Julia Bruck is a dear friend of mine.  We both started our television careers in the tiny town of Casper, Wyoming longer ago than I'd like to admit!  Over the years, we've moved up the ranks and around the country, but we've always kept in touch.

Recently, Julia stepped away from the grueling life of a journalist to do something she's become incredibly passionate about: helping friends and family look and feel their best with a company called Arbonne.

Arbonne's products all use pure, botanically based ingredients and scientifically-tested products.  I've purchased some of their skincare serums and creams from Julia before, and was incredibly happy with the results.

Recently, she asked me to test out their brand new line called RE9 Advanced.  The line features ingredients like sustainable orange stem cells, peptides and alpha hydroxy acids, to combat the signs of aging.  Usually I only pick and choose one or two products, so it was exciting to try an entire line.  I used almost the entire regimen for two weeks and was very pleased with the results!

The standouts for me were the toner, serum and night cream.  I love that the RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner is a spray!  It doesn't dry out your skin, but really helps remove excess makeup and prepare the skin for your creams.

My favorite product was the RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum.  Because I have to wear so much makeup at work, I need something light to go underneath.  The serum is a powerful treatment, but is immediately absorbed by the skin, so it doesn't feel heavy.  On weekends, I coupled the serum with the RE9 Advanced Restorative Cream SPF 20 Suncreen.  During the week, I wore it alone.

I also enjoyed the RE9 Advanced Night Repair Cream.  There's nothing like a rich, high-quality cream overnight to make your skin glow the following morning!  This one features a hydrating blend of botanicals and collagen-supporting ingredients.  My skin definitely looked and felt more youthful in the morning.

If you're interested in checking out the line or other Arbonne yourself, Julia would love to hear from you!  You can visit her website to purchase products and get in touch.
