47. Monica

    Ihave been using Arbonne for 4 years now and love it. Yes it is pricey but I feel it is worth the money. The natural ingredients is my biggest attraction. I always have people , even strangers say ” you have the best looking skin”. Now I do use it everyday and always wash my face. My 14 years has a skin care program as well and rarely breaks out. I will say I cheated once and bought foundation from the store, and broke out…everyone has their preferences. I prefer Arbonne beauty products.

  48. Kelsey

    Ladies Would have to say a waste of money! Drug store brands at a fraction work more effectively than this line.

    • Skinthingzfl

      Drugstore products are toxic and made from lead based ingredients from china, Arbonne works and its not as expensive as you think, its about balance anyway and it is a lifestyle brand, if your are not interested in living through health and wellness, then Arbonne is not for you. My skin is more valuable to me than drugstore garbage skincare, that doesnt even work , do the same research of your garbage brands as you supposedly did of Arbonne and become an educated consumer.

      • Rae

        That’s a gross generalization and untrue characterization about the vast array products at the drug store. They have gone through years of research h and some do work. And lead based products, really? I had much success with one product. And yes I believe in health and wellness. That said, I’ve used Arbonne’s Re-9 lift with positive results and after hearing the rave reviews of both a friend and colleague, I decided to try the Re-9 Advanced. My face has broken out and as a result I’m going back to my tried and true – old ( drug store ) products to make my face clear again.

        • Anonymous

          It is a generalization but a fair one. If you realize that what is put on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream, then you would have a bigger desire to put more natural products on your skin. One thing about a product like Arbonne or Eminence for example, is that it is way more natural with very little preservatives. That is why you cannot buy them for cheap at your local drugstore. because they have a shelf life. they do expire due to the active ingredients in them. For Arbonne specifically, it expires two years after its production and 12 months after opening it. Did you know that unless your product clearly states itself as VEGAN or not using animal bi-products, it will have some in it? Do you know what animal bi-products are? That last dead deer you saw as roadkill in the ditch? yea, it was taken to a factory and boiled and boiled with leftover grease from McDonalds or wherever, until this nice little film was concocted at the top. This is very expensive for companies to get rid of in an eco-friendly way, so instead they make money off of it by selling it to skincare lines as a preservative. Have fun buying that cream at $10 next time, your clear skin you are getting from it is purely a bandaid solution, patching it up with chemicals and dead animals. By the way, after a long time of using such a harmful product I feel its safe to assume you never took into consideration the fact that your skin became dependent on your drugstore brand, thus causing it to break out, heavily, for awhile, due to it being able to finally breathe and cleanse itself? it takes 20-30 days for skin to renew its cells, thus you will never see genuine results of any skincare product until you have regularly used it that long.

      • Clarie

        Great, sound like you will be the perfect person to answer my questions, I was given a sample kit of arbonne FC5. The products feel quite good on the skin, but my question is, the product formula seems quite old fashion and traditional, many more natural ingredients are not introduces in the range. For example, cabomer(synthetic) is used as the thickener of the range while natural alternative like guar gum or xanthan gum is available. Also the range was formulated with PEG, polysorbate instead of other natural solubiliser. For preservative phenoxyethanol and potassium sorbate are used but not something more natural like totarol. So my concern is why the company rather using synthetic chemical when other alternatives are available. I’m an skin care ingredient sales, I wouldn’t say I’m an expect, but I do have a bit of knowledge in regards to formula and ingredients since I communicate with cosmetic scientists on regular basis.

        At the same time it will be great if you can explain how drugstores are selling products that are manufacture with ingredients from china and arbonne is not. Have you seen the certificate of origins of all arbonne ingredients to know where they purchase them from? There ain’t that many OEM manufacturers in the world, sometimes the most expensive skin care brand and the cheapest one can be manufactured under the same root. To be honest, many high quality good grade natural oil/essential oils(e.g. Camila tea oil) are indeed from, yes, you guess it right, CHINA!

        Before you go out there to lecture others on how they should became a more educated consumer, I would suggest you to do your own research. Go to one of the skin care ingredient wholesaler website, try to work out the cost of your arbonne product and those garbage products, sees what the price differences are. I’m very interested to know how much money went to packaging, marketing, and your commission 🙂

        • Dee

          Some of these consultants are given cars and SUVs for sales and signing up other consultants. How much are the products increased in price in order to do this??? That is the main reason I won’t even try their products. I work hard for my money and pay for my own vehicle. The company also puts these ladies up in fancy motels for days while they all talk about how to push more product and sign on more consultants. It is a pyramid scheme through and through. I see these ladies on Facebook boasting and taking pictures in Vegas and elsewhere and it just solidifies my decision to NEVER buy their expensive products. If they truly wanted to “help” people with their products, they would lower the prices.

