Anita: What are your top 5 favorite beauty products and why?
Adriana: 1. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Celluar Renewal Masque: I’m totally addicted to this masque. As we age, it becomes necessary to move from a friction peel to an exfoliating enzyme peel and that’s exactly what this masque is. 2. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Restorative Day Creme: I don’t leave the house without putting on the day crème. It includes anti-aging botanicals, plus SPF, to protect my skin from the sun’s rays, something I definitely need living in Southern California. 3. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Creme: Are you sensing a theme here? I have two small rambunctious small children, not to mention two dogs, and the eye crème is a must to help with warding off dark circles after a long day at work and a sleepless night. Don’t get me wrong; I love my life….it’s just 24/7 these days, right? Your skincare has to keep up with that pace, too. 4. Revelage Intensive Pro-Brightening Night Serum & Revelage Age Spot Brightening Day Ceam with SPF 20: I sometimes substitute the anti-aging skincare regime above with the our high performance, state-of-the -art brightening products. During the dry, winter months, especially, I love to use this dynamic duo of Revelage serum and day cream to brighten up my complexion. 5. Arbonne Cosmetics Sheer Glow Highlighter: Speaking of Highlighting, this is one of my very favorite products! This versitile formula adds an instant glow when and where you need it….such as adding a few dots and dabbing on the upper cheek bone and brows, it’s a quick and easy way to add just an accent to your makeup that lights up your face.
Anita: All of these Arbonne products sound amazing! Okay… what are your favorite non-brand beauty products?
Adriana: (Laughs) Does a Coffeehouse Mocha count as a beauty product?! How about cheese curls? Well, these make me feel good so hopefully they help me look good, too. I may live on empty calories, but when it comes to taking care of looking my best, I figured the best possible makeover would be on board as Arbonne’s CMO!
Anita: My favorite question: What is your favorite shade of Red Lipstick?
Adriana: Arbonne Cosmetic’s Strawberry Lipstick: The red matches my skin tone perfectly – and it’s great for those rare nights out on the town with my husband.
Anita: I love Strawberry! I alternate Arbonne’s Runway Red with Strawberry and it’s very hard for me to put them down and test other Reds! – okay….next question, if you only had 5 minutes in the morning, what beauty products would you use?
Adriana: I’ve got a whole five minutes to get ready?! I’d have to be dreaming because that’s at least two minutes more then usual at my house! I’m usually running out the door after a quick application of our anti-aging hydrating day cream, makeup primer, a shot of volume spray for my hair and some lip polish. If I ever get those extra two minutes, I might add some neutral eye shadow, a tad bit of foundation and blush.
Anita: Last question: Last minute perals of wisdom?
Adriana: It’s all about Prevention. That’s why we’re seeing women (an men) in their 20s use anti-aging skincare in order to help ward off the signs of aging before they appear. We take that one step further and have a synergistic, inner and outer approach to anti-aging with skincare and a supplement. The best part of my job is helping people see that younger healthier looking skin lets your inner beauty shine through! Whoever you are and whatever you do, you’re beautiful, so don’t be afraid to let it show.
Anita: Thank you so much for confirming everything I’ve learned about Age-Appropriate Skincare.
