The Cost of Beauty


I meant for this to post last night, but I accidentally posted it to my old address!  Oops! 

Ok!  So, I semi-stole this title from Dr. OZ.  Last month, one of his shows featured products that we all love and use to make ourselves a bit more beautiful.  Anyone out there use mineral powder, wrinkle cream, or lip gloss?!?!?!  If you do, you’ll want to check out his site for how these products could be harming your health.  There is also a Dr. OZ cheat sheet that can help you pick products that are not harmful.

Isn’t it sad that we can just go to the store and trust that what we are purchasing won’t harm our health??? 

This is why tomorrow (Saturday) I will be hosting an Arbonne Party for my friends and family (although I doubt my dad and brothers will come!).  Arbonne is a beauty, health and wellness company that specializes in products that consist of pure and safe botanical ingredients.

“At Arbonne, beauty begins with premium botanical ingredients, innovative scientific discovery, and an unwavering commitment to pure, safe and beneficial products. Arbonne creates personal care and wellness products that preserve and enhance the skin, body and mind for an integrative approach to beauty. Working closely with scientists around the world and our Arbonne Institute of Research and Development (AIRD®) facility in Switzerland, we continually explore and develop scientifically advanced, botanically based proprietary formulas that meet our exacting standards for quality, safety and sustainability.” (Source)

My friend Kelly at Best of Nature by Kelly will be the consultant for this party, and let me tell you, she has AWESOME skin!  She literally glows! 

As you can tell by my post yesterday, it is very important to me that I use products that are sustainable, and that do not cause harm to animals.  I’ve been using the Arbonne FC5 Oil-Absorbing Day Lotion with SPF 20 and I love it!  I can’t wait to try more of their products.  I’ll fill you in on more tomorrow!

I’ve spent this evening shopping for treats to serve at the shindig tomorrow, and getting the house ready.  Sorry for such a short post! 

Check back tomorrow to learn more about Arbonne, and for a new healthy party recipe.

Enjoy your FRIDAY evening!!!!

    I use the FC5 line too. I literally can see and feel the difference in my skin. I absolutely love it and don’t think I will ever use drug store stuff again. Have fun at your party today!

  2. I’ve heard great things about Arbonne, but never tried any of their products. Have a fun get-together!

  3. Hey Jen! Thanks for helping us be aware that what we are putting on our skin is just as important as what we put in our mouths!
