Arbonne rep here

I am an Arbonne rep, but probably not for much longer.

I think I've been signed up for about 3 or 4 years now. I always used the Biomatte Oil Free!! Loved it!!

But the new skin care line just does not work for me, I think I'm allergic to it. I ended up with a dried up looking red rash of sorts.



I do very much love their holiday products, and the salt scrubs



Really I only signed up for personal use. You may have read in my introduction thread, that I am a horrible HORRIBLE sales person

I have exzema and I have to watch the skin care products I use because some brands cause the red rash you are talking about. That was the reason I started in DS to find a skin care product I could use. Just wanted to let you know you are not alone.

I first noticed my allergy with Mary Kay products. I always have had oily skin, and after using MK I was using alot of moisturizers to try and fix what the cleansers and such were doing. It actually took me a month or better, and buying more products, to figure out that it was causing the problem to be worse.

And then on vacation, I started getting that same red rash at the pool....

And then I realized, I was allergic to the Suntan Oil! And both the Suntan Oil and the MK contain Mineral Oil. So that is also how I ended up trying Arbonne, because I was told it contained no Mineral Oil.


But whatever is in the new Intelligence line, gives me the same result as Mineral Oil products.

Wow, there must be another ingredient that your skin is allergic to as well. Again, I'm just a personal use rep so I'm not versed in the products. I have used the NutriMinC line for about the last year and I LOVE it.

My skin has lost so much of it's red tones and my dryness/fine lines have decreased as well.

Maybe talk to someone to figure out what ingredient may be common in the products.

Hello Amy,

It was MK that did it to me also over 25 years ago. It was the mineral oil. My doctor told me to avoid that and I have not had a problem since. I have not tried Arbonne yet although I have alot of friends who sell it. I love the Avon products and have not had a problem with them.

You might want to take a container of the product to your doctor and ask them if there is anything they see right off that would cause the rash. They might be able to help. I will try to ask one of my friends who sell the products if they might know.
