Hi Rachel. I have had experience with the Arbonne products for almost 11 years now! I find them very beneficial and have no need to try anything else. . . my search ended 11 years ago! I use everything they offer, from skin care to cosmetics, from body care to hair care and vitamins. I believe in their philosphies and formulations.
The acne line that Arbonne has uses Salicylic Acid and botanicals, no petroleum or animal by-products, no dyes or fragrances. It also offers an herbal supplement so that you can support from the inside out as well as topically.
If you have specific questions for your particular usage, I would be happy to help you or find someone who can.

I used the Arbonne acne line for nearly a year and didn't really find that it did much. The lotion is kind of thick and almost feels like too much on the skin. The cleanser just doesn't really do that much because the salycylic acid content is so low. Also, the whole line is peppermint-scented which smells good, but I've read isn't good for the skin. I gave up trying it and decided to test something else. My skin isn't even that bad really and I found it did little for me.

I used Arcona, but not for oily/acne skin. While I did not notice anything as far as wrinkle improvement, what I will say is that Arcona has strong products. My skin really glowed while I was using that line. If I had skin in my 20's, that is the line I would use.

Thumbs down for me regarding the Arbonne. I did think the eye cream was nice but ultimately it gave me milia.

Used it (the RE line). Sold it. Had great luck with it vis-a-vis no break outs--but have not been that impressed with the anti-aging benefits.
