REVIEW: Arbonne Intelligence GeniusSonya Benham
For my latest experiment in anti-aging, I have added Arbonne Intelligence Genius to my nightly routine. This new product is totally unique. The 60-day supply comes with a container of scrubby pads along with an anti-aging solution. Pour the entire bottle over the pads and then use one each night after cleansing. After pouring the solution onto the pads, use them within 3 months to ensure optimal freshness.
The resurfacing serum contains their proprietary PBR+ complex. The letters stand for phytinol, bakuchiol, and retinoid. Phytinol is a blend of two botanicals, alfalfa and chickory, which improve skin tone and smooth the surface layer of skin. Bakuchiol is a plant-based botanical retinoid. The additional retinoid is created by science. Other active ingredients include mandelic acid to help aid in cellular turnover and bisabolol to calm and soothe.
Arbonne Intelligence Genius claims to improve skin suppleness, firmness, and elasticity after 2 weeks. In the clinical study, 100% saw and improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after 8 weeks of regular use.
I have really been enjoying using this product. The pads manually exfoliate while the retinoids work to resurface skin. However, unlike other products that speed cellular turnover, this product makes my skin feel super soft. In addition to PBR+, the Genius solution is packed with skin conditioning agents and emollients. My skin almost feels oily after applying the product, which concerned me at first. I break out easily but that has not been an issue. Instead the moisturizers absorb quickly and leave my skin feeling dewy and hydrated.
Try using them on the back of your hands and decollete as well as your face and neck. As with any retinoid product, be sure to use a product with sunscreen every morning.
