“Arbonne Made Me Break Out”

OK, Arbonne didn’t actually make me break out, but there are a lot of people over at (forgive me in advance)… that are (well) “pissed” with Arbonne.

I have heard from several (mostly former) Arbonne reps that the quality of the products has taken a nosedive and I was skeptical but this looks like the problem might be worse that I thought.

Here are some examples from the site (these are all from the last couple of weeks):


I started using the Clear Advantage line of Arbonne. I had a few spots of acne that I wanted to get rid of and smooth my skin out. I started using their products and my skin started to itch a bit, just a small uncomfortable one. I slowed down the applications to every second day and my skin started to peel, the redness of my acne increased severely and it has actually expanded to my whole jaw line and neck.

I am quite unsatisfied with this product, I was expecting much more from this company.

As a student I took a risk paying for a quality product which has given me much disappointment.

Here is another:

“Major Breakout”

I went to a party and used several products during the demonstration. Because of the price of the merchandise, I ordered just the facial cleanser and face cream. The next day my face was on fire! It took several days to eliminate the redness and dry skin. I thought maybe since I had added some daily vitamins to my routine at the same time, that they make have reacted. I eliminated the supplements and when my order arrived, I used the products ONCE. My face looks like I have a sunburn! I hope my experience in returning the merchandise is better than others have posted.

And another:

“Arbonne Sucks!”

I hosted a party for Arbonne in my home…everyone LOVED the stuff so I TOO wanted to try it out. I used it all over my face, hands, feet etc at the party, I now, am broken out, HUGE pimples everywhere on my face and chest and it SUCKS. I NEVER break out, ever. and the sales lady said OH NO WORRIES nobody is allergic to our stuff, bullshit. why am I broken out everywhere??? I just do not understand why it happened, two other grls at my show who used it also broke out and are having the same pimple problem. never using this crap again.

  1. PROTECT YOURSELF… I think that it important that we all choose companies that DO NOT have CLAUSES justifying termination if you choose to sign up with another MLM or Direct Selling project. We live in America and are able to choose to work in more than one job… how can companies MLM and Direct Selling Companies terminate us for signing up in another MLM Company? Why can't we also choose to find the right home for the right person in more than one project including ourselves. It is absolutely terrible to see the "witch hunts" going on in companies to terminate leaders who have worked very hard to bring hundreds and even thousands of distributors and revenues… just to finds themselves terminated without even being able to defend themselves as they have just had their income shut off. Please CHECK YOUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES and make sure that you will NOT be terminated if you or your team choose to work in more than one opportunity. If you see that clause posted… be sure it is your final home before putting in any significant effort. Be sure to not recruit people from other downlines into your other opportunity as that would be a justified termination. Also be sure that your company has a Distributor Arbitration Board in place to revue any challenges in behalf of the distributors. There should not be any Corporate members on the board as if a company terminates you… they will no longer have the expense of paying you and so it is to their advantage and therefore they would be biased. Make good choices so you can have great results in your home based business venture.

    I'm highly allergic to lemon and citric fruits and most of their products contain this. So YES you can be allergic to this crap. All my friends that have had acne issues love this product because it fixes the problem. So I decided to try it. But as for me, I've never had acne problems and broke out the worst I've ever seen. I have never seen my face react to such chemicals, then I remembered I was allergic to a lot of citric fruits. So when I googled their ingredients, well thats the cause. If your a first time user, I would recommend trying it somewhere on your arm to see if you breakout before you try your face. So its a 50/50 of the product working on your skin. I kept the eye creamer and face wash but returned everything else. My face couldn't hack all those ingredients.
