For the entire re9 line. I had the worst reaction! I noticed a little redness the first day but just thought it was from scrubbing. On the second day, my face was on fire and extremely dry my lower eyelids got all red and swollen and my eyes were runny the entire day and would not stop. Needless to day i did not use it that night. Today is the third day since I used it my face is burning still extremely dry and sore to the touch. I couldn't even put makeup on for work as i didn't want to touch my face. I was recommended to try diaper rash cream on my face overnight and it should help it felt refreshing instantly. I will say though that before my face reacted so badly that it felt amazingly smooth and soft. I was falling in love with it until i couldn't touch my face anymore.

I have gone to two facial parties and of course I was skeptical. I heard of these kinds of people and these kinds of products and was like sure they are fantastic but I am a picky person, but no. Even after two intense facials I JUST WANT MORE. Before trying out the products, I was experiencing acne like how I did back in high school...no bueno! I tried the Clinique acne solutions and that dried my face out and it just felt harsh, then I tried the facial and all the hormonal acne that I tried for weeks to get rid of came to the surface and are healing now! There is this products that is similar to a chemical peel but without the peel aftermath and I am in love, it is great for someone like me who has previous scars that flare up when I get episodes! Overall I am happy but I still want to keep doing these facials in order to see what else these products + my skin are capable of doing. But like I said, only two facials and my skin looks brighter, cleaner, and my acne is going away! I can't wait for my next facial party!!

I have been struggling with my sensitive combination skin for years. I have bought so many different products but nothing would ever work quite right - either my skin was too oily, too irritated or too dehydrated looking. I just found that in general my skin looked dull and lifeless.
I'm 28, and always was under the impression that the re9 line was for a slightly more mature woman, say 40+. I also thought the line was way too expensive and the price would never be justifiable by the results. BOY, was I wrong about both! My mom has select products and had a bunch of samples after going to an Arbonne party. She really likes the line, so I decided to try it out. My first purchase was only for a couple of the products, but after a while I decided to bite the bullet and get them all. At $389 + tax + shipping, it's pretty steep for my budget.
I must say, my skin has never looked or felt better. I am constantly being complimented and that my skin is "absolutely glowing". The products themselves smell delicious, and I always look forward to my morning and nighttime regime.
Despite the price, I will continue to buy Arbonne re9 as long as it continues to deliver these amazing results. It is absolutely worth every dime. ARBONNE - DO NOT REFORMULATE!!!!
Although I love all of the products, my favourite products are the night cream, followed closely by the eye cream and restorative day moisturizer. If you can't afford the entire line, get those and you'll see a big difference. The night cream *literally* transforms your skin over night. A true miracle cream.

My S/O's Mother is an Arbonne rep, and I've been receiving various different products for a few years now. While I do feel Arbonne is geared towards a more mature age bracket, I do enjoy the makeup and body care products I've obtained. I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase these products on my own.

I should have written this review long ago, I received a gift from a friend who was selling Arbonne. It was a whole basket of different products. I broke out all over my entire body from these products. My arms, legs, face, back, you name it. I will NEVER try another Arbonne product again. I know many brands claim they are all natural and good for you. Well I am here to say that is not always entirely true. After it happened to me, My Mom told me the same thing happened to her at a Arbonne party at someone's house on her face. Well we do have the same skin, but sheesh...never again.

I have loved almost all of the Arbonne products I've tried, but this review is for the RE9 skincare line, which consists of a cleanser, toner, serum, day cream, night cream, and eye cream. I have acne-prone combo dry/oily skin, and while the RE9 line hasn't eliminated my breakouts, I don't believe it exacerbates them either. However, the overall look and tone of my skin is better than it has EVER been. It did take a few months, but now my tone is much more even, I have less oil in the oily spots and fewer flaky, dry spots, and I have a dewy, healthy glow to my skin.
The cleanser is probably the best cleanser I've ever used. It smells wonderful, lathers well, and cleanses thoroughly without being harsh. The day cream is SPF 20 and is also one of the best, if not THE best, day creams with SPF I've ever used. The night cream is decadent. All of the products smell nice and are free of many of the more harmful chemicals out there.
I'm not a fan of the packaging. The bottles are bulky and the lids always crack and then no longer stay on. Also, you can't tell how much product you have left, but since I've used this line for several months, I've got a pretty good idea of how long each product will last and when I need to re-order.
The line is very pricey, but if you do the RSVP and get 50% off, it's not too bad. I think I love it enough that I would pay full price if I had to.
Overall, I HIGHLY recommend the RE9 line.

