  • Arbonne Natural Radiance Mineral Powder Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen

    My mother is technically an Arbonne consultant (she only signed up with them to get the consultant's discount), and until recently, this was the best mineral foundation I'd ever used. I ditched Bare Essentuals for it. It match my skin tone perfectly, blended well, and I got tons of compliments from complete strangers. Then a couple of months ago, Arbonne started repackaging everything and selling product for higher prices in less quantities. I repurchased the foundation anyway assuming that even with higher price, at least I would still be getting the same product I had always loved. Boy, was I wrong. Apparently, along with everything else, they changed the formulation too and now this stuff is absolutely terrible. It doesn't blend at all; wherever my brush first hits my face is where the powder stays in one ashy color blob on my skin no matter how much I try to blend it in. I washed it all off, used the last specks of the old version, and then went to Sephora and stocked up on all my old BE products. It's sad really. I know the company is hurting for money, but I don't understand how they can expect to stay in business by selling cheaper product for more expensive prices in less quantities. If you are currently a fan of this foundation like I was, I say cherish the remaining product you have, use it sparingly, try to snatch up as much of the old version on Ebay as you can, and in the meantime try to find a replacement because you are not going to be happy with Arbonne's "new and improved" mineral foundation once your current supply runs out.
