This is a little more information about me and how I got started. I wrote this on my personal blog before I decided to have a blog dedicated to Arbonne...Yes, I really do love it that much!
So recently a co-worker introduced me to Arbonne...Try it out, she says. Just take home the bag and use the 5 steps. 5 STEPS??? That seems like a lot, but ok, I'm a sport, I'll try it. I didn't even know what it was.
I washed my face at 9:30 at night before bed and I texted her. My face has NEVER felt that way in my life!
Let me give a brief back-story. I had had acne since about 4th grade. I have tried everything. Natural, chemical, the only thing I did not try was accutane, because I read that if you are even thinking of having kids soon, it could give them spina-bifida....WHAT??? I was only a teenager at the time (not thinking of having kids obviously) but that bothered me. No thank you! I'll keep the zits!
I tried every item. Then someone told me about Pro-Activ. I tried it...It worked to a point. It was clearer than it used to be - so ok! BUT - everytime I laid my head on the pillow it bleached the pillowcases. I started travelling with a towel so I wouldn't ruin people's sheets. That also started to bother me! Am I putting bleach on my face??
I ended up clearing up pretty much completely when I had my kids. Maybe it was all hormonal? I started washing my face with oil (a mix of castor and olive) and that worked well until the summer, when I couldn't get the mix right. I gave up soap all together and it has been pretty good. But I still wanted to wash my face. I tried various Sephora items, but I didn't like those either.
Back to Arbonne.....I was able to try the products for 3 days. She gave me a full kit, like what I would get if I purchased it. I didn't want to give it back! But I had to :( Something inside of me right then just clicked....I HAD to sell this stuff. I HAD to be part of this company. I have a full time job already, I have 2 kids. I don't care. I had to work for them. I didn't even know anything about the company - it was just calling me. I am doing it in my spare time for now. I hope I can make it full time one day, but for now I just want people to realize what is out there in store bought products and help people be healthy. These products are all-natural, no chemicals, and nothing harmful to you or to animals. Wonderful!
Then I tried the detox program. WOW! I thought it was going to be a tough go, but I find this to be remarkable! I have no problem giving up caffeine, sugar, gluten, dairy...WHAT??? No coffee? I don't even care! I journaled my first few days of the detox and I have taken before pictures. Now I am just living in detox and I love it, but I will post my first few days for all to read. It is a very easy program! I love it! I have a whole kit of Vegan Protein powder - some of the best tasting powder out there! Fizz sticks to give you energy by way of vitamins. Fiber, Pro-biotics, and detox tea.
