I have always looked after my skin and from quite a young age, I have had a good skincare routine going. The most important thing for me is always taking my make up off and I literally don’t think I have ever slept in my make up! Since I turned 30 a couple of years ago, I have become even more aware of how important skin care is and I have also been thinking about anti-aging too! I’m really lucky that I seem to have been blessed with good genes and both my parents and grandparents definitely don’t look their ages so I’m hoping as I get older, I will be the same! That being said, I would love to look as young as possible for as long as possible!
I was recently asked to take a look at a range of products I haven’t actually heard of before, Arbonne although I have been told, the X-Factor team use the make up range! Arbonne has been around for about 35 years and their main aim is to improve people’s skin care using pure, botanically based ingredients. They use Independent consultants who work from home very much like Avon or Body Shop At Home (who I currently use!) so you can get that individual service from them.
I was given the RE9 Advanced Anti-Ageing skincare range and it is described as Arbonne’s No1 line. The set comprises of 7 different elements which can be used for a day and night routine.
Skincare Routine – Daytime
For my day routine, I use the Smoothing Facial Cleanser first, the Regenerating Toner, then the Corrective Eye Cream and finish with the Restorative Day crème. If I know it will be a ‘heavy’ make up day, then I will finish with the Extra Moisture Restorative Cream. It is worth noting that the Day creams all have SPF 20 which is a really important thing for me! I always make sure that my moisturisers have an SPF in and also my foundations too as the sun can cause so much skin damage (even in the UK!).
The Smoothing Facial Cleanser creates a light foam to wash away impurities and make up while refreshing and hydrating. The Regenerating Toner helps minimise pores after the cleansing process and the Corrective Eye Cream lifts the skin along the delicate eye area making you look more awake! The Restorative Day Crème and Extra Moisture Restorative cream finish off your routine by protecting your skin from UVA/UVB rays and moisturising your skin.
Skincare Routine – Nighttime
For my night-time routine (I’m not so good at this all the time and sometimes resort to a face wipe!) but most of the time I use the Cleanser, the Regenerating Toner, the Intensive Renewal Serum and finish with the Night Repair Cream.
The Intensive Renewal Serum helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and works to hold in skins moisture. Finally, the Night Repair Cream replenishes moisture and helps reduce the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Sometimes I feel there is too much on my skin however most days I don’t wear makeup, so my skin care routine needs to be really good as it is not only my base but is exposed to the UK elements too! I really enjoyed using the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Anti-Ageing Skincare range over the last few weeks and I would definitely recommend it for those who need to get a good skin care routine going! I love the fact the range works so well together, and all of the products feel really high-end and worth the money! Each product works well on its own but is far more affective all working together.
