Travel Companions: Putting Arbonne's RE9 to the Test - Review

When I travel, I need beauty products that can keep up with me. Since I cannot fit my vanity of potions and lotions into my suitcase, I have to rely on a select few items that will keep me cleansed, moisturized, and looking oh-so-pretty. The brand that recently made the cut: Arbonne International, LLC (Arbonne), and its anti-aging product line, RE9 Advanced.

Although Arbonne is not organic, its tagline is “pure, safe, beneficial.” The nine major age-defying elements and botanicals are now clinically proven to begin working on your beautiful skin within 24 hours! That’s faster than seeing results from your stairmaster routine.

So I put RE9 Advanced to my traveling test and the results? Well, read on, and you be the judge!

Smoothing Facial Cleanser ($40, 3 fl. oz.)

This silky cleanser softens and renews stressed skin to promote collagen production and also delivers the requisite antioxidant protection. Every day and night, I would add a dime size amount to my Clarisonic to wash away grime and reveal a healthy complexion. Plus, the algae extract helps the skin retain moisture, and buckthorn oil provides protection from harsh, inclement weather (they also deliver a clean, fresh scent).

Regenerating Toner ($35, 1.7 fl. oz)

After I dabbed my face dry, I would spritz enough toner to dampen an organic cotton pad and gently sweep the pad across my face. The toner is crammed with antioxidants like a suitcase – this process tightened pores and revealed firmer, toned skin. It’s also rich in beta-carotene, which is responsible for the richly pigmented red color and has a variety of health benefits, including sun protection.

Restorative Day Crème SPF 20 ($50, 1 fl. oz)

I cannot live without an effective, light moisturizer, which is why on recent travels, I only used the Restorative Day Crème. Light in texture, yet strong in results, this day crème works great alone or under your Arbonne makeup. The zinc oxide provides the SPF protection we all need, and the kudzu and peptides work hand-in-hand to support collagen and provide antioxidant protection. I look younger just thinking about it!

Corrective Eye Crème ($55, 0.5 fl. oz)

Bags be gone…under your eyes, that is! I was thrilled at how a dab of this crème packed with marine lavender, alfalfa seed extract and algae extract reduced puffiness and vanished those pesky dark circles. And it never irritated my eyes, which is always good to see..I mean, hear.

Firming Body Cream ($68, 6.7 oz)

The changing temperature can do a number on skin when traveling. Luckily this cream moisturizes and promotes a firm bod, without any heavy, greasy residue left behind. Massage all over to reveal smooth, toned skin from finger to toe! And enjoy the light scent left behind from the oak kernel extract.
