As you know, I've been trying to get the word out about the growing number of gluten free skin care lines. I just wanted to share a quick post today about one I've personally tried -- a wonderful skin care line that's free of gluten...and that I'm currently using (the company has a line of high-quality gluten free vitamin supplements, too, so read on).
In the past 15+ years, I really started scrutinizing the skin care products I used. Good products can be expensive, and I wanted to make sure I was getting the most for my money. Just as I've always been very vigilant reading labels to find out what is in the foods I buy, I've also become more interested in what ingredients are in the personal care products I use. I've become aware of some of the harmful chemicals allowed in skin care, hair care, and cosmetics in this country -- ingredients that are not even allowed in Europe and other parts of the world.
That's why I was excited to try Arbonne's skin care products. I'd heard a lot about them over the years from neighbors and friends. But it wasn't until recently that I decided to give them a try. All Arbonne's products are formulated in Switzerland and are dermatologist-tested, botanically based, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
Since I'm now in my 40s (shh...don't tell!), their anti-aging "RE9 Advanced" line held particular appeal to me. It's a full line that includes a creamy foaming cleanser, toner, anti-aging serum, a day moisturizer with SPF, night cream, and eye cream.
The products smell heavenly, and I can honestly see results after using them for just the past month (in fact, many of the results were noticeable right away). My skin appears smoother and clearer -- and fine lines are minimized. The products contain 9 powerful age-defying elements that work together to target the many different facets of aging skin.
No matter what your age, you'd love these nourishing products. You can check out their other products -- including hair care, skin care, cosmetics, sun protection, and fragrances -- on my friend Kristen's Arbonne website. She is offering all friends of GlutenFreeTravelSite and the Gluten Free Travel Blog a 10% discount on orders.
Arbonne also has a line of nutritional supplements that are gluten free. There are supplements targeted for women, men, and kids/teens. There are also products that address joint health, proper digestion, and immunity support (great for heading into cold/flu season). They also offer some products which can typically be hard to find gluten free....a "Feeling Fit" 30-day weight management program, as well as gluten free protein shakes and energy shakes. There's even a new Cleansing/Detox kit. I know Kristen and many of her clients have had huge success following the Feeling Fit weight management program, which gives you a jump-start toward your weight loss goals and is also free of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, cholesterol, trans fats and animal products. And again, all gluten free....
