    The only con I can come up with about Arbonne is that they changed the formula of their Re9. But all cosmetic lines change stuff when you find something you love. Right?! I use all of the Re9 line both old and new. I like them both now. They are the only skin care line I have used that my face does not break out. My husband likes the mens line, I like his scrub better than the womens. If I had to choose an item that I could not go without, it would be my lifting gel. :)

    Arbonne vitamin and mineral supplement versus Centrum. Centrum is completely synthetic vitamin and powdered rock-based minerals Arbonne products are reported to be botanically based. The base might be botanical but the ingredients of many of the products are far from botanical. The vitamins in the vitamin supplements are almost all built - yes, built like Lego blocks - from coal tar or petroleum derivatives, just like Centrum. It's much cheaper to do this than to invest in research and development to come up with real botanical solutions. Other sources for the building blocks of vitamins are things like benzene, formaldehyde, and acetone. The minerals can technically be said to be natural because rocks and minerals are natural. The problem here is that they are not botanical, just like Centrum. This is an even more daunting financial mountain to research and develop a mineral supplement that has at least the RDA levels of all minerals from botanical sources. Yes, there are lots...

    2 years ago my mother talked me into trying Arbonne. i was hesitant, a little intimidated by the prices, that is until my husband and i sat down and actually crunched the numbers. We were surprised to find out that Arbonne can actually SAVE you money over time if you use them properly. most people OVERuse these products. it really doesn't take much! Anyways, i got over my fear and tried the Fc5 line. I fell in love! it was Gentle, smells great and made my skin feel fresh! Also i was pregnant at the time and started using the Re9 body cream, and i was very pleased to find that after delivering my 8 1/2lb bundle of joy i had NO stretch marks ANYWHERE. Also, the baby line is AMAZING, i took it with me to the delivery room and my sons first bath was with Arbonne. another lil tidbit= the herbal diaper rash cream works great on bug bites, poison oak, things like that. my last testimonial (i could go on all day) is the weightloss products. After having my son i gained 14 pounds that refused ... Read more

    Most of my clients love the new and advanced Re9, but there are some that really like the older products better. I have 2 of the older night creams and am happy to sell them to you at 40% off. I may be able to get other items as well. Contact me through my website if you are interested.

    I used Arbonne until they changed the formulation, that for so many years, they claimed was SO very wonderful. I agreed and paid a pretty price for it too. Why not just make a new line and keep the original line that so many people liked? I think you will soon see their stock dropping, if it hasn't already, since this new "improved" skin drying tubed stuff came out.

    Im an Arbonne Consultant since 6 months ago. When I start hearing about Arbonne I get noticed about how expensive they´re and that freaks me out. I try the FC5 kit ad in the first application I feel like I was burning and my face turns red. I continue ussing the kit for the three days then I sign up like a month after. When I start the bussiness I have very good sales because my motivation and because I was telling everyone I know. Three months after using the FC5 I cannt explain how much my skin have change. I got the same skin when I was in highschool! (Im 2yr University) no break out, so moisturized.. I use also the FC5 shampoo and conditioner and some months after some people where asking me what happen to your hair!!! My hair was glowing, more soft.. since 4 months I dont get a hair cut because my hair doesnt need it! I love ALL the FC5 line! From MAKEUP! I HATE MAYBELLINE!!!! the concialer causes that me eye area starts to be scrached!! and cost $9 @ Walgreens!! My concialer from... Read more

    I have rosacea and was hoping this product FC5 would be great, I was told it will be! My face has not adjusted, very red, it just may not be for everyone? The foot products are great. Why does Arbonne require you to give your social security number for the preferred customer status? I flat our refused, heck with the discount, I don't need my SS# flashing around. Anyone know why this is necessary? seemed kinda shady to me. Otherwise the consultant was a really sweet young lady.

