I must confess something…I’ve become a skincare junkie. I’m constantly searching for the best and the newest, especially those products geared towards anti-aging. I nerd out reading about new skincare innovations and technology. And if there is a gadget involved, I’m all about it.
Perhaps this is why I couldn’t wait to try the Genius Ultra Anti-Aging Set from Arbonne. This skincare trio is designed to help you achieve radiant skin and target the signs of aging. The set includes the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra, RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum, and RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream.
Although I’m familiar with the Arbonne name, this is the first time I’ve used their products. What struck me first about all three items in the set is their beautiful packaging. As a creative, in my day job, I’m always drawn to the little details companies put into their products. Of course, what I was most curious about was how all three goodies would work together to help skin.
First, let’s talk about the RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream. This vegan and gluten-free eye cream is formulated to improve the look and feel of the skin around the eyes. The rich, yet lightweight cream lifts and contours the skin leaving it more hydrated, smooth, and youthful.
I really like the texture of this cream. It absorbs easily into my delicate eye area. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes, which is a problem I have with so many eye creams. Another great benefit of this eye cream is the amount of product you get, .5 oz. I know it will last me a long time. This makes me extra happy because I’m already noticing a difference in the skin around my eyes. It isn’t as dry and the texture has improved.
The second product in the trio is the vegan and gluten-free RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum. The concentrated formula of this serum is clinically proven to lift and firm skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve your skin’s ability to retain water. In fact, in a 4-week study of 50 women, over 80% reported a significant improvement in elasticity and overall appearance.
I’ve become a big fan of incorporating serums into my skincare routine. They add that je ne sais quoi to my skin. The RE9 Intensive Renewal Serum is no exception. Like the eye cream, the Arbonne serum is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. It also feels very cooling and refreshing. While I still have some dry areas on my skin, they don’t feel as dry, nor itch like they tend to do during the drier times of the year. My skin also looks more hydrated and the fine line on my forehead has diminished.
The piece de resistance of the Genius Ultra Anti-Aging Kit is the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra. This sleek tool uses ultrasound technology to enhance the performance of your skincare products. The gentle waves sent out from the Genius Ultra penetrate the outer layers of your skin to help improve the overall appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and skin tone. Participants of a clinical study also experienced smoother and more luminous skin with the recommended twice daily, 1-minute use of the Genius Ultra.
What I liked most about this handy tool, besides is ergonomic design, it that is has three settings. This allows me to customize which level of warmth I want to experience. If I’m using the Genius Ultra around my eyes, I keep it on the lowest setting. For the rest of my face and décolleté, I using the highest setting. I also like the built in one-minute timer; the product automatically shuts off when my minute of use is up.
The Genius Ultra is also great for travel, and not simply because of its compact size. The power cord included in the kit lets me charge it from my computer, a USB wall adapter, or even a USB docking station.
If you’ve never used a warming, vibrating tool on your face, it does take some adjustment. The first time I used it, I was surprised by how warm/red my face became. However, my sensitive skin has adjusted and the redness is no longer as intense. I do love how my skin tingles after each use. It gives me a sense of satisfaction, especially since I can see and feel how well the kit is helping improve my skin.
