I haven't tried the products myself, but just the fact that Arbonne is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company, would pretty much keep me away from them.

In viewing the information on their website, I don't see anything in their products that you can't get elsewhere (probably cheaper). The ingredients in their products are commonly used in protein powders and supplements - of course, they're following the MO of the MLM and diet industry by overblowing their statements as to the veracity of the ingredients in weight loss.

My advice would be to shop around - usually you end up paying a premium for MLM products!
