Today I’d like to share with you an amazing anti-ageing products from Arbonne that I was trialling before I got pregnant, the RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel*

What They Say:

Works quickly to make skin feel tighter and firmer.

RRP: $71 (30ml) – Available from Natalie Xylas, Independent Arbonne Consultant

What I Say:
I have previously tried a couple of the different products in the RE9 Advanced skincare range including the Corrective Eye Cream and the Regenerating Toner, and as they are both fantastic products, I was excited to be trialling the Instant Lift Gel as well.

Unfortunately I had to stop using the product as I got pregnant as it contains Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), which is a huge no-no during pregnancy, but I did manage to use it for several weeks, long enough to be able to form an opinion..

The RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel is a gel that is intended to be used prior to your serum and moisturiser to make the skin feel tighter and firmer.

The fruity orange scented light gel contains among others algae extract and peptides that supports collagen through moisturisation to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the skin smoothness.

The gel is very light and quite concentrated too, so you only need to use a tiny amount to cover the whole face. It takes a minute or two to absorb into the skin, but once it has, you can both see and feel the tightening effect that stays even after you’ve applied your usual serum and moisturiser. And even after applying your makeup, I love the visible results – my skin simply looks so much smoother with less fine lines – almost as if I have just come back from a very relaxing holiday or have had a very long beauty sleep.

So how did the Lift Gel perform in the long run – well after using it daily in the morning for a few weeks, I have to admit that I am failing to see any permanent difference to the appearance of fine lines ad wrinkles in my skin, and the instant lifting effect sadly seems to be only cosmetic

The Lift Gel does contains among others Vitamin A, and other ingredients to help to fight the signs of ageing, so it may be that I have just not used it for a long enough period.

At $71 it is not exactly cheap, and especially considering it is an extra step, in addition to your serum and moisturiser – but I really I love the instant look and feel of my skin when I use it, so I will definitely be pulling it out and using it again for special occasions when I’ve given birth and I am able to use it again.

  1. I was sent a couple of trial packs to try of Arbonne products. The packs were the RE9 products. I loved the scent of this gel but after finishing the 2 trial packs, I was not a fan of Arbonne...I did not see any differences and I actually found that the products, including the eye cream, left my face feeling tight, even though this line is supposed to be for the mature skin. I would never pay that much for an Arbonne product. I would not buy them myself. Thanks for your review. I love reading what others think of products I use.

  2. A Great tip with this product is that it can be used UNDER or OVER makeup...AND with NO residue.
    I have a lot of corporate clients who after a long day may go out after work.. This is the perfect Pick Me Up they need to look AMAZING... ENJOY..xxx

  3. Sounds like an interesting product, I've not heard of anything like this before!