    For those who think Arbonne is overpriced. Consider it is Swiss skin care, then take a look at La Prairie. You will see what Swiss skin care costs

    I am not an Arbonne consultant (or consultant for anything else, for that matter), but had a friend that became one and pushed everyone she knew to try it. Out of guilt, I gave in to some purchases. Previously, I had been gifted a bottle of Re9 and some day cream. The first thing I don't like about the packaging is that you cannot view the contents to see how much you have left. I accidentally dropped both of these at separate times and they cracked in the sink (just inches away). When I called a local consultant to get replacements, she referred me to the corporate office, who did nothing "without an original invoice" (which I didn't have because it was gift). I felt like they didn't back up their product at all. Being perimenopausal, I tried the ProLief cream. I have always had my period every 26 days, with no deviations EVER. After three months, I am ten days late (no chance of pregnancy), depressed, lethargic and have a strange vaginal odor. I am concerned enough to see m... Read more

    Notice all the great review are consultants. This is why.... I was an Arbonne consultant. I have an MBA and own an extremely successful small business. I tried Arbonne sales based on the information that was given to me by all of the consultants at a meeting. Everybody had sales through the roof, and everyone went from rags to riches. I quickly learned this was not true. The product is fair, but the set of face care retails for approx $300. Many people had reactions. I made nearly a $5000 investment, and did not sell 1 item. I own a salon and could sell water to a well, but I can tell you, this product is extremely overpriced, and the business is not for people that cares about others. The way it works, is the people elaborate on their success (they are told to say what you want to be and so forth) to get others to sign up. They make money on the false promises made to others. I have seen more people fail, and have honestly never seen anyone actually make it, (other than the... Read more

    I tried an Arbonne sample and had results almost over night. I haven't used anything else since. I have aging skin, prone to acne and very oily. After 3 months of using Arbonne my skin looks beautiful and I get compliments on it all the time. I became a consultant primarily because I wanted the consultant discount. To my surprise Arbonne gave me so much more. I love the people and the product. I've been reading here that many people have had problems with Arbonne affecting their skin. I can say from personal experience that most of the time when you use a new product you skin will react until it adjusts. Prior to Arbonne I had tried everything under the sun to try and get rid of my adult acne. I broke out every time. New products do that, they need time; that's all.

    CAUTION USING THIS PRODUCT - I tried this as a sample from a friend, the first day seemed okay, not too heavy and liked the scent, forgot the next day and then put it on 2 days in a row, my face started to burn and itch in patches, I now have patches that look like I was burned a bit, red, very flaky and itchy and sort of a burn feeling 3 days later, have not been to a doctor but may have to go -- good grief people, have tried a lot of products and NEVER anything like this, be careful new customers

    I give it a zero rating for the packaging. I think it is unsanitary for the box not to have a sealed clear wrapping on it. My order was not delivered directly to me. The other person could have put her fingers in my cream. You would think not but how do I know. Also I have NO receipt showing what I paid nor do I have the consultants name or phone number in case I needed to contact her.

    I am an Arbonne Consultant in sunny Australia. Within 4 months of becoming a consultant with Arbonne, I received the keys to my beautiful white Mercedes Benz...why? Absolutely AWESOME PRODUCT! Simple! I have NEVER had so many compliments on my skin...ever! My skin is glowing and healthy...and getting better every day! The product speaks for itself! Arbonne tests to zero irritancy and not only meets, but exceeds the standards of safety. The new Cosmetics lines and RE9 Advanced line is rather unbelievable...and 100% breathable. Occasionally, someone will not be able to tolerate Vitamin C...or a botanical...but this is rare and so easily addressed with good customer service. Arbonne has 30 years of research and development behind it. My wall of belief is so costumers are delighted! 45 day money back guarantee...what have you got to lose?

    I am an Arbonne consultant, and yes just like everybody else I was very skeptical and I didn't believe what I was hearing. I figured ahh what do I have to lose so I went ahead and bought the new advanced re9 line, I must say I am really impressed with their products. They might seem a little pricey however if you break it down its really not that expensive because the product will last a couple of months plus it is way better than the products in its price group. My face did break out when I first started using it because it was pulling out all of the impurities in my skin. I have also used the sugar scrub to shave my legs and let me tell you my legs have never felt so good!!!! Arbonne products are AWESOME and if you haven't tried them yet you are missing out. Really what do you have to lose? If you would like to order just go to

    I think Arbonne is not terrible because of the products but because I think Arbonne markets on false claims. Arbonne is NOT all natural. Everyone knows that. Go to and search for yourself. In the catalog, beside every product is a list of key ingredients. Of course, these key ingredients are all botanical and all natural. However, when you try to find the entire list of ingredients on the back of the products or even on the back of the box the products came in, you will have no luck! While there are many ingredients that aren't considered "unsafe", I uncovered plenty that have cancer causing elements, violations, restrictions, and warnings; organ system toxicity, irritation to skin, eyes, and lungs, contamination concerns... and the list goes on.