            My friend went to the Vegas trip. She paid for her hotel 1500$ trip (from Canada) herself. The women go because they see it as a value to their sales career. It isn’t paid for them at all! Every company is about sales I would know I’ve worked for many. Do the top sales reps get cars? Yes! However, many top executives also get company cars regardless to te industry. You think bank CEOs don’t get car?!!! Haha!! To say ONLY Arbonne has meetings out of town where they talk about sales tactics.. Really? The company that you pay your hard earned dollars to for your car (that you felt the need to bring up) did the exact same thing. Why did you choose that car brand over another one? Your hard earned dollars are paying for someone’s meeting or marketing team wether you like it or not. That being said you don’t need to like the products but don’t hate on people working hard to get by in life.

    I’m a strict vegetarian and stay on a vegan diet 365 days a year. I wanted some good anti-aging products that don’t use any kind of animal products. My searches lead me to Reviews on Arbonne reviews. I read various Arbonne reviews and the Vegan review on Arbonne. I was so happy that I had finally found a good anti-aging brand which does not contain any animal products or by-products. I regularly used Arbonne RE9 advanced. It gives me good results and the biggest advantage is that, it is also environment-friendly.

        It is extremely frustrating that people keep bashing this as a way some make a living. When you buy crap from a store, wherever, somebody is wanting their cut. And thats great the inventors from your product get their fair share of recognition and payment. Consultants are paid not simply to get more buyers, but to be educators on skincare.

  50. Liddia

    I am going to my first party of this product today. I have read comments and how people talk about breaking out. As a licensed Cosmetologist I do know that a product that works to clear skin of blemishes will cleanse and bring out impurities in the skin which can/will lead to blemishes showing up for a while. If it does not clear up after a month or so then there is a possibility of a reaction the the product. Again, clearing skin of blemishes means deep cleaning and bringing forth the under skin impurities to be rid of them. Hope this will help to understand how deep cleansers work.

  51. Janet

    I too love the results I have received from Arbonne. Just like any company who has been around for over 30 years there is constant reformulation as research enhances and new info is found about an ingredient (ie if it’s harmful or beneficial) the product is changed to reflect that. The key formulator used to formulate for Aveda but when Estée Lauder bought them they introduced some lower quality and some cases more harmful ingredients so he stepped down. It frustrates me that people judge Arbonne on a few bad consultants or some poorly informed review that says there are harmful ingredients laced in them and don’t look into Arbonne close enough to realize that it was founded on a mere premise that Peter (scientist sick of all the crap ingredients being marketed for peoples skin) wanted to create a healthy effective skin care line. Vegan, a green commitment to environment, gluten free, cruelty free with 45 money back guarantee…with over 200 products to choose from. Think re9 is too expensive? There are cheaper lines – preferred clients can get a calm cleanser (that lasts about 9 – 14 months) for only $20! Find a rep that knows there stuff (perferrably not one who is going against company regulation and is soliciting themselves to be contacted on threads like this – consultants you look desperate when you do this a discredit reputable reps!! So please STOP!)

  52. Karen

    Arbonne is a very good brand and I like the entire range of Arbonne international. Arbonne products are made with so many natural ingredients and so the skin just loves them. The best product is Arbonne nutriminc re9 night cream. It has made my skin glow like never before. At first I found it a hassle to apply the cream before going to sleep. I would forget to apply it at least twice and even thrice during the week. When I realized that there were noticeable changes in my skin, I made it a point to follow this beauty regime every day. I have never been happier with my skin before. This is my preferred brand of anti aging products.

  53. Jacqueline M

    So I never had acne problems or any problems with my face but never really used lotions for my face to take care of it, I have great family genes. Now that I’m 30 I started noticing the smallest little lines on my eyes so I figured try Arbonne since I’ve heard its a great product and that its natural. Anything organic is better than all the crap out there. So I think I’m allergic to the ingredient because I started breaking out from it within a week and it stings my skin everytime I use it. So I’m still giving Arbonne a shot and will try to use less of the RE9 regimen, maybe try using it once a day and less of the moisturizers. I did notice my lines go away around my eyes which is fantastic, but now I have to figure out a way to keep my face from breaking out. So it’s a give and take situation with Arbonne for me but I figure maybe my face is too oily for this product. Perhaps do they have an RE9 line for Oily skin? Either way its the first product that actually got rid of my tiny wrinkles so it definitely works!

    • Monica

      Have you ever tried the Genius Product, it is amazing and treats Acne, my son uses it all the time and it’s on special now with the RE9 line. I am a Arbonne consultant so if you have any questions please feel free to contact me 🙂

    • Ivola

      Dear Jacqueline,

      I am an Arbonne consultant and would be more than happy to help you out.

      The RE9 line of face care products is certainly the richest, as it is the anti-aging and as such most active Arbonne line. The products are botanically based, so the main ingredients are botanicals, which in the case of the RE9 line includes a lot of citrus ingredients.

      Breaking out in the first week or so is very much normal, as your skin is doing its job and helping to cleanse your body. The stinging sensation could be due to not introducing the products gradually or perhaps using too much of them (as they contain no fillers, you need very small amounts), or in case of the mask maybe not washing it off well enough.

