Alison Groves is a Wedding Photographer based in Manchester who covers the North East and West of England. She describes her style of Photography as very relaxed and natural, bringing out the real you.
Along side this Alison is now a convert and consultant for Arbonne.
I leave Alison to share how a skin care product has made a big difference in her life, and what it can do for your skin….
“As a full time wedding photographer, and once upon a time Bride, I know exactly how important it is to get your skin looking as great as possible for your Big Day.”
“As a teenager I was lucky enough to escape the usual spotty phase – however – it came to strike me when I was in my late twenties….and I have struggled with adult acne ever since…..that is until I discovered Arbonne products.”
“Arbonne has been described in Vogue as “the next cult brand” – but because the company do not pay for advertising – they are still under the radar for most consumers….however, we do know that lots of celebrities that are paid to endorse other, more well known products – actually use Arbonne and go for Arbonne facials….enough said!!”
“I was introduced to the brand by a business associate – a celebrity events planner, just over a year ago, and loved the products straight away.”
“So….a year on – and I can honestly say I have not really had a single spot since about a month after starting to use the skincare range……its like a miracle!”
“I thought I had tried everything and used to end up on antibiotics at least once a year when I got to the end of my tether…”
“The Arbonne products are all botanically based – and have no nasty chemicals in – which it seems were probably partly the cause of my problems.”
“They are also ph correct – i.e. they have the same ph level as skin – so it doesn’t mess with your skins natural balance – and will in fact rebalance it after a few weeks.”
“Some people that think they suffer with oily skin or sensitive skin can find that once the skin has settled down…it actually isn’t – but the products used on the skin were making it that way.”
“One of the differences with Arbonne products is what they DON’T contain….no fillers….they have 100% active ingredients…the best selling dept store cream, has only 4%……thats a lot of nothingness you are paying for!”
“The filler most commonly used by lots of other brands is Mineral Oil – which on first reading sounds healthy and beneficial doesn’t it?”
“Its actually a by-product of the petrol-chemical industry….and is sold to the beauty houses to bulk out their products. Its also the second most ageing thing you can put on your skin…after the sun.”
“The Arbonne products also don’t contain any parabens. This substance is often used as a preservative as many shop sold products are made to sit on a shop shelf for up to 8 years.”
“As Arbonne products are all ordered online – they come straight from the manufacturer to your door. Parabens have been linked to breast cancer – and with that in my family, I was very pleased to find out that Arbonne also introduced a deodorant to the range last year too.”
“So…the skin care regime …its dead easy!! There’s an anti ageing range – suitable for anyone over around 25/30, dependent on your skin type.”
“This is the RE9 range, which has had independent clinical proven results in just 24 hours! It has 6 products – which sounds like a lot – but I can still get through them all in seconds, theres a cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, day cream and night cream – and then optional extras such as a neck cream, a lifting gel, and collagen support.”
“I’m on the lot and can honestly say that my skin has never been better!”
“And for younger skin or more sensitive skin there is the FC5 range, which has a cleanser / toner in one, a moisturiser, a night cream and an eye cream.”
“To get your bod, beach ready for the honeymoon, there is a fab home spa range – with body soaks / scrubs etc, a sun care range, and for those wanting to lose weight there are yummy protein shakes which can be used as meal replacement drinks.”
“All of the products are vegan.”
“And, not to miss out the Grooms, there’s a mens range too!”
