Arbonne SUCKS!

Issue not resolved

I hosted a party for Arbonne in my home...everyone LOVED the stuff so I TOO wanted to try it out.I used it all over my face, hands, feet etc at the party, I now, am broken out, HUGE pimples everywhere on my face and chest and it SUCKS.

I NEVER break out, ever. and the sales lady said OH NO WORRIES nobody is allergic to our stuff, ***. why am I broken out everywhere???

I just do not understand why it happened, two other grls at my show who used it also broke out and are having the same pimple problem.never using this *** again

I was given an Arbonne body wash and body scrub a few years ago for a gift. The scrub was ok, but it made my shower slippery. My real issue was with the body skin broke out in a rash all over. Once I realized it was the body wash, I stopped using it and my rash went away. I don't know what's in the body wash, but I've never broken out from bath and body items EVER before. I will not purchase Arbonne...I do not trust this brand for my personal use.

You broke out because your skin was was probably the first time you put healthy anti-oxidants on your skin. Next time run apple cider vinegar to soothe any burning and coconut oil to heal the bumps ;)

I am appalled. I am disgusted. I am frustrated.

My best friend wanted to get into the Arbonne business because she wanted something in her life to give her fulfillment. Something she thought God was leading her towards. Something she thought was going to be a positive in her life. Something that could give her success and fulfillment.

Before she went on-board she went to the training, met the women and researched Arbonne. Ultimately, after several weeks of considering, listening and praying, she decided this was her opportunity.

She was 100% enthusiastic and was 110% devoted. She aligned herself with a Regional Vice President in who initially took her under her wing for the first three weeks.... then soon to be found that words do not necessarily align with actions. A double edged sword was yielded. Two mouths opened and not one making any sense over the other and certainly not coming together in alignment.

This Regional Vice President is self-conscious and a control-freak. If you are a supposed 'big shot' and a 'mentor' and a 'Regional Vice President' and if you are growing your business relying on others to come into your team to make you successful.....then grow up, be mature, accept all personalities, accept all people, learn how to be a team leader, take some leadership courses, take some life courses, take some managerial courses, learn how to coach, learn how to be supportive. You are supposed to be an

That's too bad, however the consultant who told you that "no one is allergic to our stuff" is an ***! Arbonne products are made from fruits, vegetables, plants etc...I know a lot of people who are allergic to certain types of fruits, vegetables and plants!! Sorry to hear that you are allergic to the products and hope you found something that works for you.

Just want to say whatever you are buying for your skin is sold by a company that wants to make the fact that you all think people who sell arbonne are in a cult and don't care about anything other than money is ridiculous....the difference with stores that sell products have lots of other costs involved so you are getting ***...which you brilliant people think are great! Makes me :grin when I read this...Arbonne actually was in an independent study and was voted number 1 against other MLM and also the leading department store you honestly think those drug store/department store people are experts....The Arbonne consultant I dealt with did more research on my son than any dr. or "expert" if you will....and as for experts...better do your research on that as well.....I did take my son to a Duke dermatologist and they put me on 4 medications for his allergies/skin issues....which lead to a skin disease...which are side effects from the medications that they put him on....which after researching the ingredients cause the issue to worsen.....and after skeptically trying Arbonne cleared him up...this was after a 3 year struggle going from dr to dr...and yes...these "***" products as you say cleared him up.....although I don't think it is for every single person out there....I am thankful that someone was nice enough to think of me and ask me to try one forced me to try...

Are you a consultant, or a customer?
Arbonne consultants do many good things but for all of the good people there are many many more bad and greedy people. I Am so happy that Arbonne has helped you but it also hurts many families financially. I believe that Arbonne is very much cult like. I'm sorry but just is. It takes a certain type of person to be successful in Arbonne andthequalitiesof the successful people I have seen have been bad. I think I know of one good genuinly good person in this area. Anyways, this blog is for people who have complaints and its a really good place to vent valid concerns.