      But of course it is entirely possible that you may be sensitive to an ingredient, or like you said the product line may be just too rich or too much for your skin. In which case I would recommend you trying the FC5 line.

      Arbonne product lines are formulated to work best when used together. But the different product lines can be mixed and matched any way you like or ways that work best for you. And as such, you could still use the RE9 eye cream, to continually help reduce those lines you mentioned, but use a less rich or active line for the rest of your face, such as the FC5 line.

      Everyone and every skin is different. Which is why Arbonne is a try before you buy company, allowing you the chance to try actual products or samples to experience them yourself. And even after you make a purchase, there is a 45 day money back guarantee, in case you decide to return it for any reason at all.

      I would love to help you find the products or product combinations that work for you. Please contact me so we can talk and figure out what you would like to try out.

      Thank you for your time.

        Hi, I just noticed that you wrote there is a 45 day money back guarentee on Arbonne products. I used the Re9 products and have had a severe reaction around my eyes, especislly my eyelids. Swelling, redness, flakey skin (as though it had been burned), and pain. Although I have stopped using these now, nearly 4 weeks later it is still extremely bad and painful. How can I go about returning these products, and buying the less ‘active’ ones? I spent lots of money on the entire Re9 range, so it would be a huge waste to have to throw them out.

  54. Kelly Childs

    The ingredients listed on the website is supposedly not the correct FULL list that is actually in the products.
    I would never use this artificial stuff laced with chemicals and cancer-causing ingredients. No need to with so many pure, safe, organic, healthy products out here.
    Here’s a great link to read up on Arbonne’s false marketing.

    I am allergic to EVERYTHING! I have very sensitive skin. I had a friend let me try some of the Arbonne products and I instantly fell in love. My skin is clear and I no longer have irritation from makeup or cleansers. I love arbonne and would recommend it to anyone.

    I’ve recently tested out arbonne’s acne products to get rid of my acne. Before I tired the product, I only had 2 pimples. They were going away regardless of this product. I only used it for 3 days. That was enough days for me to get 10 more pimples and on my left side of my face. I wished I never tired Arbonne. I wouldn’t be in this mess. I work with people and am self conscious about my looks. I recommend when trying this product to have emergency acne back up. Don’t throw your old stuff away. Also putting on the moisturizer make my skin heat up, turn a bit red and go away. If your products are working for you, don’t try Arbonne until it’s your last resort.

  57. Raymond

    I have used some of Arbonnes “Male” products.
    I found them very expensive (Prohibitively expensive for the average person to use regularly).
    The products did not last long e.g. a moisterizer only lasted a week before the container was empty (At $30 something dollars) & I found no noticable improvement in my skin, hair etc.
    I reckon the cheap products from the supermarket would be better value but even these dont work as advertised.
    Probably a good diet would be the best remidy for skin ailments as well as clean water.

      Def using far too much product if it ran out in a week. Theres no bulking agents – less is more – see how that works for you

  58. Knickcole

    I love Arbonne products and can say that it has completely cleared my rosecea and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the RE 9 and Genius products. If you are interested in purchasing any of the product line please feel free to contact me even if you want a sample. I’m an independent consultant for Arbonne and I would love to assist you in getting the products you want.

  59. dg

    Arbonne products and consultants rock. I know many consultants and they epitomize professionalism. Unlike reps from many other mlms I have encounteted.

  60. Rachel

    There is A LOT of different opinions out there and every one needs to remember that there are so many different skin types, sensitivity, peoples diets, health history, allergies etc. So, when it comes to Arbonne and if it doesn’t work for you, instead of blaming the products not working and saying how “bad” it is, take a look at yourself and maybe why it’s not. My family and I use over 30 Arbonne products, and it was trial and error with some but I had to find what worked best for us and how frequently to use the products. I couldn’t be happier with every product and I will not look back at any other skin care, make up, or nutrition products. If you would like to work with a 100% committed, reliable, and knowledgeable consultant please reply.

    • Cathy

      While it might work great for you and others, when it doesn’t work but causes pain and fear in what is happening to one’s face, its important to comment as well. I never thought my skin was so sensitive until I put one application of that RE9 on Christmas Eve, and on Christmas Day I looked like the Elephant Man! Something really potent in that mix that I hope the makers will look into. Because if its really safe it shouldnt cause such pain and suffering in others.

    • Lourdes

      Rachel, I like your reply regarding the variety of elements to consider if a skincare does not work. I have worked for multinational brands in the past and seeing is believing what Arbonne did for me, to my family and to some of my friends with specific needs in skincare. If you are still looking for a 100% committed consultant, please reply.

  61. Erica Robinson

    I have been using Arbonne for 1year! In love like the rest! Not only in love with the anti aging but just living the lifestyle of it! It’s also a health and welless company!! You can use it from head to toe .. Literally from shampoo to toothpaste (:

  62. Naomi

    OK people, it is great that some find all these products so necessary however sometimes u need to look at what ur putting INTO ur body not necessarily ON ur body. The best hydration for ur body and skin is good old water. Drinking on average 30 ml per kilo of body weight is the required Daily amount. If ur exercising double that. Take bread and other high starchy products out of ur diet. Those with massive Acne break outs, find a naturopath who can take a hair sample, have it tested. They test for over 500 different products and foods. It will come back with what ur body needs and doesn’t need. Best ever. Fix urselves from the inside!

