Arbonne Makeup Primer Giveaway: keep that pre-workout look all day!

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!

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!).

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!

  1. To answer your question, yes you do look good in the workout photo! Now about gliding on and staying put, are we describing first the oil on my sweaty face then my naughty puppy?

    • How about puppy after he got into olive oil and slid across the kitchen floor…

  2. Wow, I really need to try this primer. Whenever I look at myself after a workout I look pretty pathetic:0

      Primer did it’s job this morning getting me through a sweaty step class!

  3. I’m pretty excited about the primer too!! I would love it just for walking around in this humid NYC weather. Pick me, pick me!

    • Hi Talia!
      It’s pretty humid here too, but not nearly as warm as in NYC! Keep your fingers crossed; maybe you’ll win!

  4. I don’t think I have ever worn makeup to workout (I usually hit the gym at 6:00am LOL). I’d love to try this though – anything helps!

  5. I keep trying primers & they all break out that friggin old age hair on my face so this would be cool to try!

  6. Duh, the RE9 extra special kit. You know, the expensive one. But realistically, and of the skin care for aging skin. As to looking fresh right after class, I use Chanel mascara, which doesn’t seem to run. And I use face wipes right away. The unscented ones.