    I LOVE Arbonne products! I heard that they are having an event with TY KU alcohol in Chicago at Lincoln Park -- definitely trying to go to that and see what new products they are offering this year! Their Intensive Pro-Brightening Night Serum has worked wonders on my face!

    Ok, this is my frustration... Honestly, I've never heard of this line (Arbonne)before, believe it or not--just until a few months ago I heard about it. My sisters have never heard of it. But, I did go to a party with quite a few women there. The products do seem to to be pretty good--although, I've never tried them 'til literally a couple of days ago. I tried the 5 system skin care stuff.(Show's how much I know!!) I then had the "brain fart" of an idea... be a stay at home mom and sell something--Arbonne for instance. It's only when I go to the party and realize how terribly expensive all of the products are!! It blew me away. Sure they say the products last for a long time, but you still have to cough up bundles of $$ for it!! Seriously, I have a hard time coughing up $$253. for the set of skin care they offer. My opinion, to be able to sell this line of product you have to make darn sure you live in the area that you KNOW people can afford this stuff. And, you ha... Read more

    Arbonne Has Two New ENTIRE lines. Their Re9 Advanced line has been shown results within 24 hours and the new cosmetics line has Opti-light technology and is fast becoming a new beauty industry favorite! I want to start off by saying that I am an Arbonne consultant, and yes I am in a network marketing business and so yes I would love your business and yes I would love for you to join this business with me, however my BIGGEST thing that i would like you to know is that our products are really as amazing as anyone who uses Arbonne will tell you. I Love Arbonne and I honestly believe that their products are the best in the market and even if I was not a consultant I would still not use any other brand of product. So my review is to try the new lines, I think that you will find them to be amazing. You can go to and they can locate a consultant for you. or if you do have questions (I promise to answer them honestly, and never lie in my answer just for business) I would lo... Read more

    I've been using Arbonne for about three years now and couldn't be happier. A friend of mine was a consultant and she let me try out the Intelligence skin care line for a week. I did it just to go along, not expecting to be so impressed with the product that I signed up to be a wholesale consultant to get the 30% discount. (The system has since changed, and you can no longer sign up to be a consultant just to get the discount. Instead, you can sign up to be a preferred client for a 20% discount.) I felt an immediate difference in my skin - it was so much smoother and more radiant than it had ever been. I had used all sorts of over-the-counter skin care products for years and none made my skin look and feel as good as Arbonne. Though I was disappointed when they decided to discontinue the Intelligence line, I like the FC5 line which replaced it even better! It provides the same great results, only less steps (the toner and cleanser are combined) and more fruity, natural ingredients you c... Read more

    I just tried Nutri Mini C and after having all the product on before going to bed (I had it on maybe 5 min.) my face looked like I had a sun burn. Bad...I worked as a make up artist for a few years and have tried most all of the major products sold...Never have I had one burn my face. To clarify..I don't think it was the cleanser or toner that burned me was one of the creams. For $300 no one should have this issue unless you have majority sensitive skin problem...and I don't. Sorry Arbonne I am telling all my friends and family to stay away.

    I've been using Arbonne products off/on since 2006. There are some products I really like and have continued to order - then there are other products that I don't care for. The RE9 skincare line is actually pretty good. The skin rejuvenating cream from the Intelligence line I love to use on my face, scars and as a hair moisturizer. The eye shadows are actually pretty good as well, but I don't like the mascara or the foundations. I've noticed the foundations do not oxydize well, and turn darker and somewhat an orange color towards the end of the day. I signed up as a consultant, but do not market the products. I signed up to get the discount; which is a benefit for the items that I do order on a regular basis. As for the skeptics out there ... it does take time to see results as it would for most products. Also for those who speak down on MLM companies ... there are many companies out there that are legit and provide a quality product. I see Arbonne as one of them and I've nev... Read more

