In about 9 hours, my 500 posts/Two Year Blog-o-versary giveaway #1 ends and I want to make absolutely sure that every single one of my followers has a chance to enter, hence this reminder post. Click here to enter...
Some of you may be wondering what I would buy if I had a $50 gift certificate to Arbonne, after all, I am a consultant and have had the pleasure of trying and/or owning most of the items you see on the website.
For those of you still on the fence about what you would buy and that is why you haven't entered the giveaway yet, here are my favorites for around $50...
The eye liner in olive is my go to color when I want to wear something on my eyelids but don't want to spend hours making my eye makeup perfect. The formula glides on super-easy (no tugging with this liner--cough, cough, other brands I have tried in the past that I won't mention for fear of them getting mad at me...). The olive works well with my green-blue eye color, but the liner also comes in black, purple, brown, etc.
Turns out that the licorice root is the answer for us rosacea sufferers. Dr. Oz profiled rosacea a few weeks ago on his show and said that licorice root was a great way of calming the skin down during a flare-up. Since this serum has a high concentration of the licorice root, I am not surprised that my skin is looking and acting better!
It also has the added benefit of lightening sun spots. But I will get into that more with product #12 of my favorites.
This is not a product to be used while nursing, pregnant, or under the weather, so bear that in mind! :)
Here is one story: One of the friends I know who has used it, conjoined it with a 30 day Detox plan (of which I can get anyone copies), and lost 20 pounds of postpartum weight. As someone who knows how hard it is to lose "baby" weight, I applaud her and plan on trying this the next time I have had another child. NOTE: The detox plan is RIGID, very whole-foods oriented, and nearly vegetarian. So if you are big fan of meat and potatoes and want to lose weight but are not prepared to go down the to the other side, so to speak, this is not the plan for you!!!
Sometimes I will even take out my blender, put in the mix and water, and a half a banana, mix, mix, mix, and have a VERY tasty dessert.
All for 180 calories (breakfast version) and 225 calories (dessert version).
It has the same active ingredients as you find in all those yogurts and yogurt shakes that are on the market nowadays, but no added sugars, calories, and these are gluten-free, which is fab for those who suffer from gluten intolerance.
The Revelage hand therapy is great for outdoors, it protects, moisturizes, and has an SPF. I need the SPF, especially, because for years, I forgot to apply SPF to my hands and now I have sunspots, which are like freckles, but not as cute (sad face). Now I am religious with the SPF, and I appreciate the fact that the ingredients in the therapy reduce the pigmentation of the sunspots. (Really! I have used this Revelage line for over two years and I definitely have seen a reduction in the intensity of the color of the spots!)
I hope that this look at my twelve favorites around a total of $50 have helped you decide what you would do if you won my giveaway. :)
