I love trying new products, but I also love to get my reader’s opinions as well. My loyal reader, Sarah, asked me about anti-aging products. I immediately put her in touch with our Arbonne Sponsor, Jill Kay, to review their RE9 Anti Aging Kit….here is her review.

Sarah Reviews the Arbonne RE9 Anti Aging Face Kit:
Last week, I happily volunteered myself to test out the new Arbonne RE9 anti-aging skincare. The lovely and charming rep, Jill, dropped off the goodies at my house. Arbonne standards for ingredients and science are based off EU as well as US standards, touting products that are all natural, pure and safe. This particular line is their premier anti-aging components. Reportedly it’s supposed to clinically improve skin firmness in just 24 hours. There are seven products total in the line.
Thank God there were detailed directions!
I have fairly sensitive skin and am madly in love with my regular aesthetician whose own-made cream is my only regimen. Like most women my bathroom is a graveyard of discarded “miracle” creams. I was a little trepidatious about trying so many products especially when Jill mentioned that I may have a reaction to them. But I plowed ahead.
All products had an attractive citrus smell. Daily routine is:
SPF 20 day cream
Night routine just switched out for night cream.
For someone whose usual routine is only one product this was a big deal. Was it a lot of steps? Yes. Was the cheat sheet necessary? Yes. Was it a pain in the neck? Not at all.
After using the products for three days and three nights I didn’t notice a marked improvement but I did notice what Jill had referred to as the “Arbonne glow”. Furthermore, my sensitive skin did not react at all to any of the seven products. That says a lot to me.
Jill and I are discussing an order now.
I just love a good salon. After living in New York City, there are very few places that hold up to the ones I frequented in the Big Apple. A simple haircut and blow dry can turn into a disaster. Over the past 6 months, I have found a great salon, Le Salon Bleu, 270 Mason St, Greenwich, Ct 06830. The owner, Billy, is really talented and he “gets it”. Whether it be a cut, color or blow out, Billy will make sure that you love your look. They are offering a 20% off all services for NS LIFESTYLE readers. Just mention the blog when you go in. I promise you, you will be thrilled with your new style!!
Happy Labor Day!!! As we approach the last night of summer, we reflect on all the great times spent with family and friends. The many memorable vacation days and celebrations. The making of new friends and cherishing the old. What a great summer it has been.
It has also been a great summer for our readers. I have loved seeing all your photos over the past few months. I really cannot help but sharing just a few:
I saw this recipe and thought it would be perfect to make for the first day of school. You can prepare it the night before and get up early to cook it, before school or cook it the night before and heat it up in the morning. Either way, it is a fun recipe to kick off the school year!
