I never really thought much of the Mary Kay model until I heard about a company called Arbonne, who basically took the sales rep model and started using it to sell green and vegan cosmetics and skin care. While I don't think I'd be able to make a living as a saleswoman, I was definitely interested in trying out some of their products, such as this Aromassentials Awaken Sea Salt Scrub.
- Sea salt helps exfoliate gently
- Pleasant citrus scent
- Scent won't linger too long past bath or shower
- Made with gentle ingredients
- Size of full-sized product is quite generous
- Will leave skin soft and moisturized
- May need to mail order unless you know a local rep
Arbonne's Aromassentials Awaken Sea Salt Scrub is a nice sea salt scrub that will help exfoliate and keep skin soft. I love how it is vegan-certified (along with the rest of the line) and is made with relatively gentle ingredients. It only rates a 3 on EWG's Skin Deep database. However, I found it odd that full ingredients are not clearly listed and likely must be requested. I would love to see the ingredients listed, especially since Arbonne goes to great lengths to sell their products as green and vegan. For your convenience, I have listed the ingredients for this product below.
I enjoyed using this scrub and found it to be a nice weekly treat to help exfoliate. It left me feeling refreshed and I found the scent to be pleasant. For the $30 price, I would love to see organic ingredients included in the future, although a full-sized product will last through many uses. If you're looking for a good vegan scrub, especially one that looks pretty enough to gift, Arbonne's Awaken is definitely a nice option.

UPDATE: The consultant I've been in contact with, Linda Lederman, wishes to inform readers that you may "place an initial qualifying order through me, and use [Kaylin Johnson] as a referral" to become a Preferred Client. "This would entitle [readers] to receive a minimum 20% discount on all orders for a year (as well as getting free bonus products on qualifying orders). Once a person is a Preferred Client (there are no obligations associated with this status) they will receive their own I.D. and Pin # and then they can place all their future orders online (at Arbonne.com) by themselves." In other words, you can get at least 20% off for a year after placing an initial order through Linda, if you contact her through her website or email Lynled (at) aol (dot) com