  63. Suzanne

    I totally agree with with the majority of comments posted. ARBONNE products are amazing. I have been using THE FC5 Arbonne shower ser, the Genius as well as their RE 9 products and not only can I see the difference in my skin but I feel it as well.

    I stumbled upon this site by accidentally and question the validty of such a site that promotes and sells products at the same time as trying to portray themselves as an unbiased or reputable source of information.??

  64. Toni

    I’ve been using Arbonne for about 7 years. My daughter used the Acne Line. I’ve used RE9 and FC5 alternatively for Winter and Summer. I am 45 and live in the desert. I like no animal testing! I won’t use products that have been stuck in the eyes of monkeys, dogs, pigs, whatever it’s pitiful! I haven’t had any problems with any of the items and I’m as pale as a person can be with super sensitive skin. I don’t use any primer that was referenced but do utilize my cleanser, serum, toner, and mostly the night creams during the day (remember it’s the desert).

    My Aunt had been using the products up until last year and switched to Mary Kay, she looks 20 years older (lives in the desert) but retirement is what happens… choices on spending.

    I am also into essential oils, so I utilize Doterra’s Immortele mixed in with my serum which stretches out both products. I do believe everything put on your skin absorbs into your organs.

    My husband purchased Au Naturel Botanicals while traveling as a gift when I met up with him. I like it but I only use it in rotation to give my skin a break.

    I think you have to try things that go along with your values and try them out. Like said above many times everyone’s skin is different. I also think that everyone does the hard sell during recession no matter what the product is… it’s up to the individual to determine if the product is what they desire.

  65. Kathleen Boston

    Hello Everyone,

    There is no need to bicker. People are going to use what they want to and believe what they want to believe, based on results and or mindset. I am a user of both Mary Kay and Arbonne. I love Mary Kay’s products for the pricing and I love Arbonne’s products for the results. It really works for me. Unfortunately, everyone will have a different experience with different products because we have different skin and body types and our skin/body reacts differently to certain products. If the product does’nt or did not work for you – get over it. If Arbonne is a scam, than so is Mary Kay and all the other companies like it. They are all multi-level marketing companies which provides the incentive of work at home and a variety of other perks, which I love.

    If you want 100% natural, then peel a cucumber and put in your eyes for the best natural effect; put cocobutter on your skin for moisturize and cleanse your face with lemon and water. There you go – all natural. Otherwise, we will run into the risk of having some sort minor ill – effect. All of these products work to some degree, for some people but not all.

    Have yourselves a blessed day and a Happy New Year. Peace and Blessings!

    • Dara

      Well said Kathleen! And I agree with all of it! What works for one may not work for another…isn’t that true of everything in life! So if the products didn’t work for you, that doesn’t mean they’re bad or not legit, just means they are not the right ones for you or maybe the one you tried wasn’t the right one! Arbonne has been around for 34 years and growing bigger than ever…there’s a reason for that and it’s not because they aren’t an outstanding company with outstanding products and ethics!

  66. Allison

    I bought arbonne products because my friend signed up to become a consultant. I did not see any improvement at all after two weeks. I should have know better. The strong fragrance is a turn off and I would much prefer having a natural smell or no smell at all.

    • anon

      I’m afraid 2 weeks is not enough time to see a visual difference and the smell is the natural ingredients. The wording “natural smell” doesn’t make sense because you can smell a cucumber and then smell an orange and one is obviously more intense but just as natural as the latter.

  67. LolaC

    Quick question -how can anyone sell skin care to clients who have never been received any formal education on skin? (by education I mean an accredited school resulting in being a certified medical aesthetician – NOT a weekend training seminar) As a professional in the industry for 10+ yrs working in cosmetic clinics and plastic surgeons offices with a background in nutrition -Arbonne is not what it is cracked up to be-I see several clients a month who’s skin has been affected by Arbonne. How can “consultants” consult without formal education on skin?

    • Heather

      With that logic, how can anyone be a representative of anything then? I’m not accredited in the risks of using plastic in the home, but I can still sell Tupperware if I wanted to. What about the sales people behind the counters in department stores that spray perfume on you or apply makeup/skin products? I get your concern, but Arbonne is not the only company to promote their product through consultants.

  68. Christine Wolf

    I started using Arbonne in early 2013 and both my teenage daughters and I (and my husband) fell in love with the products. So much so that I decided I would become a consultant and share the products with others. My face never looked better! I’m 51 and get compliments on my skin all the time. I also use the nutrition and weight management products. They are all wonderful.