    I am a swimmer and use the sea source detox body wash and the 24h lotion. Let me tell you, nothing EVER gets the chlorine smell out, and anything that comes close is really harsh on skin that spends wayyyy too much time in chemicals as it is. The body wash gets the chlorine smell out of my body and hair (yes I do use the body wash on my hair and nothing bad has happened so far) The sea source lotion smells yummy and absorbs quickly, I don't feel oily or greasy after using it. They are a little spendy so I signed up as a "preferred client" It cost like 30 bucks and now I get a 20% discount and I don't have to sell it...I don't even like arbonne parties, where they try to get me to buy other products from the arbonne line...I prefer to buy online lol. I used their Intelligence line of facial care until they discontinued it. I tried the FC5 stuff and didn't like the results so now I use Boscia. I have never tried their make up and don't plan to...I love Bare Minerals and Benefit and j... Read more

    I tried a couple of samples of the FC5 line from Arbonne and, within days, I decided to start my own Arbonne business! Nothing has worked so well on my skin. Most other products either caused me to break out or dried out my skin. This is the first line that I have been able to actually USE! It is worth every penny. Plus, if you are on a limited budget, I can tell you how to get 20 - 80% off!!!! For those of you out there that found out you had an allergy to one of the natural ingredients, please remember that Arbonne offers a 45 day money back guarantee. You can return their products within this time frame for any reason if you are not 100% satisfied. Feel free to email me with any questions regarding the products or starting your own Arbonne business at [email protected].

    Hi, Arbonne's products are more because of the natural ingredients they use which make the products so wonderul and that's why they acutally work! I don't know if you have an account with Arbonne but if you don't I would suggest signing up and receiving a 20% discount every time you place an order. (There is no minimium amount per month, it's simply order as you need it) If you are interested you can sign up this month for FREE just by placing a $150.00 order (that total is before the 20% discount). I hope that helps and you continue to use Arbonne's products. I felt the same way and switched to other products but they didn't compare and it didn't take me long before I was backed to using Arbonne again. You can check out my website for further information at I would love to assist you any way I can.

    I am not a consultant, just a consumer and I also have extremely sensitive skin! I have tried everything from SkinCeuticals to Mary Kay and ended up with a mix and match skin care system. The first time I tried Arbonne my friend gave me some samples and I had a horrible reaction. I now believe that is because I tried all the new products at once. Recently my cousin gave me some samples (several years later) and my esthetician recommended that I changed one product at a time over several months. It has taken me a year, but now I am able to use most of the products including the primer (which is my favorite product). I would recommend that you not change all your products at once if you have sensitive skin, it might be to much for your skin to handle. By the way, the price is worth it. I have thrown away so many things that didn't work that I am sure I spent what Arbonne cost 100 times over. Jen PS. I have not tried the makeup just the Nutrimin C Re and the Primer.

    I used to use the Skinceuticals line (owned by the company L'Oreal)... It is clinically proven skincare system which i purchased at cost from my friend who is a Medical Doctor and owned a skincare clinic. I know that Skinceuticals are clinically proven to produce the results they claim on their bottle, which is why she sold them and used them in her clinic. But they are very expensive and personally i like the feel of Arbonne better. But I dont know if they produce the same result. i would reccomend either line as neither have parabens, (known to mimic the effects of estrogen in the body) and both are created by pharmaceutical chemists. (Aveda's chemist just went to Arbonne, by the way)... When you buy any full line it may seem like a large amount of money, but if you spend say, $300, and that set lasts you 4-6 months, that's really only paying $50-$75 a month. Most Americans weather they realize it or not spend lots of money on face creams, washes, etc... Trade in your numerous, slig... Read more

    I am 32 yrs old and have been using NutriMin C for about 2 months now, boy have I seen huge improvement already.... At first I was hesitant to use the product because it mainly says anti-aging, and I said I wasn't that old yet... but dang I look like 18 yrs old after just 2 mo of using... Wowowee!!!! My story actually started when I had a customer at work and I had to complement her skin and told her she had such radiance in her face... then she mentioned she uses Arbonne Cosmetics... and this was the start ...I am all hooked up.. i actually promote the product now that I so much believe in.

    I have used Arbonne's NutriMinC RE9 line for over a year now and absolutely LOVE it! My skin glows, I continually get comments on how my face looks, and it has absolutely taken 10 years off my 52-year old face. I do understand that there are people that have a reaction to just about anything -- the magnolia reference is a perfect example -- but personally I have yet to have a negative reaction nor do I plan on not using the products! Pricing is comparable to other high-end products, there is no mineral oil, no animal testing (really important to me!) and the bottles are sexy LOL.

