Arbonne Calm Gentle Daily Moisturizer ($36.00) — A non-comedogenic day and night moisturizer which contains cucumber, mallow, licorice and Japanese green tea. It is formulated to relieve dryness, tightness while restoring the skin’s moisture levels without leaving an oily residue.
This moisturizer seeped right into my skin with no signs of irritation; any redness seemed to slowly vanish as the lightweight moisturizer calmed and soothed my skin.
Arbonne Soothing Eye Gel ($30.00) — Reduces the appearance of puffiness around the eyes and smooths the eye area. This gentle formula instantly soothes tired eyes while providing a great amount of moisture with its gel formula. I loved how small the roller ball was — I was able to get in the inner corners of my eyes with ease. It didn’t sting my allergy-sensitive eyes at all, and did reduce puffiness!
Arbonne Calm Gentle Daily Cleanser ($24.00) — This gentle, sulfate-free daily facial cleanser removes all traces of makeup, dirt and oil without over-drying your skin. It pumps out of the bottle clear and foams up nicely. My skin felt refreshed and thoroughly clean — it didn’t feel tight at all, but I still felt that I needed moisturizer afterwards.
Arbonne Calm Soothing Facial Serum ($45.00) — Calm and soothe the skin instantly with this quick-absorbing facial serum. A moisture soothing complex quickly penetrates and soothes the skin.
I felt it was a little sticky at first, but once it absorbed into my skin it looked plump, hydrated and glowy! I love how this serum makes my skin look and feel, and I especially admire how the dropper goes through a catcher to make sure not even a drop of product is wasted. A great serum for summer!
Arbonne It’s A Long Story Mascara ($36.00) The name says it all! This mascara is formulated with revolutionary polypeptides to promote the appearance of longer-looking lashes, while bamboo extract and pro-vitamins pamper and nurture for a lavish, high-gloss look.
The professional brush has a long wand with short, sturdy bristles to coat and extend every lash. Pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin C help nourish lashes, too! I couldn’t believe how long this mascara made my lashes look; they also felt very conditioned and no lashes fell out once I took off my makeup! It lasts all day and will not flake even on the hottest of days!

Hamptons Classic Palette ($85.00) — A beautiful pink and gold outlined hydrangea graces the cover of this summery eye and cheek palette. Four shimmery eyeshadow shades gear you up for your Hampton getaways: Pebble (a soft navy), Driftwood (dark brown), Sand Dune (medium beige) and Seashell (pinky white).
All the shadows are very light and sheer. At first, I thought Pebble and Driftwood would be too heavy and dark for the palette, but, they glide on smoothly and apply rather lightly (I have all four shades on in my photo!).
The Sunset Bronzing Palette contains three layers in one: a shimmery bronzer shade, a light peachy-pink blush and a highlighter. Sweep them all together to get an overall sun-kissed look, or use each one individually to sculpt model-worthy cheekbones!
Finish off your summertime look (even if you’re not jetting to the Hamptons this year) by slicking on Arbonne’s Mini Lip Polish in a dusty sheer-shimmer pink.
Arbonne Pure Vibrance Lustre Fortifying Shampoo ($36.00) — This fortifying shampoo helps strengthen dull or chemically-treated hair. ColorLast Technology restores hair’s lustre while retaining color vibrancy and longevity with rice, artichoke, Hawaiian white ginger root and sage.
I gave the Pure Vibrance Shampoo and Conditioner to my aunt, who has fine, color-treated hair. She simply raved about how the shampoo didn’t strip her hair at all! Her hair felt moisturized, not like straw with most shampoos she uses — she was able to run her fingers through her hair while it was wet. Also, the whole line has a punchy, spicy smell that you can tell right away is the Hawaiian white ginger root!
Arbonne Pure Vibrance Fortifying Crème Conditioner ($36.00) — To prevent your strands from further breakage and damage, follow up with this conditioner containing argan oil, rice, hydrolyzed linseed extract (promotes vibrant, rich, shiny-looking hair) and vicia faba seed extract (promotes healthier, fuller-looking hair).
Again, my aunt couldn’t believe how hydrated her hair felt after the conditioner. It didn’t leave her hair feeling greasy, even when applied at the roots. No greasy residue; it didn’t weigh-down her fine hair either. As Arbonne concluded in a test study: After twenty washes, 93% of color was retained in both single and double process.
The Masque is thick and won’t run off your strands of hair!
Arbonne Pure Vibrance Hair Revitalizing Masque ($52.00) — A deep-penetrating hair mask will add moisture and lustre starting from root to tip. I had to take this for myself! I can’t pass up on a hair mask (sorry, auntie!).
I have long hair and only color my ends (ombre forever!), so, I used it immediately after I re-dyed my ends one evening. Usually after I dye the ends of my hair blonde, it feels and looks like straw… well, this time that wasn’t the case. My hair looked and felt like I didn’t even color my hair! Just smooth and soft ends. Imagine what it can do for a whole head of hair!
Arbonne Pure Vibrance Texturizing Mousse ($28.00) — Is specially formulated to build natural volume and manageability with the combined benefits of protecting hair from sun damage and maintaining color longer. White tea leaf extract protects hair against environmental stress.
I used this on my roots to add some volume, but it didn’t do much. I would suggest using this throughout your entire hair to add a light amount of texture and body. Either way, it’ll style and nourish your hair in one step for soft, loose volume throughout.
