Arbonne FC5 Ultra-Hydrating Hand Cream

Arbonne International products are sold online or by representatives who work out of their homes. Until a few months ago, I had never been introduced to Arbonne. Then, through a jewelry connection, Jaime Appenzeller found me. She lives a long drive from me (and I hate our area traffic), so she kindly sent me some samples to try. I'll be telling you about them, starting today.

I really like the Arbonne FC5 Ultra-Hydrating Hand Crème ($18)! This is the perfect time of year to be protecting your hands, and this hand crème has been much appreciated. Thank you, Jaime!

Made with fresh kiwi cell extracts and Arbonne's trademarked Moisture Fresh Complex, this hand crème is lightweight and smells divine. It soaks right into my skin, leaving behind a very light, almost undetectable feel and a fruity-fresh fragrance. It's a very pleasant way to protect your hands!

The Moisture Fresh Complex is a unique blend of botanicals, including St. John’s Wort and extracts of cucumber, birch leaf, watercress, and clover blossom. Arbonne's research shows that together with the other ingredients, this complex helps to soften, cool, soothe, and condition dry skin.

Arbonne uses premium botanical ingredients for their personal care products, which are vegan-certified. Their formulas are never tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients or animal byproducts. Not only that, they do not contain formaldehyde-donating preservatives, petroleum-based ingredients (benzene, mineral oil, petrolatum, phthalates, toluene), or PABA. The products are formulated in Switzerland, but made in the United States.

You can find an Arbonne representative near you by visiting this link. Or, you can give Jaime a shout at

I also found this product on Amazon for $13.95 (sold by California-based Blumonga Trading). Isn't Amazon amazing? Of course, you don't get a personalized consultation or free samples that way.
