Review: Arbonne #2

Saturday, April 26, 2014
I received some items from Arbonne a few weeks ago and I have already published one blog post reviewing the first set of items I received, click here, to check it out. This post is all about the skincare samples I received. Honesty as always - to read my disclaimer, click here

1. *Arbonne Intelligence Genius Nightly Resurfacing Pads (£84, 60 pads): I have approx. 8 pads as a sample and I have been using them nightly on and off for a while. I only use them on my chin and jaw as that is where my skin is not sensitive at all. I don't really want to use them all over my face. The pads are very moist and the feel a little rough on the skin, in my opinion. When I have used one pad it leaves my skin feeling greasy so I have to use my makeup remover afterwards or a toner. I think they leave my skin very smooth, moisturised and not stripped at all! Due to the greasiness and price I am giving this product ★★★☆☆, 3/5. 

2. *Arbonne Eye Makeup Remover (£14, 109ml): I adore my bioderma for removing all of my makeup but I have been using this just on my eyes. I wear waterproof mascara and shadow every time I wear a full face of makeup so any remover has to be pretty strong stuff! I find this eye makeup remover a little rough on my eyes, it doesn't feel gentle like the Bioderma micelle solution. However it doesn't sting my eyes, it doesn't feel greasy and it removes makeup quite well. ★★★☆☆, 3/5. 

3. *Arbonne Fortifying Shampoo (£25, 237ml): I only managed to get one use out of this sample as my hair is fairly long and thick. It did smell really nice and it lathered well. It was a nice shampoo overall but I feel like I cannot give an in depth review from just one use. but as a first impressions I would give it - ★★★★☆, 4/5.

4. *Arbonne Calm Gentle Daily Cleanser (£17, 148ml): As I do have sensitive skin I have to be careful with cleansers - my favourite all time cleanser is the REN hydracalm cleaning gel (which I have repurchased) and this Arbonne cleanser is very similar. It is sulphate free! This cleanser feels very gentle on the skin, it doesn't strip the skin and I haven't had any negative reaction - I am very impressed with this cleanser. I would be more than happy to purchase this cleanser myself. ★★★★★, 5/5.

5. *Arbonne Purifying FC5 Cleanser and Toner (£20, 118ml): This cleanser is not from the Calm range but I tried it any way and I am pleasantly surprised. The scent is really nice, it smells citrusy. The cleanser lathers well, it doesn't irritate my skin at all and it washes off easily. It leaves my skin feeling super clean! ★★★★★, 5/5.

There are my thoughts on some of the skincare products from Arbonne, a bit of a mixed bag but I am very impressed with both cleansers! I definitely want to try more from the Calm skincare range! 

Have you tried Arbonne products before?

    1. It is difficult finding shades onlin but blogs usually have swatches :) and it helps that I am always the lightest shade in all foundations x