The Arbonne foundation is the best I have every used! It is very light-weight, goes on like melted butter! It has great staying power, washes off wi soap and water. It automatically disappears onto your skin, blending wiithin several shades. I have freckles and like them to show, but need a foundation that has good coverage. I use a 10N.
This foundation is expensive- about 55$ a bottle, but it has a pump so that it won't get contaminated and it lasts me about 6 months.
The only negative thing I have to say, is you have to purchase this from an Arbonne Consultant. But you can do that online, just Google it.

blah, blah and more blah!
The "theory" sounds great, right? Natural, smells nice, but I had the WORST reaction to this stuff. Within an hour or two my skin feels like it's on fire, is bright red, and itchy.
I tried it about 4 years ago, and then I decided to try it ONE more time. BAD idea, same reaction! Blah!
Also, who has time to wait for it to come in the mail! Huge con!

I love all of the products I have tried from Arbonne. Their new FC5 line is great! they have a really great eye cream! and their Sea Source Mud Mask is my holy grail skincare item! It is the only product I have ever used that will reduce acne and calm my skin! I use it on my whole face once a week and on problem areas whenever one comes around. Their liquid foundation is great, and they have some of the intelligence line back in! I could not live without Arbonnes products!

I am here to give my honest opinion about the Re9 skincare line. I tried this product about 5 years ago and didn't see any miracles so I wasn't too interested when my friend started selling it. To my surprise she sent me the entire skincare line and I used it for almost a week, and whoa!!!! My hormonal acne that was getting really troublesome, despite many trips to my esthetician, started to clear up! I am ecstatic to wake up and see clearer skin for once. I have tried many products on my skin and have paid over $100 for just one moisturizer so I feel the products are really not way overpriced. To feel good about my skin is worth all of the money in the world IMO.

First, let me assure you this line is vegan, I am a vegan and did do research. No animal products or byproducts are used. As for the list of ingredients in the post below, I will say that there are no parabens in the products. Maybe there were at an earlier time. I think these products are the best I have ever used. A little pricey, but I am middle aged and they are cheap compared to the things some of my friends use.

First let me start off by saying I really enjoyed Arbonne. I had great results with most of their products.
Usually I research anything and everything I put on my body. However, I did not with Arbonne. I got sucked into the hype and went in full throttle. The sales pitch sounded great, "pure, safe, and beneficial." When the host said, "Vegan" I was all ears. True the products are mostly Vegan and that is supported by the Vegan society, but they are not "pure and safe" as claimed.
I first become suspicious when some of my products I had bought did not come with a full list of ingredients or the Vegan stamp. I called around asking questions and was assured that it was Vegan and I could go ask the Vegan Society. OK, that's great, but what about the ingredients? Why can't I have a full description? I can't recall verbatim what was said, but it came down to this: We guarantee our products and stand behind them 100%. If you have any more questions see your consultant. Hmmm, that sounds odd. So I ask my consultant, which hardly knows anything about the product she is endorsing. (I won't rant about that right now.)
Anyway I got online and searched. I found some very helpful sites that actually listed the ingredients. I also found other people that were suspicious of their claims. Well, I'm glad I did my research.
Below I provide a list of some of their ingredients I find concerning and not pure or safe. Also, some of these ingredients have shown to be skin irritants.
ammonium lauryl sulfate
aluminum starch octenylsuccinate
sodium lauryl sulfate
I'm sure there are more, but I stopped at this. There is also a possibility that they've changed some, but that does not change the fact that they are using false advertising to sale their products. (and the fear strategy.) I know a lot of cosmetic products have some bad ingredient, but I was trying to move away from that. I now use mostly stuff from home. It's cheaper, fresher and honestly, I get much better results.

I began using the Intelligence skin care line a year ago and immediately noticed a difference in the way that my skin looked and the way it felt. The Intelligence line was discontinued several months ago and the FC5 line was introduced and I love it ten times more than I did the Intelligence. It has fresh fruit cells in it, smells absolutely wonderful and makes my skin feel even better. The good thing is that they combined Step 1 & 2 of the Intelligence line into one FC5 product and it's the same price. the FC5 products also have a cooling effect as soon as it touches your skin.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I have used the Intelligence skin care line for 3 years and could not believe the difference in the way my skin looked and felt within a week. I was unsure about the price like some people but felt that it was worth it because of the products not having chemicals, mineral oils, animal byproducts, etc in them. Arbonne recently discontinued their Intelligence line and came up with a new line called FC5 and it is even BETTER than the Intelligence line and that's hard to imagine! I would be lost without these products! And because they are so concentrated only a little bit of each item has to be used each time so they last I would say three times as long as regular products.

