Arbonne Pure Mint Deodorant - is it good as they say it is?

I run.
I clean.
I work.
I network.
I clean.
I walk.
I do volunteer work...and yes, I'm on television! (that's something new!)

Every day I walk at least 5 miles just to get from one place to another. I'm always walking or running from one train station to the next, and I've been cleaning the house for the past 4 weeks!

And like everyone else, I don't like to sweat. I have tried quite a few deodorants and not one seemed to work -- keeping me dry, smelling fresh and safe to use, until...

A few months ago, I was having breakfast with my dear friend, Maria. And I noticed that her skin was flawless. She smiled and said that she takes care of her skin , don't we all?  So anyway, I just thought she's born with it, so we went with our regular conversations about our college-bound kids.

And then a few weeks ago, we were having our monthly breakfast with friends and I noticed how beautiful her skin was (again) and that's when she mentioned a new product that she's been using and loving!

You're probably wondering, what does Jen's armpits got to do with Maria's flawless face?

Ha! That's when I was introduced to Arbonne. I'm not an expert on what the company does but all I know is that their products are natural, pure, safe and beneficial.

Arbonne's catalogue printed the company's ever green commitment: "At Arbonne, we are all about being green - always have been and always will be. From botanically based ingredients to forward-looking green improvements, being earth friendly has everything to do with who we are and how we choose to grow."

Pure, safe, beneficial. Sounded good on paper. But will it really work? Is there a difference? Will it cost me an arm and a leg?

I have super sensitive skin so I am still in the grueling process of figuring out what skin care products work for me. As soon as I get results from that experiment, I'll definitely let you know.

BUT there's one product that I really love and it's the ArbonnePure Mint Deodorant! The deodorant kept me dry and smelling fresh! You should see me around my house or during one of my walks with my friend and family - I was smelling my armpits to make sure the deodorant was doing what it was supposed to do: Kept me from being stinky!

Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is aluminum-free and paraben-free. It's infused with mint and baking soda and other natural ingredients and it does not leave you smelling like your deodorant. And plus, it doesn't leave a white residue on your armpits or on your dress.

But what really attracted me to the Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is that it's natural! In using the Arbonne brand, I know I'm not adding chemicals or toxins to my body. I've had a few health scare which motivated my family and I to try to live a healthier life, and trying to limit our intake of non-essential poisons is a priority.

Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is a little pricey ($17) but if I added all the sticks of deodorant I have in my drawer, I think I'm ahead.

So Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant, you got the GottaLoveMom's Seal of Approval!

Update: March 11, 2015
Unfortunately, after 6 months, my son and I stopped using the Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant because it didn't keep us fresh smelling and/or dry.


  1. Oooo! I will try that when I finish my stash. I only use paraben free and aluminum free too. Thanks for sharing this. Very helpful! Mwah!

  2. Arbonne is probably the least effective aluminum-free deodorant. Also to clarify, Arbonne is not as "natural" as they claim (check the ingredients lists on their products...which they don't easily make available). Yes their products contain botanicals along with conflicting ingredients making the brand barely better than most conventional brands...hence the need for personal selling.

  3. Thank you for the heads up. I'll definitely check into it.

Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A Purpose

My family is what matters most to me.  I’m 51 and a mother of 4 (ages 14 – 26). I wanted to be healthier, more active and stronger not just for me, but for the people I love.  I wanted to set an example for my family that we each possess the tools to master our wellness and vitality. I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!) Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.   Achieving stable, long-lasting results proved stubbornly elusive.    Then when I hit menopause everything became more difficult.    My body stopped cooperating altogether, and I was constantly grumpy. My waist and hips expanded and I found myself napping in the afternoons.    I started to accept the idea that there would be this new, less vibrant version of me. I just completed my P

SPICE-up a young child's development: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional

Children are the precious gems of a family. When they’re young and innocent, they are like sponges that willingly and quickly absorb any knowledge and emotion. That’s why at an early age, we encourage our children to read, be creative, be happy and feed their curiosity. With all the technology and instant gratification that children get from playing video or computer games, asking a child to read a good book has been a challenge for some parents .     “Your children are not your children.       They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.       They come through you but not from you,       And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.       You may give them your love but not your thoughts,        For they have their own thoughts.        You may house their bodies but not their souls,        For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,        which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” -                     Kahlil Gibr

Immigration and Family: Will my mom ever get to see my daughter walk down the aisle

Last year when my father passed away in the Philippines, I went home and took some time to visit the U.S. Embassy in Manila to ask what the options are for my mother to return to the U.S. The consul reminded me of the 10-year travel ban. That on or after November 8, 2015 — not earlier – or 10 years after my mom, was deported in 2005 for overstaying her visa, I can email the U.S. Embassy and inquire about my mother’s approved petition. I asked if I need to file another petition, and she informed me I didn’t have to. I asked if I could… and she stopped me and said to ask everything on or after November 8, 2015. This is where I am, and where my thoughts are drifting as I celebrate this month my 16th American birthday. I am counting the months, the weeks and the days. My daughter is getting married in January 2016 and I would love to have my entire family, especially my mother, to be here when that momentous occasion happens.

Helping others surpass their goals and expectations

"It's not about the end goal. It's who you become by consistently pushing to the edge of your limits." - Robin Sharma Do you ever wonder why you stumble on new things?  Do you ever wonder why unsuspecting strangers cross your path? Do you ever wonder why your mind takes you to a direction you didn't think exist? I was walking to StarBucks to meet my husband when I noticed a sign...

Still shaky, skidded in snow, but so blessed my guardian angels are looking after me!

"Never again wonder, what to be thankful for..."   - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life It’s yet another snowy day in New Jersey. Beautiful, yes but dangerous! In line with my goal for this month is to get back on schedule. I got up around 4am to get my 15yo ready for his Model United Nations conference. (Thankful that our neighbor offered to drive him to school by 5:30am ) I got my 9yo ready for school and I'm thankful that my other neighbor offered to drive him to school. I then drove my husband to the train station to Manhattan. I decided to stop by the Community Center and decided to run a fast 5K on the treadmill. I was 1 mile short because I was so sweaty and hot. (Note to self: dress lightly next time) While cooling down inside the car, I read Day 14’s chapter of Rick Warren's the “Purpose Driven Life” book. I felt really good because it just reminded me that there is always something to be thankful for no matter how awful yo