  69. Catriona

    I’m an Independant Consulltant with Arbonne International and I love Arbonne! Arbonne products deliver what they say – they are pure, safe and beneficial. Means a lot to me as I have multiple allergies and sensitivities. The income is rewarding and the company is incredibly generous. The products are the best I’ve used and I won’t be changing to anything else, My skin is radiant and young looking and I am often mistaken for my daughter’s sister… that’s the best compliment ever as they are late twenties, early thirties. The protein shakes keep me looking good and are a great meal. I can’t recommend Arbonne enough. Visit my website for more info catriona.myarbonne.com.au and enjoy.

  70. Cin

    I started the RE9 only 4 days ago. My son-in-commented on how great my skin looked, he does not hand put compliments often. My daughter thought I had on makeup and I didn’t.For me it is somewhat higher than what I normally buy but it makes me feel good to know I am not loading up my face with chemicals for a change. I am hyper sensitive to smells (can cause migraines) and I have no issues with Arbonne. I love it, I feel my skin looks better everday!!!!

  71. Biba

    I just bought Arbonne Nurturing Day Lotion and I just have to mention the feeling on my skin after lady that sold this product to me, applied some of the creme on my hand. The skin on that part stayed soooooo smooth and soft for a whole day. That made me convinced to buy that lotion and try it. So I will just say, that was a good first impression.

  72. Hennessy

    Im an Arbonne Consultant, and I must say I totally love my business!!! Arbonne offers pure, safe, and beneficial products and that’s exactly what you get! We value what we do, serving people and serving them well is our goal. I love our products, they truly make a difference. We don’t “sell products” as someone said, the products truly sell themselves. Our products bring change, people start looking in the mirrors again, they bring hope and comfort. I value my company, giving is what it’s all about and Arbonne does just that. To the ones that had a bad experience I urge you to please don’t give up, our products are the TRUTH!!! When breakout occurs it’s only because your skin hasn’t been introduced to natural products, it has to adjust and trust me it will. You will feel better, look better, and everything around you will be better. I LOVE ARBONNE!!! 😉

  73. Rosemary Shapiro-Liu

    I turned 50 this year. I started using Arbonne a few months before that birthday (the RE9 Advanced range). Without a doubt I look five or six years younger than before using Arbonne. The rings and wrinkles under my eyes are vastly improved, my skin is clear and I notice the difference if I stop using Arbonne for more than three days. I haven’t had a facial this year and am using the money I would have spent on other skin care or facials (which was not a great amount) to fund my ongoing use of Arbonne. I can’t imagine stopping using the products.

  74. Sara

    I am an Arbonne lover. I started using it 8 years ago and selling it 5 years ago. I sell it only because I love it. In response to the question about ingredients. One of the reason why I love Arbonne is because they do give you a complete list of the ingredients. If you can’t find it get ahold of a consultant. We all have access to each products list and you should get your questions answered 🙂

  75. Rachel

    I have a friend who was trying to get me to join Arbonne. I have been cynical for months until she gave me the Calm range to keep and use because she said she is so positive about the product. I thought I better use the stuff because its £100 worth of stuff….I have to say I LOVE this range. My skin feels so soft and hydrated as well as clear and smooth. I love my MAC and bareMinerals makeup but I am going to invest in some Arbonne makeup after she let me play around with hers. Im actually surprised at how much I want to get.

  76. Laura

    I’m not sure how you found those ingredient lists on the website. I followed your link and was able to get them but if you just go to the main home page I can’t find a way to get back to what I viewed. Perhaps it’s an old version of the website that somehow is still available in the interweb galaxy?!

    Regardless, I have purchased Arbonne products and the ingredients are listed on the packaging. And not just the ‘key botanicals’, I mean the full ingredient list. I realize that giving the ingredients after it’s already purchased doesn’t help the consumer make an educated decision, but I don’t believe the company is trying to hide anything. Simply ask your consultant for the original packaging that s/he uses for demonstrations or for the kit you get to take home and try.

    Also, Arbonne has published that they are in the process of getting the ingredients back up on to their website. This might also be different for each country’s website.

  77. Junio Pesquets

    This ‘review’ reads like marketing for Arbonne which is just another range of vanity products, masquerading as ‘healthy’ and ‘natural’, designed to lighten the purses of individuals who are insecure about their appearance.

    • Taryn

      100% agree…look at some of the iconic beauties of the 30s, 40s and 50s many of them used good old Nivia in the blue tub and didnt need botox to stay looking young. Many of the woman I know who sell Arbonne have been getting botox, lip injections and fillers since they were in their 20’s. These posts look exactly like my facebook feed now filled with everyone trying to sell these products.

  78. sarah

    I too would like to know why it’s so hard to find a full ingredient list. I was told by a consultant that RE9 is safe while pregnant. Umm. ..there’s SALICYLIC ACID and RETINYL PALMITATE in RE9 (this is actually listed on the samples) those are two huge pregnancy no nos. So where is there an ingredient list for all products ? Seems shady. I gave up on arbonne about two wks into it.

