Just like the skin care line, I was not a huge fan of the Intelligence products including the cleansing gel. It was just okay - it didn't really have a smell and that is something that I like. The new FC5 body wash is WONDERFUL - it has real strawberry cells in it(and smells like it!) and lathers really good and all you need is a small drop so the bottle lasts a really long time.
I switch between the Mineral Powder and the Foundation and absolutely love both! I wear one shade during the spring and summer and then another shade during the fall and winter. I put it on one time before going to work and it is still looking good when I get off work 9 hours later! It goes on very smooth and evenly and I have sensitive skin and have never had a problem with it.
Primer/ Corrector -Arbonne - Virtual Illusion Makeup Primer

A must have for any makeup kit! It helps your makeup stay on longer, covers your pores and wrinkles and more! When you put it on your face becomes instantly silky (and your fingers too!) and is the best feeling! I have sensitive skin and I have never had a problem with it.
Skincare - Face -Arbonne - NutriminC RE9 Entire line [DISCONTINUED]

I personally do not use the RE9 line but my mom does and she absolutely loves it. It has made her skin very clear and has reduced the appearance of wrinkles, "frown lines", sun spots, etc. She has been using it for over a year and could not go a day without it! Her favorite 3 products are the wash, serum and day cream. And only a little bit has to be used at a time so it lasts much longer than what you would buy elsewhere.
This is an Arbonne must have! I personally love all of the Sea Salt Scrubs but the Awaken and Unwind are by far my favorites. There is nothing like getting out of the shower and being silky smooth! It's also great to use on your hands for a little manicure and also on the feet and heels!
I was not a huge fan of the Intelligence Hand Cream but the new FC5 Hydrating Body Lotion(w/ fresh pumpking cells) and Moisturizing Hand Cream(w/ fresh kiwi cells) are wonderful! The smell is fruity and very light and not thick and heavy. You only need a small amount of each whether for both hands or your legs. The FC5 lotions are great!
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.
