has anyone used Arbonne line?

I just came from a presentation on Arbonne skin care products. They also have a makeup line, baby care line, and a shampoo & conditioner. Has anyone used either of these and can tell me if it's worth the money. I got samples of the baby line, but the ingredients are full of chemicals (not as natural as was advertised). The before & after pics that were passed around were amazing though.

    years ago I tried the nutriminC eye cream...I didn't dislike it, but it didn't really do anything any ol' cream wouldn't do

    I got a hand cream in a gift bag from a vendor once. It was tummy smelling and it definitely was a good hand cream. Didn't leave me feeling greasy. But now that I'm taking better care of my hair, I'd rather use all natural oils and butters to moisturize. But I did like it.

    Their candles smell delcious and are long lasting. I would repurchase.

    I have samples of their skincare but haven't tried it. When I get around to it, will report a review.

    I have tried this stuff. A friend of mine thought I would like it and sent a representive over to my house. She had such beautiful skin so I thought ok I need to try this. It takes so long to do all the steps and after the 5 days I had to try it my face itched like crazy. So, I was kind of happy that it didn't work because it was so expensive and if it worked I would have bought it.

    I tried a few Arbonne products maybe like 4 or 5 years ago. They were OK, but didn't really do anything that special for my skin. Since then I've learned to use more "active" products with less fillers & the right concentrations of ingredients. Also have been taking Redcatwaves advice (thanks!) and now my skin is looking great!:blob2:

    i promised a co-worker i'd go to a presentation at her place on this coming Wednesday because her daughter-in-law is selling it. it doesn't sound promising based on the last two posts.

    but i'm looking at it as research...

    Well I didn't have any type of reaction like tk1970 did, but I had more of a "no reaction" I guess! The products felt nice & smelled nice, but I just didn't see any improvement in my skin (which is super oily!). I don't even remember what line I used at this point, but I know there was a cleanser & toner in one, an oil absorbing lotion for the day (which I used at night too), and a scrub that I used like 2X a week (what was I thinking?) LOL! :shock:

    I stopped using them because it was getting expensive, and I felt like I could get the same results with a drug store brand. Maybe you could just buy a body product or something?

    Nice enough but certainly not worth the money in my opinion. I like almost everythng I've tried from PSF though. The only thing I haven't really liked is the castile cleanser...I prefer the orange one from Garden of Wisdom.

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Thanks all! Since my original post, I've been using the acne line on & off. It has salicylic acid and is drying so I alternate it with my other products. I really haven't noticed a difference either with the skin vare products.

    I do love the baby line, especially the baby oil. It's really gotten rid of my little girl's dry excema patches. There's a sunscreen that's gentle and doesn't cause her to react but it only has an SPF of 30, and I feel babies need a stronger sunscreen.

    I like California Baby baby wash and lotion, but l still haven't found anything comparable to the Arbonne baby oil. I'd like to find something that I like just as well that I don't have to order.
