I've mentioned many times that I have been plagued with dry skin my entire life. I've tried pretty much everything under the sun: Eucerin, Aquaphor, olive oil, almond oil, Bag Balm (this is still the best thing I've got for my psoriasis), and I even went through a phase in high school where I would keep a tube of Neosporin in my purse for the cracked skin on my hands, which was definitely more than a little bit weird. When a kind blog reader, Samantha, who is a wife, mom to three, and an Independent Consultant for the health and wellness company, Arbonne, reached out to me to see if I would do a review and giveaway, I said yes for three reasons - 1) I love offering giveaways to you! 2) I love helping moms provide for their families and 3) my crazy, crazy skin was thirsty for a new product to try.
You might have heard about Arbonne from friends or Facebook, but the company offers skincare, cosmetics, nutrition and baby care lines. All of their products are gluten-free, vegan, free of paragons, phthalates and artificial fragrances so if you have a lot of sensitivities in your family, they've got you covered. Their goal is to combine the best of science and the best of nature to offer extraordinary products. From speaking with Samantha and listening to a talk she sent me, their consultants love what they can offer and what they do.
Samantha was extremely patient with my indecisiveness and less than desirable response time to her emails, but I am incredibly pleased with the Arbonne Shea Butter Hand and Body Lotion. And this is the first product I've tried where Chris actually genuinely loves the scent! My skin is still smooth and moisturized hours later, and there is no greasy feeling at all, which can be a problem I've found with most well-moisturizing products. Samantha also sent me a few samples, and the cooling foot cream worked wonders on my post-winter feet which are really embarrassing to take out in public.
