Pros: Scent, soft and moisturized skin, feel like I'm doing something good for myself
Cons: price, becoming a 'consultant' for $29 to get the 35% discount.
I wanted to start off by stating that I am a consultant (I paid the $29 to get the discounts and bonuses) but I don't sell the products or plan on making any money from being an Arbonne representative. I see that a few of the reviews may have been written by those selling the product. I'm actually a little guarded about the marketing plan. ANYWAY, I hope my review will be impartial because of this.
I'm in my early 30's, living in a sunny area, no signs of aging....yet. I have noticed that my skin has changed over the past few years. I decided to give this line a try as a preventative measure. I was also looking for a new skincare regimen and was willing to spend a little extra money on finding and using a product that works for me.
The product comes in a slender orange cylinder pump -- 3.15 fl.oz. The pre-measured pump dispenses a small amount -- about the size of a pea -- of product. At first I thought it wasn't going to be enough but I was told that it was fine -- and it was just the right amount. The product does have a nice orange scent and it doesn't linger. It rinses off easily.
I noticed a difference in my skin after the first use. I used this in conjunction with the other NutriMinC RE9 anti-aging products in the set. My nose usually gets dry and flaky after washing. Moisturizer doesn't hydrate it. My nose was not flaky after the first time I used it and my skin felt soft, smooth and hydrated.
Nothing major, but I didn't like how it didn't completely take off my waterproof mascara. Since I wash my face at night and again in the morning, my mascara would be gone anyway by the time I put my makeup on. Also, my face got a little oily for the first few days of using it. It's not so oily anymore. I think it takes a few days for skin to get used to it.
I should note again that I bought this product in a set so I have been using it with other products with pretty good results:
-REstoring Mist Balancing Toner
-REactivating Facial Serum Day & Night
-REpair Corrective Eye Creme
-REality SPF 8 Day Creme
-REcover Night Creme
-NutriMinC RE9 REversing Gelee Transforming Lift
I paid $194.03 for 7 products (retail $298.50).
I enjoy using this product. I feel like I'm doing something good for my skin.
