WIN-It-Wednesday: Arbonne Lip Balms and Sunscreens

It’s Official! The Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of summer are officially here!

Many of us will be spending the Fourth of July Holiday outside while we enjoy barbeques, picnics, boating, swimming and hanging by the beach and poolside.

While packing our bags for these excursions, we make sure we pack enough gluten and allergen free snacks and food for the whole family. But what about your sunscreen and lip balms? Are they gluten and allergen-free too?

Since the start of the summer, I have been inundated with BeFreeForMe members asking about gluten-free lip balms, sunscreens and lipsticks. My solution? Arbonne products.

All of Arbonne skincare products are free of gluten (with the exception of the vitamins and hormone cream); free of synthetic fragrances; and free of dyes, PABA and mineral oils. They are also pH correct and are botanically based.

But what I love the absolute most about Arbonne is my rep, Krissy.

A number of years ago, Krissy was diagnosed with celiac disease too. She lives a strict gluten-free lifestyle along with her family, many of whom are also celiacs.

It’s nice to know that she “gets it” and she understands when you’re adamant about getting sunscreens, make-ups and lip balms that are free of gluten! She’s also very generous when it comes to getting free samples of products you’re interested in trying and she ships my orders direct to my door…. Whenever I need them! (No malls… no stores… no snooty make-up counter girls that have no clue about gluten and allergens!)

Krissy has generously offered to supply these fantastic Arbonne Gluten-free products for the sponsorship of BeFreeForMe’s WIN-It-Wednesday’s for the next two weeks.

Five (yes 5!) entries will win an Arbonne SPF 30 BefoRE Sun Lip Saver Sunscreen. Plus, one Grand-Prize Winner will win a sunscreen gift set containing an ABC Sunscreen with SPF 30 (made for baby’s sensitive skin, but great for us “Big Kids’ too!), BefoRE Sun Save Face & Body Sunscreen with SPF 15 (Blended with arnica, rosemary, linden and chamomile, this product which is suitable for all skin types is great alone or under make-up), a BefoRE Sun Damage Control Water Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30 (Helps prevent sunburns even after 40 minutes in the water!), along with a BefoRE Sun Lip Saver Sunscreen.

How can you WIN?

    This summer, I am teaching summer literacy camp for kids going into first grade. My gf daughter will be joining my group next week (her camp is over!) and we will be doing fun outdoor things such as cherry picking, out door museum, and just playing outside!

  3. Phyllis Says:

    I love to go on motorcycle trips with my husband. We have found so many beautiful places in USA that are not advertised just by traveling. I wear alot of lipbalm on the bike to protect my lips from wind and sun.Both of us use lots of sunscreen also.

    We are getting together with my extended family at my brother’s house on the lake for the 4th of July. Good food (hopefully some gluten free (: ) and good conversation.

  6. Lisa Durene Says:

    I plan on spending time in my garden and hopefully some fishing time.

  7. Rosemarie Says:

    Well, I’ll start off with fireworks and live music at a friend’s home, then will spend the rest of the weekend beaching it with family and friends. I live near the beach and I ALWAYS use sunblock and lip balm with an SPF, even in the winter months! I’m so excited that this product line is GF etc. Thank you!!!

  8. Michelle Says:

    We have a busy summer planned with a vacation to Virginia Beach, lots of get togethers with my sons preschool friends, and of course, lots and lots of fun cookouts and summer parties!

  9. Rosemary Kim Says:

    It happens to be my mom’s birthday July 5th so we’re planning an all day trip to the aquarium out in Long Island and then a birthday dinner! We’re actually moving in a few weeks so I’ll have to spend the rest of the weekend packing – who knew how much baby stuff we’d accumulate over the one year and a half! =O

  10. Kristina Herrick Says:

    So nice to see all the responses. Arbonnes products are phenomenal and you can get them at 20%discount as well. please email me directly for more info if you would like to order.

  11. Dana Says:

    We are celebrating the 4th with a bar-b-que at a friend’s new house. This is a special bar-b-que!
    Last year on the 4th, we were to have a cookout at her house. She was our backyard neighbor.
    We were jolted awake, by the sound of what sounded like gun shots outside our window. I ran to
    the window, only to find our neighbor’s house fully engulfed in flames. The gunshot noise was the windows blowing out from the fire. Thankfully all made it out safe! We are starting a new tradition, to make
    good memories, on a previously horrible day!

    Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! I have a hard time finding lip products with out gluten!
    Everything seems to burn, or dry!


  12. Amy Says:

    I plan on watching fireworks over the ocean in Daytona Beach with my kids and some friends. It’s my mom’s birthday and it’s a beautiful way to remember her.

  13. Joanne Griffo Says:

    I am always in the sun during the summer, with lots of beach time and constant re-applying of sunblock. The only downside is that my skin reacts to so many products. Your GF line is a real help to me. Thanks so much.

  14. Joanne Griffo Says:

    Pleas submit my comment as stated above.

  17. sarah Says:

    Summer is my favorite time of the year! I have a huge family and the 4th of July is our most celebrated holiday!!! We have a huge cookout and pop firecrackers until one in the morning. My parents have some acreage so we ride four wheelers. It’s all very red-neck, if I do say so myself. But that is okay. I think sometimes you just have to let your hair down and have a good ole time!!!

  23. Susan C - AZ Says:

    Since it is so hot in AZ at this time of year; I am talking 100+ degrees, I love to invite friends over to watch movies and eat my GF treats. When I am out during the day, I always use sunscreen and a lip balm to protect my skin and lips. Thank you Arbonne for offering us a chance to win your wonderful products.

  24. Audrey Says:

    I’ve had a busy summer….some relaxing at my cabin. So I think I’ll just laze around home, work in the garden (more like play!), visit with neighbors, and catch up as I’ll be having company the next week-end.

Being a fair skinned red head with 2 easily sun burned boys we never leave home without loads of sunblock!

Can’t wait to spend time with all of them!!! We definitely could us some more sunscreen!!
    The boys love all of this “down time” after a busy school year! Enjoy your summer!

    I will be found in my garden! I love to garden and work outside all day long. I also plan on taking the kids from my Kids Cafe to the Farmer’s Market to sell plants and learn how to work. We will also be maintaining our community garden we have done for the community we live in! Field trips to the local parks-looking for fossils in the creeks, and picking blackberries and teaching them how to cook are just a few things on the agenda!

  53. Iris Says:

    I’m spending the summer with my parents cooking healthy meals from their food coop vegetables…and taking an occasional jump into their pool!

  54. Patricia Holt Says:

    Easy question, easy answer. The same thing I do every holiday and weekend. Check my lawn and garden conditions, mow the lawn, trim what needs trimming, water what needs watering, talk to my plants like they are humans, watch the birds at the feeders and the squirrels trying to steal the feed. What a great way to admire the creations of this world.

  55. LadyChi Says:

    I plan to go to Navy Pier for a cruise on the lake this summer.

    This weekend I will be harvesting fresh tomatoes and herbs from my patio garden and using them to make homemade spaghetti sauce. I will roast some of the tomatoes in olive oil to bring out their natural sweetness. I love doing this each summer and freezing the sauce to use during the long winter months. Of course, I love pairing this delicious sauce with gluten-free, brown rice pasta. Yum!

  61. Tamela Says:

    Outside with the kids at a nice little pond and the following weekend at the pool, cool!

  62. Sue Says:

    This summer my family plans on spending time in the sun at the beach. Our family lives in New Jersey so they will be joining us for some fun on the New England shore line. Having all the kids get together – 10 – ranging from 30 to 15, will be a great time, playing games on the beach and eating good gf food.

  63. Gris Says:

    We will hit the pool, as long as we can! is Hot!!

  64. Laureen Monkelbaan Says:

    This summer weekend I am planting and tending to a large herb garden. The herbs that I have planted are basil, three kinds of oregano, two kinds of thyme sage and lavender, rosemary, chives, cilantro, dill, parsley, peppermint, and spearmint. I plan on drying many of the herbs at the end of summer. These will make great small but thoughtful gifts!

  65. BRENDA Says:

    Plan on going out on the party barge with a bottle of red wine and a good girl friend for some girly time.Wine and Glutino pretzels great with best friend talks, yes red wine is okay for us to drink.

  66. Lucy Says:

    My plan is plant some fresh fruit & veggies (maybe a mini herb garden too) – I love to pick the fresh lemons/limes from the tree that hangs but I also love a fresh fruit salad in the shade!

  67. Lindsey Says:

    Living in LA (lower alabama) our summer trips to the beach have been severely interrupted. We’re making the most of it though and enjoy weekends just relaxing at home while my son plays in his kiddy pool and my husband fires up the grill. I love summer!
