Sisters to Sons is excited to introduce the next spotlight in the MOM-preneur series! Jen R. is here to tell you all about ARBONNE (which I must say I use myself, and love!). Jen has tons of information for you and, trust me, you are going to want to read all of it…..and then try these products out for yourself and your family. Arbonne is a company that you can feel safe using from the outside in. Before I give too much away, take a look at my little Q&A session with Jen and be sure to enter her GIVEAWAY at the end!
Q:Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Q: Describe Arbonne in one sentence:
A: Arbonne is a vegan company that has pure, safe and beneficial skincare, cosmetics and nutrition products.
Q: Give us 5 Fun Facts about Arbonne!
1. Not such a fun fact fact but an important one. Have you ever heard of a rendering plant? Google it if you have a second….it’s where euthenized animals, leftover meat at the grocery store and road kill are taken, put in a big pot and boiled. All the fat that collects at the top is sold to companies to use as a “inexpensive filler” in everyday products we all use. Cosmetic companies are the main ones who use this. YUCK!!… but NOT Arbonne!
2. We have over 400 products for men, women and children.
3. All of our products are concentrated which means you don’t need to use a lot of them and they last a long time. The first time I bought the shampoo it lasted me 5 months.
4. The FDA does NOT regulate what goes into products, they only regulate that all the ingredients must be listed. Arbonne is formulated in Europe where there are over 1400 chemicals banned, where in the US there are only 10 banned.
5 It takes 26 seconds for a chemical put onto our skin to get into our bloodstream. These chemicals also get into the milk of a breastfeeding mom. (I’m still currently breastfeeding my daughter and it makes me feel good to know that the products I use day to day are safe for both of us).
Q: Why did you start using Arbonne products?
A: First, I’ve had two friends diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35. One of the things that was mentioned to them by their doctors was that breast cancer is only 10% hereditary The other 90% is what we put in our bodies and what we put on our bodies. This was very frightening to me. To be honest, I’ve never really cared or worried about the products I put on my body, I’ve always assumed what was on the shelves in stores was safe for me and my family. I was very wrong. I feel safe with Arbonne, however. Arbonne products have NO parabens, dyes, colors, gluten or mineral oil. They are a vegan company and have been around for 34 years. All products are pure, safe and beneficial.
The 2nd reason I began using Arbonne products is because my two year old son has eczema. Our doctor wanted us to use steroids on his skin twice a day and give him an allergy medicine every night. I was not okay with this. A friend told me that her daughter’s eczema had cleared up in about a week from the Arbonne baby line, I decided to try them out. I loved them! They are all natural and worked great and got rid of my son’s eczema! I threw away all the other Johnson & Johnson products(Aveeno) that I was using and now I only use Arbonne on my kids.
Q: Why did you decide to become an Arbonne consultant?
A: After I began using Arbonne products, I learned that if I tell my friends how much I love the products and get them to start using safer products on their families, I would get a check in the mail each month. This idea sounded fabulous to me! I got started last August and I really love it. Now, it’s like everything else in life. You get out of it what you put into it. When my kids are napping, I try and reach out to friends or family to either tell them about the products or plan a party. The great thing about Arbonne is that EVERYONE needs these products. Now trust me, I love a cute bag and necklace just as much as any other women out there, but I don’t NEED them.
Q: Can you give us a run-down on some of Arbonne’s Products?
A: Some of our products are shampoos, conditioners, body and face lotions, make-up and scrubs. We also have a whole fitness line, (which is personally my favorite) which consists of protein powder, fiber, fizz sticks, detox tea, cleanses and so much more. Our anti-aging is one of the BEST on the market. We have a new product called Genius – it’s a botanically based retinol and is amazing. It clears up acne, scars, age spots and fine lines. This is one of our most popular products.
Q: Why are you passionate about Arbonne?
I want to get these products into peoples’ hands. Everyone who tries them, loves them and wants to know more. Its not all about buying or selling these products, its about changing the way you shop and changing what kinds of products we all use so we make better decisions and keep our families healthy. I use to buy baby products at Target, vitamins and protein at GNC, shampoo and soap at Costco…it was crazy all the running around I did and how much money I spent on everyday products. Now I order direct online and have it all shipped right to my house at a discount….. and get paid for it!:).
When you become part of Arbonne, you become part of a team. We have monthly training meetings, where our top income earners are there to help us reach our goals, or even just help us learn about all of our amazing products. I get at least one text a week asking if I need anything and how other consultants can help me. Its such a nice feeling to start a business for yourself when you have so many people helping you and wanting you to succeed!
Q: How much money can you expect to make:
Like anything else in life, you get out what you put in. I have friends that are part of Arbonne that have replaced their husbands income. I also have friends that make a few extra hundred a month. Oh and also, once you reach the level of VP, Arbonne gives you a White Mercedes to drive!!:) You have to come to one of our monthly meetings and see how many of them are parked in the parking lot.
Q: How does the Arbonne Membership Work?
It’s like a Costco membership. You pay a small fee per year to shop at a discount. I shop at a 35% discount for all the products I use day to day. When I tell friends or others about these products and they decide to start using them, Arbonne sends me a paycheck. Then if my friend who loves Arbonne tells another friend and they start using the products, my friend and I both get paid. And the other really cool thing is that I also make a % of my personal sales. That’s right, when I order all the products that my family and I use each month, I get a paycheck. I GET PAID to order things I would normally buy at the store anyways!
Q: What are your five favorite Arbonne Products?
It is so hard to pick! I have many favorite, but these are the products I use the most!
