Healthy Habits: Natural Skin Care by Arbonne

The average woman comes in contact with hundreds of chemicals before breakfast.  Between shampoo, lotions and makeup we slather, primp and downright obsess over product to make us look and feel our best.  But did you know that our skin directly absorbs chemicals into our bloodstream?  The advantages of knowing what's in your beauty routine are boundless.

Over the years I've been better at reading labels and tried a few different product lines, but only recently did I find a brand that made me want to sit down and write this post.

About 2 months ago, I was invited to an Arbonne spa party and was introduced to a line of products that spoke my language.  Pure, safe and beneficial is the modo for their personal care and wellness products that are all botanically-based.  But I'm more excited about what's not in them than what is.

Arbonne personal care products are formulated without:
  • • Animal products or animal by-products
  • • Parabens
  • • Formaldehyde-donating preservatives
  • • Petroleum-based ingredients
    • • Benzene
    • • Mineral Oil
    • • Petrolatum
    • • Phthalates
    • • Toluene
  • • PABA
So I bought a few products {the instant lift and the eye cream} and have been using them religiously.  I can honestly say that this is the most enthusiastic I've ever been about skincare.  I love the smell and feel of the products, but more importantly I love the results.  

While there are many other great natural skincare lines out there, this one has stood out to me above the rest. Arbonne also has a natural cosmetics line I can't wait to try. 

I'm excited to be planning a spa party for my friends; perhaps you've been to one too? I would love to know what your experience has been.
