My job requires that I sweat daily. At least once. I rarely have time between group fitness classes and personal training clients to freshen up, much less shower and re-apply makeup.
Yes, I wear makeup when I workout; nothing heavy. Just a tinted moisturizer to even out my skin tone and a bit of eyeliner and mascara so the ladies in the back row can tell when I’m looking at them.
The problem? Most makeup doesn’t stand a chance of staying put in the face (pun intended) of a sweaty, high intensity workout.
The solution? Arbonne Makeup Primer.
A few months ago, a friend and frequent participant in my Monday step class invited me to attend an Arbonne spa party. The allure of an evening out with the girls (replete with chocolate, wine and a foot soak) was hard to resist. Plus, the party was held at my favourite local women’s clothing shop with discounts on all purchases made that evening!
To make a long story short, I won the makeup primer in a contest. Unbeknownst to me, you’re supposed to ‘prime’ your face before applying makeup. Apparently it makes things glide on more evenly and stay put longer. Who knew?
I was skeptical, to say the least. But with Lyndsy’s application tips and advice to ‘blot my face during workouts’ rather than wipe (are you a ‘blotter’ or a ‘wiper’?), I’m now the proud owner of a fresh (and sweaty) face both before and after my workouts!
Want to win some of your own? Lyndsy has generously offered to give one of my readers a tube of Arbonne Makeup Primer PLUS a $40 gift card to be spent on the product of YOUR choice in her online Arbonne store. (She’ll pay the shipping on the Primer, you’ll need to pay the shipping on the product you order yourself; still a great deal!). Contest is open to Canadian and US residents only (so sorry, my international peeps!).
Don’t know what to order? Watch the video below, in which I open the recent Grab Bag I ordered (along with refills of the Facial Cleanser and Renewal Serum I use daily, often in-between sets of pushups and bicep curls!), all for only $41! Still stumped? Head on over to the Arbonne website and find something you’d love to try!

You’ll get entires for (1) telling me which Arbonne product you’d like to try (mandatory), (2) ‘Tweeting’ about the contest on Twitter (remember to come back and paste the URL of your Tweet in the Rafflecopter entry box), (3) ‘following’ Lyndsy and I on Twitter and (4) ‘Sharing’ on Facebook.
