WIN: 1 of 10 Sets of RE9 Anti Ageing Range by Arbonne

I wanted to kick start my posts for 2017 with an exciting giveaway, so thought what better to offer than my favourite product of 2016! The RE9 Anti Ageing range by Arbonne.

As most of you will know, I am now a consultant for Arbonne, which is a very luxurious health and wellness brand. The absolute hero of their product range is the Anti Ageing products and I have miniature sets of the award winning RE9 that I want to give to 10 lovely subscribers of my blog. The results can be noticed anywhere between 24 hours and 7 days of use and the SRP value of this full set is £268 (a mere smidgen of the cost if this was sold through retail as opposed to direct selling!)  A full review of these products can be seen here.

It was this range that made me sign up as a consultant, I was absolutely blown away by the results of the products. I have since introduced this range to almost all of my friends who in turn have either joined the team or regularly buy these products. They are simply, amazing.

I asked them to give me a quote to share on this post…

“Oh my god. They have transformed my skin!” – Hannah Fairhurst, Family Solicitor

“I have had so many compliments on my skin since using this set!” – Kate Cannon, Former Global Sales Director of Oil & Gas Company

“It was the neck cream that got me!” – Janine Alexander, Hypnotherapist and Author

“I was nervous at first, I have never been one to stick to a strict skincare regime, but now I would go without food before missing out a step in my RE9 skincare!” – Lucy Tysoe, Marketing Director

“I didn’t even finish my Crem de la Mer after being introduced to these products. I am now a consultant!” – Jo Collins, Owner of Sellers PR

“I have been searching for a luxury Vegan brand for years, honestly I didn’t think they existed and accepted that if I wanted to go cruelty free – it meant sacrificing on my looks! Not any more!” – Michelle Lenan, Busy Mum of 3

All Arbonne products are botanically based and are formulated without parabens, SLS or mineral oils (a nasty bulking agent found in pretty  much all major department store brands) and are suitable for Vegans. We are actually the number 1 beauty brand recommended by Peta the animal welfare organisation. However, just because our products are plant based – this does not mean they are not effective. The formulations are incredibly sophisticated – there ethos is to combine the best of nature with the best of science avoiding all harmful chemicals, this means the ingredients are very active and the RE9 range is not recommended for people with hyper sensitive skin (if this is you – get in touch and I will happily send you products from our Calm range instead).

If you would like to get your hands on one of these miniature sets, simply enter my giveaway via any of the following ways:

The 10 winners will be selected by random and notified on 31st January 2017. 

Good luck! x

My Journey With Arbonne!

Something rather exciting happened to me last month and I wanted to share this with you and also apologise for being MIA on the blogoshere these past few months. Hopefully this will explain why…

I, like many other mums, gave up my career to start a family. I loved my job in Digital Marketing managing some of the most high profile brands in the world and was truly gutted the day I handed in my notice. But the truth is, going back to the office hours and long commute to London meant missing out on precious time with my daughter and when a choice of the 2 had to be made, family obviously won. I have dabbled in many things since having Scarlett, from events management, digital marketing consulting, feature writing, even modelling! I had accepted that my time to relaunch my career properly would be when the girls were grown up. It turns out this is not something I have to wait for any longer…

I am now proud to say I am a Network Marketing Professional, back in the luxury beauty business and work alongside the most incredible team of inspirational and motivational people that make me raise my game every day. I have never before been a part of something this exciting!

5 months ago I said yes to this opportunity and I have never looked back. I actually wrote the basics of what this business involves in an earlier post Network Marketing: What’s it all about? I wrote this in my first month of setting up this business so had no idea of all the other immeasurable benefits this business offered. The personal development that comes with it surprises me every day. This business has given me so much confidence to meet new people and I can talk with complete conviction and passion when it comes to my work. I have been presenting power points for over 10 years back in the corporate world, and honestly I dreaded every single one of them. But now I am presenting to rooms full of like minded people and love every second of it. I am talking about something that matters to me and I hope that what I am saying will matter to them. My approach to work is so different now, I want to help people and have no agenda in doing so. I am learning every day and becoming a better version of myself in the process.

Here I am presenting my ‘story to Area Manager’ at a multi region training event.

This was taken at a recent training event, myself and Kate were awarded gifts as recognition for our achievements. Kate was Global Sales Director for an oil and gas company and is one of the newest members of my team and already a District Manager in qualification.

Last month, less than 5 months in to starting this business I celebrated my second promotion and broke records in our Region in doing so. I am now an Area Manager and Independent Consultant for Arbonne!

Celebrating with my friend Hannah, a Solicitor specialising in family law and a District Manager for Arbonne. We both promoted in the same month!

I had so much support from the guys in my team and just as I am with them, they were rooting for me to achieve my goals. My wonderful sponsor Nina treated me to this beautiful gift for a job well done and I have been contacted by consultants around the world congratulating me or seeking advice which I genuinely love to give back.