  79. Dana

    A co-worker who is an Arbonne consultant gave me some samples to try since my face has started breaking out badly. I did a little research on the company, and I have a question. Where is the full list of ingredients for the products? Key ingredients are only listed in the catalog. That doesn’t tell me everything that is contained in the products. I want to know EVERYTHING that is in there. Where do I find this? If the company claims that their products are safe and beneficial, they should have no problem disclosing all ingredients.

    • Ivola

      Hi Dana,

      Arbonne is currently working on revamping their website and will have all full ingredient lists available soon to the general public. In the meantime, you can find many on the Internet or ask consultants, such as myself, for the full list. We would be happy to help.

  80. Racquel S

    However, L’Oréal, Clarins, R&F, etc all have animal derived products and still test on animals. Arbonne are 100% vegan and not tested on animals.

  81. Lisa

    I was wondering if anyone had a reaction similar to mine. I was using Arbibbe RE9 and the makeup primer for about 2 weeks and all of a sudden I broke out on my forehead and chin in a mass of pimples, and my skin was very, very oily. I immediately discontinued using the product about a week ago. I have not had a breakout like that EVER in my life. My skin is starting to calm down, and the pimples are healing.

    • Linn

      Lisa, thank you for posting as I feel that I’m not alone now. Exact same experience- Used it for two weeks then WHAM – a scattering of tiny pimples on my temples and cheeks- hard, bumpy pimples. Never had acne in my life and have had flawless skin except for age (52). I read the reviews too late and should have done some research before buying. My consultant is telling me that it is because toxins from my skin are coming to the surface and it is normal. The problem is that my skin is horrendous looking. No product should make a person endure this.

      • CL

        I had the same issue using the calm/acne skin care line and I though it was all a bunch of bs honestly. However, I was on a furlough from work and since I wasn’t going out much, I figured I’d suffer through to see if my consultant was telling the truth. 2 weeks later and the results are amazing! All of the pimples have gone away and I finally am seeing the skin I had before adult acne hit me. 🙂

  82. Ashley

    I am not an Arbonne consultant but I love all of their products. I am actually a massage therapist and I know a lot about the body and skin and how it works and the skin care lines you talk about that you can get so much cheaper at a drug store are absolutely terrible for your skin. Mineral oil is in all of those and that is awful for your skin and it is in everything and they have even changed the name in some products not to mention the many other chemicals in them to. In massage school we are taught to never use it because it prevents your skin from breathing which can lead to many other skin issues. I used pro active when i was younger and it made my face look worse than it ever did. I love that they don’t put all those harmful chemicals in the products. They are so much better for your skin and health over all because you have to think about what you put into your skin gets absorbed into your body as well!! As far as the price it is expensive but you get what you pay for and I can personally say that I have had my make up foundation for over a year and still I am not close to running out. You don’t have to use a lot of these products and they will last you forever. If you count up how much money you spend on drug store cosmetics every month you could have already bought the foundation and had it for a year. Their products are amazing and My skin and body love them I recommend them to every one.

  83. Jaqi

    I recently purchased the Arbonne soothing facial serum from the new “calm” line of products because I have sensitive/combination skin. I first heard of Arbonne when a coworker was having an Arbonne facial party at her home. I loved the products we tested and saw almost immediate results. When the serum came, I started using it 2x a day after normal cleansing and after only a week or so I noticed that my skin does not dry out like it used to NOR does it get oily at the end of the day. The serum itself is loose but absorbs quickly into the skin. I also notice that my skin tone is even and I don’t see any dark spots or marks! All around great product, and well worth the money- $45 for the serum but YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

  84. Tonya

    I am a new Arbonne Consultant, The products are awesome, beneficial and not harmful. I had been getting acne around my mouth recently due to menopause and since using Arbonne I have had no breakouts and my husband thinks that I wear makeup now lol. Bottom line is this, what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body, do you really want to have all the harmful ingredients that are in most products these days going through your body. Its bad enough that we breath, eat and drink garbage do yourself a favor and try Arbonne and feel the difference. When you use our products you will have the peace of mind that they work, they are healthy and no animals were harmed in the process of making them. I will never use anything else, I love it and its done wonders for my skin.

  85. Imogen

    I decided to try Arbonne skin care products out and I am glad I did. Since turning 30, I have started to develop fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. I started using the RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Masque for 20 minutes and I noticed the size of the wrinkles have kinda reduced. It is a little irritating because it was not designed for the eyes but it works.

    • Kaye

      Hi Imogen please check your instructions for the Cellular Renewal Masque. You leave it on for 5-7 minutes ONLY, no longer. your skin around your eyes is very delicate and you shouldn’t be applying the masque too close to your eyes. The masque definitely works for fine lines, open pores, pigmentation and skin smoothness etc, but needs to be used per instructions. Have you tried The Genius resurfacing pads as they are also a brilliant product. As this is an old post I am hoping you have already received this info.

  86. Kimberly

    I have used Arbonne for about a year and I love it. I can see the difference and I get a lot of compliments on my skin. I am 47, I don’t have any wrinkles yet but I use the RE9 line and will continue to use it. I also drink the raw vegetable drinks and lots of water that helps too.

