love this product!

I love this product. It’s a lighter more gel-like moisturizer instead of a heavy cream. It smells so good and it’s very gentle. In my early-mid twenties every moisturizer I used for longer than 6 months would start irritating my skin and I also had some acne and unevenness. I’ve been using this product for 5+ years now in the morning and the dry ice at night and my skin looks better than ever!

AMAZZZZIIIIINNNGGGG!!!

I have not used a moisturizer in about 8 years due to my overly sensitive, overly oily, acne prone skin. Other than the hundreds of synthetic moisturizers I tried in my teenage years, I switched over to all natural products in my early 20s and still wasn't able to find a product that wouldn't break me out or make me look greasy (i.e., Juice Beauty, MyMichelle, Lotus Moon, etc).I gave up on moisturizers until Arcona sent me a sample of MAGIC WHITE ICE. I decided to try it ONLY because my skin is beginning to flake, get rough in texture, and minor wrinkles were visible on my upper lip. All I have to say is THANK YOU ARCONA! This is literally the first "moisturizer" that has worked! Furthermore, I have been using this for literally only 3 weeks and the flaking skin is GONE, my skin is soooo soft, and-never thought this would happen- my wrinkles on my upper lip are almost GONE! This is a miracle product for me!(Don't be turned off by the price, because you only use 1 pump of product for each use). « less

I use Arcona exclusively

3 years ago, I read about Arcona products in a magazine. I went online and found their site and ordered the Basic Five. I have used Arcona exclusively since then. I am nearly 60 years old and people are always commenting on how great my skin looks. The elasticity is good, I have few to no wrinkles, and I no longer have the irritated patches I used to get when using heavy moisturizers. The product line emphasizes frequent exfoliation to renew the surface cells. This is a light moisturizing gel applied after cleansing. The products are quick and easy to use. I don't even get facials any more---if I am in L. A., I go to Arcona Spa and get one of their facials. I don't apply products from any other company to my skin. I am delighted with their line of products.

Meh

I am on the hunt for a new line/regimen. After using La Mer for 2.5 yrs, my skin has become stagnant. I buy everything at Nordstrom (and typically online since I live an hour from the closest store...) so I did a search by my skin type/concerns, etc. and Arcona showed up everywhere. I am 35 and have taken care of my skin since high school. It is, however, very sensitive and tempermental. I have redness/slight rosacea, that I've tried a million products for and have never really found any resolution. I have been able to reduce it for a period of time but never really keep it at bay. Lately, my skin is drier than normal, with flaky particles present when I wake up in the AM. Ok, back to the "magic" ice...I cannot stand the scent of this line! I do not understand what they are trying to accomplish by making everything super fruity smelling. Blek. Also, the consistency of this product is so tacky and sticky, it drove me nuts. With that being said, my skin did appear calm and somewhat corrected in the AM. My redness was lessened but the dry, flaky patches were still present and were somewhat worse. But even with the little improvement I did see, I cannot subject myself to another night of the sticky, stinky stuff. I really wanted to love this line. Thus far, I have returned almost everything. And I have purchased over 20 items. I did keep the toner tea cleanser and the Gentle Solution. Oh, and the pump was screwed up for me, too. I had to pull the plunger out from the bottle and squeeze it a few times to clear the pump. Once it came out, I stuck it back in and repeated this process until it successfully pumped out on its own. I honestly think there are issues with it because the product is so sticky in nature. Returned it. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="5694498460236303009-full" data-show="5694498460236303009-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Lightweight lotion with amazing scent

This lightweight lotion is my daily "go to" each morning. It absorbs quickly, leaves no residue, and has a light fruity scent. I have very dry skin that is sensitive and prone to rosacea, and this daily lotion (gel) is one of the only products that does not cause issues for my skin, or leave my foundation melting off in the Texas heat. I use this every morning, but confess that I use a thicker, creamier cream for evenings. I love this entire product line, and extra points for being animal and environmentally friendly.
