I have been anticipating this trip since I first joined Arbonne last February! I wasn’t able to make our Global Training Conference in 2018, but I knew I needed to be there this year.

it’s official – I’ve hit the halfway point of this Accutane journey! It’s crazy to realize it’s the downhill stretch from here. My dermatologist said that this 3/4 month point is where I should start to see a lot of real breakthrough with my skin.Continue reading “my accutane journey: month 3”
