Skin Care Products- Looking for a Good OTC Alternative to Arbonne

Updated on June 26, 2011
S.G. asks from Los Alamitos, CA

I have used Arbonne products off and on for several years and especially LOVE the Re9 cleanser. I like the way my skin feels when I use it, I love the way it smells, and people tell me I look much younger than my 47 years. But I'm running out again and wondering if there are any Arbonne moms out there who have found a similar product over the counter. In this financial climate it's hard to justify the expense, and I really am an instant gratification kind of gal. I'd love to just drive to the store, buy something and be done, instead of calling my rep, waiting for the delivery, and being out of cleanser for a week in the meantime. (yea, should have ordered it when I saw I was running low...) Any suggestions? Or if you've tried to find a replacement and ended up back on Arbonne I'd like to hear that too!

What can I do next?

I have a friend/client that uses Arbonne then she decides she can get something cheaper at the store she switches (cliique or some new product) then she calls me in a panic that her skin is breaking out and that her hormones are out of control and wants her products yesterday. She has been doing this for years but always comes back to Arbonne because she says there is nothing as good or any better than Arbonne. Once I started using it I won't evern try anything else. I always keep an extra of the products we use on hand when I open that one I order a new one. I am wondering if your consultant told you about the discount membership (Preferred client discount) that might change your mind about trying to find something else. If Arbonne doesn't have it I don't use it for myself or my family. The product I started out with was the Balancing Cream my migraines went away and have never came back I have been using it for 9 years and I too am told all the time I look like my daughters sister. Once I saw results I signed up to get a discount and the next thing I knew people were ordering and I was earning money to purchase my products. I also keep track of when my clients products will run out and keep them on hand for them. I use the RE9 Advanced Products and they last me at least 9 months. You get what you pay for.

I don't know what Arbonne is so I can't answer to that.

I am an avid Clinique user and have been since I was 11. People can't believe I am 49, I pass for early 30's.

It isn't cheap... but it lasts at last 6 months for me.

I use... laser focus $49, Youth Surge Repairwear day and night about $40 each, Repairwear intensive eye creme about $40

It is worth the money to me. The consultants will give you about a week's worth to try it and see if you like it.

Thanks for posting this question as I'm in your same boat and have been wondering the same thing. I was an Arbonne rep. in the early 80's (home sales is not my thing). I've used it on and off ever since. I've tried other products but they just don't work for my skin. I'm hoping with the economy the way it is Arbonne will bring back the Intelligence line. I can't afford Re9 no matter how wonderful it is. Right now I buy my Arbonne on eBay. That's the only way I can justify the cost. Unfortunately, the products avaialbe in the Intelligence line are becoming scarce. I'll be watching your post to see what other Arbonne users suggest.

I use cell labs. It's the same as 3 labs that they sell in saks 5th ave. but a fraction of the price. I am not familiar with Arbonne's pricing so I'm not sure of the price difference. You still need to order online but it's worth it.
