Hi my dear readers, I’m enjoying a relaxing Saturday at home, reading and looking for inspiration.
Today’s review is about Arbonne Makeup Primer. My friend Ruth has recently become an Arbonne Independent Consultant and she kindly invited me to her launch two weeks ago(can’t believe time went so fast).
I went to her launch with curiosity, wondering what kinds of products I could encounter. From the booklet Ruth provided and the presentation on the day, I learnt that Arbonne is developed in Switzerland about some 30 years ago and now has grown globally with offices in countries including USA, UK, Canada and Australia.
So what is Arbonne? I did some research and found the information below on their Australian website https://www.arbonneinternational.com.au, that:
“The idea to provide skincare products unparalleled in quality and effectiveness developed in Switzerland in 1975, when one man, Petter Mørck, together with a group of leading bio-chemists, biologists and herbalists, fulfilled his vision and founded Arbonne.
“Arbonne began with a line of 19 Swiss-formulated skin care products, developed at the Arbonne Institute of Research and Development (AIRD). Over the years, the product portfolio has grown to include aromatherapy, cosmetics, nutrition and much more.”
“At Arbonne, we are all about being green — always have been and always will be.”
As I’m an makeup addict, I decided to buy a couple of makeup items including eyeshadow and makeup primer to test out.
I have relatively large pores around nose area and it is also the most oily part of my face. I have tried a few makeup primers in order to reduce pores and control oil, however I find that not one product can do both for me at the same time. While many You Tube beauty gurus raving about Benefit porefessional, sadly, I couldn’t get the product to work for me on the part of reducing pores. ( I like using benefit porefessional to blur fine lines of my under eye area.)
Arbonne makeup primer is light weighted and silicon based. It feels and applies smoothly on the skin, and best of all is that it truly minimises pores and controls oil. I like that once I applied the primer, whichever foundations I use on the day will not settle into those little tiny pores making it more visible. As I am conscious about the oiliness of my nose area can be, I have been checking every four or five hours to see if it has become a grease ball. With four days of wearing Arboone primer, I noticed that my nose has not been as oily as before because my skin care routine has been normal as usual except of using different primers depending how I feel each day. As to the claim of diminishing fine lines I haven’t used this primer for that purpose so I can’t comment on that just yet.(I’ll update my thoughts when I do.)
Will you try this primer? If you decided to try out, please let me know how you go.
^^ The product was purchased by me on the day of Ruth’s launch, therefore I got 35% off the original price $51.
^^This review is my honest opinion with first hand experience.
Thanks for reading.
Stay fabulous and beautiful; stay tuned for my next post.