    Fri Dec 26 2008

    I have been using the NutriminC RE9 line since June and have noticed a significant improvement in my skin. My brown spots have faded and my pore size has decreased. I have tried many different skincare lines ranging from high-end department store to over the counter like Oil of Olay. I have found out Oil of Olay as well as many of the expensive lines contain mineral oil. Arbonne products contain no mineral oil. Mineral oil is the second leading cause of aging, the sun being #1. It is like putting saran wrap on your skin. It traps all the toxins inside and doesn't allow the benefitial ingredients to be absorbed by the skin. This is easily demonstrated: buy a bottle of mineral oil at the drugstore along with a box of graham crackers. Put one cracker in a cup of mineral oil and one cracker in a cup of water. The one in the water becomes completely absorbed with water; the one in the mineral oil becomes hard as rock. What does that tell you? This could be another reason why ne... Read more

    I started using the NutriMinC line less than a week ago and yesterday I had to stop using it. I usually have pretty smooth skin and after using the product for only a few days my skin had breakouts everywhere all over my face. It was itching and burning after using it. It got so bad that I decided to go to a dermatologist in hopes they could help me identify the problem and help get my skin back to normal. They told me it was a reaction to Vitamin C (which is the main ingredient) and that it is a common reaction in many people. So before you buy this product, try samples first! I spent $200+ and now will never use it again. If this happens to anyone else, the dermatologist gave me cortizone cream and she said all the breakouts should subside within 48 hours.

    I am 53 (almost) and started using Arbonne as a recommendation from a friend who is a consultant and gave me samples. I have had oily skin my whole life and still get the occasional breakout. I am using the Nutrimin C9 and note the following after 3 weeks-skin looks healthy, glows and feels less oily. I have had rosacea/eczema for several years on my forehead and this definitely aggravates it a little bit so I am going to try using it every other day. The vitamin c may be what aggravating that condition. I get compliments on how good my skin looks and will continue this product until I run out. Then I will re-evaluate. I have been a long term retin A user and have had to back off from that product while using this regimen. I don't think their items are over priced-unless you are buying from CVS or Walgreens, they are certainly competitive with department store products. I have always purchased from Doctor quality lines so these prices seem about average in comparison. Nutrimin line is ... Read more

    I have been using Arbonne products for 2 years and am a consultant. I am an esthetician and know the ins and outs of the skin. When reading the reviews I was shocked to say the least about the lack of knowledge people have. We as consultants are educators, not sells people. When trying a new product it will take a month to see a change in the skin. If you have been using a product in the past that was not PH balanced then yes your skin will burn because you have already damaged your skins natural mantel barrier. If you continue to use the product for a week, it will go away. Arbonne is the ONLY skin care line that cancer patients can use. Which impresses me more than anything. The price of the products is very comparable to any high named Skin Care company, but with better results. Being in the Skin Care Industry for over 13 years, I know this because I have tried the best of the best. Since using Arbonne in my place of business, my clients have fallen in love with Arbonne and it is t... Read more

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I tried this product and was VERY impressed! My sister just got married this past Saturday and here latley my face has stayied so broken out! I work full time and go to school full time so I think a lot of it is just stress. I was so worried my face would be broken out (as usual) for the wedding. I tried a sample packet from my sister who got it from a sales person that gave it to her where she worked. In TWO DAYS my face was COMPLETELY cleared!!!! I've tried pro activ and severe acne treatments and found no luck anywhere! After my sample packet was finished I went back to my pro activ and the breakouts came back! I'm signing up for Arbonne today and If you think about it, this product is not that much more expensive than any other product. If it keeps my skin clear and beautiful ITS WORTH IT!!!!!!!

    I love Arbonne products. The NutriMin C RE9 line has been amazing for me and I have my mother (in her 50s) using it and it has made such a huge difference. A few people commented on having bad reactions to it...that's unfortunate but does happen with every skin care line. For the people who experienced a burning feeling - that should be because of the vitamin C, which is the main anti-aging ingredient. If you can handle the burning it usually subsides after a week or so and your skin looks great. It's just the skin adjusting the level of vitamin C. If not, (some very sensitive skin doesn't do vitamin C) the Intelligence line doesn't contain it and may be a better fit. Also, do NOT buy the products on ebay. These products are made with as few preservatives as possible and have a shelf life of two years. You don't know how long ebayers have had them whereas you get them in days of 'conception' from your consultant. The lack of preservatives is the reason for the SPF 8 in the ... Read more

    Arbonne is a multilevel marketing company that sells many products (remember Amway)..The products are terribly overpriced, as all the levels need to make a profit.  My friend got into the "business", and let me sample the skin care line.  Seven different items that supposedly all work together (who has the time?) for hundreds of dollars! I use Regenerist products from Olay, recommended by my dermatologist, for hundreds less!To be fair to my friend, I tried the products for a week, and didn't see any difference or improvement over my Regenerist by Olay products..

