I wasn’t even aware of the brand Arbonne until my hair stylist mentioned it to me a few months ago. Just goes to show you how you are always learning new things in the beauty industry! Arbonne is similar to Avon and Mary Kay in the sense that you buy from a consultant, but I feel that Arbonne stands apart from the others due to having better quality products and all natural ingredients. I received a sample bag containing mascara, detox bath salts, and 3 products from the Clear Future Acne Treatment line. This is what I thought of each…
- Mascara– The 3 things I look for in a mascara are for it to be lengthening, thickening and clump-free. I was very happy this mascara didn’t clump and it also legnthened rather well. I do wish it thickened my lashes a little more, as my lashes are thinner now than they used to be. If you are someone who already has thick lashes, it will work especially great for you. Overall, I was happy with the results.
- Detox Bath Salts– I received a small portion of bath salts, around a hand full. I used half of them in a bath one night and the other half the next night. You probably should use them all in one bath, but I split them up because less is usually more with me. Both times after using them I did sleep a little better, was less achy and had a bit more energy. I would like to try these again in a larger quantity.
- Clear Future Acne Treatment– This consisted of a Deep Pore Acne Cleanser, Corrective Acne Treatment Solution and Mattifying Acne Treatment Lotion. I used all three as my nightly skincare routine and went to bed. I did expect some mild flaking due to the main ingredient, salicylic acid in all 3 products. The next morning, I noticed my blemishes were noticeably smaller and healed up rather quickly. These products should be used based on how dry and/or flaky your skin gets. You can use one or all of them, so it’s important to monitor your skin daily to see how it responds.
Overall, I was pleased with the results I got from the Arbonne samples. I really like that Arbonne incorporates nutrition and wellness into their products and I feel this sets them apart from many other brands. If you are interested in trying Arbonne samples and/or purchasing their products, you can visit the website for my consultant, Sara Stroud.
Why I Love Beauty Samples & Subscriptions

After several years in the beauty industry, I still learn of new make up brands I didn’t know about. Most brands are big on marketing and have large campaigns (especially department store brands). The majority of companies think the more exposure the better and do everything they can to promote their products. There is one brand that is different in this aspect and it may be a brand you have never heard of: Glo Skin Beauty (formerly Glo Minerals).
When I first entered the beauty industry, I hadn’t heard of Glo Skin Beauty before and I found many others hadn’t either. The brand is more familiar to people in the industry, so the average person may not be aware or have access to their products. I was able to attend a few training sessions with Glo reps as a student and was able to learn and understand more about the brand and why so many people have not heard of them.
Glo Skin Beauty is a skin care and mineral make up brand which uses antioxidants and natural ingredients to treat and improve the skin. They have products for many skin concerns such as anti-aging, acne, sensitive skin and many others. Glo Skin Beauty puts a high value on their research and that is where they choose to invest a great deal of time and money. Many other brands are spending thousands on marketing campaigns and don’t focus as much on their research. Glo Skin Beauty feels that research is the most important thing to spend money on and that is what they do.
So how do people know about Glo Skin Beauty if they don’t advertise? How do they stay in business? Those were the questions asked the most in the training sessions I attended. If you see a Glo Skin Beauty product mentioned in a publication, for example, it’s because a person (possibly a celebrity) or the publication decided to talk about it. It’s not a paid ad from the company. Their products are carried in salons, spas, doctor offices and are promoted in publications, blogs, etc. The brand has built a large and loyal customer base from this approach. Personally, I have used Glo Skin Beauty for 5 years and have been pleased with the results. They have a diverse selection of products and have something for everyone. I highly recommend their skin care and make up!
