“You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert
Today I must talk about Arbonne. You may or may not have heard of this company. If you haven’t….think of Avon meets Whole Foods. It is top of the line beauty products that you can sell and have a stay at home business. I am not a sales person. I couldn’t sell a bag of money. I am still a little unsure if Arbonne is going to be my at home business or just the place I get my beauty products from. Anyway, I fell into this company through my sister-in-law. She wanted my husband and I to be consultants and for the last two months we have been. I knew nothing about this company before I heard about it two months ago. I was and I still am a little skeptical. I try new products pretty frequently and I am always so surprised by the outcome. I started with little samples of the gelee and I have to tell you that when the samples were dwindling down I started to feel a little anxious….like “what am I going to do now!!”. So as a new consultant you can order anything and automatically get 35% off. Also, as a new consultant, if you spend up to $150.00 on your first order you get to pick a free gift. One of those gifts is the Genius system for your face which retails at $95.00(and you get it free!). So I did it. I spent the money. I got the gelee I wanted so bad, the RE9 rejuvenating skin serum, some lip balm, and an exfoliating sea salt scrub. I also chose the Genius system as my free gift. Now, like I said, I knew nothing about this stuff. I knew nothing about RE9 products and anti-aging products. I just figured I would get makeup for the rest of my life to hide the things I did not like about my aging face. Let’s rewind back a moment. I am a 36 year old woman with two children aged 7 and 8. When I had my second child, a girl named Sofia, my skin got weird. I felt so old and I looked it. I even got two little liver spots on my left temple which I have been covering up for the last 7 years. I just thought, “oh well, I am getting older. I have to try to embrace it”. I had tried lots of different products on my very sensitive skin and they would make me break out. At times I felt like a teenager again with all of my pimples. That’s what my skin situation was in a nutshell. I started using the gelee on my face because I had free samples of it and I wanting something nice for after my shower. I would say that by the next day I was seeing a difference in the way my skin looked and felt. I started liking the person I saw in the mirror again. I thought that maybe if I tried the anti-aging products I could possibly see an even better result. That is when I made my first order. I am now currently using the serum on my face twice a day, the gelee all over my body, and the sea salt scrub in the shower. I really can’t believe the difference in my face. I feel that it is pretty drastic. No, I don’t have any before and after photos because I really didn’t think it was going to work. Some of the negative blogs I have read on the products say that there are better products on the market, but I really don’t care. This is working for me. Not only that, but the products are not tested on animals, they are certified vegan and gluten-free, and they are made from botanicals(so that means no nasty ingredients). I am currently using the genius system on my face as well and my liver spots are fading before my eyes. I am not wearing makeup because my skin looks so good without it. I really can’t speak highly enough about this product and what it has done to boost my self confidence. I don’t feel I had a problem with myself prior to using the products, but it is the result that has made me just feel so good about myself in a way I didn’t know was missing. I am sure there are a lot of moms out there that are busy all day and the last thing they want to do is fuss with themselves. They don’t want to search around for something they don’t need or like me…put their kids needs before their own and say, “who cares about beauty products”. Being a mom is so hard and sometimes you just need something to boost you up. This stuff did that for me. Of course, it is for all women, men, and even children. They have a great protein powder, meal replacement bars, kids vitamins, a whole men’s line, and even toothpaste. They really have it all. I hope this helps those of you that have thought about this company or maybe I may have even stirred up some interest in a new product. I would encourage you to find a consultant in your area to try out some free samples from them to see how it works for you and your skin. Maybe, you might even start your own business. Whatever the outcome, I hope this was helpful. Until next time….
