Arbonne or Something Better??

I am looking for REAL opinions about Arbonne products or other lines of product from people who have actually seen results with them. If you sell them, that is fine, but please don't exaggerate the product into something its not. Does anyone have real life experience with something that you absolutely love for your face? The main "issues" I have with my skin are fine lines, large pores and some sun spots here and there. I am trying to avoid a costly and uncomfortable chemical peel.. I have tried Avon Anew products and have used entire full-size jars of products from both the Regenerest and Rejuvenate line, applying them faithfully for months, and have seen no results. So I am done with Avon and on the search for something new. Thanks mamas!

I used Arbonne skin care in the past and it worked fine, no better then anything else I tried (Regenerest, Aveeno, Neutrogena, Clinique, Benifits, Bobbie Brown, RoC, etc). I think it's hit & miss with a lot of this stuff, I would LOVE to find that ONE or two products that really worked to get rid of the tiny lines but I haven't found it yet. - Good Luck!

Hello!
I have had good results with products containing Retina A. They are expensive but last a very long time, a tube requires a visit to the dermatologist and costs 100.00. But I am 52 and often taken for thirty something, I am not kidding. Good luck!

I use Nicole Miller and I absolutely love her skin care line and makeup! I don't sell these products but I do love telling people about them! They have a guide to find your skin type and to learn your skin care options. Less $ and less fuss :) All natural ingredients and your skin looks and feels great! I have always had oily skin, or so I thought! When I started looking at the Nicole Miller guild I realized that I have combination skin and they told me exactly what to get for my skin type. I have seen a major difference and that is all I use now! I also use her skin revitalizing serum that works and I LOVE! Hope this helps and I would always love to share more :)

I have seen results for myself and others with GLIMPSE. This is a product of XanGo. It's not only natural - but there are NO TOXINS. That is huge.
My skin had a rough texture, I had wrinkles starting by my eyes and neck, puffy under eyes, and some age spots starting. Not exaggerating...I took before and after pics. This is a quality 4 step system. It actually brings NUTRITION to your skin. I am a rep, so if you're interested in trying it, please get back with me. You're welcome to go to my website www.ktlosee.mymangosteen.com - Click on GLIMPSE. Contact me - I'll send you a sample!

I am currently using Aveda All Sensitive Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer on my face and I love it. I’ve used it for 10 years now. It’s great because I can slap on some lotion in the middle of the day if I need to, and it is never oily or greasy.

I am slowly “switching stores” and converting everything to Nicole Miller’s beauty line. I don’t sell the products, but I can show you how you can get them.

So I have your question bookmarked because I want to know the same thing. Please let us know what you try and how it works! Also, what type of skin do you have? I have the same issues I want corrected as you do, but I have dry skin also.

I have used Nicole Miller and wasn't impressed. But it has been a couple of years. It is very possible they have changed thier line since then. But if is the same as it used to be, I quit using it after the first bottle was gone.

Mary Kay skin care has been #1 for the past 13 years in a row!!!! Check out the TimeWise line.

I can tell you the diaper rash stuff is the bomb anything else I don't know about.

I love Nicole Miller too and they have a 60 day money back guarantee on an empty bottle so no risk in trying it.

HI R.,

I use Nicole Miller products and love them. I used to have crow's feet and they are completely gone now. I rarely wear foundation because my skin looks really good. I also take an absorbable multivitamin and a grape skin based supplement that helps with the elasticity of the skin and it has improved my skin even more.

Go to www.cosmeticsdatabase.com and see which cosmetics are toxic and which are not. Just because it makes your skin look good for a while doesn't mean it's not doing damage. Avon is one of the most dangerous on the market. Avon, Lancome, Mary Kay, Clinique and Estee Lauder have all been sited using phthalates. Phthalates is what is used in plastics (like vinyl siding) to make it pliable. This was documentation from 2 years ago and I have yet to have anyone show me any new documentation that the phthalates have been removed. If anyone has it I would love to see it.

I have never used Arbonne and I know people who love it but it does contain Q-15 which is a known cancer causing agent. The Arbonne statement says they only use the FDA limit but over time it adds up. Your best best is to do your own research. The website I gave you is a good place to start.

Hope I helped!

I also use Shaklee's Enfuselle. I took a before picture and could count the number of lines in the crow's feet area that were gone in 3 days (no exaggeration!) Twelve years later, my face still looks better than the before picture-no blemishes, blotches, etc. My husband is about 7 years younger than me and everyone things I am younger than him.
Shaklee is the number one seller of natural supplements and they figured out how to get that nutrition into the skin. There are 8 patents on this line. They also have Minerelles makeup-so good for your skin you can sleep in it. Before Enfuselle, I would not leave my house without makeup, now I rarely wear any.
Let me know if you would like some samples.
Before you try some of the other products, you may want to go to http://www.ewg.com and check them out to find out if they contain harmful ingredients.

Yep - I absolutely agree with the SHaklee products - Enfutox and their PM repair and eye cream are fabulous! My aunt has been using it for years and everyone always thinks we are sisters! I have been using Shaklee products for 32 years (the multi was put in my formula in the NICU) - but just started a business for myself last year (discount for Mamapedia users). As stated, try it out! They have a 100% moneyback guarantee on EVERYTHING! You can call or email me with any questions or visit this link to see the products and get a better description:

I also have a Mamapedia "perk" and ad on here for extra discounts. I would love to chat with you any time.

Take care - I hope you try the products, whether from me or someone else, just try them out - they are exceptional and I guarantee you will love the results!

My MIL loves Arbonne products. Her skin looks fantastic!
The Shaklee products sound good. I am totally unimpressed with Nicole Miller and you have to buy at least $70 worth of Melaleuca products per month in order to even get the Nicole Miller products. Depends on how much of a commitment you want to make.
Good luck in your decision! I use extra virgin coconut oil on my face as a moisturizer. I do also like the Alba vitamin C line. You can get that at Target, in the natural area of the cosmetics. It's in a bright orange box.

I love Arbonne. The difference between them and many of the competitors is that they are made with 100% natural ingredients. No chemicals. I absolutely love their sugar scrub. My skin never looked better. It is pretty pricey, but certainly less that high-end department store brands. Arbonne reps usually give out a lot of samples. Get some and see how it works for you.

I second Shaklee Enfuselle, I have used it since it first came out. Does it work? No one ever believes me when I tell them how old I am. Everyone assumes I am in my early 30's when in truth I am mid 40's. My experience -fine lines diminished, large pores clean and small, old scar faded, and sun damage corrected.

I don't sell Arbonne and I can't say about it. But I do sell and use Shaklee's Enfuselle. I do think it is fabulous. I believe you would see results within 2 weeks. I did. It is extremely reasonably priced. I could go on and on about real studies, etc..., but I would rather tell you to try it, and if for any reason you aren't happy you can get your money back. You won't want your money back.
