When I was 18 years old, I was invited to an “Arbonne party” at a friends house. I was a young military wife and mom in a brand new town and did not know many people, but I had one friend, and she invited me to a party – so no matter what kind of party it was (I did not have the foggiest idea what “Arbonne” was), I was going. Never in a million years did I think as I sat on the floor with my infant daughter, that my life would be forever changed sitting in that living room, listening to a woman tell me how I could be my own boss, make my own hours, and stay home with my baby girl.
You have probably figured out by now that Arbonne was my first direct sales company, and even to this day still holds a very dear place in my heart. It was with Arbonne that I discovered a love for direct sales, home parties, recruiting, and leadership.
The Arbonne story began 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’s skin care products, based on botanical principles, became a reality in the United States in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world through Arbonne’s network of Independent Consultants. Building on these same founding principles, Arbonne’s product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results!
Arbonne’s Swiss, botanically based skin care is known for remarkable results in record time. Their tag line is “Pure, Safe, and Beneficial” – and it is this promise that they give to all of their customers, hostesses, and Consultants. Arbonne personal care products are formulated without animal products or animal by-products, Parabens, Formaldehyde-donating preservatives, or petroleum-based ingredients such as Benzene, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Phthalates, and Toluene.
Independent Arbonne Consultant Alicia Amuneke sent me some of my favorite products as well as some of her own favorites to try for Christmas in July. My favorites include both the Unwind Bath Salts and Awaken Sea Salt Scrub from the Arbonne Aromassentials line. The Unwind Bath Salts have been a favorite of mine literally since they were released in the late 90s. Just a small scoop of Unwind Bath Salts in my daughter bath would help calm her down and make bedtime nice and relaxing. The scent is wonderful and includes chamomile for calmness and ylang-ylang for relaxation.
Alicia also sent me a bottle of Arbonne’s Glow With It After Sun Lotion. Knowing I live in Florida and spend a lot of time outside – and often complain about the years of sun damage that are now becoming more and more visible on my skin, this was the perfect product for me.
