  • Arbonne Awaken Sea Salt Scrub

    I wish I had more of this product. I LOVE using this on my legs to get them silky smooth. As with all of the Awaken products, it smells amazing. I love the citrus smell. It really does wake you up if you use this in the shower. It does a great job exfoliating my skin but it is also very gentle. I would not, however, recommend using it after shaving. You are rubbing sea salt into your legs and any little cut or opening will start to sting. I really wish I could use it after shaving, though -- then I'd have REALLY smooth legs.

  • Arbonne Intelligence Daily Eye Cream

    I first tried this product at an Arbonne party and we did the experiment where we put the product on just one eye and then looked at each other to see if we could guess which eye it was. Every single person got it right. What a difference. Whenever I'm feeling stressed or I know my skin isn't looking quite how it should, I apply a little bit of this under my eyes and it instantly looks like I got several more hours of sleep than I actually did. Great for firming up under eye skin and keeping discoloration at bay.

  • Arbonne About Face 10 Piece Precision Brush Set

    I got these for Christmas about 6 years ago and they have lasted this whole time! It's a great starter set of brushes and a very quality one, at that. The clutch that they come in is adorable and is such a great color. i love that the brushes and the clutch match. The blush brushes are very soft and can be used to apply as much or as little powder as I want. The eye brushes are fantastic -- I am especially in love with the angled eye brush. I use it with gel liners (I wash it after every use!) and I also use it to smudge pencil and cream liners. It's perfect for adding some water to powder eye color to make a custom eyeliner too. The bristles are smooth and straight and I always get a good, clean line. I've had this set for many years now and with proper care and cleaning, it will last for many more. The ONLY complaint I have is that the bristles tend to fall out of the blush brushes. Not a huge deal, I just have to remember to do a bristle check before I head out the door!

  • Arbonne Intelligence Skin Conditioning Oil

    Arbonne Intelligence Skin Conditioning Oil

    Saves my lips and my hands

    I tend to get chapped lips during the winter, especially around the edge of my lower lip. When drinking more water just doesn't do it fast enough, I apply a little bit of this oil around the edge of my lip and it instantly starts feeling better. After only a few days, my chapped lips look plump and smooth again and all of the cracks are healing. It also takes care of windburn. It's great for cuticles too! After I buff my nails, I put a drop on each finger and rub it in for glowing, straight-from-the-salon looking fingers. And the feeling lasts for the rest of the day -- not just that hour. Great product, and it lasts a really long time!

  • Arbonne NutriMinC RE9 Refinish Hydrating Body Lotion

    I love the scent of this product. I have the serum and the body lotion and the orange smell is so refreshing and invigorating! Although I love Arbonne products, I'm not sure if this lotion is much better than other (cheaper) products I've tried. Seems like I've gotten similar effects for less than half the price. One other complaint -- the serum spreads easily but the lotion is so thick out of the pump, I tend to have to apply more just to spread it around. I haven't tried the new version of this, but I am pretty fond of the old.

  • Arbonne Intelligence Exfoliating Masque

    My mom bought this mask off of a family member who sold Arbonne and then decided that she didn't have time in her routine to use it. So, I inherited it. I LOVE this mask. You only need a little bit of product to get full coverage. The tube I had (which was already used) lasted me several months. It goes on like a regular mask and then you 'activate' the heating elements by dabbing your fingertips in water and spreading that over your mask-covered face. The warming sensation feels SO GOOD. I loved the feeling of rinsing it off with cool water. Such a refreshing feeling. This mask cleaned out my pores, made my black heads nearly disappear, and left me with a rosy glow that I could wear right out the door. There were many times that I didn't put on foundation after using this mask. I just slapped on some mascara and out the door I went! What a great product. It's pricey, but totally worth it. I'm so glad I got to try it for free!

