Arbonne RE9 Advanced Facial Cleanser and Day Creme Review

Over the course of my thirty something years I have tried out numerous different skincare lines with some great results and some serious failures.  Through these trial and errors I have really discovered what works for me and what doesn't which is why I was sort of reluctant when a friend wanted me to host an Arbonne spa party.  I was already very happy with my current skincare line (Clinique) and have been to these kinds of parties before and really considered not having the party but I didn't want to let my friend down so I agreed to the party.  It turned out to be a very fun evening full of spa treatments and skincare product testing.  The presentation was very pleasant and informative and I was very impressed with the product line.  The company boasts some pretty big expectations for the results of their products and also offer a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your purchase.  By the end of the night I ended up purchasing the RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser and the RE9 Advanced Restorative Day Creme with SPF 20.  I was very excited to try the products out and the following is the results of my purchase.

The RE9 Advanced formula from Arbonne is a botanically based product line that addresses anti-aging concerns for both men and women.  The products are clinically proven to start working within 24 hours.  One of the first things that I noticed from the cleanser is that it has a nice light citrusy scent and feels silky in texture.  The cleanser goes on very smoothly and leaves your skin feeling very fresh and clean.  The cleanser does not lather up a lot but lathers up enough to really get a nice clean result.  A little bit of this product goes a long way.  One cleanser should last about 3 months using it twice a day.  Over all I was very pleased with the RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser.  It cleaned my skin well and left it feeling moisturized too.  Compared to some of the other cleansers that I have tried in the past I would consider this cleanser to be one of top cleansers that I have tried.  The retail price for this cleanser is $40.00 .

The Arbonne RE9 Advanced Restorative Day Creme with SPF 20 is probably my favorite product out of the whole Arbonne product line.  It goes on smoothly and leaves my skin hydrated and refreshed all day long.  It doesn't feel greasy or go on too thick and has a nice silky texture.  Top that with the fact that it has an SPF of 20 in it and you have a dynamite day creme.  It really helped out with the appearance of my fine lines and small wrinkles.  It is a very concentrated formula and again a little bit of product goes a long way.  One thing to note about this product is to avoid the eye area.  When ever I got this product to close to my eyes they would water for about 10 minutes which can get annoying.  It does state right on the packaging to avoid the eye area but I thought it was worth mentioning what happens if you happen to get the product to close to your eyes.  I found that I did go through this product a little bit faster than the cleanser by about two weeks. The retail price for the day creme is $50.00 .

I loved the results of using the cleanser and the day creme together.  I used them both twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening and really enjoyed the results.  I saw a noticeable difference in my skin within the first couple of days of using the products.  The products left my skin feeling smooth, soft and silky.  Everything that the company stated the product would do it did.  I was very happy with my purchase and would consider purchasing this product again.  One of the turn offs for me on this product is the price tag.  $90.00 for cleanser and day creme is a little steep for my budget but a saving grace is that you can earn free product by hosting a party which allowed me to get my set at a discount.  

Over all I give Arbonne high marks for the quality of their products and really can't say enough about the results that I have achieved with the use of these two products.  As with any type of skin care product results may vary from person to person and I am only reporting to you the results that I experienced from my own purchase.  I am a very happy customer and give kuddos to Arbonne for a great skin care product line.

    1. I Have found that if I use an eye makeup remover for my eye makeup that this cleanser does remove the rest of my makeup without any problems.
