Satisfying Samples? Arbonne RE9 Advanced Skincare

At the Leeds blogger meet up in August, Nicola gave us samples of Arbonne skincare products to try. I opted to try the RE9 Advanced range, which is for mature skin and contains anti-ageing properties. Not that I have mature skin at the moment, but I'm definitely ageing! 

The sample pack was absolutely amazing and came in it's own little envelope! The sample sizes were 3ml and there was definitely enough product within to use over several days, something which I'm always moaning about with small sample sizes! 

In the pack I received seven samples: Smoothing Facial Cleanser, Regenerating Toner, Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum, Corrective Eye Creme, Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme, Restorative Day Creme and Night Repair Creme. 

Smoothing Facial Cleanser: Left my skin feeling really hydrated after use, and not dry and tight like most cleansing products I use. 

Regenerating Toner: I really enjoyed using this, it left my skin feeling tighter and refreshed.

Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum: I was really happy with this serum, although it looked quite thick in consistency and I was worried it would be like the creams and leave my face feeling oily, it left my skin feeling really supple and moisturised. I topped this off with my regular oil-free moisturiser after and it felt amazing. 

Corrective Eye Creme: I've never used an eye cream before but it left my eyes feeling refreshed and less puffy, and, not that I have many lines around my eyes at 27, left them feeling a lot more plumped up. I would definitely give an eye cream a go in the future! 

Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme & Restorative Day Creme: These did leave my skin feeling softer and more hydrated, but were extremely oily and my face felt like an oil slick as soon as I had applied either of these products. I would probably stick with my oil-free moisturiser. 

Night Repair Creme: Similar to the other creams, I applied it at night but after a few minutes my face felt like an oil slick. I did leave it on for the whole night, yet in the morning my face felt moisturised but extremely greasy. It even managed to make it's way into my hair and all over my fringe. Needless to say I wasn't a happy bunny.

Overall I was really happy with these sample products. I would definitely consider buying their cleanser, toner, serum, and eye creme in the future. 

I would give all these products 3/5.
The only thing I was let down with was the face creams themselves but I presumed they would be oil-based from the beginning as anti-ageing creams are. 

Have you tried any of the Arbonne skincare range?
Would you consider trying any of these products?
