WIN-it-Wednesday: Arbonne Pure Swiss Skin Care & Nutrition

To date, all of BeFreeForMe’s WIN-it-Wednesday blogs have featured items that have to do with gluten & allergen free FOOD.

That is why I am more than thrilled to have Arbonne Skin Care & Nutrition be the sponsor of this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday!

Being on a gluten-free diet, I have become more aware of the ingredients in the foods, as well as all other products, that I use.

Although the world around me can be complicated and crazy, it seems ironic that my gluten-free lifestyle has made what I eat and use become more simple. Products that are pure, safe and beneficial to me and my well-being.

Which ironically is Arbonnes’s tagline: pure. safe. beneficial.

For those of you that want to stay away from gluten in cosmetics and creams that could be ingested, this product is for you. Almost all of the Arbonne products (except for the women’s vitamins and the natural hormone cream) contain no gluten. They also have a weight loss and nutrition program including shakes, chews and supplements that are also free of gluten, are high in vegetable protein and are also perfect for vegetarians.

An Arbonne representative and manager, Kristina, who is also a celiac and lives the gluten-free lifestyle with her family, has offered TWO LUCKY BeFreeForMe members a gift pack containing the Arbonne SeaSource Detox Spa line of Foaming Sea Salt Scrub and Renewing Body Gelee (Over an $80 value per gift pack!). I’ve tried this Arbonne line of products (as well as other Arbonne products too!) and I love them… and I think you will as well!

How can you win?

EASY! Reply to this post and tell us how you relax and unwind after a long hectic day. (Me? I take a long walk with Sadie Maie, my super-sweet boxer, or hang out on my front porch with a good book.)

Kristina has also generously offered all BeFreeForMe members 20% OFF all Arbonne products until 8/15/09! There is something for everyone from infants to those concerned with anti-aging. To redeem your 20% OFF offer send her an email at:

As an added bonus, Kristina is living the gluten-free lifestyle, and can answer any questions that you may have.

All entries to win must be posted by Sunday, August 9th at 12 midnight EST.

Good Luck and… as always…

Be Free!

    Woo hoo!! I relax either by reading, taking a long shower with smelly bath accoutrements, or checking Facebook and playing Bejeweled Blitz. 🙂

  2. Jean Layton Says:

    Relaxation for me comes late in the evening post dinner creation, dog walking and playing a board game with my twins. After snuggling them into bed, I get to enjoy a nice glass of wine, a good book and the occasional foot massage from my honey.

  3. Debra Gowlland Says:

    I relax at the end of the day by sitting on my deck with my husband-talking about how our day was and watching the kids play in our back yard.

  4. Esther Says:

    Hang out with my dog Biscuit, cat Rosie and six newborn baby chicks – so cute to watch, you can’t help but forget your worries and relax!

  5. Beverly Says:

    By spending time alone reading.

  6. Laurel Says:

    I love to light some candles, listen to soft music and relax in nice hot bubbly bath!

  7. Carol Asher Says:

    After a long day at work, or working at home, I enjoy reading a good book or magazine. It has always been my stress reliever.

    I am anxious to share the Arbonne products with our local Celiac Support Group. We discuss skin products very often, in fact we had a cosmetic representative talk at our last meeing. And we do have members with Dermatitis Herpetiformis. A dermatologist is scheduled to speak at our next meeting.

  8. Sara Says:

    I head to the gym to get out all my pent up energy and furusterations from the day, then I shower and watch an episode of the West Wing with my husband (it’s our “thing”) or spend time reading in bed.

  9. Michelle Teter Says:

    I relax by scrapbooking or cardmaking.

  10. Gretchen Foht Says:

    After a busy day, I relax by watching any of my 4 children participate in their activities. It is relaxing and rejuvenating to watch their PURE JOY as they participate in activities they love. I walk away with a continued appreciation for my children. It helps me rejuvenate for another day.

  11. Dina Sanabria Says:

    I like to relax by reading a good book or magazine while sitting out in the sunshine.

  12. Francine Says:

    My relaxation is in the morning when I exercise and drive away any frustrations left over from the day before. Do all celiacs need to watch out for the products that they use or is it just those with D.H.?

  13. Nicole Garcia Says:

    I relax by taking a long hot bath and watching episodes of NCIS with my boyfriend.

    I do yoga or go swing at the park and curl up with a good book,

  20. Sarah Says:

    I love gardening. I find it relaxing to be able to see the fruit of my labor. And just to enjoy that in life, you can only do so much. The rest will work itself out. I planted the seed, watered it, weeded the garden…but in the end the plant must do the work. I love it. It takes a huge burden off of things.

