Recently my local Arbonne consultant got in touch to ask if I would like to review some products and of course I said yes.
Donna, the Arbonne consultant, sent me the Intense Hydration Mask, Arbonne Intelligence CC Cream, Pure Vibrance Colorlast Hair Serum, RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream and a vanilla and java eye shadow duo, all of which you can see below:
The first thing I tried was the Intense Hydration Mask as I have been having problems with dry skin. The mask was good because it didn’t really dry in and a mask so dry that it cracks is really not what you want when you have dry skin. I left it on for 10 minutes, washed it off with warm water and noticed a real difference after just the first use. My skin felt a lot smoother and a lot less dry than it had been. I think if you have dry skin it really couldn’t hurt to give it a go.
Once my skin was feeling a bit better I tried the CC cream and it was a little bit dark for my skin but not overly so, I could get away with it If I blended it well at my neck. It was actually a really nice colour that made me look like I had been away in the sun for a week or two but it wasn’t too orangey which was good.
The eye shadow duo is a good little hand-bag extra, the brown is great for a smokey eye, it blends really well and it’s easy to remove. It’s inspired me to try a brown smokey eye. The vanilla wasn’t bad but it wasn’t anything to rave about either, just a normal eye shadow that does the job.
I tried the hair serum twice because I didn’t realise the first time around just how little you need to use, seriously – a lot goes a long way with this stuff, once I got the hang of it it was quite good at smoothing down frizz, particularly when I was wearing my hair back in a pony-tail but you have to be extremely careful not to make your hair look greasy. I found putting a teeny tiny bit in the palm of my hand and rubbing my hands together before applying to my hair was the best way to get the results I wanted.
I didn’t really notice a result with the lifting and contouring eye cream but I think maybe that it is meant for more mature skin, I have some dark pigmentation under my eyes but I don’t have puffiness or bags so there wasn’t really anything to lift or contour in the first place. The cream smells quite nice though and it comes in a lovely chic little pot that looks nice enough to leave on show somewhere in the bedroom or bathroom.
Overall I would say that if you like discovering new beauty brands you should give Arbonne a go because you just might find something you like. I’ve used my Intense hydration mask more than once and I’m very glad that Donna chose to send me this.
Arbonne is a global brand and Donna can supply anyone in UK, USA, Canada, Poland and Australia with products/service, her details are below and her website link is also the place to find out the prices of everything I have reviewed.
Finally, I would just like to say thanks to Donna for sending me these products to try :)
