reveal a healthy, youthful looking skin with Arbonne

 

The new RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Mask from Arbonne is a powerful facemask made with botanical exfoliants that reveals healthy, youthful looking skin. This mask is suitable for all skin types and checks off every box for what you would want in a mask: gently removes dead skin cells, visibly improves the appearance of skin tone and texture, and unclogs- and minimizes the look of pores. Pineapple and papaya extracts smooth and soften the skin, algae extract helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and sustainable orange stem cells help improve the appearance of skins radiance, elasticity and firmness.

The mask is very simple to use and easy to remove. The product looks and feels like a face cream. Apply a layer of the mask over your face, avoiding the eye area, and leave on for 5-7 min (I left it on for a few min longer to give it an extra boost). The easier it is to use, the more likely I am to actually use it, so I am a big fan of masks that do not take 30+ min to use or create a big mess in taking it off (i.e. clay masks). My cheeks were a bit flush right after I washed the mask off, which the directions say to expect, and I have very sensitive skin so would recommend using it only once a week to those that do too. The first time I used this mask, I could see results right away. My skin felt smoother, clearer, and had a healthy glow to it.

Body Glide will correct your fashion discomfort issues

I had no idea how much I would use Body Glide- Anti Chafe & Moisturizing bar until I tried it out. I had never used one before, so I didn’t think I’d have much use for it. All the blisters from painful shoes, tight dress straps that rub in the wrong spot, and clingy shorts, were all filed under “style over comfort,” and accepted for it. Body Glide stops these problems before they start. The product is similar in consistency to a solid deodorant stick that goes on completely clear and light, almost dry to the touch after, not greasy or slippery feeling. The protective barrier is moisturizing to the skin and is virtually undetectable once applied (so it does not give the appearance of dried glue residue that some products have).

My first use of Body Glide was with a pair of bronze peep-toe flats that I love (pictured). I have had these shoes for YEARS and worn them many times, always in hopes that they would break-in, but they’d pinch the skin below my big toe nail, eventually creating a very painful blister every time. Using Band-Aids looked junky and they always fell off after an hour or two. Breaking the shoes out again this summer, I quickly swiped the stick across the tops of my toes and popped the shoes on- the difference was night and day! Before, the shoes (which again, are flats) would hurt so much just walking around at work I’d want to take them off by noon. Now, I don’t think twice about wearing them.

This product is about as simple and easy as it gets for a fix to those fashion discomfort issues. Body Glide comes in a variety of sizes so it’s easy to have one at home, and keep a travel size in your bag. While this could work for any problem item year round, I’ve found it especially helpful for the summer with less layers between fabrics and skin, and hot and humid weather.

Karite Shea Butter is natural, sustainably sourced and has philanthropic ties…it’s a winner

Karite Shea Butter Creme Mains hand cream is an awesome new skincare brand created by three sisters from Ghana who worked to develop a hand cream that was as close to the raw, unrefined shea butter they used growing up. The cream is simple yet concentrated, so a little goes a long way, and it’s incredibly soothing for any dry skin or cuticles. Made with a unique blend of palm and organic coconut oil, and shea butter, it is hypo-allergenic, anti-aging, and contains vitamins A and E to help restore skin nourishment and moisture. I love how rich the formula is while also feeling light and non-greasy once it is rubbed in- and it smells amazing.

With organic and sustainably sourced ingredients from Ghana, this product supports the livelihood of rural African women and their communities. Besides just finding a product I like that has good results, finding a product that is natural and sustainably sourced and that has philanthropic ties is a double win.
