The weather in New York City is not exactly what you would call “typical” for this year. We have had gorgeous warm days and some cold nights. The mercurial weather can make your skin just as confused as the rest of us about this weather.
I always love trying new products, and I recently had the opportunity to discover the brand Arbonne. Thanks to my friend Nora who is a fabulous Arbonne consultant, I was able to spend some quality time with these amazing products. Arbonne is a Swiss brand that is vegan, Cruelty Free, Paraben free, and Mineral Oil free. The company has been creating amazing botanical based products for over thirty years that range from anti-aging skincare to baby care to haircare to supplements with four hundred products across the board in the line. I wanted to write about everything but I decided to narrow this post down to the products that I really loved the most and will help your skin survive this winter season and beyond.
1. RE9 Advanced Overnight Hydration Mask
My skin is very dry this time of year and this mask made a huge difference in my battle against dehydration. This is a limited edition product so I suggest you order it a.s.a.p! After cleansing and exfoliating, I applied this moisturizing mask and went to bed. I woke with my skin feeling very soft and supple. I also loved the fresh glowy look my skin had. Shea Butter, Aloe, and Mango Seed Butter give oodles of moisture without feeling too heavy or greasy. The product melts right into the skin.
2. Smoothing Facial Cleanser
I used this creamy cleanser with my Clarisonic Face Brush and my face felt clean without being stripped of essential moisture and it gently removes makeup. It also contains Orange Peel Oil which is one of my favorite ingredients because it is anti-inflammatory and smells awesome!
3. Hydrating Body Lotion
My skin does not like winter at all! I have eczema so I have always have to use a very rich body product. This lotion is definitely going to be part of my rotating eczema-arsenal. It smells amazing, absorbs quickly, and kept my skin super soft.
4. Intensive Renewal Serum
Of course if I try a new brand I have to check out their anti-aging products. The Intensive Renewal Serum is a concentrated blend of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy that is blended with effective botanicals which helps your skin retain moisture, soften the appearance of fine lines, and also addresses firming. I loved that my skin was smoother and brighter over time. I also loved using this on my neck and decollate. This product is used morning and evening under your moisturizer.
I hope you have a chance to check out all these wonderful products. I found these lovely images online, and all you have to do is click on each product name to learn more and maybe give yourself the gift of gorgeous happy skin!
