Review: Arbonne RE9 Advanced for Men Anti-Ageing Moisturiser
Living in Australia we all know the importance of protecting our skin form the sun’s harmful rays to avoid skin cancer and anti-ageing. One of my biggest pet peeves of using a sunscreen or a moisturiser with SPF is that most of them make my skin appear oily throughout the day or on the other hand feel incredibly heavy on the skin. I recently got my hands on Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced for Men Anti-ageing Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and decided to give it a go as it boasts a refresh and lightweight formulation. Here’s what I thought of it.
Designed to serve and protect, this moisturiser boasts a refreshing and lightweight formulation which works to improve the appearance of lines wrinkles, firmness and suppleness. It also protects against UVB/UVA rays with broad spectrum 15. RE9 Advanced is formulated with a range of vitamins and botanicals including Japanese pagoda tree flower known for its antioxidant properties which work to improve skins moisture barrier to help help dull and tired looking skin appear fresher and healthier. Vitamin C has also been added to assist collagen production and to improve texture, along with algae to support collagen and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A naturally derived copper containing extract called Malachite extract has also been included for its antioxidant benefits and its ability to support moisturising benefits for health-looking skin.
Results: The first thing I noticed about this product was its light formulation which spread evenly on the skin and was instantly absorbed without feeling heavy. I have combination skin but more on the oily side so It’s quite common for me to have shiny looking skin through the day and when combined with sunscreen usually is a lot worst. While not a benefit of this product, I did find that my skin didn’t appear oily which I can only attribute to good hydration. While using this product I noticed my skin appeared clearer and brighter and was overall incredibly impressed by the look of my complexion. In terms of line and wrinkles I don’t really have any major concerns where my moisturiser is concerned; however, my skin did appear plumper which would assist with smoothing out lines and wrinkles. A great product for use every day to improve skins overall appearance. My only issue with this product is it should be available in a 100ml size.
How to use: Gently apply by working from the middle of the face outwards, stroking upward until fully absorbed prior to sun exposure. Intended for daytime use.
