Arbonne FC5 and Baby Care Product Review

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

When you first came across my blog and glanced over to the right to read the little snippet about yours truly, you probably had to do a double-take. It says I'm a 32-year-young kid-at-heart but you're probably thinking I don't look a day over 20. Am I right? Well, if you had asked me a couple of months ago, I would have agreed with you. But having suffered several colds and flu bugs these last few months, on top of the stresses of work, home life and worrying about my daughter's first ever surgery, the mirror is finally reflecting those much-dreaded wrinkles and blemishes. I think I even noticed a grey hair or two.

Not having felt particularly pampered this past Mother's Day, it's nice knowing that I have a mini supply of some luxurious facial care products by Arbonne to turn to in my battle against the effects of aging. Included in my samples kit was the following FC5 Swiss products, which are exclusive to Arbonne:

Hydrating Cleanser + Freshener
with fresh strawberry cell extracts and Moisture Fresh Complex

Nurturing Day Lotion with SPF 20
with moisturizing fresh kiwi extracts and Moisture Fresh Complex

Moisturizing Night Crème
with fresh mango cell extracts and Moisture Fresh Complex

Hydrating Eye Crème
with fresh kiwi cell extracts and Moisture Fresh Complex

Of all these fantastic products, I love the Hydrating Eye Crème the best. Having had dark circles under my eyes since who knows when, I was really astonished to notice the circles were significantly lighter after only two applications. I also appreciate that it doesn't have any strong smells to it. Reading the ingredients label, I noticed that it contains extracts from some of Mother Nature's finest: cucumber, clover, grapefruit, sandalwood, mandarin orange, bergamot, lime, ginger and lemon, to name a few.

The other product that I really enjoyed was the Hydrating Cleanser. I tend to have somewhat oily skin and I have been breaking out a lot lately, so it was nice to have this cleanser on hand. I was pleasantly surprised at how luscious and creamy it felt. It almost felt like a lotion. After rinsing with lukewarm water, my skin felt pleasantly refreshed. My skin didn't feel dried out, as I sometimes experience with other facial cleansers, and I love how it's also suitable for all skin types. With 100% natural fragrance and fresh cell phytonutrients to help maintain radiance and hydration, how can you go wrong?

Arbonne's FC5 products are great and I love using them, but that's not what won me over. To my surprise, Arbonne has a line of baby care products called ABC, Arbonne Baby Care. How apropos! Included in my sample kit was the following:

Hair and Body Wash

Body Lotion

Body Oil

Herbal Diaper Rash Cream

Sunscreen SPF 30+

Of these products, my favourites would be the hair and body wash and the herbal diaper cream, which really came in handy. They are very gentle on the skin and are pediatrician and dermatologist tested. Aside from it being non-sensitizing, non-irritating and hypoallergenic, it is also certified Vegan and, my favourite, formulated without dyes or chemical fragrances. And, all ABC products are formulated for babies, children and even adults! Love it!
