Brandi, over at Brandi’s V-Spot blog, was holding a contest for a free Arbonne Seasource Detox Spa Express Set. As I love any good contest that is vegan related, and has such an awesome prize as a full size (what you’d buy if you’re purchasing the same pack) Arbonne Express Detox set, I entered my answers to the questions – basically how much I love animals and how long I plan on being vegan (can you say ‘to infinity and beyond’?). I was amazed when I got the email saying I had won!! I was ecstatic to say the least! So Brandi sends me the kit, and I’m blown away by the amount of stuff I won. Full bottles of Detoxifying Rescue Wash, Fortifying Hair mask, Sea Mud Face & Body Mask, Renewing Body Gelée, and Foaming Salt Scrub! Not only did she include the full kit, but she was kind enough to toss in a couple bags of detox tea, a few stickers from PETA, and of course info on the kit itself.
So to the review part. The first time I washed my face with the body/face Detoxifying Rescue wash, I could instantly feel a cleaner wash (and I’d been using Alba Organics, which gives a pretty clean wash) – but this was different. Maybe it’s because my skin was so desperate for something more with all the construction going on (see Apologies and News)..I don’t know, but it felt great! It has a bit of a citrus scent to it (which I know is excellent for reversing damage to skin). The Body Gelée has that wonderful minty scent that perks you right up – perfect for my legs during ladder climbing and such. And it makes my skin feel just like silk…vegan silk! The Fortifying Hair Mask makes my hair as soft as the day I was born – before any damaging sun rays, or hair coloring or product infiltration! I didn’t even have to use a leave-in conditioner out of the shower in order to comb it out (you know, to detangle it). I felt like a whole new person – or better yet, I felt like the beautiful girly girl I was before all this manly manual labor commenced 😉 The Foaming Salt scrub buffed away the impurities and my skin glowed after the shower!
Of course, I wouldn’t recommend doing construction just so you can buy a Detox Kit…I think you could reap even more benefits on a ‘normal’ regular basis from such products. So thank you, Brandi, for my random selection so I could experience something I normally wouldn’t have splurged on myself. I have a feeling, I’m going to be working Arbonne into the budget for beauty regimen in the future.
This was not a solicited review, but Brandi is now a consultant for Arbonne International…if you need products, Brandi is your gal!