  87. Lisa G

    Met a young consultant who is so push and inexperienced with skin care and so desperate for me to try the free trial sizes of the Re9 skin care that I did. I have aging, oily skin and found the products to be weak and overprices and, more importantly, the reviews are too controversial leaning towards the negative. The consultants really only make their money on overrides if you decide to become a consultant or a preferred client.
    Bottom line you can get better anti aging products at the drugstore with L’Oreal, Neutrogena or Olay !

    • Lisa

      Lisa,
      I would love to share samples with you from my new company! Competitively priced and result driven! Arbonnes is well over priced and they keep changing the formula. All our products are gluten free, vegan friendly, and all natural with organic ingredients. No animal products or by products, no parabens, no chemicals, dyes or fragrances.

      • Jody

        Hi Lisa,

        Obviously you are not an Arbonne consultant….this is good. Would you please send me the name of the organic company you are associated with at this time? I’m very interested in finding out more about your products and if this is a direct sales company.

        Thanks, Jody

  88. Paula

    Lori…I wouldn’t advertise that your company created proactive…it’s a toxic product. (although your current product line may not be) My clients have shown me their towels, completely bleached after proactive use by their teenagers. They switched to arbonne’s clear advantage line and their teens achieved similar or better results, from botanically based ingredients. And yes, I’m a very enthusiastic Arbonne consultant. paulahrankowski.myarbonne.ca (.com for USA pricing, but my personal Canadian site will tell you a little more) Have a look at the new Genius product if you are concerned about anti-aging. Product development have measured, using calipers, the decrease in wrinkle depth. It also helps with redness, blotchiness, roughness and acne!

    • Danielle

      I have used almost every chemical and chemical free acne products and now will only ever use Arbonne’s clear advantage and it works so well and doesn’t burn my face and I am using it with our new Genius and i am loving my results 🙂 i also sell Arbonne

  89. Jackie

    I thnk we all have to remember everyones skin is different. What might work for you may not work for me. I have sensitive skin and have tried almost every product. Last time I had a facial was at an Elle Bache Salon (gift voucher from well meaning husband), When I came out I looked as though I had spent the day in the sun my skin was bright red. Clinique, Clarins, Revlon, Natio and many more all make my skin react. Recently I started using Arbonne the Calm Range as a friend’s daughter had started selling the product and I thought I’d give it a try as they have a money back guarantee. Well my skin loves it, friends have commented on how good my skin looks. I am 60 so I am very happy with that. What I like about Arbonne is you get to use the products for a week (trial pack) and if you like it place an order and THEN you still have a 45 day money back guarantee. For me this product really works

    • Danielle

      Jackie, I recommend you try our new Genius paired with the calm that way you will get anti aging as well and my mother has super sensitive skin and she is able to use it all over her face without her eyes swelling shut 🙂

  90. Karen

    I have been using Arbonne for 3 months and have switched from Dermalogica skincare and Estee Lauder cosmetics which I have been using both for 10 years+, I am loving the way my skin looks and feels and even decreasing fine lines and skin feels even and looks radiant.

    I do use the full RE9 range and have just bought the Genius product and am applying that at night and then cleanse, tone, moisturise afterwards. My skin is looking great! In the morning I do use the primer and the Arbonne Foundation and mineral powder and I am so pleased with the way it looks feels and to touch is smooth and I genuinely feel gorgeous and proud and want to show off my face! Happy Happy with the results and recommend to everyone!

    • Danielle

      Karen, I am pretty sure you are suppose to use your cleanser before you use your Genius at night…Thats what I do. You will see maximum results that way. Have you tried our new cc cream it’s a 10 in 1 and so far I love it more than my foundation and same with my clients.

  91. Kim Roberts

    I have used Arbonne products for 4 weeks and although love how it makes my skin “feel”, it is really breaking my skin out. I am unable to use it because of the deep, large, scaring bumps I am having. I am choosing to send the product back for the full refund. Now saying that, I have held twice for over 20 minutes to be told the first time, “I need the order number.” I got that and held again for over 20 minutes to be told,”We can’t give you the information because the order was not put in your name.” “The consultant has to call us.” Really!!!! If it wasn’t so expensive I would just leave it alone and not worry about all the hassle of returning it.

    • Renee

      I have the exactly same problem. I had to stop using arbonne because of the deep, large acne that won’t come out and create scaring and bumps. I never ever in my life had that and I’m afraid the scares won’t go away. Did yours go away Kim?

