Arbonne has been around for a while. My best friend at the time got sucked into trying to sell it and that was 20 years ago now. Just like other people here describe, she and other consultants are very pushy. She absolutely insisted that my mother and I try it. Being her best friend I agreed to of course. But my face turned bright red like a terrible sunburn and started peeling. People at work would ask me what the heck was wrong with my face! My mother had the same exact reaction. I told my friend what happened and she absolutely insisted that I continue to use it, that the redness and peeling was "normal" and in a couple of weeks it would clear up and I would have beautiful, wonderful skin.
Two weeks later my face was still red and peeling, but had then started becoming painful and having open sores. "That's normal!" She kept insisting like a mad dog. She also dragged me along to a meeting in an effort to recruit me. It was a meeting ran by an older woman dressed in an expensive suit, who clearly thought she was quite fabulous. She basically badgered everybody there, yet not she or any one else said anything about my exploding face.
Suffice to say I stopped using it, and within a few days my skin had improved dramatically. My friend claimed that was the Arbonne working it's magic. So like a complete tool I went back on the Arbonne, and guess what? Yep, my face blew up again. So I stopped it again and my face went back to normal. My friend said that I wasn't using it right.
She continued to push until I had to change my phone number and stop talking to her completely. I also heard later that she had alienated her cousin for the same exact reasons.
It's funny and interesting that some people are soooooooo offended by the negative comments and feel it necessary to defend this product.
It worked for you? Great. It didn't work for you? Bummer. Both are the truth.
