Facing Frustration - Arbonne

About three years ago I started using Arbonne's Intelligence face system. As I've mentioned before, I have terrible troubles with my face; acne, dry patches, oily, just overall a mess. I finally found the perfect facial concoction: Arbonne's Intelligence line at night, Proactive in the morning and Bare Escentuals for makeup. My face was pretty much flawless for a year. Well as I wrote a few months back I tried Burt's Bees facial cleanser to help save money, it worked okay but not nearly as well as I hoped it would. When that ran out I decided that I would go back to Arbonne. I went to order my facial products and saw that the Intelligence line is gone! Gone?!?!?!?!

So now what? Well they have a new line to replace it: FC5.

I ordered the line and so far it is not helping. I'm so frustrated! It's taken me years to figure out the perfect concoction for my face and now it's all ruined. I'm totally breaking out on my left cheek and chin. I'm so frustrated! I'm gonna continue to try FC5 for another week but if it doesn't work then I'm sending it back and starting from square one. Frustrating!!!

  1. Hi Alicia...trying FC5 for another week maybe the answer for you. Our skin is the largest organ and it reveals much about our internal as well as external conditions. The Arbonne Clear Advantage has been reformulated as of April and I highly recommend that line instead of the Proactive. The addition of the Spot Treatment is a long awaited product. Taking the Clear Advantage supplement works on the internal issues that affect our skin. I am an Arbonne Consultant with two teens, 14 and 17 and these products work. If the FC5 does not work for you after next week then go for the best...RE9 (I use it all) it addresses so many skin issues and the Resist supplement is beneficial. Hopefully you are in the 45 day return window that Arbonne offers (for the FC5). Additionally, Detox maybe needed to help you. I view Arbonne as a recipe that uses all the ingredients (internal and external) for optimal results. Arbonne is pure safe benefical because it is botanically based.
    Hope you get the results you desire

  3. Lisa, I appreciate your response. I'm actually fully aware of all of Arbonne's products and their uses. RE9 is absolutely horrible for my face. Even after using it for a month for "detox" my face is a giant grease ball. Not cool. As for the Clear Advantage, I do not use ProActiv for acne but rather for it's medicinal purposes for a condition that no one can diagnose or treat. ProActiv is the only thing that I can use that keeps it away. I appreciate your insight but unfortunately I really miss the Intelligence line.
