Meet Arbonne: The Beauty Closet's Latest Top Beauty Brand Pick!
Meet Arbonne! The Beauty Closet's top beauty pick to help bring in the New Year :) Why is it at the top of my list? It starts with how it was founded: Petter Morck developed the company in the mid-70's by gathering up some of the world's leading biochemists, biologists, and herbalists to help fulfill his vision. Arbonne focuses on providing skincare products that were founded on botanical principles and they have grown quite a bit since then through a widespread network of Independent Consultants. The company has also pledged on providing environmental options: from their logo, statement of purpose, tree planting program, product packaging, and more- and they continue to maintain a commitment to being environmentally-conscious.
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
Intelligence Genius Ultra
*pricing @ arbonne.com w/bonus RE9 Advanced Serum + Lifting Eye Cream!
Be sure to check out the 2 bonus items that are included in this awesome kit from Arbonne that comes with the Genuis Ultra- you can snag all 3 @ the above pricing through an Arbonne Independent Consultant or by being an Arbonne Preferred Client - that's a 40% discount off of the SRP of this Arbonne Special Value Pack :) The pricing is a tad bit more than some might want to pay and I could totally understand that- but I'm also the type of gal that will drop a decent chunk of change if I've got it to spare on a beauty product or item, if I know that it's worth the price! When it comes to the Genius Ultra, it meets that requirement with ease. It's super easy to use and doesn't require you to be any sort of expert to complete the process.
I would advise starting out with charging the unit to it's full charge capacity [you can tell if it is, once the logo remains fulling lit- the light will turn off however, when its unplugged/no longer charging or when not in use] although I only had to charge it around 30 mins. when it arrived. Once the Genius Ultra reaches a 30% charge , it will blink- although it still can be used. You do have the option of plugging the charging cable into a 2.0/3.0 usb port or you can utilize the adapter that comes with the charging cable and will allow you to charge the unit in the typical wall outlet.
There are 3 heat options of: 89.6 F, 93.2 F, & 96.8 F that can be utilized by pressing the comfort button on the Genius Ultra once, twice, or three times for ea. option. Each level coincides with the appropriate LED light level as well, so you can actually have idea which level you've put the unit to. As the eye area does tend to have more sensitive skin [I recommend as the instructions also advise, to use the lowest heat setting in this area], I would recommend as the instructions do to avoid using the unit directly on the eye or eyelid, however you can use the Genius Ultra underneath the eye, around the lips, forehead, and other areas of the face! By positioning the tool on top of the area where you have just applied your skincare product and then moving in small circular motions, you will get the best results.
What's really great abut the Genius Ultra, is that it automatically turns off after one minute to let you know that you can stop using the tool in that area and then gently pat in the remaining skincare product that you have left, on your skin. It does arrive nicely boxed and the inner box can be used as a storage box for the unit as well. A warranty of 1 yr. from defects and workmanship issues is included from the original date of purchase and there is a customer service number if need any assistance , but it isn't a toll-free number- you can fill out an online customer service form too though, to avoid this.
As an added perk, if you do decide that the Genius Ultra is not for you, a return within 45 days from the purchase date for a full refund or replacement from Arbonne is an option. One downside- you can't use the unit around water and must ensure that it does not get submerged in water or be used around a shower/tub. When it comes to the results? I've seen a major improvement in the overall effectiveness of my skincare products and it's definitely boosted my overall daily skincare regimen. I absolutely LOVE this tool and I'm glad I was able to snag one- it's become my fav new go-to beauty tech tool! It's also the perfect companion to the other awesome Arbonne skincare items- be sure to check out my review of the 2 products that come with this fantastic tool as a Value Pack, as I will be getting that up on Sunday :)
