Disclaimer: I work for Arbonne but I will be 100% honest about my experience and opinion as some products I love and other don’t work for me. This line was NOT sent to me to be reviewed, I bought it.
Lets get started on another post for our Pretty Lovely Skincare Series! By the way — are you enjoying this series? Let us know!
Arbonne RE9 Advanced
This line is our Anti-Aging line, in fact it is the #1 Anti-aging line for results on the market. YUP you read right, #1 — we beat out all the department store brands and all the other MLM brands. And I can personally say my skin was firmer after 24 hours — I was stunned. But don’t be intimidated by the word “anti-aging” focus more on “high antioxidant” which is great for anyone in their 20’s and onward! It helps to repair, prevent and regenerate from environmental damage!
RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser
This stuff smells good, like oranges and citrus, very refreshing. It removes my make-up no problem — but I’m careful not to get it into my eyes. The pump produces too much for my face so I use half a pump. I like that it doesn’t make my face feel insanely dry after like some cleansers might — its nice and moisturizing. My skin always feel soft and supple after, just as promised. Its got that milky creamy texture that I really enjoy when cleaning my face. Definitely one of my favourites.
RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner
This toner has the same refreshing citrus smell. Its pH balanced which means it keeps your Acid Mantle in place — if you use a product that isn’t the correct pH it will strip your face and cause problems like dryness, oiliness and acne, etc. I noticed an improvement within the first couple of days of using this toner. My red and bumpy cheek areas started to improve and smooth out.
RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum
Again, citrus smell — OK from here on out just know the whole line smells like orange and citrus because its full of Vitamin C. This serum is collagen-supporting that firms your skin. My face felt firmer after 24 hours, it was incredible. Now because I have a baby face and don’t have fine lines I can’t vouch for the diminishing the appearance of fine lines but I can tell you that all the other consultants I work with that use this line that are older DO NOT look their age what so ever. For me I need to use two pumps of this to evenly distribute it over my whole face.
RE9 Advance Corrective Eye Crème
This stuff feels great but I’m honestly not sure what its doing for me. That being said I do not have fine line around my eyes — also these products are all preventative so if you want to get a jump start on keeping your skin looking younger this is where to look. It also reduces puffiness and diminishes dark circles — and considering I haven’t worn concealer over the last couple of days… I think its one of those sneaky ninja products that works without you fully noticing.
RE9 Advance Restorative Day Crème SPF 20
This is the product out of the bunch that I’m not a fan of. Because of the SPF it feels a bit oily or greasy on me. I’m willing to give it a few more tries but it didn’t sweep my off my feet. Having said that it does make my face feel moisturized and doesn’t make my makeup look greasy. I think its actually getting better with more uses, I felt less oily today when I used it. *It is getting better — way less oily and greasy then when I started.
RE9 Advance Night Repair Crème
One of my favourites — hands down. It feels so creamy and lovely going on its the perfect way to end your night time skincare routine. It feels amazing and it makes you feel lovely. Its super hydrating but not greasy and I always wake up looking like a million bucks. It does give my cheeks a bit of a burning feeling sometimes, but nothing I can’t handle and I certainly don’t break out from it so this sensitive skinned girl is totally cool with it.
If you don’t like the smell of citrus this probably wont be ideal for you. The first time you use it, it may sting and bring out some impurities of the skin — but that is the point because its correcting the pH balance and problem areas. Again the moisturizer can be a bit greasy but I feel like my skin is adapting to that fact. Also the price point may be a bit much for some.
