Holiday Gift Guide: Give the Gift of Perfect Skin! {Giveaway}


This holiday season give the gift of perfect skin (or pretty darn close to perfect) with Arbonne’s Genius. I have been using Genius for the past 60 days and I can attest that this product lives up to its promise!

Read on to learn more about how Genius works and for your chance to win your own Intelligence Genius.


Genius is intended to improves the overall look and feel of skin texture to restore a healthy, radiant glow to dull skin. It is also designed to:

  •  reduce the look of dark spots
  • reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • provide the appearance of smooth, even-toned skin texture
  • show significant improvement in skin clarity and blotchiness

Nightly Resurfacing Pads are paired with a fresh-pour solution containing Arbonne’s dynamic proprietary PBR+ complex with Phytinol™, botanicals and retinoid. But what does all that mean?

Let’s take a closer look:

Proprietary PBR+ Complex combines science and nature to provide visible results in as little as two weeks:

  • P = Arbonne proprietary high-performance complex
  • Phytinol™ combines two botanical extracts, alfalfa (Medicago sativa) extract and chicory (Chicoriumintybus) extract, which work synergistically to help promote improved skin tonicity and surface smoothness for an even, less-lined look, to fight the visible signs of aging.
  • B = Delivers botanical Bakuchiol, a plant retinoid.
  • R = Delivers scientific Retinoid.
  • Mandelic acid helps encourage cell turnover at the skin’s surface for bright, even-toned skin, while bisabolol helps provide calming, soothing comfort.


While the above information is helpful to understand exactly what is going on to make Genius so effective, it’s usually more helpful to hear from someone who has used it and who has had positive results.

After just seven days of using Arbonne’s Genius, I received my first compliment on my skin from someone who was not aware I had started a new regimen. And I noticed the change too. For years I suffered from dry, reddish skin around my nose. And within the first few days this disappeared!

After about 14 days, I noticed a plumper feel to my skin and a reduction of fine lines around my eyes. After the first 2 weeks I noticed my pores were becoming less clogged. I looked at it much like a facial: it first cleans the dirt and grime out, causing it to come to the surface but after a few more days this cleared up.

Upon completion of the 60 day regimen, I am thrilled with my skin. Though not perfect (this is partially due to genetics and environment)  I was happy to notice a more toned look with a nice, even colour, minimized facial lines and zero dry skin patches.

Overall I would describe my results as more youthful looking skin with a sort of brightness to it. I have one sunspot that has slightly lightened in colour too which is tough to achieve and this speaks volumes on the product.

I recommend trying the Arbonne Intelligence Genius if you are looking for an easy, non-invasive solution to fine lines, uneven skin tone, clogged pores and dry skin.
