My First Beauty Post!
I can't believe I haven't written a blog post for over a week, I was starting to feel guilty but i've just been so busy especially with my new job! I'm so used to having lots of days off and just being able to do bits here and there but having an (almost) full time job seems to be throwing my outside of work things off a bit! But here I am, i'm still here and tonight i'm gonna do a beauty post which i've never done before!
I'm not a huge beauty person to be honest, I know what I like and don't tend to try anything different or splurge lots of money on expensive and cult beauty products, I much prefer to spend my money on clothes! However I do unfortunately suffer with quite bad skin and have been looking for years for a product that will help. I have tried everything whether it's cheap yet natural products like Simple or more expensive French brands like Clinique and Clarins, nothing seemed to help! Until a year ago I was introduced to a Swiss based company called Arbonne by a friend from Uni. The products were described as pure, safe and beneficial and I gave them a go because Swiss products were something I always see in Harvey Nichols and think i'll never be able to afford!
I decided to try the anti ageing range and borrowed the smoothing facial cleanser, restorative day creme and the night repair creme as samples. To be honest they didn't really have much of an effect on me straight away, i'm always hoping for a miracle and for my skin to clear up over night, but I did however notice that my skin felt a lot smoother. I bought the products anyway, they were expensive but I signed up to be a client which gave me a hefty discount and I am blown away by the results. My skin used to be very red, scarred and covered with blemishes, and after 6 months of using the products daily I can say it is pretty much clear. I have been able to go out without foundation and concealer, something I never thought I would be able to do and when I wake up in the morning my skin is a balanced colour, gone are the red and dry patches I used to suffer with.
I just wish I had a before and after picture so you could see how good my results were! If you fancy checking out the range for yourself their website is here and if you use it please let me know i'd love to hear how your skin has reacted!