  21. Cara Says:

    I relax by swimming or taking my doggies for a walk or gardening. This sounds awesome!

  22. Lynnae Says:

    I unwind through being outdoors – hiking, biking, running, playing Frisbee – or cooking up something new and different. A good book and a glass of wine are always good, too. 🙂

  23. Jennifer Hellendrung Says:

    I have a couple of things I enjoy doing to relax, spending time in the kitchen with my family, learning together more about cooking gluten free, having a spa, pampering party with my two daughters. We love to put on masks and take silly pictures, laughter is wonderful! I also enjoy reading a good book to relax.

  24. Eileen Sanders Says:

    I play with my cat, Sara or spending time in my garden and flowers.

  25. dyana Says:

    I relax by doing anything at all with my children!!

  26. Meredith Stickney Says:

    I love to relax with my 12 year old daughter and listen to her talk about her day out on our porch (before the bugs come out) drinking ice tea. Then we come in and either play on WII as the dog, willow, tries hard to join in. My second is a nice relaxing bath no interruptions listing to great music. I have used Arbonne products and they are terrfic and my rep has gone above and beyond to check for gluten information on any of the products I have use, that makes me feel special instead of different, So nice!

  27. Lisa Durene Says:

    I like to hang out with the family and watch movies or our favorite tv shows to relax. A great book is always nice too!

  28. Katie Says:

    I love to light some candles, put on opera music, and take a nice long bath.

  29. Jackie Says:

    When life gets stressful I relax with a cup of tea while I walk my dog Carol to the dog park so she can play and I can sit on a bench under a tree with the soft breez caressing my face. The we go home and I light candles and simply enjoy the quiet peaceful,chirping of crickets and birds.

  30. Susan Says:

    Reading is my absolute favorite way to relax. I also unwind by walking my dogs, puttering in my flower garden and baking (gluten-free, of course!)

  31. Deb Koltis Says:

    I love to relax in the evenings by sitting on my deck with my husband and watching the deer in the yard. On my days off I love being around my home doing whatever and sneaking in a kitty snuggle with one of my cats.

  32. Lindsay Kelly Says:

    After a long day full of stress I enjoy going to the gym. This is my ‘me’ time where I can mentally cleanse my mind, and challenge my body. There is nothing more rewarding than putting my feet up after a long day of work and a great workout!

  33. Liz Daniels Says:

    Surfing for recipes, finding new food items and cooking, always gluten free, is one of the things I enjoy doing to relax. I also love to read in bed and there are some great books out there. If I can only stay awake to read a chapter or two without falling asleep:>

  34. sandra Says:


  35. Kara S. Says:

    My favorite thing to do to relax is to sit in bed with my boys and read a book together. Our latest endevor has been the Harry Potter series. If it has been a really stressful day then I hop on my treadmill and push myself to do better than my last run.

  36. Kathy Bunn Says:

    I like to sit on my porch with a glass of wine, my husband and my 14 yr old son and talk.

  37. Deidre Says:

    I relax by walking with my boyfriend and his dog in the park and then making root beer floats together… best gluten free snack!

  38. Melisa Says:

    To relax in the evenings, I like to sit on the porch with dear hubby, curl up on the sofa with a good book, or work in my journal.

  39. Rhonda Says:

    Wow, relax! Not exactly sure what that means. I am a type A personality so I’m always on the go and multitasking. But when I do relax, I definitely put my feet up, grab a good book or magazine, get my cozy blanket and just chill!

  40. Christine S. Says:

    Relax after a long day? Still looking for the answer.

  41. Faith Pavkovich Says:

    We’re recent empty nesters. After raising three kids, a quiet homecoming to my honey and my Westie Gus is all the relaxation I need. A long walk with Gus, some light ‘work’ in the flower beds, a magazine and a little TV time… then, I like to catch up on the days events with my husband while preparing dinner. Life is great!!

  42. Pat Fuller Says:

    I go to the Hot Tub on my patio and relax for about 30 minutes.

  43. M. Michalka Says:

    Relaxation for me is yoga. The deep breathing and stretching gives me a great night’s rest.

  44. Pace Says:

    Doing some slow deep yoga streches, followed by cooking a meal ~ music playing, singing dancing, a snip of tequila ~ then a stroll after dinner….a good book or a movie to finish the day……. 😉