Not a diamond in site and yet still one of my most precious items of jewellery!

The next step is the one most recognised in the business, it’s Regional Vice President and that’s when you get the white Mercedes. I am so close I can smell it!

Network Marketing is a credible and reputable business endorsed by some of the top entrepreneurs in the world – Richard Branson for one! Every networking brand has a different approach, and whilst not all are an approach I would partake in, I support this industry whole heartedly and respect all brands that choose to sell through this platform.

When I joined this business 5 people close to me saw the potential and joined with me. Between us, we have 6 promotions and have grown the team to 30 professional men and women. This number will be even higher before the month is out! I can not believe how quickly this is growing, and can’t begin to convey in a blog post just how exciting this is! We are already making our plans for our trip to Vegas in April to attend the annual conference where over 22,000 consultants meet from around the world in a bid to succeed and grow our business.

Celebratory dinner with these two network marketing legends, Regional Vice President Nina Alexander and National Vice President Ella Harper!

The best bit about this is watching the people you have introduced succeed. I couldnt believe this to be true when I first joined, but I get it now. Watching my friends and my sisters grow their business and love this as much as me is what keeps me going. Being able to offer the ultimate work life balance is what this business is all about. When you take in to account the cost of childcare and travel, just 5 months in I am already earning more than if I had gone back to work at Directors level! I haven’t needed 1 minute additional childcare to start this business, most of my “meetings” are carried out over play dates or lunches at pizza express with the kids, and monthly training and team strategy meetings can be accessed via zoom in the evenings once the children are in bed.

It’s wonderful being back in the driving seat of my career and contributing financially to the household once more, I wake up grateful every day for the life that I am now living and would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to my family, my friends and especially to my husband for supporting me every step of the way. xx

 

Review: RE9 Advanced Anti Ageing Range

It’s no secret, I am wholeheartedly in love with the entire Arbonne range of products. As a brand, Arbonne tick every one of my consumer boxes. The range is cruelty free, vegan friendly and is free of toxic nasties found in almost all leading premium beauty brands. Since using Arbonne, I have become very conscious of the ingredients in products I use and can say with complete certainty that I shall never go back to a skincare product that is not made with botanical ingredients.

The RE9 collection is by far the hero in the Arbonne range, the results can be seen on some people in just a matter of days. I have been using this range religiously morning and night for 4 weeks now and my skin is the best it’s been for years. The first few days of trying the products, I had a bit of a breakout in spots, I had faith that this was simply down to such active ingredients clearing my skin of the toxins deeply imbedded. I persevered and within a week my face was clear of spots and looked healthier than ever.

Here is my new routine!

I start off with the RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser, £33 and use this as a face wash morning and night. This lather’s beautifully and removes all traces of make up and impurities.

Next up is a quick mist with the RE9 Regenerating Toner, £29,  rich in antioxidants and works to balance your PH levels.

On to the RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum, £48 – probably the most active of all the steps – this absorbs deep into the skin and supports your natural collagen and has been proven to visibly firm and lift skin.

A quick dab of the RE9 Corrective Eye Creme, £46, under and above my eyes for fine lines and dark circles. Some friends I have introduced these products to felt this working as soon as they applied it!

And finally the RE9 Restorative Day Creme, £42, with SPF 20. This leaves my skin feeling moisturised and radiant. Honestly, I have never known a moisturiser to instantly give such a brilliant finish to my complexion.

Don’t take just my word for it, the RE9 range came number 1 in an independent clinical trial against the leading department store brand for getting better results in achieving a younger looking complexion across 4 weeks. Check this out here along with some before and after pics!

*****Super Special Offer!*****

Individually these products seem quite expensive, but if you wanted the full range with night cream there is currently a special offer price of £213 which also includes the Genius Intelligence Nightly Resurfacing pads (normal price £87 and is AMAZING on acne scars and age spots!) PLUS a free gift of your choice! If you went for this offer you would automatically become a Preffered Client and get 20% off future orders (normal price is £17 to get this discount for a year).

To take advantage of this offer drop me an email and I’ll set you up to make sure you get the freebies! fayejacobs@hotmail.com

If you wanted to ease into this range, then the prices start from just £29. If you were dissatisfied with the results – Arbonne offer a 45 day money back guarantee which is an incredibly bold move by a beauty brand – they are pretty confident in their products!

Just do me a favour, check the ingredients in the products you are using. If at any point they mention mineral oils or parabens (these are usually listed as methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben) then run for the hills. Parabens are toxic preservatives offering a longer shelf life for your products – traces of parabens have been found in breast tumours. And mineral oil is basically a by-product of petrol and is nothing more than a cost effective bulking agent!

If you have any questions at all about this range or might be interested in trying a sample before buying, then feel free to get in touch at fayejacobs@hotmail.com