    The packaging is faulty. I have found the pumps to stop working on many of the products and the gold leaf paint on the caps flake off and cover your hands and face with gold specks. The faulty pumps make it difficult to get the product out of the bottles. Arbonne really needs to rework their packaging. The representative told me the packaging was state of the art and allowed the product to be dispensed at an amount that would make the product last for 6 months. The serum ran out very quickly. Some of the products last awhile while others run out in a couple of months. Also the day cream has an SPF of only 8 which by todays standards is too low. It should have an SPF of 15 at least. I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin on my face the first month or so but after 6 months my skin has gotten accustomed to the product and I am not that impressed. The product hasn't kept up with the times. There are new anti-aging ingredients that have been developed which are not in Ar... Read more

    I am a 24 year old female who has been using the intelligence line for 9 months and love it. My sister sells the stuff and totally has me hooked. I tried the NutrimenC line (the orange one) but it was too much moisture for me (I'll probably graduate to that in a decade or so). Then I tried the acne one and maybe it would have cleared me up but it made my face feel sticky and not clean. BUT the intelligence line has been a dream. I hardly break out anymore (the occasional PMS blemish), and the quality and texture of my skin has greatly improved. Even my boyfriend has noticed how great my skin looks and feels. I actually just moved to dry Colorado from humid north Florida and my skin hasn't had a problem adjusting. I recommend this line to all of my girlfriends this age as early prevention. What a great line for 20-somethings! I also use some other minor stuff (christmas presents, etc.). As for the cost, yes it's a bit pricey, but most good skin care lines are. I feel my body is worth th... Read more

    For the ones that say that the Arbonne resp should be ashamed. Are you out of your minds? They Are not reps they decided to sell it because they loved it, they don't work for the company, the sell the product because they believe in it, because is great for them. The ones that talk like that are just bitter jealous people that like to start controversy,live and let others be!

    I will openly admit that I just recently signed up as as Arbonne Consultant. THAT IS SIMPLY BECAUSE I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE PRODUCT. I have extremely sensitive skin and I am able to use very few product lines. I find it incredibly ignorant that certain reviews I've read are based on someone trying a product, for example on their small child who has eczema and complaining that the child blew up like a balloon. One of the 1st things any new consultant is taught in Arbonne's very extensive training is that the best place to do a skin patch test is on the back and top of your arm and one uses a very small amount of product and places a band-aid over it. As I have such sensitive skin I barely have to test a product to know if I will have an allergic reaction. And yes I have had absolutely extreme reactions to very expensive, high quality products. I care about the way I feel too much to use something without patch testing it. I can't imagine a moderately intelligent adult using so much o... Read more

    I bought into this product through a rep at work. She told me it was totally hypoallergenic. It made my skin feel great but there is something it the RE line that made my eyes go insane. Stopped using it but the damage was done and it took 3 weeks of back and forth to the opthamologist and two bottles of steroid drops to fix my eyes. It is definitely not hypo allergenic

    I think one thing people should remember is that our faces are all different and will have different reactions to substances, including plants. I know many people who love magnolias. They're a plant, they're pretty and they small nice. They make me sneeze, develop a migraine, and generally make me feel like I have a bad sinus infection. Aloe, a seemingly "safe" ingredient, causes me to develop red, itchy skin. Therefore, when having a reaction to a product that is botanically-"based" (not purely botanical - there is a verbage difference), request a list of ingredients and take it to either your pharmacist (schooled in chemicals and substances) or your doctor, and request they investigate which substance is causing your reaction. (My pharmacist informed me that I have a severe allergy to phenylthyazine found in anti-nausea meds and codeine!) It may not be the Arbonne "product" overall causing negative side effects, but rather a natural ingredient in the list. I, too, am an Arbonne... Read more