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer

    I bought this because I tend to have good luck with Covergirl and Olay products. I am early 20's, but anti-aging products tend to work really well on my skin. Plus, I usually like the "facelift" benefits. I saw no advertised "facelift." What I did see was greasy nose, pores, cheeks, chin, etc. I almost stopped using this product after the first 10 minutes. It was so greasy feeling on my fingertips that I barely wanted to put it on my face. I gave it a try though, and it went on greasy as well. Oddly enough, it felt alright once I put my makeup on. I use an oil-control translucent powder to set my makeup and I think that may have been the only reason that I wasn't greasy right from the beginning. At work, I could feel my face gradually grow greasier and greasier. Even before lunch, I was blotting my nose with bathroom tissue because I don't carry any makeup with me to work. By the time I left work, my face felt worse than it does when I've been sweating. I went home and complained to the fiance about the primer and he touched my face and went, "Wow. You feel really greasy." (He's always super honest, but he's never said that before!) I am SO disappointed with this product. I'm thinking I'm just going to buy an expensive primer next time. I wish I had saved the money from this one and put it towards a better primer. A makeup artist put a more expensive primer on my face for my friend's wedding and my makeup stayed put ALL DAY, even when I was sweating like crazy in a tiny chapel during the ceremony. I know there are good primers out there, and this product apparently just isn't one of them.

  • Emjoi Light Caress Epilator

    Emjoi Light Caress Epilator

    Finally, a solution to my 'miracle grow' hair!

    I hate shaving. Or rather, I have having to shave every single day to keep up that smooth feeling. I have fair skin and dark hair that grows VERY fast. And even when I shave, you can see the dark hair roots in my legs still. Laser treatments are too expensive for me, so I wanted something that didn't include chemicals (Hair removal creams just make my legs turn red and blotchy and remove none of my hair) that could give me smooth legs for at least a couple of days. I bought mine on Amazon and got a really good deal for it. I like that it's corded because it doesn't run out of juice mid-hair removal. I was SO scared to use it the first time because of the noise it made and how quickly the gold-plated tweezers were spinning. The first time hurt -- I was pulling hundreds of hairs out by the roots! After the first time it's a lot easier because you get used to it and there aren't as many hairs to pull out. I LOVE the light. I am so glad this model has a light because I can see even the fine, blonde hairs that I would otherwise miss. The shape of the epilator is perfect for my legs. I have yet to try it on my armpits. It's a little harder to get the bikini line because of the curve of the head so I'm thinking about purchasing a smaller version for that area. With a bit of contorting, though, I usually get that area pretty clean too! Mine also came with a massaging attachment. I used that for the first few months and then switched over to the regular head. The only areas I notice a difference in comfort are around my ankles. I prefer the massaging head for that area. I would recommend that any new user start slow and do areas one by one. It does take some time to do it, but if I have a spare hour, I can get smooth legs that last FAR longer than taking 10-15 mins. to shave every day. Plus, I don't have those obnoxious little black roots peeking out! I've also noticed that the more I epilate, the lighter and thinner my leg hair is coming back in. I REALLY like that.

  • St. Ives Purify Exfoliating Body Wash

    St. Ives Purify Exfoliating Body Wash

    My favorite summer scrub

    This one smells SO GOOD. It's gentle enough that I could use it every other day, but I could still feel that it was exfoliating my skin. The scent is really soft and refreshing, and not overpowering at all. It lathers pretty well. I used mine with a loofa and I found that the product spread better that way than when I used a wash cloth. My biggest problem with it is that I went through it so quickly!

  • St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

    I love St. Ives products and I bought this because it was so much cream for so little money. This jar lasted me probably close to 6 months. And because there was no sunblock in it, I used it for morning and night. It goes on so smooth and left my skin feeling really soft. And like every St. Ive product I've tried -- it smells great. I will say that I did experience some acne while I was using it, but I wouldn't attribute that to this moisturizer. I've upped my water intake, switched my face wash, and started exfoliating weekly or twice-weekly. My acne has all but disappeared. I'm tempted to get back to using this moisturizer again because I loved the scent and the value so much!
