ARBONNE: CLEAR CONTROL, GET CLEAN HEALTHY SKIN IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS FEAT. THEIR CLEAN CONTROL PRODUCTS REVIEW !



HEY BEAUTIES! 

I've always been a fan of Arbonne, the brand itself.  Can you believe they've been in the beauty market for about 35 years! That's definitely a long time. I reviewed their make-up range a few months back and if you missed out, you can check it out my other Arbonne post hereI am so glad that they also stock skincare products as I was so curious to check their Clear Control products out. Find out below on how to get healthier looking skin in just 3 simple steps. 

The new Arbonne Clear Control skincare range is for those who suffer from blemishes and want to really look to rid acne, make skin feel cleaner and healthier. It's really easy to follow the skin-care regime as it has been dermatological tested and also consist of elements that are acne fighting formulas that help to clear skin and prevent any new blemishes from forming. The collection is made to reduce acne-causing bacteria, control your skin's sebum and minimise any skin flare up. 

The Arbonne Clear Control has been created for teens and adults suffering from frequent breakouts and are looking for clear and healthier skin. One thing about the Arbonne range is that it contains ground breaking technology with salicylic acid which is the main ingredient for acne. The acne care is formulated without any harsh ingredients and chemicals which is also good to know. Each formula gently exfoliates, clarifies and looks to calm the skin. 

My skin's situation is that I occasionally get a few blemishes near my forehead, chin and near my nose area. This really comes down to your diet or could be simply of trapped dirt underneath your skin that you might not be aware of. Nevertheless I put the Clear Control by Arbonne skin care range to the test for a few weeks to really see whether it cleared my complexion and reduced the amount of blemishes surfacing onto my skin. 

For those who don't know Arbonne International, their products are vegan friendly, formulated without gluten, are all dermatologist tested and most of all are allergy tested safe. Check out their official page at www.arbonne.com

Most of the Arbonne products are formulated without any synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, proplene glycol, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, animal-derived ingredients, benzoyl peroxide, formaldehyde-donating preservative. It's good to know that the products are all super gentle to use on skin and this is important when it comes to selecting what is the best acne skincare products there are in the market. 

For those wondering what ARE the main key ingredients they are: 
  • Salicylic acid with keratolytic activity which has been proven to reduce acne.
  • Witch hazel which acts as an antioxidant 
  • Licorice root extract and wild pansy extract which is what looks to calm and sooth acne-prone skin. 
  • Rosa roxburghii fruit extract and lyceum barbarum fruit extract which acts as skin conditioners. 
My overall impression of using these Arbonne Clear Control skincare products is that they made my skin feel so smooth and cleaner afterwards. The product did not irritate or cause any redness to my skin which was a great aspect to using these products. I saw less signs of redness and blemishes to my skin so this definitely helped my acne-prone skin. They say that there are certain foods that contribute to you getting blemishes such as eating oily and fatty foods. So be sure to balance your diet whilst also using the Clear Control kit if you're wanting to treat those blemishes on your skin and rid the redness away!

STEP 1: CLEANSE 

ARBONNE, CLARIFYING BLEMISH WASH

This Clarifying wash is made so it can really look to penetrate your pores and assist your skin in keeping those breakouts right under control. It's a very deep cleansing type of wash which is completely soap-free and it also contains salicylic acid and also a soothing botanical element which makes exfoliation super gentle and your skin doesn't feel irritated. This wash helped my skin in terms of clearing out my pores on my skin thoroughly. After washing, I could feel my skin was cleaner and smoother. 

What's great about the 103ml tube is that it's convenient to pop into the shower and would be ideal to use whilst in the there. Before I use this clarifying blemish wash, I would simply remove ALL of the make-up I would have on my face and then look to massage my face with a small pea sized amount of the cleanser. Look to massage this all over your face for a good 4-5 minutes before looking to rinse under lukewarm water. Amazing wash for if you're wanting to treat your skin against acne and breakouts. 

POSITIVES: 
  • Deep cleansing. 
  • Soap-free wash.
  • Contains salicylic acid.
  • Gently exfoliates skin without irritation, 
  • Penetrates deep into pores. 

NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch!

STEP 2: TONE

ARBONNE, CLARIFYING BLEMISH TONER 

This is an alcohol-free type of toner which looks to remove any excess surface oils on your skin and also gently exfoliates skin. When applied after the cleanser, it helps to reduce irritation and any redness on the skin. I found that when I used the toner, it helped to remove the oils on my skin that was on the surface. By using a cotton pad, I would make sure that I cleanse my skin thoroughly before applying. I didn't experience any dryness to using this toner as I've only used it once a day. You can look to increase this to twice a day but only if your skin isn't too sensitive. Otherwise this was a good quality toner which definitely looked to clean any surface oils on my skin and around my pores. It's important to use a toner because it looks to keep your skin clear and clean. 

POSITIVES: 
  • Alcohol-free toner. 
  • Removes excess surface oils.
  • Gently exfoliates skin. 
  • Keeps your skin clean and clear. 

NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch! 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

STEP 3: CONTROL

ARBONNE, CLARIFYING BLEMISH LOTION

What the Clarifying blemish lotion does is that it looks to clear any acne blemishes and also prevent any new blemishes from forming.It's also made oil-free so it won't make your skin feeling oily or uncomfortable. The lotion looks to clarify your skin and gives it a shine-free, matte complexion. I love the whole matte-look and I was amazed to see how matte it made my skin look. I felt that the lotion made my skin feel very calm and relaxed after the whole cleansing and toning process. I got no irritations from using this lotion so for me this product worked. 

How I would use this lotion is to make sure you cleanse your face thoroughly, likewise in step 1. And by using your fingertips, make sure you cover the affected areas with a thin layer twice or once daily. I would say if you're new to this skincare regime, start with applying a thin layer once a day because excessive drying may occur if you apply too many layers on. Nevertheless, the lotion is helping your skin to clear and blemishes and clear the complexion which will give you the matte-look. 

POSITIVES: 
  • Clears blemishes and prevent any new blemishes from forming. 
  • Matte-look. 
  • Oil-free product. 

NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch! 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 



OPTIONAL: TARGET SPOT AREAS

ARBONNE, CLARIFYING CALMING CREAM

The Calming cream is a high performance cream which is made to clear the skin of any existing breakouts and also look to balance our your skin's balance to prevent any new blemishes from forming. I would say this is similar to an anti-spot treatment where you apply onto the areas which are acne prone and or are showing signs of breakouts and redness. What this cream will do is that it will target the blemish area and kill the bacteria underneath the surface of the acne. I applied this onto my acne that was really bugging me one day and then after a day or two, my acne was completely gone and the area looked cleaner and less red. I love how the cream did not dry out my skin which was good. One thing I would definitely recommend is that if you're stepping out into the sun after applying the Clarifying Calming cream, be sure to use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing as this product does contain salicylic acid which may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun which can have the possibility of sunburn. So make sure to protect your skin guys! 

POSITIVES: 
  • High performance cream. 
  • Clears skin of any existing breakouts.
  • Balances your skin. 
  • Prevents any new blemishes from forming. 
  • Does not dry out the skin. 

NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch!
