It’s one of those things that boggles my mind when I discover an amazing new product and I had never heard of the brand before. And that’s why I have no idea how I had never heard of Arbonne! In case you haven’t either, you’re in for a real treat!
I recently connected with Arbonne independent consultant, Nicole Clendinning, who introduced me to the world of Arbonne and what a beautiful world it is!
We are very lucky to be able to travel quite a bit throughout the year. We usually make it to Mexico once every winter, Palm Springs a couple of times per year and then the Okanagan and other more local destinations during the summer. Sunscreen is absolutely required in all these places and we have never found one that we LOVE! We go through all sorts of different brands and I’m never really tied to one in particular. Well, I haven’t been until recently!!!
We are now loyal Arbonne sunscreen users. It’s honestly THE BEST! We had our first experience with it on our latest Mexico holiday and we were sold! In the 2 weeks we were there, the girls didn’t burn once (and I only applied the sunscreen first thing in the morning). In and out of the water and over the course of 8 hour days in the sunshine, the girls were completely protected. It’s such a relief as a parent knowing you can apply sun-protection and not have to think about it again for the rest of the day!
Formulated with antioxidants, vitamins and soothing botanicals, our water-resistant sunscreen protects, nurtures and moisturizes baby’s delicate skin. Developed with sensitive skin in mind, this unscented formula easily glides on while providing broad spectrum protection.
And I’ll let you in on a little secret… Our whole family used the ‘baby’ sunscreen. (Oops?) It was actually intentional because I wanted to test it out on myself as well. I tend to break out when I use sunscreens and this one actually agreed with my skin!
We have been using the entire ABC Arbonne Baby Care line. Something I really like about the diaper rash cream is that it goes on thick and seems to really stay on. And another little secret (this one compliments of Nicole Clendinning)… the diaper rash cream helps soothe the itch from mosquito bites. You better believe we put that to the test on the many bites we are got while away.
My one very minor ‘issue’ with the ABC line is the packaging. All the bottles look the same! I kept getting the creams mixed up and my dad actually coated his entire face with diaper rash cream one day instead of sunscreen. While we all appreciated the laugh, we did have to do double takes on the bottles quite often to make sure we had grabbed the right one! Other than that, we are 100% hooked on Arbonne!
When my full-time job ended in May 2013 due to an unforeseen mass layoff in the public sector, I was devastated. Instead of whining about it, I had an opportunity to take another path. No rushing around, grabbing meals on-the-go. No work deadlines to meet, missing every school field trip in my daughter’s kindergarten year. I pounced on the idea to take the summer off and spend more time with her. She and I had the most hilarious and unforgettable moments together that summer. All the while, my Arbonne business launched successfully. Only after two months in the business, I achieved Executive District Manager. I am building a strong team of intelligent, creative, capable and hard-working women to work their business with me.
Shall I dare say that I have achieved the true work-life balance that I have been working to attain throughout my 23-year career in finance and audit? I certainly dare. I think it is normal to ask, “What if this doesn’t work?” I suggest that it is more worthwhile to ask, “What if it does?”
