Barbara Matthews Consultant Independent Consultant
Hello, Santa Cruz, Hello World!
When my girlfriend gave me a skincare sample to try, I'd forgotten to take it with me on holiday. I'd not expected anything amazing, given how many times we're promised the moon in terms of results. But once I was home, I gave it a try. I noticed a difference in the appearance and texture of my skin in just a couple days. My husband, a programmer by profession, noticed a difference in 2 1/2 weeks and commented on it. Boy, did that pique my interest in who this company was, what they had to offer.  
I had been fit and active most of my life, and a vegetarian to boot, but years on the road in my corporate job and as a business owner took a toll on me mentally and physically. I was an avid runner, and enjoyed weightlifting and cross-training, but at one point, I thought I would be giving that up. Eight years ago, I discovered Arbonne. And though my introduction came by way of their skincare line, it was the fact that they also offered fitness and nutrition products that convinced me they really had something different. They advocated a healthy approach to your skin by offering products that helped inside and out. I’d been looking for a good, clean source of vegan protein that tasted good. I’d almost resigned myself that it wasn’t possible, until I discovered Arbonne. Their motto of pure, safe, and beneficial applies to every product they offer, and the fitness and nutrition products are no exception. I also wanted products that performed.
I started using the Arbonne fitness products and was quite pleased with my results. Then, I decided to step up my game. I wanted to run 3 half marathons within a 6 month period. All during my training, I used Arbonne vitamins, protein shakes and fiber powder, and then after that first race I decided to use Arbonne products as part of an elimination diet to really get healthy. Boy, was I impressed! Not only did my fitness improve, but I lost 11 pounds: that last bit of stubborn weight that would not come off no matter what I did. I wasn’t looking to lose weight, but I am so pleased with that result. I weigh what I did in high school, and people who bump into me can’t believe that I look even fitter than before. Even at a family reunion, my all my cousins told me that my husband and I looked the same as the last time they saw us, thirteen years ago!
I’ve had my Arbonne business ever since I first tried the products, and I’m so fortunate to have a team of people who shop with me, and many who also build a business with me by showing others how to switch brands and save. Some of my teammates are passionate about the makeup. Some are passionate about the skin care. Some, like me are passionate about all the products. Whatever your passion, if you are looking to make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you, I welcome you to take a look for yourself, and then talk with me about how Arbonne just might be the difference you are looking for.
