Glowy skin is having a moment. And I’m hoping it’s a moment that lasts an eternity.
Ever seen those celebrities whose skin is glowing so much it looks like they have a halo?
It’s literally an angelic-level glow.
Yeah. Me too.
My first glowy skin crush? Definitely Lucy Hale.
My second, Becca Tilley (also, just love her in general).
And always and forever, Blake Lively. She’s the queen of, well, everything.
All three of them (and more) are why I’m excited to team up with my D.C. bestie, Tori Whiting, to chat about how you — celebrity or not — can achieve glowing skin.
Tori and I share a love for skincare, beauty, and just treating yo’ self. She’s the friend I grab when I want to get a spur of the moment mani-pedi, need advice on my latest hair transformation, or need to have a good detox conversation after a stressful day.
Tori has an amazing story of how her skin went from perfectly fine to perfectly spectacular when she began incorporating Arbonne products into her daily routine. Like me, Tori has to keep up her appearance for work, especially for TV interviews and speaking engagements. But she and I also share a love for being put-together. We both recognize that the first step in any good make-up routine is a tip-top skincare routine.
We selected five skincare products from Arbonne we think will have you glowing in no time! Tori began using Arbonne a year and a half years ago and was so blown away with the results that she became an Arbonne independent consultant. Seriously…look at her skin after 10 months of using Arbonne! One of Tori’s favorite things about Arbonne is that the products are vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free!

- Arbonne’s Skin Elixir Collagen Builder with Hyaluronic Acid
We all know that healthy skin starts with healthy habits. What you put into your body matters, just as much, if not more than what you put on it. That’s why Arbonne created the only vegan collagen builder on the market, to transform your skin from the inside out. Unlike other collagen supplements, this has ZERO animal byproducts. Instead, it contains ingredients to help your body naturally create more of its own collagen. Collagen helps create firmer skin and improve skin elasticity. It’s great as an anti-aging agent, but also perfect for the youngsters among us who just want to maintain your youthful glow. Slip it into your morning glass of water daily and, easy-peasy, you’ve completed step 1 on your journey to healthier, glowier skin.
2. Arbonne’s Rescue and Renew Detox Mask
Me and Tori are both suckers for face masks. The number of face masks I’ve brought back from Korea is more than a little ridiculous. So, I was excited to try Arbonne’s Rescue and Renew Detox Mask. It’s a clay mask that goes on wet and as it dries, it soaks up all the excess oils and toxins you pick up on the daily just walking around. Basically, the goal is to create a clean palette for all other skincare and make-up products you apply afterward. It’s a great place to start your routine and only takes about five minutes to deliver results.
I take really good care of my skin and I was horrified to see all of the extra oils and toxins the mask picked up. Better to know and have steps to combat those little buggers.
In short, this stuff works, folks!
3. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Prepwork Gel Eye Masks
You know my love for face masks, but did you know that the love for masks need not stop there? These special eye masks are amazing!
When you put them on, they are cool as a cucumber (but better) and turn your regular skincare routine into a spa-day experience. They are perfect for transforming tired, puffy eyes into ones ready for a 5am TV interview! Tori also loves bringing these on a long flight in her carry on bag and putting them on for a little extra moisture.
While Tori and I just applied them as a part of our normal skincare routine, I was getting visions of a relaxing bubble bath + wine + a good book Saturday spa-night-in experience.
4. Arbonne Intelligence Counter Spot Essence
Everyone has a part of their skin that, no matter how much concealer they apply, no matter how much foundation, it’s always just a little off. I’m talking about things like sun damage, acne scarring, or just general discoloration that prevent you from achieving that perfect, glowy finish. Look no further. That discoloration & those uneven patches of skin will be ceding the spotlight to your luminous and bright skin after you use this product. No need to use an excessive amount. A little will go a long way with Arbonne’s Intelligence Counter Spot Essence.
5. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser
I use this product every single night. Yep, you read that right, folks! Every night. And Tori just scolded me for not using it in the shower in the morning too. So I’ll be getting on that stat!! I have been on the hunt for an effective make-up remover for years and I finally found it in Arbonne. I wear quite a bit of make-up (read: foundation, eye-shadow primer, eye-shadow, liner, and three coats of two different types of mascara, every day). When I’m finished using this product, not a stitch of make-up is left. It is especially important to remove all of your mascara because it can clog your eye-lash pores and cause them to stop growing. Unsurprisingly, my eye-lashes have been healthier since using this product. In addition to it’s miraculous, make-up removing ways, this cleanser is actually good for your skin and starts out the anti-aging process. It’s the first step in my nightly skincare routine, I expect, for life.
