I had the good fortune to meet a really cool and enthusiastic woman a few days ago at an information session about healthy skin products. I am fascinated by this sort of thing, especially as we continue to learn that many products we grew up with and trusted may be linked to ill health effects and even cancer. I think it is so important to be educated about what goes into the products we use on ourselves and babies, why they are used and what it means from a health perspective. Jean is a total expert on all this stuff and revitalized my already pretty vigilant stance on being chemical free.
In addition to providing an amazing service of educating all of us about the risks and benefits of certain ingredients, Jean was providing samples of a really cool line of skin care called ARBONNE.
I happily sniffed, applied, ooh-ed and ahh-ed over the deliciously rich creams and their yummy light fragrances and of course I jumped at the chance to take home a few samples
The baby care line is great. I truly wish I had known about this product when my kids were babies. I searched really hard for stuff like this without ever really finding something that nailed it like these did.
My kids tried and loved everything–it was fun how excited they were about the cute simple drawings on the packaging. The hair & body wash lathers super well and washes off easily-so important when rinsing a squirmy baby! The lotion is non-greasy, goes on smoothly and absorbed easily. My son exclaimed “It feels soft!” The herbal diaper rash cream is awesome. My daughter only wears diapers at night but still get irritated from time to time. I put a small amount of the cream on before bed and the little bit of pink she had was all gone by the morning. Something every mom wants. It also is not crazy thick or weirdly oily like different creams I’ve tried. And I’ve tried lots. It’s been rainy so I haven’t tried the sunscreen yet, but another mom told me it works really well and offer great protection.
Jean was also nice enough to let me try some anti-aging creams. They are truly luxurious. I personally don’t follow a very comprehensive skin care regimen but I definitely fell in love with the eye cream and the facial wash -two thing I am super picky about.