ARBONNE is such a has synthetic sooo turned off by the pushy sales pitch it makes me want to run from them. I never met anyone so is a horrible approach. These ppl arent even skin therapist...they all just want to make $ sad....if you care about good skin care go to your local skin therapist who sell Comseceutical skincare! It so sad that the public is so easily fooled! Arbonne is a CULT. no dount

Arbonne consultants start out as normal people but the thought of success turns them into greedy, unethical Monsters. They are trained to stalk people. It's actually really scary to watch. They know their product is mediocre at best but they don't care because it's all about money and not at all about the skin care.
I hate Arbonne and I definitely don't want those types of people in my life.

Actually Arbonne breaks you out at first because it gets all of the impurities out of your skin from anywhere to 2-6 weeks after that your skin is clear you should use a product for longer before you write a review.

No really Al. If the reaction causes severe pimples then there is something wrong. I work as a skin expert for a few companies and it is common for a litte reaction in some. But if it is big it is something more. I looked at the ingredient list of ARbonne and it can be drying and can cause breakouts. It is not natural and there are quite a few chemicals in it right now. Good luck but to wait 6 weeks in not right. 2 weeks max for a minor irritation. This above sounds like a allergic reaction.

I have very sensitive skin. and I think the reason is that she's using waaaay too much product. also, as a smart consumer you should always spot test a product before using. especially if you're using it on your entire body.

Basically it has chemicals in it and it's not natural. I have oily skIn and also
had a reaction. it is called Swiss heritage now and not Swiss formulated. So it
Doesn't follow any strict rules since the product is made in California.

I only use things on my skin that I can eat. Your skin absorbs everything to the
Blood. I don't need BHA or other molecules going in

I feel so sorry for you right now. I remember feeling exactly the way you do, I defended Arbonne at all costs for 4 years, but I have to tell you that is what happens when one has bee brain washed into someone else's CULT. Be careful because marriages breakup over this company. Your wife's paying her VP's pay cheque. I hope you don't wait too long to realize they are pulling the wool over your eyes. Good luck. I hope your wife is successful.

I agree. Pele are allowed to state their opinion and buddy it's all bad where Arbonne is concerned. I hope your wife has a thick skin, and I hope she is pushy or you will be thousands of dollars in the hole. Arbonne is really starting to suck and the vps do too.

Ok,didn't Arbonne go through Chapter 11 in 2010 and you say others are scammers?????? Excuse me but Arbonne had 850 million debt which when the bank took over and the debt is still over 250 million. So do you think just because the bank saved the company( ARbonne executives mismangage the funds) that ARbonne is so great. The country's economy has to swallow that 550 million and do you think that is good. ARbonne is an ok line but the organic lines and other vitamin lines are much better. ARbonne has not had any money put into R & D in years because of the debt. So they are behind in the technology department. Glad that no one with your wife's team had a reaction. If other people post then that is their story. What would you know about skincare dude. If you don't like what is being said then go prospect more for your wife. This is a free country and forum and people are allowed to post. ARen't you calling the kettle black by calling others scammers. ARbonne is not in 2006 where they had 900 million in sales. In 2011 the sales were a little over 300 million. The company only made a bit of profit since they are still in the red. They are not debt free. So go to your Discover Arbonne meeting and make it happen. Let others be who they are.

I have a feeling that the entire point of this negative thread is to defer people from arbonnne for personal gain. No one my wife knows in two years has broken out. People try to bash arbonne once they realize the stuff they sell dosent make as much sense as they initially thought.

candles, jewelry, organic food companies don't pay near as well as arbonne and their products aren't something people use daily or monthly then need to buy more. Fortunatley most people reading these negative comments see through the scammers here.

Geez, I never would have considered coming on a site to complain about a product that didn't work on my skin.. :roll I have tried expensive products from Macy's and such, and some worked and some didn't. I have problems finding a eyeliner that doesn't slide into my eyes by the end of the day. But I don't think it is the fault of one particular company or brand. I just have oily eyelids.:cry It seem's there is a underlying issue other than just not being happy with a product, as Arbonne offers free returns within 45 days. It doesn't take 45 days to find out if your gonna have problems with a product. And the return ship is a small price to pay for getting to try someone's product for 45 days before you return it. You just can't make all the people happy. Like the one who complains she purchased over 800 dollars of product and apparently used them for some time, in her own words she used it for over a month, and then complains she has to pay return shipping. :x
