It’s time to spoil your Mum! To celebrate Mothers Day, I have some Arbonne goodness to give away thanks to Arbonne Independent Consultant Jessica Stone.
Arbonne is a botanically based and vegan certified beauty and wellness brand that I’ve recently discovered. Originally hailing from Switzerland, Arbonne offers ultra-premium products that are toxic-free, and beneficial to the skin and body due to their antioxidant rich ingredients.
Why should I care if it’s vegan certified or not?
It didn’t bother me too much whether the product was vegan until Jess told me that cosmetic companies are the largest purchasers of animal fat which is used as filler in the majority of skincare and cosmetics products on the market. Get ready, this is about to get gross. Animal fat is made from all the left over parts of animals at slaughterhouses, boiled up and then the fat is scraped off the top. After hearing that I was pretty convinced I wanted to wear vegan makeup! Of course cosmetic companies don’t write ‘animal fat’ on the product because most don’t have enough of it to meet the legal requirement to do so. You can however use this list to check what animal by-products are used in your skincare products.
Why should I care about cruelty free makeup?
Arbonne products are also cruelty free and no testing is done on animals. I also didn’t think this was a huge deal until I Googled it. You need to do this too before you choose where you buy your make up next, it is quite shocking. Many animals go blind or die and you can still be sold the product.
Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs up to 60% of what we put on it, so it’s important to choose safe products for optimum skin health. Arbonne products are priced similarly to Clinique and you can only purchase them through an independent consultant (don’t worry Jess is delightful to work with and would love to hear from you! You can find her Facebook page here). Arbonne are so committed to their quality of product, that they offer a 45 day money back guarantee if the products aren’t quite right for you.
I have 2 prize packs to give away which include a 1 hour Beauty Session with Jess, so you and your mum or special someone can indulge in. You’ll get to experience Arbonne’s signature skincare, have your foundation colour match and a natural makeover PLUS a $15 product gift voucher. These are available to participants in Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