    • Lisa

      Kim,
      I was an Arbonne consultant for 6 years. Many of my clients had the same issue as well as my team. I am no longer with Arbonne! I am with a new company called Apriori Beauty. I will tell you that we do not have people breaking out from the products. They are all natural with organic ingredients, vegan friendly and gluten free. We just launched amazing new products. I would love to send you some samples of our products. Our technology is ten years ahead of anything on the market today :). M

    • Danielle

      Kim, Your independent consultant can look up your order number on webstats while they are logged into their account on Arbonne.com and actually you are suppose to give back your products to them and have them return it and you have a 45 day money back guarantee. If you are using the RE9 advanced line and that is what you are having a allergic reaction to, I bet it is due to the vitamin c and I recommend you try our new Calm line paired with our new Genius. My mother has really sensitive skin and she can use them and is loving her results 🙂 I personally use every line, and my son uses the ABC baby and my bf uses the mens and we all love it and I will never use anything but Arbonne. I love my results and I love selling it 🙂

  92. Angela

    I used to use Arbonne but last year was introduced to a new product Luminesce by Jeunesse a unique product and the serum is 85% active ingredients. I have had such amazing results with fine lines that I have since become a distributor and earning great income. I was previously a party plan manager but my new business is much more family friendly.

  93. Amber

    An interesting article .. although I can not help thinking one sided. I appreciate that you are trying to sell your product, however you state that the product is made without a list of chemical ingredients (including common bulking agents) and yet you give the formula only a 3/10 rating, I would be curious as to how the scoring was done.

    I guess to some a lack of that list makes the product work better in there mind – although I searched on each one, and feel I would rather not be using them … maybe arbonne is moving in the right direction – especially with no animal testing and being vegan friendly

  94. Mia

    After using Arbonne products for about 2 years, I decided to become a consultant just a few days ago. Personally, I’m a 20 year old college student with a low income and sensitive/dry skin. The price of the product was worth it, because I never really use a whole lot; some of the things I bought the first time I came in contact with Arbonne are still in my makeup bag! The products are gentle and don’t irritate and dry out my skin, and it all smells nice and feels good on my skin.
    The only thing that I have a problem with in Arbonne, is that the cosmetics do need to be reapplied every once in a while. They do not contain many chemicals that keep cosmetics from fading, getting wiped away by a stray hand, or etc; however, I don’t mind this, because the things that do cause makeup to stay in place are usually harmful.

  95. Wendy

    I have tried everything on the market and Arbonne is by far my favorite anti aging skin care range. My skin looks much clearer and I have less wrinkles on my face. I have been using it for some time and I have seen a gradual improvement in my skin tone. I have recommended Arbonne products to friends and family and they are all very happy with Arbonne.

  96. Rose

    I am writing this Arbonne review because I have been using Arbonne skin care products for many years and find them to be very effective and they have kept my skin looking young, smooth and calm. I have far less wrinkles now than I did last year.

    Yeah so I am 17 and I have a question. I mistakenly used the arbonne firming body cream on my lips and face for 3 weeks and it seems as though my skin is plump and thick due to the effect. I stopped using it for awhile. Will the effect of the arbonne firming body cream fade and eventually deceased until normal? I stopped for awhile.. I’m just concerned. Thank you 🙂

    I just turned 60 and I have a lot of deep wrinkles, lines and creepiness all over my face. I was using Arbonne for a good year but did not see any improvement at all. I found it to be a waste of money. I would like to try a different skin care product and this is why I am on your site.

      Sofia, being 60 with lots of deep wrinkles and lines, I’m sorry but nothing short of surgery can help you, no skincare on Earth can erase them, just make your skin hydrated and soft. Your skin will not improve ever again, its all down hill. You cannot blame any skincare.

      Dear Sofia, if you haven’t tried Nerium, please consider it! I have been using it on my husband a little over a month mow and his results are dramatic. They claim you can get 10 years back in 1-3 months, and I see it happening. Feel free to contact me.

      Sofia, if you want to see results, try Rodan+fields anti-aging skincare. I’m a consultant for them. The Stanford graduates were the original creators of the acne line proactive. They have started a new company & their products are multi-med based…prescription mixed w/botanicals. These products work & you will see results in your skin. R+F is HOT right now & they’re branching into Canada…people LOVE the results they see w/ their 4 anti-aging skincare & essentials line. I’m also hiring for consultants on my team…spread the word. If interested in product visit my website llama.myrandf.com or email me umahni@gmail.com arbonne is a good product, but it it’s not going to give u same skin changing results as r+f…which works below the surface to tackle aging skincare issues, such deep lines, age spots, redness, large pores. Email me, be happy to chat w/ you about your skincare needs. Best, Lori

    I have been using Arbonne for the last 4 years and I first fell in love with it when my friend gave me a sample. She was an independent consultant for Arbonne while she was studying and it made her a good income. She is now working in marketing at another skin care company. In short, Arbonne worked for me and I am writing this review so you can try Arbonne and to see if it works for you.

      I use Arbonne skin care every monring and I love it. I have very sensitive skin and I’m usually allergic to the microbeads in other face scrubs even if they claim to be hypoallergenic. But for whatever reason, I haven’t had a breakout or allergic reaction to this face scrub. I’ve noticed a huge difference. My boyfriend even compliments how smooth and even my skin tone looks since I began using it about 3 months ago. It lasts a good while. I bought it back in May and I’m still using the same container. It’s great!!!!!!