It's definitely in the investment category price wise, but well worth it when compared to retail products of the same quality.
I've been using Arbonne products since I was 12 (my mom has been involved with the company for many years), and through the years, I have to say my favorite thing to do is work a la cart. I love the bio-hydria eye creme, RE9 night/day moisturizers, Intelligence exfoliating masque, and the oil free compact-- for those rough days.
The RE9 masques and scrubs are fantastic too.
Also, I cannot say enough about their Aromatherapy. I am a massage therapist, and only use their oil. Fantastic feel and glide, not sticky, and zero residue. Pricey though-- I wish they offered a professional size!!

I am currently trying out the RE-9 set to see how it does etc. and so far no break outs, my skin feels nice - overall no complaints but nothing magical! I am not sure I am bought. I will be returning the kit soon and still I am torn....not sure if I want to spend my hard earned money on the RE-9 yet or not!?!? So many mixed reviews! : (
Also...it is unfortunate that people are getting less experienced consultants out there for their education on the overall line. Being that I was once a Clinique gal. It may indeed make the line look worse than it actually is. : (
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I love Arbonne products! I have always had problem skin and the RE 9 line is the only thing that works for me. I also started using the FC5 line recently b/c it smells so good. I though about being a Consultant, but then backed out because I was being harassed so bad by Arbonne Consultants. I did not want people to start avoiding me like I avoid them! But I do love the skin care products and will continue to buy them. Also, their make-up primer is the best I have ever experienced. That says a lot b/c I am a total make-up junkie. I think the price of the make-up is reasonable compared to other high-end brands.

I was very skeptical about this line because it was very expensive and I don't like products that cost a fortune because most of the time it's a waste of money. I tried out the line at a party and really liked it so I asked what the cheapest way to get the skin care would be - she said if i signed up to be a consultant I would get $700 worth of stuff for $350, so I signed up haha. I bought a TON of stuff(obviously)- since this thread is only about the face skincare I'll just discuss that.
One of the bottles had opened while shipping and Arbonne sent me a new bottle of that, a bottle of everything it spilled onto and something extra. They were so nice about it. I bought the entire Re9 (or whatever its called) line and after about 2 months my skin was the clearest it had ever been. I was using ONLY Arbonne so I knew that had to be why.
I've been out of the washes and things for about a year now and want to purchase more because my skin is breaking out but they have sent me an email about getting $300 worth of stuff for $150 and I'm just going to wait for another one.
I would say if you've tried everything else and you want clear perfect skin no matter the cost - that you deffinately get Arbonne products.

I was introduced to Arbonne just over two years ago and was extremely skeptical. After 4 months of saying no to my friend, I finally decided to try the NutriminC RE9 line. I actually broke out the first week I used it but was told that I probably wasn't using good quality products before, and now the Arbonne products are pulling the impurities out of my face! Sounds gross...but being this was a friend of mine, I trusted her and decided to continue use. After another week, my skin cleared up and my skin has never looked better. I am now not only hooked on the RE9 line, but the rest of their products as well. I get more compliments now than I ever have. Arbonne gets two thumbs up from me!!

I went to my first (and last) Arbonne party about 6 months ago. Now, this was a makeup party, but she did talk a little about the skin care line.
I am pretty knowledgeable about make-up, and what some would call a MU snob. I thought the MU sucked. I felt bad, so I bought a plumper and a brow wax thing. I didn't use them, and I have no idea where they are, and I don't care or miss them.
I got a bunch of pressure for the skin care for my husband. One of the other party guests told the rep my husband had skin issues, so of course, this was like blood in the water for her. My husband doesn't have skin issues, he has psoriasis! He is constantly under the care of a physician. She wouldn't let it go! Insisted that I try all this stuff for him even after I told her his skin care was prescription. She tried to convince me she knew more than my husband's doctor.
I took her samples and used them myself. It made my skin burn something fierce! And, I got really dry, red and irritated.
The sales lady/rep was nice enough. I don't begrudge her trying to get me to buy her products. She is in the sales business, so whatever. I just think this line sucks. Oh, and if you go to cosmeticdatabase.com, their stuff isn't any better for you than anything else.
